Yet you specified Japanese people for some reason. I think whatever you were going for with that just came out wrong.

you can tell what country your opponents are coming from, though -- the game shows you during the matchup process. i read it as he'd had more problems with this out of people from Japan.

I liked it, but then I have a basic knowledge of Japanese and I can read kana, so i was able to understand most of what was going on without having to find a video translation or anything. If you can just ignore the parts with text, you can play the game without having to know what's going on, to be honest.

My only gripe was that it took me 20-25+ tries to defeat the final boss. The rest of the game's mini-bosses/bosses were fine, maybe one or two tries to defeat them, but that last one, holy freaking crap. it's easier if you go back to an earlier stage to collect some powerup items and the best suit before every try instead of going in with the worst suit and no items, though, IIRC. :P

I'm considering getting this game. I've heard nothing but good things about it so far. Is this really the best of the Art Style games on the DSi?

granted, i'm not in the UK, so i've never played Code, but between Aquia, Pictobits, and Boxlife, I'd say you can't go wrong with either of the latter two. An Aquia enthusiast may beg to differ, but I've had way more fun with Pictobits and Boxlife than I have with Aquia. :3

@Stuffgamer1: i think Starfy is a good example of old ideas being put to good use. And sound effects. I swear the Kirby door-entering sound effect (or something very, very similar) is in TLS (sometimes when Starfy makes noise, though not often). :3

i prefer Pepsi. Coke has a cinnamon-y aftertaste that i'm not terribly fond of; it's warmer, if that makes any sense (and i doubt it does lol). Pepsi doesn't have that problem. Also, Diet Pepsi tastes way better than Diet Coke, holy crap. DDD:

Jager is awesome as long as you don't drink it straight. It also messes you up quickly without leaving you with as nasty of a hangover as some other booze.

straight Jager is awesome if you like licorice. :3 Also, if you think Jager is bad, avoid Colombian Aguardiente.

@Kknight, re: The Legendary Starfy: it doesn't spoil the game, and I don't know why people are complaining about it so hard. It's unexpected, sure, but it's only the final battle (and i'm assuming in the final timed battle if you want to unlock a special level after the game is over, but i started playing Boxlife and haven't gotten around to doing that yet, lol) where you have to press the Y button repeatedly like that. all you have to do is have your DS on a table or flat on your thigh or something and do your mashing with your index finger, and it's not like the entire battle is like that either -- it's just the very end of it, where there's a power struggle between Starfy and the end boss... think of an anime where two forces are shooting energy beams at one another, and one finally overpowers the other, and that's what that little part is. no big deal.
