Trip to the Game Store: July, 24 2007

Tuesday, July 24th, 2007

Not a lot of news, I bought a Game Boy Player for My Game Cube, because I can’t find Datel’s Advance Game Port. I really hope that Nintendo will make a Game Boy player for the Wii someday.The price was lowered today, from $30 to $20.

GameStop and EBgames are now taking reserves on Super Mario Galaxy, Super Smash Bros. Brawl and Fire Emblem. When all was said and done, I reserved Super Mario Galaxy, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Simpsons: The Game, Tony Hawk’s Proving Ground, and Madden NFL ’08. Another interesting fact is that Manhunt 2 is still available for reserve for October with a Mature rating. That’s not the real case thou currently Manhunt 2 is rated AO, and an AO rating well never be seen in a Game Stop or EB Games. The “Respect The Ratings” pamphlet didn’t even address the AO rating.

A few more little tidbits. I picked up Nintendo’s ’07 Catalog. Mario Party DS and Madden ’08 for the DS will both be Wi-fi. I didn’t see a Wi-Fi logo on Madden ’08 for the Wii though even thou I now it will be, but their is one for Battalion Wars 2.
