Got my Lite tonight. Nice improvement, but I still wish it was black.

Now do we get to count Mario Kart DS as a new game again because, technically, the DS Lite is a new system!  :wink:


Huh? I thought you were giving up on DS and ehre you are with a Lite?  I was gonna ask for your friend code then didn't but am asking again now. PM me!

I've only played through the first world so far and all I have is this game is flipping sweet! All you guys who said the graphics suck are smoking dope and dellusional IMO, this looks better than most of the PSP games I've seen. Just got my DS Lite today, PERFECT game to start the DS off with. I'm loving the level design is well, it feels so classic. And huge Mario? Awesome.


Ding. You are exactly where I am and said exactly what I'm thinking

Honestly I hate this game.  It's hands-down the worst Nintendo-developed game I've ever played.  It all smacks of a shitty moneygrab, has no innovation, interesting mechanics, or QUALITY.

Nintendo should be ashamed for sullying the Mario name with this ripe turd.


Why do you even bother playing anything?

I made an offer to this Andrew guy twice and he never responded.  I guess this is just more fallout.  Personally, I'm just going to put some distance between GT and CG and call it good.


Andrew's not 'Andy' is he?  Cause that would be  debacle.

I'm assuming Rich LaPorte sold the domain.  Kinda stinks.

I could say a bunch of things right now about Rich and what happened to the domain (now and in the past), but I'll play nice and refrain from doing so.

Yeah.  I hear ya.

By the way Destructor did you know that your WWW link goes to www.consolegold.com?   Tongue

If you hold the acceleration button at a certain time right before the race begins, you'll get a starting speed boost. That might be why you've noticed opponents accelerating past you right at the start of the race.


I've been able to figure that out...thanks! Any others.

No matter what I do I always lose.

People with the same exact character seem to jet away from me with ease and I can't figure out why.

They are power sliding a lot, but it seems just to be bouncing, not getting their tires on fire for the speed burst....or is that what they're doing? Sliding at random spots to get the speed burst?

Any other tips?

I suck.

Thats' bogus. I've a little experience with a guitar and by little i mean the opposite of Warning's Colossus Hands experience. It's far far FARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR more complex.

If you put 20 hrs into GH you're pretty good. You put 20 hrs into a real guitar you might be strumming chords.

You started a countdown thread for it for gawd sakes.


Touche!

That said, I enjoy the device very much, but hmm.  Maybe it's the external circumstances of life that have changed rather than my reaction to Lite itself. Oh and did I mention that I haven't had good sleep in nearly a week.

However, it's wonderous to be playing SMB again and only now do I remember how bad I am at those games smile. Meteos is fun, if a bit confusing and I still have 2 more games to take a look at.

Overall I'd give the Lite 8 Marios after a preliminary 2 hrs.  I've not made use of wifi nor do I really understand how to use the device at this point.

I opened up the 2nd unit. No dead pixels. I shall be returning the other one tomorrow.

So far I'm enjoying it, but I'm not BLOWN away.  I don't know that I expected it to be and the DS Lite will be a nice compliment to my usual gaming habits. Can't wait for my next business trip to carry it along with me.  W00t!

no, the Eb I go to, the guy I usually go to talk to is pretty cool.  I been going to the same store for years now.

They didnt have more than 20 in the store.

I started mine up in the car, to make sure everything was Kosher, it looked Ok, but now that I am home.  I will double check for dead pixels.  Wow that would suck.


So does that mean it's defective or is there a wear in time?
14179  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Countdown to DS Lite: DEAD PIXEL? AUGH! PG 3 on: June 11, 2006, 03:02:11 PM
Charged up. System set up done.  Load up NSMB and what do I see?

A dead pixel on the touch screen.  It's light green.

What do I do?  Will it clear up or is this one defective?

GAAH!
14180  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Countdown to DS Lite: DEAD PIXEL? AUGH! PG 3 on: June 11, 2006, 12:47:35 PM
W00t!

I am now the proud owner of 2 DS Lites.  The one I plan to keep is charging right now.  I purchased the 2nd just in case of:

* Other gamer need (shipped at cost + shipping) if there's a shortage
* Potential profiteering (depending how bad a shortage there is)
* Return to the store if neither of the above occurs.

Can't wait till it charges.

There were about 20 people there and all proceeded politely and orderly.  Someone said that they'd called target and they had 40 in stock so I felt comfortable buying 2.  Others did the same.

Met a very nice lady there with her 10 year old. The 10 year old was way past excited.

