    Anyone else notice the huge lack of US releases these days? Anyone know what the deal is? It seems like only first party get any love. Times like these I wish I had that LG drive.

    Well I mean like lack of releases online, not the store. I should clarify that part.

    Yes, Nintendo...what can I say

    Yeah sorry about that, I forgot to put "released online" in the OP. There are a quite a few missing, and it seems kind of weird when you have a PAL release coming out before the US one, and the pal one was released how many days later.

    Oh to mean dumped right?

    The Euro scene (DS & Wii) seems to be getting better while the US groups seem to be dumping them a bit later than before, perhaps they're being more cautious? Although most will, we can't really complain as well its piracy really. Only way you can get these games is well going into a store and risking money on a game that might suck ass.

    I wish Nintendo would do demo discs.

    Cue BoneMonkey and his damning on us piraters [​IMG]

    If your thinking the US get a bad deal with US games, you should try living in europe. We don't get metroid prime 3 until this Friday. The US got trauma center at release date, we were waiting around 9 months for it.

    Seems at the moment the wii scene isn't as comeptitive as others, especially the dvd scene. So there's not really much of a race, things just get pre'd whenever.

    you know that if the mario demo was a anticipated dvd it would already be all over the internet. just the state of things at the moment i guess.

    but everything does get pre'd eventually, so we'll just have to wait it out. zack and wiki only got released today (shipped yesterday) so it should be upped sometime tonight or tomorrow.
