GBA: "Mario Sunshine Advance' to utilise Rare's 'Jet Pac' engine

10 things to do to pass the time until Mario Sunshine arrives:
1. Nervously convince yourself that 'FreeLoader' will work and be out soon, and that you'll be playing an import of Mario on your dusty PAL machine any day now.
2. In the unlikely event of you having a girlfriend, mentally prepare her for the weekend when she will hear nothing but whooping, cheering and catchy jingles permeating through the walls of the house all night long.
3. Repeatedly spout a mantra of "Evolution..... not revolution" in the hope that it will soften any potential disappointment.
4. Try to recall where you put your GameCube.... "Now, was it the loft, shed or charity shop?"
5. Convince yourself that you won't be subjected to any spoilers, and do this whilst browsing the net for fresh information and screenshots.
6. Confirm your membership of the geek elite by grabbing hold of a GameCube controller and trying the imagine how the jet pack buttons will work by having an 'imaginary' go on the game.
7. Go out and spend some money free from guilt, because when you finally get a copy of the game you will have justified to yourself your GameCube purchase...
8. Try to predict the score your favourite magazine/website will give it, and start preparing letters of complaint to send in the event of them not marking it as highly as you would have liked them to.
9. Wanking! Come on, you're a videogamer..... let your already excessive masturbatory habits reach new levels of depravity by utilising the following household items: A balloon whisk, a block of lard and a bag of offal.
10. Have a look through the old editions of the UncleClive.co.uk website, this time actually bothering to read some of the text-rich pieces. You never know, you might actually enjoy one or two of them (the irony being, of course, is that if you've got to point 10 in this list then chances are you already do read my site exhaustively. In which case thank you very much. Here, have a drink on me).

Even your favourite Uncle's cold heart is beating rapidly in anticipation of the plumbers return, those gameless nights will seem even longer until I can bask in the glorious Sunshine. I haven't played a really decent platformer since Mario's last outing.

Other developers take note:
This time around BUILD on what you see in Mario Sunshine, don't knock off a poor imitation which lacks fluid control, innovation and platforms. If I see platform-less levels populated with generic baddies and hundreds of objects to tediously collect I'll be coming down to Guilford (or diagonally to Twycross) to put a parsnip up your collective asses.

My beetroots are being prepared as you read this.


FEATURED LINK OF THE WEEK: Miyamoto Shrine.

Seeing as we have a rather Nintendoesque update this week I thought this site might be appropriate. Everything you ever wanted to know about Shigeru Miyamoto but were too afraid to ask.

Professor: "Videogames dull the brain"
"Many of the participants in the group who played the most video games told researchers that they had trouble associating with friends".

Perhaps that's the reason they started playing videogames in the first place?
