    Seen on eBay: Pikmin 1 & 2 set with mini figures and t-shirt. This is just one of the many cool pieces of licensed game merchandise that I've seen coming from Japan, Hong Kong or Korea - to say nothing of the games they get. How many .jp region games actually make it out in the NorAm or European regions? Not enough!

    What do we get in Europe? Metal Gear Solid merchandise (whoopie do) and Dancing Stage Euromixes featuring "Lovecats" by The Cure and "Come On Eileen"! Argh!

    Mind you, I expect for every Pokemon/Sanrio/strange rhythm action controller afficionado in the West, there's a sports simaholic in the East moaning about the shocking lack of snowboarding games available for his region.

    I just need to find that guy so we can swap ;).
