    Hey there! It's me again! The same guy who tried to pitch the Hitman (Agent 47) and Survival Project DS idea. As of right now, I thought of another idea after reading about Final Fantasy Tactics. When I was younger, there was a game my friends and I would all play called Tactics Arena Online. Basically, it's a dumbed down version of Final Fantasy Tactics. There are no changes in the terrain, just a flat out chess board. You have your mages, warriors, clerics, monsters, and what not. I was hoping that someone could remake it for the DS and include WiFi play. Maybe I should pitch the idea to the original owners of Tactics Arena, but I doubt they'd do it, so I turn to you guys. For those of you who are not familar with the game, here's the link: http://www.tacticsarena.com/play/. Give a try and tell me if it's possible to be remade/ported to the DS with it being a browser game and all.

    Alright. Here's the deal.

    First off - No matter how good the idea? You're going to have a terrible time finding anybody to do it.

    Anybody who CAN develop for the DS, and who wants to, is already working on their own projects.

    Also, you can only 'port' a piece of software if you have the original source. Which I assure you, they won't be interested in releasing.

    That being said? I think it's a good idea. There's no reason the DS couldn't handle the game, the liblobby library provides support for adhoc multiplayer between two handhelds, and it's a good game.

    Well, Tapper is partially right. The real issue is that Seed is busy with "life" last I checked. Also, off the subject FF Tactics blows.
