LOL @ GAF They are so awesome with their gif's.

Yeah Uncharted did pretty strong. Nice to see Forza 3 in there but it deserves better. Nice sales for Borderlands although I'm not too surprised since I couldn't find a copy when I went to get one not too long ago. A shame Tekken 6 didn't make the cut though.

Oh and Jack Bauer is awesome.

Biggest surprise on that list to me is Kingdom Hearts DS charting.  That game was average at best.  Guess Kingdom Hearts is a stronger franchise in the US than I realized.  I just hope SE doesn't get any funny ideas and try to put the next KH game on the DS.  No more portables for that series please.

Also nice to see the Lufia series making a return.  For the most part the series was just slightly better than average, but Lufia 2: Rise of the Sinistrals was fantastic.  Very overlooked 16 bit RPG.  Certainly a game I'd pick up if it showed up on the VC.  If the next game could be as good as that one, then it's a very welcome return in my eyes.

Can we get a ban on posting Kotaku links in the updates? Thier site runs these weirdo scripts which always slow down and stall IE8.

And why are you using IE8 to begin with?

General laziness. Oh and Opera doesn't work with FDManager.

Made up?

Maybe you shouldn't click ont he Kotaku links? Nyaa

Awesome numbers for Uncharted 2, deserves it. Wii back on top, that price drop did wonders, just wait till Mario hits and the holiday season of course. Any thought of the Wii slowing down should be stopped now, it will be back at full force, nothing is stopping that machine.

Second month in a row that the PS3 is ahead of the 360, by a large margin too. Next moth is the true test of course.

Wii Fit Plus is second, wow. But it will stay there FOREVER. Nice to see Borderlands do so well. When did Forza hit, cause yikes.

Gaf had more numbers, DJ Hero bombed. Demon's Souls sold over 100k. Brutal Legend sold 260k total.

Yay I finally get to play Braid!

It's finally on the PS3 and I bought it as soon as it hit. I am near 2 hours in, finished 3 worlds and only have two left. It seems like a very short game sadly. But at least its been great every moment. It is more of a puzzle game than a platformer, which is fine by me. Each area has presented some new adjustment to the gameplay, keeps the puzzles fresh. The puzzles so far have been just right in terms of difficulty. I almost have forgotten what a quality video game puzzle is like, this game reminds me that most games have puzzles for 2 year olds.

And you don't even watch 24.

NPD, niiiiiiiiiiice for a PS3 exclusive to be no 1.

Wii is back? Is that a good thing? Looks like 360 may be last for a while till Natal hits?

So is Chinatown wars officially a bomb on PSP and DS now?

I played more Fallout 3 last night, its getting better. Its just like Oblivion but yeah like others have said I prefer the swords and sorcerers, lush green forests and riding horses and fighting trolls. Fallout 3 is ugly, which is the point I guess  but I would have preferred the game to be set maybe a thousand years after worldwide nuclear meltdown so that the natural world had started to reclaim the earth.

Oh gawd....

Cavia helped convince Capcom that Resident Evil 5 is possible on Wii

“At Resident Evil 5’s launch, it was announced that a Wii version was not technically possible. But after some of the work that Cavia has done (with RE: Darkside Chronicles), the producers of Resident Evil 5 over in Japan now think it is possible. Some of the light effects in the South America stage are pretty incredible. Whether it is going to come, I don’t know the answer to that question. But, it has been said that now at least it is possible.” - Product manager Matt Dahlgren

Did some updates.

Nintendo Power info/reviews:

It seems I've been getting my Nintendo Power subscription early recently, so I figured I'd make the thread.

Overall, a fairly good issue, with 4 page features on Spirit Tracks and Monster Hunter.

The issue also contains an interview with George Kamitani of Vanillaware, although I've read too many of these lately to bother with NP's interview, which are typically insipid.

There's also a baffling retrospective on the DS of all systems_ must be running short on material.

Mr. Phil T. contributes a delightful look back at Golgo 13 for NES.

Now on to the stuff you care about:

Mario - 9.0
+improves on NSMB DS in every way
+less linear levels and world maps
+best multiplayer in a mario yet
+some of the advance play videos are amazing to watch (sounds like DK:JB)
-waggle to spin, sometimes happens by accident
-doesn't like the save point structure

Silent Hill - 8.0
+good use of wiimote
+psychological profile which affects game based on choices
+creative and varied puzzles
-not scary, lacks sense of danger

Shaun White 2 - 7.0

Call of Duty: Reflex - 9.0

RE: Darkside - 8.0

Need for Speed Nitro - 7.0

Rabbid Wii & DS - 7.0

C.O.P. - The Recruit - Starlet of Nintendo's E3 Conference - 4.0

NEWS (i haven't been following that closely so i don't know how new this really is):

Spirit Tracks
-Link must dodge evil trains as he travels between map locations on the tracks, sounds like an old arcade game
-do not have to replay any section on the hub dungeon, although you can to find secrets
-apparently Link only escorts Zelda in the hub dungeon
-elsewhere Zelda plays the Navi role

Pokemon Rumble
-Recommended by reviewer
-1500 points
-a demo will be available
-available Nov. 16th
-exclusive Nintendo Power Pokemon Venusaur, code is 1589-3955

There's a cliched little retrospective on TG-16. This probably means nothing, but, I found it interesting that there is a screenshot for Rondo of Blood. Every other game screencapped has been released on VC.

Can someone who has played COD4 with dual analog answer this? How you cope with the more hectic levels? Do you use the auto lock on feature a lot?

Have you ever tried beating the game without it? Do you think that you could beat the game without it?

So is Chinatown wars officially a bomb on PSP and DS now?

I've been saying this was going to happen the entire time.   At least on the DS it moved 200K copies in its first month.  Its clear that people just didn't like the overhead style of the game. Pity.  But I'll be real interested to see how it spins now.  When Chinatown Wars only sold 200K critics were all quick to blame the DS' lack of a mature audience.  So what's the spin now with the PSP?  

Very sad to see A Boy and His Blob sell so poorly. I honestly thought it would break 25K. Still it's not a surprise. You can't sell on a game on the Wii and not market it and still expect it to sell.  After spending a couple hours with it, I can tell you that if they just did some simple marketing to let people know the game exists it would have done okay.  I never saw so much as a cut-out or poster for it at Gamespot.  This game could have had a wide audience - younger kids who would like the art style to adults who played the original and wanted to try the remake.

Nice to see all the great NSMB reviews, can't wait to play it.

RE with an 8, sweet. SH with an 8 too, the problem is I expected more from this. 8 is a great score but some of those review points I don't like.
