I haven't played MP Hunters at all yet. I was looking at some videos for upcoming DS games just awhile ago and man, Wario Ware Touched! looks so awesome. It looks like it utilizes the touch screen perfectly. The mini-games I've seen so far just look so amazing. I can't wait for it.

A review I read said they brought back Duck Hunt but there's supposed to be two versions. One where you get flogged with ducks, and the other where you blow that blasted dog to hell. I want that game NOW. Gotta let out 16 years of frustration on that damn mutt.

Dude, are you serious?! I have ALWAYS wanted to shoot that cursed dog! It always made fun of me whenever I failed to destroy all the ducks in time.

Since we got the good old Drome back, I'll put the last thing I posted on the other forums here.

I'm starting to get a bit miffed at the simulated analog control for the DS. It makes small simple tasks seemingly impossible at times. It can be extremely fustrating on the levels with pits and lava especially. I don't know how many times I died trying to get the 8 red coins on Cool Cool Mountain, and the second Bowser level is a b*tch. I haven't beaten it yet. Is it just me, or do you take A LOT more damage in this game?

I'll do the same. I bought some screens today, the top one is perfect but the one that goes on the touch screen always bubbles and if you try and take it off it just gets worse. Anyone else have this problem? The company is Intec. Makes the picture seem blurred, but the screen amde for the top screen is really good.

Don't buy Intec's. Buy Pelican's. They come with extra stylus's, and don't have as many problems. The thickness is just so you can't scratch the bottom screen. It's not that much of a bother.

Oh ok I will do that if I can find them, thats all I could find so I got them just to make sure I dont scratch it. The top is beautiful which is the main thing. The bottom just looks a little fuzzy sometimes but its alright. As long as it protects it's fine with me. *goes and plays mario again*

On a more overall Nintendo related note. I love playing as Luigi in SM64 DS, so...is it just me, or does anyone think Luigi deserves to have his own REAL game. I'm talking a platformer, or just an adventure game, maybe even an RPG, where he's the main character. Focus on Mr. Green for a bit. Super Luigi 64 DS? A new game staring Luigi on the SM64 engine? Paper Luigi? A story driven RPG about everyones favourite Green plumber? I say it's about time to stop shoving Luigi out of the picture and make him at least semi equal with Mario.

The title Super Mario Bros. referred to the Mario Brothers, not just Mario. They deserve to be equal, and Nintendo needs to give him a real Mario Bros. game.

I could not agree with you more. Unfortunately, being experimental has been too common a theme for Nintendo as far as GC goes. Metroid Prime, Mario Sunshine, Luigi's Mansion...And hell, look at the DS. Nintendo is far too intent on doing stuff that nobody has done before to realse something that safe.

That's true, but even secondary characters like Yoshi and Wario have a bunch of various games that don't follow some kind of gimmick. I mean Peach is getting her own game for Christ sake. That could have just as easily been Luigi.

NBA Rejects EA Offer
By Brian Gregarek on 26th December 2004


According to a story on IGN Sports, the National Basketball Association has rejected the initial offer from gaming giant Electronic Arts that would give the company exclusive rights to the publish games containing the NBA license. The deal, which would presumably be the same as the monumental agreement between EA and the NFL signed last week, would give the publisher exclusive rights to the NBA's players, teams and arenas.

The DS is almost a month and two weeks old now and it's kicking the living sh*t out of the PSP. I think Nintendo has officially won the Japanese market here. Americans tend to be more stupid and fall for hype easier, so it'll be closer over here. Either way, fu*k it. If Nintendo's doing good over there, then they're making the kind of games I want. End of story.

Ooh Ooh, lookie! The Xbox outsold the PS1 for once.

the DS will beat the PSP because it has popular franchises like Mario, Zelda, Pokemon, Metroid, Final Fantasy, Dragon Warrior, Secret of Mana, Lunar, Xenosaga and Castlevania
