Re: Your opinion on New Super Mario Bros. DS

theblackdragon

If you're not scouring the levels for the special coins (or trying to make it past Bowser as mini-mario, lol), it's a pretty fun little platformer, though a tad on the easy side. I enjoyed the 2.5D graphics style, and I liked that they added in the wall-jump as a 'new' move for Mario. The new powerups, though, I can live without to be honest; they felt kinda gimmicky... I'm not a fan of the big mushroom, the mini-mushroom is annoying at best and i only used it to get those special coins, and I hated the blue shell. Just give me my mushrooms and my fire-flowers in a Mario platformer and I'm good to go. :3

Re: Busted DSi L Buttons?

theblackdragon

Call them and talk to them, Cheezy, and see what they say, and also back up all your games/apps/pics/whatever to SD before sending it off. It may take a week to get it back (like the Wii that was sent off just recently on the forums; it came back a couple days ago, but i forget whose it was at the moment), but your buttons will all work again.

I think most of us are wary about sending off our beloved (and expensive) consoles to be repaired, but just talk to Nintendo's customer service line. They'll be able to reassure you and tell you flat-out what will happen or not happen to your DSi's games/settings info (aren't they able to transfer all that stuff to a new DSi if push comes to shove and they have to replace the entire thing?); i'm sure they have to do it all the time with wary consumers. :3

Re: When It Turns 2010 are You going to Call It "Two Thousand Ten" or "Twenty Ten?"

theblackdragon

@Turbo: but 2000 years is twenty centuries; the 'centuries' part doesn't need to be stressed unless you're actively discussing centuries, and even then you'd be saying 'twenty centuries' (or 'the twentieth century', in which case you'd be discussing the 1900's)... are we crossing wires somewhere or something? ^^;

@Turbo: notice you don't see a car advertised as 'twenty-hundred bucks'; it would be 'two thousand'. Same for 1000, the year would be 'one-thousand' as well as the price of the car, as 'ten-hundred' just sounds... weird. :3

Re: When It Turns 2010 are You going to Call It "Two Thousand Ten" or "Twenty Ten?"

theblackdragon

@Turbo: people don't say 'twenty-hundred' or 'thirty-hundred', though... twenty-two hundred, sure, and thirty-three hundred, again, sure... but when there's a round tens-value number at the beginning of a year, you don't say '(that number)-hundred'; you go back to thousands to express it for the first nine years, and then after that it could either be expressed in thousands or double tens-values (twenty-ten, twenty-eleven, twenty-twelve, etc.)... and there's no need for names, dude.

i mean seriously, pronounce it however you like wherever you are, i'm just saying i'd get funny looks and/or end up laughed at if i tried pronouncing it the way you suggest here in the US.

Re: When It Turns 2010 are You going to Call It "Two Thousand Ten" or "Twenty Ten?"

theblackdragon

@Turbo: did I mention the millennium? I'm talking about pronunciation... even without that book already released, we'd still have been calling the year 2001 'two-thousand one' (or 'two-thousand and one' depending on the person) because the year prior had been the year 'two-thousand'. it's the natural progression of numbers (as we count them aloud), and also, i don't think anyone would even understand what i was talking about if i called it 'twenty-hundred'. o_O;

also, lol, DSi, best typo ever :3

@Turbo: so what were we supposed to call the year 2000, twenty-zero? it would've happened on its own, 2001 or not.

Re: The best part about the Nintendo DSi

theblackdragon

i bust out the camera on occasion to take pics to post to facebook (it's cheaper than trying to use my phone to do so), and the DSiWare shop is fun, but i think the best part is the larger screens and better speakers than the Lite. I also like the ability to change screen brightness on the fly. :3

Re: Nintendo's frustrating history of being endlessly ripped off: a retrospective

theblackdragon

@grenworthshero: computer keyboards, though (or all the ones I've ever used, anyway) weren't laid out in a diamond shape -- it's one key centered over the bottom three keys, making the comparison somewhat skewed. in no way are arrow keys going to be confused with an actual d-pad, ever, but that Milton Bradley thing looks like a prototype version of the d-pads we all use now, sure.

Also, considering the messy history regarding the SNES-CD and its basis for the PlayStation anyway, I'm not surprised Sony would have designed the original controller with the SNES one in mind, and also, good for them. Nintendo has a history of kinda screwing around with the wrong people, to be honest -- or, perhaps the right people, as the consumer reaped the benefits of the PlayStation and FFVII after Nintendo kinda screwed over both Sony and Square respectively. :3
