After all, how long did it take man to finally learn how to fly?

considering the myth of Icarus is from Ancient Greece, i'd have to say at least 1,903 years if we're talking powered flight, lol. sounds like your 3017 prediction would be a bit off, in that case :3

@edhe: yes, I meant DSiWare and DSi-only games. i just edited my post to clarify. in fact, i own Ouendan as well, it's a damn good game :3

something else to note, however, is that Chinese games will not play on another region's DS, but that's due to a limitation of the handheld itself (the kanji necessary for the Chinese language are not installed, probably for memory purposes) and not any true lockout. Chinese DSes will play games from all regions, though, iirc.

If you're talking about DS games, then you are mistaken -- DS games are region-free. in fact, so far as i know, the DSi was the first Nintendo handheld to actually introduce region-locking... i'm pretty sure i read someplace that all prior Nintendo handhelds have been region-free. you can still play DS games from other regions on your DSi, though, if you have one -- it's just DSiWare and DSi-only software that's region-locked.

as for the home consoles, though, Nintendo has been region-locking those since the NES/Famicom days, lol. idk why they chose to region-lock the home consoles and not the handheld ones, lol...

Thats awesome! But that seems like a lot of points. Question, how many stars do you get for a Wii or DS game?

i forget what the ratio is exactly, but they do get a lot more stars than we get coins in the US.

I agree, WaveBoy -- I wouldn't mind seeing half-points given myself. it'd make it much easier when a game is better than one score's description, but not qui~ite as good as that of the score above it, y'know?

lol, your game shops must be nowhere near your stores, then, Waltz... i can be in and out of a GameStop in five minutes with exactly what I wanted and on to the store i actually needed to go to (in the same plaza, no less), and that's only if the store I needed to go to (Wal-Mart or Target or whatev') didn't have that particular game in stock themselves. (I can also swing by the fast-food place next door to it on the way back to my truck, lol.) and perhaps better yet, I don't have to worry about my download being interrupted by crappy internets or my husband messing around with the network and not telling me, lol.

Marzipaz brings up a good point too -- games are getting larger and larger as the generations progress. until handhelds are able to accommodate large files on their own with ease (switching out SD cards or memory sticks? you may as well be using cartridges/discs, y'know) and internet connections are at the speeds required to more easily facilitate my downloading of large game files, I can't say that I'm too interested in games that would have been retail becoming download-only.

and i just love that new-game smell... the sound of crinkling shrink-wrap... the cool, smooth feel of a fresh, crisp manual in my hands. god bless retail games :3

plz to get back to us when you get your degree in psychology, Waltz. i'll probably be able to take your position more seriously then.

That said, I really don't see this discussion going anywhere from here. We're all going to have to agree to disagree on how to raise our kids and whether or not we should be forced to break the nonexistent law to do so in the manner we choose. :3

@TokyoRed: lol, when the 3DS allows me to write and read word documents/.txt files on it straight out the box and when I can link it directly to other computers to transfer documents/files (whether via wired or wireless connection), i'll consider it a handheld computer. until then, it's just a game console. :3

Apparently, the Federation had managed to preserve a cell culture from the Baby that saved Samus while she was on Zebes a second time.

I do believe that is the most offensive thing I've seen you post on these forums yet. A celebrity is just a famous person, but a loved one is someone much more special than that, and what happened that day was far more important to the entire nation than the overdose-induced death of Michael Jackson. How dare you.