There was also a 16/17 year old who was volunteering information about the system, its capabilities and how EB was already oversold. Nice kid, so I let him geek out and decided not to grab any of the spotlight  Cool

Sweet!

It has some neat story elements, but it wasn't the be all and end all that everyone made it out to be.

It was a good game, but not "!!!!GREAT!!!!"

New Control Scheme. New Era. New mechanics. New characters. New New Camera. New Aiming System. New blah bla blah. Too much new.  

It feels like work right now (though seeing a young Ocelot was cool), so I'm putting MGS3 back on the shelf for now.

I've replayed the entry to Dr. Sokolov so many times now that I'm too impatient to stealth my way any further.  

Maybe in a month or two.

On to God of War.

I believe it's all or nothing..cause once you kill one person you don't get the "extras" at the end.  


Generally speaking, what are these extras?  Is it worth slogging through not killing anyone to get them?

The green frogs are an easter egg sort of thing - there is one in each section (?) of the game.


As in one per screen?  That's a lot of extra time for a camo suit. Is it like a super camo suit? Is it worth the effort?
14192  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Countdown to DS Lite: DEAD PIXEL? AUGH! PG 3 on: June 08, 2006, 11:59:20 AM
3 more days.  Is it coincidental that this has been a slow week?  As my GT bretheren seem not to be as stoked as I am about the release of the DS Lite, the week is taking even longer.  

Random T-Minus 3 Day countdown questions:

1. It's fun to say 'Koopa Troopa' over an over <giggle>
2. Wouldn't Nintendo's Pro Wrestling be a great updated wrestling game for the DS?  I think so. Bring back all the classic characters. I think it's time for a new generation to behold the bad assness of King Slender, the subtle bad guyness of Kin Corn Karn and the absolute uselessness of Fighter Hayabusa.
3. I'm hankering to find my brother's old N64 and play Ocarina of Time.  I never made it through the whole thing...in fact I only made it about 3 hrs.  I always seem to lose my direction in Nintendo RPGs
4. I have a man crush on Mario.  How could you not?  I mean, every time I hear or say the words 'Ittsa me, Mario!' my heart lightens
5. I downloaded a trailer...yes a trailer. SSB Brawl.  It's still a great trailer. Who is MetaKnight?
6. I know already that because I'm grown with grown up responsiblities, the Nintendo rebirth into my life won't be exactly the jovial care free times that they were when I was a kid, but I'm hoping that some of the magic will be rekindled.
7. Who is Kirby and why does have his own games?

Okay- thus far I'm enjoying but progress is super slow as I figure out the game.

Questions: Is it better just to kill the enemies?  I've been tranqing and choking them out, but not killing them.  When they wake up, do they immediately go on alert?  I was 90% camoed and rose to my knees with no guards around.

Suddenly I hear 'WE're under attack.' So i hit the deck and go to 90% stealth and am in 'Caution' mode. The search patrol comes around and says 'we're under enemy fire', the assualt team arrives, finds me and hi hit reset- now at this point I've fired exactly 2 tranq darts on this section of map. One at a guard who I hid well out of sight and the other at a snake.  There's no way my presense was known unless someone woke up and called hq. Tips?

What are those green frog toys that are scattered all over the map...if you shoot them they make a funny noise. Any ideas?

Is there any easy way to tell which trees you can climb?

Is there any way to tell the encumbrance value of an item when you carry it on your person?

How do you get more batteries?

So last night, to ring in T-Minus 4 days, I opened up my first DS game to be played: New Super Mario Bros.  MAN! That cartridge is small!

I inhaled deeply and smelled the glossy manual and was instantly transported back to the late 80's and early 90's.  Nintendo was back in my life after 15 +/- years.

I played some Mario Kart in college, but by and large was a PC gamer for all of the 90s through 2002.

Oh Mario, I embrace you as kin once again!

For the 5 day celebration, I'm going to discuss which game I shall fire up first on my new DS Lite (after charging of course).

Right now I have Meteos (en route, purchased used), Mario Kart and Advance Wars and though I'm interested in playing each, I don't know that any one of them will be my first foray into handheld gaming.

I'm thinking I may buy New Super Mario Brothers, but I have a big problem paying full price for any game and I missed the circuit city sale on the game by mere seconds before it went out of stock online.

However, that game seems like it would be perfect for the beautiful bright screen and new handheld goodness.  Sadly, the cost is the biggest issue. What shall I do?
