    Default Bomberman DS ... anyone pick this up yet?

    I happened to stop into Gamestop today and noticed Bomberman DS was out. picked up the case to see that there is an 8 player multi mode, and you only need one cartridge!!! needless to say i bought it on the spot, because that impressed the pants off me. anyone else snag this title yet? any opinions? i'm about to throw it in the DS here to give it a shot...

    Let me know how it goes. I took my boards last week, and the game didn't get released until after I started clinics, but I wanted to get it soooooo badly. I just needed some Bomberman action, and since my TG-16 isn't around here, I went out and bought the NES classics remake for GBA to satiate myself. (It's still a great game, despite it's simplicity. It aged rather well!)

    The 8 player feature is enough for me to grab this title, plus isn't this going to be one of the first titles that supports the future online features of the DS?
    These cartridges are dirty as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore!

    I picked this up yesterday, and I haven't put it down since, its a great great game.. fun-tastic (wow, did I just say that..lol) seriously, the game is as fun and as adictive as all the previous versions, and the touch screen controls the items you pickup throughout the game, its a great pickup..

    I too bought it because of the 8 player download ability. Now if I can only find others with a DS
    Its fun, but it seems I will beat it with 2 hours of game play, we'll see.
    FYI, this is NOT a N64 port. This is more like an old school bomerman game. I was kinda hoping for a port though

    If you have friends with a DS then bite the bullet and pay $30, you'll be the only one that has to. Its a real blast (pun intended, sorry). Just don't expect a long hard singleplayer game.

    I will be picking this up soon, but man, that cover art is SOOOO FUCKING HORRIBLE. Whoever decided THAT would help the game sell, was wrong.

    As much as I would love to get this, I just can't with the online version just around the corner. People are going on about how Bomberman DS has some sort of dormant online mode, but that's not the case. It's offline only, and a Bomberman DS Online or something is what's coming down the road.

    Gotta save money for that PSP. Fuck the lame-ass games. Fuck Sony. Fuck the hype. I want to play emulators and ROMS on the go. I want to get the system and a decent sized memory stick. I won't spend another penny on it ever again. Well, maybe the Playgear Pocket, but that's it.

    Hehe buy the system and no games. That's a GREAT way to screw Sony!

    Bomberman is awesome! Was playing it at work with my boss. With 6 bots of course. It ruled! Very old-school, which is good, IMO.

    Yeah. My DS is my gaming system. I see the PSP as the pirating emulation system. Hell, I don't even think I'll take it out of the house. With the memory stick based data storage, I can always change what's on it. I can't do that with CDRs and my Dreamcast, and I don't have the tools necessary to softmod my bawks.

    And it's single-cart multiplayer. That's awesome.

    One thing that bothers me about the Bomberman DS is the split screen. I canNOT play a game where the playfield is split in half. Yoshi's Touch and Go made me realize this. But that game wasn't as bad. The Bomberman one looks too annoying IMHO. But I'd have to actually play it. Looks fun, but I'd have preferred a large single screen (i.e. PSP) version.

    BTW, does the touch screen even get used? It doesn't look like it would.

    agreed I would have loved fo this to be on the psp screen, but watching 2 screens just adds to the challenge I suppose. I dont have many friends with a ds....so is this game still worth it for 8 player with bots? are they challenging enough? i might just save my money and go with meteos.

    The inventory system seems to make the single player game a little too easy, but overall, it's still entertaining.

    I'm going to be picking up a copy of this new at Best Buy tonight. Apparently none of the EBgames or GameStop stores around here have new coppies and Best Buy/Circuit City are the only ones left and they're running out of the last copies. Considering it's $15 that's really not a bad deal at all. It's a shame I won't have a DS lite for another week or so when the other colors get released.

    I actually found it at Toys R Us this week for $9.99. I don't know if it's YMMV, but it's worth a shot to check it out at least.

    Well, like I've been saying for the past month, I can't wait to get my hands on a DS lite that's my own. I'm now at 3 games that are ready for play (Bomberman, Bust-A-Move, Worms) and am debating over what game to get as my 4th, which is of course a nice variety. I'm hoping to get my hands on the Trauma Center: Under the Knife and Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney at some point.

    I'm strangly addicted to Metroid Pinball. Its one of those "better grab my DS for my 15 min dump" kinda games. Its gotten more playtime than my NSMB.

    Bomberman is fun if you have friends, otherwise its a short game. Its classic though. But for a game where you can play with up to 8 people and only need one copy and can access every option on the download play, how can you go wrong for the price. Its a must have for 1 outta 8 people!
