nintendo dsnintendo ds

Bored during school vacation? Come to the first every DS Fest at the Downtown Library Multipurpose room on December 26, 27, and 28 from 5-8 PM. Bring your Nintendo DS and any game you want to play like Star Fox Command, Advance Wars DS, New Super Mario Bros, or Big Brain Academy for an impromptu tournament among friends. Eight gaming stations and DDR will also be set up for drop-in open play.

Link this with the AADL-GT tag, please. I hope to come but I'm not sure I can make it.

ELI- Is there any way I could bring my DDR soft pads, I hate the metal ones...?


Go for it, they have the metal ones for durability issues. You'd just have to switch the pads in and out.


nexgenwars.com
I guess I will...


wait wasnt there one jan 2 and 3rd???


Hah, Matt, I'm at Ready Steady GO for Hard mode in Osu! Tatake! Ouendon! Better catch up.

I just beat it on normal, I guess I didn't need your help.


Star fox coommand control system is driving me crazy. The storyline is cool and i like the Turn based element. Thanks for recomending it eli

I actually didn't like SF:C that much...


I was joking about Bad Driver being Jewish...


8 hours til christmas
shabouygan!!


Pwnerer, if you're going to tell jokes, you have to tailor them for your audience, and jokes about religion (in Ann Arbor, anyways) are usually considerd in bad taste. Not a slam, just letting you know to be a tad careful how you joke.

Also, Merry Christmas to everybody who celebrates it. Meh, it's close enough, I'll say it now.

Plus half the people know that Bad driver is Christian because he missed tournaments for church activities.


im getting a wii but my parents couldnt find one so im getting it in 2 days
shabouygan!!


nexgenwars.com
Lucky you, my parents make a point of never buying game systems for me...


Yay, notable things I got were...Lots of beef jerkey, South Park seasons 3&5, and lighter fluid. Sadly I didnt get the laser sights for my airsoft gun, but I'm going to buy it online anyways.

It's supposed to be for 6th grade and up, but I think that Eli might allow younger people with their parents' consent.

I got Far Cry Vengeance- Graphics=ForTheLoss, but gameplay=ForTheWin


i got a silver 4 GB ipod nano, yay, and i finally got LOZ:TP, ive just beaten forest temple, it is amazingly sweet.


nexgenwars.com
Forest temple= meh
Desert temple= yay!

Edit:
What games are people bringing????


Wait, you're already at the Desert Temple!? Have you been playing 24 hours straight or something?!

(Actually, I could understand that)

Do you maybe mean the Death Mountain one?

Also, I'm planning on bringing Star Fox Command, Mario Kart DS, Metroid Prime Hunters, Advance Wars DS, and Tetris DS. So yeah. Bring those. Or something.

You slackers. Nemo and I finished twilight princess two weeks ago. The desert temple (Arbiter's Grounds) is the 4th of 9 dungeons, although there are several mini-dungeons scattered around, some of which are pretty big, but none of which have multiple levels.


so i can take my 9 yr old brother to open play right? my parents are dropping us off and picking us up

I'm at that one right now.

BTW, Eli, Spoilers FTL :P

I think, after my stuff for my new iPod finishes downloading, I'm going to finish those Arbiter's Grounds, and I'll have them beaten by the time I get there tonight.

Also, one other thing, what sidequests have you finished? Cause it's all well and good to have finished the main game, but any Zelda player worth his salt goes to get all the pieces of heart, all the golden bugs, all the Poe Souls, etc.

You all are addicts
ADDICTS!!!!!!

I have restrictions on how much I play...1 hour per day....so I can't play continuously for ever and ever....

EDIT:
I'm in charge because I hold the laptop with tournament software on it...


Dude, laptop = nothing. Pencil and paper works just fine for running a tournament.

I might play some MKDS =)


nexgenwars.com
No...laptop also has all NDS ROMs


Ooooo

true .


nexgenwars.com
so...everybody better show up, eh?


Doh! Sorry, I didn't think that number of dungeons was a spoiler. Heck, I think Miyamoto mentioned it at a press conference. I couldn't let that 10-12 figure go by unchallenged.

9-year olds are welcome at the open plays, so long as your parents don't mind if he plays SSB.


You still didn't answer my question, Eli. How many of the sidequests did you do? I'm making a point to go through and get all the Golden Bugs and Poe Souls, and trying my hardest to not use an FAQ or a Strategy Guide. I bought the Startegy Guide, but it's still in it's plastic wrapping. I'm trying to see how long I can go without opening it.

