Here it is folks, an attempt to get people to be more active in our forums. This thread is dedicated to all those things that randomly show up in the gaming world. Got a really funny gaming related image, video, or ytmnd you want to show the world? Do it here. Want to pimp up the latest system sales in Japan? Do it here. Want to do some random Sony Hating? Do it here. Anything and everything that is gaming randomness is fair game in this thread, so long as it stays in line with the Forum Agreement. So have fun, and try to create activity and interest. Perhaps if your topic becomes popular enough, you might even see it become its own thread. No guarantees.

I'll start this shindig. How about those Japanese sales charts? Is it me, or does the DS print Nintendo Money. 10 million systems sold in Japan, the DS is currently the fastest selling system ever in Japan. Strange, no?

You know, do you think the DS gave Nintendo a wakeup call to the "retro craze" that seems to be happening?  It seems the main buzz around the Wii is being able to play a bunch of old games.  I think people are tired of all the rehashed new stuff/crap.  The DS provides a lot of old-style gaming in 2d games etc...Just a thought of mine. I mean, the Wii and PS3 seem to be going in completely opposite directions as far as price and types of games.  And it seems the Wii has quite a large advantage from what I've seen written by gamers.

I don't know if it necessarily got Nintendo on the "retro craze", but I do think that the DS was the first step in getting Nintendo to go in another direction. Rather than try to go for the greatest everything, why not try to do something completely different? Perhaps it will net you 10 million sales of your handheld in Japan. Do I think the steps Nintendo is taking will lead to good things for the industry? Yes, yes I do. I do think that games are becoming more and more of a rehash of past games, and I think Nintendo genuinely wants to change that, and get developers to do something new. On that note, boy am I looking forward to the Wii.

I don't know how to respond to that Tynstar besides learn the fads and try to do more than view the top visited sites considering there is a trick to getting on the top visited.

Also you have to play Phoenix Wright and have seen the Simpsons or Family Guy episode with Cosby.

I don't really feel this needs its own thread:

What is the product code for the European/UK Super Mario Brothers 3?

I couldn't get mine to work, then I realised the code on the cartridge is NES-UM-USA-1. I assume that means it's the American one.

It comes up with the SMB3 stage/curtains then keeps resetting. Is that what happens when you put a game from a different region in the console?
