microsoft is nuts if they think they can sell natal for $150

cecchemi 05/28/10 11:10 PM

zomg. KEYTAR!

Also, insanely excited for Pokemon Black and White. I'm iffy on the new legendaries but they're pretty cool. Also, the PS3 Move intruiges me.

marchofmarty 05/28/10 11:13 PM

lol @ the new Pokemon legendaries. as much as I loved red+blue and gold+silver they really need to give it up. it's pretty obvious they have ran out of ideas for new Pokemon.

also the link inside the link regarding OoT and SMG2 shows that OoT has a higher rating so I don't get it.

and yay for more Starcraft2 I really wasn't looking forward to digging up my Brood War disc again

jwicklun 05/28/10 11:20 PM

Super Mario Galaxy is a fantastic game, but for me Ocarina of Time holds a very dear place in my heart.

WordzandDreamz 05/28/10 11:55 PM

Link to the Past crushes ocarina.

lemontie 05/29/10 12:32 AM

I hope everyone enjoys the expanded round up. More sources and a bit more separation of topics. Hopefully easier to read and such.

aradiantsunrise 05/29/10 12:43 AM

New legendary Pokemon look bad ass.

Stoked for the keytar, haha.

im hoping for both rhythm and lead guitars in the new rockband. and oh yeah back up vocals for songs like feeling this, but i think im getting tired of music games. oh im also picking up backbreaker tuesday. should be fun but i hope they will release a update so we can play it with the traditional camera angle

BigG1392 05/29/10 05:35 AM

fuck yeah Pokemon

and SMG2 is pretty awesome

iden22 05/29/10 05:53 AM

Can't wait to see the first songs for RB3. Bohemian Rhapsody has to be a given.

I don't care for Guitar Hero's gimmicks or some of their song choices so far.

SomedayTheFire 05/29/10 06:48 AM

Natal is not worth $150
