Super Bonk is probably good, right? Never played any of the Bonk games but I hear they're decent platformers (or are they more action-y?).

I bought the original when it was released on the VC. It's a mix of both, but I think it's more platform IIRC.

I thought it was supposed to be bad, but a quick google search tells me the "Bonk compendium" calls it "easily one of the best in the series", so there you go.

I didn't play the original, but got the sequel on VC, and it was pretty good. I'll never play it again, though.

As a kid, I had also bought Bonk's Adventure on the Game Boy with my own money... man, was I disappointed when I beat it an hour later.

Bonk is kind of weird and possibly overrated, but decent.

Is it a sign of the end times that I think that Baseball Management game on DSiWare sounds pretty good?

I've dabbled with a couple PC sports-management sims and they're actually pretty cool if you're in the right mindset.

They have a very cerebral slant on them so they're a welcome break from twitch-gaming.

The baseball doesn't sound to expensive either. You should check it out.
