Two articles in as many days? Looks like the world of video games is more fecund than I thought.
Picross sounds like a game many would enjoy, but one which I'd find somewhat aggravating (much like Sudoku and similar puzzles). Perhaps the rules become less daunting and more engaging in an interactive environment though- Nintendo did of course make a Mario themed Picross game.
(Personally, I think they should make a Macross Picross.)

What can I say? Gaming is a very, very busy place. Australia unfortunately has a lot of black spots and dead periods, which don't really exist elsewhere.

The whole point is to show that you don't have to wait around, since it really is out there.

From time to time, as full sized columns for particularly special items. [email protected]: Dearly Stars I just happened to get a copy the day it came out. I thought it might be a good idea to beat everyone to the punch.

There's actually a LOT of Picross games out there - off the top of my head, there's a couple of gameboy ones, Mario Picross that was rereleased on the Nintendo Wii, as well as a series which could be picked up via the Super Famicom's flash disc feature (for a fee of course) back in the 90s.

It's a Nintendo thing, but having the game branch out would be fun.

Thanks for reading, and I hope to see you again!

- Just a thought.
