    Lol, that's pretty mad. Of corse, my super powers helped me see the bear... just born super.

    Yeah, well my pc is screwed. So I'm forced to use my mums mac (which is actually better...), but I can't go on msn!

    Lol...A friend of my bros got ripped off with his Brawl and Freeloader, he ended up paying almost $150, or a bit more I think...LOL!

    *Sigh*...Computers are a hassle...

    Should I just go for Australia Post? I save $2 and it only takes 2-4 days and I don't have to sign for it...

    Well i guess most of the stores think its too much of a risk as people are not comfortable with the new and "different" method of the freeloader. They would rather wait until the game is released out here

    any body pick up no more heroes today? its a great game and the unique graphics are impressive for the most part. The free-roaming aspect isn't that great though, i was pushing a NPC onto the road just by running into her :lol:
    All in all though, its pretty good

    Is that so? I had quite an interest in this game, i thought it might have a similar to killer7 control scheme.

    the controls are a lot different than expected. You hold the remote up or down to hold your katana above below your waist, then press A to swing it, although i do find myself swinging the remote around a lot anyway. It's different, considering other games on the wii, but it works well.

    ****! I just realised that play-asia had it for a hell of alot cheaper! The freeloader that is!

    I sent them an e-mail seeing if I would be able to cancel it and get the money back into my DD Account...I HOPE SO!!!

    I doubt it...

    What is the chance of Nintendo blocking the Freeloader?

    Would it be considered the biggest mistake in the company's history?


    (However, I can see the legal ramifications of it, I noticed the NTSC boxes say not for sale outside of the USA...not sure why, but perhaps it gets companies into trouble if they do it)...

    Or to protect those from buying the wrong format, most 'casual' gamers wouldnt even know the difference between PAL and NTSC

    That's a very good point Apollo...

    Also, has anyone seen the new GH for DS I think it's called 'On Tour' it's got ads for it and all...

    And I really really hope they can give me my money back.

    And if they do block it, then they're assholes, because they're still getting revenue no matter what happens. Only people who may be pissed is Nintendo of Australia, but those ****ers shoot up prices so damn much, it's their fault too.

    Yeah you are right, its always a monopoly here. Nintendo must be getting desperate.

    It seems ok, but i doubt it will be on par with the console games. Still worth looking into though
