Awesome...Now if only I can pry my hands away from Kirby (wait, eww) I'll be picking this up next week...

Does Mrs. Kirby know about your tawdry affair?

Wait, I have my spherical heroes mixed up: Kirby's the perpetual bachelor.

I'd very much like to see a review of this game. I've found that bomberman titles are often hit or miss...

Are we even sure that Kirby is male? Wouldn't it be funny if it turned out that Kirby was a girl all the time? I mean, seriously, how many men suck and blow...

You know, if you don't buy Bomberman and save up another twenty bucks you can get Battlefield 2 instead...

I think Kirby is referred to as a "he" in the instruction manuals. Also, Kirby is named after a male developer and was a placeholder until they could design the real character but they wound up keeping him instead.

Though I'll be the first to admit that Kirby is about as androgynous as they come...

Also, unless Battlefield 2 has a mac client out there somewhere, it ain't gonna happen.

Review's coming around midnight.

Smash_brother: Japanese has no personal pronouns so the translation added the gender there. I think Samus was referred to as a he in the first Metroid's manual.

30th for Europe/Oztralia. Rock. I can't wait, this is going to be awesome-o-tastic, especially in multiplayer. 100 single player stages, HOLY CRAP.
