    "WHAAAAAT???"

    I picked one up Yesterday... No games yet, though I do have some SP games to play on it still.

    I was looking on IGN for some good RPGS, but any suggestions would be great, outside of the Final Fantasy recommendations.

    And I do plan on getting FFIV. Zelda will probably be my first game, even though i have to get used to controlling Link with the same tool I used to do homework when I was in school.

    The World Ends With You.

    THAT IS ALL.

    You must pick up New Super Mario. Not an RPG, but one of the best games for the system.

    Saw that one at Gamestop, and I've played that one before. That is definitely one on my list.

    Congrats on the purchase. I just purchased a new DS myself. My recommendations on DS games are both Castlevanies, Trauma Center, Hotel Dusk, Sonic Rush (it's kind of like an old Sonic), and Luminous Arc for the RPGness.

    My cousin has Hotel Dusk, and I borrowed it from him. That one was a sellin point.

    Thanks... I look like a Lobster... Burned up at the beach.

    Trace Memory is very short but remains my most memorable experience with a DS game even now (and I bought a couple of months after the DS first came out). If you liked Hotel Dusk, you'd like Trace Memory (same style of game, made by the same company).

    RPG's?
    Zelda's Phantom Hourglass was A+ along with Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga.

    If you're into the turn-based strategy stuff, the Advance Wars series is a work of art.

    Yeah, Zelda is one of the first titles I'm looking to get. Also, I was looking at Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles. Any thoughts on that one?

    I'm also very much looking forward to Dragon Quest 4.

    And I loved Mario and Luigi for SP. Lot's of games to catch up on it seems.

    I'm actually a pretty big fan of the Phoenix Wrigt series. The cases are interesting and the writing is funny enough to have made me laugh out loud on more than one occasion!

    Mega Man ZX and advent
    The world ends with you as mentioned earlier
    Ninja Gaiden dragon sword
    both castlevania games
    I'd say advance wars days of ruin
    the bleach game for the ds is a fun fighter
    heard good things about the new final fantasy tactics
    space invaders extreme is also quite good
    about all I can think of now

    Thanks for the suggestions. I'm really glad I finally bought it, and I'm looking forward to wasting a lot of valuable time with this new little toy.

    Actually I have heard a LOT of great things about Advanced wars. Oh, and I have to pick up Mario Kart as well.

    No worries on that one. Aside from actually enjoying the collecting of cover art and packaging of games, I don't even use gametap because I like owning my games. I do rent them to try them....

    oh and I do have NES games on my PC, but I have a suitcase full of the cartridge counterparts, or have owned them at one point.

    and that is about the only area that I can say I'm clean ;)

    Think of the children! Watch the language.

    Edit* Besides you jumped to the conclusion that I pirate games, I merely use it as a trying out service(a lot of crap out there) and I always buy the game if I like it.
