Line Rider Coming to DS & Wii!
« on: December 21, 2006, 06:15:18 pm »
This is good news, folks. I put this thread in the 'Portable Games' section 'cause I'm trying to imagine something as good at just wasting time with as Line Rider and coming up empty. And since the DS is the current king of wasting time and having fun while doing so, it only seemed appropriate.

If you haven't had the opportunity to try this game out, go here. And if you want to see what others have been able to accomplish with the game, check this out as well. :)

Is this to buy or just download? Because I don't really want to pay money for Line Rider, when it's free on the PC.

I'm sure it'll cost money, though I could see it being less expensive than an ordinary DS game. Frankly, the portability of the system and sheer perfection that is the DS's touch-screen with that concept makes that okay for me. That said, not everyone's going to want it.

Hmm well elts see, megaman ZX came it in september in the US, and it is expected to be out in something like february over here, so I should expect this around.... 2008?

Seriously though, it does look like fun
What have you got against intellectual midgets? They're quite smart little guys as far as i can tell.

Um ... Line Rider would require absolutely nothing to be released worldwide, particularly on the DS.

This is my point, the DS is regionless (Isn't it?) SO why do I have to wait nearly 6 months for a game that's already out in America!?

Absoloutley useless, unless there was some kind of mission mode to make it deeper. Without it, it's definently not worth paying for. There would be individual Warioware microgames with more depth.

I agree. I'd pay for the game if it was a minigame in something else. But not standalone.

'Cause NOE sucks and they're trying to localize them with other languages built in for Europe. That's usually the argument towards the delay. But if you really want a game, just import it. Sometimes it ends up being cheaper that way besides.
