I thought it would take a long time for the cards to arrive (I remember the e-mail sent to me said something about it being 6 weeks), but apparently I just got them today. Will upload some pics of it in action in a bit if anyone wants to see :) .

EDIT: Here they are. Unfortunately I don't think they work with the Star Pics feature. I tried it earlier and it wasn't working. An extra card with some miscellaneous info that came with these says they are not compatible with AR Games, and are to be used with Uprising when it comes out.

Sorry about the quality of the other two cards. I didn't realize they were kind of blurry because my nephew kept nudging against me as I was trying to take the pics.

Gah! I just found out that they (apparently) don't work with the AR feature :( . On the back of a card that comes with the set, it says they are only compatible with the Kid Icarus game. Nevertheless, I'll take pics of the card I got and upload them.

I just figured you could actually use them in Star Pics. Otherwise it would kind of defeat the purpose of owning them if you don't even have the game to begin with. I'm sort of outta cash at the moment so it would be weeks or maybe even months before I can get a copy.

Didn't know they came with the game, seeing as I got mine from the Club Nintendo rewards.

Do they arrive in an special envelope/bag like the ones they gave away a GDC/WonderCon?

Sadly, it's just a normal shipping envelope.

this is my very first order ever in my whole life. Do they knock at your door or leave it in a mailbox?

They just put it in your mailbox. I think the only times they ever knock on your door is if it's something that comes in a box. Otherwise, everything goes in the mailbox if it's just inside a small bag or envelope.

    @Jayro, I don't see whats so special about the DS ML, its just a DS lite in a phat shell. At least the phat model had louder speakers, whereas the lite has a much better screen.

  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    They probably said "Hey, why not we combine the two together and make a 'new' DS to sell".
  • Veho @ Veho:
    It's a DS Lite in a slightly bigger DS Lite shell.

    It's not a Nintendo / iQue official product, it's a 3rd party custom.

    Nothing special about it other than it's more comfortable than the Lite

    @SylverReZ if you could find a v5 DS ML you would have the best of both worlds since the v5 units had the same backlight brightness levels as the DS Lite unlockable with flashme
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    but that's a long shot
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    i think only the red mario kart edition phat was v5
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    A woman with no arms and no legs was sitting on a beach. A man comes along and the woman says, "I've never been hugged before." So the man feels bad and hugs her. She says "Well i've also never been kissed before." So he gives her a kiss on the cheek. She says "Well I've also never been fucked before." So the man picks her up, and throws her in the ocean and says "Now you're fucked."

    anyways, we need to re-normalize physical media

    if i didn't want my games to be permanent, then i'd rent them

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Agreed, that why I try to buy all my games on disc, Xbox anyways. Switch games (which I pirate tbh) don't matter much, I stay offline 24/7 anyways.
  • AncientBoi @ AncientBoi:
    I don't pirate them, I Use Them :mellow:. Like I do @BigOnYa 's couch :tpi::evil::rofl2:

  • cearp @ cearp:
    @BakerMan - you can still "own" digital media, arguably easier and better than physical since you can make copies and backups, as much as you like.

    The issue is DRM
  • cearp @ cearp:
    You can buy drm free games / music / ebooks, and if you keep backups of your data (like documents and family photos etc), then you shouldn't lose the game. but with a disk, your toddler could put it in the toaster and there goes your $60

    :rofl2:
  • cearp @ cearp:
    still, I agree physical media is nice to have. just pointing out the issue is drm
  • rqkaiju2 @ rqkaiju2:
    i like physical media because it actually feels like you own it. thats why i plan on burning music to cds
