Blast is terrible, waste of points haven't played blitz, but I'm guessing it wont have the same problems as blast, ie broken online.

I was about to do a new thread until I already had a whole thread for this(:P):

I'm trying to think of a DS game to get for Xmas. I already got a list of possible choices down, I'm just hoping some of you could help me narrow it down:

Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story - New installment in my favorite RPG series, but price may be an issue.
Final Fantasy Tactics A2: Grimoire of the Rift - I enjoyed the previous game somewhat, and it's dirt cheap these days. Not sure if I want to get another Final Fantasy game so soon, though
Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon - Remake of the original Fire Emblem NES, which I greatly enjoyed. It's dirt cheap these days, but the existance of the previous version and the fact that I may be able to get it early keeps it from being a top choice
Disgaea DS - The one I'm leaning towards the most right now. The price is fair, it's part of a series that tends to get rare pretty quickly, and despite my interest, I've never played a game in the series before, which is really the only thing holding me back at the moment.
Dragon Quest IV - It's the only game in the series that I'm at all interested in, but the price seems to be on the rise, and there's a chance the original may appear on the Virtual Console. Still putting it into consideration, though
Retro Game Challenge - I love retro games, it's pretty cheap at the moment, and it had a very convincing trailer. Still looking for a second opinion, though.
Big Bang Mini - It's pretty cheap, and it looks alright. Plus, I love shmups. Any thoughts?
Henry Hatsworth - I've heard good things about it, and its current price is a steal. Still, I'm not sure if I might be able to get it even cheaper after Christmas...
The Dark Spire - I've heard good things about, and the price seems fair. Just kinda looking for that extra push, otherwise I might wait until after Xmas.
Rythem Heaven - I loved the demo for this one, and the price seems alright at the moment. I might want to wait until after Xmas, though.
The Legendary Starfy - I've been interested in it for quite some time, however, the price has been keeping me away from it. Should I take the plunge, or wait?
Kirby: Canvas Curse - It looks amazing, and I'm sorry I haven't gotten it already, however, I think it's hard to find and somewhat pricey
Super Robot Taisen OG Saga: Endless Frontier - I love the series, and this one looks like a lot of fun. However, I'm not so sure I'd want to get it at its current price, so I might hold it off until sometime after Xmas unless someone can convince me otherwise
The World Ends With You - I haven't been too interested in it, and the last time I tried it, I couldn't get my head around the different systems and such. However, its price is too good to ignore.
Castlevania: Order of Ecclasia - I love Castlevania, and I've heard Great things about this installment. The price isn't half-bad, either. However, I am getting another Castlevania game for Xmas, and I've barely touched Portrait of Ruin. I'd hate to get another game in the series so soon. Still, I might want to get it anyways, so I don't have to go looking all over kingdom come for it later.
Suikoden Tierkeis - From what I've heard, the story is atrocious(tried too hard to come off as a generic anime), but otherwise it looks pretty fun, and the trailer was pretty convincing. Price might be an issue, though. Anyone got any thoughts on this one?
Children of Mana - I think it's pretty cheap these days, and I've been interested in it for a very long time. It kinda reminds me of Lunar Knights. Any thoughts?
Magical Starsign - Another one I've been really interested in. I've heard very good things about it, it looks pretty interesting, and it's stupid cheap these days. However, I might want to wait until after Xmas. Maybe
Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume - I know little about it other than what Digiki described to me, which made it seem very complicated. Still, my gut instinct is telling me to keep my eye on it. Plus, the price seems right. Should I take the plunge?
Contra 4 - I loved the demo, and I love the series, however, they are very hard games, which might put me off if I'm not in the right mood(like I was last Christmas. Remember all my hate for Chrono Trigger and Mega Man 9/Zero 3/ZX Advent? Yeah...) Still it's dirt cheap, and it looks great. Should I just go for it and hope for the best?
The Legend of Kage 2 - It's got ninjas, old-school platforming, and a price tag that's just right. Anybody think it's worth a go?
Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles: The Rings of Fate - ...why did I put this on here? Other than the fact that it's cheap and I've heard the Crystal Chronicle games are comparable to Zelda, I haven't been too interested in it until recently. Unless someone can speak in its favor, it'll probably be the first to get the axe.
Bangai-O Spirits - Would you believe that the fact that I couldn't remember this game's name is the reason why this list is so long? I love treasure, and this game is pretty cheap. However, I've also heard it's pretty love-hate. You think it'd be worth looking into?
Robocalypse - I really like RTSes, and would really like one that I could take on the go. I've heard this one was pretty good. Any thoughts?

