    You use Megaton to much. This is great, but no megaton. Megaton would be Mario heading to the PS3.

    It’ll be megaton if it’s actually any good. The original Kid Icarus…. let’s just say that the fans are very much wallowing in the rose-tint vat.

    “It’ll be megaton if it’s actually any good”

    Thanks for that, Gheritt!

    Graphics look pretty good but not as good as some people were making out. I’d peg them at about PSP-level, yes?

    Do we have Zelda footage on the YouTubes yet?

    It really doesn’t, though. It’s not even Gamecube-level.
