DS Daily: Going back

With the 1.7 billion games out for the DS (yes, folks, that's hyperbole), there are some games that we've just never gotten around to playing. We keep meaning to find the time to play those games that we've missed out on, but the second we think of them, another new game comes out and steals our attention.

What game have you been meaning to try, but haven't made the time or effort yet? And, what keeps you from taking the plunge and playing said game? Is it a time issue, a money matter, or perhaps just a lack of motivation?

I've been meaning to try Dimentium, the only reason I haven't so far is because I'm still wrapped up in two games right now (Famista DS and Contra 4). Also, christmas is coming and my lady gets very upset when I buy all the games I want and leave her with no gift ideas.

I want to finally finish Phantom Hourglass and Advance Wars, but I got drawn in by FFXII-RW and can't seem to get enough of it.

I'm glad I wasn't alone in that one. RW = terribly addicting.

For me it's also Yoshi's Island DS. I guess because it came out last Christmas and my time and money was going towards Wii games. Actually, this topic has inspired me to make it my next game. Thanks Candace!

DO IT, you won't regret it. Rocket Slime is awesome, one of the hidden gems on the DS.

Ontamarama and Magical Starsign. Ontamarama I've yet to pick up because I'm currently putting a lot of time into DJ Max 2 for the PSP and Magical Starsign I can't gauge whether I'd actually play it or not.

DEFINITELY BUY BAND BROS! Its by far the hardest game ever to grace the planet in its closing levels. And i mean that really. REALLY really. Crackingly retro, and you feel such a sense of overcome complication and skill that you feel you can take on any other game.

I've had my eye on Band Brothers for the longest time. I just need to take the plunge and finally get it. Thanks for the recommendation!

I couldn't reply to you candace, so hope you spot this. Take the plunge. If you're a fan of music rhythm, it just grips you. I mean, probably the first 1000 hours of playing are the hardest, but then when you master it, which, like elite beat, you will, time seems to slow down, and you find yourself bobbing up and down to keep the beat, anticipating all of your moves with new fingers that you've grown from nowhere. Definately my most played, and It'll demand more of your time than any nintendo epic because its so easy to pick up. I've even had a go at replicating the gitarooman tracks in it, which i will post at some point, if these guys let me.

If you're a fan of music/rhythm games, it's a must-buy. The multiplayer is also super-fantastic, if you know other people with DSes (there's no online). It does, however, get brutally hard on the higher levels, and even the beginning is no cakewalk, so---be prepared.

I know exactly what you are talking about... 35 games, plus another Picross JP clone coming in the mail, and a list of games to purchase. And I still haven't finished most of the ones I have!

This system has too many good games... I guess there are worse problems to have, though :D
