"
(2) Now repeat the process as many times as is necessary to deliver the news to each and every person in the room individually!

Nurikabe by Nikoli
In this super popular puzzle, black spaces and white spaces slowly come together to show their true form. "Nurikabe" is a puzzle in which you refer to the arranged numbers to fill in all of the spaces. It's popular with a wide range of players, from beginners to experts. It feels great watching the black spaces stretch out like a soft-bodied animal. To ensure your long-term enjoyment, we're prepared both a "Stage Clear" mode and a "Random" mode. In "Stage Clear" mode, you progress by clearing puzzles one by one, and in "Random" mode puzzles are generated at random. Please enjoy this high-quality "Nurikabe" game.

The Last Blade 2
The Last Blade 2, originally released in 1998, is the sequel to the fighting game, The Last Blade, which was released a year before. It picks up where the previous title left off and takes the story of battling at the gates of hell to its climax. This time around, there are 16 unique swordsmen from which to choose. Choose from 2 sword types (Strength and Attack). Deflect your enemy's attacks with "Repel". You can also cancel game-changing special moves like "Super Secret Slice" or "Hidden Secret Slice" with a "Sublime Slash", which connects to Super Secret Slice - just like in the previous title. And there are even some new features like aerial repels, aerial guards and knockdown recovery. Take your battles to a whole 'nother level! (For Nintendo Wii)
