Recommended Posts

  • Are you going to have headphones? Elite Beat Agents and Rhythm Heaven are SO GOOD.
  • Ace Attorney series, of course.
  • I heard Ghost Trick was good?
  • Also 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors?
  • Okamiden :3
  • I actually saw Korg DS-10+ at my local GameStop! Pretty fun to mess around with.

You need to get a hold of Radiant Historia, ASAP!! :P

It was sold out at every store within a 1hr radius of my house. Had to buy it off amazon.

I just got Elite Beat Agents for three bucks. I take it you're saying that's three bucks well spent?

Holy CRAP, why didn't I rec this in my first post in this thread!

This game is magnificent. In fact, if I was forced to come up with a "top 5 games ever" list, it would make it for sure. It might be tough to find in stores though.

You no doubt have more than enough to last you a few long flights, but I'd like to add Art Style: Box Life to the DSiWare listing. It has two modes of play where the main goal is to create boxes by cutting out and folding paper. One mode has you earn money by boxing up bombs and minimizing wasted paper in order to earn money to decorate an isometric pixel plot of land on the title screen with new homes, new cars and pets. Surprisingly addictive.

99% of these aren't available at my local Gamestops, unfortunately. I did also pick up Phantom Hourglass today (as I was looking for a Zelda game!)

Yeah, I'm noticing that there's quite a few games that Gamestop rarely stocks - if you have time perhaps you should go the good ol' e-bay/Amazon route?

I had some good luck last time I went used-game hunting. I was specifically looking for Rune Factory 3 and found it at the only GameStop I cared to look into. Hecks yeah.

I don't have time, unfortunately. I'm leaving in two days!

You do know that WHAT DID I DO TO DESERVE THIS, MY LORD? itself is the sequel to HOLY INVASION OF PRIVACY, BADMAN!, right?

That's not exactly true. The full title of the first game was originally Holy Invasion of Privacy, Badman!: What Did I Do to Deserve This? Also, NIS revised the name of the first game after the second one was localized to reflect the original Japanese title, hence What Did I Do to Deserve This, My Lord!? 2....

even more not exactly true, as the original title was actually Holy Invasion of Privacy, Batman!: What Did I Do to Deserve This.

Interesting. I didn't realize that the original localization actually went that far to make the joke.

Anyway, back on topic - play da dang games, y'all.

Has Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia been Mentioned yet? Super, awesome, awesome, amazing and awesome all describe this. I love the weapon system, there's action galore, and the music is awesome. It's crazy hard, though (Normal is hard initially; Hard mode is insane unless you grind a bit.... I haven't even bothered with max lv. 1 hard mode, sounds impossible...). And yes, I did mean to use three awesome's to describe it. It's the best Castlevania on the system , in my opinion. it did feel a bit short once I beat it, though, even with the extra areas (cavern and training grounds).

EDIT:

~ Mega Man Zero series. Really fun sidescrollers, not overly long, but still have a good amount of game time and development in them. As always, fantastic music. Best to start from the beginning with #1, they're all really good.

What he said, too. I feel it's definitely a jump up in the action from the X-series. :-D I thought some of the music in the first one was a bit weak, but that's not an issue. I also feel the series really picks up on the second storywise. It's a steal for all four games in the collection on the DS. Also, the two Mega Man ZX's are pretty good, just a bit different.

He already has all the Castlevanias, so he's probably long aware of how stupid awesome Ecclesia is. (I just finished leveling Shanoa up to 255 and maxing out her elemental attributes so I can kill Dracula in 3 hits; time for playthrough #4)
