    In my opinion, GBATemp should give hadrian a staff position and ask him to do this fairly regularly for the site. I think that with all the expanding that GBATemp has been doing lately, it'd be a welcome addition.

    Other than that, I'm now really excited to see how the NY Times Crossword game plays.

    Oh, and everything Naruto can fall into a river and drown.

    Nice work on this, hadrian. Looking forward to the crossword puzzle one too. The kids and I had fun with the PSP crossword puzzle game but the controls left a lot to be desired in it, I kept thinking how much better it would be on a DS.

    Cheers for the good responses, and I've changed the info on Naruto. Wasn't sure if that was 3 or 4 as most sites I've looked up said it was NSND 3 but some said 4 so it was kinda confusing.

    Might do links to video clips next time. If theres any other ideas than please say.

    It seems like Elder Prince from Blossomsoft has finished his pixelart work on the game so it should be ready now, in the line for release.
