    I'm planning on getting a DS latter this week or early next week. Can you recommend some good games for me to get? Here are the ones I already plan to get.


    Nintendogs (not sure which one yet)
    Trauma Center
    Pheonix Wright: Ace Attorney (Objection!!)
    Brain Age
    Clubhouse Games
    Golden Nugget Casino Games
    Warioware Touched
    Elite Beat Agents (maybe...)
    Naurto (Maybe..)
    Final Fantasy III (probably..)
    Yu-Gi-Oh (maybe)


    I'm not a big Castlevania guy so I'll probably pass on it..

    By Yu-Gi-Oh!, I assume you're referring to Nightmare Troubadour. IF so, get it-it's really faithful to the card game and a lot of fun.


    "Must-Have" games include-

    *New Super Mario Bros. FANTASTIC update on a classic.

    *Metroid Prime Hunters. Tons of fun

    *Mario Kart. One of the greatest handheld adaptations!

    *Tetris DS is also a possibility.

    Personally, I also enjoy Sonic Rush, Viewtiful Joe: Double Trouble and Ultimate Spider-Man.

    Harvest Moon DS (if you liked every other HM title)
    Elite Beat Agents
    Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney
    Mario Kart DS
    Tatris DS
    Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time
    New Super Mario Bros.
    Super Mario 64 DS
    Meteos
    Meteos: Disney Edition (you play this one book style)
    Final Fantasy III
    Animal Crossing
    Sonic Rush
    Mario Vs. Donkey Kong 2: March of the Minis


    as for getting a hand on a DS might not be easy....i was looking for one for a X-Mas present but couldnt find one....Wal-Mart, 2x Targets, Fry's, Gamestop, EBX, and Best Buy were all out of DS (Lite or Original)....

    Do you have a Game Boy Advance? If not, there's a ton of good games to go back and get. The Super Mario Advance and Mario & Luigi games are Player's Choice titles now, I think.

    I don't have a GBA.. I did find one old game in my backpack I've had for a long time... The Lost Vikings!

    Basically I have a GBA SP for a long time. Then sold it (and almost all the games) to buy a DS when they first came out. After nothing came out for several months, I sold it and only had TLV cartridge.

    Right now I'm gonna focus more on getting DS games then going and getting lots of used GBA games later..

    QFT, its lightweight nostalgia fluff at best and not worth bothering with if you want something on the level of SMB3 or SMW.

    Congrats man. I have the 360 and all the recent gen systems, but that damn DS is the thing I play the most. There's just soo many good games for it and it helps they don't cost as much

    All we need now is a DS player. Even the crappy games are kinna fun (Dark Labyrinth)
    Im usually buried in Gamefaqs reviews trying to find the next game to buy lol

    Still haven't found a DS in stock.. I'm kinda pissed at EB. They have none in stock yet still have the display boxes out. I thought I had found one. Grabbed a box and got in line. A guy then told me they were out.. Then why the fuck do you still have the boxes on display yet don't have a damn sign or something?

    Oh well. Went hunting after work and picked up a Advance Wars DS for $10!

    as for DS, i was gonna do the same thing but i heard someone in line asked if there were any and they said no. so damn, i still need to get my little nieces one (for Christmas)...
