    We're getting screwed again. Just got the release date for Paper Mario from amazon.co.uk. November 30th!!!! What a joke. I know I can play the NTSC version. But I don't want to be wondering if the firmware is going to knacker up my wii. Even though I have the latest firmware.

    Completely unbelievable and inexcusable.

    Nintendo said a while ago that European owners won't get these huge delays any more on DS and Wii titles, just goes to show they were talking bull shit.

    *Happily plays NTSC version* Fuck you NoE.

    Edit: Oh yeah and I finally imported Wario Ware Twisted. Heh, not even going to get into that one *cough 2+ years*

    Tsk. Yeah, I'm going to import that game since playing it with the rom and patch just defeats the purpose of twisting it.

    PS. Now we know why Europe keeps getting screwed.

    The PAL delays is what's going to make me want to get a Wii chip... but I'm still waiting for a proper modchip.

    Yep, like with everything else, PAL users get screwed. I think here in Australia Elite Beat Agents has just been released, and I finished that game half a year ago

    What? are you saying that WW: Twisted hasn't been released in the UK yet? It's been out in Australia for.. I don't know a looong time. I bought a copy for $20 on clearance nearly a year ago and my mate had bought it good couple of months before me.
    I know with DS games in Australia we often get the US cart. Can it be that we sometimes get the US cart here while you guys in the UK have to wait for the Euro multi language version?

    Language isn't the problem with WW:T. IIRC it's got a tilt sensor with a quantity of mercury in it that isn't allowed in the EU... or something like that.

    Would make a lot of sense for US games to just be released in Australia seeing as it doesn't require the time for translating into different languages. Then again, I heard rumours that WW: Twisted cannot be sold in UK because of the amount of mercury in it or something.

    BTW, even if EBA is released in Europe, what are the chances that each region will get an exclusive song? Or could it be that they could just release the game with the same soundtrack but spend more time on getting European voice actors?

    TROIS, DEUX , UN.

    it suxx to wait for the pal games... but hey:

    we got wii play with release (one extra wiimote from the start! and a wiimote demo which nobody wants now)

    we get mario strikers charged on 25th this month... with online play [​IMG]



    but i had to wait very long for excite truck.. they made eledees from elebits, which just came 5 days ago .. well, i got a modchip because they fuck up with this bullshit in europe. Why cant they just translate it and release it? it isnt that hard... for a game like zelda, or paper mario you may need some time cuz of all the text, but over 6 months for paper mario? Omg..

    *plays ntsc version*

    I always wondered. Why do they have to lump all 5 EU translations into one game? Phoenix Wright was released with different languages in different regions. One contained english and french while several months later, they released the Spanish and German and Italian version.
