I would have to agree with Ravage about Shining Force II over the original -- I got the original because my husband said the second was so great, and ended up hating it so much I still haven't gotten around to buying the second. if it's indeed so awesome, just go with SFII. :)

did you break off part of your headphone connector inside the hole or something? there could be a bit of metal down inside there that the system senses as a pair of headphones and is sending signals to... the DSi won't play audible sound when (it thinks) there are headphones connected.

in fact, i just tested this theory with a piece of tin foil... the DSi's speakers stopped playing while the foil was inserted.

No, I think he means that he sometimes accidentally turns off his game when it's on.

o_O how the heck does someone manage that? i've never even had that happen with a Wiimote.

Here's the message he sent me from youtube:

"I'm not banned... I WAS banned! And yes ive been seeing that topic over hours... Send my regards.
I said last month that it would come Mid-August possible 24 August, to bad that moment i was banned, i didn't care about Nintendolife anymore so goodbye..."

No he didn't, because at that point in time (shortly before Dazza locked that one thread) he was pissed I'd followed him through at least two other threads countering his continued insistences that he was Lord God King Right about the July 31/August 3 dates with 'sorry, those are still rumor at best'. I don't understand what his deal is... it's not necessary to lie to people about things (having sources at Nintendo, saying Nintendo announced at E3 -- after their televised press conference -- that it would in fact be released on those dates, whatever) in order for them to like you. >:/

@superzeldaman: KH wasn't actually based on a movie, though, like The Lion King was. movie tie-ins are games based on actual movies... they're usually constrained to the look and plot of the movie, they're usually released alongside the movie's debut in order maximize sales by taking advantage of the hype, and they usually suck rather horribly. :)

11,816. Posted:

Mario Kart DS and New Super Mario Bros. both have download play, though NSMB is limited to mini-games and versus play only and MKDS doesn't have all tracks enabled (but what's there is fun for a while :)).

As for games with download play you could take or leave, Elite Beat Agents has download play, though (like Mario Kart DS) you've got a limited list of songs to choose from when one cart is involved, and i've only played versus before (never tried co-op mode). Star Fox Command has versus play, but it's boring after a while. Kirby Super Star Ultra's download play allows you to play through Spring Breeze along with the person with the actual cart, but you'll both be looking at the same screen to play (if i read the manual right; never bothered with it because i hate playing with someone looking over my shoulder). It also has two-cart play available. Starfy's download play is one level at a time, which is too annoying for continued play with someone else to be honest (especially because the levels with Starly are kinda spread out if you're playing the game straight through). can't think of anything else off the top of my head with download play that i've bothered with. :/

And the worst ending for a video game on DS is-(insert insane amount of ellipsis here)-Transformers: Decepticons (the original). Basically, you beat up Starscream in-game but for some reason end up being half-killed by him afterward in a cutscene, so Megatron gives chase and puts an end to his cowardly existence. Megatron returns to meet you, and you request he repair you 'cause you saved his sorry shell. But alas, it's not to be. Megatron steps on you, you groan a final overused groaning sound bite, die horribly, and...The End! Thanks for playing!

bwahahahahahaha! that sounds like it would be fun to play just to watch that happen. :D

At least Palpatine/Sidious was around for way longer and was way more evil and nasty... he had personality, something Maul lacked. You'll never see Darth Maul ranking as highly as Palpatine on any lists of 'greatest villains of all time', y'know. :P
