    So... we're all familiar with the BSOD on a PC.... but what about on our NDS??


    Have you found any buggy buggy games?


    The inspiration for this post was "Zenses rainforest"...... this game has crashed on me twice.

    Once was one of the first times I played... it went to some weird thing where the top screen was some kind of debugging mode and I could basically scroll through a list of files, and when I selected one it started one of the games.... very bizarre! Then last night... was playing, had a massive high score on the stacking one... and BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP, completely locked up along with high pitched screeching... highscore completely lost!!!


    So, any similar experiences?

    Super Mario 64 DS, there're bunch of bugs when you play as Wario. Then you can also accsee the "debug" screen.(by pressing some buttons but sorry i forget the sequence)

    Trackmania's bugs are infuriating because they aren't consistent. Sometimes you'll fall through the track all together, and other times you'll sink into the track just enough to lose your speed. The desert vehicle seems to be the worst offender.

    I think its L+R+Left+A, release all, Down+B, release all then Select+Start when the game is frozen

    Probably the buggiest game I've played through was Bros. In Arms. You'd get stuck in boxes often, or run into walls and just all sorts of other collision-detection issues. Still had a blast with the game, somehow.

    The buggiest game was definitely the Lego Star Wars II for the NDS. That game is full of glitchy stages, poor AI, and what not, that you have to cheat in order to pass a certain stage because the AI would keep falling into a chasm repeatedly. Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga did much to rectify this hair-brained mistake of a game.

    Homiez Rollerz. But that game is for manly men, so if you beat it, you are the new chuck norris.

    Yeah. It was so bad that the developers had to apologise about it.

    There was that SNK Card game that required a recall since it had a game stopping bug.

    Jesus, I had forgotten all about that horrible, horrible game. Who the fuck puts the horizon line in the gap between the screens? I'll tell you who. The French.

    Out of all the ones I've played, Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin seems like the buggiest one to me. The game freezes either randomly, or when using a certain weapon or when a certain sound is made. There's also this glitch in the cutscene with Death, as in if you skip it you can't beat the game unless you abuse another glitch, which lets you go through walls by continuously suspending and loading your save.

    That seems pretty glitchy to me. =P

    That only applies when you're playing a backup (Except the freeze bug when you skip the death speech). Therefore shouldn't really be included in this list. (There's the money bug in the US version too).

    I'd say these:

    Lego Star Wars 2
    Rayman DS
    Star Wars Force Unleashed

    If I think of more, I'll say later.

    There have been reports of freezing even with a legit copy.

    I guess I'll mention that before I got into DS piracy, I owned a legit new copy of Final Fantasy 3 and the save data erased itself. A message appeared at startup one day and said the save was corrupted and wiped it clean. I was so angry because I just beat the final boss and was attempting to uncover the secrets.
