Nintendo DS Lite

I am so getting it.

Provisional list of games to buy:

Animal Crossing: Wild World
Mario Kart DS
Metroid Prime: Hunters
Nintendogs: Chihuahua and Friends
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney
Trauma Center: Under the Knife

I’m iffy on the last two, and Phoenix Wright is quite hard to find, anyway.

The previews for Metroid Prime: Hunters have failed to bowl me over, but I’m keeping my hope up for more details.

I haven’t played Castlvania: Aria of Sorrow, which is why Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow is not included.

Should any other DS games be on this list?

    The dialogue for Trauma Center is really well done. I like it.

    Dawn of Sorrow probably doesn’t require having played its predecessor. Neither of them makes a ton of sense anyway, but they’re very well-executed and there’s a lot of replay value.

    No Advance Wars? No Mario and Luigi?

    No Meteos? No Brain Training?

    Pheonix Wright is just about to get a release in the UK.. maybe we’ll see some importing going the other way for a while?

    Call me crazy, but I’m not a huge fan of Advance Wars. I’m just not a turn-based strategy sorta gamer.

    Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time — Heard it was good, but am not immediately drawn to the Mario games. Hrm…

    Meteos — Hm… I’ll consider it. One of my friends has it, so I may have a look.

    Brain Training — Possibility. Looks like lots of quick fun, perfect for train commutes.

    Never got the hang of Sudoku, which I heard would be included on the Euro release (no idea if it also applies to the US). When this Sudoku craze was emerging middle of last summer, I thought to myself, “That game would be ideal for the DS”.

    Ooooh, you should totally get Trauma Center! It’s incredibly frustrating at times but so addictive!

    I second all the other recommendations and would add Metroid Prime Pinball. It’s a great game for short gaming sessions. And it’s got great music.
