    I'm currently playing Nostalgia and I'm looking for some JRPGs to pass the time until SMT: Strange Journey and Ragnarok Online DS come out. Anyone got any good ones?

    Glory of Hercules just came out. It's definitely worth playing -- very fun mechanics, with each piece of equipment granting up to three different powers (a spell, an activated skill, and a passive skill.) Plus your characters each have their own list of innate skills, spells, and passive abilities, and you can have a party of up to five people at once, I think...

    Glory of Heracles and Sands of Destruction are your best choices right now, as both are fairly recent releases. Of course, if you liked Nostalgia then I'd recommend Final Fantasy 3 and 4, but you might have already played them.

    Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time
    Pokemon Pearl
    Pokemon Diamond
    Lunar Knights

    Want Nostalgia, cant go past Chrono Trigger, or you can pray for an Earthbound port.

    I second this second, BUT ill give a reason? This is actually the BEST JRPG ive played i believe, with the exclusion of Pokemon SS (lol)
    Its got a nice story and cool gameplay, i guess you can play Phantasy Star 0 also.

    Sands of Destruction is good, And i second the World Ends with you, Best storyline i liked on the DS personally

    But it's kinda monotonous later at the game.

    Back to topic: KH 358/2 Days, Suikoden Tierkreis, FF Crystal Chronicles.
