The Wii had a pretty good month this month, with big games like Punch-Out!!, Klonoa, and the almost guaranteed to sell EA Sports Active. The DS was a bit light this month, though Nintendo's Personal Trainer: Walking could be a popular choice among the "expanded audience."

Of the games I want, there's my highly anticipated Punch-Out!! and the beautiful remake Klonoa, which are must buys for me. And later on down the road, maybe when my wallet's not hurting so much, I'll have to check out Boom Blox Bash Party (loved the original) and New Play Control! Donkey Kong Jungle Beat (never played the original).

What about you my dear reader? Are you going to relive some nolstagic Punch-Out!! fun? Or are you saving your money for a month with more worthwhile handheld games?


  1. I already got and beat Klonoa completely, but I also want Jungle Beat, Punch Out, and Boom Blox.

    Probably won't get 'em all though. I have other games I should play first. Jungle Beat is a definite buy though.

  2. For May, I'm all about Punch-Out!! and then Space Invaders Extreme for XBLA.

    Next month, however, I am getting both Wii and 360 versions of Ghostbusters. I'm so hyped for that game, it's stupid.

  3. I'll definitely at least rent punch-out; but I'd want to rent or read reviews before I buy. No guarantee that it will be as good as previous games in the series.
