    I'm having trouble finding good games. The last one I got was DQM: Joker. Anybody know of some good games since then or from around that time?

    Contra 4... erm... Contra 4... the rush of good titles pretty much died.

    I guess NFS: ProStreet and Final Fantasy XII: Revenant Wings too.

    @Below: How'd I forget that?

    I already did contra 4, CoD 4, and Lego Star Wars complete trilogy. I mainly like platformers and action games. Anything really good under these categories recently?

    I didn't realize that Ninja Gaiden came out. Forgot about that. Thanks! I'll go get it now.

    Ninja Gaiden hasn't been released, only the demo which if I am not wrong is in Download Station v7 or something. Geometry Wars is #1745

    okay, thanks.
    I won't bother downloading the download station, setting up that, then downloading the demo, all just for a little demo...

    I am getting geometry wars though. Thanks!

    He means... that he wants to know how recent you mean?
    as in games that came out this week, this month or the last 2 months.

    Geometry Wars is a great game,
    Umm... Boogie if you like that sort of thing.
    Also I recently got My Word Coach which isn't too bad and World Series of Poker 2008 is quite good,
    Last on the list is Mario Party, but if you wanted that you'd probably already have it.

    As everyone said Geometry Wars, i have never played anything like that before and i had hours of fun on that. Everything else has been pretty much said. Just head to the NDS releases section and have a browse through there.

    Front Mission is also fucking pathetic. It's a direct port of the SNES game, the sprites still look shit, the stylus control is irritating, and the word "wanzer" pisses me off.
    If you didn't see that other thread, I'm having an overly critical, pessimistic rage day.

    Now, to contribute to the thread, Tales of Innocence is pretty good, I managed to play it for a little while, which is a feat, because I usually can't stand not being able to follow the plot of a game, and end up not playing the game.

    BTW, If you don't mind the aforementioned faults, Front Mission is a pretty good tactics game.

    Actually, I downloaded the demo unpacked, meaning I downloaded it seperately.

    Well, the last really "grat" game that I played on the DS was Zelda... It have been some time since a good game came out on the DS, sadly.

    Since that's not an actual rom, could you please provide a link to that?
    I mean, we have the download stations here, right...? So, shouldn't a part of one of those be OK?

    Please do not provide links to roms, even download station roms.
    If it's not homebrew, and you don't have permission from the copyright holders, don't link to it here.
