    I get my DS today and I need to catch up with you all with the gaming. There are sooo many DS games that I need to try, play, and catch up on. What games are the best to start with? I'm looking for some great games to make my DS experience great, any ideas? I like playing all genres so whatever is good i'l play.

    You can start with Zelda: PH or Phoenix Wrigth all depend in your preference my first DS game was FF XII Revenant Wing (great plot for a Spin off). Elite Beat Agent is really good and funny. Oh man there's too much game i don't know wich one tell you n_n

    No they are RPG, it's just a DS that acts like Ace Attorney you know the one on TV but way better.

    I advice you to start off Nostalgic. New Super Mario Bros is a good place to start off.

    I have an R4DS SDHC clone, it's not that bad but the micro sd reader was poorly made. I've been using this card for 2 months or so and it's still working fine. I would recommend playing Soma Bringer with the translation patch, Zelda PH, and FF:CC.

    I don't think red is a colour for girls. I think only the pink ones are for girls, the rest are for everybody.

    I'd actually recommend Squeak Squad. It's certainly better than any of the DS Mario games.

    I don't think a red one is girly at all, many friend's of mine had red ones and they looked pretty good.
    To Raza, not all DS Mario games are bad. Certainly Kart is overrated imo, but 64 was a good remake and Party was a good time killer.

    Kart is Kart, Party is Party.

    But 64 was a horrid remake because of the CONTROLS and the CAMERA, New Super All Worlds Are Ice World What Is This Lost Levels With A Gazillion Lives Bros handled like a stuffed mule downhill an icy slope and Super Princess Peach makes Bowser look positively sexy because of how passive-aggressive the controls are again.

    So yeah, the problem with every single traditional DS Mario game are the controls.

    try custom robo arena is sweet , or maybe an emulator.

    I'm use an r4 rip off, the mars cart, it seem to play all homebrews games,emulators and game that are out / come out.
    Its simple , easy to use and I've used it about about 9-10 months *start with the 8gb Or bigger if there is bigger* it will save you time cash and wondering with to delete off your card.


    thought there are also some great homebrews
