    I starting to get bored waiting for OoT3D, so I've started looking for some used games at EB Games/Gamestop. I came across some gems (Space Bust-A-Move, Viewtiful: Double Trouble, Soul Bubble, and New Zealand Story Revolution), but I can't seem to find any decent action RPGs. I've played all the Zeldas and have gone through Blue Dragon: Awakened Shadow. I'm just looking for a decent Action-RPG on the cheap to hold my attention until BlazeBlue or OoT3D comes out. I've read decent things about the FF Crystal Chronicles games, but heard Echos of Time is better than Ring of Fates. Any opinions?

    Thanks ahead of time for the help.

    -Lufia DS
    -Lunar Knights (and the boktai games for gba)

    and not an rpg, a zelda-like game, Okamiden

    If you like JRPG's and able to play M rated games get, Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3, or even Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 4. Each of these games have a fun filled 60 hours of turned base combat, life simulation, and awesome. So again, get these if your able to.

    Im looking for DS Action-RPGs. Should have been more clear.

    I need games that are in English (no flash card for 3DS), so I need stuff that has been released in the states. Believe me, I would LOVE to give Soma Bringer a try.

    SRT: OG Saga: Endless Frontier. It's turn based and stuff but it plays like a fighting type game with timed button pressing and it's pretty action packed. It's a lot of fun.

    Plus it features a convenient "hold R+A" to skip text option so you can just speed through all the boring text and get to more fightan.

    Just my personal suggestion.
