What no mention of either Castlevania games!! Tsk, tsk, tsk!!
I highly recommend either of the Castlevania games, very fun and in depth game that will keep you entertained for hours.
Yeah, they're on my list, but to be honest, I'll probably never get around to playing them. I think I'm all Castlevania'd out.
If you can find it Trauma Center is one hell of a game for the DS, and makes excellent use of the touch screen! The graphics are pretty good, and the storyline keeps you quite entertained between surgeries!! If you can't find it, just wait for the new one.
Yeah, that's on my list too, but it's also out for the Wii, and "plenty of stuff to play on the DS" plus "not a whole lot to play on the Wii" means that if I ever get it, I'll probably get the Wii version instead.
I would not suggest Cooking Mama, not as fun as I thought it would be! Had they been real recipes that you could learn step by step, then perhaps, but it's just simple repetitive tasks to complete the recipes!
The demo I played didn't do a whole hell of a lot for me.
It is definately the better of the three portable systems out there!
Okay, DS and PSP, I got, but what's the third? GBA? I don't even really count that anymore. I know they're still selling a ton of them, but is Nintendo really even supporting it these days? I think their focus has shifted entirely over to the DS side of things. . .
Anyway, looking over EB's list of upcoming games
, here's what I'm most-interested in:
Hotel Dusk: Room 215 (Jan. 22)
Wario: Master of Disguise (Mar. 5)
DK: King of Swing (Mar. 30)
And then, of course, there's Zelda--which they're listing for June 1, but I've seen it listed elsewhere for an October release. I'm assuming the latter.
But anyway, thanks for the recommendations.
What's the battery life on this thing?
According to Wikipedia
, between five and seven hours on the brightest setting, and between twelve and sixteen on the lowest. I always use the brightest setting, and five-to-seven hours seems about right.
