    I think its safe to say that there are some long awaited games here. Its been a while but this week the DS line up looks better than the Wii. I'm sure some pisser will go into the thread and say "meh nothing for me", some people are never happy.

    These dates are what retailers say is out unless stated otherwise, sometimes they <b>make </b>dates up for pre-ordering purposes so not all can be trusted. These dates could also be <b>"shipping dates"</b> which usually means that that's the date when games get <b>shipped </b>to stores so a game could either be in stores on that day or <b>after</b>.

    Some games may get <b>delayed </b>some others not listed may appear but at the moment of posting these are correct. Also just because a game is released in stores it <b>doesn't</b> mean that they'll appear on our internets but NA titles usually appear on our 'nets Wednesday night UK time.

    Have patience and remember scene releases are not a right but a privilege.<!--colorc--></span><!--/colorc-->

    The first GBA game is the best of the series though if reviews are to believed, this one is better.
    <!--quoteo--><div class='quotetop'>QUOTE</div><div class='quotemain'><!--quotec-->Fawful tricks Bowser into eating a magic mushroom. The mushroom causes Bowser to begin inhaling everything around him, including Mario, Luigi and Princess Peach! Do the Mario Bros. have the guts to rescue Peach and escape?

    * Players are in control of two separate storylines. One features Bowser and his efforts to stop an arch-villain from taking over his castle. Meanwhile, inside Bowser, the microbe-sized Mario & Luigi must muscle their way through challenges and keep their nerve if they want to find a way out. They take action to control Bowser from the inside – but without his knowledge
    * Players can switch between storylines at will. What happens inside Bowser affects what he's doing on the outside. Sometimes Mario & Luigi must solve puzzles and challenges behind the scenes to help Bowser overcome various obstacles and advance the plot
    * Players must make well-timed button presses to enhance their performance during battles and challenges. In some battles, Bowser grows so large that players must turn their Nintendo DS or Nintendo DSi system sideways, blow into the microphone or tap on the touch screen with the stylus to keep up with the action
    * The game features the same hilarious dialogue that has been the hallmark of the Mario & Luigi series<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->
    I can see The Sun headlines "Parents Up In Arms Over Mario Drug Use Plot". While I enjoyed the last DS game it had some things that peed me off a bit but it still had the humour and soem very good gameplay. This game is slightly different this time around as once you get inside Bowser it becomes more of a RPG platform game.

    The 3rd DS game though its an RPG this time and not a fighter. Its also not handled by Treasure. If you want another Treasure Blach game then look out for Bleach Versus Crusade on the Wii.
    <!--quoteo--><div class='quotetop'>QUOTE</div><div class='quotemain'><!--quotec-->Bleach: The 3rd Phantom marks the first time the series ventures into the Strategy RPG genre. A spinoff from the main narrative, this Bleach videogame features an exclusive storyline that has been created from the ground up while being supervised by Tite Kubo, the author and creator of Bleach. Shedding light on events that transpire before the animated series begins, players get to choose who they want to play as the story centers between two fraternal Soul Reaper twins, Fujimaru Kudo and his sister Matsuri Kudo.

    With a cast of over fifty playable characters, players will discover a wide range of dynamic personalities as they journey through the game. With each character having their own unique skills and strengths, players will be able to adapt to any situation as they build an army of up to eight Soul Reapers. Multiplayer is also featured which allows up to two players to battle head-to-head via Wireless Mode.<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->
    Reviews so far have been meh so maybe one only for the fans.

    The biggest DS title of the year? I'd say so. Biggest game of the year...maybe.
    <!--quoteo--><div class='quotetop'>QUOTE</div><div class='quotemain'><!--quotec-->Scribblenauts goes by the concept, "Anything you write, you can use." The hero Maxwell has the power to utilize items in levels called Starites which allow him to later spawn material in the real world for his needs. Ladders, tools, weapons ... goldfish, even.

    A game to last a very long time, even once you have finished it you'll go back to try new words that have popped into your head. One of those games that'll be unique to each player that plays it as there are so many waysto finish each level. Thank you 5th Level for creating a game to make me excited about DS gaming again. Hopefully people will buy this game as the developers deserve the sales and it'll show publishers that people want original games.

    While this is a Japanese title, the menus will apparently be in English. This will be released by Majesco (who have lately rescue Gauntlet for the DS) and they'll be releasing it in the West though they haven't said when. Hopefully it'll be a good arcade racer for the DS. Famitsu gave it 29/40 but then they always seem to rate arcadey titles low.

    Agreed.
    Especially if it has some kind of new anti-flashcart protection.

    I can't believe that I'm finally going to have to clear some space off my EZ-Flash V for this week's awesomeness.

    Yeah, if it has a new anti-flashcard protection, this forum is going down....
    I would be surprised if it didn't have a new protection actually.

    It looks like IL-2 Sturmovik and Crash King will be my next games.

    I really don't understand the hype for Scribblenauts.....it doesn't look all that great to me.

    If you ask me, Ninty is retarded for canceling DS Air. I guess it wasn't cutesy enough for them or they figure 5-12 year old kids (who they seem to cater to nowadays) wouldn't like it. Apparently they don't care about anyone else who may want games that are something other than kiddie-cutesy. OH! I know! They didn't want to bother setting up the online portion in America......they would actually have to DO SOMETHING for that to happen and that would take time away from all their piracy finger-pointing.


    So, you say Gauntlet may yet get released by Majesco? Nice.
