I just bought a Nintendo DS

Yeah, yesterday I decided to buy a DS Lite because I'm just sick of my PSP. I bought it along with the New Super Mario game, a bass fishing game, and Lego Star Wars II. I'm just wondering what else I should get for it. Anything else you think I should know about the system would be helpful too.

Hows that Lego Star Wars II?


Im going to get either Harvest Moon DS and Star Fox tomorrow, or that new mechassault that came out for it.

I would HIGHLY recommend Trauma Center. Its the most innovative title for that system.

Lost Magic is cool, especially online, and so is Tetris DS, which is much nicere than you would expect.

Advance Wars DS is really a "must have" as well.

I really like Point Blank DS, if you are familiar with that series.

I have about 25-30 games

It's fun. The camera and controls get kind of annoying, but you get used to it. I love all the customization and unlockables in it.

HMS looks fun. I'll probably be getting it soon.

I was considering buying one. Let me know if you think it's worth it, taking into consideration I'm not wealthy.

I would say it is completely worth it. I'm not wealthy either, I just happened to get some cash from my sisters and decided to take the plunge. I spent an hour and a half at EBGames making up my mind, but I decided "What the hey?" So far it is completely worth it, nothing better then sitting in bed at two in the morning playing a nice, long, RPG.

Advance Wars!

seriously, omfg, that game is seriously seriously addictive!

I let someone play it AND THEY FUCKIN' SAVED OVER MY FILE!

not only do I have to re-beat the game, I have to re-work on getting S-rank up until the battle where you first must use your two screens as two battlefields. Which isn't that far, but getting S-rank on every level between that is a bit of a hassle.

I'm gonna save up for a PS3 at launch

I got a $300 gift card from Safeway for being such a good employee that the card will cover the cost of the Wii.

Star Fox Command is a wonderful game to show what the DS can do control wise.

Metroid Hunters is a great FPS which uses the stylus excellently if not a bit confusing at first.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney is a lawyer adventure game that really is quite unique.

Also
Trauma Center: Under the Knife
Mario Kart DS
Sonic Rush
Castlevania Dawn of Sorrow

Games coming out that you should look into.
Contact - strange RPG
Kirby: Squeak Squad
Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass
Yoshi's Island 2
