Why can't I pick 3 answers? :-\
For me it's like this:
- I haven't decided
- because I don't have a DS
- but if it's good...

It'd have to be better than it looks right now though. If it's not, then

im gonna emulate it

For obvious reasons it's hard to say anything about other second vision titles at the moment.

Throwing a vote in the no section.  Dearly Stars just doesn't look that interesting of a purchase or worth buying a DS for.  Depending on what the other second vision titles turn up as, it might be worthwhile purchasing those but time will tell.

Yes.

Already pre-ordered Dearly Stars at PA.

It really depends XDD

1) I'd buy the DS game if it wasn't so expensive and I wasn't saving up for a console for the first game (but, basically, when I have the money to, YES)
2) If the 2nd Vision iM@S is for the PS3, a thousand times yes. If it's just for the 360...ehh, hopefully I'll have one by then, so probably.

and, to azuyuki, this game is pretty easy to play without knowledge of Japanese. There's a site with all the commu-answers, if you still want to do those...

Don't have a DS and don't plan to get it due to the nature of the DS

But if my sister does get a DSi or DSl, then I might want to play it or buy it.

That's going a little overboard. But still emulators aren't perfect you know...

That's why I said probably. I remember my emulator crashed when I tried playing on it the JP version of Endless Frontier.

Especially you have 2 ARM cores to emulate on a single x86 CPU/Core, if I'm right about how the DS is organized in terms of hardware.

Just check it up on Wikipedia if you want a rough idea.

How very moral of you :D

I've only emulated two games that I've never owned at any point in time. The rest of the roms i have are games I've bought but lost or want to cheat at.

Technically, it's still not legal to have a dumped rom of a game you own.

But eh, whatever.

Confident that you don't want to try it out on a normal DS first?
Or do you not have a normal DS?

Dsi's seem to be region-coded (at least from the last post), but I know that the older DS aren't region coded (sort of like the PSP in that way).
Oh, and for my own response voting wise, it does look good enough to purchase, I'll probably find enough funds to get a DS around Xmas anyway.

DSi are only region locked with DLC, not with game cards.

My DS Lite will be, either way, satisfying.
... Except my mom lost it.
But it'll turn up someday... The main decision is whether to get "Dearly Stars" as my first iM@S game.
Honestly, it's not like it's my viriginity or something, and yet I'm still somewhat anxious -_-;

DO IT

Ask your mom to pay for it and a new DS.

Good end.

I plan on buying it once I finish Missing Moon for the PSP. (I just ordered it so it might be a while before it comes in ;_;)

Also, if any other 2nd Vision games come out I will have to get them as well. :3

Well, I do want to play Dearly Stars, but I'll probably just borrow it from one of my relatives, since he's planning to buy Dearly Stars for himself. Saves me money that way XD

But I'm definitely not planning to get the PS3 IM@S game. I don't have a PS3 ;_;

They don't, DSi games however do.

I don't think it is. I imported Phantasy Star Zero for the Nintendo DS and it supports DSi specific functions as well, and it plays fine on my American DS Lite. I think the region locking only works if you are playing a Japanese DS game on an American DSi or vise versa. Although I'm not 100% certain on that claim yet. The only DSi exclusive games I've seen were DSi Ware software.

Phantasy Star Zero is a normal DS game, all normal DS games are region free.
You're thinking of the DSiWare downloadable minigame.

Ah, okay, but isn't Dearly Stars in the same casing and everything as other standard DS games? All the box art I've seen has had Nintendo DS written on it and not Nintendo DSi. I haven't seen any physical games that indicate that it is for the Nintendo DSi only, which makes it pretty confusing to consumers. -_-

Post by: Drunken Watermelon on August 12, 2009, 06:06:25 am
Indeed the cartridge looks the same, however the DSi features only activate on a DSi.

The game should still work on a normal DS regardless of region.

I probably am going to pick up im@s DS at some point though I can justify paying 40 quid for a handheld game while studying at university so I'll probably buy it when its cheaper. 

As for the other 2nd vision games if there a sequels to the original or L4U!! then Im getting them because I really enjoyed them...I just hope they use L.O.B.M as a song...and implement 4 or 5 person units....though I can't image what the final polycount of that would be...

It would be cool to see that :D but I don't think they'd do it for all 16 original songs, all the MA songs, and etc.
Maybe some new songs should have that ability XD Presenting LOBM...quintet version!
