Hey Giantbomb, I'm Jake, but you can call me Biohazard if you want. Anyway, I got payed quite a bit from a temporary part time job I had recently, and I'm going to use the extra money to buy a DS Lite.
I used to have a DS. Three actually. Not very durable machines. I had the original fat DS, but it got stolen. After that I bought a DS Lite, but the hinge and three buttons stopped working, so I replaced it with another DS lite. I somehow lost that one (no idea how though). It's been over a year since Ive played a DS, but there's a few games that I really want to play.
But first, here's why I'm not getting a DSi (feel free to prove me wrong though). I've never played one, but here's what I've heard:
1- The battery life is hours shorter
2- GBA Games > DSiWare
3- Camera sucks
4- It costs too much more to be worth it.
Anyway, here's some of the games I'm getting, but it would be great if you could tell me your reccomendations.
1- Animal Crossing: Wild World - Definitely not a game for everyone. I've played the hell out of this and I loved it. Something about it is just so entertaining.
2- Pokemon Heartgold - My friend is actually giving me this one. He got a little too hyped about it and ended up preordering both versions of the game. He likes SoulSilver more, so he's giving me the other one. Not sure how I feel about the Pokewalker. Probably not something I should bring into my high school.
3- Mario and Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story - I've played both Superstar Saga and Partners in Time, as well as all of the Paper Mario series, so I know that the developers know how to make a good mario RPG. I loved Partners in Time, and the helpful Quick Look here on Giantbomb only reassured me.
I would also get The World Ends With You, but I way overplayed that game, loved the story and all, but after you beat a game like that, even with all of the interesting bonus content after the ending (i.e. secret reports), there's really no reason to get it again.
Also, a side note about handheld systems,
Not to start a console war or anything, but I decided a long time ago not to get another PSP. I had one, but I never really used it. Some of the games for it were really good, like Crisis Core, but the thing is, there were so few games, and I really do not like playing shooters on handhelds. IMO, shooters belong on either consoles or PC, but not on handhelds. It just doesn't seem to work right.
I ended up giving my PSP to my friend. He's having lots of fun with DoA: Paradise (lol).
Anyway, thanks for reading my first blog, and please post any other good games I should get.
