are they as good as they look or as gimicky as wiis ?
You don't deserve a DS.
AND A PEN THAT WRITES ON THE BOTTOM ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
What more could you want - apart from any games above the 3-10 age rating, that is?
on wii is ace!
pheonix wright? metroid? oh, forget it, probably too busy failing with that crappy psp analogue "stick"
mario kart and zelda are the shit
say wii's are gimmicky, just because of the new control system. are computers not allowd to evolve?? i own both a ps3 and a wii and to be fair ive had more fun playing my wii
and it was quite a lot of fun to start with but once the novelty of the new controls wore off the games just didn't seem to be that great anymore.
worth buying for:
Zelda: Phantom Hourglass
Final Fantasy III
I could go on and on!
are the kind of thing that make me think YES to DS
They don't even take place in Viridian City or have the majority of the Pokemon that you know.
New characters, towns, Pokemon... same, tired, structure of game.
It's shit, and that would have been my only motivation for buying one.
we were on.
i suppose maybe i'm a traditionalist, when i play games i don't really want to be dancing about my room waving my arms about. if i want to do that then i'll go out and play real sports.
but that game is free and pretty much a demonstration of the controls.
Even if you don't really like the controls, stuff like Mario Galaxy uses movement minimally, and it's just like 64 or something.
For Wario Ware and Advance Wars alone.
Nintendo are just more fun than their rivals.
I'm glad there's a company that has realised that some people don't want to sit in front of the telly for 8 hours at a time playing Assassin's Creed or whatever and want games that can be dipped in and out of.
That said, everything has gone downhill since Operation Wolf.
That was the pinnacle.
looking at my shelf of pc games it's dark violent bloodbath after another. endless concrete bunkers, sewer systems, abandoned science labs where man has tampered with things that should not be that can only be stopped by the application of increasingly large weaponary.
i'm also tired of having to stand analysing the back of boxes in shops like a neurotic dieting middleaged woman trying to work out if a game will blow up my pc or not.
i just dug out my brothers gameboy and found pokemon yellow and tetris, it's like a breath of fresh air. albeit one without backlighting, pretty terrible battery life and a real shortage of games. even gamestation and cashconverters don't stock proper gameboy games anymore, gba and colour is about as old as they go.
It's why I hate attitudes like wrightylew's towards Nintendo. Games are supposed to be fun.
and get a DS with Pokemon Silver.
Just get Pokemon Diamond / Ranger and play them on rotation.
