    Oh, awesome. That means my Amazon order should drop in in the next days.

    Did they get rid of the IGN background on the boxart, btw? XD

    Yes, in UK lots of stores complained about the IGN watermark, especially HMV, and now if you preordered or you have the IGN cover, you can take it back and exchange for the one above. I think there is also extra artwork included.

    I finished the game on PS2 and it's probably one of my favourite games, very original and very long (around 40hrs), lot's of cultural references and awesome design.
    Aramatsu FTW and for Brawl! Would fit perfectly!

    Got the PS2 version and never bothered finishing it. But the Wii version may tempt me back.

    You lot need a crash course in getting ntsc games working on pal. It's as easy as slipping in the freeloader disk.

    But if you've been waiting for this game a while, you won't be disappointed, it's a true classic. I still haven't finished it, well I thought I had about three times but it just keeps on going.

    I always wait for PAL games in the hopes that they have English as opposed to American. I also feel dirty using them anyway.

    Not all tv's can output the NTSC signal in color though. The tv downstairs for example (the one my wii's usually hooked up to), gives me black and white output. Then there are also people with tv's who can't even output NTSC. Not everyone has a shiney newish television.

    I hope people I know and never played it on PS2 will like it regardless of the fighting lag with the Wiimote.
    It's a little annoying to wait the good time to attack again, but it's a very good game to play and know. One of my favorite [​IMG]


    Edit : anyone know the difference with the "LCD" in-game option ?
    I didn't find anything different in the rendering process.

    My portable TV in the bedroom gave up a few months ago, the local rubbish dump shuts at 8pm so I popped in and picked a portable up from there and it worked for NTSC games, it's hardly shiny and new. These people must have some old TV's.
