Cool, reminds me of Custom Robo.
Will get it.
Doesn't seems to have Wi-Fi... Does it?
This game actually looks amazingly fun.
looks like fun xD
definitely will get lol
this game looks pretty promising
im gonna try it out
looks like dragon ball Z sort of
If it's published by Nintendo, usually it means it's a good game most of the time.
Looks pretty cool I think I'll try it. Anyone know how many different dinos there are? Also do they evolve like Spectrobes and Pokemon?
Spectrobes plus pokemon...and on the nintendo channel demo (yesterday) I saw some tactics in there too. I wonder how that will be utilized.
My Hype Machine gets one game shorter! Keep 'em coming!
While I wait for this game to load up, I'm hoping it's the mix of mining in World of Warcraft and Pokemon Monster Fights I'm looking for.
Is there DSi content to it? the commercials seem to try to lead me in that direction.
Same here... Hopefully it won't (for those who does not have a DSi aka: me) Hopefully it will (for those who have a DSi)
There is no DSi content.
So...this thing won't make use of WPA networks? Jesus, Nintendo! It's like you're forgetting that the DSi has features that make it worth buying!
Based on a corny Saturday morning cartoon.
Won't even think of downloading..
It is? Are you sure? This is the first I've heard of this.
I'm downloading right now. I'll give it a try but I doubt I'll play much. I'm too busy with Space Bust a Moe and Nynx Quest on Wiiware.
I think he's mistakened it for Dinosaur King although that STARTED OFF as a game and was made into an anime.
Gotten a good score by Famitsu.
Time for my patented Donato's first impressions.
I've played for about 50 minutes, past the prologue and dug up about 15 fossils in the trial dig area.
First impressions: the beginning is almost exactly like Animal Crossing. You are being transported and the pilot/driver guy asks you questions that determine your character. He gets almost frighteningly in depth, too. I've never really thought about whether I like Deinonychus or Velocoraptors more.
The game itself is set up like a VERY well done pseudo-3D Pokemon. If you've played Pokemon, you know the score: you enter a new village, meet the area's resident scientist, get your first dinosaur, etc. Not a groundbreaking story, but the graphics are more than enough to get your attention initially, especially if you are bored by Pokemon's dated look.
The fossil cleaning mini-game is fun. You hit a rock with a hammer until you see bone and then use a drill to clean the rest of the rock off. If you use either tool too long, the fossil damages. As long as you clean 50% of the fossil, you win. Damage takes away your potential amount. As you use the drill, which is harder to damage the fossil with than the hammer, it leaves dust that you must blow away by blowing into the mic. This is the only negative.
Battles play out just like any turn based RPG. Nothing too exciting or different there, but once again the 3D graphics help make this grab your attention just a bit more.
Finally, the actually digging parts. This was what I was most interesting in, being a former WoW Mining Addict who would let whole teams die because I was too busy farming silver veins to tank. Digging is surprisingly like WoW, except you have to hit L or R to have the rocks show up on your sonar. The only negative so far on the digging is I seem to be getting the same head over and over and over again. Not sure if this is because I decided to just keep going back to the trial dig site again and again without a cleaning break or what.
So far, definitely worth a play and might be one of the better games released this year by Nintendo so far!
Can't think of the last Nintendo published but not developed game that really burned me since that awful Wario platformer on the DS.
I'll give it a shot.
