WRUP: Have your cake and eat it too edition

Us American gamers only received one new game this week, one we don't find ourselves interested in that much. Personally, we've been busy playing a little game called Final Fantasy Fables: Chocobo Tales. Now that we've gone and reviewed it, though, we're looking to get ourselves back to playing something new. We never got really far into Hotel Dusk, so maybe we'll go back to playing that this weekend.

But, enough about us! What are you playing this weekend?

1. Theme park and Castlevania DoS.

2. Just got Mario Kart DS, so I'm playing that. Also got an R4DS homebrew device, so I started playing ALttP again, and maybe this time I'll finish it since DS is so much more portable/easy to pick up and play than PC emulator. I intend to buy the VC release when I get my Wii anyway, just to support Nintendo and clear my conscience.

5. Right now, I'm plowing through Hotel Dusk (after playing PWAA through for the 4th time). I've got Pokemon Mystery Dungeon coming in within the week, and of course Pokemon Diamond once that ships. On the non-DS side of things, I've enlightened some of my RL friends to TimeSplitters, and the occasional round of NetHack.

6. PS: Does anyone know if the ezflashV expansion pack's rumble works with commercial (from real carts, not from the EZV) games?

7. I bought Final Fantasy Tactics Advance a few days ago and I'm deeply engrossed in that. Now I'm looking forward to FFT DS.

8. FFTA is good. Don't throw away nearly any mission items. Try to obtain steal ability and steal weapon early for massive loot.

9. On the final level of Mario & Luigi: PiT. Great game!

BTW, that DS Lite cake looks horrible.

12. Chocobo Tales-- so far it's fun and ridiculously cute (and I love the soundtrack full of remixed FF classics!).
