    Looks like I'll have the game by tomorrow. Can't wait. If only I lived in New York, I could go to the Nintendo World place and buy it. Should be getting Tetris too. I've always liked battle/vs. where you send blocks to other people. Wonder what the items will do though?

    Got it today! w00t!

    SP is fun and all, but MP is a blast! A tad bit of slowdown when things really heat up with 4 players. Hope to see you guys online soon!

    My friend code is:

    Post your FCs and I'll add them to my list.

    Score!
    [​IMG]

    Waited so long for it, was about to give up. Saw the strat guide on shelves and crapped.
    Did'nt see the game on the shelf so asked if they had it in stock and they said 'Yep"
    Love those moments.
    Was having the same control problems as the demo , but played a few wifi matches and learned them real fast.

    If anyone wants to play me, IM me if I'm not playing on my DS. I'll be happy to play you, but I kind of suck.

    I got it last night and picked up the strategy guide today. I won't be posting my code, though, because I'll need the dongle to get online with it, so there wouldn't be any point in looking for me. Yet. (Probably eventually, though.) Basically I don't have the extra money for the dongle.

    I never got to play First Hunt, so the stylus controls really throw me. Switching over to the dual controls helped a lot. I want to use the stylus control eventually, but so far, when I try all I end up doing is shooting at walls while everything else blows me up and laughs at my crappy ass. Needless to say, the dual controls don't seem quite as frustrating.

    Also, I still can't believe I live in an age where a handheld can pump out decent 3D graphics. I can still remember the handheld Pong and basketball games my brother and I had when we were kids, where your ball was basically an LED light that blinked on and off to show movement.

    I've got it, but I haven't been playing it much yet... got a ways into Adventure mode yesterday, but didn't realize you have to go back to your ship to save, so I have to redo some. Just played my first deathmatch on WiFi with it, it was made fun... brought back memories of Quake 3 Arena in a hurry.

    Just got it but no Wi-Fi connection to play with anyone :( 

    Alas I will just have to kick the crapola out of my co-workers and local friends until I get Wi-Fi
