    According to the Kotaku, Garou: Mark of the Wolves is coming out on Japan's Xbox Live Arcade on the 24th.
    There's no mention of a date for other territories.
    :( 
    I suppose I can wait, but if they pull another Fatal Fury Special and release the game with no local multiplayer I swear I am going to Neo Deadly Rave someone's ass over at SNK Playmore.

    There is an exclusive King of Fighter shooter coming also, i mentioned it before but due to all the E3 hype it sort of got washed away.

    I had heard Garou was making its way everywhere by the end of the year, hope its true :)

    Should be worldwide as it has been confirmed for NA too. They very, very rarely stagger Arcade releases unless it's something territory exclusive.

    I hope so.
    If I could come home from seeing Revenge of the Fallen and play Mark of the Wolves again before I go to bed that would be the best day ever!!

    I play this all the time on my PS2. I hope it hits LIVE so I can get my ass handed to me by an actual player.

    Rising Tackle!

    It looks like Wednesday will be the best day ever.
    As much as I think the new KOF looks like it's gonna be awesome, I wish they had kept this design for Terry.

    Garou is pretty much the only SNK fighter i've got time for, but I don't think I can put it in with Mahvel around the corner.

    Unfortunatley I'll be temporarily passing on this. I recently broke out the DC version when a friend came over though, I have that to hold me over. If they announce that 1943 is more than a few weeks off, I'll use my secret stash of Microsoft space Allards for this and some other recent passes.

    I'm actually glad they went back to the old school FF look, i was kinda gettng bored with MotW Terry being in the last few ones.

    As for MotW, if it comes out on PSN i may get it, tired of having to pay for online use on the 360.

    I don't understood how it is that I have never heard anyone complain about paying $15 a month for a game like WoW but I continually hear people say that Xbox Live is "too expensive" or "should be free".
    Xbox Live is $50 a year or $4.17 a month.
    Considering that there always seems to be a deal somewhere to get it for $40 a year or $3.33 a month it makes even less sense.

    Xbox LIve is the premiere, pioneering online service.
    Sony has made great strides with its online offerings recently but they are still playing catch-up to Live.
    Nintendo -well, instead of having online co-op in New Super Mario Bros. they thought it better to pioneer the technology of having the game play through the difficult parts for you.
    Apparently Nintendo thinks we only want our Wiis online to get the weather.

    I used to own all the Street Fighter games at home but still spent $5-$20 a week to play them at the arcades so I could get some human competition.
    Based on that I don't mind paying $3.33 a month to play Mark of the Wolves online.

    Just last night I noticed Microsoft has a deal for a LIve Gold membership for $1 for one month.
