DS Daily: What games should we write about more?



More often than not, we keep the front page current with news on games we're interested in. It's a selfish policy, yes, but fitting with our character. Unfortunately, in our pursuit to cover all things Super Dodgeball and Bangai-O, we often miss the titles you're anticipating.

With that in mind, we'd like to know what games you'd like us to pay more attention to. Is it that import puzzler no one's ever heard of? Or is it the high profile release we've completely ignored in favor of posts about rubbing down sweaty hunks lads? Help us help you!

Final Fantasy Tactics Advance 2. You've done pretty good on that front so far, but I ADORED both FFT and FFTA, and I am eargerly anticipating this one. I want to know if/when it's coming to the states. I want to know when a translator sneezes!

I really like what you're doing so far, and love the light, playful tone and clever humor. I'd just like to see MORE--more quirky stories, more user/swag/craft/collection photos, etc.

Would like to see more (and faster) reviews--especially on third party games. We all know that most anything Nintendo develops is going to be great, but purchase decision on other games can be harder (w/o you I would never have bought the first Phoenix Wright game, and now I'm a hardcore fan).

Would also like to see more IMPORT news--which titles are playable w/o Japanese knowledge? Please also post links if you run across translation/play guides. Some of my favorite games are imports (Ouendan, Taiko, etc.) and I'd like more info about other games I can enjoy w/o reading Japanese.

How about more accessory reviews? They don't have to be very in-depth, just a few photos and a crap/not-crap recommendation. Since the DS is so popular, the market is just overflowing with stuff, not all of it useful or worth the money.

LOVE DS Fanboy, just give me MORE--and try to rub off a little on your PSP Fanboy bretheren--they don't post even half as frequently as you do!

More accessories stories would be nice, although you are doing a nice job on that...

I also would like to hear more about past recent games that had a high buzz but fade in the dark as soon as they come out. Like Etrian Odyssey, one of my favorites. What DS games you guys are still playing a year later and beyond?

Perhaps more about Battlefield, and other games with mods like Project Reality and Desert Combat for the Battlefield series?

To Neotrix, please for the love of god, remember what blog you're commenting in before you post something like that again. -_-

Personally, I'd like to see a bit more coverage on... Well, how about maybe an in depth preview of say Crystal Chronicles: Ring of Fates or some info on Tales of Innocence?

You should write more stuff about Homebrew. Apps and Games.

You recently mentioned Rhythm N' Notes and put up a review of Wordjong. This was great because I'd never heard of either, and wouldn't have otherwise.

Also, it generated user discussion revealing the fact that Rhythm N' Notes is crap, allowing me to give it a wide berth. Don't just point out the great games--warn us of the stinkers, too!

But overall you folks are doing all right.

I think you should write about games sitting in middle and below in game charts.

There are lots of very specific games which might suddenly appeal to somebody - despite very low review scores.

DS has too vast game library to find anything there...

Yes, yes, yes. These choices are all fine and good.

But aren't American games clearly under represented? It's about time we took seriously the boundary pushing, creative ideas coming from our own country:

Some good ideas, guys. Question: would you want us to go back and review some of those older titles that are in the middle of the scale?
