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.

SuperSonic, that might be illegal... as a blue penguin that wields a giant hammer, CowLaunch is probably an endangered species. We don't want to get arrested or anything. :3

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).

hmm... from the looks of his avatar, he might prefer fish instead of chicken. perhaps CowLaunch (as a penguin) has some fish we can borrow for this peace offering/feast of assurance that we will never attempt to have a little fun display "internet 'wit'" ever again. :3

Yeah, how dare the original poster start a thread where everyone can be silly and have a little bit of fun!

I say we ban this "chicken brutus" fellow, whoever he might be.

For such an offense, the only possible punishment is a good ol' tar-and-feathering!

... er, waitaminute... assuming his avatar is a recent picture, he's already feathered, so that won't work.

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.

this is where the buttons are for me:

news articles: only on editing a comment
forums: only when posting an entirely new topic or editing a comment/topic.

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

I was so shocked at this news I texted Iwata, and he's totally coming over to my place. We're gonna watch Steel Magnolias and share a carton of ice cream, and then later we'll give each other makeovers. He said it sounded fabulous.

actually, a quick google search turned up a Joystiq article about it and this article here on Lines and Colors where they go over both Inchworm and 'Colors!', another drawing program for the DS. here's a different blog with a tutorial video up (for some reason the tutorial vids on the actual Inchworm website didn't work for me ).

i must admit I'm very tempted to go the Colors! route, but I'd have to look into which flash carts actually work with the DSi. hmm.
