NYC - DS Multiplay, Sat January 29th

The votes have been tallied and we have 44 votes for Saturday, January 29th. Those are some big numbers - and if the sulky 34 people who voted for Friday magnanamously attend on Saturday too... that's 5 arenas of 16 player Metroid frag-o-mania. I'm not even calculating in the after-christmas DS attendance boost that we'll get. That's right - from 7-9PM the big DS multiplay at a bar called:

Alright - we've got a perfect new location for the DS Multiplay tomorrow. Slainte Bar & Lounge! It's huge, it's clean and the lighting is low. There are 2 for 1 drinks until 8PM so arrive a little early to "power up" with some pints. We're bumping the event up an hour from 8 to 7PM for this very purpose...


304 Bowery NYC 10012
(at 1st street)
Tel: 212 253 7030

* B, D, F, V to Broadway-Lafayette Street
* 6 to Bleeker Street

Here's pictures of the place. This place is ideal and they're happy to have us, so show up, bring all your DS games and let's have a great multiplay.

So bring all your games and come for a relaxed and jovial time with friendly folks. Check out the gallerys of the past multiplays here and here. And don't forget to RSVP in the comments field so everyone can see who's coming. Organize yourselves, you deadbeats.

I just found this site from livejournal. I live in manhattan. Glad to see there's a group like this. I havent played that much multiplayer (especially metroid) and im looking forward to some. Only games I have are mario and metroid. I'll try my best to go to this event..maybe even bring some friends. Look out for the tall hispanic guy lol. Oh, and my name is Jeff.

Dammit, I want to come but I'm in PA and it's the same day as a local Winter-een-mas ( LAN party. Maybe I'll be able to make it to the next one :-(

Ok I know this isn't really the right place, and I'm in a hurry, but it might get to the right person this way.

Nintendo is taking preorders on the PlayYan on NoJ's website, "The device will only be available through Nintendo's official site, at two price points - the device alone for 5,000 yen ($49) or bundled with Panasonic MediaStage 4.2, a video compressing software, for 6,000 yen ($59)." Feb 21 release. if it's region free like everything else, could it be used here? Especially for modding somehow? Gotta love SD.

The above comment is the reason why TMG should have a mini forum. Nothing huge, but helpful. -SilentK

SN - I don't know about the Play-Yan, but I'm getting the GBA Movie Player from Lik-sang. It plays movies, music, FC games and e-books on your GBA or Nintendo DS. Plus it comes with the software needed to make the appropriate videos, uses Compact Flash cards, is upgradable (firmware and software) and can multi-task (listen to music while reading an e-book). At first I was sketchy about it until I saw them demo it on G4TechTV and it looked incredibly clear and even the sound came across nicely. My CF card just arrived today, the rest should arrive later this week or beginning of next. I just have to wait for my DS to get back from Nintendo (screen repair) and then I'll let ya know how it works out.

Oh yeah, the movie player is only $25 US with software but no flash card. I got a 512 CF from Newegg for $34 this week so I got the card, the player and the software for about the same price as the Play-Yan w/software. Hope this helps.

I can't wait for the day when I come here and there is a link to the download for the program that will allow me to play DS over my Wifi...
