I've been playing online matches on and off for a while now, I've added some rivals and now would like to add some friends. I think it would be cool to play against other people from MR. Anyway my Friend Code is in my signature. Please post so I can add you.

My DS will eventually (supposed to be yesterday, but maybe today... damn FedEx and their complete lack of competence from the drivers up to the CEO) get here, and I'll post mine. I am going to see about starting a MR DS tournament for both Metroid and MK, if the large group of people in the MK thread are still playing.

Anyways, just wanted to let you know that I at least have plans for a MR Metroid group. :)

Not long till my Metroid arrives :)

I swear. I'd play this if the DS didn't have a backlight. I've become addicted to HL2 and Quake 3 deathmatches over the past few weeks. If I can take my addiction out and about then woo!

Heh, looks like you're the only one with Metroid on MR! FedEx claims to have left my DS at my apartment's office today, but I will find out if they are full of crap (again) in an hour or so. I've got Metroid already (I expected the DS to get here Friday, but, well, see my last post) so I will hopefully post back here later this evening.

Ok, My DS came, code is 1589 8181 1958. Sadly the place I bought it from sent Mario 64 and not Mario Kart like they were supposed to, so this is my only WiFi game.

I just got done playing through the first level and my hands are killing me! My left hand has a cramp in it and my right elbow is sore from the awkward angle I have to put it in to work the touch screen. A large stylus would probably help, so I'll look in to that... but, man, this will definately keep me from playing to much. Back to Nintendogs, I guess!

Go to www.nintendowifi.com and check your router against the list of approved routers. If it's not on there you can set up your Airport card to share the connection with your DS, if it's getting an internet connection via the ethernet port.

My Lite is going to be here in 3 hours, and I can't wait. I already have Metroid waiting, and I'll post up my friend code and add you guys tonight. The only thing that I can kill in Halo is myself with the rocket launcher, so I'm going to need some practice at Metroid (and all FPS in general), but it ought to be fun.

Cheers

I'm the same way -- I'm really bad at FPS, but it's still a blast to play online.

mrgreen4242
Mar 29, 2006, 03:56 PM
I'm actually usually pretty good at FPS games, when the maps are simple/open. I tend to get lost in the more maze like maps. But I find that MP:H is a different skillset than other FPS games, with the firing finger on the "other" hand among the differences. It will take awhile to get any good at it all.

I lost my first "random" matchup 7 to -3 last night. :p Still fun, though!

So is anyone else suffering form massive hand cramps playing Metroid? My left hand ACHES after 15 or 20 minutes from having to squish up to get the D Pad and the L button at the same time and hold most of the weight of the system...

Any tips for how to hold the DS to play this better? I'm starting to feel like the DS is the new Virtual Boy (from an ergonomic standpoint). Maybe games should be D-Pad/Buttons OR touchpad only, not a combination of both?

Oh, and we need a scheduled time to all be on. :p

Uggghhh...my lite finally came today; it looks awesome, but it has 2 very noticeable stuck pixels! I'm going to send it back for a replacement, but that just means more time with a DS to play.

Anyone have any tips to un-stick pixels. I've tried gently rubbing the screen with no luck. I'd love to just fix this thing instead of exchanging it.

Cheers

I have tons of DS games, some of which are not finished and most the ones that are I can still replay (and no time to play them), so I really *shouldn't* buy this game . . . but this and new new Mario (and now Zelda) I have been wanting forever.

What do people think? Is this game good? Is it worth getting as the one fps for my DS? (trying to get one good game from each category and that's it, at least until I get super bored)

Yes. I like FPS's, but they aren't my games of choice by any means (I'm an adventure gamer :D). Anyways, so far the single player mode is fun... It's not so hard I get frustrated, but hard enough that I can't walk through levels on the first go. The early part of the game has been a nice mix of one-on-one battling, swarms of smaller enemies, and exploration/puzzle/platforming.

The mutliplayer seems pretty fun, but I'm having trouble getting matches going on WiFi (not any friends online, and then it just looks and looks and looks for rivals for random matchups). I think it will be more fun as more people get the game (especially here on MR) and matches are easier to find. I played against bots last night, and that was cool, but I other than learning the multiplayer maps, there's not much point in that (as in you might as well be playing the single player mode).

Once we get up to 8 or so people with posted friend codes I will try and compile them all and start up a little league/tournament group with a schedule, so that might help.

My only MP:H complaint is that it seems that there is no way to save the game in the middle of a level, which is decidedly inconvenient for a portable game. It only saves when it wants to, in other words. You could trade in a couple completed or not-going-to-complete games at a used game shop and snag this one for 'free'. :)

A lot of people seem to be having the same problem. Personally I haven't: I use the thumb stylus on my left thumb and my fingers hold the bottom of the DS. I use my right hand for moving and shooting.

That sounds like it might be comfortable, but them I feel like you'd be loosing some of the accuracy the stylus provides. I've gotten better at holding more of the DS with my left hand and using the bottom part of my index finger for the "trigger". I've also been playing while 'kicked back' on the couch so that I can use more of my lap to rest the system on. I think that getting a larger, fatter stylus (which they make plenty of for PDAs) will add the last piece to make it actually comfortable.

Mine arrived about an hour or 2 ago. bloody loving it! the single player is pretty brilliant, it's no Prime but it's damn right amazing on a handheld!

*Thinks* So this is the closest we'd get to an N64 Metroid too?

Anyways. soon as my skill improves a bit. Soon as I play through single player some more I'll post my friend code. Doesn't help that I've got an essay to write and hand in today! Love the game though. Never been this into a game since... Windwaker.

Luckily, Nintendo replaces it free of charge for a single stuck pixel.

I wasn't able to un-stick the ones I had, so I walked in to GameStop and got a replacement on the spot.

i don't think you can fix dead pixels : [ they're dead!

If your 1-year warranty hasn't expired, call Nintendo and you can get a replacement IIRC.

i'm always free normally, so anytime would be cool 4 me.
i really want to see how awesome this voice chat thing really is.

we should have like a time where we are all on like 6:00 or something
hopefully today i'll be on the friends room at 6:00 (eastern time), try and join at that time

or if u all think that time is bad, then post a time when u guys would like to be on and time zone (hopefully u already know what a time zone is, if not were screwed)

There are 4 time zones in the continental US: Eastern, Central, Mountain and Western. Eastern is everything from the east coast to parts of Indiana, Central is from Illinois to the Rocky Mountains. Mountain speaks for itself, and Western is California/Washington state, etc. GMT time right now is 4 hours ahead of Eastern time. (ie: if it is 12:01 pm in New York, it is 4:01 pm in England.
