Sad week this week. I'd actually consider the Karaoke game, but I still have to get through all of Rock Band. And I'd get Mappy for the Virtual Console if only it was coming out here, but I can gladly pass on the weak North American offerings - though when I was a kid, everyone LOVED Operation Wolf for reasons I was never clear on.
Noriko didn't bother me much, once I cast a single spell -- Wall of Water. That shut down her primary damage spell (Maha Aques), and once I figured out how to counter Old Maid (by defending), she wasn't hard at all.
