I`m starting to wonder if scott sells these things... :wink: I`m starting to see why games etc. don`t evolve very much. Everyone bitches about anything new and complains about things taking a little time.
  I`m glad you guys can find some games you like for the psp, cuz none seem to look good to me. I`m not saying that the DS had a great launch lineup either...but saying the psp has a better lineup for launch is like saying the bigger pile of shit tastes better :wink: . And I still don`t see how you say the DS doesn`t use the screens good...M64DS mini games, Warioware touched...etc. You simply CAN`T play those games on any other system because they use the screens so effectively. Oh, well. To each his own.

I`m really late on this...but I just beat this game and...SPOILERS(maybe)...









 unlocked all the good stuff. Those new modes are quite a bit of fun so far. Wow, what a game.

I was gonna look at that. I always run 85 but it goes alot higher at certain resolutions. Up to 120 or so I think on some.

Your saying with my setup I can get away with that high in most games if not all? Does 2gb of memory make the difference? There`s not  much difference between the processors.

LOL srry doubled that last post...BTW, I just saw how much the udm(or whatver it`s called, the disk format for this) movies cost for this thing. $19.99 to $29.99. Kinda steep. I guess I`d rather watch a movie on anything but this. Just my opinion though.

My only complaint is that the non-sensical cutscenes are disproportionately longer than the gameplay.  Granted, after you get through a story level, there are many more games to play with no story at all, so this problem will seem moot eventually, but I'm not enjoying the story stuff as much as I did in the first GBA game.


 I actually like the story more in this one than the GBA one. They both are pretty wierd to say the least.

But now how about a more fair comparison of the DS to the PSP? The GBA isnt the one meant to compete with the PSP.

Okay, the DS adds another crappy screen that isn't really used well in any game I've seen.  The two DS screens still don't have the overall resolution of the one PSP screen, and still can't compare graphically.  I mean, one beautiful screen, or 10 year old graphics and a mini-map?  Easy choice to me.

I loved the design of the older GBA, the small one with the flip open screen.  The DS leaves me cold.  It is ugly, and to big for the small screen it has.  I really don't want or need the extra screen.  I want to focus on one nice area at a time.



 Wow, what did nintendo do to you? :wink:  To each his/her won I guess. I guess the DS screen in warioware isn`t really used well... :wink:
2614  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Wario Ware touched (NDS). Impressions on: February 16, 2005, 05:04:37 AM
This game rocks. I grabbed it earlier today. Fun stuff, really fun stuff. I`d say if you liked the other wariowares, you`d have to like this. Now that`s just my opinion, but I`m pretty sure that`s the truth. After two minutes of it I was convinced. I`d almost go as far to stay that if you don`t like this game, you don`t like fun. IMO.
 Graphics are actually a bit better than the gba game. Not great techically(but good enough,and bright and vibrant), but the artwork is good and funny.
 Sound, also better than the gba game. Every song/sound effect, etc. sounds great ...Everything sounds like it should. Some of the songs are rather funny.
 And the controls really do make it different in a good way. You don`t use any buttons for this game. Only turning it on or off uses a button.
 I`m sure it is shorter than the other ww games, but who cares when it`s this fun.

The very easy voice setup on Live! is great. That`s a big factor for me. Plus I wanna see how buggy the PC game is and how much the graphics differ.

I have a 3.0 ghz p4, 1024mb ddr, 6800gt 256mb, sb audigy2, etc. I`ve always ran 1024x768x32bit@85hz(sp?) , well not always but recently with this setup. I use some fsaa etc. But I always want to run higher resolution, but I like to have the same res/refresh rate for games and desktop etc. Here`s the question, what`s a resolution that popular and most if not all games support it? That`s why I stick with this. Every single game I`ve played in the last 5 years support this res. If i don`t stick with the same res, I have to always re-center the image on the monitor, and I`m lazy :wink: . And obviously I don`t wan to go to high, cuz then when something comes out more taxing...I`ll have to readjust everything. I know that a wierd request/question...but nevertheless does anyone have any ideas/answers? Thanks.

