    Holy crap! I was going to make some snide comment about being disappointed it wasn't the Great Giana Sisters.

    Yes, but it doesn't take away from it being a legitimately good game.

    I didn't say it was a bad game. I'm just saying it plays just like SMB only with teen girls instead of hairy Brooklyn plumbers.

    Chris Huelsbeck was the king of 80s home computer game music, see also the first two Turrican games. Somebody needs to start giving the dude work again.

    Going by the fact that their overalls are quite form-fitting, I'm gonna assume Mario & Co. don't have anything down there to begin with. I think a more appropriate comparison would be "SMB if they had boobs instead of beer bellies".

    EDIT: Okay, after seeing the Youtube vid, looks like the Giana sisters are pretty young. So... I got nothin'.

    I remember that group from the In The Groove games.

    For that matter, somebody needs to get the first two Turrican games onto the Virtual Console's C64 library. Those and the Xenon games are pretty much the only C64 games I want on my Wii, AND THEY AREN'T THERE. Grrrr...
