Vanilla Forums has been nominated for a second time in the CMS Critic "Critic's Choice" awards, and we need your vote! Read more here, and then do the thing (please).
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
ITT we punch me in the face until I buy your favorite DS game.
Okay, so I need a new DS game to happen in my general direction. But not just any DS game. I need a game that kicks me in the groin area and redefines life as I know it. I like my DS, but nothing truly amazing has come my way just yet, and that's not good enough.
That's why I need my trusty PA folk to come down hard on this thread like a sledgehammer until it produces the single game that will make my DS perform magic into my facial orifices. All genres are open, hell, I don't care if it's freaking Barbie Horse Adventures as long as you make your case in a compelling way. Tell me the game I MUST HAVE.
My Goozex request list is calling.
Games I'm now considering, gleaned from the many awesome recommendations here:
The World Ends With You
Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow
Kirby Canvas Curse
I've definitely been looking at the top three for some time now, though I've waited on TWEWY for a price drop and Phourglass until I played Wind Waker. All of these games seem like they might have the potential to glue me to my DS for many solid hours of greatness. For those that haven't weighed in yet: Are we missing any others here? Or is there one of these that I must have NOW?
What is the most exciting and fun experience you've had with a game on the DS? And furthermore, if you could only choose one DS game to play, what would it be and why?
