I think I'm going to go through my DS collection tonight and just toss out a massive list of good MP games for it. the 3DS list will be very short, since only SSF4 is any good right now =/

OK, my wife and I decided to bite the DS bullet so to speak because, well we're going all out for this, and she travels a lot for work so a DS makes sense.
We'll pick up Mario Kart as well as a few single player games (Scribblenauts and mario DS) likely for the plane rides to and fro. Any other thoughts? We're not big Pokemon people anymore but we'd love to pick up something else to be involved and connected .
I think that Pokemon makes a better passive tag game, and that we should arrange DQIX meet-ups. That way, everyone who needs certain maps can get what they need in one swoop. (Passive tagging works, but having to check that you haven't maxed out the session with 3 every so often gets annoying quickly.)
I'm back from last year with an even crazier assortment of maps...I suppose we should make another DQ9 PAX topic for this Prime, eh?
Hey for people still considering buying a DS (myself included) 3DS is coming down to $170 Mid-August.
I haven't touched DQ9 since I beat it last year, mostly because I only had one map and I'm not a huge fan of grinding. Even at that level would I be okay to get some of these maps?

I opted for a DSi XL, as I decided $250 was too much to pay for what is essentially a gimmick in the 3DS (it's a neat gimmick, but not enough to make me shell out the extra money, especially with only a handful of games available).
I don't think I'll ever understand this line of thinking. Assuming you aren't excited about the 3D aspect, the 3DS is still a noticeable upgrade in graphics over the DS. In addition, it has backward compatibility with DS games.
The only valid reasonings I can think of to get a DS over a 3DS at this point are:
1. You just don't have the 250+ to shell out for the 3DS.
2. You want to be able to play GBA games.
3. You already have physical DS cartridges.
Hrm. Looking through this topic, I'm guessing there's not a strong enough DQ9 following to organize a meet-up with the Portable Lounge enforcer's blessing.
Guess I'll just leave it in tag mode and see what comes of it. I wouldn't mind trying to organize which maps we'd all be handing out though. Anyone for it?
