Never got the DS game. Do you know if they are still selling it?

I don't have one, but I know from those who did play, that it still works stand alone, but the server to connect to other players was taken down by Konami (it's their game). That server was gone long before regular GoPets closed, actually. GoPets DS is still listed at Amazon as in stock.

I saw some on Ebay, but I got mine in Gamestop when Gopets was still running.
Yeah I just now got mine connected to WiFi, and when I tried it it just tells me its connecting to the server, please wait. Haha its still doing that on my desk, I'm waiting for a miracle. Maybe because it has no back button at this point.

I just started playing mine yesterday because I am having so much GoPets withdrawals!

Maybe if we bug Konami enough they will reestablish a server for it. I have the game, but the best part was being able to visit friends. I haven't played it since they took down the server.

I have never tried that, before we got a new router (I think thats what is is) it was nearly impossible xD But is it just where you go wireless with a friend that has a DS next to you? Or is it actually like the old gopets where it was lots of different people?

You could play with people on the other side of the world. It even used the old IKU system so you could chat with people that didn't speak the same language as you.

:B Oh, I am tempted to order one off Amazon now if they still have it in stock. Too bad I don't have a DS.

Chiswick, you can get a DS Lite for cheap/used (under $100) if you are not interested in the extras that the DSi carries such as camera and microphone and the ability to download games wirelessly from Nintendo's DSiWare shop.
http://www.nintendodsi.com/meet-dsi.jsp

The DS Lite is solely for playing DS and Game Boy Advance games. (Although there is a cartridge that allows you to browse on the internet, but I heard that it wasn't worth the cost of purchase, and to use free homebrew versions instead.)
http://www.nintendodsi.com/meet-dslite.jsp

The Nintendo DS is not just for children. Lots of adults play it as well, and Nintendo seems to be trying to expand their target to include adults with some of the "games" they have come out with such as Cookbooks and Fitness Training (not to mention the Wii).

Amazon Thread: DS for Adults II:
http://www.amazon.com/tag/nintendo%20ds/forum/ref=cm_cd_dp_rft_tft_tp?_encoding=UTF8&cdForum=Fx278FB01LA8A96&cdThread=Tx48QLD00JBIQM

Examples: America's Test Kitchen: Let's Get Cooking, Personal Trainer: Cooking , Gourmet Chef: Cook Your Way To Fame, My Weight Loss Coach, Jillian Michaels Fitness Ultimatum 2010, Personal Trainer: Walking, Personal Fitness Women, Let's Pilates, Personal Fitness Men, Let's Yoga

You can also download free, homebrew games if you purchase a R4 card for the DS. Homebrews are not just games but also things like planners, to-do lists, drawing pad, notepads, and e-book readers. I haven't found a homebrew e-book reader that is particularly sophisticated though so I prefer to just read using 100 Classic Book Collection for the DS (which I confess I illegally downloaded a couple of years ago *sheepish*).

I think many adults like to play with the DS on their commutes, when recuperating from illness or surgery (or just poor in health), or when waiting in doctors' offices. I myself play on my commutes when I am not reading.

To try out games (legally), you can rent them from GameFly: http://www.gamefly.com/

Video Game stores such as GameStop allows you to return a game after a few days so you can also try out games that way.

Thanks for the information, niquae! I need to focus right now since exams are happening but I'll go shopping once it's over... Gonna see if I can get a copy of GoPets first though.
