    Cool beans. I’m really looking forward to some LostWinds reviews. And a huge O_O at it being a two player game.

    Oooh, yes. I didn’t notice that. I assume this is one player controlling the little chap and one controlling the wind?

    1500 points? eh?

    Ill be interested in seeing how large all the games are, I have a feeling you might be able to get 2 and thats about it.

    I want LostWinds though, although not if it breaks my Freeloader. Im prepared for that, but not quite yet.

    Yep -need to know sizes. Does the Wii still force you to shift stuff onto the internal memory to play it? Or can you play things off the SD Card now?
