Achievement good, but achievement also bad.

that about sums it up, really, as we've got people firmly planted on both sides of the fence.

long story short, this thread is heading into the same circular pattern of arguing as the other three achievement-based threads we've had on the forums since August. If y'all want to keep wrangling with one another over it, take it to the main site article thread regarding this particular development, but remember -- and i'm looking at you, WaveBoy -- please keep it civil.

Since when did you (or Nintendo) have the right to tell people what they should find is, or isn't pointless?

taking that from the 'since when did Nintendo...' standpoint, i'd have to say maybe since they're the ones making the game system, they get to make the rules. they might change their minds later, but for right now it seems they've made their decision.

@Ravage: same here, i had a helluva time getting past that boss because i had problems with the key-actions sticking and flash being weird in general on me. However, I mean from the point beyond that boss until you get all the way back to the beginning; if you get from that point all the way back to start without looking back, is the ending any different... does anyone know?

@ToxieDogg: Nope, you still can't play Wii games directly from SD. idk what you're doing, or if you're just mistaken, but i've got the most recent System Menu update and games still have to copy to internal memory in order for me to play them.

Is the ending any different in Don't Look Back if you're able to get all the way back to the beginning without having looked back at all? Just curious :3

by 3D, it most likely means 3D sprites/graphics (as opposed to 2D), not 3D in the same sense as the 3DS.

I doubt you'll be able to transfer your DSiWare without having the original system -- even when Nintendo transfers your DSiWare to a replacement DSi they have you send in both the busted console you're replacing and the replacement for some reason. You can try calling Nintendo and seeing what they'll be able to do for you, but there's a good chance you're gonna be outta luck on this one. :(

@HM: thanks, but i already found videos of the various endings on YouTube before coming to the decision to trade/sell it. yeah, it's kind of a waste (mainly because i went out of my way to find it and spent money i'll probably never get back for it), but at least i can say i gave it a shot. :3

@OB: haha, ikr? i've pretty much been back and forth through wikipedia's lists of available games and that's about all that popped out at me so far that someone else here would be likely to have -- i'm picky, i guess. if no one's got it for trade (or anything else that winds up catching my eye) i'll just sell it on Amazon or something. :3

  • People who don't like horror/thrillers like Saw won't enjoy this. If you can't stand thrillers then seriously don't bother with this game. My brother and I both found the gory descriptions offputting as well, tbd. I found it interesting because we've played other games which display similar levels of gore (exploding bodies, guts, etc.) but never responded so intensely to it as with these text descriptions. I guess our imaginations can conjure worse images than artists can come up with.

yeah... sorry, i had no idea the game would be that descriptive. I knew it was a mystery, and that i'd be having to escape drowning in order to survive, and that's it (i didn't look up anything specific because I didn't want to spoil myself on it)... i really did my best to like this game, but i'm just not a fan of the horror genre. everything else was straight-up visual novel goodness, though, not really much wrong with that except for the fact that each character had to weigh in on stuff that you'd already heard three times and understood the first time, lol :3
