    "When four people get in a taxi where does the most important person site"

    !?!?!?!?!??!!
    How the $*&% should I know???

    Multiplayer with one DS looks cool, like advance wars but with questions.

    The stock game looks cool-very unusual game.

    What sort of a game is spectobe?A FF style RPG?-Looks okay.

    The driving seat, surely? And the Stock game shouldn't be mixed up with Konami/Hideo Kojima's Stock Training title. This Capcom effort is more like a Phoenix Wright, fun adventure game with a stock trading setting.

    As for Spectrobes, its a Buena Vista Games title developed by Jupiter Corp (who did Pok

    I assumed one of the four was the driver... Smilie What are some of the other questions (if you don't mind)?

    Looking good! I hope Spectrobes does well so that it can become a nice little Nintendo exclusive and third party franchise (how many of those have been popping up since Wii? Smilie)...and to Grumbler who might just dismiss it as milking of a newly born cash calf, well, meh, is what I say Smilie

    I bet the localization people will earn their pay with this Common Knowledge Training one. I would think many questions might need to be completely changed, replaced, or thrown-out. I don't think NA, Europe, Japan would share completely similar "common-knowledge".

    You are on your own and asked to sit down in a persons living room, where do you sit?

    When you leave the dinner table half way through a meal, which is the correct way to lay you knife & fork?

    What part of the pig is shaded in red?

    Which item here is least fit for freezing?

    A wedding invitation was sent like this, tap the mistakes.

    @ZeroSimon

    Is that the translation?

    Yeah, he's kindly translated some of the screens from the folder...Try answering them if you can! Smilie

    Sounds like fun! Hope there's more than just questions like that, since it's more expensive than the other Training games in Japan.

    I'm up to the third case in Phoenix Wright 2, by the way, so if Capcom gets this Stock Trader game spot-on, it'll be an instant buy for me! Smilie

    cool. why on Earth anyone would need Common Knowledge training is news to me though :-p

    perhaps it'd translate better as General Knowledge training...

    it's a wanna-be-manga game from buenavista games. It's looking actually good.
    For an American game.

    I find your lack of faith disturbing!

    I am so having Stock Trader Shun. Would be great if they'd do a dual language release as they've been doing with the Phoenix Wright games...

    If you're on your own, who asks you???
    Does this game do trick questions??

    I do say: It's about manners, SKI. It's important in Japan to do things right:
    * When you got a present from a guest visiting you, you do not open it, because that's considered rude and selfish.
    not only in Japan:
    * When you leave your seat through a meal but not finished it, you lay your fork and co side by side on either left or right side on the plate, but not across from top corner to opposite down the other corner. That signals you have done eating and waiters or hosts can take it away. Under no circumstances shall fork or knife (or whatever) lay on the plate and touch the table cloth.

    that are some more special, but more sophisicated manners teached in this game. It's true that this game has to be changed for every region to reflect the differences. In Germany for example you should open the present you got from the guest and be bloody hell happy about it, that the guest can see, that he's bought something good for you.
    In America it's common to shoot first and ask questions later. In Germany no one has weapons at home to do so. ;-P

    /edit: surely I fucked it up: You lay fork and knife open wide in a turned-up V-style on your plate. closing it like this II or // means 'I'm ready with my meal'. Sorry.

    And I think you sit on the right side of the church when looking to the altar when you are a friend of the man-of-the-bride. But That I do not know for sure. Tricky questions here... Love them already!

    I've been playing the Japanese version...and suffice to say can't get far without knowledge of Japanese! Smilie However, there are some questions where you don't need to read the text, as there are numbers and pictures that make it quite obvious.

    The set up is just like brain training, with graphs charting your daily progress and cheesey music playing in the background...but no Dr. Kawashima face to scare you this time! Smilie
