Thanks
This is a bit belated, but I just wanna thank khoerling & tidegear for showing up last Sunday Saturday to the meet. It was cool to have a 4-person meet for once. Sorry it was so brief. Jon, who grew up in Chicago, couldn't handle this extreme SoCal Winter we're having (he can get his own damn ride next time) and I had a prior engagement....which was cancelled at the last second. Grrrrr.

Anybody have any recommendations on when/where to host the next meet?

This Horse Ain't Dead Yet!
Anybody down to meet-up at Cafe Ruba this Sunday around 5-ish for a good `ol fashioned DS Meet? I'll be there regardless, so let me know!

Also, I've gotta get this off my chest, there are some people in this community that have never shown any interest in showing up for a meet beyond clicking the "add community" link on the info page. If you're not ever going to show, or dare I say it, arrange your own.....why did you join? I won't ban you or anything, but it just seems really silly to me.

Meet-Up
So uhhh....I guess I flaked out on my own community about setting the meet-up time. So how about Sunday at 5pm? What's that coffee shop off of Newport that used to be Rock n' Java and Grasshopper and 40 other names. Right next to Condom Revolution? That one!

Sorry if it's too soon.

Anime Expo 2005!
Not to steal egonix's thunder or anything from his post a few minutes ago, but Anime Expo is coming July 1st~4th to Anaheim again (and I'm sure at least some of you DS-ers are interested in that general realm of Japanese culture), so like. Is anybody planning on going? There could be another DS meet-up there, and it'll be jolly good fun, and such!

I'll be there all four days sitting around in the artist alley, so if there's going to be any multiplay going on there, I'll most likely be there?

Just a reminder...
June 21st - Tuesday - DS Meet up @ Diedrich's Coffee in Lake Forest On Lake Forest & Muirlands at about 7pm.

Diedrich's Coffee
22621 Lake Forest Dr
Lake Forest, CA (Map)
(949) 837-4555

I was thinking Natale's in Huntington, but they don’t' have any big tables outside and we'd annoy the piss out of all their customers. Diedrich's in Lake Forest however is choc-full of big tables and has lots of chairs. Should be pretty accommodating.

If anybody has any problems with that, let me know and I'll see what we can do.

Upcoming Releases:
Jun 13 - GoldenEye: Rogue Agent - Electronic Arts
Jun 13 - Kirby: Canvas Curse - Nintendo
Jun 21 - Bomberman - Ubisoft (Day of meet)

Whatchoo Playin' Fool?
Can you guys please reply to this post and list the DS games that you own? I think it'd make future purchases a lot easier on all of us if we all knew what each other are playing.

What do I have? Glad you asked voice in my head.
  • Metroid Prime Hunters Demo (Multi-Cart)
  • Super Mario 64 DS (Single-Cart)
  • Star Wars Episode III (Multi-Cart)
  • Mr. Driller Spirits (American) (Single-Cart)
  • GoldenEye: Rouge Agent (Single/Multi-Cart)
Oh and uhm....I'm thinking it's time for another meet-up. This time, June 21st - A Tuesday. Location has yet to be specified. Probably another coffee shop.

E3
I totally didn't expect any of the nintendo madness that i saw at E3. There were TONS of people that brought their DS' with them and plopped down by the demo tower and were playing... like crazy! i was one of them but i was unable to get a successful download.

Here are some photos!Collapse )

I'm going back tomorrow so hopefully i will get better photos and more play time.

Dude, you guys! You all missed out. The meetup was awesome. Although, for some reason, Cyrano's closes at 8pm now. What kind of coffee shop closes that early? It defeats the purpose of drinking coffee!! We moved it to another location, but my ex-g/f was there, making that place off limits for any kind of function until the end of time.

So now, I'm thinking Natale's Coffee on Warner Blvd in Huntington Beach. I'll post the address for it later when I land a date to do this again.

I'd like to thank tidegear for coming out and pretty much making the evening with all of his games. Yoshi Touch n' Go and Mr. Driller (jpn version) were pretty fun. I cannot friggin' wait until Nintendo Revolution hits the states and we start meeting up at somebody's crib. We'll take on other Local DS Communities. That probably means we'll have to come up with a gang name.

Ahhhh!!! Too much to look forward too.

brokemeinhalf, FIND YOUR DS! FIND METROID!

Everybody else - Spread the propoganda! Tell your friends with Nintendo Dual Screens to join this community or at least show up to our meets!! Tell your friends w/o Nintendo Dual Screens to buy one!!

Let's do this.
Aight. I started this community for a reason damnit!

This is your 1 week notice.

I'm open to suggestions of cool places to go. I know we've got people that live in Orange, Mission Viejo, Fountian Valley, Long Beach, and Santiago Canyon. Personally, I think a coffee shop would be cool. Other's might think a pool hall or The Spectrum might be better. But since I'm the moderator, I've gotta step up and make some desicions for y'all. So unless ONE person speaks up and suggests a place...

The Orange County Chapter of Nintendo Dual Screeners shall meet up at Cyrano's Coffee House on May 17th.

The address is as follows....

Cyrano's Coffee House
7446 E Chapman Ave.
Orange, CA 92869

Phone: (714) 289-1031

If you can't make this one, nds_la is planning a meet-up for June 3rd. More than likely at a bowling alley or a taco stand ("Yeah, you heard me. A taco stand.") because of the beer factor. Which is a mighty fine factor indeed.

A word from your moderator....
Ok, we had about 3 people last night. Not what we expected, but we're not about to let a last minute gathering get us down.

First off, the Metroid maps are pretty friggin' huge. I did a 1-On-1 match and it took us awhile to find each other.

I also had a chance to play some games I havn't seen before. Feel the magic is freakin' weird, but fun. :)

Anyhoo, I think we should schedule meet ups for every other week. Get a regular thing going. How do Tuesday Nights work for everybody? Wednesday Nights?

And if it's cool with everybody else, I think a Diedrich's would work out perfectly.

Coffee + Cool Summer Nights on a patio + Nintendo DS = Good Times

Holla Back

hello from LA
hi. I just created the nds_la. I spend a lot of time in the OC during the summer. So I thought i'd join this community too. I know that a lot of gamers will commute between counties without any thought. So there is plenty of room for us all.

I'm a veteran of the LAN Party, pre-broadband, scene. So i'm experienced hosting and running multi-player events. I'm also a fair diplomat when it comes to talking to bars, coffeeshops & restaraunts in letting us have parties at their locations. So, yeah. We're here to game, and with all these cool games coming out in the next few months, it's gonna be great. I'm happy to be at the start of it all. I'll be encouraging my OC friends to join this group, I hope you folks can do the same for me.
