Well, yeah, I should have figured there would be some people who would take interest. :oops: Anyway...

I mean, sure, I can see the argument for seeing how the Tony Hawk's engine was used on the DS and created into an extensive title, but the fact remains that it's something that we've seen before on prior consoles, and we also figure that the context of skateboarding can only seem to appeal to a limited set of gamer types. That's what seems to worry me most; not how much it pushes itself to have fun or whatever. To most gamer types, it could just look like something created solely for the MTV generation.

First of all, it's vastly different from every previous Tony Hawk game. Second, it's good. Stop coming up with reasons to doubt it.

I know it might be good, but that doesn't stop the fact that I can't play this type of game to save my life. In fact, I can't play sports sims at all unless it's with cars. :?

I would hardly classify the Tony Hawk games as sports "sims".

I just read about a game called Gunpey today it sounds pretty cool. It's a remake of a Wonderswan game and it's being done by the guys at Q Entertainment so it's gotta be good. :D It's a pretty old preview, and there have been movies there for even longer. I'm not sure why I never saw it before.

Meh, Gamespot gave God Hand an 8.0 which is a higher rating than Trauma Center and Mega Man ZX received. Both of those two games are superior.

Perhaps Gamespot just is biased against the DS in general.

Clubhouse Game's missions are bullshit.

I've been able to complete about half of them so far. The rest is absolute bullshit, especially the Word Balloon mission. How the fuck can anyone guess what the word is when the game doesn't even provide a single clue other than how many letters it has? Hundreds of words fall under that "hint," and the game expects players to get 3 words right without messing up 10 times. That said, anything that relies too much on luck is made of fail and lose.

Yeah, pretty much.

3 Strikes in a row?

3 Bullseyes in a row? haha yeah ok.

I got 2 Bullseyes in a row on the first TWO throws, and couldn't do it with the other 8 lol.

Did you do the Billiards ones? Those were easy after a few tries.

I pulled off the 3 Strikes and Bullseye missions. Both become very easy after you play darts and bowling for awhile.

Keep in mind, you're just dragging a stylus, not throwing a dart or a ball. Don't think so much about it.

I got my girl interested in the DS, so I'm getting her the pink one for Christmas. I'm thinking of getting her Super Princess Peach and Nintendogs, as well as a kirby game. Should I get her Canvas Curse, or Squeak Squad? which one would be better for someone relatively new to gaming?

On to the second case in Touch Detectives. It's holding my interest very well.

I'm on the third case in Phoenix Wright 2 and haven't even thought about Touch Detective :P

I wonder if it's worth checking out after though. I'm seeing a lot of mixed reviews on sites, mostly complaining about completely illogical puzzles.

I just finished Part 1 of the first case. The game reminds me of the investigation parts of Phoenix Wright (in that you ask questions to the various characters while traveling around town, picking up clues, etc.) and the adventure/puzzle elements of Trace Memory. So far I haven't had much problem with the puzzle logic, and the writing is very very well done (I expected nothing less from Atlus). Some really humorous dialogue, and on top of that, the game is just so damn CUTE.

I can definitely see adventure game fans liking this.

Fuck. With the Wii coming out, I don't think I can afford FF3, Contact, or any of the other games coming out in November. Fucking Nintendo, making games I want to play for systems I own/want to own.

Maybe it's because those two DS games are reputed to be incredibly short. And Trauma Center is almost too difficult for its own good later on.

God Hand is a Clover game.. so.

This is the reason I haven't bought any single games apart from the Dawn of War + Winter Assault (30€) combo. I've been saving A LOT to get a Wii with everything I want a few DS games, and all the stuff I've missed (like 2 or 3 games) at christmas.

Man, I'm good at planning ahead. Check Bahamut's sig and you'll see I haven't "splurged" :(

Yes, it can't be possible that a Tony Hawk game got a good rating because Tony Hawk games are notorious for being un-fun.

Do I even need to tag this with /sarcasm?

If you think the person or people you're being sarcastic with are incapable of detecting it without a sarcasm tag, then they aren't worth talking to.

sarcasm tags suck.

I'd recommend Canvas Curse for pure fun. For platformer overload, get her NSMB and Squeak Squad too.

Actually, I recommend figuring out if she's a dog person. If she is, Nintendogs is right there.
