On a negative note, I'm kinda bummed that Kid Icarus is selling somewhat slowly compared to Nintendo's big hitters. There's a freaking Namco Wii vacation game on that list with more total sales than it.

Neither conceiving (as the catching end, I should add) nor birthing sounds like a fun topic for dudes. Who the hell is buying this?

There was another one, a few months ago I saw "I Don't have many friends portable" for the PSP. Japan is so silly.

It's basically a monster rancher type game, except your "offspring" are the monsters. A JRPG which you try to have babies with maidens and your offspring go into dungeons where parents aren't permitted to go. Hmmmm.
