Its the second instance within a few weeks of a Ninty game being pulled because it calls you a spastic if you don't do well. Strange really, given a spastic's lack of co-ordination probably makes it an accurate allegory for poor DS/Wii players.

The first game was not a Nintendo game. It was Mind Quiz from UbiSoft.


And Mario Party 8 don't call you spastic, as one can see in the picture in the thread I linked to.

Just got Transformers for the 360.

Visually impressive, probably not a game I will play much. Got it for my son to play. All the other titles I have on the 360 are too adult for him.

TWENTY BLOODY QUID mind. It hasn't arrived yet. I do hope it's actually a decent game too...
What?!! If I can pick up a copy down here for 8 quid. Either you got in a mad bidding war on Ebay, are very picky in only buying a brand new copy or got ripped off. The game is quite addictive & easy to get into so maybe it will be worth the money to you.
I take back my earlier comment as I have read Antiriad's comment on using the UMD to downgrade the PSP & watched the very high Ebay prices. I will wash my mouth with soap and water now.

I'm actually rather pleased with it. It did the job without a hitch :D, and it appears to be a cracking game to boot, very swish and tasty.


I suck at it though :(

Loco Roco is the PSP game to get imho. Mercury I can't quite get to grips with and its presentation is shocking (sorry Archer), though I get on better with Mercury Meltdown.

Exit is dirt cheap - Asda had it for a tenner at the weekend. Reminds me I must go back and finsih it, a very nice puzlle game that one.
