Oh, and how's Yoshi Touch 'n go ?

I've only played Pokemon TCG on Gameboy Color, and one of the Pokemon games that were published for the very same console. I skipped all GBA titles, but now I'm planing on buying one for the DS, as I found them for a very low price at around 5-10 dollars. So, my obvious question would be: Which one should I buy? I'd like to hear your experiences with Pokemon DS games, and if you're so kind as to explain to me the differences among the titles, I would be ever so grateful.

For the dude who had their thread locked by TBD, I reckon that the pokemon games come down to one of two choices. Platinum of Soulsilver/Heartgold. Platinum is a better version of Diamond/Pearl, and also has the VS Seeker which increases the longevity of the game (as you can battle regular trainers on a more regular basis). In my opinion, the VS seeker makes this a very desirable game. On the other hand, Soulsilver/Heartgold have 16 Gym leaders (hence an increased number of more 'epic' battles) and 2 different run throughs of the elite four.

Personally, I think the fact there are 16 badges outweighs the VS seeker, but one of my mates hates soulsilver for the lack of vs seeker and only plays the older ds gen games as a result.

Thank you both. I have one more question, what about the Ranger and other titles, that are supposedly a bit different from Heartgold/Soulsilver etc...

@noblo601 Just FYI the VS Seeker exists in Diamond/Pearl too.

@Nightwalker Pokemon Black and White are coming out in March so it may be worth waiting and picking up one of those. The people who played the Japanese versions had some good things to say about them.

Let's play some Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate! Let me know who you are before you add me.

And what's the deal with Ivy the Kiwi? Hmmm, I wonder if the DS demo is still up.

^ Pretty decent and fun platformer, I recommend it.

@HolyMackerel - haha yeah I know, I suppose I didn't write clear. That it was missing from Heartgold and Soulsilver is pretty bad though... would have added heaps to the adventure because I hate the phone calls...

So, I'd like to play a tactical, or strategy game on my DS, seeing as there are many cheap options available . Can you recommend some, excluding Civ: Revolution and Dawn of Discovery? As an example, I'd mention Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes, which I thoroughly enjoyed.
Thanks in advance.

i was skeptical, but LOVE this game. it's pretty big, too. it gets tough at points, which keeps it interesting, and it is fun, imo.

another 'strange' game i highly recommend is 'soul bubbles' which was put out as a special game from Toys R Us, i guess. i got it cheap on ebay just because it was so cheap and LOVE it. it's got a good learning curve and gets difficult enough to be interesting. the music is good also.

Hello, I do like Mario Party, and I'd love to play it on the go. What do you guys think? Is Mario Party DS worth the $29.99 price tag?

I love Dragon quest XI, and wanted to try getting one of the DS remakes. Is it worth paying $50 just for the fifth one? (Dragon Quest V)

Tough to say. On the one hand, it's one of the best in the series. On the other hand that's a totally rediculous price. Personally I'd just wait until Dragon Quest VI comes out in a few weeks.

I preordered VI, it looks good. Thanks!
