Diddy Kong Racing DS: Great idea or GREATEST idea? Despite the the subpar score Gamespot game it, Diddy Kong Racing was always one of my favourite N64 games. Especially playing single player with a friend. lol

I'm curious about how Diddy Kong Racing DS will come out. Wonder if it's going to be as worth buying as Mario Kart DS, and if it's going to be different from Mario Kart DS at all.

Starfox has been put back about 3 times for EU release now, I was looking forward to it being released first week of November!. Now it looks like i'll be buying mine from Play Asia (at half the price too!). Considering that the DS games are all region free, unless you enjoy buying stupidly late & over priced games then there's no excuse not to import them from the US.

WOAH! I think the DS is going to sell na absolute BUCKET LOAD of stuff this christmas. Its going to be awesome for nintendo. I think sudoku master will prove to be very popular as a christmas gift for the men (and ladies) and the typical pokemon/mario games will be top with the kids. Whilst teen gamers and older will be getting into a range of everything. Especially Phoenix Wright 2!!!! With the ds lite going to be pink aswell... man the wii is going to have some good rep already with the ds acting as a good vibe for the name. I wish the wii was coming out in different colours though... :(

everyone in the UK (including myself) will be able to get most of those titles the same time as the US from this website www.cd-wow.com for example you can get 5 of the titles not coming out in the UK until xmas or new year and they're cheap.

I wish Americans would stop joking about European release dates. I am not happy with Nintendo being always so late either but... that's the way it is since 5 years. When Nintendo finally announces a game to be published in Europe, I usually already have it cause by the time they (NoE) announce it, the game is out of print elsewhere and would be hard to get if not published in Europe. I could scream about the Phoenix Wright thingy... in March 2006 they say, that it is not going to be published in Germany because of the difficulties in translation... in November 2006 the first part will finally be released. - At least, big games like Children of Mana and Star Fox have a release guarantee... Magical Starsign was not so sure as the first part (Magical Vacation) had not been released outside Japan.

Late? Who cares... No region-coding on DS games = easy US import if games are late in Europe. AND imports are cheaper than domestic products, what with European currencies being so high these days.

So mad at Nintendo of Europe - what kind of a crappy christmas DS lineup is that? The lousy Tenchu game instead of Starfox or Mario Basketball or Mario vs. Donkey Kong... A lot of titles that have been announced for this year have been pushed back. What are they thinking?
