you might want to try checking GameStop's website, they'll list which stores in your area have copies, and you can call those stores directly. they should be at the point where they're selling preorders that no one picked up yet, and if they say they're not, i'd try reminding them of their company policy -- they're only supposed to hold those preorders for like two or three days after the game hits.

that said, i just checked Amazon... sorry Link79, but dang, i'm glad i ordered my copy when I did. no way i'd pay more than retail for it :O

@bboy2790: come on, now, there's no need for 'well you should've gotten it at launch if you wanted it so bad' -- i know I straight-up didn't have the money for it until the payday after it hit, and by then there were no copies left in town... believe me, i checked everywhere. not everyone is as privileged to have the money for everything they want as soon as it comes out; if you are so blessed, good for you. :/

a quick google search turned up your answer. apparently you need to use either composite cables or a PS2-branded scart cable instead.

unfortunately, the only way you can get online with DS cards is if your wi-fi uses WEP encryption. the Wii and DSi both support WPA, which would explain why you can connect with the Wii and not your DS, though (and note that DS games played on a DSi still require a WEP connection to get on the internet, even though the DSi can access the DSi Shop and use the Browser without it). you'll have to set up a WEP connection for your network (or ask your parents to do so if they're the ones managing it) to allow you to play DS games online again.

@Twario: remember that video games are for people of all ages, not just the adults he's saying have 'matured'. they'll always be catering to children as well as adults; there's no way they'd ever risk losing that market. kids are way too important to the video game industry. there will always be platformers and simpler games, just as there's comedies and lighthearted movies alongside the serious dramas, fun and fresh books alongside the timeless two-thousand page classics, etc. and so forth.

@Fuzzy: i think i totally know what you mean... sometimes it was annoying to be all up into getting a normal yellow star only to find a green star while exploring something and having to go allllll the way back from the beginning again to collect said yellow star. if there's a SMG3 (or in the next incarnation of the 3D Super Mario series), I'd like to see them allow us to collect green stars and then keep going with whatever else we were doing in the level. :3

(a) 'fun' is a very relative thing; there are people out there who can and do with great gusto enjoy games that are 'disturbing, depressing, timely, political, thought-provoking, and, above all, meaningful', just as there are those who just want to play Tetris Attack and wipe the floor with a buddy. and note that there are people who love both types of games :3

(b) as he says himself, what he's talking about will take decades, and he'd be a fool to be talking about all video games -- obviously, there is a definite demand for simple puzzlers, platformers, and other light-hearted games alongside the super-serious JRPGs, the combat simulation games, and the drama/horror games, just as there's still demand for playing card games and board games even in this day and age for people to relax with. I still play solitaire to relax and drown out the events of my day sometimes, and people will still play solitaire in the future, whether in electronic format or not.

Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock
Okami

Smackdown vs. RAW 2009
Dragonball Z: Budokai Tenkaichi 2
Mini Ninjas
Epic Mickey (though this is an xmas present for my hubby, ssshhhhhh~)
Lego Batman
Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga
A Boy and his Blob

AB&HB and NMH I was given as a gift/bought used respectively (I was too late to find NMH anywhere brand new, holy hell was that a search and a half just for a used copy, too). everything else i purchased myself, though I have since traded in Budokai Tenkaichi 2 and Lego Batman.

@StarFox: SSBB isn't third-party.
