Cleaning a Nintendo DS (9)

1 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2006-12-02 07:53 ID:aMybSPsM

I just got a free Nintendo DS from my friend who bought a DS lite a while ago and decided there was no reason to keep his regular DS. Only problem, the thing got hairspray or something sprayed on it and all the buttons are sticky. It's still playable, but it's kind of icky. What's the best way to clean the keys?

>>1 here, sorry.

As a new DS owner, I'm also at a loss as to what games/accessories to buy. Any advice is appreciated.

Not sure about cleaning but essential games are AW:DS, Castlevania, Elite Beat Agents, Kirby, Mario Kart, Meteos, Metroid, Super Mario, and Tetris.

I would imagine a swab or cloth lightly moistened with rubbing alcohol.

I'd also highly recommend Bust-a-Move. Seriously. The stylus controls are what the series has been waiting for these last 10 years. Also Sonic Rush, Magnetica/Puzzloop, Trauma Center and both Phoenix Wrights.

Oh, and I don't know which Kirby >>3 was talking about, but they're both pretty fun. Canvas Curse/Magical Paintbrush/whatever is probably better though, unless you're a big fan of oldschool Kirby.

If your friend has a DS you should try out his games too, see if you like them before committing to the purchase. Personally I wasn't that impressed by Meteos, and Trauma Center was incredibly uninteresting to me...naturally, your mileage may vary.

Also, I read somewhere that there's a Disney version of Meteos coming out that will have a sideways mode a la Brain Training.

I borrowed Phoenix Wright from him (I like it; are there any fan-translation projects for the other GBA games?) and I'm gonna get Tetris DS from him next time I see him.

I like the DS. It's not something I would have bought, myself, but now that I own one I definitely want to buy games for it.

Okay, dipshits. lern2intertube

If you have a DS, an R4 is a must. Just download roms, and put em on your micro SD, put micro SD in R4, play gaeymez.
