Re: DS lite Dpad

My DS lite Dpad is somewhat clicky and seems to move around a bit, however I think that could be "normal", though I could be wrong. If it feels sticky you could try to slide a small strip of card in the gaps and see if you can remove any gunge that may have gathered, I've had some success with this ...

Re: Pratty's Trade List

Maybe, although I'm not sure how much to value it as really, also I don't have paypal or anything convenient like that which is why I'd prefer a trade.

Not completely against selling though, I can take a cheque (retro :wink:), just not sure what price to put on it.

Re: Anybody collect DS games?

I just picked up Batman: Brave and the Bold . Will start playing tonight! I read it was good, just a bit short. Though I do think it's probably better suited to the DS than the Wii. I was a bit disappointed that it was a 2.5D platform/beat'em up, it's very retro and pleasantly quirky but it does se...

Re: DS screen protectors?

Hmmm.... I am tempted to give them a try, I think I could give up a little clarity for the piece of mind of not damaging the screen.

If I can get some cheap Hori ones I think it'll be worth giving them a go but avoiding the fake ones out there is a problem.

DS screen protectors?

So I got a used DS Lite a few months back and I had to replace the touch screen because of a scratch, having done this though I am paranoid about damaging the screen. It has a rougher feel to it which I'm told is a more durable screen than previous ones, however it does require a firmer press with t...

Re: Playstation 3 is killing the Games Industry?

Basically developers spend too much (on flashy "Hollywood" presentation) and too often (with unessary sequels), just because they can, which is why they're not seeing the return. It's all very impressive what they've produced, but they have collectivly saturated the market, without enough people abl...

Re: Nintendo's 3DS

I guess this explains why Nintendo are so keen to phase out backwards comparability of cartridges. Why let people buy carts on Ebay for pennies that they won't make any money out of when they can skim more cash out of people for "virtual" copies of the game. Generally I agree with this, Ninty are g...

Re: Nintendo's 3DS

It is looking very tempting indeed but I thinki'll wait and see before jumping right in. I've just got my Ds Lite so I've got plenty of games still to play and discover. The other thing is I wonder how long it'll be before they bring out 3DS Lite and 3DS XL etc, I'd feel a little bit of a mug shelli...

Re: Christmas 2010 - Gaming goodness.....

I have no idea what's coming out. However, after another year of buying tons of games that I haven't even played, I might not bother intentionally getting any games for Christmas. Me too, I was hoping Skyward Sword would be out for Christmas. :( What I might do this year is break out some of those ...

Re: What games/consoles have you bought this week??

You know, if it's been modded to make it NTSC-U instead of NTSC-J, it'd be possible to install a small switch in the back (through one of the holes) and have it switch between JP and US with ease. Very much like the N64 NTSC console mod. http://www.mmmonkey.co.uk/console/nintendo/gc-region.htm Save...
