Well, better late than never... right?

 

Glen's LCVG Game of the Week

 

This was a tough call.... but here it is.

 

241877.jpg

Mario vs. Donkey Kong (GBA) - $29.99

 

I got a chance to play this the other day at Target... and had my wife not pulled me away, I could have played it for quite some time.

 

There are more than a few honorable mentions for this week as well.

 

Sonic Advance 3 (GBA)

Metal Slug 3 (Xbox)

River City Ransom EX (GBA)

 

As always there can only be one winner..... but when there are great games, are there really any losers? hehe.

I'm probably going to be hitting Best Buy to pick up Sonic Advance 3 and Mario vs. Donkey Kong for $19.99 each after the Gamer Gift Card is applied to each.

 

Other than that, nothing really lept out at me. $39.99 is a bit much for Metal Slug for me at the moment. I love the series... but I can wait. :)

I'll get you, Glen, I'll get you!!!

 

It's all good Pharmboy, if it makes you feel any better I'll be picking up both games, and I'll be sure to give both equal love and attention. :) But I gotta say, that Mario vs Donkey Kong looks like it is going to be so sweet. Looks like an instant classic,.... we'll see.??

I'll be the first to tell you guys that I have never, repeat never, played River City Ransom. It's hard for me to put a remake in the Game of the Week slot, seeing as how I've never played it.

 

Regarding Metal Slug 3, I haven't heard what the online features are for the game. I kind of tuned out news about it when I decided I wasn't going to pick it up.

I'm an irrational fanboy!

 

Glen is teh bias!!!! :green:

 

I kid, I kid. I'm sure Mario v. Donkey Kong is going to be a sweet little number itself, I just know it'll be high profile enough without our help. River City Ransom is one of those sleepers that has a core fanbase but less mainstream attention than I'd personally like :).

 

But of course it's your subjective pick, Glen, and I just like giving you a little razz over it ;)
