i hope they at least give you the difference between used and new prices back. though i'd be happy to keep the genuine game, i wouldn't be happy for them to keep the difference when it was obviously used. :/

as for figuring out its authenticity, what game are we talking about? besides the fact that the pirates tend to go for more popular or rare OOP titles (Tetris DS, Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time) or games that are still in print and are still very popular (Mario Kart DS), the best way to figure out whether your game is genuine or not is probably going to be the manual... are the fonts on the warnings and stuff all of similar quality? any spelling errors? Mine had a 'Rapetitive Motion Injuries and Eyestrain' warning, lol... that (and other errors in the manual) was the biggest tip-off for me, but there are others, like the positioning of the stamped numbers on the back (if they're there, they should be horizontal), the quality and shape/positioning of the sticker on the front, and the quality of the cart overall in comparison with an actual DS cart.

I knew that animation would surface in this thread after some of the previous remarks. I was tempted myself, then thought better of it.

i figured if it hadn't shown up after 10 replies in this thread, it was fair game. :P

@RJay: remember that back then, they were dealing with storage limitations... I do believe I read somewhere that they did in fact have more levels planned out for the game, but they just couldn't fit them all onto the cartridge, so they had to leave them out. for what it was, it was great.

@BB Thrilla: you can't technically trade games with people on the wii (like if you played a VC game, didn't like it, and want to trade your rights to it to someone else in return for their rights to a game they purchased in the Wii Shop), but you can purchase games as gifts for people you have friended via Wii and trade that way (like how Adam sent me a DS game in return for me gifting him a VC game).

here's the article that shows some of the censored things, (hey, it's an informative article, and a lot of the edits were pretty silly IMO) including the SMRPG gesture (you kinda have to zoom in to see it, but I see why they changed it, lol). also, didn't they censor Croco calling Mario a 'persistent bugger' from SMRPG for its EU release? I'm pretty sure I read that somewhere.

depending on the game, if it's OOP and i know for a fact the copy i received is genuine, I'd be more likely to request the difference between the new and used prices to be credited back to me instead of sending it back and demanding a brand new MIB/sealed copy. as irken already mentioned, there's so many fakes out there in circulation that it can be hard to know if you're buying a genuine copy sometimes, i'd rather have a used genuine copy than a mint fake. :|

AvatarAdmin

theblackdragon

11,673. Posted:

classic games (well, all games, even) require work in order to watch the story (if there is one) play out, so the person involved has to be interested in working for those goals and that ending they want to see happen. also, many classic games are either one-player or very limited multiplayer, so that person will be spending time by themselves in order to play the game. with
classic movies, you don't have to do anything.... you just sit back and watch it play out, which makes them far more available to people who just want to chill out and watch something, especially with a group of friends. Public appeal and accessibility is everything, and anyone can watch a movie, whether you're a baby or you're on your deathbed, unlike a video game.
