Wow even still with manuals, nice find!

Rai@lemmy.dbzer0.com on 30 May 14:48 collapse

At first I’m like “well my R4 has like every game”

Then I thought “oooOOOo manuals!”

imPastaSyndrome@lemm.ee on 30 May 12:37 next collapse

Oh no it’s all German! :)

Mandy@sh.itjust.works on 30 May 13:12 collapse

oh no, im austrian

violetraven@lemmy.blahaj.zone on 30 May 15:58 next collapse

Are you ok?

Mandy@sh.itjust.works on 30 May 16:02 collapse

well, i certainly am alive, i think, so that should count for something

imPastaSyndrome@lemm.ee on 30 May 16:04 collapse

Oh no watch out for kangaroos while you learn German. I know I know, watch out for Chamois though

I hate to tell you but Wii is retro too

Kolanaki@yiffit.net on 01 Jun 06:40 collapse

Just 2 more years and Playstation 3 will be retro, if the requirement is being 20 years or older.

can@sh.itjust.works on 30 May 14:15 collapse

Considering I received my first one nearly twenty years ago, yes

Bananobanza@lemmy.world on 30 May 12:49 next collapse

Wow, orcs and elves is actually a great find!

That and Fighting Fantasy where, perhaps, the best first person fantasy games on the system.

Mandy@sh.itjust.works on 30 May 13:11 collapse

yee, orcs and elves was the shit

DER HERR DER

  • An Ugly American
LaserTurboShark69@sh.itjust.works on 30 May 14:36 collapse

Dude what

shundi82@sh.itjust.works on 30 May 14:50 next collapse

I’ve got two theories as to what that poster was trying to say:

Der Herr Der = Durr Hurr Durr

Or:

Der Herr Der = reference to “Die Bart, Die”

But as to the real meaning: Der Herr Der Elemente = The Master Of Elements

Mandy@sh.itjust.works on 30 May 15:15 next collapse

this is like looking at a scholar, discovering new sacred texts, trying to explain it to a filthy commoner (like me), while the commoner stares blankly at the bewildered scholar trying to elborate

5oap10116@lemmy.world on 31 May 08:05 collapse

Yeah so Der Herr Der is master/lord of the in German, and as an ugly American, I was making fun of how it sounds funny. Sucks to explain such a simple joke…

LaserTurboShark69@sh.itjust.works on 31 May 15:30 collapse

Ah I see now, I didn’t read the subtitle of the avatar game lol. I thought you were leaving a weird angry comment

ArcaneSlime@lemmy.dbzer0.com on 30 May 16:09 collapse

It’s euro-peen for “ableism + america bad.”

OH but even better these games appear to be PAL, meaning decidedly not American. Guessing Germany from the German text. So hurr durr right back to him.

systemglitch@lemmy.world on 30 May 14:25 next collapse

I’d probably just throw them away if they were mind and I ran across them.

otp@sh.itjust.works on 30 May 15:12 next collapse

…why? Is filling up landfills your hobby or something?

Mandy@sh.itjust.works on 30 May 15:14 collapse

who peed in your cheerios my man? why would you throw them away like that for literally any reason?

systemglitch@lemmy.world on 01 Jun 06:25 collapse

Nothing malicious, I just don’t find value in them when I factor in trying to sell them locally.

JackGreenEarth@lemm.ee on 30 May 15:28 next collapse

There’s a Avatar game? Can I get the ROM for Lemuroid?

Mandy@sh.itjust.works on 30 May 15:31 next collapse

actually, there is even more, gba, ps2, choose your platform and youll find one

JackGreenEarth@lemm.ee on 30 May 15:32 collapse

Which is the one you got? Which has the best features?

piyuv@lemmy.world on 30 May 15:40 collapse

Tons but none of them are good, sadly. Low quality cash grabs

DoucheBagMcSwag@lemmy.dbzer0.com on 30 May 17:43 next collapse

Orcs and Elves was a fun romp. It was hilarious when you tried to rip the dragon off instead of properly haggling and she just straight up fucking burns you

Mandy@sh.itjust.works on 30 May 17:47 collapse

man, i wish i knew dungeon crawlers better, id love to play more quaints ones like that

DoucheBagMcSwag@lemmy.dbzer0.com on 30 May 20:02 collapse

In terms of Orcs and Elves? Unique.

There was fighting fantasy, Etrian Odyssey, The Dark Spire and …deep labyrinth (if you want to get REALLY niche)

Edit: Maze of fate. Another niche as hell one

Mandy@sh.itjust.works on 30 May 20:10 collapse

Ill check em out, thanks

But let me elaborate what I meant still

The game never took itself too seriously (drunken dwarfs ghosts are a good example)

The dragon bartering was super fun

Combat was simple but fun(im a smootbrain now, I like simpler stuff)

umbraroze@lemmy.world on 01 Jun 07:35 next collapse

Oh yeah, Orcs & Elves, one of my absolute favourite games for the DS!

Dark_Dragon@lemmy.dbzer0.com on 01 Jun 08:52 collapse

In the future. If we find current games. When booted up. “Failed to connect to server” and the game is good as dead.
