DS is starting to look more and more promising.
« on: May 21, 2005, 09:09:24 pm »
I haven't gotten one yet, but I'm starting to really consider it. Up until now the amount of good titles has been rather lackluster...but there has been a whole slew of great looking games that have been being announced. Mario and Luigi 2, NEW Super Mario Bros., Another Code, Advance Wars, Sonic Rush, Animal Crossing DS, Mario Kart DS, Viewtiful Joe DS, etc.

Not too mention free Wi-Fi online play by the end of the year.

I really think I might get one when this blue one comes out here...

I'm getting a DS too. Way later though, when Castlevania Dawn of Sorrow comes out.
Looks pretty sweet..
Of course, I'm going to wait until the very last minute to get a DS, maybe a couple weeks before the game comes out. I don't want the damn things somehow going out of stock before I get the game.

Oh, I can afford to buy the thing any time. I just don't want to get it when I don't have anything I want for it.
I've already played the hell out of my friend's DS and his Mario 64 DS thing. That was fair, but not very interesting.
I'll hate myself after buying a DS for one game, but I hate it more having to borrow my friend's consoles all the time. Not that I ever have, but taking borrowing games from friends as an example. Good god, they're such a pain in the ass about it. They're worse than rental stores.
Too bad I'm the same way to them.  :-\

Ramble ramble...

I am also waiting for the price to drop a bit (I'm a total tightwad), and there's plenty of time for that before CVDoS comes out. No prob.

I was in Best Buy today and you can now get the DS in colors. They had several in blue. I bought mine last year and they only had silver.

First time I've seen them. But then I haven't been looking since I already have one.

Black and White Creatures!!!

I don't usually judge on graphics but that game is ugly.

Making one of the best RTS's ever into a TBS is probably the stupidest thing you can do!

Animal Crossing DS!!

I don't know any thing about that game.

I don't know anything about the other two but Animal Crossing is coming out in Nov. and should be great. That's the one I bought the DS for. On one of Steve's podcasts, he said there were four of them playing and one was in another city using Gamespy. Wouldn't it be cool if we could link up with other players from here?

That would be cool but not all of us have a DS and aren't really interested in buying one.

True but you only need four and surely there might be three other people willing to try it out of 400 members. ;)

That'd be great :D I'd love to do this....I just hope that you can connect to players all around the world not only in your region like "Europe" or "North America".

Black and White Creatures!!!

I don't think this really is that ugly. Up close the graphics don't look that sweet, but I think they're ok. The trees look really good imho.
You also have to keep in mind that the game isn't even close to completion yet.....

It is still ugly.

Edit: ok it may be good for what the DS can handle and I may be expecting to much.

Yeah, Animal Crossing DS will be online Wi-Fi enabled. It's also completely free! (Mario Kart DS is also going to be online).

I don't think you would need four people at the same time. I'm sure you can just have two or three people as well.

I just hope they put in some stuff that make it fun to go to somebody else's village...sure, you could have fishing contests or do hide and go seek or something. But that would get old pretty fast. If it's mostly just for replacing the password system from the GCN one, and making it a little easier to trade furniture I'll be a little dissapointed.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure it's going to be all around the world, but I'm not sure. I know that in Animal Crossing DS people can only get into your town if you manually insert there name and town and invite them. This is great, because if just anybody could enter your town chaos would surely unsue.

Well, when I get mine I'd like to try out that wi-fi feature with anyone else who wants to try theirs.

I'm waiting for some games to get released (such as Animal Crossing) before I grab my DS although if i win that stylis thingy from the podcast game I'll grab one right away. :P I'll be more than happy to test this WIFI thingy.

I still want to get a DS, but I have more important things to buy, like a new car. And I think I'll wait for games like advance wars, animal crossing, harvest moon, etc etc to come out. No point in buying it now when there aren't really any games I want to play on it
