    It`s not that bad. DS is not just for games - it can serve for reading, learning, playing music..I am sure that japanese people will like this, too.

    I like what Japan makes. Recently I tried out Nodame Cantabile and it is very good and original. I like many many puzzle games for DS that are available only in Japan, like Slitherlink, Kakuro, Akari, Nurikabe-as part of puzzle series.

    To me, the dumbest game ever on DS is any Pokemon game.

    I understand that you don't like Pokémon (anymore) but you must admit that it's a fantastic RPG. [​IMG]

    How exactly do you play Slitherlink, Kakuro, Akari and Nurikabe?

    I have Slitherlink but do not play because I do not know what to do.

    Well in Slitherlink, you have to put the right amount of lines around the squares. For example, if the square has a 3, there can only be 3 lines touching it (not counting corners). And you have to connect all the lines in one path.

    It's so hard to explain this without sounding retarded.

    In Akari, you have to put the right amount of gold circles around the squares with the numbers. So if it's zero, then no circles can go around it. The circles release bars horizontally and vertically. You have to make sure that there are no circles in another circle's bars, and you have to make sure that every empty spot is either a bar or a circle.

    Hope I explained that well [​IMG]

    There is worse gaming ideas out there what about Ping Pals? A chat program for a handheld which already has a chat program built in. Ok it has a couple of grams but nothing you can't do on Pictochat.

    Wooo didn't know there is a "game" like that.

    I'm gonna try it because I'm so bad at writing chinese characters, my teachers always take me some points because of it :/

    Hey, my daughters actually had fun with ping pals. It was among the first games I got for them when I bought the DS's for them (mainly due to the fact it was only $4.99 so I could easily afford 2 copies [​IMG] ). Never really tried it myself though.

    Well I think this looks like a great educational tool. Writing Japanese always takes me forking HOURS. Any practise would be great... especially considering it looks like you have to draw tiny.

    Something similar for roman letters would probably be good for a lot of children, especially when they are learning cursive. Would save on alot of paper too!

    I have used similar software, but for tablet PC's, when I was volunteering as a classroom helper at the local infant school. Saves a lot of paper and the kids could be given print outs of their work if they did good so they still get a reminder of their work.

    Why is this dumb? It's an educational game, and saves on paper [​IMG]

    And it saves you from harsh critique, because the DS will probably be less demeaning in its comments than a cranky teacher [​IMG]

    I still think ping pals was the worst. It was just a crappy remake of somethign that came free with the DS (Pictochat for those who don't know)
