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!
Going abroad for 2 weeks! Need DS/GBA suggestions.
So I'm going to Hong Kong for two weeks in a couple weeks. It is going to be about 20 hours of flying, as well as many hours of layovers. I'm thinking, I may take my DS, at least to play in the airport. I know some airlines have relaxed the restrictions on wireless devices, but I don't know if the ones I'm on will. And I don't think you can disable the wireless on the DS like you can a PSP.
So. I need some games that:
1) are engaging and could keep a dude occupied for a long time.
2) can be found for cheap.
I have Etrian Oddyssey, which I like, but don't play much anymore. I haven't beaten it yet, but it just got a little too sloggy for me.
New Super Mario Bros. Which is great, but I've beaten, so now I'm just working on collecting all the Star Coins, which gets old after a while.
Cooking Mama! Actually for my wife but I played it a little and had some fun.
RPGs: I would snatch the new Chrono Trigger up if I could find it for about 20 dollars.
Puzzle games: Puzzle Quest is strongly tempting me.
Platformers: They hearken back to my childhood, and I love honing my skill.
Things that are fun!
Edit: I've played a ton of GBA games, but don't own any. I've played the Mario and Luigi RPGs a fair amount, but not looking to pick them up at this juncture.
