DS Daily: Recent purchases

We're gonna guess that you haven't bought an actual DS lately, since they're sold out most places we look (seems to be a trend for Nintendo), but we still like to keep up with the games you're picking up. Taken advantage of any great sales or preorder bonuses lately? Just picked up a game because you had to have it? What have you bought recently? Since there haven't been a lot of big releases (but that is changing, as of right about ... now), we're curious what you've done to tide yourself over in the last month or so. Or, if you're not buying games, are you buying accessories? We've been doing a lot of cooing over various cases lately here at the DSF offices.

Also, we always like any excuse to watch this. Sure, it's not from a DS game, but hey, who's drawing battle lines between various Nintendo products here? Not us!

I recently bought a blue snap-on hard case for my DS, Atsumare! Power Pro Kun Koshien, Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion and Lego Star Wars. Nanostray 2, Advance Wars, Professor Layton and Ninja Gaiden are all paid off and I eagerly await their arrival.

I actually did get a DS in the past month, and I have Worms Open Warfare on the way. Cheaper thanks to free monies from Wal-Mart.

I got Rocket Slime new with a good markdown at my local EB and I ordered Izuna over Amazon. I didn't like the latter as much as I expected, however I wanted to like it. I would have prefered more character customization along multiple classes or something.

I like Rocket Slime a lot, though. The tank battles were great moments.

No DS games in the last month or two. But that will change today when I go out and get myself some Advance Wars goodness. =D

Well, I bought Cooking Mama (first one) right before Christmas. That was within a month! Aside from that, not too much on the DS. Although I hope to pick up Advance Wars and I hope even more to have some time to play it.

Had a rare chance to buy some stuff from the nintendo store with an employee discount. So I picked up Zelda and Brain Age 2. I'm really looking forward to the next trip though, since it will mean advance wars and brawl.

Just pre-ordered Advance Wars on Amazon. I'm about to go to my gamestop to pre-order Ninja Gaiden [seeing as how pre-ordering from them will get me that sweet sword stylus].

I bought Elite Beat Agents for 8.97 at Circuit City. That game totally rocked!

I too just got a DS within the past few weeks. I got one for Christmas, but it had dead pixels, so I took it in to the store, but no one had them, so I had to wait a few days. iTrackr is a good website if you want to find out when stores get electronics like DSes. Anyway, before I got my (first) DS, I bought Pokemon Diamond, and a Nintendo DS Lite Starter Kit, since I knew I was getting one for Christmas. Then, afterward, I got Brain Age 2, The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, and a bag to carry my DS, games, and accessories.

Electroplankton - I had been looking for it forever, hoping to find it used in stores instead of paying $70 on eBay. I personally love it, I'll plug my computer speakers into my DS and just listen to the rhythmic sounds. It's probably not something most people would enjoy, but I do!

I do that. I like to just listen to it before bed.

Within the last month ...

I took advantage of the Ouendan 2 sale at Playasia (thanks DS Fanboy). It's my first import game from Japan, and it was on my "must have" list. I love it. :)

I also purchased Final Fantasy III in December, but I haven't opened it yet.

Since I have Ouendan 2, I can get rid of my Elite Beat Agents (unopened).

Purchased a Zelda Gold Bundle for my significant zither, which means we've been playing LZPH whenever the sidekick in Okami becomes too annoying. I also picked up Trace Memory, which I'll probably crack open whenever we tire of LZPH. Next month, I'll be buying Advance Wars: Days of Ruin and the one I've been waiting for: Drone Tactics! Customizable insects in an Advance Wars context -- my favorite concept in the history of the GBA/DS!

(For those who wonder how I was able to locate the bundle when other people can't even find a black console: I bought it from Amazon last month during one of those rare one-in-stock moments, but it somehow took them this long to ship.)

Well, I finally got something I've wanted since I got my DS over a year ago: a way to Homebrew! Ever since I first got my DS, I've been hearing about all the wonderful homebrew aps and have been dying to try them out. Found a great deal on an R4 with 1gigabyte micro SD card and am now among the homebrewing elite, oh yea!

Oh, I also picked up Elite Beat Agents. My hubby is addicted to it, but I'm not a big fan of some of the songs.

So I just got a DS earlier this month, so I've been busy acquiring a library. Picked up: Metroid Prime Pinball, Mario Kart DS, Phoenix Wright, and Puzzle Quest. Had a boring work evening last week and did a lot of damage on ebay, picking up Feel The Magic, SimCity, and Resident Evil. Not planning on getting anything else for a while... though if something good would crop up on ebay, or I'd stumble upon something essential used I'd not say no...

Since Victor Franco posted previously that Elite Beat Agents is selling for $8.97 at Circuit City, you should just buy it from Circuit City.

I don't have a Paypal account (since I've never shopped on Ebay), so I don't know how to sell to anyone over the internet.

I'm just going to give Elite Beat Agent to one of my nieces/nephews for their birthday.

Sorry for the late reply.
