Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

I pre-ordered Diamond today. Apparently a lot of people are getting it. I'm not too crazy about the bonus edition stylus they're going to give me but I guess it will come in handy being that my new DS lite didn't come with a spare.

Finally pre-ordered it today as well.  As much as I like to complain about the game, I know I'll still have a hell of a lot of fun playing it, even if it is essentially the same thing I've played through three times previously.

And as crappy as some of the new names are, I have to say, there are a few I really like.  Staraptor and Magmortar are pretty cool, and the final evolution of the Penguin starter is Empoleon.  Perhaps the best name for anything, ever.



All bow before the mighty Empoleon!

Empoleon?

If someone had come up with that earlier, we'd all be french by now. That's how good it is.
Not a winner anymore.

I'm naming my starter penguin Linux, for obvious reasons. ;)

Mine will be called "SSJ4 Pingu". That is of course when it finally gets released in the UK two years from now.

Thankfully due to the DS's lack of region encoding you can enjoy the American version when it comes out  :P

Nope. Nintendo have blockaded imports from any region.

You horrid little man, you did NOT just go there. Dropping EP1 bombs? For shame, Krakow. For shame.

They don't like stores doing it, but there's really nothing they can do about websites, especially if you're buying from a foriegn website.
www.videogamesplus.ca would be the one I recommend.  I'm in the UK and recently pre-ordered from there, probably won't get it until a week or so the release date, but that's still well before we'll see it released in this country and it's cheaper too.

Just watch out for your GBA games, if you have PAL GBA games and NTSC Diamond/Pearl they won't work together.  Luckily, I imported all my GBA games too.  ;)
