@Machu: Paper Mario has the timed button presses going for it that probably kept you interested. I don't mind timed button presses (in fact, I welcome them; anything that helps to increase damage done during an attack is fine by me :D), also, Pokemon (the older ones, at least) doesn't have much of a plot going for it outside of battling, so i agree with you that it's pretty boring on its own.

@JustYourAverageBleh: V1 was the original version released in '08. V2 was released this past april, and it included new pens and brushes, advanced layering and zoom tools, a copy/paste function, and the ability to send memos or animations to friends via the internet. it also added new functionality with the Ugomemo Hatena website (the website people use to upload their animations for others to see).

@Machu: that's why i'm open to having a choice, so that both sides of the issue are satisfied. personally, I love having the time to pick and choose which attacks or spells or whatever to build up my turn in battle, with no pressure other than HP, speed, who's stronger than whom and oh no, i'm running out of MP or (insert item here). :3

since you've never played a Zelda game before, get Ocarina of Time first. It'll get you used to 3D Zelda play, and if you decide you like it, get Majora's Mask afterward.

As long as there isn't the "Random Battles", I could go for it.

i think it would be par for the Zelda course if Nintendo were to leave it so that you can see random enemies on the screen and fight them or avoid them as you will, kinda like Chrono Trigger or SMRPG/Paper Mario/the Mario and Luigi games.

a spinoff game could be fun... i'm still waiting for Nintendo's answer to Kingdom Hearts (with characters from different series-es coming together in an RPG). i get the feeling i'm gonna be waiting for a looooooooong time though. :(

there's still the chick in that new art to consider (the one suspected of being the Master Sword?) and whatever other new NPCs they throw into wherever they're going to place the story this time around. they may have someone else entirely to fill the role of Ilia and Malon.

Malon's role (cute human non-princess possible love interest for Link) was pretty much taken by Ilia in TP. Considering Link already had Zelda, Midna, and Ilia, I think Malon would've been overkill. As for whether or not Malon should be in the next game... i dunno, it doesn't really matter to me. :3

to be honest, the only reason I cheated the clock was because I wanted to unlock the last couple of promotions in Factory mode. I think I may have to go back and 100% R&D mode in order to unlock the last one, though. other than that, I love Boxlife. :3

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
