Yea SE needs to lay off the Final Fantasy franchise for a while. They have milked this fanboy's wet dream long enough. Hell, the Dirge Of Cerberus game is about Vincent, not Cloud.

But then again, lots of games are being rehashed. So we'll always have to put up with sub-par sequels to great games.

News:

*Lumines 2 has been announced for the PSP
(if anyone even cares)

Damn right i'm dominating.

I'm gonna keep this thread up as much as I can. It's the only game thread I've ever seen here!

News:

*Media Create Software Sales have been released for this week:

1. GBA Mother 3 205,914
2. PS2 DQ Yangus 127,502
3. PS2 FFXI Aht Urghan expansion 75,983
4. DS More Brain Training 70,831 (1,957,633)
5. PSP Dragonball Z 70,559
6. PS2 Okami 60,161
7. DS Brain Training 48,493 (1,977,999)
8. DS Animal Crossing 42,994 (2,505,056)
9. DS Eigo zuke 39,757 (886,471)
10. DS Pokemon Ranger 31,640 (390,641

PS2 and DS have a stranglehold on the chart once again. A great showing for Mother 3, which would be better known under its US name, Earthbound 3 (obviously a Japanese exclusive) Other interesting notes, both Brain Trainings will be reaching the 2million mark by the end of this week. Amazing Nintendo! Way to go Sony for still having huge PS2 numbers!

I heard they aren't actually as boring as one may think a brain "Training" game may be. They give you an age your brain is by calculating your performance in the game. I guess it's supposed to help you exercise the mind.

*News

Tales of the Abyss, which has done well on the PS2 in Japan, is making its way to the States! Like always, the new version will have added content, so high-five gaming pals!

Seeing as posting only Japanese numbers all the time is kinda misleading, here are some French numbers too

1. Animal Crossing: Wild World (DS)
2. Dragon Quest VIII (PS2)
3. Tomb Raider: Legend (PS2)
4. FIFA Street 2 (PS2)
5. Nintendogs: Labrador (DS)
6. Tomb Raider: Legend (Xbox 360)
7. Nintendogs: Dachshund (DS)
8. Ice Age 2: The Meltdown (DS)
9. Tomb Raider: Legend (Xbox)
10. Mario Kart DS (DS)

Unfortunately they are only the positions and not actual sales. Animal Crossing: Wild World is a monster. If you don't own a DS and this game, you're missing out on playing a very addictive game with millions of people!

hey, I got a Nintendo DS, I love it! I just have Mario Kart DS and Metroid Prime: Hunters, both are addictive... but I need more, what games do you recommend me?

I'm pretty faithful to Sony, but the PSP was more expensive XD anyway, I'm looking forward PS3 of course! I've heard comments about Xbox 360 and its disappointing results

Well Xbox360 has done pretty ok in America. Which one would expect. However, in Japan and Europe, not so much. The monthly hardware sales put it barely abovethe Gamecube which is Nintendo's current console, that's pretty sad for a "next-gen" console. Plus with overheating, and other issues, the 360 is off to a rocky start.

As for the DS? Well it really depends on what types of games you like to play.
In my opinion though, any DS library would be well-off if it included these titles:

Animal Crossing:Wild World
Nintendogs (somewhat a hit and miss for most people, can get dull if you aren't into the game)
Kirby's Canvas Curse
Trauma Center: Under The Knife (another hit and miss)
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney
Braing Age (huge Japanese craze)
Tetris DS
Advanced Wars: Duel Strike (real-time strategy game, great reviews)
Castlevania: Dawn Of Souls
Mario & Luigi: Partners In Time
Meteos

thanks, all gamers I know love Nintendogs, I will buy it

and I'll check the other titles as well

my favorite kind of games are fighting games but... I really don't see the point of buy this kind of games for the NDS, I wanna use and enjoy all the possibilities of this portable console

talking about fighting titles... my current addiction is Marvel vs. Capcom 2 (for PS2)

I cannot find Phoenix Wright anywhere. Apparently it's been discontinued. I'll probably break down and get it on ebay.

I'm playing Brain Age now. It's like having little homework problems. I think it's great. If you like crosswords and number games, it's well worth it. Very unique. And the little guy that guides you along kills me. What a freak.

I loved Tales of Symphonia..i've clocked it twice so far

Twas just great fun and quite funny at times...even if that was just for daft dialogue

But Tales of the Abyss looks excellent!

I want a new Skies of Arcadia game. Ever since I played that, I compare all other RPGs to it. I enjoyed Tales of Symphonia as well. Probabl best "Japanese style" RPG I've played since SoA.

Oh don't worry LJT, you are not alone. I must have beaten that game around 4 or 5 times already. It's addictive! You're right though, the dialogue can get so cheesy. "You Desian bastards!"

News:

*Phoenix Wright has actually been put back in stores due to popular demand. You just have to know where to look, and get lucky enough to find a copy:
http://www.gamespot.com/ds/adventure...76&mode=recent

*Keeping with the sales, here are the top 10 for the UK this past week:

1: Tomb Raider Legends (Multi-Format).
2: Ice Age 2: The Meltdown (Multi-Format).
3: Animal Crossing: Wild World (DS).
4: FIFA Street 2 (Multi-Format).
5: The Godfather (Multi-Format).
6: The Sims 2: Family Fun Stuff (PC).
7: Worldwide Soccer Manager 2006 (PC).
8: Tom Clancy's G.R.A.W (Multi-Format).
9: Buzz: The BIG Quiz (PS2).
10: Elder Scrolls 4: Oblivion (Multi-Format).

Ice Age in the #2 spot? I don't wanna call UK gamers casual but...

*Sony releases worlwide PS2 & PSP shipment #'s for April 1st, 2005 - March 31st, 2006
http://www.gamefront.de

PS2 - 16.22 million
PSP - 14.06 million

Keep in mind that this is only SHIPPED units, they have not been sold yet. Sony seems to only think that stocking them on the shelves means they have been purchased, at least by retailers.

*Konami will be making a Revolution exclusive game titled "Elebits". Here is the first artwork released for the game. I have no idea, looking at this, what it's about:

Looks interesting though

Me and my wee sister ahh did our own dialogue for Tales of Symphonia...we eroticised all of it

I just don't get how absolutely stupid the characters were, Lloyd may have been normal thick but the girl Collete just made me mad Plus the whole Angelus Toxicosis thing is definitely up there with one of the silliest things ive ever heard!
