Mature or ImMature: that is the question

4 KoF ladies today. We got the ever cool (and dead ;_;) Mature (FTW) and Vice, as well as 2 recent newcomers to the series, Malin and Momoko. Since they're more recent charas, artworks of them are hard to come by, aside from their official ones of course. Hence, Malin is from the official 2k3 one by Falcoon and Momoko is from a doujin. Yessss....Momoko is 18 year old flat-chested female....^^

Game news:
NEW BLEACH DS 2nd Unveiled in Famitsu!!!! - characters and graphics looks slighty improved but not much as the first game looked really good already. We can see Grand Fisher. I wonder how far they're gonna go w/ the manga and if any Arrancars will be included like the Heat the Soul 3. Though HtS3's Ulquiorra is a special guest obviously for manga fans.

New Famitsu scan of SvC Card Fighters DS from yesterday.
The official SNK site also updated. Nothing to note except for some imode games like Metal Slug Survivor and some goodies added to their 'goods' page like SS box.
Famitsu covers more on their imode games like Days of Memories 2 and MS Survivor.

More DBZ S!N shots, also from yesterday
A new BS D.O.N. CM
More FFIII movie media
Everybody's Tennis scan
More God Hand shots taken from Itmedia - I still don't know who the artist is but it's gotta be SNK's Hiroaki, cuz if it is, it would boggle my mind.
Some Blood+ shots
Some Twilight Princess art
Pokemon DS will be playable online (covers)
A look at the limited edition Deunan fig that comes w/ the Appleseed EX PS2 game
Sega announces another Shining game which T2 hinted about before. Shining Force EXA for the PS2. In related Shining news Shining Wind won't be released until Spring 2k7.
It's been mentioned that Grand Prix Games are working on a Wii game. No details as of what but GPG has worked on the Hajime no Ippo/Victorious Boxer games.
Valkyrie Profile Lenneth site opens (NA)
I just wanted to add this cuz it never caught my attention until now, Matuzimakae Cosplay Sexy Yakyuken. Why? Cuz I didn't know one of my fave JAV actresses was in this, Kaede Matsushima. too bad it's no porno game :P ^^, otherwise gimme a Sora Aoi (my fave) one!!!
With Virtua Fighter 5 coming out in the arcades, my match site source, Go For Broke (linked on the right) put up a demo vid of Vanessa vs. Goh...looking amazing graphically and that AI Vanessa SUCKS! I want to dish out my Vanessa.

Yeah, I've been hyped up these past couple of days with all these new announcements.
Bleach 2 DS should be cool. The first game was awesome and this one should be even better.
The SNK/Capcom Card Fighters game looks cool. Aren't us Europeans getting that before the US/Canada (if it's even been announced there yet)?

D.O.N will be cool but it got a poor Famitsu score...
Same with Bleach 3 PSP. I guess it's one of those "omly fans need apply" things.

FF III move was cool. I seriously cannot wait for that one to drop!

I'm going to Barcelona at the end of the month and there's a sweet ass arcade there which I was addicted to last year w/Outrun 2 and House of the Dead 3 getting most of my money...I seriously hope the have Virtua Tennis 3, Virtua Fighter 5 and/or Tekken 5: DR. Oh and some KoF XI would be cool too!

Oh and what's up with Jikkyou Powerful Pro Yakyuu 13 getting such high Dengeki scores?! It just looks like some crazy RPG/Baseball hybrid judging from the 10,000 other titles in the series. It can't be that good can it?

Well, i'm not sure about the release, for NA and EU. Nothing's been really mentioned about the release date. SNKPUSA announced that they were bring SvC CF DS to NA. While Ignition is the one publishing it in EU. SNKPUSA made a press release right before E3 about releasing it in NA.

Yeah, both D.O.N. and HtS3 are for fans and i wasn't surprised by the score.

Heh, you're lucky to live in close to all the sweet countries.

Yeah, i'm not sure about JPPY13. It's just a long running series and the SD designs from yesteryear never appealed to me. Only those wacky japanese baseball fans or fans of their league need apply.
