Nintendo DS for me!!!
My grubby hands finally found there way to one. :D Luckily my friend's work just got some into today. Went to the EVIL Walmart the other day and they had been completely raped of them last month and had no idea when to expect more.
I didn't buy it for the current DS games though, I bought it for a better play experience with the GBA game "Zelda the Minish Cap" (Will be available on the 10th) when I'm away from the GameBoy player on my GameCube. :)
It's charging. :)
I'm undecided about getting a DS. I've already invested alot of money in games for my evil Pocket PC (I'm addicted to Zuma right now)
It's well worth it if you like GBA type games. I'm addicted to Zelda. The controls are really comfortable, much nicer then the SP or old GBA for me and the screen looks great.
Only 2 more days. :)
I'm undecided about the DS. I'm hoping someone I know will get one so I can spend some time playing it. I have a GBA, but I don't play it that often. Mostly for long trips, which are not that frequent for me. None of the games really interest me yet, but if a really great one comes out that does something very cool with the second screen, I might be swayed. Frankly, a nice port of the old 2-screen Game and Watch games would probably get me for nostalgia reasons.
Right now I'll wait and see. I do 99% of my gaming at home, and I'm currently assembling a new gaming PC, so that should keep me busy and financially tied up for a while. :)
I just bought an SP a few months ago, but the DS is a nice piece.
"Minish Cap" is well spoken of on the forums I see it mentioned.
My current obsession is Mario Golf Advance Tour for GBA/SP, wow.
I personally wouldn't buy a DS if I had a SP right now, nor would I would I buy one for it's current selection of games. But since I didn't own a SP, this thing was a great choice over the SP for my GBA games. My friend mentioned that Nintend will release a bulk of the DS titles when the PSP is finally released here in the US.
The screen alone was well worth it. I'm playing "The Link to the Past" on it and it's soo nice to play on such an even and vibrant screen. It's extended battery life is also more like the SP; about 10 hours for GBA games. The only draw back is that I can't use it to link to my GC, but it isn't a Gameboy and it would require a seperate wi-fi adapter which the next gen Nintendo system will have built in.
I love the New Nintendo DS system even though I have a SP as well. The colours are better on the DS where the SP looks washed out. The music too, OMG its just much louder. I love it ^_^. Sure the DS don't have too much games right now, but Metroid Prime Hunters keep me entertained plust all the GBA games I have. Love the strategy games like Advance Wars, Final Fantasy Tactics and much more games that take up my time :). Just weird how the simple games take up more of my time than the 128 bit gamin machines and computer. I guess I just love portable gaming hehe.
Same here, simple games like Zelda consume way more of my time then most of the newer stuff. There's just too much fluff out there. :)
I have an old GBA with Afterburner, so it's screen quality and battery life are quite poor. If the DS wouldn't of played GBA games, then I would've purchased a SP earlier this year. I'm really happy with it's overall quality and feel. It's much easier for me to hold and play then my old GBA.
I'm still waiting for The Minish Cap. My friend said they should be in tomorrow. :) And since I preordered it I'm gettin a Metroid Prime Hunter T-Shirt. :) MP on the GameCube is one of my favorite games, just bought the new one, but haven't got around to playing single player yet. Definately buying MP Hunter for the DS. :)
Arr. The Minish Cap be a good game. They grabbed traits from Wind Waker and implemented them into this game. I just started playing, but it's definately the best tile based Zelda. :) I need to finish Link to the Past before I go any further though.
I don't really have the time to play games, so these types of games are great since they're simple adventures that aren't demanding on time.
I MIGHT consider a DS when the prices drop on 'em I just don't know.
I like the sound and screen quality, although I don't like how it doesn't play older GB games. That one thing is a bit of a speed bump for me, as I have a few older GB carts still.
Besides, I just got my SP how I like it! ;)
It also doesn't work with GBA link games. So that's another consideration.
When I first heard about the DS, they mentioned it wouldn't even play GBA games, so I was set on buying a SP. But then they annouced it would, so since I have a GBA player on my GameCube I decided to hold off for the DS.
Definately hold off on one since you have a SP. When the PSP hits the US, Nintendo will be releasing quite a few games for the DS, so I'm wondering if Nintendo will also drop it's price. If anything maybe there will be a must have DS game. :)
I'm really happy with it and have a few friends that are going to buy one for the wi-fi thing. I'm almost finished with The Link to the Past, then it's off to The Minnish Cap, which so far is very impressive. I'm still very impressed with the screen. :)
That leather case is nice. I want one like it for my DS. If I get a SP, it will either be that one, or a red one. :)
Get one of the Special Editions if you can.
If not the NES, then the Fire Red. There are all kinds of customization kits out too.
Tis the two styles I like. If i could change the color on my DS, I would. I'm not a fan of it's color. It was another reason why I held off on the SP. I had a chance to buy the platinum GC also, but I went with black. :)
I'm off to figh Ganon monkey or whatever his name is. I have max bombs, arrows and hearts, so all is good. :) Only one more item to get an it's in his dungeon. Walkthroughs are great. I use them often so I can keep the game moving.
Some wifi hackers have just about cracked the way the DS does wireless, so you'll be able to play across the internet in the near future.
