DQ i've never been able to get into for some reason, so as for me, i'd have to say 'no'. :P

if you're trying to decide which DS remake is better, I think they're all good remakes that do a great job of showcasing the games themselves. I'm pretty sure FFIV and CT all got retranslated again for maximum faithfulness to their original scripts, too, and CT still wins out thanks to the Bird Studio FMVs they kept from the PSX remake. :3

IV is better than III. it was nice to play FFIII in english, but the story was lacking.
CT is better than IV (waaaaaaaay more replay value, plus the characters are more endearing IMO).

@IndianDan: because I myself have reverted all kinds of dates for Flipnote Studio from there that were the product of rumor, one dude who was on a hoaxing spree, and (most recently) a date for Kubos this past Monday that cropped up in one of the articles I keep an eye on. Wikipedia without an outside source for verification is not something I would trust on its own.

@Adam: I think you may have had R&D and Factory mode mixed up in your comment before... you said you haven't tried R&D mode yet, and yet you say you've been 'completing levels' and that the only reason to replay is to 'improve your time', both of which are R&D mode features. Promotions come to play in Factory mode, which is what i thought you were playing, and that's why i brought them up. my bad. :3

considering how (a) it's a cartridge, not an easily-scratchable CD, and (b) the big price difference between used and new, because this game is not worth all that much used, the only thing i'd really mourn about a used copy would be the lack of instruction booklet, if it didn't have one. :3

that's pretty weird, O_B, considering I could probably walk into the GameStop near where I live and find a copy for $5 (or whatever it was i saw it priced at last; maybe it was $9?). There was an absolute glut of PW games available for a long time because people apparently did not see the replay value and traded it in after finishing it. people trying to sell it for $90-something (yeah, i saw that crazy Amazon price too) when it can be found on eBay for less than half that price are either nuts or hoping to bag some uninformed collector with more money than they know what to do with. :/

@Pegasus: actually, there's quite a few products out now that limit how loud they go while headphones are plugged in -- I've had two MP3 players and a MiniDisc player that all shared that function. It's all about protecting your ears. :) I do like that the DSi has pretty good sound if I just want to listen to some tunes without headphones, though.

is Ear Muffs a brand name, or are you referring to the kind that go over the entire ear? Personally, I prefer those, because ear bud types kinda make my ears sore after a while, but the over-the-entire-ear kind squish my glasses to my head, which also hurts (but only if listening for a long time at one go). And then the type that hang off of your ears, the only pair of those I had pinched the tops of my ears, which hurt too. I'm screwed no matter which type I wear. :P

@irken: it's not like i wasn't solving them myself, after all... lol, i should post my worked-out solutions someplace for people struggling through. :P

@Adam: you realize you won't get promoted [read: unlock higher levels in Factory mode] unless you get through higher ranks in R&D mode, right? the higher your promotion you play at, the easier it is to earn more money. That's why I went through all that to perfect everything... i wanted that last promotion. :3

@irken: in order to perfect the last couple ranks in Boxlife, I started copying the puzzles down and solving them on paper so that I could solve them without being penalized... I noticed that only rarely would I see the same puzzle twice even through multiple replays at the higher levels (i'd have to play through again if i got a penalty on accident). Pictobits, though, I started getting bored playing through the same levels for coins (there's a couple that are more lucrative than others :3).

Boxlife is fun, but I haven't bought MFC yet so I don't know how it stacks up directly against it. I will say that Boxlife is easier if you play it regularly, but if you set it aside for a few days and go back to it (e.g. you haven't kept practicing) it's suddenly harder for a little while until you're back into it. I really like Boxlife, myself, but i can see how it might become boring to others.

re: irken004's suggestion... Boxlife versus Pictobits, though... Pictobits kinda disappointed me in that the levels aren't randomized. you don't start a level and eagerly await to see what it'll do this time; every play-through is the same, so once you've got a strategy in mind, that's it. it's got plenty of levels and the dark stages too, but without that random element, some of the potential challenge is missing. Pictobits definitely gets much love for the retro look, feel, and sound elements, though -- and the buying music to listen to is fun. In Boxlife's R&D mode, the puzzles are randomized (except for the first puzzle in each rank, which generally introduces a new pattern to cut out boxes), and then Factory mode is random re: where bombs appear and how the paper is shaped and such (i think re: the paper shaping) as it comes down the line. The look for Boxlife is cute and quirky, too, but as you earn 'money' you'll get upgrades for your little home area automatically -- there is no picking and choosing what to buy with your dough.
