  1. Mario Kart stage FTW! Also, their Fox model is looking pretty kickass IMO. Damn, can't wait for this one!
  2. Touch Detective's Metacritic score. Wasn't really on my list of games to get soon anyway, but I think I'll give it a try sometime.

    So I just checked out the newest batch of Resistance: Fall of Man vids on IGN. That game is lookin' pretty good.
  4. Here's what IGN had to say about it. Here are the metacritic scores/reviews. I understand it to be touch-centered gameplay. Seems kinda like the battle system is a little boring, but the rest looks fun. Once I get back into playing my DS, I'm probably gonna get it.
  5. That's what I understand as well (Oct 19th). That's what it is, according to Metacritic at least.

    So last night EBGamestop announced (via e-mail if you're on their list, I dunno if they announced it any other way) they'd be taking limited preorders for the PS3. From what I heard, people pretty much immediately started lining up for it so today Gamestop said they had significantly more people than preorders. I kinda feel sorry for the people who waiting in line since like 3 this morning just to be denied a preorder lol.

    Lol, more or less. So, when did the Sony thread become the Wii thread? I noticed there were some new posts in the PS3 thread, and then saw more posts about the Wii than about PS3 . Just a quick comment about a Katamari-type game: it would be enhanced by tilt sensing IMO so it would work fine on either the Wii or the PS3. The thing that worried me originally about the tilt sensor in the PS3 controller was that devs would just tack that on, much like many devs do with DS games and the use of the stylus when they'd work better without it. It's like some developers look at a system's abilities in bulletpoints and try to match their game to all of them, when it doesn't fit with their game. It's bound to happen with some 3rd party efforts, just like it's bound to happen with some 3rd party Wii games.
  8. This was excellent. Great job on the first remix for Metroid Prime 2 on OCR!

    Price drop just on the 20gb model though right? Have they said anything about price drops on the higher-end model?

    Btw, the PS3 is not region-encoded right? I recall hearing this some time ago, just wanted to make sure I remember correctly.
  11. Contact has been delayed until October 10. lol, oops. Damn websites for not always having accurate release dates for me (that's for you, IGN)!
  12. Sorry, double-post. I just realized today that Contact is being released today! So far, critic-wise, it's not doing too well, in fact Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime (also released today) is doing better as of right now. As fun as Rocket Slime sounded, I had kinda assumed Contact would have done better critically. Oh well, I'm still excited for it and once I start having time for my DS again I'm probably gonna get it.
  13. Man, I've been out of the DS loop for a while... I'm really looking forward to getting to play Megaman ZX; it looks amazing and it seems like everyone has been ranting about how great it is! That's a good news, considering how crappy the latest Megaman X games have been. A friend was looking forward to buying ZX this weekend, but I guess he got there too late cuz it was sold out .
  14. Not to take topic away from the DS, but it seems like the on-foot stuff could be more fun if it were implimented into a Starfox for Wii than it was on GC, since you'd be able to use the wiimote for aiming and whatnot. Personally, I think that'd make those parts more fun. The Landmaster on the otherhand, I dunno...it was really clunky to begin with. I didn't like it at all.

    lol, those were pretty funny.

    Yeah, personally I'm waiting on the PS3 till, well, interesting-sounding titles actually come out. To be honest, all their currently-announced launch titles sounds pretty boring.

    lol, did the old ps3 thread die or something?
  18. I haven't played the recent Castlevania games all the way through yet, so I don't really know who this character is...that didn't stop me from laughing when I saw it typed though lol. Yay juvenile sense of humor!
  19. The problem I foresee with using the touch screen for menu commands and battles is toggling between that and town/dungeon/overworld control (I was actually gonna say what you did in my original post, but I decided to just leave it as I quoted above). I know that menu interaction in Contact is done with the touch screen, but doesn't it pretty much use the touch screen for controlling on the map and whatnot as well (ie as primary control in the game)? Maybe I'm just getting this confused with the DS Zelda game (since I know for sure that game is primarily stylus controlled), so if I am mistaken please correct me (I'm sure Phthisis would enlighten me if it doesn't compromise his NDA). For FFIII, I think I would rather simply leave it as a traditionally-controlled game rather than toggle back and forth between touch screen control and traditional control, mainly since I'd rather have traditional controls for the towns/dungeons/overworld for FFIII period (maybe I'll change my mind after I play Phantom Hourglass, but until I experience a game that's all stylus-controlled I can't really understand how well it'd work). If you aren't required to use the face buttons at all even during towns/dungeons/overworld (ie, you use the touch screen to interact with NPCs, items, chests, and anything else you can interact with) but still use the d-pad for moving around, then I'd be all for it.
  20. You can't expect them to change the gameplay, really. What would they do? Add extra b.s. touch screen elements? I get annoyed when the games add extra gameplay elements to a DS game that end up just getting in the way. Just because it's on the DS doesn't mean it HAS to use the touch screen or the mic. When those elements have a real purpose and aren't there just to be gimmicky and they work, then it's great to use them. Given, there are of course ways they could make it workable for FFIII to use everything the DS has to offer for control and not make it a gimmick but I don't mind a traditionally-controlled game either. I'm looking forward to FFIII as well...I enjoyed the oldschool remakes they had for the GBA, even though I never played them back in the day and I'm not an FF fanboy. It looks like with this remake they put even more time and detail into it, so I'll continue looking forward to it. And yes, Phthisis, I am also looking forward to Contact...moreso in fact. It's not a "one or the other" deal . Seems like they're different enough that they're hardly comparable (like Killer7 and XIII; they're both technically cel-shaded shooters but that's really where the similarities end).
  21. I would also recommend WarioWare: Touched!...it's fun, addictive collection of microgames. Doesn't sound all that interesting to a lot of people, until you try it out. Happy DSing, once you procure your DS
  22. Holy b'jesus that was fast! It's only been out for like 5 days, that's pretty crazy it has sold that well already.
  23. I'm kinda curious how the replacement plan works. A friend bought his DS at Best Buy with the plan so when the black DS lites come out he can just replace it straight across. Is it something you can only do once? If you can replace multiple times through the plan, I'd say just do it that way (since you'll receive your replacement immediately instead of waiting a few days for it). Either way, though, maybe NOA should be notified so they're aware of the problem (so they know what percentage has that defect so they can fix it for future waves).
  24. LOL, I forgot that Phthisis is the absolute authority on what EVERYONE's tastes must be for games. No one is attacking Deep Labyrinth, like how you're attacking like everything . Enough with your "no one can see beyond 1st party/Square Enix titles but me, so I must enlighten them!"/persecution complex bullshit. Especially here people are aware of the 3rd party titles, so quit your Atlus crusade already. Doesn't matter who makes a game if it doesn't appeal to someone...if people don't care for Deep Labyrinth, they won't but it. You know what else? It's the same thing for Starfox Command, or any other game for that matter. What you're trying to do is what critics do: tell people to buy games cuz you say so, being the high authority you are Mr. ex-contract game tester (not that a pro game designer [or even a critic for that matter] would be any more of an authority). Lucky for us, there exist DS download stations so we can try out games like DL and SFC before purchasing and decide for ourselves what we like and want to buy. I'm willing to give both a fair try, though they're not even on the list right now and won't be for at least the rest of the calendar year (given all the Wii games I'm getting, plus FFIII and Contact for DS). EDIT: That's a possibility, one that Phthisis should recognize given that he didn't come in late on a project. He should know all about the different builds that testers have to bug, and how vast the differences can be. Of course, he may just not like the game, which is fine since no one said he HAS to like it lol.
