    This is something I've started on my DS YouTube channel and the videos are something I'm planning to do every week. I basically recommend a DS game every week and I'm going to share the vids with gbaTemp. Number 2 will be up next Monday. As for now, check out this week's DS game I would recommend.



    or you can follow this link:

    Always felt that game was overrated. Some very interesting ideas but overall the story was just predictable.

    Very well made Video. I enjoyed watching it.

    I agree with you on nearly every aspect and I, too, absolutely love this game. The whole setting was very interesting and after getting used to the combat-system I started to really enjoy every single moment.

    But I also see this game polarize a little, because it is different and that`s why some people mind not enjoyed it as much as others do.

    Still one of my favorite DS games and I`m looking forward to your next recommendation. Maybe next time it`ll come in handy (that would obviously be the case when I didn`t already played the game [​IMG])

    Never liked TWEWY that much, finished it once and thought that was more than enough of the game. In the same pile as Kingdom Hearts for me.

    I remember having tons of fun with this, and even did all the extra missions after you finished the main game also played the hilarious alternate reality story (A quote by the main character: "I'm so emo").

    One of the fun aspects was how you can decide how easy you want to game to be, by lowering your level, surviving more than 10 battles in a row, I love after surviving something difficult you get a nice rare pin. Pulling off combos with your partner was always fun (although took a lot of time getting used to it).

    A problem I remember encountering was that some pins didn't react to my stylus (mostly those that required you to do a certain motion[don't remember which at the moment]).

    I definitely recommend this, but be sure to have a screen protector !!!

    I have to agree with pitman, the first time I started the game tho I didn't think that highly of it. But once I really got into the game
    it was really great!

    The only thing that I wished what would have been better was the first time you did Tin Pin Slammer! I didn't understand anything from the game
    and lost horribly xD

    That and some of the pins really get mixed up. I liked the idea of the L+R shoulder buttons that you could use to have more or less the same pins(with the same motion)to be used [​IMG]

    That and I noticed that Shocksuspect said in his little movie at 0:26 that The world ends with you is played out in modern Tokyo. But it's actually played out in Shibuya. A real existing place in Japan...even Hachiko is real^^Although I couldn't get a wolf to jump out of it when I petted it [​IMG]

    If you found it predictable then you having fucking ESP.
    Some of it was predictable but there were a LOT of surprising things that unfolded that are almost impossible to actually predict.

    Well Overated or not it does stand on the high rack of DS games. And is one of the better games no doubt.

    Although I did anticipate this game being no 1. Its that overated.

    I've tried to play this game on several occasions.....Started it fair number of times.....nothing [​IMG]

    Simply doesn't do it for me, I hate the game, but I understand it's just me, most people call it THE best NDS game....so it must be me [​IMG]

    Anyways, great video, looking forward to seeing the next one!

    it's not exactly 100% real.
    doubt you'd find shadow ramen, or 104 there.
    but the real shibuya has 109 instead, and good chance there's some other ramen shop in the street where shadow ramen and ramen don are.

    While i can understand some people not liking the game, i'd never go so far as to say it's predictable. Maybe some of the themes and characters acted like you'd expect, but i think the ending was a very big shock actually. And all the secret reports you collect enhance that revelation too. And i'd say the ending is very satisfying once you understand all that ended up going on and why everything happened (there is an almighty reason for everything and it all comes full circle eventually).

    The humor sucked me in. I especially loved the Another Day scenario you unlock when you complete the game, it's freaking hilarious! And then you have sho minamimoto, who is just full of epic lulz and quotes (which were probably sadly abused and ruined by 4chan by now). I never took the entire story and all the characters too seriously. Neku's emoness is sort of a parody of the emo movement overall, and it was pretty silly really.

    The gameplay could use some work though. I wasn't a fan of the touch controls during battle and felt they were rather awkward and unresponsive at times. Some of the missions were boring too. I wouldn't call it the BEST game on the DS, but i still liked it a lot. I guess it is overrated, but not to such a high degree as other games i've seen. It is a unique game, i can't imagine anyone saying it's not.

    Yes!
    I absolutely love this game, it's honestly one of my favorite games of all time (and I've played a lot of freakin' games).

    Nicely done!
    The video looked like it was actually made by one of those gaming sites.

    On the game: I've never got inclined to RPG's.
    If you ever get me hooked on to a RPG you've a done a Exxcelent job there.
