    its so sad,
    I dont even open my DS anymore, not even for playing NES/GENESIS/etc.
    There were times that I couldnt stop from posting here, but these days, I force myself to check new homebrew releases.

    whats wrong?

    erm. hrm. maybe the lack of good games that are coming out have decreased your infatuation with games. or perhaps you have refrained from playing for so long that it is become more of a habit. or you are too lazy. or too busy.
    orr....
    MAYBE you have just been away from GBAtemp so long
    that our game playing madness didnt rub off on you
    so now you are gaming-deprived
    just hang around more, and you'll be better in no time!
    hope you feel better soon!

    Same thing...I think b/c of the limitless game access we now have...we tend not to stay focus long enough for an RPG game or what not. I think you prob have fun playing one game that is competitive such as tetris...or casual Professor Layton. I haven't been playing any RPG games b/c I get bored of it quickly with the access to all those other games. But it may be a different reason for you.

    I thought so too sometimes, but then I played Kirby Canvas Course and those other little Minigame fun games (Chocobo Tales ftw !) and refound my gaming spirit.

    Given that the DS is my Main gaming platform and my wii is currently unused until I may get other games I will focus on online, blockbuster, old backlog (which is HUGE) and rpgs.

    Maybe you should try that aswell.

    BTW: I know you at another forum test [​IMG]

    PS: About the homebrew force thing... trust me... homebrew are most of the times much less appealing than real games because you have to download them, always keep update with the newest version of ONE SINGLE homebrew.

    Homebrew is great but sometimes I'm too lazy to download it [​IMG]

    That explains your absence.

    I also lost some interest in my DS, but I still frequent GBAtemp, as its becoming less and less of a DS/GBA oriented site.

    It's cause there have been no good games out recently. I haven't touched my DS for awhile too. The last game I got was speed racer, which was only average. Luckily, a bunch of good games are coming out this week, so it should make it better.

    dr. tinymonkeyt!
    I want to get some tips from you
    because I just play Phoenix Wright and Apollo Justice
    because my lower screen which is a touch screen sadly broken
    just darker than the upper (it's at about at 2nd light option)
    and it's just so full of scratch at the center because of
    that pet game aarrgh I hate it now
    because it's my second touch screen protector and oh
    I have more games on my card like Final Fantasy CC
    and Professor Layton, and Lameboy, but
    I feel really bored.
    so can you help me? please doctor!

    lol. so what are you asking exactly? what should you do about your screen? well if your ds is still under that 1 year warranty, i suggest you send it to nintendo to get a new one. if not, then buy a touch screen replacement, (from dealextreme or something), take apart your ds. and fix it.
    or if you are asking about games and stuff. theres not a lot of games that dont need the touch. actually most games have the buttons as alternate options. many racing games do not require the touch screen (have you tried out speed racer?). platform games also do not need the touch screen. oh! steel commando is coming out, so maybe that will entertain you for awhile?
    hope that helps and you dont feel as bored!

    Same. I want to try some of the new releases but I'm too busy trolling the forums.

    GBAtemp: I like a lot of the people here so no real chance of losing interest.

    Games: Aside from the new FFCC title (pure multiplayer) I have not put a new game on my DS (other the very occasional test, romhack and bit of homebrew (got to love powder and the various implementations of lone wolf)) for nearly a year (I left just before the US release of Zelda) and quite frankly I am having a whale of a time.
    Granted I spend most of the time playing tetris in one form or another but the occasional blast on picross, rune factory, a platformer or a more involved game can still see me killing hours at a time.
    Pasc was along the right lines here although little games can be anything.

    There are various names like pirates ADD and whatnot but done correctly it can be fantastic (even with the entire xbox back catalogue (psychonauts: play it) and everything the PC has offered since the dawn of (PC) time) I find myself still drawn to my DS.

    Basically if you have not already switch off the TV (most half decent stuff from anywhere in the world appears sooner or later for the grabbing) and get a book and your DS with some games in a genre you like (they do not really have to be elusive gem most seem to search for) and play/read one night/day/morning/weekend/whatever.

    No offense intended but I thought you left already.

    You also seemed a bit suicidal before your absense.

    I know what you are feeling. When my Firecard died, I avoided this forum so I wouldn't get upset about the awesome releases like Mario Party etc.

    I haven't been on this forums for... 3 months? But now I've got CycloDS so I return.

    SkH - But you've got an ill DS so I can't feel your pain. [​IMG]
