Ok, you might not have heard about this game.  It is an action RPG coming out for the DS and is very Earthbound like.  For those of you who don't know what Earth bound is Wiki it.  So,  it has you controling this guy, Terry, and the bottom screen has great graphics (but it's nothing compared to FF3).  The ad in Nintendo Power is pretty funny and odd and I think the whole games like that cause you use stickers to increase your powers and stuff (wtf?) and you where Costumes to have special abilities.  And they have this whole thing about "It's not you playing a character you've never played, your're playing as you" or somthing like that but anyway this game is looking really neat, comes out the 19th of September in U.S. and always,  Europe gets it late.  In Europe it's sometime in October.  Also, the whoel thing about the player being a character is that the Profeser in the top screen needs to contact, hence the name, Terry again to help him find power cells to repair the Ship.  Enough blathering, check it out your self.

Edit:Nevermind, the url thingy being bitchy.  Just go to Wikipedia, search it and choose Contact for the DS.

Yeah, this game looks really weird, but the WiFi part sounds like the first really creative use so I'll probably buy it.

Link is down, but sounds interesting and familiar. I think I read about it some where before but I can't remember.

It was in Nintendo Power if any of you read that.  I personally think this is gonna be a sleeper hit, but hey I could be wrong.

I don't read any magazines anymore. Assuming you are talking to me.

I did read one called (danish) PC Gaming World, but it closed down and the people there were absorbed into another magazine. Which wasn't nearly as good.

No MegaMan ZX or Harvest Moon? Phoenix Wright 2? Yggdra Union? (Though you can play that on the Gba  :D )
How about the new Zelda or FFIII? Or the new Castlevania?

None of those games catch your interest at all?  :-\

I cannot fathom anyone trading in their DS unless it's to get a DS Lite. Seriously. It has a great catalog of games at this point, and it's only going to get stronger. This holiday season looks like a nuclear weapon directed at my wallet.

The ending to this game almost makes up for the fifteen hours of pure stat grinding.

I have it but have yet to really get into it much.  So far it's an interesting take on RPGs.  I've found it to be quite hard though.  To the point where I'm going to have to start grinding stats.  Danzik is not happy about this...

The only portable game system I have is Gameboy Advance.  Why did they never create a 3d game for that?  Hey, if they could do it on those crappy computers with Wolfenstein, I'm pretty sure you could do it with a Gameboy...
