(Update 5.25.06)

Just for fun I thought I'd add a pole to this thread. It seems we are getting more and more N-Gage fans/collectors and I was just wondering what peoples reasons for collecting this system are. My response will be around page 16 of this thread.

:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: ::::::::::::::::

The list is now in the order the games were released in. It seems like this is the order that collectors would want to see the games listed in so I decided to change it up.

It would appear that this may be it for N-Gage games released on cards. That would make Warhammer 40,000 Glory in Death the last released game for those keeping track. For those who have been collecting all along I guess you're finished and for those that wait for a system to die first let the collecting begin.

I would love to get an ngage but im still not sure,

would you guys recommend getting the ngage or an ngage qd?

Sorry for asking in this topic but it just came to mind and I thought I would.

I would recommend getting the QD since you don't have to take out the battery to change games and don't have to talk into the side of the phone, if you plan on using it as a phone. But if you don't mind taking the battery out or plan on putting all your games on one MMC card and not using it as a phone you might want the original since it had more features. I have the QD and recommend it. I like the shape better too if that matters to you. Also if you're getting it with a phone plan the QD is free.

I personally am very suprised this is still around. I think many gamers were scared they had to get a cell phone service to play the games. I'm waiting for it to die so I can pick it up cheap on clearence. Although with the current amount of collectors and the limited number of retail outlets that sell Ngage stuff I'm doubting this will be a possibility.

Yeah I'm a big fan yet still surprised that Nokia keeps this thing going. The games coming out now are in low print runs so I think they might be harder to find later. The system is here to stay for at least another 2 years at least thats what Nokia is saying. They still have plans for a N-Gage 2.

I think I made a similar list for UK releases a few weeks back...

I know there aren't all that many games so far, and only a few more left to be released...


I have managed to get just over half of them so far. I find they are really hard to get brand new...

My local Comet is the only place around which still sells them, and they want 39.99 each! - It wouldn't be so bad if they had Pathway To Glory, Call Of Duty, or Pocket Kingdoms - But these are the usual common first release titles liek Tomb Raider and Moto GP Etc...

And they wonder why they have about 20 of each title still on the shelves!


I was also pretty proud of getting a sealed Sega Rally on eBay for only 20 BIN!

Why are there hardly any Ngage games on eBay? Especially sealed ones. There is only one seller selling some skanky Australian releases - and they are located in Hong Kong... Hmmm...

27. Tomb Raider


Why does everyone pick on poor old Tomb Raider? I found it to be a great port and quite a fun game. The "auto-run" feature took a little getting used to, but I grew to really like it. I'd much rather play it than Sonic N or Splinter Cell: TSA...

Well I don't know if everyone does after all remember I made up this list based on my own opinions and I think its ok but not that great. Also most games on this list could probably move up or down 1-2 spots so it could very easily be ahead of Sonic N and Red Faction. For me though I really wasn't a big fan of the controls. I did spend some time with it and the more you the more you get used to it. I hated SSX controls at first but finally got used to them as well. Controlls on the N-Gage always seem to always be a little harder to get used to than other handhelds.

I should also mention the only games I don't have are Call of Duty, Operation Shadow, and Puzzle Bobble VS which I based their ranks on what other people have told me. Only 3 more N-Gage games to go until I'm all caught up with the current releases :)

I thought I was the only one mad enough to have a complete N-Gage collection. I bow to you, sir.

I'm providing my rankings here as well. I haven't played A LOT of these games, especially the ones in the bottom 10 which turned me off right away, but I have played them all to some degree.

Our lists are pretty close near the bottom - those games are stinkers. Other major differences are that I rate Elder Scrolls much lower (seems pretty buggy to me, collision detection in battle is atrocious) and my Tomb Radier is much higher (first game I played on an N-Gage and was immediately impressed).

Here ya go:

1 Pocket Kingdom
2 X-Men Legends
3 Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory
4 Colin McRae Rally 2005
5 SSX: Out of Bounds
6 Asphalt Urban GT
7 Ghost Recon Jungle Storm
8 Super Monkey Ball
9 Pathway to Glory
10 King of Fighters
11 Tiger Woods PGA Tour
12 Bomberman
13 Tomb Raider
14 Sims Bustin Out
15 Requiem of Hell
16 Fifa 2005
17 Tony Hawks Pro Skater
18 Crash Nitro Kart
19 Rayman 3
20 Ashen
21 Fifa 2004
22 Splinter Cell: Stealth Action
23 Sonic N
24 Marcel Desailly Pro Soccer
25 Operation Shadow
26 Pandemonium
27 Elder Scrolls: Shadowkey
28 NCAA Football 2004

I WAS very interested in Puzzle Bobble Vs. What's so wrong with it to be listed below Tomb Raider?

The biggest problem is that it's just impossible to properly distinguish the bubble colors, making for lots of bad 'guesses'. I thought at first that it was just my eyesight going on me, but everyone who's played this at my place has the same problem. It's also really sluggish and for no good reason. In my opinion, it's unplayable.

I love my N-Gage to death, but I have a problem - it died on me like a week ago. I really don't understand why either, I bought it from someone on this very site, and it worked fine for about a month, and before you know it the sound died on me and I couldn't get ring tones nor could I hear anything from games. Now it won't even turn on. I went to a Nokia store and they couldn't figure out the issue with the sound, but I've talked to a few people who think the reason it died is because of a broken battery.

Now I treat my games with all the care in the world, so I know for a fact it wasn't me dropping it or anything like that, I just need to know where to go from here, because I don't have a warranty, and I really want to get back into the N-Gage scene. :(

First make sure you download a free copy of Snakes. It's one of the N-Gages best games and it's free. I think $25 isn't that much to pay for a good portble game so I'd say that yes their worth it, but I can see your logic if you bought both. I'd start with Pocket Kingdom since the controls are alot simpler and the game is very addictive.

also stay away from games that got bad reviews chances are they're right the N-Gage has some pretty bad games but still has some great ones.

That's good to hear. I ordered one last week (if FedEx would quit screwing around and actually deliver it I'd be much happier than I am right now). I live pretty far outside the city limits and signal is kind of hit & miss when I'm at home. I hope my N-Gage gets better signal than my current phone.

Got my N-Gage QD yesterday. I'm amazed at how good the phone signal is. All of the places where I had no signal at all on my old phone have good strong signals on my N-Gage. Very impressive IMO for a phone with no external antenna.

Of course the downside to this is that when I'm out on the lake fishing, my wife will probably be able to get ahold of me now. ;)

Reading all these posts I saw a used N-Gage at my local Gamestop tonight so I picked it up along with Pocket Kingdom ($24), NCAA Football ($3), Pandemonium ($3), Rayman 3 ($3), Red faction ($3) only to find out the System does not have the SIM card so it can't be used. -sigh-

04-30-2005, 10:16 PM
From what I've heard Shade: Wrath of Angels was canceled and it being listed on the N-Gage web store is a result of Let's Talk being really lazy on updating the site. I also noticed they still are advertising that $20 off when you buy three games that expired over a month ago.

Hinter Wars however is looking to be a very cool N-Gage title. I don't know when it's supposed to get released though (like most N-Gage titles).

so I thought I'd post my current N-Gage collection picture. Here since collection pictures are fun :) This also gives a visual idea of how small the N-Gage collection is currently. Only two N-Gage titles missing from the photo as of 5/1/05 (Call of Duty and Sega Rally). Roots should come out any day now too but I'll be picking that one up right away. The games are all spread out for the photo but one thing I like about collecting for the N-Gage is their small boxes don't take up much room. My collection normally fits on one side of my desk. Nice and compact.

My Gamestop took the SIM out of a display unit so I could actually use my system, happy day. So far the $3 games I picked up seem to be worth... $3. Red Faction is one ugly piece of gaming - yow! Tony Hawk was pretty good and NCAA Football was kind of fun. Now I got to try Pocket Kingdoms, saving the best for last.

On another note, does anyone have a sacn of the Tony Hawk case artwork? My gamestop did not have the original case for it and the blank case rather sticks out on the shelf.

well that's pretty interesting. intresting enough for me to at least try and order Shade: Wrath of Angels. So I did and when I put it in my cart it said back ordered. Which makes me think it still never got released but I called Let's Talk anyway to see if they ever had it. First off the guy I talked to knew practically nothing. He said they don't have any of the games in stock and that they get them from some where else and that they just sell them. He also seemed to think if the game was listed on the site that I would get it if I ordered it. So I took a chance and ordered it making sure I'd get a refund if they couldn't get me the game. I'm still pretty skeptical that this game is out there but I thought I'd give it shot anyway. I'll let you know if it ever shows up thanks for doing the investigating.

I'm also still hearing rumors that Alien Front got a release somewhere out there. Anyone got any information on that.

Slipdeath
05-02-2005, 08:09 PM
Yeah I also saw the back order which made me think about Sega Rally when it was up on Ebgames.com. I highly doubt that this game was ever in stock on Letstalk.com, but I guess it's worth a try. All I know about Alien Front is that some stores sold there display versions which worked pretty well, don't know if it got an overseas release or not.

Actually I called them and they never charged me. I guess they don't charge you untill they ship the item. I told them they might want to think about removing that title from their web page.

I hope Roots comes out this month. Also that WWE title is supposed to finally come out although I wouldn't mind if they just canceled it I'm not much of a WWE fan. Maybe I'll put that one off like Call of Duty and try and find it for under $10.

I was also thinking that Nokia is still planning a N-Gage 2 in 2006 and I would guess at most they will release maybe 18 more games for the original N-Gage before the next generation N-Gage. If they do that would make the first N-Gage library around 55 games. That would have to be the smallest library of games to see a sequal system. Even if they release 30 games this year which is doubtful it would still be the smallest library to see a sequal system. I really think that the N-Gage will be a very collectible system in the future since it has good games, small library, and its an off beat system. I guess only time will tell but I know I've enjoyed collecting for it so far.

have you played them? Puyo pauses between every drop and Virtua Tennis is just too slow. Its diffuculty is based on not being able to get to the ball. Sonic isn't bad its just not a game that is suited to a vertical screen.

Also N-Gage fans don't forget we have acess to many Series 60 games as well as Java (do a search Cautrize did a nice article on Java games for N-Gage). The puzzle games for N-Gage so far are pretty sub par if you need a puzzle fix I suggest getting Puzzle Drop Mania you can get it at handango.com As well as some top down shooters such as Anglefish and Skyforce.

Add me to the crowd of people who have n-gage's now :P

I'm looking to pick up Pocket Kingdoms soon. How's KOF for it Is Worms out yet? I'm interested in hearing how that is, too.

Picket Kingdoms is great I don't think you will be disapointed. KOF is just above average. Its your only choice for a fighter on the system so if you need a fighter fix I suggest getting it and I don't want to say its bad because its not its just not as great as I wish it was. Worms is great if you have acess to the Arena. I get a little bored playing the one player missions but I'm online in the Arena all the time (same user name in the arena if anyone wants to play).

If you have acess to the Arena (btw there is a way to acess the Arena via Bluetooth and use your computer internet connection so everybody should be able to play online) the best Arena games IMO are:

Pocket Kingdoms
Worms World Party
Pathway to Glory
Colin Mcrae Rally 2005 (just ghost racing but very well suited for a Rally game and the best racer on the N-Gage)

For people just getting started with the N-Gage here are some usefull links.

Nokia Galaxy (if you want to put all your n-gage games on one MMC card this place has most of the n-gage roms for download along with series 60 and java games + much much more. just remember to buy some n-gage games too so it doesn't go away)
http://www.nokiagalaxy.com/

Here is an incredible list of Symbian Series 60 games (this is what the n-gage runs on) lots of screenshots
LINK (http://forums.arena.n-gage.com/nokia/board/message?board.id=2&message.id=14861)

some of the games aren't half bad

games I recommend

Super Drop Mania (better than the currentl lineup of N-Gage puzzle games)
Angelfish (top down space shooter)
Sky Force (top down shooter)
Vector Blaster

Well it looks like this generation N-Gage will be the last to use actual media. If you didn't follow Nokia's E3 coverage you can catch up here http://web.n-gage.com/e3/ Basically they are going to make select Nokia Smartphones capable of downloading and playing N-Gage games. This means a couple of things. For nokia if means that it will widen their customers and keep their foot in the gaming door. For collectors it means they are producing even fewer actuall game cards. If you have a store near you that sells them consider yourself lucky I went from 6 stores to only 2 that carry them and they don't seem to get very many copies of the new games. While Nokia hasn't really comented on the N-Gage 2 yet I would guess if things go well with the N-Gage capable Smartphones they will go download only on the next generation. I think the N-Gage is here to stay but collecting for it might not be.

The e3 announcement really is nothing but good news. It means more support. As long as Nokia still gives me a "gamer's phone" I don't care who else can play the games as long as they're buying them, thus causing more and more to be made. I love my QD!

The N-Gage has thousands of great games! I bought an N-Gage about a month ago at a Gamestop. The clerk asked me why I would want an N-Gage, and I told him that I just wanted something very small that could play Gameboy games. Everybody always brings their keys, wallet, and phone with them... but you rarely have the extra room for a GBA SP, let alone a DS or PSP. Of course, the clerk acted like I was an idiot. Apparently he buys into all of the latest hype, but doesn't actually know what he is selling. The N-Gage can even play ripped music CDs and ripped DVD movies!

But yeah, the N-Gage plays Gameboy, Super Gameboy, and Gameboy Color games, but not Gameboy Advance games. It can also play NES and SNES games too, though the SNES games run really slow, but fast enough for slower paced games such as RPGs (Final Fantasy, Chrono Trigger, etc). The best set of emulators for the N-Gage are here:
http://www.vampent.com/emu.htm

I highly recommend the vBoy emulator, as it is only $10 USA dollars, and it runs every GB, SGB, and GBC game at full speed and resolution. The NES and SNES emulators have to scale down the screen to get it to fit on the N-Gage's smaller screen, which can make some game text hard to read. Anyway, with vBoy and a large MMC flash card loaded with Gameboy games, you are well prepared for those boring situtations you sometimes find yourself in... when you only have your keys, wallet, and phone.

Oh and in that situation, just imagine what you would do if you were a PSP owner. Answer: day dream about playing your PSP, which you left at home because it was just too big to take along with your keys, wallet, and phone :)

4. Colin McRae Rally 2005


Just wanted to give a heads up to people that actually do own a N-Gage and not this wonderfull game...to buy this damn game. It truly is one of the best N-Gage titles and a great game period (for any system). I was kind of leary, seeing that it was rally and all, but I thought for $5 (EB's sale), what the hell. Totally worth $5...and would have been worth the full $25. Besides being just plain addicting, the graphics are just awesome (for the N-Gage of course). The replays--well you just have to see them to believe. Buy it!!

Honestly at times this game would be my number two game. It's hands down the best racer on the N-Gage. It may very well have the best graphics of any game on the N-Gage but that's only a side note in what makes this game great. Every time I pick it up to play I'm just surprised by how much they were able to cram into this little portable game on a MMC card.

I also want to say that the same team that developed Colin Mcrae is developing System Rush (which is a Wipeout type game) which is looking like a great N-Gage racing game as well.

Pick this game up if you own a N-Gage the $5 sale is over but it's still easily worth the $19.99 it goes for normally. In fact at this point in time it is hands down the best portable rally game out there.

Yea I guess I should have mentioned just how big this game is. The back of the box said 64 tracks. and I thought "sure there's 64 if you count backwards and mirrored". But there actually are 64 tracks. And then there's Arena play. Honestly, I couldn't say enough good things about this game.

well acording to Nokia Xanadu Next is shipping. I haven't been able to find anywhere near me and I still have stores selling N-Gage stuff. The only people I know that have picked it up are living in the UK so I hope this game gets stateside soon. Although I've heard the game is tuff and has distant save points. Anyone in the States been able to find this game and pick it up yet. It seems the print runs on N-Gage games gets lower and lower with each game maybe its in anticipation of the new Nokia Smartphones being able to download the games. Either way Xanadu Next (while I don't know much about the series other than its popular in Japan) should be a collectors item.

No more shadow racing... *cries* =) Seriously, I'm beginning to think that I'm not going to play my N-Gage games anymore because of this unfortunate incident. Now if I could find a site that actually had the "images"...

Gemini-Phoenix
07-02-2005, 05:22 AM
Ok. Time for me to butt in here as I have been neglecting this thread for ages.

I'm a UK Ngager. I have also taken it upon myself to collect all the games. Sealed. Not such a hard feat seeing as there are only a handful of titles out. Wrong...

It seems impossible to get new releases here. All game shops and mobile phone shops have stopped stocking them (At least, around my area they have) - Yet Nokia keep releasing games. But where to???


eBay has been my friend for a long long time. Yet not this time. Ok, so I have gotten a few bargain Ngage games from there recently, but they really are few and far between. All that ever seems to be on there are the first dozen releases which are a dime a dozen and everyone has anyway.

Still, I did manage to snag a nice sealed copy of Sega Rally for only 20 a few months back - A game which many people believe to not even exist (Only released in Australia, and a good job too as it is poo)


Actually - I lie. My local GameStation does have a few newer releases. WWE Aftershock and Worms World Party. But they want 34.99 each!!! @_@

Now I don't know about you, but I resent paying 35 for an Ngage game. Especially a WWE game. And especially seeing as how all my other games (With the exception of Sega Rally) have all been under 15 a piece.


I also make the game count 58 - But that is including the as yet unreleased titles which have been announced on the official Ngage site (It also includes Snake 3D) - Without the unreleased games, I make it 40 (Still including Snake 3D and also Sega Rally too)


Whatever happened to "Memories" and "Virtua Cop"? Are these still being developed? Or have they pulled the plug?


Anyway, here is a pic of my collection so far. Halfway more or less. With the exception of Sega Rally, all are the UK releases.

Note the Virtua Tennis spine WITH Virtua Tennis logo on it.

http://img147.imageshack.us/img147/9861/ngagegamessmallpro7jh.th.jpg (http://img147.imageshack.us/my.php?image=ngagegamessmallpro7jh.jpg)

Since that picture was taken, I have added "Operation Shadow" and "Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory"

And yes, I have two copies of Monkey Ball. I started off buying and playing my games, but then decided to collect them all sealed (Like my DreamCast collection) - Hence why there are two.

Usually I would've sold the unsealed double, but I really love this game, and think it is one of the Ngage's better few...

So I found out my job pays for my monthly cell phone bill. So with the T-Mobile deal of Nokia's website they actually paid me $50 (rebate) to take a QD with Tony Hawk. And I finally figured out a way to expense a game system to my company. This makes me happy on so many levels.

When they make the system download only, I'll stop buying. I just need to have the game on my shelf or it doesn't seem real to me. Maybe I'm just bitter for getting shafted on my Xbox Arcade content when my system went all China Syndrome, but I really don't want to buy games without a physical manifestation anymore.

Now for the questions. How do you get downloaded stuff onto it? I don't have arena and no bluetooth on my PC. Also, does anybody know how to disable or prolong the time before the backlight turns off during gameplay? Also, just to clarify, Virtua Cop and Alien Front were not released and have been cancled, correct?

Pocket Kingdom blows. I really can't see what all the fuss was about- the game's so damn passive. You don't get to control your characters in battle, you can barely customize your troops (naming them would have been a nice touch), you pretty much shop and heal. It's an extremely barebones RPG with no gameplay at all outside the menu system. I was extremely disapointed.

You can take out the MMC and put it into an card reader. And if you don't have one, they cost only 10€.
I don't like the idea of "download only" but to be honest - even if I buy a game I download a cracked version and put it on my 256MB MMC. I just don't want to take 4 or 5 MMCs with me just to play a game and nearly every N-Gage User does this. So the download idea fits the system.

Xanadu Next is not a very good game. It has too many loading screens and it's really hard and unbalanced. I don't think it will become a collectors item. I'm lucky to have this:

well I don't really like RPGs that much so maybe that says something about this game since i really liked it. yes, its very simple and requires more menu navagating than anything else. I found it very addictive to build up my party and forge weapons and shields than take it online to see how well my party would do against others. PK2 has been anounced already so it will be interesting to see what changes they make. people who even liked the game had similar complaints to yours so will see.

I agree. I require a physical manifestation of something. I especially believe this if I am spending my good hard earned cash on something - I don't want to spend money on something that technically doesn't exist (Virtual = Doesn't exist)

But - I keep all my games sealed. I use the cracked versions of games so that I can still play my games - The ones that are sealed that is.


I don't like the idea of download only. I hate the idea of it for music, and I hate it for games too. I realy hope Nokia don't go in this direction...


Half the fun of gaming is the collecting aspect of it. Who's going to want to collect used MMC cards or virtual files? I want something I can display on my shelf - Not a shelf full of various copied discs / cards...


Call me old fashioned, but it's just wrong. It's just another way these companies are trying to get maximum profit from not actually doing much. They want to get money for doing practically nothing in the process

Well Glimerati was released now so that make 41 US releases for the N-Gage. Xanadu Next is still no where to be seen in the states. It is supposed to be released and Gamestop's status on the game went from pre-order to back order which isn't a very good sign that they ever even got any. It does seem to be released over seas since I've read several peoples impressions of the game over on the N-Gage boards. From what I've heard it sounds like a pretty borderline game with high difficulty. I'm hoping Glimerati will be good its been in the N-Gage hype machine long enough. Mixed reviews of it so far from the pro sites.

did not see glimmerti, but did get some interesting info from the new store manager, who is apparently close to the ngage rep and is an ngage dork too...

she said the rep told her that a megaman compilation is on its way soon, as is the pirate game i mentioned a while back. she couldnt remember any other games he had mentioned, but said he was confident in these being released. thats encouraging at least...and she said shed check on any newer NFR games, and ask about a store display. id love to have a dual ngage store display!

though i expect you(classicb) and i(me) are the only ones keeping tabs, im still looking for the other two(or more) NFR games i need...ashen is one, ive forgotten the other.

07-15-2005, 09:12 PM
well its not just you and me I know that at least DP is as well. BTW I have an extra sealed copy of Ashen if you want to trade something.

Megaman on the N-Gage would be great but Capcom is draging its feet with the system as they still haven't released Catan yet.

The pirate game looks great its seems to be basically Advanced Wars but on the sea and Online. Should be great along with Rifts.

It seems that Nokia is fine with just trickling out a few releases to the hardcore fans untill their new smartphones come out that will allow people to download all the N-Gage games released so far. I think at this point Nokia with hype up their systems again. From what I understand of their new plan their will still be MMC card releases (although probably very limited) of the games even when the new smartphones come out. This will last untill the N-Gage 2 comes out when we will see if they give up game card type distribution all together.

Also I just found a Gamestop with Xanadu game but they won't hold it for me. "we don't really do that but I don't think it will be a problem your the first person to ask about it... its N-Gage game we don't sell many of those". Well I hope its their when I get there.

What is wrong with people and Ngage games? Why is there next to none on eBay? Sealed ones are even harder to locate too, even on eBay! I have to really scrape eBay dry to actually get a sealed Ngage game these days, and only manage one per month at the rate it is going as people just don't list them at all.

And I must live in the very worst place on the planet. There is only two places that sell brand new Ngage games here, and that's either Comet or GameStation...

Comet have a few good titles, but want 39.99 for them (Older first release titles are around 34.99) ~ And is it any surprise that they have not sold a single game since February! (So the sales lady was teling me) Ha!

GameStation want stupid money for their new releases as well, off which they don't stock each new release (Xmen Legends II and WWE being the only two current releases they stock). Even their pre-owned Ngage games are twice the price that brand new ones cost on eBay...

Yeah I've seen Glimerati at my Gamestop along with Xanadu but I had already ordered it online. The real trick will be finding the next four releases in a store. Catan which is supposed to come out this month isn't in the Gamestop computers. The next game they show is Rifts. That skips System Rush, Atari vol1, Hiegh Sieze and Catan which are all scheduled to come out before Rifts.

yeah N-Gage.com I've heard mixed reviews about ordering from them. They seem fine to me though. I hadn't gotten the last three releases so I took advantage of their 3 for 15% off deal with free 2 day shipping and had no problems. I'm all up to date on my n-gage untill Catan comes out.

What is wrong with people and Ngage games? Why is there next to none on eBay? Sealed ones are even harder to locate too, even on eBay! I have to really scrape eBay dry to actually get a sealed Ngage game these days, and only manage one per month at the rate it is going as people just don't list them at all.

And I must live in the very worst place on the planet. There is only two places that sell brand new Ngage games here, and that's either Comet or GameStation...

Comet have a few good titles, but want 39.99 for them (Older first release titles are around 34.99) ~ And is it any surprise that they have not sold a single game since February! (So the sales lady was teling me) Ha!

GameStation want stupid money for their new releases as well, off which they don't stock each new release (Xmen Legends II and WWE being the only two current releases they stock). Even their pre-owned Ngage games are twice the price that brand new ones cost on eBay...

have you tried Allack. I've never used them since I don't live in the UK but I always hear people on the N-Gage boards talking about their sales they have every once in awhile.

Well the only release for the N-Gage in August has been shipped according to N-Gage.com. Also the only place that you can get it right now.

Only time will tell but it is my feeling that this game will not show up in stores since when I tried to pre order it at Gamestop it didn't show up in the computer. That along with no sign of an upcoming release on the gamestop.com website make me feel that they are done with the N-Gage. I also spoted the 50% off sale thread here today that furthered my theory of them ending N-Gage sales. After EBgames had their sale they got WWE and that was it.

So if anyone sees a Catan out there let us know. I'm curious if this game finds its way to actuall B&M stores.

my gamestop said theyre dumping ngage all together(hence the 50% off sales). i figure ill get caught up with games too while theyre $10 each new. i have also placed an order for catan, high seize, rifts, one and mile high pinball. guess ill see if they show up. it came to $97 for all 5 games, shipped (if they ever do) from ngage.com.

ngage.com uses letstalk.com to sell their n-gage games. yes its the 15% off when you buy more than 3 games and free shipping. its directly conected to the n-gage.com site.

GameStation seem to be making a very small effort to stay on top of Ngage related things...

Following their dire efforts to sell ECW and Worms at 34.99, they now have copies of Glimmerati in stock, again, at 34.99...

Luckily, I purchased my sealed one for littlle over a tenner from eBay! :-P


I just wish that there could be one dedicated seller of Ngage games on eBay (One which doesn't originate from Hong Kong)


I also make a weekly phone call to my local Comet to see if they have yet dropped their prices for the games they have, but no such luck. They seem confident that they will sell them at 39.99... @_@

I don't believe Catan is out yet...at their booth at Gencon, all they had were video screens showing the game...not a playable demo as of yet. The game looks good, looks to be a version of the wonderful board game.

Well for anyone interested here it is. At the end of the day I guess it is just a silver faceplate but that's what happens when you have cell phone roots. At least they made an attempt at being an LE with the tin and MMC game case. I'd like to get one since I use my QD everyday and it shows. It'd be nice to have one in good condition just for the collection.

I guess we just have to wait and see for a US release. I called letstalk.com and it seems to be pushed back even farther into October to the 17th. Nokia is supposed to make some big anouncement on October 13th so maybe they're trying to get themselves back in US stores for the release of these upcoming games.

I hope we get US releases for these upcoming games since they looked to be some of the best N-Gage games yet.

Someone must have tipped him off, or he must've actually checked to see what the going prices were.

Either way, I am very happy to have snapped them up at the price I did when I did! :)

I'm starting to feel like we might not get anymore US releases since Catan and System Rush have been out for sometime now overseas. Nokia has always released their games at the same time everywhere (except Sega Rally).

I have had several new games on order from Lets Talk for a few weeks now and never received a confirmation or updates. I also don't believe you can get a status report from their site. I know the order went in because I received a few of the older games I ordered from them recently which were part of the order.

I know I can order from the UK, but I would rather own the real deal US versions with the ESRB ratings as opposed to the European rating logo on the case.

As far as rare games, Lets Talk does not stock Virtua Tennis, but this is readily available from Gamestop. Sega Rally is Australia only and can still be purchased from a few on-line retailers down under. Only seen it once on Ebay though.

System Rush is out in the U.S. this kid over on N-Gage.com managed to get one from letstalk.com

man these late releases are going to be hard to get. apparently the letstalk.com website doesn't work as well as it should. since some kids had System Rush pre ordered for quite some time and didn't get it when this kid just calls in and they send him a copy. my suggestion would be to do all orders by phone so you can find out if they have the game or not.

he took a picture to show he actually got it.

so it looks like letstalk.com is getting ready to do something with the n-gage. I saw this on the front of the n-gage.com website today. this is the first time I've seen it.

I like how it says limited edition games. the free games are probably when you buy a new n-gage.

Looks like I'm one of you now...Started my N-Gage collection just under 3 hours ago, and I'm at 33 games. :D Heard that new N-Gage games were going for 50% off of $6.99 at Gamestop, and I went to town:

Rich

I also joined the N-gage collectors today. Went looking for an N-gage today. At the first Funcoland (Game Stop) they did not have any games on display so I ask and the sales guy said he would look to see if they had all been sent back yet. He found a box and I got 5 games that were priced at $6.99 but no 50% off. :( .

Since they did not have any systems I went to the Funcoland accross the street and they still had games on display with a sign saying all games $6.99. It did not say anything about 50% off. Anyway I picked up 7 more games and when he rang it up it came to $124 for an N-gage and 7 games. He took 50% off of the games. :) . The guys in this Funcoland also said they were sending all N-gage stuff back next week.

So, Your price may vary depending on the store you go to.

Also, N-Gage is going, going, gone in Funcoland/Game Stop. They should all be gone by the end of next week. However you may still be able to find them if your local store is a top 200 store. The guy in the first store said they go to one of the top 200 stores when the send the back.

Damn, you Americans have it sweet over there. To actually have a shop stocking them is amazing, but those prices are unbelievable in the literal sense!

I on the other hand had to earn my games the hard way, by sitting and waiting and snapping them up whenever they came on eBay. I also had to pay a lot more for them too!


Question: Those of yo now with "Complete" collections... When you say *Complete*, are you also considering Sega Rally too? To me, the collection would only be complete when I have the entire set of released games for my region (UK) as well as Sega Rally...

I'd have to have my entire main set all the same regional designation though. I wouldn't be able to mix and match UK / US / Australian ones as it would look wrong (With the exception of Sega Rally that is)

I alway refer to my collection as a complete U.S. collection. That's about as complete as it will probably get. I don't really buy imports. Although its tempting to try and get it since its only one game at this point.

*complete* to me always refers to my regions releases.

Here is the deal on the 50% off for n-gage games at gamestop. The $6.99 IS the half off price since all games and accessories are $14.99 now. Their computers automatically discount the 50% off, but some stores don't realize it.

Lucky for us, the first store we went to was confused and we got 12 games for $3.50. All the other stores we hit after that charged us the $6.99 price and explained that the first store was in the wrong.

Quite. Full UK releases for me, and then any games (Like Sega Rally) which were never released here. If, forever reason, they chose to release a certain game in America and not here, then i'd get my complete UK collection, and then buy the odd ones which I was missing.


I can seriously not believe that some of you have just gone out and bought an instant complete collection just like that! And at such a low price too! Especially after such hard work and dedication to my collection. :(

Finally I've been looking forward to this game for awhile now. It seems like the delay was due to some reworking of the site. The n-gage.letstalk.com site has changed a bit to allow buying games in sets like a FPS and sports sets. They also have a refer a friend program to try and get more people to buy the QD. If you manage to do so you both get a free game.

I'm going to hold off on buying anything for a few more weeks since the site seems to be changing daily.

well it looks like the online order only time has come. Catan and Stystem Rush are now showing in stock when you add them to your cart. Atari Masterpiece seems to be missing now from the shopping area. As already noted some people in the states have already been able to get System Rush and now people seem to be getting Catan as well.

The rest of the games that should be released soon: Heigh Seize, Rifts, One, and Xmen Legends II should all ship at the end of the month.

I think its safe to say that we are at 43 U.S. released N-Gage games now with 4 more about to come out. I have no idea what is up with Atari Masterpeice. I tried to find out but talking to some of the people at Letstalk is like beating your head into the wall. You have to explain to them that they do sell N-Gage games since most times the try to tell you that they don't.

letstalk.com is the official N-Gage website. look at the address when you order its n-gage.letstalk.com

ive only got the stand along one they had at cingular stores...though i bet the EB games employees would give them away. i had hoped to get a big cardboard stand alone one they had at the Eb near me, but no dice...they sent it back.

the new accessories have finally been listed on the n-gage.com(letstalk.com) website. They are all backordered at this moment but the fact that they even listed them makes me think they might be getting them. In a lot of ways it makes me think they will end up getting most all of the games it just might be awhile.

for me I've been looking forward to those aluminium cases and the speaker.

I bought 2 official NOKIA MMC for N-Gage systems they were 64MB and 128MB ones for only $6.99 each at my local gamestop. I have checked about 5 other Gamestops they had ZILCH of those so check your local gamestops. i know its not a big deal to some of you but who knows it'd become a collectible items for the N-gage but then maybe NOT !

