    Upon next payment, I'll be buying Nintendo DS Lite + CycloDS (If someone thinks they can convert me to another card, I'm all open for that. [​IMG]) and I was wondering if there are some games that you recommend?

    I really like adventure/open world games, such as Zelda (Ocarina of Time on N64 at least), Pokémon and it's also a huge bonus if you can - after beating the game - hunt for rare/legendary items/creatures/equipment, sort of like catching the legendary pokémons in the pokémon games.
    Now, I'm not asking you to surf the web for hours, just if you have any games on the top of your mind.

    Thanks in advance,
    Andri

    I'm going to throw a random title out just to be funny about this.

    Point Blank DS

    It has the maps of the earlier PB games the PSX/2 had, and some more. It's pretty decently challenging trying to do all the objectives and it tracks various stats like those brain trainers do. Game got a piss poor allocation for retail so it could be a little annoying to find if you buy, but if you're warezin' it...no biggie.

    No need to worry, we're nice people (at least most of us [​IMG])

    Good luck with your new DS and Cyclo.

    Hehehe, thanks! [​IMG]
    Since I don't have it already, I'm still having trouble deciding the color. Black, White, Pink, (Silver?) I also thought about buying these extra skins or whatever.
