    Only one NA release but it looks like a good one. Also some good lookers for Japan and erm also some dirty ones.

    <!--coloro:Purple--><span style="color:Purple"><!--/coloro--><b><u>Read to know when a game could be dumped:</u>
    These dates are what retailers say is out unless stated otherwise, sometimes they make dates up for pre-ordering purposes. These dates could also be "shipping dates" which usually means that that's the date when games get shipped to stores so a game could either be in stores on that day or after. Some games may get delayed some others not listed may appear but at the moment of posting these are correct. Also just because a game is released in stores it doesn't mean that they'll appear on our internets but NA titles usually appear on our 'nets Wednesday night UK time.

    AIR TRAFFIC CONTROOOOOL I've been gone, I've been up away from home. Love that song, and I might be into this game too. Its a port of the ZX81/C64/BBC Mirco game though.

    In Air Traffic Chaos, players use the Touch Screen to safely manage takeoffs, gate assignments and landings for all incoming and outgoing airport traffic for 14 different airlines in varying weather conditions. Outstanding performance will earn players 16 different merit badges, including Veteran ATC and ATC Legend. An in-depth tutorial teaches players the basics of managing the busy skies while three difficulty levels with five stages in each offer plenty of challenge. Players can also share their high scores with up to 7 friends while Rumble Pack support makes the experience more realistic for aspiring air traffic controllers.

    This was released in Japan a while ago as Air Traffic Chaos: I Am An Air Traffic Controller! and kudos to Maejsco in bringing this out elsewhere.

    You know if you're into cartoon ladies than that's fine but this verges on paedofillia.

    The player assumes the role of junior high school student Akuji. He has been asked by an angel, Lulu, to locate a witch that has snuck into his school. In order to find the witch Akuji must search the suspects' bodies for a "witch mark". The preferred method is by using touch (using the stylus to guide his hands). So yeah you go around groping 12-23 year olds in a hope to discover if they are a witch or not

    Reviews say its a pretty awful game. There is a trailer but if you really need to see it then seek help.

    <b>Region</b> Japan <b>Genre:</b> Rhythm

    The GBA game was the last classic that Nintendo graced the GBA with and was a shame that it never got an release outside of Japan.

    In case you don't know RTG is a game much like Wario Ware. Each level is a minigame which requires the player to perform certain actions in sync with the rhythm to create a beat to go along with the background music. For instance, in one level, a beat is created by hitting numerous baseballs as they pass across the screen. If the player is unable to match the correct timing, they receive a "half hit" or "miss" rating. These misses are counted and used to determine a pass-or-fail score. Many of the other minigames involve similar activities that require the player to rely on the rhythm of the background music for timing. The highest total score attainable in the game is 140 points. In order to receive this score, the player must complete every single minigame in one try without missing the timing by 1/60th of a second.

    It is totally playable for the none Japanese speaking folk but it is being localised as Rhythm Heaven for outside of Japan, and that is released later this year.

    A new fighter from Ninja Studio who have previously done the two Izuna titles.

    It looks a bit mediocre in the trailer and the animation is lacklustre but fuck we hardly get any fighters so I'll give it a go.

    A puzzle compilation developed by DDI! Void? Nah I guess its worth a go, they can't mess it up TOO much though anyone with cash should get Nintendo's own Crossword game.

    Crossword, Sudoku, Word Search, and Fitword puzzles with 2,000 puzzles and three difficulty levels.

    Out in Europe is <b>Margot's Word Play</b> but be warned its by Zoo Digital and most of the stuff they release is cacky.

    I forgot to do the Wii bit this week but there is only one game worth bothering with and that is MLB Power Pros 2008, aside from that the rest are crappy looking cheaply made games, which is a shame as the Wii deserves much better.

    <u><b>No thread next week</b></u>

    There is very little out anyway apart from Race Driver: Grid & the Japanese only Fire Emblem & Summon Night 2 and absolutely nothing for the Wii. The only reason I did this one was because there was others listed but hey ho delays/made up dates are common in the DS world. Thread will return in two weeks where I'd undoubtedly go on about how Bangai-O Spirits isn't a proper Bangai-O game etc though making levels is alright.

    whatdayamean by further [​IMG] ? Anyway, I think it got a 30 or something from Famitsu... still not gonna try it, 1 was too disappointing.

    Nice Thread as always, good that we always have a nice "Hadrian Release Thread" to look forward most of the time, really makes the time flow get intact again.

    Oooo Rhythm Tengoku Gold. I have the Fully-Awesome-Legit-I-Assure-You GBA version (read: rom), but i never played it. Never really knew what it was, just heard it was great. Can't wait for this one! (now that i know what the game is lol).

    Mmm, Bangai-O Spirits US. Hey, what about Korg-DS10? Is that soon? (sorry, just popped into my head)

    Is 30th July a firm release date for Air Traffic Chaos? I go on holiday in early morning of 1st August and would like to play it, but IGN and Amazon say 12th August.

    Thank you.
