@WaltzElf: there's a full textual review behind the link Odnetnin posted that looks fairly comprehensive to me. If the reviewer felt the need to give it a 4.9 even after all that, it can't have been without reason.

@ckites: from the demo video i watched a while back on The Nintendo Channel, to play this game, you only need one DSi with the game on it. You have to pass that DSi around to each person playing the game; no one else has to have a DSi at all. :3

@WaltzElf: Sure there's a way to "save" a piece of paper... just don't throw it away. Tack it onto the fridge with a magnet if you like. :3

Honestly, I'm with Hardy. To me, Mixed Messages is not worth it, because besides the 'you can play it on paper' argument, you have to hand over your DSi to someone else. I love my friends, but I wouldn't trust most of them not to drop a stuffed animal, let alone my DSi. D:

@Adam: it had something to do with the SNES-CD format... while Nintendo would have kept control over all SNES cartridge games (of course), Sony would have had final control over what did and did not get released on the SNES-CD format discs. That's why Nintendo welched out of their contract with 'em; Hiroshi Yamauchi didn't like that at all.

Nintendo was (and still is) afraid of piracy so they held off discs for a while, and just told Sony to scrap it.

actually, Nintendo didn't like what was in their contract with Sony for the SNES-CD (as in Sony would have final control over what was and what was not released, or something along those lines where Nintendo would be giving away control over their games to another company), and that's why they partnered with Phillips -- they kept the control in the contract with Phillips that they had (accidentally?) given away in the contract with Sony. It had nothing to do with piracy.

That was an awesome episode of Mythbusters... Adam and Jamie were testing myths about drunkenness and response time, pain reception, coordination, the whole nine yards. Here's an awesome gif of Adam being slapped from that same episode iirc:

(a) do your best to rack up purple blocks early. Two of the bike riders in the image have purple suits.
(b) many of the formations involve L-shaped blocks stacked onto each other in groups of three... set one bit to 'catch' the open L-shape, and then set the two others while all the blocks are stopped in mid-air. while they're stalled, you can continue to place blocks for (and into) other formations to clear them. use that time wisely.
(c) again, try to beat it quickly. Later on in the level, giant block formations begin to fall... they're good if you're fast enough to clear them as they fall, because they have a ton of bits in them, but they're bad if they're not the right colors you need. D:

The key to pictobits is that, in each level, the falling block formations are repeated each time. Replay the level enough, and you'll pick up on the pattern and what you need to do to clear the level. The only bad thing is that, when you get to a certain point with the game, it's too repetitive to be very much fun. I wish there had been more randomization to the patterns of falling blocks.

@Turbo: as I said before (plz to see reply 68), 'twenty-one hundred', 'twenty-two hundred', 'twenty-three hundred', etc. -- those are fine, because there's no round number (ten, twenty, thirty, forty, fifty, sixty, seventy, eighty, ninety) in the initial tens space. As long as it's not a round number, saying it as '(tens-value) hundred' (as would be in the case of the year 'twenty-one hundred') won't get you laughed at or ridiculed. :)
