That GA boxart, the main character for a start looks nothing like the actual character in the game. But also, he looks a spitting image of dolph lungren in he man and the masters of the universe.

Is tha MacGuyvver?

I love old box arts. Can't believe how they got away with so much. LOL

Gilius is fucking ripped!

But, alas, poor Axe Battler seems to have been hitting the steroids a bit too much... no bulge...

So sad!

Speaking of sad, that woman's right foot is twisted really bad.


How's that sad?  She's flexible.

From DS.IGN.Com's (Surprising) 8.5 Review of Dragon Quest Wars:

"Dragon Quest Wars may not offer the kind of epically lengthy role-playing experience that most gamers would commonly associate with its brand, but what it does offer is superb. This small, focused strategy design is like a slime-infused reimagining of the game of chess, and has just as much depth and variety as that classic board game -- or maybe more, since chess never let you determine your own lineup. And if you weren't sold before this point, it's important to note before we close that there's a good reason this grid-based strategy concept feels so at home here -- it was developed by Intelligent Systems, the same Nintendo house responsible for the Fire Emblem and Advance Wars series.

DSiWare, as an overall service, hasn't had an extraordinary debut this year -- but it's games like this that prove its potential. If you're at all a fan of chess, or Dragon Quest, or strategy gaming at all, spend the priced-right amount of five bucks and grab this new virtual board game. It's chess with slimes, and it'll keep your attention in check for a long time to come."

From Wii.IGN.Com's 8.0 Review of Driift Mania:

"Even with a handful of odd quirks and strange omission, this is easily one of the better WiiWare games available to download, and 800 points seems like the perfect sweet spot for the type of game you’re getting on Wii. It’s a satisfying arcade racer that revives the top-down perspective, and it continues to show that you don’t have to be in the cockpit of a vehicle to have a great time."

Nice scores, and I can pretty much agree with the DQW rating.  My only complaint is being able to win by just making it to the other guy's side of the board.  But I suppose if somehow you only had 2 healie slimes to battle with, you'd need some way to win the fight.

Heh! That's what I get for not completing the training yet...

I had no idea you could do that!

Do you know how many times I've given up cause all I had left was a heal slime...  Nyaa

As for the friend code... No idea! I'm looking now though!

Yeah I didn't finish training, but after losing two battles that way I kind of figured it out on my own.  That's why there are those couple highlighted blocks that stay lit the entire battle despite nobody being on them.

Connect to Wi-Fi, it will assign you a 12 digit friend code.

Mine is: 1419 6187 3599.

Then we would have to register each other.

I think we just need to exchange  Nintendo WFC ID's...?

That's in the internet options...

Mine is: 4989-0133-0453-1000.

No that's not it.

You need to connect to the Nintendo Wi-Fi connection (you don't have to play, just connect) then disconnect and go to Options and then Friend Roster.

Your code is on the top screen

3395 3036 9378

EDIT: Nice edit, Leo Nyaa

Nope we're wrong.  Once you start the game go to Options.

Once you are in options select Friend Roster, and you will see your friend code as well as where you can enter your friends codes.  Mine is:  3653 0015 2773

Sorry, that's not it. We found the correct way and posted it above.
