edited August 2007 in PAX Archive
So, what are the best multiplayer games for the DS? I'm coming to PAX and wanted to know what the best DS games were to bring for maximum playitude. Between me and my friends, I have access to a great deal of DS games, and I could buy a few more if I need to.

    This has been covered in at least two other threads, but off the top of my head: Metroid Prime Pinball, Metroid Prime Hunters, Elite Beat Agents, Mario Kart DS, Starfox Command, Tetris DS, Meteos, Advance Wars Dual Strike, Pokemon Diamond/Pearl, Band Brothers (Import), Ouendan and Ouendan 2 (Import), Jump Superstars and Ultimate Stars (Import).

    These are the major multiplayer games I'll be bringing to PAX.

    I was looking forward to getting my Worms on with Open Warfare 2, but it's been delayed to 9/4. D:

    Trainwreck got the major ones. Don't worry if you don't have them ALL, if you have something on that list you'll be able to play. Last year I played nothing but Meteos, Tetris, and Ouendan.

    Also, needs more Clubhouse Games.

    I know we've been scant on the news regarding handheld tournaments, but rest assured we've got something pretty unique for you guys on that front. We're just waiting for one more component to fall into place before we launch it. Thanks for the patience!

    Multiplayer is really fun. You can do 1v1 or 2v2. You basically play it exactly the same, except when you do good it will cause negative status effects to your opponents (shaking screen, shrunken notes). That's basically all there is to it, now you know how to play!

    Will anyone be against me just bringing my R4DS there? They are legal. I own most of the games. Just don't want to bring a whole bunch of those tiny carts and lose them...

    I'm going to have Pokemon, Mario Kart, Animal Crossing, Bleach 2, EBA

    The word "most" in that sentence means that this is NOT legal. If there is any one game you do not own on that cart, then you are breaking the law. As a developer it's especially a bummer to see you not paying for game software that is pretty cheap to begin with. If you can't afford it, get a job.

    If you have a job, and still don't have the money, then borrow it from somebody or just don't play it. Pretty simple, the only people that deserve to play games are the people who pay for them or rent them through legal means.

    Don't you use your Flash Cart for other things? I mean there's tons of cool homebrew like DSOrganize, MoonShell, and (my favorite) Comic Book DS.

    Hi I'm new. This is my first post (been lurking for awhile, sorry) and also my first PAX. As expected I'm pretty damn excited and I plan to bring my DS.

    I think you guys are overlooking a brand new DS essential that will be very awesome for PAX, Picross DS.

    It has WiFi play and you can share puzzles and have challenge battles. If picto-chat will be filled with dong drawings, then Picross DS will have plenty of original and fun dong puzzles to solve.

    I agree with Moe that the New Super Mario Bros. mini-games are also a fun must have. Another awesome game that is fun to play with everyone is Big Brain Academy 8 player battles.

    Last and certainly not least is Clubhouse Games. Local wifi you can picto-chat AND play the game. That way you can get your dong pictures in while you play cards. It is a win/win where everyone has fun.

    Anyways, I look forward to playing my DS with all you guys.

    The only time I've ever Pictochat'd is with my brother when we first got our DSs. Any other time I've been around other DSs, we've just straight up played games. But Pictochat at PAX will be awesome.

    OK, where is the nearest game store to PAX?

    I plan to stock up on a lot of English games before heading back to Korea, so where is the nearest game store to PAX (that isn't sold out with other PAX attendees buying games)?

    PS. Do those stores know we're coming?

    There is an EB Games in the Westlake Center mall just a few blocks to the west. If you have a rental car, or don't mind taking the bus, hit up our friends down at Pink Godzilla games (just on the south end of Seattle). They carry both English and Japanese games (a lot of us American gamers have Japanese games too). The guys that work there are also really awesome, and they will give you something like a 15% discount if you buy one of their shirts or another piece of clothing (they even have a female thong if you have a lady friend).

    Pink Godzilla is in the exhibit hall. They might have what you want in the store but not at PAX but they might be arrange something for you.

    It's going to be so awesome actually getting to play Daigasso Band Brothers multiplayer. I've had it for a while, and while it's fun by itself, I am reminded of the videos that came out before the DS even launched with a room full of Japanese people with DSs, all playing Band Brothers. I thought to myself, "SO awesome."

    I might need to pick it up. I have played it multiplayer via download play about a dozen times. I can't believe I don't own it, after how much I've played it.

    Edit: and yes, Pink Godzilla has a booth there, and since they are near the store location, they may be able to bring something in for you between days. That being said, if you want something quick, try one of the two methods in my last post.

    You are coming all the way from Korea, huh? That's awesome. Do you know people in the US?