Cool, kind of like the WarpPipe for the GC. I heard Nintendo was doing an official one also. :)
Check out mmy new Zelda cardboard thingy, it's like 5 feet tall. :D
Good ol' PDA panache is at it again, with what looks like a really nice upgrade stylus for the Nintendo DS.
I've owned several different upgrade styli from PDA Panache and they all outlived the PDA's they were bought for.
Great stuff, very high quality.
Nice. :) That's half the price of a game. :D
Slashdot has a post about Nintendo licening the PALM OS. So I guess the DS will be another PALM. The first thing my wife asked me, is that another PDA and I said no. I'll just need to wait to see what pans out.
I just bought Final Fantasy Dawn Of Souls. I think you would like it, jack. FF1 is pretty engaging (FF2 is nothing to write home about with the bizzare level-up system).
Wow. That actually makes the DS a little bit more appealing. They do make really nice stylii. I've been without one ever since Sony moved to the collapsible stylus and PDA Panache decided not to make one. :(
I never played FF1 or 2, but did watch my friend play FF3 all the way through when I worked in tech support many moons ago. I'll put it on my list for games to play.
I'm really digging the Minish Cap. The game is very well done and has actually stumped me a few times now, none of the other Zelda games have done this to me. :) It's worth playing after the FF series.
One of my friends just picked up a DS this week. He wasn't going to do it until later since he has a SP, but after seeing the screen and feeling that the controls were easier to hold then the SP, he made the jump.
You could always buy a DS, that stylus and the PALM OS cart Nintendo will mostly likely release this year. ;)
Oh, in case you didnt see recently, the DS is now going online just like the PSP.
The first game to use the online functions will be "Animal Crossing DS" and there was a delay in Metroid Prime : Hunters - which a lot of people think was for Internet play.
SWEEETTTTTTT!!! DS is going to be THE system for FPS's IMO- i dont usually like FPS's but, the way you controll in MP:FH is insane! i love it!
The PSP doesnt have two analogs so im pretty sure that it will be hard to do FPS's on, but ill wait for Coded Arms to see.
How crazy does the "keyboard" of the SP look?
I have nothing against flashy green handhelds with bkack keys and an antenna, but a foil covered keyboard-and the image...
Did you glue that on there yourself or was it on?
A SP keybaord?
Have you played Animal Crossing on the DS? I watched my friend play it on the GC and thought about getting it.
I agree on the FPS thing, I really hope that it takes hold on the DS. FPS games to me are only fun with multiplayer and from just playing my friend once with Metroid, it was a blast on the DS. I definately want that game when it's released.
But give me more RPGEEEEES!!! :) The DS is soooo perfect for these games.
Unfortunatly, i have not played the DS version, as it isnt out yet... Later this year as i understand it. But, since the DS's lineup was rushed, ill wait for a quality online game.
Yes, RPG's and FPS's would RULE.
Even a RTS would probably work well... Think about it, if the N64 could play StarCraft:BroodWar, whats stopping the DS from tons of great RTS's?
I can easily forsee a PC MMORPG port for the DS with the addition of online to what it can do... But we will have to wait and see!
Yeah, the games do seem rushed. If not for the GBA's The Minish Cap, I wouldn't of bought a DS at this time. I'm thinking about buying another game now, but a bit hesitant to see what becomse available during the PSP release.
I just bought Ridge Racer. It's no GT, but for an arcade racer is just as much fun as I remembered it on the PS1. It just looks allot better and the steering with the stylus is starting to grow on me. It was hard at first, but now that I'm more used to it, I'm finding it very easy and natural to work with. Recovering from spin outs is much easier then doing so with a thumb.
I bought Urban Asphault GT, and i wasnt that happy with some of the games physics, its hard to steer, ect, but the licensed cars are really sweet to race (My Ford GT kicks major @ss!)
Saving for the Gallardo.
I've only seen the demo on that game, wasn't sure about it.
Ridge Racer is the same as it's alwasy been for controls, so if you've played it on other sytems, the only thing new is the screen steering.
I would like to make a little tiny steering wheel that sits on my DS screen and is spring loaded. It would move a little nib right or left and snap back to the middle if I let go. Not sure how I would do this, but I thought it would be cool for RR.
I find myself going cross eyed while playing RR, is this normal? :)
Has anyone tried Tiger Woods golf yet on the DS?
The touch screen controls look great, instead of the normal press, press, press action.
Madden 2005 also looks awesome;
Oh and they're porting the original N64 Golden Eye, which IMHO is absolutely the best one period. All the others, no matter which console sucked. :) Oooooh please use the screen for aiming like Metroid. :)
Whoa, holy crap...
I cant wait now!
I havent tried woods/madden as i dont typically like sports games, but maybe ill invest in one ;)
Same here, I haven't purchased a sports game since Arnold Palmer Golf on the Genisis. But I did love Cyber Ball and the touch controls really make Madden look intresting to me.
I'm realy diggin Ridge Racer. Just started to master the power slide. :)
I read that Golden Eye will suport up to 16 peeps over wi-fi. I hope that's not a rumor :) It was the only one I finished. I tried all the others with great expectations, but they were so poorly made, I couldn't even stand to play them for a long period of time. Rare really knows their stuff I guess.
That Madden comment I just wrote sounds sick. :eek:
