    I guess I can do it but would it suffice to say that the spine simply has the Virtua Tennis text as it appears on the front of the box? It really isn't blank. Honest!

    Good enough for me, I got to go check my Gamestops' to see if they have the non-blank one.

    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.

    Don't want to start a new thread so...has The Roots: Gates of Chaos been released yet? I've seen different release dates everywhere.

    well your guess is as good as mine. the release dates on N-Gage games change like the weather. I do know its not out yet. It is "supposed" to come out mid May but who knows. I tried to figure out for the longest time when Worms was coming out and then all of a sudden it was just there.

    Yeah I know, according to Gamestop.com it comes out the 6th or somewhere around there.

    It's not out now, but Nokia sent out review copies to magazines and webpages a few days ago. So a mid-may release is most likely.

    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.

    Hey classicb do you know what is the story behind Shade: Wrath of Angels? It seems as if you can purchase on the N-gage webstore. But I had never heard of this game before. It also seems that a new game Hinter Wars has been announced: http://www.hinterwars.com/html/human_colony.html

    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-

    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).

    Ah, that's what I was thinking thanks for the clarification. I heard you will also be able to play Hinter Wars on your PC, that's an interesting idea.

    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.

    Here is the Tony Hawk scan you wanted. Sorry I can't get that Arena sticker they put on all the original games off.

    oh and yeah Red Faction not so good. Try Ghost Recon for FPS action on the N-Gage.

    You should try Ashen - its the best FPS on the N-Gage. And there is also a Doom port for Symbian OS.

    Hmm...seems as if we might have a rarity, or this person might not know what they are talking about:
    Thank you for e-mailing Nokia's Contact Center.

    We appreciate your inquiry about advertised games for the N-Gage game deck.

    The N-Gage web site does not list every game that is available for the game deck. If you see a game you want on the Letstalk web site, then it is available for you; it is not a mistake.

    If you have any additional questions, please contact us. To ensure proper handling, please continue to use the current subject line.

    Thank you for choosing Nokia for your mobile needs.

    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.

    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.