I'm pretty sure zektor has a 1GB MMC but I'll let him confirm that.

I also saw over on the n-gage.com boards that Gamestation is running some holiday specials for you UK collectors.

cut and pasted from the n-gage.com board:



1) N-Gage Games - 2 for 15 (titles include):

Rayman 3
Sonic N
Tiger Woods PGA 2004
Tony Hawks
Tomb Raider


2) N-Gage QD + Sonic N / Rayman for 79.99 (Gamestations own package)

3) N-Gage QD + SSX / Splinter Cell Choas Theory for 79.99 (the original pre-bundled package)

However on November 10th (hopefully) they are going to start selling the SILVER N-GAGE QD...and heres a cool offer.

4) Silver N-GAGE QD + ONE / Pathway To Glory : Ikusa Islands / Ashpalt Urban GT 2 for 79.99 (gamestations special package)

that 4th one looks good since you were thinking about getting the silver QD

Enixis
11-09-2005, 03:36 PM
The n-gage supports MMCs till 1GB. However, MMCs 512mb and above will have slower access rates for applications and games. The most ideal would be 256mb, imo.

Gemini-Phoenix
11-09-2005, 03:49 PM
Access rates don't bother me too much so long as the storage capacity is all there. Iwould willingly sacrifice access rate for twice the storage capacity... So long as A) The storage is cheap, and B) The ratio is somethin equal to half the access rate, double the capacity...


And yes, that fourth option does look grand, seeing as the Silver QD is what i'd be after, and seeing as I have none of those games listed.... Be a bargain at 79.99! If I'd bought them separately on eBay, it would probably cost me that much to pay for the games alone! Depends on whether or not my skanky GameStation sells these bundles or not....

I use a 512MB card in my QD. In fact I was afraid to buy a bigger one because I was scared that the slower access times would be really slow. Honestly I think 512MB is big enough, but I only have 2 N-Gage "roms" (that I own the cards for), a handfull of MP3s/videos, and about 150 GB/NES roms (again that I own the cartridges for). I still have 300MB left.

edit// I have to comment on that speaker. It would be a great idea if the QD had decent sound. MP3's no matter what bitrate sound like crap. And so do the games. Don't get me wrong, LOVE my QD, but I hope the "nextgen" N-Gage improves on the sound quality.

I don't suppose they have made it universal for owners of the original N-Gage. I hate when they do things like that ~ Nintendo disowned the eReader when they released the SP...

I think the E-Reader works fine on the SP. It slides in the cartridge slot and if you need the link cable, you use the exposed link socket on top of the SP, not the E-Reader passthrough.

If you haven't played it before as I hadn't the learning cuve is pretty steap. I had to watch some online Flash tutorials in order to figure it out. Once you get the hang of it, its probalby one of the best games I have on my N-Gage. Its a great strategy game. The depth and balance is great. Its intresting because once you figure it out its kind of a simple game of building settlements, roads and trading goods. As soon as I update my N-Gage list on the first page of this thread it will be near the top. I recommend it highly but if your new to the game you might need some online help to get you going.

It does work, but not all functions work as the USB-like connection sticks out, not actually joined to anything. Therefore, transferring codes to Animal Crossing is impossible unless you have an original style GBA. And again, I bet it doesn't work with the GBA Micro...

i put in preorders for high seize and one long ago, but havent seen any sign they are shipping...may have to call letstalk myself. again.

EDIT: letstalk says they have not received these games... are you ordering from them or from another site?

I just got High Seize from Let's Talk yesterday, if that helps.

I order my games from The official NGAGE site, it redirects me to the letstalk.com site only after my order is placed.

Atari Collection ships to me today, and the remaining $200 worth of games I preordered ship one of these days.

the left hand doesnt know what the right hand is doing, apparently. if there were ANYWHERE to buy these games other than letstalk i would. i have literally spent hours on the phone waiting for these people to take thier heads out of their asses, and gotten nowhere.

if anyone gets through and has actual accurate information, please take a contact name and i will ask for them direct. the people ive talked to have no idea whats going on. ive actually had letstalk representatives tell me they didnt know these games are sold on their site. :angry:

i placed my preorder on august 16th. id have thought id be included in the first shipment.

I just got a tracking order number for my Rifts purchase. I guess its available now. I also got them to seperate One and Hiegh Sieze from the rest of my pre-orders so they would ship now. I'm now having a problem getting them to ship Atari Masterpiece Vol 1 to me ... I guess I'll try again to day.

I must agree that the people at letstalk are the least informed people I've ever had to do business with. I have to walk them through the steps every time I call.

them: "That games still back ordered sir"
me: "are you sure it says it available on your site and I have friends who have already got it"
them: "yes" .... "oh wait I do see it listed as available"

I just want to know what screen are they looking at when they answer the phone? that would also be a good call since some people who answer try and tell you they don't even sell N-Gage stuff.

well, ive gotten my copies of atari masterpeices, just got confirmation of shipment of xmen legends 2, but cant seem to get one, high seize, or rifts. though i have started getting emails from n-gage for every new game that is 'now available in stores'....id love to know which stores these are, as id travel far and wide to not have to deal with letstalk.

It looks like Let's Talk is finally starting to keep accurate on-line inventory. High Seize, One, System Rush, Catan, Rifts and Atari Masterpieces Vol.1 are all in stock and have shipped. X-Men Legends 2 seems to have arrived on Friday and is now shipping. I am guessing the remaining games will be in over the next couple of weeks, along with the accessories.

