Boy, Blob Dodge Bullet

A Boy and His Blob DS You've seen the art style behind the recently released A Boy and His Blob for Nintendo's Wii, right?  It's absolutely adorable and fits the tone of the characters and adventure perfectly.  However, it doesn't represent publisher Majesco's first try at reviving the old franchise.  Back in 2005 there were plans for a Nintendo DS relaunch of A Boy and His Blob, albeit one that featured, well, the characters seen here.  Both Boy and Blob are depicted as streetwise smartasses who don't take nothin' from nobody.  Sacrilege!  I think that everyone involved — developer, publisher, audience, and even the fictional characters themselves — dodged a bullet when this version of the game was put out of its misery.
