Thanks for sharing, Majora! Am definitely liking this soundtrack, and I can't wait for Icarian. :3

edit: i've had it on repeat for the past hour or so. it's good, solid background music, and it's got a nice desert-y ambiance to it. i want more. D:

i went ahead and got it before anyone had a chance to post their impressions. the controls are a little sticky (sometimes i have problems getting that first box in a group to start folding, but once one's been folded the rest are fine), and it's no pictobits, but it's still kinda fun. we'll see how i feel about it in a couple days, lol. :3

if it's between Starfy and Mario Kart DS, go for Mario Kart DS. MK is good for chilling out and relaxing when you've got nothing better to play, but Starfy, it's gonna be a while before I replay it, and unlike MK it has no wi-fi multiplayer capabilities (only local).

it's nice to know at a glance if something rated an 8 out of 10 got seven of its points from innovative gameplay and one for plot, though, without having to wade through a wall of text and/or fifteen pages of screenshots for the details. :3

@Sean: i can safely say i've never seen a major brand of soda in a 3-liter bottle... it was always store-brand/off-brand stuff and weird flavors, like peach or strawberry or orange. bleh. also, i don't recall seeing them very often, though i could just be overlooking them at stores nowadays. what kind of stores are you going to where you see them in numbers enough to spawn that mini-rant? :3

i kinda like it when sites/blogs have categories for games that get scored individually -- graphics gets a score, soundtrack gets a score, ease of play/controls gets a score, plot gets a score, etc. and so forth -- that get added up into one big score at the end. that way, i have a better idea of what i may be getting into with a new game.

I actually enjoyed Doom, mainly because (a) my husband had just finished Doom 3 with me watching over his shoulder the entire time, so the game was still fresh in our minds, and (b) we went in knowing it would probably be crap anyway. :3 As for personal favorite, though, I'm gonna hafta go with Mortal Kombat. I still listen to the soundtrack every so often.

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.
