    I demand a response from someone from France, I also thought they were pretty tight about allowing foreign words into their language.

    surely they used it because it's an english word, and learning english is sort of the point of this game?

    It's not for the French, it's for our french speaking Canadian buddies! [​IMG]

    Or maybe the guy on the cover is just called Buddy.

    Every month barring last March has been shit games month for the DS. And worse, they'd rather invest in new ways of stopping people pirating shit games instead of going back to making anything decent. It's sad that the GBA releases overall are better quality than the ~4000 DS games full of

    Ahh, I'm ranting.

    Hey, now. There's supposed to be some good DS games coming out around now:

    Jagged Alliance
    Puzzle Kingdoms
    Steal Princess
    Anno 1404

    Also, Super Robot Taisen OG Saga: Endless Frontier and The Dark Spire were pretty good.

    Well while "Buddy" may not be in the French or German dictionaries, it might be in the "Marketing for Dummies" guide.

    Larousse are probably using "Buddy" as a marketing brand for their software, in the same way "Ubisoft" rapes the word "Imagine..." although I'm sure Larousse isn't going to sexually assault "Buddy". They are going to get to know "Buddy", candle light dinner, walks by the beach, some poetry may even be written.
