This made my day:
The nostlagic fool that I am is so pleased with this I want to walk down the street naked, with feathers in my hair, and scream.
(I suggest we replace the gross phrase 'wet/cream my pants' with this new trope.)
What on earth made them unearth this so cute, though, useless, ageless piece of plastic? That is a great move to appeal to the 30-y-old clientelen, anyway. Now we can wonder if it augurs a reissue of the robot, or the release of a "Super Robot ROB" game. Way to go Nintendo, give me more surprises like this.
(Come to think of it, maybe the first idea for the Revolution was actually based on an upgraded version of ROB -shudders-)

So you are hating and nitpicking on one word wild? Nitpicking on a choice of my wording... on a gaming forum??? "Your whacked sideshow freak!" "Have you seen any sailors?" "All your base belong to us!" WHAT?
Did you start gaming with 2600 like I did? Pacman, Ms. Pacman, Donkey Kong, Mario, without their contributions to the video game world from arcades to consoles we would not be here talking today, and now they are all in one game. Wild, maybe not. But I do think it's sort of a big deal, have all of these crossovers desensitized us to things like this?
I never said Pacman was wild. The intent was "If you think that's wild as in R.O.B. being on Mariokart DS check out Pacman characters on the Mariokart Arcade game." Your making mountains out of thin air....
Yeash, done with this thread, and I'm out.
Ryu and Chun-Li forever!

Am I the only one to have read at least Pacman would be in it not long after Nintendô said Namco was making the game ?
I mean, Namco. Namco goddamnit.
Actually, I was kind of hoping they'd put Heihachi Mishima, Jin Kazama (Mishima?), Jun Kazama, Marshall Law and Forrest Law in there, then we could see who would win if the truly most inspired videogame characters battled it out in go-karts. And also Klonoa, too! And rename the game "Namco cross Super Mario: The Go Kart," missing a hyphen and everything.
. . .
In closing, Pac-Man is fucking flaky. He's a fucking nobody. He's a circle with a slit that looks kind of like a mouth, given spherical form, arms, and legs. He's a bitch. I hope Namco fucking burns in hell for continuing to assume we give a shit.
