I just registered. Not sure what else were supposed to do yet. I don't have any of the games mentioned.

None of them have come out yet. Mario Kart DS is the first and comes out on November 14th.

Sk8land is out already, I believe.
The Good
Same flashy graphics and user-friendly controls that have defined the franchise; Insane variety of tricks to learn and perform; Build custom character in story mode or control real pros in classic mode;
The Bad
Skate parks are generally too large and poorly designed for performing tricks; Missions in story mode require more wandering than tricking; Weakest story and characters out of all the Tony Hawk games;

It doesn't seem like their allowing people to register their DS's just yet or the link's just broken. Then again, maybe it's just me. I did stop by a McDonalds on the way back from work and their wireless is up and working. No games to test it with though.

I registered my Nintendog game, it was the only one I have handy. The only other ones I have is a SimsUrbz and a Mario game. I also registered my DS so the link must not have been working at the time.

ok, the link is working now...
maybe IE was causing it to break.
