World of Goo - I got it now. It is absolutely amazing. Everybody who has 1 cent to spare should get this better now than later.

Metroid Prime Trilogy - I just beat Meta Ridley with only 5 HP left from my starting 1299. Luckily I made it past the totally-easy-but-able-to-deal-5-damage enemies to the save point afterwards.

I got the totally garbage ending though.
I will play MP1 again on the Hyper Mode when I'm finished with the others, and try to get 100% anyway. Now I started MP2 and it's looking great so far.

HOLY SHIT!

It has just come to my attention that Cave Story has three different endings. And there I was thinking all this time, "what a bleak, horrible ending". Spoiler:
...The island blows up, everyone dies, and than the credits with the casualty list...

Sesame Street! It's 40 years old!
(Best kid's show ever, involving muppets and teaching children valuable lessons about life, the alphabet, counting... I'm still a huge fan of the older episodes!)

You don't know Sesame Street??
Don't tell me it doesn't exist in Israel, because it does.

meh, Sesame Street was held up purely by Bert and Earnie and maybe The Count.
The rest were hacks

Best kids show ever was Roger and the Rottentrolls.
Not very educational, but as funny as the Simpson's or Futurama.

Yeah I didn't like Sesame Street that much either, but you at least have to know it.

It was one of the ONLY kids tv shows in Israel. Actually AFAIK there were only two kids tv shows in Israel when I was little (TV just started out here, one lousy channel), "Sesame Street" and "Nice Butterfly". Oh and another one named "No Secrets" or something. So yeah I remember it. Actually, thinking about it this might be why it appeared only on google.co.il.

Kameo: Elements of Power

Anyone had a go at this game? Click for a trailer (it's a bit of a weird one).

One of very few action-adventure games still around at the moment, despite it being pretty old now. It's quite Zelda-ish in the way the game is presented; there's a large field in the middle which you can ride your horse around in order to get to the different areas of the world which each have a different world element surrounding it (water, fire, etc) and a temple with a boss chamber at the end of it. You play as Kameo, an elf who has the power to morph into other "elemental warriors", which you unlock as you play through.

Sadly I think it's an xbox exclusive, but for those of you who do have one it's definitely worth playing.

Never try it.

The games I'm currently playing are Uncharted 2 Among Thieves (which already finish) and Colin McRae Dirt 2.

Kitarii - Yeah, was originally a Gamecube game that got delayed and delayed till Microsoft bought out Rare, so it is exclusive to the Xbox.
I haven't played it myself, but its regarded as one of Rares last great games before they slid into mediocrity.

I've been playing:
Super Mario Galaxy - I'm replaying it for the first time and damn, some of those Purple coin levels are still quite hard, but none of them as frustrating as the Sling Pod galaxy, which again took me about 25 tries.

Advance Wars DS - Still fabulous and 30 hours in, I don't see this game being finished for me in the near future at all. Insane amount of replay value!

Mega Man ZX Advent - #Q*'!"*§$/()= After 1 year I still haven't beaten it. "5 to 10 hours" the reviews said, ha, I'm well over 25. I've started the game from the beginning just to practice more for the final boss, who totally destroyed me the one time I got to him, and since I haven't even made it that far again. I love the game, but man, I hate it too. That's probably what the developers intend to do with those hard games anyway.

As for MarioGalaxy, oddly when I replayed it I found some stuff far easier and others far harder then before.

Not to mention that Advance Wars is the best game on the road as you can save virtually every minute while playing.

Since right now I'm getting odd crashes on my DS. The game stops in the middle of nothing special (or just being left alone) and reports that the card has been removed (obviously it is still in). I have no idea where the problem is, whether it is the DS or the game.

arg, thats really annoying.
I do know one odd problem with Advanced Wars, but its unlikely to apply to you.
(if you got a flash cards in the gba slot, and close the lid it makes a clicking sound....effectively going on/off standby rapidly.)

Nah, I was talking about Mega Man.
It crashed me three times in about 15 minutes, but then it worked again, weird.
I hope it's fixed now. The best thing to happen is for the game to die me right when I'm up to the final boss.
