    Yeah its kinda early, no work today and I'm bored out of my tiny little mind so thought I'd do this thing. As before this would be kept up to date with dates and so on, so expect games to appear or disappear. So not a lot next week so I basically did descriptions and images for all games even though some have already been dumped into the magical rom bush.

    Surf's Up

    Surf's Up is an arcade surfing and extreme sports video game. The action is set at the annual "Reggie Belafonte Big Z Memorial Surf Off," where surfers from around the world are ready to risk it all for glory. Players experience the rush and thrills of surfing in exotic surf spots around Pen Gu Island and can rip it up and play as one of 10 characters from the film, including Cody, the young challenger from Shiverpool; Tank, the merciless champion; or Big Z, the surfing legend from the past. Only by mastering and understanding the waves can the player become not only the new champion, but a true surf legend. Based on "bound to be lame" CGI Penguin film (oh goody another!).

    Simple DS Series Vol.15: The Kanshikikan 2 - Aratanaru 8-tsu no Jiken wo Touch seyo

    Kanshikikan popped up on the DS awhile back. It was a port of the crime/detective drama that first appeared on the PS2. Now a sequel to the game has been made, and it is heading to the DS this month. You could compare the game to Phoenix Wright or Hotel Dusk, seeing that it is the same type of adventure style gaming. Dear D3, localise this for me, thank you.

    New Zealand Story DS

    Port of the classic arcade game that would've been with its double jump and energy bar but unfortunately some of the touch screen mini games are horrid and they kinda mess it up a bit.

    Meteos: Disney Magic

    Not as good as Meteos, but still nice puzzler this time with Disney theme. Get the original though, it plays better and you don't have to hold the DS like a book.

    Wario - Master of Disguise

    Worst Wario game ever! Its not bad though but its just got the wrong look and its kinda dull. There is some fun to be had from it just don't expect anything as good as previous Wario platformers.

    So there you go, nothing to get excited about unless you understand Japanese, thank whatever for those kooky games otherwise this thread would be worse than it already is. The week after does look like a better week for games though so we won't have to go through this for much longer.
