By the way, as I've said every week for the past several, where is Advance Wars 2!?

In my GBA collection.

Advance Wars 2 is probably the same place Metroid Zero Mission is. On the bottom of their priority list apparently.

@Jargon
Ooo, you had access to the rare blue Kirby? Except for the odd occasion, I pretty much capped out at 3P.

By the way, the shuriken mini-game always made for an amazing opening act.
