Weak week for DS releases.
I might try the tangram game. I like awesome mind puzzles.
Speaking of, I've been playing Rittai Picross - eventually to be released here as 3D Picross - and oh my. Ridiculously addictive, with a nice learning curve. Worth tracking down when it comes out here (though I had no trouble whatsoever navigating the Japanese menus, even without a translation guide).
In other news, I'm selling my DSi. A friend wants one, I haven't really been playing the DSiWare games I've downloaded, and I miss the GBA functionality. Luckily, I still have my old DS Lite. And this way, I can buy a DSi XL in the spring with no (well, minimal) guilt.

I've never bought a 3rd party controller, but I've had 5 3rd party memory cards (can't remember brand, but I think they made the sharkport) for various systems (PS1, PS2, N64) and all of them corrupted in about a year or so.
