Don't like the snow? You can make a bookmark with the following text instead of a url: javascript:snowStorm.toggleSnow(). Clicking it will toggle the snow on and off.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Bring out your Games! (DS, DSi, DSi XL)

So how about a thread of what games everyone will be bringing for their DS, DSi, and DSi XL (of course PSP, GBA, GB, etc etc can post too).

So we get stiff once in a while. So we have a little fun. What’s wrong with that? This is a free country, isn’t it? I can take my panda any place I want to. And if I wanna buy it a drink, that’s my business.

    I plan on picking it up for exactly that reason. But I will log some practice hours in the meantime as well.

    I bought mario kart when I went to East but I only found a game on the list about 3 times. I was never able to actually connect to them though ;(

    Don't buy Mario Kart just for PAX - there will almost always be download games for people who don't have it. And I remember seeing a ton of crazy Japan-only or other interesting games at PAX that I would rather try out than play a given like MK.

    I'm definitely bringing Mario Kart and Mario Party DS. Possibly Elite Beat Agents and Tetris.

    I highly recommend bringing The World Ends With You; PAX is a great place to get Mingle XP, and in the Handheld Lounge there are almost always a dozen or so people in Mingle mode.

    I'll bring along Pokémon and TWEWY, and that's probably it.

    If you can't handle me at my Worcestershire, you don't deserve me at my Bestershire.

    I think I'll be picking up a ds specifically for PAX prime in September. I want a DSi, but a DsiL or whatever it is is like 20 dollars more. I dont really like the idea of a bigger ds but, only 20 bucks!

    Definitely bringing Pokemon. Probably Soul Silver, but maybe Diamond if I get around to playing it again (I lent it to a friend and haven't started a new save since, and then got SS).

    That, and The World Ends with You.

    Soul Silver, Mario Kart, Zelda: ST, and even though it's not out yet, Dragon Quest IX should be interesting in multiplayer!

    Had forgotten about TWEWY, though I'm not a completionist, and I suck at evolving my pins anyways :P

    Also had forgotten Puzzle Quest. I haven't played it in forever, but I never did get to play it multiplayer.

    Don't worry about that, dude. Mingle XP made me level up all my pins in the first two hours in line! I had to rush to collect more, just so that the next days line wouldn't feel wasted!

    I recently lost most of my DS games, so all I have right now are Big Bang Mini and SMT Strange Journey, neither of which are multiplayer.

    I'll probably end up getting Contra, Peggle, and maybe Mario Kart again, I dunno though. That'd be the third time I'd be buying Mario Kart DS, lol.

    As for upcoming games, I'll be getting Puzzle Quest 2, Mega Man Zero Collection, Dragon Quest 9, and probably Tetris Party Deluxe just so I can shout TETRIS BATTLE :D

    I'll be bringing a DS for Pictochat, and maybe some games if there's down time. I own some DS games that probably work on wireless multiplayer, like Space Invaders Extreme and Super Dodgeball Brawlers. And if I'm feeling whimsical, I can bring the DS games that I own which show how MANLY my interests are: Princess Debut, Rhapsody, and Super Princess Peach.

    Jeremy "Toastyfrog" recommended bringing Dragon Quest 9 to PAX, since the English version is currently slated for release in June 2010. I'm a DQ fanboy, so I'll bring it, unless it's a major letdown.

    Do you enjoy Super Princess Peach? My wife was asking about getting it, but as it happens, the game is now out of print, and goes for minimum $30 used online. Wasn't sure if it was worth it, although I do like to have rare or out of print things.

    I played a demo of SPP once. It was okay, but pretty easy. It was basically just a gimmicky platformer, kind of like Henry Hatsworth, but HH is on all counts a much better game. That said I've never played the full game so what do I know.

    It's a fun platformer, but EXTREMELY easy.

    Sad day lol I think I am one of the only people that is bringing my gameboy advance (sp). So old it still uses link cables (which I have still!) Or am I just missing something somewhere that there are others like me who have not upgraded their handheld?

    I should go.

    In case anyone loves cheap games, my local FYE store was having a crazy bin clearance. Dug through and got Retro Game Challenge and Clubhouse Games for $9.99 each. Picked up a few other cheap games and the register even spat out a $10 mail in rebate, so I'd say go check it out. Go stock up on DS games before PAX, we're under 100 days here people!

    Although everyone uses DS now, it's ironic that there is actually too many people to get a good wireless connection at PAX. Wired multiplayer would probably be easier in the lines!

    There's only a problem with local WiFi when a few thousand people try to connect to Pictochat together as they try to break the DS record.

    I dunno, Phantasy Star Portable? I was hoping PSP2 would be out by PAX this year, but it looks like it'll be out almost a month after PAX is over. Curse you, Sega.

    Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker, with its Coop and Vs. play, will probably be a big hit for PSPers this year.
