Really? Nice.

#3 Posted by KaosAngel (13765 posts) -

It doesn't work...I went to almost every DS game that ends with "Z".

#4 Edited by xanavi (179 posts) -

Yeah, I don't think it's fully live yet. You can still view the quests though.
 
edit: It's live!

#5 Posted by CharlesAlanRatliff (5425 posts) -

Noooooooooooooo

#6 Posted by MooseyMcMan (11025 posts) -

Argh! Make it work GiantBomb crew! What's the point in letting us see the quest when it won't work!?!?!

#7 Posted by guthwulf (251 posts) -

But it's supposed to start today, right? At least the first one doesn't have a date on it and the second one starts at the 14th.

#8 Edited by AlwaysBeClothing (1470 posts) -

Edit: Quest is live
 
Franchise pagez are your friend, I only need to go to two franchise pages. 
HORRIBLE VAGUE HINTS
1. What do you call an animal you keep in your home
2. Rhymes with Rug Ratz 
3.  No No No, don't shake the ____z
 
Remember, go to the franchise page which lists all the games at the bottom

#9 Posted by Bigheart711 (1253 posts) -

It's not working at all! The Image for the quest isn't showing either. D:

#10 Edited by Toxin066 (3288 posts) -

I found one....it's a very equine game.
 
edit: complete!

#11 Posted by ShadowConqueror (3052 posts) -

Poop.
#12 Posted by Trace (3556 posts) -

X-TREMEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

#14 Posted by andymc1989 (95 posts) -

One down, eleven to go.

#15 Posted by guthwulf (251 posts) -

Yay I'm done. Also my brain hurts.

#16 Posted by ky326 (255 posts) -

Hint pleaze.

#17 Posted by MooseyMcMan (11025 posts) -

There's a bunch of games that don't seem to work for no reason other than the z word is in the middle or beginning, which I think it really lame.

#18 Posted by nick_verissimo (1385 posts) -

Cool...now I just need to do 11 more of these.  The last day should be pretty easy though :p

#19 Posted by DerekDanahy (875 posts) -

Missing one. Damn.

#20 Posted by Cincaid (2956 posts) -

Was really easy once I found the correct concept page. Think of concept, and read the quest description again. :)

#21 Edited by _k1_ (199 posts) -

There's a concept page for this, as well as franchise page for one of the most common offenders.

#22 Posted by DerekDanahy (875 posts) -
@CrazyChris: This helped thanks.
#23 Posted by MaFoLu (1858 posts) -

Just finished this. Was actually pretty easy considering you had to find 12 games, thank god DS gamez are so awezome, rightz?  ...z  
Right now, all I can think of is how stupid it looks when you replace s with z, and what a ridiculous number of DS games have done that.

#24 Posted by ShadowConqueror (3052 posts) -

Never again!
#25 Posted by ky326 (255 posts) -
@CrazyChris: Thanks dude!
#26 Posted by MisterMouse (3554 posts) -

haha that was a good quest!

#27 Edited by KaosAngel (13765 posts) -

...a lot of them don't trigger.  I had to use Wikipedia to get the entire list of DS games, and then manually scroll down to find other ones.

#28 Posted by chibacityblues (52 posts) -

Easy and reminds me of a feature request: filtering and sorting of those lists would be nice (not limited to the quests..)

#29 Posted by Tordah (2479 posts) -

Piece of cake!

#30 Posted by Xanth93 (485 posts) -

Not all of them are DS games. A Gameboy Advance game worked for me.

#31 Posted by OldGuy (1557 posts) -
#32 Posted by radar5 (160 posts) -
@AlwaysBeClothing:
Thanks for the tips
#33 Posted by xMrSunshine (360 posts) -

Completed. Holy fuck that was a lot of atrocious games -_-'

#34 Posted by RecSpec (3817 posts) -

Man, a lot of these didn't trigger that I thought would. 
 
Ended up going to Ubisoft's page and just go through all their games haha. 
 
Ironically this was the LAST of the 3 sets that I finished. Screened and Comic Vine's were easier compared to this.

#35 Posted by Legend (2659 posts) -

Done!

#36 Posted by CitizenKane (10506 posts) -

Got it!
 
Yeah, that concept and franchise pages definitely helped a lot.  Damn, there is a lot of shovelware crap on the DS.

#37 Posted by keithfreitag (70 posts) -
@AlwaysBeClothing:  I found Homie Rollerz and was like how the hell is this not one of them! I just finished this one too, and yes I was surprised at how many games each had in the franchise!
#38 Posted by MadeinFinland (839 posts) -

Omg. I just finished it, and I can't believe we classify those as video games. Like.. they are. just. wtf. 
 
Edit: Oh right, we call them "video gamez" not video games. That makes sense.

#39 Posted by VilhelmNielsen (1735 posts) -

I just saw a picture of a rodent on rollerskates. This quest was awesome!

#40 Posted by CrashRHCP (25 posts) -

Just finished, not hard after finding the right "concept"

#41 Posted by JJOR64 (18995 posts) -

Yep.  The concept is really Xtreme if you know what I mean.
#42 Posted by cowgod (51 posts) -

i consider myself less of a man for completing this quest.

#43 Posted by Xyber (292 posts) -

I can only get 7 gamez to work, I've gone through every game that ends with Z on the concept-page. D:

#44 Posted by DeF (4893 posts) -

this is really broken. once I found the xtremely subtly hinted at concept page it became easier but not even all DS games on that page worked ...
 
finally completed it though

#45 Posted by ZombiePie (5672 posts) -

Remember everyone you don't really complete this quest set until the 24th.

#46 Posted by MKHavoc (1307 posts) -

I'm stuck on 11 for some reason and am now going through the concept page for the third time.

#47 Posted by Xyber (292 posts) -

There we go, did all of them over again and now they worked. 

#48 Edited by MKHavoc (1307 posts) -

Finally got it.  My 12th one wasn't immediately obvious.

#49 Posted by xMP44x (2193 posts) -

That was quite tricky to complete until I found the concept page. Another suggestion is that you go to one of the pages of the biggest offending titles - you should be able to spot them very quickly due to the sheer number of them.

#50 Posted by Aetheldod (3584 posts) -
@MKHavoc:  Some of them are available for other systems as well
 
This quest ... infamy no wonder I hate casual "gamingz"
