Anyway, turns out my past self figured out how to solve the spam bot issue.

In other news, when I ordered Chinese food, all they gave me was rice buried in vegetates which didn't even look like vegetates with a tiny amount of chicken on top.

It was like getting pineapple on my pizza from the past or something.

@ReaderRagfihs: Yep, that was supposed to be Nintendogs. Autocorrect is pretty touchy on my phone today....

@ThanosReXXX: Right, I know that what you linked wasn't the webcam roulette stuff.

As for the blowing into the mic: I did figure that out at one point, but it seemed prudent to use actual voice bits when training the dogs in those games. Other than lazy commands, none of mine were raunchy to my knowledge.

The only other games I recall heavily using the mic on were WarioWare: Touched! and The Legend of Zelda: Spirit Tracks. As much as I like some of the tunes of that Spirit Flute, I'm not sure that it's wise to make the player of your game lightheaded.

I remember in Dark Void Zero, being a retro throwback game, you had to blow into the DS microphone to start the game, just like you'd do to an old cartridge.

@ThanosReXXX I've thankfully not run into that in real life.....i can't even imagine. Headphones loud enough to hear, while on a head no less, externally have got to be loud enough to cause hearing loss within minutes when worn. Even open back ones let alone closed. Only time mine get loud enough to hear externally would be classical in highly dynamic passages... That can get mighty loud in contrast to the rest of the content just as it does live... But it also lasts seconds before sinking quiet again, thus not sustained SPL like modern brick wall limited mastering garbage.

Other than unamplified acoustic music i can't even do live music anymore. I used to... But the modern geriatric 25 year old both engineers seem to think anything quieter than the tarmac at LaGuardia is just too quiet. Last time i tried any live show my ears were in all out pain under pressure and sounded "hollow" for half a day after (insert dark souls pun). Never again. I'll listen to my cables..... And hard drives.... In quiet instead

Still ain't no Zuljaras level hearing though.

@NEStalgia That reminds me of a motor cycle someone owned near where I grew up. It was so loud that it actually overpower my headphones at the highest volume I could stand and that was just the guy driving by. I can't imagine how loud it was riding it. Why anyone would want that is beyond me. I have to imagine they just wanted to bother everyone.

@Anti-Matter Well, that was not shouting into the microphone, you could simply call the dogs in a normal way. But shouting was too ridiculous for me, and should be for any adult. But even talking into the microphone was just not my thing, and you know by now that I'm just not into all these cutesy games. It's just no fun for me. We all have our own tastes, and mine are different than yours.

@Blitzenexx For Nintendogs, yes, that would only be logical, but there were also cheaper, more shovelware-like games, in which you just had to shout, like battle cries for example, and these you could easily replace by blowing into the microphone.

I actually own the two Zelda games on the DS, but I never played them enough to find out about the 'musical instrument blowing' part...

@NEStalgia Haha, yeah, with headphones that would be VERY difficult. I should have written that down a bit clearer: the listening in on what moron has on his music player only happens with earplugs. Earphones more than sufficiently cover the ears, so no outside noises there.

I can relate to the live concert feeling, although I'd just say that my ears were still beeping for at least half a day afterwards. A little over a week ago, I went to a family party, of my aunt celebrating her 65th birthday, and they rented this club, with a band. Except the club was actually rather modest in size, and I get the feeling that the band's sound equipment was kinda calibrated towards a location with... well, to put it mildly, a little more space to fill the room with their music...

So, afterwards, half of the visitors had to pop the dents out of their eardrums...

(as was mentioned) Any ds game that asked you to shout, would literally only check for noise levels. Any sudden loud noise, like blowing close to the microphone, would register as a "shout".

So I never saw it as a problem.

Yeah I don’t know either.

I remember for Guitar Hero, you were supposed to yell "Rock on!" to activate super mode or something (I don't really remember), but the game also said "But if you're lame and won't say that, then I guess you can just blow instead."

@ReaderRagfihs Well, there you go: that was my whole point. They marketed the whole microphone thing as being able to interact with speech, but in quite a few games, you could just cheat, and simply blow into it, instead of actually saying something. As can be expected, the technology was used far better in Nintendo's own titles, and there were only a handful of other, third party developers, that also went through the trouble of actually using the microphone for voice recognition instead of "air pressure" or however blowing into the microphone works and reacts with a game. Perhaps it's still just a matter of volume.

It's a gimmick if anything, and sometimes it's fun, but most of the time, it isn't. Did you know that on the 3DS, you can actually make all the game logos move or spin, if you blow into the microphone?

Just insert a cartridge, or put the cursor on one of your digitally installed games, and blow into the mic, and the game's logo will either start spinning, or will perform some other motion.

Forehead clap Geez, I played all three Guitar Hero: On Tour titles and completely forgot about that. I thought yelling "Rock On!" was stupid and usually just made a random noise to get star power going.

I discovered this pretty early on while playing my original 3DS near a fan. I still occasionally blow into the mic on my systems just to mess around for a sec and make the logos revolve for a sec. Some game icons are lazy, but others were created with that in mind.
