    Well I'm going on an 11 hour flight after the weekend and I'm hoping to get a catalogue of ds games to entertain me for the trip. Besides eating, going to the loo, and watching in-flight entertainment, I'm going to need to kill about 8hours of time.

    So far I've gotten:
    Sim city ds
    Anno 1701
    Kirby Mouse Attack (squeek squad)
    Age of empires

    That's not going to be enouph. Can anyone help with good games I can get stuck into.

    P.S. I've played to death FFIII, MPH and AC:WW. Otherwise I'd be taking those too.

    I dunno if you are into puzzles, but there are always Tetris, Planet Puzzle League, and Picross. I have been able to kill hours playing those. If platformers are more your thing, there is always New Super Mario Brothers. I know some of these are old and you may have played them before, but some games like Tetris never get old.

    What kind of games do you like?

    And 11 hour flight - wow - where are ya going?

    I know, I've played lost in blue, it can be very frustrating.

    Ok, so I'm adding PICROSS to my list. *edit* - And Advance Wars II (I enjoyed the first one)
    I've played all the other games.

    Thanks guys!

    I generally like games where there is progression. Sometimes dungeon crawlers can be anoying because you basically see the same places over and over again. That being said, I've played lots of DCrawlers. Oh I wish crystal chronicles was out.

    Oh, I'm going from England to South Africa for a week. So I suppose I'll be playing my DS on the way back as well. My wife isn't coming with so I'm going to be really bored on the plane.

    Well, I hope your battery doesn't run out... it did for me.. [​IMG]

    Are you going to Hong Kong?

    I think the game you've chosen so far will be enough. Otherwise I'd like to recommend Final Fantasy: Chocobo Fables (or whatever it's called) It's a game that will last throughout the flight!

    EDIT: Oh, South Africa... ^^_ Hope you'll enjoy it!

    Taking a spare battery. Yes, I'm prepared [​IMG]

    Alright thanks guys, I just wanted to check that I wasn't missing any ground breaking games that I somehow haven't heard of.

    *edit* tapping feet waiting for Reside Evil 4 Wii to arrive. Wohoo, weekend.

    How many frickin games can you play in 8 hours o__O ???

    ONE game should be all you need. In-flight entertainment's pretty good these days y'know...

    Yeah, indeed, Phoenix Wright! Don't use that strategy guide too fast though, you'll spoil everything.

    Magical Starsign is a good rpg that I liked (more so than Children of Mana which I still haven't really played)

    Brain Age 2 just came out which I also like a lot.

    Resident Evil DS

    Yeah I'll probably end up just finishing Kirby in the time. I just wanted some others as a backup. I think I'm all set though.

    Kirby Canvas Curse :: Meteos :: Castlevania 1 and 2 ^^ :: Trauma Center :: Sonic Rush :: Super Monkey Ball Touch & Roll :: Star Fox Command :: Megaman ZX :: Mario Hoops 3 on 3 :: Cooking Mama :: Harvest Moon :: Dragon Quest Heroes - Rocket Slime :: Mario VS Donkey Kong 2 :: Clubhouse Games :: Children of Mana :: Elite Beat Agents :: Yoshis Island :: Hotel Dusk Room 215 :: Puzzle Quest :: Pokemon Diamond


    All great games, I didn't mention the games that other people already have.. I've not completed all of these games, but i've played a bit of all of them and I like these games alot so far. If you have an R4DS, you might wanna download a few walkthroughs from GameFaqs and you can see them in the eBook reader thing. That'll help you for when you get stuck [​IMG]

    Have fun on the trip and at south africa
