Why not sign up for a (free) account and create your own content?
It is pretty weird and silly that this game isn't online, but then again it is Nintendo and free, so I guess you can't get everything.

I'll download it now, but I probably won't play it until I get a chance to play with others. Outside of doing a test run.

But look at Starfox. No online... so it seems it's the same as last generation or whatever. They do whatever the hell they want and never expect online from any of their products. I'm surprised Mario Kart 7 has online

WHAT THE F I have to download this to system memory? Why? God dangit. I have no space. Now the fridge management starts. I don't care what Casper says, they should have worked something better out for DSiWare titles... especially new DsiWare/3DS titles.

F-ing fridge management. Oh well, I guess I can remove Alphabounce or something like that which I'd probably never play again anyway. Still annoying.

DOUBLE WHAT THE F if I remove a game from my system memory I am forced to delete the save data too? This essentially guarantees that I will never play it again. Lame.

Forget about it being free - I'd have paid 15 bucks just to have this thing come with online. Seriously. It's just about useless to me as a free game since I have no one to play it with until we do a Negative World meetup.

Well there's still a single player mode so it's not totally useless.

I haven't looked at it yet. Is the single-player mode pretty cool? I would think the whole point of Four Swords is the multiplayer, but I'm willing to be open-minded.

It seems enjoyable but I only did the tutorials which explains the use of each item. It's probably not as fun but I played through the entirety of Four Swords on GameCube alone and enjoyed that. Since you only control two Links, it seems some parts will make up for the missing players such as having to push statues on switches instead of another player.

What's everyone doing tomorrow?

I had a metaphor for single player 4 Swords versus multiplayer 4 Swords, but it's probably too dirty to post in a public news thread. Suffice to say single player 4 Swords is fun, but more often than not it's just going to make you wish that you were not playing alone.

Had some fun with the first area. Same as last time I played it. I couldn't imagine enjoying this alone though.

How many DSiWare games do you own?

...Except when you throw in three other guys, your metaphor fails spectacularly .

(Well for some of us. Others might be okay with it.)

Been playing this multiplayer with the Mrs and we are having a fun time with it. Never played the GBA version so this is new to us.

@Shadowlink I wasn't going to say it, but since you said it first... who says it fails? Maybe it makes it better.

@GameDadGrant Um... 13?

I just played some of it with Anon!

For, like, 3 hours.

The retro areas are pretty sweet, I gotta say. I think we finished them all, but I'm kind of unclear as to what the icons mean on the map. For all I know, we may need to complete it twice more...

Wait... you guys just randomly met up in real life? Wow.

Hm. Wait, are all of those games like, HUGE? The 3DS has around 2GB of storage, right? NOT counting the SD card that comes packaged with the system, yeah? Or maybe not, I think. Maybe the 3DS's internal storage is much, much smaller than we think. I assume this because I have a 2GB SD card in my DSi, and my 40 or so DSiWare downloads are on that card. And I still have TONS of room. Like, I still have over 7,000 "blocks" free on the card. And it's not like I only have games on the card... I've got a bunch of photos and music files, too.

Anyone know exactly how much "space" is on the 3DS's internal uh... space? Memory or... whatever it is? (sorry, I'm not very computer literate, not sure what the technical term is)

In any case, there can't be 2GB worth of free space on the 3DS. If there really was that kind of room, then you'd be able to have far, far more than just 13 DSiWare titles sitting on your system!

I still don't understand why DSi Shop downloads don't go on the SD card. So strange.
