Encyclopedia_b is still being judged by the masses


Default just bought a DS:Lite

just got my daughter a DS lite from LIK-SANG for her birthday (okay ... its about 1/2 month after ... but got tired of waiting for us release)

very sweet device ... lol ... everything is in japanese or something ... dnloaded the instruction manual in english ... changed the default language settings

questions are:

1) i was in costco the other day and saw some type of memory/brain game ... anyone have any thoughts/experiences with this? recommend/walk-away?
2) got chronicles of narnia - used: seems very very similar to the LOTHR game for the advance
3) any must have suggestions? i was planning on getting NINogs for her.

thanks in advance!

Hey man gg on the purchase and I hope your daughter enjoys it, especially since there is an assload of worthwhile games around.

1) The game your referring to is Brain Age, and although I haven't had much chance to sit down w/ it my brother played it constantly for a few days. From what he's said about it I would give it a recommendation although theres a few titles I would consider before that.

I think that your deadon with Nintendogs, as that will proly be right up her alley. I would also look into Animal Crossing and Mario Kart as they are both pretty neat but I think you need to be able to go online to really get your monies out of them. My current favourite for that little beast is Tetris, as there really is nothing that compares to pwning some guy in England in one of the most classic puzzlers of all time

Brain Age is great. It's a series of mental excercises and puzzles designed to make you smarter while having fun. It's fun and addictive. LOTS of Sudoku puzzles.

If you want, you can visit a best buy or gamestop or something and download a demo of Brain Age straight to the DS.

For $20, it's worth picking up. Haven't done so myself yet, but I've been broke.

And yes, Tetris DS online ****ing pwns.

No chatting actually happens in these games. WFC is purely a matchmaking service. Metroid Prime Hunters supports chating in the lobby, but only if you're on each others friends list, and only in the lobby, not in the game.

When you buy a WFC game and choose the WFC option, you'll get the setup which will help you choose an access point. You don't have to go to a McDonalds or something.

release date

Is there an exact date of the release of the DS lite in the US. I have searched some retail sites and turned up nothing.

Do yourself a favor Encyclopedia, and don't buy from Gamestop or EB or whatever. Tetris is 29.99 at WalMart and BestBuy.

I think if the DS Lite was launching in June, we'd have heard a lot more about it. Supposedly the release date gets announced on the 5th though.

I've stopped going in to game specialty stores altogether. At least if I go to WalMart I'm not pestered to pre-order something fifty times.

Please, share! I feel like I'm missing out now.

Looks like the possible release date is June 11 if this link http://ds.advancedmn.com/article.php?artid=3633 is accurate.

Which means a UK release will be a lot later. Not that I care now as a shop reasonably near me got a few in on import and me and a mate just picked one up each.

Brain Age is pretty good, I've managed to get my brain age down to 20. Though thats probably due to the fact that you have the option of cherry picking the three tests that your best at, rather than letting it choose three random ones.
