Is this the first slate of Neo Geo games for the VC? Some of them are pretty good looking games and fun to play, but I was never a Neo Geo fan during its original run so this probably isn't as exciting for me as it is for some other gamers.

I didn't even know that NeoGeo games were coming to the VC. These three I'm not particularly excited for, but there are others (King of Fighters '97, I'm looking in your direction) that I can not wait for. This is fantastic news to me.

I didn't realize the Bleach game came out this week. Those blasted commercials only kept saying coming soon. Anyone have any idea if it (or the DS game) are any good?

I've heard the DS game is the best (North American) fighter on the system, which isn't saying much of anything. Have heard very little about the Wii version thus far, though.

Nintendo held a press conference in Japan earlier.

Some blue porcupine-like thing is now unveiled as a character in Brawl (amongst other things).

Jeezum Crow, Smash Bros. Brawl is already a must-own as it is. But now you're telling me I can have Mario, Sonic, and Solid Snake in one match? FUCK...YES!!!

New Wii updates this morning! I found three messages from Nintendo in my inbox, all relating to the new Wii Menu version 3.1. The most relevant change: you can now use a USB keyboard.

The system update errored out twice for me this morning. I gave up and decided to try again after work. Did this happen to anyone else?

I never played the original, but I've heard so much about it... How will they manage the expectations of people who have been waiting 10 years for this game?

Smash Bros. Brawl being delayed until February saddens me to no end, and I'm not even good at Melee.

I finally got it to work last night. My iMac keyboard works great (and it matches the Wii...bonus!), but I don't think I'll be using the feature much until I get a wireless keyboard or at least one with a longer cord. Trying to type and use the Wiimote that close to the TV at the same time is a BAAAAAD combination.

That happened to me the first time, although my internet connection had been crappy all day, so I just chalked it up to that ...