Also, fun fact. I have played exactly 24 hours and 1 minute of Twilight Princess so far.

so does the "its alright for him to play as long as your parents allow it" apply for the tournaments also?

I pwn'd everyone at Tetris yesterday...anyone want a rematch?

EDIT:
New clan- J.F.K.

The Just For Kicks clan!!!!

I am now recruiting


I'm in for a tetris rematch... you were pretty unstoppable though.

We did many of the side quests, but not all... I think we're only missing 3 bugs, but at least 20 Poes and probably 10 pieces of heart. We still want to go back and finish more stuff, but we've been busy with Monkey Ball and we just got Elebits.

As for your brother, swordmaster, he can come to the tournaments, but he cannot compete unless he's in the right age range for the tournament.

That knight is tough, you won't beat him with only 3 hearts, but why don't you just fill up with soup from the yeti's pot? It's unlimited, so you can fill up your hearts and take a few bottles with you.

Thanks for the idea, Eli!

So, I was wondering- next year could I be a "techie" for the AADL-GT?


Hey guys, I got some really cool information but I'm not sure because it might ruin the game, even make you cry.

Limabean-
1. Go into the Wii message board
2. Click the address book looking thing (I think)
3. Click on an empty slot
4. The rest is self-explanatory

My Wii code is:
2293 5051 6765 8622


According to Bulbapedia, there is a 1 in 251 chance that you'll get Celebi in a Pokéball after everything's been unlocked. I actually learned this this week during our pokémania tournament series; there was one girl who had 3 of them.


Man i missed the DS fest. I thought there was one on the second and third of January. I tried playing at a Macdonalds and it didnt work it could have just not been a hot spot but is there anything special i have to do to log in online?


to swain212, those numbers are out of date, those are on my backup memory card that i lent you, i just recently played my 4500th vs match


ok


thnx mat ill add yours
shabouygan!!


Bad Driver, there is indeed another DS Fest at Pittsfield Branch 2/2 and 2/3 from 1-4 PM. This one won't have gamecube open play, so people might actually play their DS. I won't be there, but Eric will be there with one of my DS's. (Yes, there are four in our household. =) Hope you guys can all make it... the Tetris Match we had last week was pretty cool, and the more the merrier.


ok sweet hopefully i can go. Are all the libraries wireless hot spots? because i tried playing my DS at the northeast branch and it didnt work.
FJW and Mike S. you guys share a memory card?


yea, and we share ssbm, mike lives down the street

first post of the new year!!!! Post 9797!!!!


Oh ok
i think me and my bro had like 100 hours or something like that. probally are most played GC game


nexgenwars.com
To answer the "hotspot" question- any wireless network that is more or less unencrypted can be accessed by the DS.

Limabean- I need your code, too!


we share smash, but we have seperate memory cards with the same data, except his is my backup one that is more out of date


NE is the only branch without wireless; if you register your DS with our network, you can use it at Malletts, Pitts, West, or Downtown. Because the DS doesn't really have a web browser, you need to register it manually to use it at the library. Check out this post from about a year ago for detailed instructions on how to get your DS registered. The catch is basically that you need to try to connect at any wireless-enabled library branch first so that your device will be known to the network. If you go to DS fest next week at pitts, Eric can also help you get registered.


I like how my library is the only one without wireless. Thank you though hopefully eric can help me set it up if i can make it to the DS fest.


nexgenwars.com
I'm sure that if you walk around long enough, you're bound to find a wireless signal somewhere...


matt my dad is watching the rose bowl right now but i should be able to get it for you later
shabouygan!!


nexgenwars.com
Okay, thanks...

Anyone going to the DS tourney tomorrow?

Please come, I need someone to pwn at tetris


unfortanetly i cant make it tommorow but i should be there wenesday


Who is at the DS fest?


matt how do i get my wii code,
p.s. im doing this from my wii!11


arbiter's grounds=sweetest dungeon,

lol, the spinner rocks


ok, so i was googling myself, and i found my name in a post way back on August 30th, 2005. the one about eli going to PAX and surviving, Sravan (TheKoolAidGuy) made a comment, and he mentioned my name (michael song), that was the first time i was mentioned on AADL-GT, but it wasnt going to be my last

lol

just wanted to say that


Wow why did he metion you? Hopefully i will be there tommorow who was there 2day?


you were in that post, too, it was a tourney like a year ago that me and mike s went to, we only played smash, and i got to the first round in each one, then i was eliminated.

