    Sereously every I go to play something like N+ DS I swear I am sitting through more unskipable load screens then I am playing an average level.

    Also on the GBA when I finally found a copy of Doom, there are like 5 unskilable loading screens!? WTF!?

    N+ has an unstoppable loading screen? I can start playing in about 10 seconds after I boot the game :wtf:

    Hence turning on a DS a while before you plan to play it.

    I agree. This really annoys the crap out of me, especially when I'm just going to the toilet. I want my game to load, I want to play a few minutes of it, I want to get off the toilet. I don't want to sit there tapping my screen like a maniac. N+ does it, and even Bangai-O Spirits has too-long a load time.

    Developers, please stop doing this. We know who develops the game. There's thousands of websites that tell us that information. We don't need to know.

    it used to bug me but ive lost all care now i tend to turn on the ds go get a drink and come back, long game intros annoy me the most especially when they don't have alot to do with the story it just seems like a waste of time for the players and developers.
