DS releases for the week of October 23rd [update 1]

Another week comes and another assault of games are released for the DS and GBA. This week brings plenty of tasty morsels of maniacal offerings, but if you're like us, you're wondering just how you will store any more games in your already crammed case. Personally, our entire wardrobe of pants had to be changed out for cargos since we need at least 3 pockets just for our DS Lite and games.

Click into the post to check out the releases and tell us which game (or games) tickles your fancy this week!

[Update: We added a photo image credit to 8 Bit Joystick.]

Note to self:
Never complain about lack of RPGs on the DS.
Contact, Magical Starsign, Children of Mana, FF3, etc.
The DS is getting ready to cut into my Wii budget

God damn it, the DS is starting to get raped by awful cartoon TV and movie titles.

For me this week, it'll be Touch Detective and thanks to Atlus' shipping goof last week, Contact. I so feel the pain that comes from game cases being overloaded with games. This time, instead of moving one game out, I have to move 2 ;_;

I'm kinda curious how that Star Trek game is going to turn out. I liked the PC game that was similar (can't remember the name), but I saw an older video of the DS version and the graphics looked very very bad.
