Who's got one, seems like everywhere I go I see kids playing on one, I've had mine since the lite launched, I enjoy it a lot, from Brain Age, to Contra DS, and Mario Kart, and especially the New Super Mario Bros. Just picked up 3 games today at TRU, them having a Buy 2 get 3rd free this week. Got Guitar Hero On Tour, The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, and CrossworDS. The lady at the register actually didn't ring it up correctly, she rang up CrossworDS twice, instead of ringing up Zelda, so I got all 3 for $15 cheaper than I should have gotten then....

I have one. Currently the games I have are Brain Age 2, Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, and Spiderman Friend or Foe.

What I have played the most of though is TMNT for gba. :)

I have one as well. I prefer it over my Wii honestly.

Bought Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin and Etrian Odyssey II, but I'm currently playing the Phantom Hourglass. I just recently completed Hotel Dusk (great game by the way) and Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings (Not so good)

I just ordered Electroplankton and a couple of games that you can't get stateside.

I have too many games to list. Some of them are still unopened. When I find them for cheap I buy droves of games.

There is both an original DS and a DS Lite floating around here. The DS games I know we own off the top of my head are Mario & Luigi: Partners In Time, Pokemon: Pearl Version, The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, New Super Mario Bros., Lost in Blue, and Nintendogs (two or three different versions). There are others, but I'd have to go look. As far as upcoming DS games go, I'd say the DS exclusive Dragon Quest IX from the "Dragon Quest" franchise (formerly known as the "Dragon Warrior" franchise in the US) is probably the most anticipated one my brothers are looking at buying.

I bought a DS last year and really enjoy the system. I have Nintendogs (one version, but I'm not a huge virtual pet guy, so I don't play it much), Animal Crossing, Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, Brain Age and Rune Factory (which has quickly become on of my all-time favorite games).

Thats another one we have, Animal Crossing: Wild World. I'd direct you to the link in my sig to see what else we have, but I haven't updated it in a while. JBF and my other siblings seem to think its funny to hide all their game purchases and play them when I'm not around just so I can't put them on the list. :cross-eye

I don't own a DS, but my 8 yo niece is currently visiting and she has one. I have been playing it quite a bit. She just purchased it a couple of weeks ago and she only has a couple of games, something where she takes care of a dog (maybe NintendoDogs? I know she has a Chiwawa), and then Mario Kart. I have been playing Mario Kart daily and I think it is awesome! I might prefer that version of MK, to the Wii also. The graphics aren't too shabby either; not as good as the Wii, but they don't look too far off either. I am impressed. Seems like a pretty sweet little system.


As many of you probably know, I have a PSP, and I've been neglecting it for some time now. :(

Trade it in towards a DS. I imagine the trade value of it plus your games would help offset a good bit of the cost.

I bought the Simpsons game for DS earlier tonight. It has some exclusive features and mini-games that the console versions do not have, and for 20 bucks it was a good buy.

I heard that Nintendo is redesigning the DS again. Anybody have any idea what sort of evolution this is going to be?

It's supposed to become a widescreen DS. Basically a regular DS lite with a bigger screen. The down side to that is that nintendo sounds like they will get rid of their Game Boy Advance slot.

I heard of this as well. It isn't an entire loss if they lose the GBA slot though. While it'll cost you to re-buy stuff you already own in GBA cartrtidge form, it has been said that Virtual Console emulation (like on the Wii) is also supposedly in the works in some form for the DS regarding GB, GBC, and GBA games.

I bought a refurished one a few weeks ago as my buddy got me addicted to CROSSWORDS. I was lucky enough to get an older one (the fatty) and i'm happy as hell cos the lites feel too, well lite, and with my gorilla hands, i was afraid i'd break it.

But I only have crosswords right now. I was thinking about getting Flash focus. :thumbsup:

I've really been getting into playing mine a lot more lately, I gave my white DS to my preggo sister a few months back while she was pregnant and she loves it, so I ended up getting a new Cobalt/Black one and it looks really slick. :thumbsup:

Recent titles I've picked up and been playing lately, Dragon Quest IV(got V but haven't finished IV), Final Fantsy III, IV, Scribblenauts, and the new Professor Layton game. I let a buddy at work borrow that since he lent me the first Layton to get through. I'd like to pick up the new Mario & Luigi 3 game.....anyone have an extra copy they'd be looking to get rid of of Mario & Lugi 2? LM?

I'm playing Tingle's Rosey Rupeeland, and Elite Beat Agents. Don't let the really dumb title fool ya, Tingle is a great game - assuming you liked Zelda that is.

I bought Scribblenauts as well. Played it for just a bit and decided to put it down before I got too addicted to it. This is one of the most original titles I've seen in a long time. I can't believe how many words the game knows. Truly mind blowing that so much content can be stored on such a small cartridge.

Also bought Devil Survivor and its a b to play. Again I had to put that one down too.

The one I'm really looking forward to is Ghostwire which is for the DSi and uses the camera.

I really want Deathnote: Kira's game to come stateside. I mean Naruto and Bleach are getting plenty of love so why not Deathnote?
