My most recent buy was The Urbz: Sims in the City, and The Sims: Busting Out! I should probably sell Busting Out! though, it isn't as good.

Babies, chum: tiny, dimpled, fleshy mirrors of our us-ness, that we parents hurl into the future, like leathery footballs of hope.

Not a purchase of my own, but my most recent game recieved as a gift...

Mario Kart DS

Coming from someone who's been a big MarioKart fan since the SNES (I was a master at the original :D) ... it is fun as heck. But Dan needs to stop beating me. >: (

Oh and Ni-Ban, I agree about Soul Calibur III... ;_; Character creation mode looks freakin' sweeeet.

A word of warning: if you're planning to buy SoulCal3 solely based on the character creation, rent first. There are only 3 slots to save a character, and it's more like a dress-up game than actual creation. I like the way they do movesets, but a lot of people don't. I bought the game cold, and I'm happy with it overall, but not for the creations.

Be careful with this one, there is a bit of a pun involved. Dr. Spooner described his visit to a castle: "In the center of the fortress was the Palace Court. The gated entrance to this area was the court palace."

*shrugs* early post I guess, but I know of one game I'm getting for Christmas:

mario & Luigi: Partners in Time

sequel to Superstar Saga, which I never played, but saw the speed run of it... adn just laughed non-stop. that game was crazy, and Mario RPGs tend to be really good, and a good laugh too. XD

You can buy extra slots for custom characters at the Item Shop. I agree, though, that there's really little for there to customize other than your character's appearance.

My most recent game was Final Fantasy 4 Advance. I'm loving it so far. This is probably the best version of FF4 out in the US so far.

Last night, I bought DDR EXTREME 2. And by God, it was a LOT better than I thought it would be (minus the crappy cover of "Oops I Did It Again" and a few of the rap songs -__-). It's definetely a lot better than the first DDR EXTREME, a very obvious improvement, indeed.

The songs were all pretty good, too. Currently, my favorite song is "Irresistablement"... I think that's what it's called, but I'm more than certain that the song title really isn't a word o___O;;; .

The graphics are good, not as distracting, and not as bright (I could have sworn, the very first time I played DDRMAX, that I had retinal damage @[email protected]).

Plus I like the cover. :3 I'm a fan girl when it comes to blue. XD So, am I happy I made this purchase? Hell yeah.

Last night, I also bought Banjo Kazooie, totally forgetting why I stopped playing in the first place.... It was ANNOYING! LOL, but it's still fun to play... Brings back some memories. ^_^

Not exactly accurate. You can buy more slots at the Items Shop.

---EFB---

However, the number of slots is doubled since you can load from cards from both Slot 1 and Slot 2 (though you'll need two memcards to do that).

But SC3's character creation has nowhere near the level of detail the Smackdown! series has been using for years.

I got quite a few new games for Christmas. Mostly GBA games.

-Donkey Kong Country 2+3 (I've been searching for the original one for months and not even my parents could find it.. was it a limited edition game? Why don't any stores carry it anymore?)
-Dr Mario & Puzzle League
-Mother 1+2 (Earthbound- It's not actually in my posession yet, but will come in the mail soon)

I didn't get all the games I wanted for Christmas, so since it was Boxing Day today, I got some good deals on:

-Mario Kart DS (definately the most challenging Mario Kart game I've played so far!)
-Wi-Fi connector

Well, I see multiple copies on eBay, and they're reasonably priced, so I'd say they weren't limited edition.

I got Yu-Gi-Oh! Forbidden Memories (PSone) and Forbidden Siren (PS2) this christmas.
My youtube-account / My multiply-account

I dunno. I was just looking at it and I suddenly got this urge to get inside. No, not just an urge - more than that. It was my destiny to be here; in the box. And then when I put it on, I suddenly got this feeling of inner peace. I can´t put it into words. I feel... safe. Like this is where I was meant to be. Like I´d found the key to true happiness.

I'm not a big fan of ebay. I've heard too many horror stories about people getting ripped off on there, so I'm afraid of even going on there ^_^;

I haven't been able to find them in any local retailers anywhere. I find it odd that none of them seem to carry it.
