    I need your assistance in purchasing a great DS game with my 30$ gift card. It can either be a Wifi or non-Wifi game. Let me start off by stating that I am very picky when it comes to games for the DS. Since the DS tends to all audiences and I am but one audience member, I believe there are a lot of games that I'm just not interested in. I am willing to put in any extra money if the game's price exceeds 30$.

    Please read before posting your reply:
    -I am not a fan of Pokemon or Pokemon-related games, this includes most RPG's (Sonic Chronicles: The Dark Brotherhood).
    -I own Final Fantasy 3 and have yet to beat it and decided that before I get FF4, I must finish 3.
    -I currently own 18 games. Some of my favorites are: Electroplankton, Gunpey, Mario vs Donkey Kong 2, Tetris DS, Mario Kart, Space Invaders Extreme, New Super Mario Bros, Trauma Center, Warioware Touched, and Sonic Rush.
    -I have both Brain Age games....boring.
    -I will not buy Kirby Superstar Ultra since I own the original for SNES and I heard it's better.
    -I have Geometry Wars for Wii and can play the basic game on my DS, I don't want the full version.
    -I'm not a youngin' so "kiddie" games probably wouldn't appeal to me (but there have been exceptions (Disney Meteos)).

    I know there are tons of great games for the DS that I have yet to discover. If you can provide me with your most zenith suggestion, I will research as so and get back to you when I have made my decision. Thank you for your time and your recommendations.

    I wish. I've already asked around. No one wants this card. They only want Tatsunoku vs Capcom.

    I already have headphones that I used a couple times while DJing in High School. They're fat and funky enough.

    Metroid Prime Hunters was my choice for a while until I read somewhere that it has an arduous "controls" learning curve and that it often will feel like you're developing carpel tunnel syndrome. Professor Layton looks like a pretty good choice. I'm researching that game now. MPH is still on my mind.

    I got way more than that. All I need is a flashcart to put Homebrew on my DS? I have Homebrew for my Wii but I'm new to hacking my DS. If yes, then I'm going to order it right away.

    Metroid Prime Hunters DOES have terrible controls. I had to stop playing for a while because it was waaaaay too awkward for me. Eventually I picked it up and changed the controls scheme, which made it better, but was still troublesome. I stopped playing simply because of this reason. The wifi stuff is good though. [​IMG]

    I don't have it, but N+ looks good. You can build your own stages and stuff. *shrugs*

    ok here's the plan get a game or gift that someone wants ...sell it to them for cost price or a bit more if you can ..and buy a flash card and a nice 8gb sdhc and then get all the games you want [​IMG]

    or if you have already ordered a DS card then buy an 8gb SDHC with the voucher and get a nice case to keep your ds safe in and some other bits like a spare custom stylus [​IMG]
