I honestly didn't pay attention to the DS at all until I saw the first commercial for NSMB... a brand new Mario platformer on a handheld system? heck yeah I wanted that. When it came out, my husband and I had the money, so we both went out and bought our lites, NSMB, and MKDS. Man, that was fun. :3

It's offical. Nintendo is the very most hated video game company this generation. I am not over-exaggerating this, look at this thread again!: http://boards.ign.com/nintendo_wii_lobby/b8270/p1

It's increasing in a frightening pace. So far, as of now, there are 1,029 posts on that thread, 90% of which are hating on Nintendo. It's really sad how such an amazing company could receive so much hate and never be forgiven because of E3 2008. I fear for Nintendo's livelihood. Could there demise at the hands of angry former fans come soon? I hope it doesn't happen.

'frightening pace' my foot -- it's an article on the internet, and you're totally over-exaggerating. considering IGN's not exactly new to dogging Nintendo, if this 'demise at the hands of angry former fans' you keep suggesting hasn't happened yet thanks to one of their articles, it's not going to.

@Sean: lol, appropriate -- O'Brien married Keiko in that very episode I was talking about :3
if you already knew that and weren't just making a joke, i apologize for telling you what you already knew, lol

@warioswoods: i think that's why I liked O'Brien. Geordi and Data solving everything (sometimes with help from holograms or Wesley, lol) was great, but O'Brien got down and dirty with stuff all the time. He also had the family thing going on... DS9 had a lot of family stuff going on, in fact. I think that helped ground that series more firmly into some form of reality, with the characters having actual family around to interact with and stuff. it's one thing to see a character out in space, but it's another to see that same character going home to his son or his wife and child in space or finding his estranged father and having to deal with them.

AuthorRe: What is your honest opinion of Nyx Quest?

theblackdragon

10,546. Posted:

I can see where people keep comparing it to LostWinds with the wiimote controls, but I thought LostWinds was much better than NyxQuest, to be honest. Nyxquest was short, and I would've liked more variety in the color palette, but for what it was, it kept me busy for a while. the difficulty really ramped up toward the end IMO... i remember i pretty much cruised through all the levels except for the last three or so, where all of a sudden i started to die over and over, lol. i still need to go back and get all the artifacts.
