I don't think they can play on a DS Lite, but DSi and up for sure.

if it's Download Play, it can be played on a lite or phat with a DSi hosting. it's Wireless Play that can only be played between DSi systems (because both have to have the same game going at the same time).

I must also comment that I have never seen any console games on Ebay or Gamestop that I wanted to buy that were $8 or less (the cost of the most expensive DSiWare games). Maybe I am in the minority, but I really have enjoyed the DSiWare games that I have downloaded so far. Of course, I'm only a casual gamer and prefer puzzle games which (generally) are not graphic intensive.

Thorium Wars is 1000 points, and i've found/traded for plenty of games that were $10 or less. if you prefer puzzle games that aren't too graphics-intensive, i can see why you'd maybe prefer downloads over cartridges (considering puzzlers on DSiWare are cheap and plentiful), but your experience =/= everyone else's experience, and i know i'm not the only one who can't live her gaming life on puzzlers alone, lol.

Surely Bernd will let you take some time off from working on the Niki 2 quality control. Lord knows he had no problem with the QC folks taking time off from the first one.

I can't understand why anyone in this day and age would prefer retail cartridges.

i can resell a cartridge if i don't like the game or don't plan on playing it again. can't do that with a downloadable game. also, having to switch out games to/from the SD card if i'm running low on system blocks is about as annoying as having to switch out cartridges IMO.

actually, FFIII is not available on the GBA -- it was never released outside Japan before the DS remake.

as for FFIV, i have to say that i liked the remake, 3D graphics or not, because of the Augment system. i specifically did not play FFIV for GBA because i was waiting for the DS remake, so i can't say anything about it in particular, but the ease of customizing your battle options really made the game for me. it's up to you whether you'd rather go for the original on VC (which certainly deserves a playthrough if you've never played it before) or the DS version, though.

i think we've all agreed (except perhaps for Waltz) that it either (a) was lame, or (b) made it funnier for Comedy Central to have censored the 'i think i've learned something today' at the end of the episode. i guess we'll find out next week what they'll respond with, as promised by their statement.

current-gen Nintendo retail games are made available at retail only, and DSiWare is only available via the DSi Shop. anything else is piracy.

@Adam:
(a) thanks for taking me seriously when i was intending to go along with the thread derailment :3
(b) the idea of a 'DSiWare family of strategy games' wasn't really foremost on my mind when i read the topic, because as you said, DSiWare strategy games aren't quite in abundance (yet?). there's not enough for an entire 'family' of their own yet, lol.

A function that allows you to change other people's username.

i know other sites use that to raise money for server fees and whatnot, but it's too easy to abuse, lol.

Wait, so you're saying that I could change CB's name to "poultry-head", and that would be earning money for the site? :D

as i mentioned, too easy to abuse, and the admins would be inundated with requests by people crying to have their names changed back. :3
