Super Smash Bros. Brawl is now a truly global phenomenon

Now that the greatest fighting game in history, "Super Smash Bros. Brawl", is available on the Wii all over the world (it was released in Australasia on June 26th and in Europe yesterday, just in case you missed it somehow), and now that the Wii is at last easy to get hold of all over the world, all is well in the Nintendo gaming universe. Happy days indeed!

If you can't play "Brawl" yet for whatever reason, don't worry too much - here is a truly excellent Flash online version (featuring Sonic and his gang in addition to the usual Nintendo suspects, and also with unlockable extra characters and levels) that you can play for free until such time as you can get hold of the real thing:

Nothing to report at the moment... least, not anything that is of great importance or interest on the Mario and Sonic side of life anyway. However, that doesn't mean I haven't been busily blogging away, because I have - take a look at my personal blog to see what's been interesting me in other areas of life lately (such as Prince Caspian, WALL-E, Disney games, retro games and Dan Dare)...

England, Thailand and Other Things

Actually, there is one small Mario and Sonic thing coming up in a few days time that is of some minor interest....... the Australasian release (June 26th) and European release (June 27th) of Super Smash Bros. Brawl, at long long long long last!! What a ridiculously long wait - it's been almost 4 months since the US release - it has been for those of you living in those parts of the world! Still, in the case of this absolutely awesome game, it really is a case of "better late than never", trust me on that!

Danny Dare

When I started this blog at the beginning of this year I was using the nom de plume Danny Dare, just for the fun of it since I am a huge fan of Dan Dare. However, for some reason a lot of people seem to think that is my real name, so I have now changed my Blogger profile to display my real name of Peter Inns, in the hope of avoiding any future confusion. My posting name will still be Danny Dare though. I hope that clears that up! :-)

I don't think I will ever get bored of any of them. Next I will be getting back into "Super Smash Bros. Brawl". Gaming life doesn't get any better than this!!

To help you join in the fun, in case you're feeling left out having read the above, here's a brilliant collection of 150+ completely free Mario and Sonic online games for you play to your heart's content: - Page 1 - Page 2

Sega confirm release date for "Sonic Unleashed"

Sega have today confirmed that their new "Sonic Unleashed" game will be released on the Nintendo Wii, Microsoft Xbox-360 and Sony PS2 and PS3 in November this year. Hoorah! I hope this will be the game that finally, at long last, lifts Sonic back up to his former glory and puts him level with Mario once more. Mario's been streets ahead in terms of the comparitive quality of each character's new games ever since the mid 90s, which is far, far, far too long!
