Question, just out of personal curiosity, have you ever played and beat Final Fantasy 1 for the NES?
Just wondering what experience with the series people who are playing the newer ones actually have.
Never played it (I was 5 and my interests were soley mario), always hated FF but my bf got me onto Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: Ring of Fates, and apparently the new one is coming out at the end of march. yay!

And Flashy, is there really a gardening mama? oh man

Later this month. And Crafting Mama was announced today. No shit.

I actually want to play that Greys Anatomy game though. Even though i don't watch the show, apparently it's like a grosser version of Trauma Centre and I so love playing that on the bus and making people sick as I cut tumors out of people.

OK I think Chinatown Wars is the best game I've ever played on the DS. Brilliant. It may even be one of the better entries in the whole GTA series. I'm definitely having more fun with it than GTA4.

how did you get it to work, or did you pick up a new DS Rom card?
Yeah I picked up an Acekard2i for $14 off DealExtreme and it runs everything perfectly. They seem to have great support through their forums as well, and even have third-party developed firmware called AKAIO which works better than their own.

For the first time, I'm able to get the Korg DS to work - holy crap that thing is fun and I keep finding new depth in it. Memories of my old tracker days ;)

Electroplankton is also a fun, but pointless little affair. N+ is also really good and insanely addictive if you haven't tried it.

Is this FF game going to have some continuity with any others? Will I be lost if I haven't played a Final Fantasy game for any length of time since FF8?

no one playing their ds's these days or wot?!

finally got myself a TF card
a TTDS
seems to be working very well
went on a mental binge getting games

the only one i want to play though, is "Retro Game Challenge"

SO GOOOOOOOOOOOD

6 original (plus 2 alternate) 8-bit games that are super fun
silly story in between the game playing, but damn, the games are super fun

and there is some ridiculous stat keeping in the Free Play mode, after you have unlocked the games and all sorts of easter eggs and extras (like GameFan magazines and the like...)

hiiiiiiiiiighly recommended if you're into retro gaming

Yeah, amazing game.

Super fun RPG board game. Awesome in multiplayer.

I take my Ds to work all the time and play it almost everyday. I'm playing the RPG called Mario and Luigi Partners in crime... really fun game.

My DS is the only thing I play anymore... Wii and PS3 haven't interested me lately.

I too went on a downloading spree when I first got my Acekard, so I'm trying to play through one game at a time as if I bought them. Right now I'm hooked on Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords. It's amazing!
