@SSBF: Leave the moderating to us, will you? You keep asking people to stay on topic even though they're doing just fine on their own, and also, you did mention Earthbound first, after all. No fair expecting people to adhere to rules you aren't willing to adhere to on your own. :3

I just wish to know how many of the people who said that completed the game, actually finished all levels eating just melons and got the black and white Yoshis. This game is about scores, if you beat it once and didn't stand the gameplay, hated the music and simply didn't enjoyed it, nothing to do, but if you liked it, there's a lot more stuff to uncover on this game. Personally, I like the gameplay, music and score system, but that's just me. :)

I did indeed complete every level, get every melon, and find the black and white Yoshis. I still was not a huge fan of this game, lol. Beating my own scores did not interest me in the slightest, though making sure I had fully completed the game did keep me busy for a couple days. :3 I just remember that there was a Nintendo Power article or something back then where Miyamoto had been explaining his vision for Yoshi's Story and why they'd created it the way they did (where the ultimate goal was to beat your own scores and compete with your friends amongst yourselves to see who had the best score), and I think I facepalmed when i was done reading it. Ah well.

i do not think that having Moonwalker available reflects in any way on whether or not we'll get more licensed games down the line -- probably the only reason they've even considered releasing that game on the VC is because the family/estateholders/whomever is/are trying to pay off his outstanding debts any way they can.

man, i remember hearing about Benoit and being sad as hell that night they ran the tribute (before they found out what had actually happened...). we actually bought the Royal Rumble and Wrestlemania PPVs in '04 (we buy them when we can); that's the Benoit I like to remember when i think about him. i dunno where Benoit or Eddie ended up, but I hope they're getting in some good matches together even if they're not in the same place.

I picked up Hannenbow earlier, and I'll probably be picking up Beatnes later tonight. I had fun messing around and trying to get the plant to bloom. I could definitely see me just setting this thing up to run as background noise while i'm messing around on the computer, or if i need to relax after work or something. I like how you can turn on the angle degree notations if you want to get all technical with your plant setups, and you can also switch plants with select to get different ones to try. if you were a fan of Rhythm Heaven's little minigames, these might be fun for you... they're not really 'games' so much as they are 'neat little sound applications'. i just wish you could save the music you create and listen to it later if you wanted. :/

the main things were that it didn't have much of a 'story' and it wasn't very hard, really. The entire point of the game was for the player to attempt to outdo themselves by aiming to collect mostly melons, trying to get the black and white Yoshis, playing through each level (as in getting through all the different possible pathways through the 'story') and then, when they're all unlocked for replay, to try and rack up a better score than before in each level. That, and the annoying sounds/soundtrack, didn't sit well with everyone. :3

The first thread includes detailed instructions for converting via iTunes by yours truly, the second is an older thread where i believe there was discussion of using other programs to convert your music files. Feel free to bump either of them. :3

@yendi: it'd probably work something like the way it does now with the Wii, where you'll have to keep enough space open on your DSi to load the game into memory before you can play it, but i can see that happening eventually. :3

i don't like that thumbs-up-thumbs-down/plus-1-minus-1 stuff. like you said in your previous comment, Luigi, on some sites the comment gets grayed out and barely readable/disappears into the comment tree if it's voted down enough, which I don't agree with -- we're all here and we all deserve to have our say, whether your opinion is unpopular or not, and also i can see that function being abused easily on the main site. it's easy enough to skip over something you don't feel like reading. just like forum post counts, i'm happy we don't have it here. :3

You need to get 'Oak's Parcel' (as in your Pokedex) from Viridian before you can trade. As for having two pokemon in your party, I'm pretty sure this is the case, but I can't find any proof for it online (except for latter incarnations of the game)... I did look in my own manuals for Pokemon Red/Blue, Yellow, and Silver, but none of them mentioned you needing at least two pokemon in your own party to trade. Sorry, man. :(

@hoodtrix: there's always Metacritic; that place gathers scores from websites across the net as well as magazines IRL and collects them for easy access. There's also links provided to reviews online to go with the scores if available. Just type the name of the game you're interested in up into the search box and it'll pull up what it's got for you. :3

@hoodtrix: there's Mario Kart DS if she likes MKWii, and then there's all kinds of cute non-games she as a non-gaming second-grader might like -- Nintendogs, the entire Imagine series... and if you want to try to get her into some cute actual games, there's Kirby Superstar Ultra, The Legendary Starfy, Super Princess Peach, and other milder games available for her to try. If you'd like to try and get her into older platformers, too, the DS phat and lite are both equipped with the GBA slot, so that you can find the Super Mario Advance series for her to play as well. She may like those. :3

as for IMing, you may be thinking of PictoChat. PictoChat is only able to connect to other DS systems within its range (about 65 feet, according to Nintendo), and to be completely honest, it's the most useless part of the system. However, if she's wanting to play with her friends, she may get some fun out of it. Even if she can't read or write well yet, pictochat allows you to draw and doodle pictures and send those as 'messages' to the chat room at large (or, if she prefers, there's an on-screen keyboard that will allow her to hunt-and-peck for letters to type in with her stylus and make messages that way).
