I don't see what the problem is. I'm planning to get this one, it reinds me a lot of the old DS and that was my favorite one because of the size. Sure Nintendo is going backwards with the whole handheld thing, but so what? I like it, I plan on getting this with M&L3, Phantom Hourglass, and Spirit Tracks when it is released.

I was really disappointed when the DSi came out, last year in Japan, I mean, it's not new! Updated firmware? Cute distractions? It's not worth dropping any sort of money on. And now this giant-ass 'handheld'... excuse me, small-ass laptop is their revolution?
I remember the jump from GB to GBA was HUGE and GBA SP to DS was fantastic-- but what have they got for us today?

A bigger one.

I'd love a small DS, that would be so freaking cool.

Yeah well Nintendo is basically making this shit because it's a huge money maker. Kids are going to buy the next one regardless. Even though it is simply for people who can't play well with the other one, kids are going to NEED this.
Nintendo are sneaky bastards when it comes to money.


Yeah, whatever.

It doesn't look like something I would be interested in, but I don't care much about a DS either. Anyway, I guess it's likely that this is becoming an epic fail. I doubt the group of old people/poor eye-sighted who are actually prepared to pay money for that thing is that big. People who already have a DS don't need one and people who don't care about a DS (like me) aren't gonna buy it anyway.

But we'll see.

Of course you can!

Started replaying Paper Mario: Thousand Year Door, but with Koops as my main. First it was Vivian once I got her/him (I just love that Shadow Siren), then with Goombella. Thought it would only be fair to play with the weakest as my main, just to get it a little more challenging as well. Oh, and I called my Yoshi a racial name. Whenever they mention him, I crack up :3

I kind of doubt it will sell all that well. After all, it's only been so long since they introduced the Dsi in the first place, and not only that but the market for people with big hands and poor eyesight probably isn't that great with videogames (rather not make that eyesight any worse amirite?)

Plus, the price of the original DSi will probably go down a bit, along with the DS lite. Basically I think I will totally pass up a DSiXL (quite the acronym) in favor of getting an earlier version cheaper.

I'm still playing Final Fantasy 6 for the GBA. I'm getting close to the end, but I still got some characters and magicite to obtain. I must say I liked the first half of the game more. Running around the globe regathering your party is a bit lame and puts the story at a pretty low pace. But for the rest I love the game so far.

Recently bought Madworld from my local Gamestop to see if I was allowed to buy M rated game with no ID for Modern Warfare 2. (I was asked for one last time) I got the game, and it's surprisingly fun. The music is badass, I love the art style, and it's gruesome. Easily worth the 17 dollars.

Exactly.

Well, maybe not now, but back when it released in 1990, it was hot shit. It was designed especially for Americans, and had a very Zelda-esque feel to it. It was so popular that it even got a sequel in 1994, but then went into the abyss of obscurity. Lucky it was released on the Virtual Console though.

I wish Nintendo would bring it back.

Well 1990 is a long time ago. You gotta be at least like 30 years old by now to have experienced the time when that game was popular. I don't think the group of gamers of 30+ that have played that game is that big, so perhaps they have doubts that it will ever get popular again.

Otherwise, maybe the group of creators fell apart over the years or something like that.

1994 is slightly shorter, and what about Kid Icarus? That had just one game and was released in like 88'!

Never played it and I only know Pit from Brawl. I heard a lot of positive stories about the original game though.

I'm working on Link to the Past.

Again.

The last time I played, the SNES crashed and erased all my data, so I've had to start over. But it's worth it.

Are you serious? You need to try it. It is well worth being placed among NES classics like Metroid, Zelda and Mario. It seriously is a great game. It's probably like the best mix of genres I've ever seen (it has platforming, exploration, shooting parts, and all kinds of other shit).

I strongly reccommend that you try and find it some way or another, be it Virtual Console, pawn shops, whatever.

Alright if you say so. I'll see if I can find it once I'm done playing Final Fantasy 6. Could still take a while though, since I've been playing for weeks and I am not making much progress at the moment.

Word to the wise: THIS GAME IS HARD AS BALLS. The first level is pretty difficult, and if you get it on the VC, the code system is completely neutered.

I don't think anyone's tried Zelda Spirit Tracks, but I'd say that if you don't want to wait you'd go with NSMB considering it's coming out sooner (I believe). But if you want Spirit Tracks more, I'd say that you should try PHG first just to get a feel for the controls and whether you like them.

NSMB would probably cost more than just Spirit Tracks, but less than Spirit Tracks and Phantom Hourglass. Not only that but they're all great games (With the exception of Spirit Tracks which I haven't played, but it's probably going to be alright in the end).
