    King Midas, you really must resist the urge to touch yourself.

    On topic, here's a clip about the show:

    (the second chick scares the crap out of me)

    I doubt this game will be entertaining.

    Played this. Very basic, looks better than DoND but the game play is almost non-existent, worse even than DoND. Very poor. Might be better as a multi-player but I have severe doubts about that. On this occasion this is as bad as people probably assume.

    Wouldn't YOU like to know?
    Funny, the Japanese word for testicles is actually ?? (kintama). Literally, golden balls.

    So by that logic Golden Balls = Bollocks. Pretty accurate [​IMG]

    The show has been a huge hit for ITV (UKs second biggest broadcaster) and i am shocked that it has not made it to the USA yet.

    Its a gameshow that involves shouting and arguements, surely 3 things (gameshows, shouting, arguements) most Americans love.

    Saying that this DS version is rubbish.

    This game is rated 100% by 394 voters?!
    We really need to do something about this rate system..It's very misleading!

    This game is actually pretty bad..I don't like it at all!

    Is it just me that was reminded of the Goldmember Austin Power song by the title of this game? ("got the midas touch, touched it too much... goldmember")

    Well, that's probably all the fun most anyone will have off a game such as this, sadly.

    Not exactly 'the word', that's just a slang term, there are more correct ways to say 'testicles' in Japanese.

    The thing that confuses me the most is why they felt the need to label it as NINTENDO DS GAME right across the front.

    It's a bit redundant for them to say "Nintendo DS game" in the center of the box art when it already says that going up the side anyways on the left. As redundant as it being about a month and a half since Animal Boxing was released without any number or infos.

    This is what happens when you include a voting system that lets people vote multiple times. [​IMG]

    Either fix the system to only allow members to vote once like in polls or get rid of it all-together.

    Might I suggest replacing it with Metacritic's meta-rankings?