Well seriously though...I`ll play both sides here. There`s plenty of I hate/love steam threads around so I won`t do that. I`m sure some people have issues with steam just like anything else out there. I`m sure some people don`t, just like anything else out there. Steam isn`t perfect, it`s nice to have easy patching through it but it is still cumbersome IMHO, but it certaintly NOT the devil like some make it sound. Have you used steam? If not, how do YOU know what it`s like? I`d hate for someone to miss a game like this, because of these reasons...Game this good only come out every few years. I`d think about it before you do it, that`s all. I`m certainly not going to try and change your mind. But I would think more about it, since you have to wait anyways. Just my opinion, Later.

One more review is up. http://gba.gamespy.com/nintendo-ds/wario-ware-ds/587485p1.html 4.5 outta 5 is good stuff!


Pros
It's more WarioWare!; seriously, do you know how addictive these games are?
Cons
 Slightly fewer microgames than the original; the unlockable goodies are kinda lame.

The WarioWare series is really the ideal portable game -- they're incredibly easy to pick up and play for two minutes, but engrossing enough to keep you occupied for hours.

I`m even more sold!

As long as Michael "No one else will hire me since Ed went off the air" Ian Black is part of those VH1 retrospective shows, I refuse to watch.  I don't think there is a less-amusing "comedian" (and I use that term loosely) alive.  I've never seen anyone so smugly impressed with their own cleverness.


 I`m wasn`t really a fan of him, let`s say. But he did grow on me. SOme things he says are funny. For me at least.

LOL. I guess that would sound confusing if you didn`t know it was a show and that was the title. It`s on friday at 11pm I think on vh1. They also reair it all through the week. Seriously... if you watch you WILL like it. Well , you sure as hell should :wink: .

IGN gave it a 8.5 and gamespot gave it a7.5. There`s alot of glowing reviews of it out there. I`m still grabbing it. It`s like everything I expected.


Gamespot gave it a 7.2 actually, citing that the "touching" is repetitive and "boring" and the game is very short. "With the constant poking, dragging, and drawing these contests throws at you, it's easy to get good at them awfully fast. If you're cool under pressure, were any good at the previous WarioWare games, and are handy with a stylus, you'll get through the entire game in around an hour and a half."

I think I'll pass on this one.


 I`m not trying to convince you about anything, and now that is out of the way :wink: . Sorry you`re  correct about the 7.2 instead of 7.5 my bad. Not much of a difference IMHO though. Anywho...with the gba wario ware games I beat it really fast too,and I`ve had it for a year or more, and I still play it!!! ALOT!!!
 Plus these guys over at gamespot are NUTS!!! Wario ware for gba pretty much was the same thing over and over again too. Press A, or press left then right and so on.
 I agree it`s like tetris etc. you don`t quit when you beat it. It`s just fun to play over and over and over again.
 I`m not usually thinking like this but ...gamespot seems to dislike two things, xbox and ds. For what reason I do not know( I could certainly guess though). I always look at gamerankings and go by that. Plus I have watched the movies for this game and it looks just like I`d imagine. And I`m assuming it will play just like that too. I`ll be grabbing this tomarrow if I can find it, I`ll post back when that happens. Later.

2632  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / ATI or Nvidia? on: February 14, 2005, 10:05:25 AM
I didn`t want to sound like I hate ATI, I certainly don`t. i had a 9800pro before this 6800gt...I liked both. But the switch across from ATI to Nvidia can go smooth and then not so smooth without a reinstall etc. Some people I`m sure would agree with both sides. I`ve seen both happen. Anywho...If you have and like nvidia and you wanna stick with it, that`s one less problem that *could* pop up. That`s all.

 But anywho, we had our dogs teeth cleaned only because he was already getting something else done that required him to be put under. I`d ask the vet all kinds of questions just to be safe. Ask, ask, and ask more. It never hurts.
