plenty of good games still coming. crazy amount of RPGs in the works. i feel like DS is supposed to be dieing by now but it just keeps going. i actually feel ready to move onto a new handheld but awesome sales will continue. at least there's a whole lot to keep me occupied until then.
anyone getting Sonic Classic Collection this week? i can't imagine many will. those who want to play the games will already be playing it somewhere else.

Yup the DS is still going to get some pretty awesome software. If a next handheld we're still to come, it would be kind of stupid if Nintendo doesn't make it NDS compatible also. I'm not too worried about it though since each of the Game Boy versions we're all backwards compatible with each other. So if the DS is Nintendo's Game Boy replacement, I can see it getting the same treatment.
As for the games, my eyes are currently on Pokemon HeartGold/SoulSilver. Other games like Golden Sun DS, Professor Layton, Luminous Arc 3, SMT: Strange Journey, Okamiden, and Ni No Kuni are also getting my close attention. Pretty much most of the games on this list I hold some kind of interest in.
Epic post, thank you Generosity. +rep
Is DS the best hand-held ever?...Yes, yes it is.
No-questions-asked Day 1 purchases
The Last Window: Midnight Promise
There are a few others I'm interested in but that'll make the list long so I just listed the ones I'm getting 100% for sure.
i'd probably agree that the DS is the greatest handheld ever. Nintendo handhelds have always had the best software support. the amount of RPGs this thing has got, i get the feeling it's the SNES of the handheld world.
there are plenty of games i'd like to get day one but prices here are just way too bloated for my liking. and since the good games hardly go down in price i end up not buying many for a long time. it pisses me off because it means i go without things like professor layton, ace attorney, spirit tracks, chrono trigger, etc. thank whoever for region free. i'll be resorting to importing once i finally get a career going. it pains me to not support the Australian market but i've had enough of being ripped off.
so my list of games to get is already quite large and unfortunately will only get worse when many of these titles arrive. although it does give me an opportunity to go through my backlog.
NEWSFLASH! PICROSS 3D IS ACTUALLY A SEQUEL TO THE RUB RABBITS IN DISGUISE! LOOK AT THE CHARACTERS IN THE BACKGROUND ONOES!!!
There are a lot of games that I had totally forgotten about that I really want on that list. Mainly, the two Professor Layton games top it, with Golden Sun close behind. I didn't even know that the Mega Man Zero Collection was coming out for DS, either, so that's a day one.
Sonic Classic Collection is already out, though. If I had funds to splurge, I would get it.
added Scribblenauts 2 to the list.
-Developed by 5TH Cell.
-Out this Fall.
-D-pad controls for Maxwell
-improved stylus controls and camera is now fixed.
-Big updates to physics (it's still DS, but it's vastly improved).
-10,000 new adjectives (some new objects too).
-You can string adjectives together.
-Levels are revamped completely improved (no more solving every level with rope/unicorn/death/etc), levels are deeper in content.
-fleshed out level editor
-par system removed
-new hint system
also Intellivision Lives! planned for June 2010
could soon be getting a Japanese release date for Ni no Kuni. and hopefully one step closer to a western release announcement.
As detailed in this week's Famitsu, Level-5's Studio Ghibli tie-up RPG Ni no Kuni is one of Japan's most wanted original titles -- second only to NieR. But there's cause for concern, as despite a planned Spring release, we haven't heard anything about the game since last year.
The wait may at long last be over. Via his Twitter yesterday, Level-5 CEO Akihiro Hino said a date has been finalized internally for a Ni no Kuni exclusive press conference of some form. "It looks like we'll soon be able to announce a variety of enjoyable things," he wrote.
In a later post, he assured that none of his posts were April Fools' Day jokes.
So far, Ni no Kuni's appearances at press conferences have been limited to the past two yearly Level-5 Vision events. The game was put on playable display at last year's Level-5 Vision, a month before a demo cart was distributed to the masses (well, some of the masses, anyway) at the Tokyo Game Show.
A press conference exclusively covering Ni no Kuni could be a completion ceremony, an event that's often held just prior to the release of major titles (like last year's Professor Layton event). Hino did not specify the type of press conference.
Added in The 4 Heroes of Light with a date still TBA. It's from Square-Enix and was released in Japan as 'The 4 Warriors of Light: Final Fantasy Gaiden'.
Wow...this is a great thing you did hear man...awesome stuff really, I'm definitely going to use this one day soon...I bought and traded in like 2 DS's, I wish I would've kept one, but everytime I bought one for my wife she got bored with it, and I couldn't get into the RPG's because it lacked the grandiose of the console iterations.
I'm going to give it one more try, but man, I really wish my favorite genre would return to the big screen. It's a shame so many of these great RPG's have to get the pint-sized treatment, I miss the PS2 era...and from what I hear, the SNES era.
