Where is Our Saturn Bomberman 2?

Yeah yeah. I know the Saturn is long gone, but why can't Hudson release a sequel to this masterpiece? Bomberman on the Dreamcast and Gamecube were ok, but they just weren't as good as the Saturn version. Why can't we get a new Bomberman game with the Hudson characters (instead of nothing but different colored Bombermen), the dinosaurs (Tyras), 8-player mode (10 for widescreen), and all the original Saturn level plus additional ones?

If Hudson did all of this and included online play, for 8 players, not the standard 4 they have been doing, this would be a killer game.

Think about this...the PS3 has 7 wireless connections. Perfect for Saturn Bomberman. The Wii has 4 Wii remotes and 4 Gamecube ports. Also perfect for Bomberman.

Add all of this together with online leagues and tournaments and you have one of the best games out there. Let's hope someone is already thinking about this.

New Wii Revelation Coming Soon?

According to GoNintendo.com, Reggie Fils-Aime (President of Nintendo America) has said there is yet another secret to be revealed around launch time. Now what in the world could this be?

New hardware specs? Doubtful at this late date.

Additional pack-in? Possible, since this wouldn't effect anyone to this point.

Lower price? Possible, since Nintendo did the exact same thing with the N64.

Only 19 more days until we know for sure.

No Wii Price in Toys R Us Big Toy Book?

Anyone else find it odd that every console and handheld system in the TRU Big Toy Book had a price next to it, except for the Wii? Even the PS3 had prices for both of it's versions listed. My first thought was back to the N64 launch. Nintendo originally stated it would sell for $250 but then at the last minute swithed the price to $199 even though they had pre-sales for several thousand already in the books.

It might be wishful thinking, but I would love to see Nintendo pull the same switch-a-roo.
