DS corner

The idea of creating a thread containing all infos, recommendations & reviews of DS games was roaming around my mind for quite some time. And since we've got couple of members owning it Ill give it a shot.

So my proposal is : lets make this thread a DS corner. Lets discuss which games are worth buying and which are not. Ill try to give as many insights on games I've already had played by myself.

Here are some older threads about DS games from forum :

Pokemon - focused mainly on gen IV and upcoming gen V games.

Castlevania - sth for jumping/fighting/collecting stuff fans

Fire Emblem - tactical rpg

Advance Wars - another tactical game. Gotta try it as it similar to FF tactics

Not much of it though...

I hope it will provide us with some useful comments. Dont be shy with giving your opinion. Cheers

+ I cannot link threads with Dragon Quest games. Probably mine net have issues

+100 for Pokemon. ^_^

For another good RPG series of the Japanese variety, I recommend the Dragon Quest remakes that have been leaking into the DS, as well as DQIX which is a DS exclusive.

If you're a fan of the monster collecting subgenre (well I know YOU are Arcax, but I'm aiming this at the forum in general), then you might be interested in Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker. I was a bit underwhelmed, but that's because I had played Dragon Warrior Monsters 2 beforehand (Dragon Quest used to be known as Dragon Warrior in the Western world due to copyright issues), and DWM 2 > DQM:J, but that's just me.

I'll post as I remember more good games.

My 1st game - having a time travel to childhood with a refreshed version of Pokemon Gold/Silver/Crystal - Pokemon SoulSilver.

It can be a good position for those rock/paper/scissors fans, but its a rock which follows you and have 'feelings', paper using 'Hyper Beam' and scissor that can evolve

Heh, being 20 and having Pokemon game instead of a girlfriend is pretty... erm...fun! (well as long as youre not thinking about having kids) And thanks to this one you will discover that hanging out with a Pokewalker isnt as bad as it sounds

Basically its a Pokemon Crystal for Gameboy Color supported by some fresh stuff - mainly monsters from generations III and IV, battle moves, minigames (pokeathlon) and much more details which makes it perfect for old veterans of the series and newbies.

The whole system is based on a turn-based battle between two to four monsters which can be found all over the Johto and Kanto regions, but I dont have to describe it It literally hasnt got a plot. To put it short - youre gathering a team of 6 creatures on your road to become the best trainer of Indigo League since Johto still hasnt been provided with its own. Meeting new trainers, collecting rare items, beating up bad guys trying to restore their organisation to former glory and chasing legendary, unique Pokemons.

Theres a small device which I mentioned before that stores your selected Pokemon so you can take it on a date or...erm... walk... It becomes more friendly as you gain special Watt points unlocking new areas to visit or catching rare pokes.

I felt really nostalgic about this one. Obviously it lacks the special charm of older installment, but with Pokemon White and Black just behind the corner I guess its a must position since I bet there will be some way to transfer your team to gen V games.

On a side note Ive just noticed its not suitable for <18 gamers since authors wanted to put an innuendo here and there...


Next one : Children of Mana. An adventure/RPG

EDIT : Ah damn you Winter!