Sorry for making such a long post, in case you haven't noticed, I'm a very indecisive person.:p

Feel free to put in a good word for your favorite game, or at least, whichever one you think I should get, judging from what I wrote. If there's a game you think I shouldn't get, feel free to tell me that as well, since I'm mostly looking to weed out the list, rather than make a big decision right away.

Also, how do I do Bullet points? I've been here for years, yet I never learned how to do that.:P

I'd love to answer the questions of the people above me, but I'm afraid I know nothing about the games they're asking for, so I'll keep my mouth shut.:P

A decision has been made! I got Magical Starsign and Contra 4(they were cheap)

I haven't played anywhere near all those games, but I would personally recommend Henry Hatsworth. It is definately my favourite platformer on the ds. It has a pretty good difficulty level, as it gets tougher and tougher every level. The levels are pretty long, they take 10minutes or more to complete, and the bosses are some of the most awesome bosses ever put to paper.
Plus you get to be a giant robot!!! That speaks for itself!

I haven't played all of those, but I'd go with either Shadow Dragon or FF3. Shadow Dragon is so far my favourite FE game, so if you like FE, you can't go wrong with this! And FF3 is Final Fantasy, so I don't have to say anything. Some others like TWEWY and Contra look good, but I haven't played them.

Children of Mana is decent, but it gets bashed on a lot. "Because it's a hack and slash! :P" It's not that bad really, and it's quite decent. Give it a whirl if you feel like it. It's no Secret of Mana, but it's a good Mana title nonetheless.

Okay, I made my first round of eliminations. If anyone else has any other recommendations from my list, I can move on to the next round.

I've heard most praise for that game go to its story. The gameplay is said to be a bit...lackluster. But I'm just telling you what I've heard from friends and such. If I were you, I'd at least look for it cheap. I like the premise, and I love platformers, so I'd give it a shot at the right price(finding it at the right price, though, is a tad difficult. Plus, I hear the PS2 version is a bit gimped).

Well, I'd like to recommend a game called Amplitude (PS2). It's the first ever music game (I think) that involves you playing the music, not dancing to it or other things. It's like a three-button Guitar Hero game.

I remember hearing about Amplitude. It's the sequel to Frequency, which I greatly enjoyed - one of the few music games I have enjoyed, actually. How does Amplitude compare to its predecessor?

Rockband for the PSP was a lot like Frequency/Amplitude, at least, that's the impression I got from the demo. I think you might want to give that a shot if you have access to it. It's pretty fun.

Guitar Sumulation??? How does pressing candy-colored buttons in any way simulate playing an actual Guitar?!

Okay, I was just being silly. It's not a simulation game, really, Guitar Hero. It's just a way of getting to play the guitar without having to learn to play the guitar.

Mickey Final Fantasy Grimoire of the rift is a really fun game with tons of quests. i have like 112 hours of play time on it. Disgaea is also an awesome game too. I got stuck on this one part and need to do some serios level grinding though. It depends if you like to have to level up a lot and stuff in Disgaea you do. Actually in both you do. But in final fantasy you level up while doing actual quests too. :)

I played quite a bit of Final Fantasy Tactics A1, and the only thing I found particularly annoying was that you got skills from your weapons, and could only keep them if you grind enough in battle(seeing as how days pass with every step, grinding doesn't seem adviseable), and you had to go through battles with cruddy weapons just to get the skill. Do you still have to do that in A2, or did they finally change it?

Yesterday, I went to a garage sale and they had a Nintendo 64 for $5. Some lady was going to get it for her son, but she plugged it the wall in and it didn't "Make noises" or "light up". So she set it down, and I immediately picked it up and bought it. It came with Banjo-Kazooie, Super Mario 64, Rayman 2, Majora's Mask, and Diddy Kong Racing. I've played(and finished) all of them execpt Banjo-Kazooie, and Diddy Kong Racing. I'm planning on getting Kirby 64, Donkey Kong 64, and Mario Kart 64(eBay). I was wondering if there were games that anybody could recommend(Don't say OoT, StarFox 64, or Paper Mario, I have them on VC). :)

EDIT: Also, should I get BIS or Rhythm Heaven?

Hey dude I forgot to mention that I also have Contra 4, and whilst it is good it doesn't have the kind of replay value that other games can provide over long term...

Epic Win on the N64! Your two DS choices are tough. I haven't gotten to BIS yet, but Rhythm Heaven is perfect if you are looking for something to just pick up and play for a few minutes at a time. BIS is an RPG so that would be much more involving. Depends on what you are looking for I guess.

I am way too lazy to think of something clever.
