Mine is a '95 Toyota Tacoma that needs a new clutch, so my husband and I are currently sharing his '06 Chevy Cobalt SS. I miss my truck... it's so forgiving re: shifting gears compared to the Cobalt. :(

Well i dont see why your knuckles hurted from holding it up. it would seem a bit too stiff using the d-pad. i prefer making link follow the stylus around.but it should let us put our own controls.i know a bunch of people who have messed up touch screens so they cant play.

ah, i didn't realize you were being sarcastic up there, then. my bad. :3 as for how my knuckles were sore, i don't know how that happened either -- i just remember that after a few nights of playing, my hand started to ache and i'd have to reposition the DS, but then i'd revert to the position that felt most natural to play in (if I had to hit the d-pad as well as the L button for whatever reason) and suddenly i realized that it really, really hurt to continue to hold the DS that way. the fingers that hurt were the ones that were supporting the DS (my ring and pinky), and if i'd been playing in front of a table it probably wouldn't have been an issue, but i was either sitting in a chair or lying in bed while playing PH for comfort reasons, and so i had to hold the thing up in front of my face and play somehow.

with other long games that offered button directional controls as well as stylus controls (Suikoden Tierkreis, for example; i'm pretty sure my last save on that game was 60 hours even), my hand(s) hurting wasn't an issue.

@cryptonic: the controls for Phantom Hourglass killed my hands (my left hand, anyway, because i use the stylus with my right). holding the DS up for as long as it took to collect enough orbs and hearts and ship parts to power Link and the ship up... my poor knuckles were sore for nearly a week after I finished the game. I, too, would like to have the option of button controls for this one as opposed to it being (mostly) stylus-only.

also, somersaulting was a pain in the rear end. it's a good thing knowing how to do it wasn't required to finish the game, because i'd'a been screwed. :P

@minial100: ... i was making a joke with that, because they are both good games, but Starfy is a platformer, and TWEWY is not, so on that level (and that level only, to be honest) Starfy would actually be the 'better' game. I think TWEWY is one of the best DS games out there, but if it's not your cup of tea, whatev'. :3

definitely seconding TWEWY RPG-wise, but if you decide to go rhythm game, you can probably find a copy of Elite Beat Agents for mad cheap now. :3 if you're in the mood for retro RPG action, though, there's always FFIII, FFIV, or Chrono Trigger.

@uriahheep: i dunno, Nintendo's all about playing together and wi-fi stuff, and it seems like an achievement/trophy system for games in a future Wii update/channel or their next console would be a good thing for them to include... i could see a 'show-off' channel for leaderboards or something, like the high scores they used to print in Nintendo Power back in the day (haven't been a subscriber for over a decade, don't know if they still do that or not). It's good that Microsoft is taking cues from Nintendo and trying to step up their game (direct competition benefits the end user in the long run), but Nintendo isn't so perfect that they can't possibly take cues from competitors.

i dunno, the train's just a stand-in for getting around by boat, it seems, and that worked all right for Phantom Hourglass. as long as there's still dungeons and puzzles to complete, and as long as it gets decent ratings, I'll at least give it a shot before dismissing it entirely. the non-train bits of the trailer looked interesting.

i was debating with myself whether or not to point out the obvious. :3

Also, there are exceptions to the metric packing rule you described, such as the half-liter, liter, 2 liter, and 3 liter bottles of beverages widely available. I can't really think of another exception right off hand, but I can never forget the bottle thing because those "16.9 fluid ounce" bottles are just so silly-looking. Fortunately, some companies actually started putting the metric measurement in the foreground for that size recently. Looks SO much better that way. :)

true. it's weird how that kinda evolved, isn't it, with just soda in the liter bottles? milk and juice are still sold in quarts and pints half-pints and gallons, for the most part. 2 and 3-liter bottles of soda are more popular than the 1-liter ones, though... it's so much easier to find 20 oz. bottles of soda in store coolers, and that's what you get out of vending machines, too. :3 personally, i don't care which is in the fore, so long as they keep the standard measurements on packaging someplace because that's what i'm most familiar with, and that's what all my cookbooks use.

@Stuffgamer1: TECHNICALLY, you're right. it was done that way more for international commerce than it was for the American consumer, though -- you'll note that those packages with the different markings on them say stuff like '1 pint (473 ml)' instead of '500 ml (1.057 pint)' or 'Net wt. 8 fl. oz./236 ml' instead of a round metric number and a decimaled amount of ounces.

also, there's always Google for a metric/American standard converter if you're frustrated. :3

It sounds like Starfy will be a good choice for you, but if you like Kirby, there's Kirby Super Star Ultra out for the DS too (remember Kirby Super Star for the SNES? same thing, only updated and with a couple new things added... if you've never played KSS, though, get Ultra, you'll love it!).