the match sravan was talking about was him, me, tp2, and bad driver, and he was like, oh in that match with michael song and you two (referring to the savage bros) then blah blah blah

here it is, directly quoted, sravan and i are friends, and he might have been in our clan this year, if he had actually come to the tournies, but he did sub for us at the GRANDS

"lol bad driver u and tp2 teamed up on me in the final ssbm match and i STILL beat u guys. yea i hate the noise makers too they should stop that. and in the match at Onett where i played u 2 and michael song but he got out he was young link i killed both of u with smash attacks and we were not close in damage we each had 1 life i had like 124% and u 2 had probably 50%. the person who i teamed up with is my friend and i got 2nd in that match anyway. the whole PAX thing sounded cool especially this zig guy in soul caliber 2 did he use the guy with the big sword cuz i heard he was really cheap. do u know who won the halo 2 tournament and their gamertag online so i can look them up to see their skill level compared to me. in july leinad asked me to team up with him and i said ok and we finished the match 1 and 2(i was 1st with 2 lives left yippee) and he had to play me again and he didnt want to team up so he got 3rd just like ur brother in icicle mountain BTW that stage should be banned. eli i just wanted to get other people's opinions about which system i should get and i DO want ssbm2 for the revolution cuz i belive it has online play. i just got back from my first day and i was sleeping for about 3 hours once i got back and i had to help all these new kids who didnt have a clue what they were doing. bad driver if it offends u i wont do it again promise but i will do it i there is someone in my clan who is in the match like galen or joe. black shark and i are working on a diabolical plan to annoy the noise makers like they did to us.
muahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha"


Hopefully Sravan can come to season 4 hes a good guy. How many people were there yesterday? Most likely i will be there today. See you there if you show up.


nexgenwars.com
Yesterday, there were 4 "real" people from the AADL-GT- myself, EBD, Ian (Don't know his nickname), and Eric.


where is it? Pittsfield branch right


yeah me and EBD were the only people from the GT there. I enjoyed the DS fest and thank you very much eric and Mike for helping me with several things :). Also i thought the noise machine/bros and co where bad well i dont think that anymore after all those little kids yelling and screaming when anything happened to them and than there was the kid who kept yelling for his sushi. Well again thank you Eric for helping me get online with my DS.


guess who's bizzack??! I look forward to pwning all of you next season! And being able to compete with out the announcers flaming on me! Also congrats to jelly doughnut! and John, the two time t shirt winner!


its friedjellywalnut you mofo


Uh, Joe, I don't know what you're talking about, but the fact that you came to the first tournament and then disappeared is just an invitation for more flaming by the announcers. That, and the fact that you're Joe Smolarski.

He's been here since the beginning, he dominated several of the monthly tournaments back in Season 1 (when we just had Mario Kart), until TurtlePerson2 showed up and started to win everything that wasn't nailed down.

Those were the days :D

Won my first two Singles Melee competitions, don't think I've placed since then...


awww NOOOO i thought tom wasn't commentating anymore cuz i didnt see him posting anything lately!! yeah im like michael jordan: im old, came back from retirement, and am not as good as i was when i was young b4 i retired. and everyone knows me. And even though tom and dan flame on me in the commentary box, they know that were all part of the same family: the aadl gt family. Also I like the hall of fame idea.


sorry double post


Sice I got back my FF7 from Ian, I began to play it like crazy. I've already gotten to the point where Aerith dies. :( Anyways, I'm trying to make a new topic because I read everyone's posts and there is no current topic. So I ask you all: What's your favorite PS1 RPG and your most emotional point in the game?

To my fellow clanmates: If by your permission, I would like yo "remix" or remake the VMC logo. My plan is to make it look better. I also plan to remake my own RED symbol. Since my clan no longer exists, it's my own personal symbol now.

Now now, Bad Driver. It's not "yeah Me and EBD...", it's "Yeah, EBD and I." Watch your English.

Sorry, why are you limiting it to PS1 RPGs. My favorite PS1 RPG is FFVII because it's the only PS1 RPG I've played. My favorite RPG has to be FFIV. Then after that it's followed by FFVII and Earthbound (although I haven't played very much of it). Although now that I acquired some old RPGs that might change. I still need to get Super Mario RPG which might be one of my main justifications in getting a Wii.

You can make a new logo if you want just make it look good.

First gaming system = GameCube :-(


Don't buy a Wii just for Super Mario RPG, Duck; you can borrow my cartridge indefinitely, if you'd like.

Truly great game...
