Ex-boss, VC and Osu! Takake! Oendan!

Recently, my ex-supervisor (of about 5 years ago) has been assigned to me as my assistant. This is, to say the least, a little odd. I have to assign any lessor, or more menial tasks to her to deal with rather than me deal with them myself, and I tend to feel rather guilty asking her to do this. As I said, the situation is, well a little odd.

After a few boring weeks on the virtual console of late, today we have one of the greatest games of all time to download, none other than Street Fighter 2. Yes, that’s right, the best and only fighting game that you ever need to own.

I would download it myself, except for the fact that I already own it on my SNES.

Talking of great games, I just got a copy of Oendan through the post today. For those not in the know, this is the Japanese game released by Inis prior to Elite Beat Agents. It’s basically the same game mechanics, but with J-pop songs, even more bizarre stories, male cheerleaders and maybe a little less polish than Elite Beat Agents. The most fun is trying to figure out what the hell is going on (it’s in Japanese)… Tell me again why a race horse is trying to capture a burgler?????

I’ve only had a quick game so far, but it seems every bit as addictive as Elite Beat Agents, which is a good, good thing. I happened to beat Elite Beat Agents on the normal difficulty setting the other day, and I’m now playing through it on hard mode. I’d love to be able to get past this and unlock very hard and with it, the Elite Beat Divas.

You obviously need to practice the 'Big Cheese' form a bit more :)

I know exactly where the remainder of my Wii points are going to go then - can't get better than SF2. Shame it's not the Turbo edition though. Contra III I remember being good too.

I'd love to borrow EBA when you're finished with it, it seemed really fun but impossible to play when there are several other people in the room leaping about playing Wii tennis :)
