@Matillion: DSi-only games are easy to spot — they come in white cartridges (in the US, at least; can anyone confirm outside the US too?) and use the DSi logo (with the little 'i' beside the 'DS', just read carefully). there were very few DSi-only titles released, though — there was System Flaw and some fighting game here in the US iirc. wasn't really interested in either one, lol :3

DSi-enhanced games you'll have to be more careful to spot... they should be marked on the boxes that they're DSi-enhanced, but if you're buying cartridge-only, just be aware that their cartridge codes supposedly start with 'TWL' (as opposed to 'NTR'... not sure if that's true for all of 'em?). there haven't been a whole lot of DSi-enhanced titles released either (mostly crap, really, IMO), but stuff like Pokemon Black and White and Sonic Classic Collection are DSi-enhanced, in case you were interested. just do your homework and be careful :3

(a) DS games are region-free, and can be played on any region DS, DSi, or 3DS.

(b) DSi-enhanced games will play on any region DS, but must be played on a same-region DSi or 3DS (there is no way to bypass the DSi-enhanced features).

(c) DSi games are region-locked, and must be played on a same-region DSi or 3DS.

(d) 3DS games are region-locked, and must be played on a same-region 3DS.

Gamers who think their idea of fun is the only one.

I really hope that wasn't directed at me. I basically said the same thing about people who are obsessed with FPS games. There is so much more to play than just FPS games. Some people need to expand their horizons and stop sticking to just one thing.

Example, I consider myself a Nintendo fanboy. I love Mario and Zelda games. I also love Mega Man. Platformers are my favorite genre.
But I also enjoy games like Portal, Burnout, Dead Space, Assassin's Creed, Halo, etc. All games you generally wouldn't find on a Nintendo system.

why does it matter how other people choose to game? you play what you want, everyone else will play what they want. life goes on.

What I'm starting to not get, tendoboy1984, is why you've been starting brand new threads every time you want to discuss something lately, even when you created the original only a short while ago. Your original 'handheld gaming vs. smartphones' thread is here. Please use it to continue this discussion.

when Super Mario RPG first came out, i begged my mom to rent it from Blockbuster for me. then i spent the next three days parked in front of the TV — the only time i stopped was when i had to use the can, when i fell asleep (on the couch, still in front of the TV lol) and then toward the end of the three days, when my mother forced me to actually go into the kitchen and eat something. i seriously did not eat for nearly three days because of that game :3

... the sad part is that we had to take the game back around that point, and i still hadn't even gotten to the Valentina fight. i'm a frickin' pro at that game now, but my first playthrough was sloooooow and i was such craaaap, haha D: D: D:

from the Nintendo Life 3DS FAQ:

What is Spot Pass and how does it work?
SpotPass will allow you to obtain free games, videos, and game data whenever you come within range of a Wi-Fi access point. This will provide Nintendo with a way to send out information and even free game titles to users without the 3DS owner having to do anything other than come within range of a wireless hotspot.

i would agree with this if it weren't for the fact that i think Chrono Cross was complete and utter crap.

CT just saw an awesome release for DS, and it's also available for VC. it's time for something else to have a turn at a remake IMO (or, better yet, something new and original plz, or perhaps a long-awaited sequel of some sort)

are you moving your DSiWare games on and off of the SD card? when you move a DSiWare game to the SD card, all save data is lost.

(note: this is true for the 3DS only — on the DSi, only a select few games lose save data when moved to the SD card)

just so everyone knows, we don't need any more advertisements in NL Chat for this — we know you're trying to be helpful, but it's getting annoying. we've already been linked several times, and those of us who want to be in there (and who have access to it) are in there already. just do like we do for a TinyChat if you want to attract people — lurk, wait for someone new to join chat, invite them with a link as you say 'hi' and leave it at that. thank you! :3

@XyVoX: you realize you'd need to have a North American 3DS in order to use a NA points card, right? you can't just change an EU 3DS to the American region, same as you can't with a DSi or a Wii. if i'm not mistaken, AUS 3DS owners can change their region to EU (and vice versa, but who would want to — no offense, aussies) because EU and AUS have both been kinda lumped together since time began in terms of video gaming, but that's it.
