May 7th 2010 3:08AM I'm guessing the [Unused] on capitol cities is because they're going to be a seperate entity from their surrounding zone now - since people will actually be in those cities again, Blizzard is taking steps to avoid a repeat of Crystalsong Forest, i.e. the town rendering the connected countryside useless. The towns not listed probably just aren't done yet, or may already be set up that way.

Jan 11th 2008 2:26AM I love the chair-mounted feedback system. That and the Jawbone, but that's only because I want the one in the bag ^_^
Nov 3rd 2007 9:23AM Mine just happened a week ago, with a PuG in BFD...
"GTG, my dad just knocked down his carport with a tractor."
Luckily, things weren't as bad as my mother screaming into the phone made it sound - it had only made the carport roof list a few feet, and we jacked it back up and repair the post he busted while trying to spread gravel for his driveway.
Didn't even get to explain myself that night - I bare ly got back home and logged back on when he hit the damn thing AGAIN. I left the second time with the blasted tractor keys in my pocket. >_
Jul 11th 2007 4:27PM I see Mach Rider and Air "Zonk" - looks like one of the latest VC release lists.

Bingo. The last and only game I preordered, Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker, of because of the Ocarina of Time: Master Quest that it got me. Bring out more stuff like it and the Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin box o' swag, and I'll start preordering.
That's the trick of this BS: Upselling & cross-selling only work if the consumer sheep think it's worth it. For example, I was a register monkey for at a truck stop. The pull of upselling there was "saving" money, using 2 for $(2*x), 1 for x+y formula. Gamestop's trying to use fear (game will stop working, we won't get enough in, etc) to motivate consumers - from what I've seen, greed (cheaper prices, swag) is much more effective.

Princess Daisy is the oe you're thinking of from Super Mario Land - she was a one-shot until Mario Golf 64 came out.
As for Toadstool, she was always referred to as Princess Peach in Japan - her name was initially changed in the US to Princess Toadstool in the US to help associte her with the Mushroom Kingdom, but her full name was revealed as Princess Peach Toadstool in Super Mario 64. Since then, Peach has been used in both the US and Japan.
