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!
So - last night the most terrible thing ever happened - my DS Lite hinge snapped. Of course, it happened less than 2 weeks from PAX.
I don't want to pay Nintendo to fix it because A.) I believe it will cost $75 and B.) It's signed by Gabe, Tycho and Wil Wheaton from PAXEast2010. I'm thinking about replacing the shell - that way I can keep the original and maybe put the lid in a frame in some way.
Has anybody ever done this? I've been told it's pretty nitpicky work and can easily result in a broken system. Anybody done it? How long did it take?
