The Damned

Nintendo DS

Recommended Posts

Picked up Phantom Hourglass yesterday and I'm actually really enjoyed it so far. At first I was skeptical on the game being controlled via only the stylus but it translates better than I figured it would. I haven't had much to time to progress so far (I've only just reached the Isle of Ember to find Astrid), but I'm looking forward to what the game has to offer.

Also, has anyone heard tell of of

Dementium: The Ward? (Kotaku Link)

Developed by Renegade Kid it looks like we could get a decent horror genre of game on the DS. Maybe it could even make up for the mediocrity that was Touch the Dead?

So, Fire Emblem DS. Anyone else excited?

Oh my God, this is wonderful! I had given up home for Fire Emblem DS because it had been so long. I figured they would have done this years ago!

I wonder what setting it will be in. I wonder if this be the beginning of a whole new story line, or will this be a continuation of a previous story, such as FE8, the Sacred Stones?

P.S.: this post was written on my Wii via USB keyboard.

Fire Emblem DS? That sounds ridiculously awesome! The only bad thing is that it took them so long. Now I have two ridiculously awesome stratRPG timesinks on my DS (hoshigami does not count, I'm sorry. Nice try and all, but wow....)

Looks like a remake of the very first one. I'm excited since they never brought the first one to the US.

Here's a massive list of upcoming DS games.

*Really really long list*

What on earth prompted you to do this? If you have this much time on your hands, you could get a second job or something. Maybe then you'll be able to afford the massive amounts of great games coming out.

I guess considering how many games I want for the Wii, it's ok that there are only a few games for DS coming out by the end of this calendar year that appeal to me.

What on Earth prompted you to do that? Seriously, trolling is uncool.

That is a ton of games. Actually, probably a good few pounds, but besides the point. And a good few of them will actually be playable (here's to hoping Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games is). The new look for Advance Wars is really drawing me in. I liked the look of the old games too, but for some reason I like this look better. Maybe because it's slightly more realistic in it's portrayal of war? Iunno.

Front Mission is going to be great too. It's a classic. It looks more like a port with some enhancements, but that doesn't bother me - it's a good strategy game. Unlike the mediocre stuff that's already come out for DS, like Luminous Arc and, dare I say it or my throat will bleed, Hoshigami DS. How that game ever made it past the Playstation era I'll never know.

Dementium: The Ward looks like a really good survival horror experience for DS. The two horror-related games I own for DS are too cheesy to be considered scary (RE:DS and Touch The Dead). Seems both DS and PSP are attempting a survival horror game each (PSP's got Silent Hill Origins). Here's to hoping the results are good!

It, and maybe Zelda, are the only two games I am looking at getting for the rest of the year.

I'm hoping to get most or all of the following...

- Dementium: The Ward

- Mario & Sonic (Olympics)

- Tony Hawk's Proving Ground

- Lego Star Wars Complete Saga (please don't be buggy!)

- Cooking Mama 2

- Geometry Wars

- Mario Party DS

- Call of Duty: Modern Warfare

- Ninja Gaiden: Dragon Sword

sheesh, I need a 2nd job.

Score! I'm so happy for a new Advance Wars! 8O

It looks so fresh... I can't seem to ID the characters. But, I am too happy none the less, even if my old favorites aren't there, I'm sure to find new ones.

I think a few pages back people were getting all worried about the new style, but I actually kind of like the new look. It looks like Intelligent Systems has an idea or two of what they're actually doing with the new look and it still seems to manage being able to distinguish itself.

Fire Emblem DS looks like a winner in terms of its new art style too. Not as drastic as AW but it seems Intelligent Systems is going all across the board for getting rid of some of the softness.

@Brushfire2004: There's a new Ouendan coming out? Shit, when? I love those games. I'm just glad that I can call "hot-blooded attorney action" an actual genre due to Harvey Birdman's arrival. Thank God for Capcom picking up awesome licenses.

Shit, Fire Emblem DS looks pretty hot. Though really I don't see much of a difference, except that the screens I'm seeing look more realistic (read: brown).

@The Damned: Much the same - I'm looking forward to a few more titles scattered over this year and next, but I'm not going to buy absolutely everything. I refuse to buy a Zelda game out of the principle that at least three of my friends have bought it, and Zelda games are short - thus it's a good loaner title. That's how I got my mitts on, and finished, Twilight Princess.

Anyone available to help me with the Final Fantasy III mognet sidequest? I lost my copy of the game (or it was stolen by someone looking at our apartment before we moved out, I'm not sure; I lost a couple other games at the same time). I've gotten a new copy and want to get the stupid Mognet messaging done.

I'm at the earliest point in the game where I can access Mognet, and intend on making a permanent save as soon as I've sent 7 messages so I don't have to do this again if I restart. You can get around the one-hour limit for sending messages if you reset your DS clock, so what I'm hoping for is to hop on AIM/MSN with someone and alternate with them between sending messages and shutting off the DS to bump the clock up an hour and a bit to resend, so all 7 get done at once.

Anyone willing and able to help me out?
