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.

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.

Yep, even the source says there's been no official announcement regarding what'll be revealed at said conference, though we can assume all we like, i suppose. idk where your 'predictions' are coming from, but there's no telling what'll go down.

@WaveBoy: agreed on the soundtrack... i just wish there'd been more songs to choose from to offset the fact that i'm not a fan of half of them. it's definitely saying something about how fun the game itself in when people are praising it regardless of the lame soundtrack, though :3

vaguely comprehensible wall of text

look, all's i'm sayin' is that they're still producing PS2 games, so there's no telling how long devs will stick by the DS format. plus, if people don't take to the 3D gimmick and demand for the DS/i is still there, Nintendo will continue to provide the consoles too, plain and simple. there's also the as-yet-unrevealed price point to be considered; if they continue to produce some DS games, they can continue to market the DS/i as a budget system in comparison to the 3DS.

I'd also like to mention that the more advanced these handheld consoles get, the less durable they seem to be. My old gray-brick GB went through more torture than I'd like to admit and ran like a champ up until the point i lost the thing, whereas my DS had a cracked hinge, I've had to send my DSi in for replacement, and there's hordes of users complaining about broken L/R buttons all over the place. If the 3DS turns out to be even less durable than the DS/i, replacement systems for users just wanting to play their old DS games could also be the PS2 of the handheld world, so to speak.

that's great, but this is a thread for 'least favorites', not 'favorites'. you're as entitled to your opinion for least favorite franchises as everyone else here is, y'know. :3
