@CowLaunch: Anecdote time! :D

i love Super Mario RPG to pieces. when it first came out, I begged my mom to rent it from Blockbuster for me, and I played it for three days straight (it was the summer, my little brother and sister were out with my dad for the weekend or whatever so I had unlimited access to the TV and SNES, good times). I think I had a handful of oreos on the second day, and that was it (except for the occasional drink) until on the afternoon of the third day when my mom sat me down and made me eat something lol. I slept in front of the TV, i was so serious about that game, but i also made some dumb mistakes (i didn't grind enough so I kept having to re-fight bosses, d'oh). I had just barely made it to the Axem Rangers battle when we finally had to take it back (yeah i can probably get through the entire game in one day now, lol, if i don't go out of my way re: sidequests), and I was so sad that my mom bought the game for me a couple days later. I've still got the original cartridge, and I actually hooked up the SNES every so often just so I could play that game until it finally came out for VC. I hope someday we get a true sequel someday, but i doubt it'll ever happen. TT^TT

does anyone know how long the battery generally lasts for SNES games with save options? I'm going to be a saaaaaaad panda when that thing dies and my original savefile is obliterated. :(

provided you're not just jerking our chains on this one, where is he going to school? that sounds so awesome. :3

I think a SMB2 themed game would be awesome. Different playable characters, pulling items, etc.

i agree! i stand by my hopes for an eventual New Super Mario Bros. 2/New Super Mario Panic, where they would take SMB2(US) and wrangle it into a title worthy of the franchise.

Tap the power button. It works as a 'home' button.

I didn't quite mean it in that sense, I meant it more like the way the Wii is set up, where you can change your Wiimote settings without having to exit out to the main system menu. tap the button once for the menu to pop up, where you can then use the stylus to modify your settings and/or exit the game entirely. it would be nice if you could change your wireless communications settings on the fly like that, in case you're like me and have a tendency to forget to do so before you start up the game. :)

Watch animes dubbed by FUNimation. They do very high quality dubs with well-known voice actors.

I always have to laugh when someone says this, because I remember FUNimation was such crap back when they took over the dubbing of Dragonball Z after Ocean Group. They are good now, they've worked hard to gain the trust of anime fans nowadays, but man were they terrible back then, lol.

they were certainly talking it up as a main creative feature of the DSi, and i believe one article had them [Nintendo] hoping for a release this year. Inchworm looks like the long shot, Moving Memo will be the sure thing (eventually).

why not look up what games are available for each? I've never heard of either console, to be honest, so i can't really give you any advice based on which one i'd rather have myself, but if you go through the list of available games, surely one of the two will have more games you really want to play available than the other...

Wireless Communications includes both Wi-Fi Connection functions and plain old DS-to-DS functions. you'll need to make sure it's enabled before you start playing, or (if Animal Crossing behaves like Mario Kart did) you won't be able to connect. you'll also notice that if you attempt to use Download Play, Pictochat, or the DSi Shop without your Wireless Communications turned on, it'll give you an error message telling you to change that option first. :)

I don't think it's just the browser, either, because I'm using Firefox, which has a built-in spellchecker.
