I got the very cool gold Zelda DS bundle a while back, and I think I'm getting kind of close to finishing it, so I'm starting to wonder what games I should buy or GameFly for it next. We don't have a router set up for WEP so anything that is only fun if you use the on-line stuff for it is probably out.

The Trauma Center franchise is worth a try. In terms of platformers, I can't recommend the New Super Mario Bros enough.

What types of games are you into?

It really does depend on your taste in games, as the DS has games for just about every type of gamer.

New Super Mario Bros. and Yoshi's Island DS are great platformers. Honorable mention goes to the Castlevania games.

Mario Kart DS is your best racing choice.

Tetris DS and Meteos are your best bets for puzzle games.

Brain Age and Big Brain Academy are great choices if you're looking for fun distractions. They're a lot more fun than they look.

Contra 4 is a great old-school shooter, but that may be more up your husband's alley.

One thing's for sure, there's no shortage in choices.

Planet Puzzle League and Puzzle Quest are two very addicting puzzle games. The latter incorporates an RPG element to distract from the fact that it's essentially just Bejeweled. After a while you don't care, though.

IJ got a pink DS from Santa this year, so any input anybody has about games for a 5-going on 15-year old would be great. So far she has some pet hamster game, Ratatouille, and Playground. Mrs. JJD wants to buy the NAMCO game with Pac-Man and Galaga, which should be easy enough for IJ to pick up, and we see the Brain Age titles - are those appropriate for a kid just learning math basics?

Picross.

So Very Addictive. I hear the "wrong-answer" chirp in my sleep now.

Animal Crossing is another old standby.

Don't forget that the DS plays Game Boy Advance games too.

Rocket Slime is awesome, as is Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo Tales. I can totally vouch for those games being genuinely good and child-friendly.

The Brain Age games might be a bit much for her, as it assumes that you're familiar enough with math to be able to mentally tell how much time has passed between two clocks, do math functions (MDAS), etc. Also, aside from the mental training aspect, it gets boring pretty quickly.

I can second the Picross reccomendation, and would also suggest Clubhouse Games.

Definitely Animal Crossing, though it does involve a lot of reading, so you'll have to decide if that would be good for her or not. The Namco collection should be easy enough to navigate and understand. There's also a Konami collection on DS, as well as a GBA one - the GBA one has Frogger and every girl ever seems to love Frogger.

Picross is an acquired taste and not for everyone - I love it to death but I think it's a definite try-before-you-buy for most people.

NYT Crosswords is wonderful just for the piano plink plink ploonk every time you enter a word. Sadly, though, I'm too stupid for Thursdays :(

Are the Phoenix Wright games something you'd play through more than once, or just a once through kind of thing?

I would say they might be best as rentals.

I guess the question back would be: Do you read a mystery once or again and again?

My son absolutely loves the Phoenix Wright games and gets them as soon as they come out.

Now saying that, once he wins his DS/Xbox360/PS2 games he holds onto them for quite awhile and plays them over and over again before taking them to GameStop. But for Phoenix Wright he seems to trade them in as soon as he wins it.

Well I think I'll put the Phoenix Wright games in the que along with some of the puzzle games, (I'm still on the fence about Animal Crossing since my friends have stopped playing it and I don't want to set up a WEP router. Maybe I'll rent it and see if I want to hang on to it after a few weeks.)

How are the new Pokemon? Are they same old same old, or is there some improvements with the DS interface?

I'm impressed with your patience. I got tired of the Phantom Hourglass game when I had to attack that same dungeon for the, what...fifth time?

At about that time they give you a half-way point so you don't have to do the WHOLE thing every time, you just can re-do the first part when you get new items for a better time. I did find that aspect somewhat tiring though, and I'm holding off going for the final fight by going for a full completion of all the side quests and things before attacking the dungeon (hopefully) one last time.

Sounds like when I gave up on the game. Too repetitious.

Pokémon is pretty much the same. If you liked the older versions and you still have time NOW to spend playing them, I say go for it.