I'm out of town right now but I just talked to my girlfriend and I got a package from letstalk. I had her open it and it was One and Heigh Sieze. :) I'll look forward to playing those when I get back. Hopefully Rifts and Atari Masterpeice Vol 1 will be there too by the time I get back in a week.

Has anyone recieved X-Men Legends 2 or Asphalt 2 yet?

I still need to work on my collection. I am going out on Friday (yes, I said it) to buy some more n-gage games. I found this store here in Omaha that sells n-gage games.

It will suck finding parking, but it will be awesome to have some more n-gage games.

ok, got xmen legends 2 today. oidd thing about this box is it looks like it had a upc code on it, but its been blacked out. i dont know why they would do this to begin with, but it looks like they had a machine black out the upc after it was printed. seems like a waste to assign a upc code, then black it out....maybe this is a prerelease copy that got mixed in with the shipment or something...

EDIT: on closer examination, the rear upc can almost be made out, and it isnt the same as the upc code on the peel off sticker on the side of the case...curious.

I'm getting bored of waiting for the remaining few games to appear on eBay, so i'm officially asking now if anyone has, or can get me, the following...

All must be originally sealed, and all must be the UK releases:

Asphalt: Urban GT II
Atari Masterpieces - Volume I
Catan
High Seize
Marcel Desailly Pro Soccer
Mile High Pinball
NCAA Football 2004
ONE
Pathway To Glory: Ikusa Islands
Rifts: Promise Of Power
System Rush
The Roots: Gates Of Chaos
WWE Aftershock
Xmen Legends
Xmen Legends II: Dawn Of Apocalypse


I know a few of these may not be out yet though, but are due to be released November (So the N-Gage site says anyway)


PS: Could anyone give any info on my question found HERE (http://www.digitpress.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=74388) regarding the pre-release press kits that are given out. Thanks

I've given you this link before but its the only place I know that sells all of the new N-Gage games in the UK besides the Gamestations http://ngage.allack.co.uk/

and I don't know much about pre-release press kits

also I thought NCAA football was a US only release. If you want that game I could easily find it for $6.99 plus whatever shipping is to the UK.

here is everything I've gotten post Glimmerati which I think we all agree was the last games to be available in B&M stores.

http://pickledvellum.com/newngagegames.jpg

I just got home today and I missed another package from letstalk which should have Atari Masterpiece Vol 1, Asphalt 2 and X-men Legends 2.

now I can't wait to dig into Rifts. I've been waiting for this for a long time.

Can't buy from online stores as I don't have a credit / debit card. See the problem? Therefore i've been relying on eBay so far, and has served me well having given me nearly 40 titles. I am just bored of waiting for the remainder to appear, so thought maybe someone had some, or knew of someone who would list some on eBay or sell privately with payment via PayPal...

As far as I know, NCAA was released in the UK. It's listed on the UK release list (On the official site) and all... I'm afraid my collection is UK releases only though (With Sega Rally being the exception)


System Rush I have a pre-release version of, and I gave it a quick go, and was not impressed. It is very lo-tech, and not the usual quality like some other N-Gage games. I at least expected something a little less blurrier, and a game where it is easy to control ~ I found myself constantly crashing into walls as you just cannot turn.

High Seize I have been waiting to give a go ~ Is it similar to the PlayStation game "Overboard"?

And what about Rifts, Catan, and ONE? What are those games all about?

UPS just came and that's exactly what I got. My X-Men Legends 2 also has the barcode blacked out. Its the only one of all the new games I've gotten.

the next releases should be Mile High Pinball and the new Pathway to Glory.

IGN has some new reviews for System Rush and One. The closing coments for One seem to be true for most all of these late release N-Gage games



One is another good game for the N-Gage that I'm afraid few will play. It's sad, because at this point, Nokia is just being punished for early mistakes and so few people want to give the N-Gage a chance anymore. They're missing out on games like this, which have solid depth and play value -- I enjoyed One more than some PSP games. If you have the system, seriously consider seeking out a copy of One. It's further proof that the N-Gage, like the PS2 or Xbox, got better with age.

I don't know if any of you have seen this but Game_Hunter who post quite a bit on the N-Gage board made this great FAQ for the N-Gage and all the games up to Glimmerati. He list the games in order that they were released too if anyone was interested in that. Great stuff so make sure you check it out.

man, back to the phones and hours of hassle with lets talk.

anyone find any newer release NFR games? ive gotten glimmerati, and someone said they had xanadu next, but im wondering if there are any stores still carrying ngage, and if theyre still making NFRs for the newer releases?

thats weird, n-gage.com doesn't have xmen legends 2 listed as released all though many of us already have a copy. maybe this explains the barcode?

11-30-2005, 08:07 PM
dont know. the intricacies of letstalk.com are shocking.

most of the games ship UPS, at least they have in the past. my xmen legends 2 shipped from a different section of the company, and shipped out using fedex. different return area(same address) UPS one said 'warehouse shipping'(or something) the fed ex one said 'customer services'(or similar) and each had a dofferent contact number...ill check when i get home and edit later. i wondered if the xmen game wasnt a preview copy or something that got shipped from another area. DreamTR said his copies had a bar code on them...

I have no idea either. I could call them right now and probably talk to someone who would insist they don't even carry N-Gage games.

Also I just got a shippment email for Pathway to Glory: Ikusa Islands so I guess this game is out as well.

I've also noticed the wierd shipping details. This ones shipping Fedex (most of mine come UPS)... so whatever that means. x_x

yeah Pathway to Glory will be the big 50 (unless you count Sega Rally then its 51)

I remember over a year ago Nokia made an anouncement they were going to have 50 titles out by the end of the year. Well better late than never and I'm sure some people thought it would never happen.
