    Tombi remains my favourite game of all time and for a site that writes pages on games that died at retail, tombi is sadly under represented

  • mrsnowywaffle - May 3, 2009 11:03 p.m.

    I'm totally surprised nobody mentioned the pigs in EVERY zelda game that attacked you when you hit them one too many times. BEWARE, MORTALS!

    What about Wizpig? From Diddy Kong Racing?
  • Kattleox - May 2, 2009 4:20 a.m.

    What about Mega Man Legends 2? You can kick pigs to become more evil and also have a pig at one point. You can give it away for food to a lady who was "looking for a pet" even.
