Ok. Should i get a Nintendo Points Card for my DSi and get
-Minis March Again
-Pictobots
-Something else
or should i get Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon?
I was always interested in the series, and i like the genre, so i was wondering if this would be a great game to start with (if not i was thinking about getting Path of Radiance)

Hey, guys, I'm thinking about getting Split/Second for PC. It's $30 on Amazon, but if I do get it I'll have to wait a good few weeks until I am able to get SMG2. Any objections?

@turtlelink
I would get the points card(my opinion may not matter as much though because I'm not a fan of Fire Emblem) and get PictoBits, Maio Mini's, and the crazy golf(something like that) I own the other games besides the golf one.
Edit: sorry, the golf one is 500 points...

@V8 ninja
I would just get Super Mario Galaxy, but if the deal is temporary for Split/Second, go for it.

And a few weeks you can wait. $30 for a new game is a steal. Get it!

Alright, I am asking if I should use my GameStop gift card towards either Kingdom Hearts or Monster Hunter 3 (Tri) Classic Controller Pro bundle.

What do you think I should do?

After some deliberation with self in that WiiWare thread (sorry, didn't know staff was trying to clean up individual recommendation threads), I'm almost 100% convinced that of the 1200 point games I can get, I should get Sin & Punishment over Cave Story. Objections?

Which Kingdom Hearts?

None, since Sin & Punishment is the second greatest Rail Shooter ever, and Cave Story is free on the PC.

Second greatest? What's the first greatest? (Star Fox 64, that's the best one ever for me!)

I'd go with Monster Hunter. That might be mostly because I lost interest in KH after the first game...I'd go into a diatribe but it would involve many terms insulting those obsessed with Japanese culture.

Watched a reiew of Split/Second, it sounds like it would be a good rental, but all of the events are scripted and become kind of boring after a little while. Plus it was also compared to being a game full of blue shells. Some of the events were well thought out, but some you just can`t avoid and feel a little cheap.

Can I get anymore reccomendations please?

Get Fire Emblem, of course. It's a very good game for beginners to the series since it's much more forgiving and gives you generic characters that you're expected to use as sacrifices, so you actually afford to take chances, I always hated Fire Emblem because they always have you out numbered 5 to 1 and you can rarely afford to let anyone die, especially if you don't want to be screwed in the later missions. At least in Shadow Dragon you don't have to restart every time someone dies (unless it's someone vitally important).

The only problems with it are that the story isn't very good and the characters aren't that interesting, since it's a remake of the NES original, which didn't have much of a story at all and was very close to Famicom Wars, which is what the whole series was based on. Since you're a fan of the genre, and I'm assuming you're interested in it for the gameplay, those problems shouldn't affect you. Just skip the crumby dialogue and you'll be fine.

I have been recommended by my only Nerd friend that I would Love Kingdom Hearts. He told me though that I need to play the first since I will be completely lost if I go ahead and play 2. I want both of these games, but I can't decide which to get first!

Also, I am thinking about getting an Xbox 360 Go Pro sometime, probably this Christmas hopefully. I am wondering though if I will get any enjoyment out of it, seeing as though I am not allowed to play M-rated games. I have already decided if I do, I am going to get Star Wars: The Force Unleashed and Skate 2, but is there anything else I would like?

Here are some rules to go by:
No higher rating than Teen.
No sexual content or references (Revealing women, jokes, etc.)
Nothing too scary or extremely gory.

Have fun good sir's and good mam's!

Get Kingdom Hearts 1. The story in Kingdom Hearts 2 is hard enough to follow as is. You'd be completely lost if you played it before Kingdom Hearts 1. In fact, make sure you get RE: Chain of Memories, too. It connects the stories of the first two games.

Thank you mickeymac. I have finally made a decision and now have 30 dollars reserved for it till sunday!
Also, when you say that there are usually 5 to 1, other Fire Emblem games don't allow you to recruit soldiers, or just not as much?

Yes. Go with what mickey mac says. The story would be completely wierd if you don't start with the first one. (i never finished that one and got the second from a shipping place that screwed up the order)
