    Rittai (3D) Picross is AWESOME. I love it. I've done 140 puzzles so far (but I've restarted them many many times because I redo them until I get it perfect (3 stars/no misses). It seems to have 300 main puzzles and other assorted puzzles.

    It is pure perfection.

    It is all in Japanese (but with picture tutorials) and can be easily imported for $45. Worth -every- penny and more.

    Since I've gotten my iPod, I never even turn on my DS. I checked the Nintendo website the other day just to see what kind of games they have now and the DS has taken a slide back to me. Absolutely none of the games appeal to me anymore.

    Same, I got my iphone back in July last year, and I'm the exact same way, I haven't even opened my DS once since then... And Nintendo said the iphone would never compare, now their the ones adding a camera to their machine...

    Okay, so does every avid iDevice gamer own a DS that they set aside when they got their iDevice? The same thing happened to me, though after a while I had an "excuse" because my kids broke theirs so I had to give them mine. When I was playing it, though, I'd say my favorite game was Puzzle Quest. I would argue that right up there would have been Advance Wars / Fire Emblem had I ever gotten the DS version of either of those, but the iPod came first :(

    @mrbass: Shining Force Feather? I suppose we'll never see that one in the U.S., huh? I used to love the Shining Force series on the Genesis, and I even liked Shining Soul on the GBA, though most purists said it was a disgrace to its lineage.

    since i got my ipod touch, i haven't touched my ds. even when i had it, i didn't play it a lot. for example, i bought madden 07 for twenty bucks, and played less than five minutes of it. i still regret that buy to this day (think of all the awesome games i could buy with that money for the ipod touch). but my only game that i played a lot and enjoyed a lot on the ds was probly mario kart. that game was the one game i kept playing and playing. very addicting.

    I like Mario Kart because Wifi games are so much fun! That's probably the thing I like most about the DS over my iPod: Online matches that are executed without much lag. There's not too many of those in the app store. However, what you said about the 20 bucks is true. Why pay that much for ONE game when you can get lots of really high-quality games from the app store? That's a major benefit of iPod touch gaming for me.
     
  12. Not sure about Shining Force Feather just here list she sent me telling me which ones her kids like and she likes Rittai Picross.

    Speaking of Rittai Picross this is totally fun. My goal is gonna be solving ones like 2:40 into the video.

    There is an english version of it now.

    If you like picross, you'll like Colour Cross. :)


    Ever since I got the itouch, it's the psp that has gotten put aside.
    For the DS, I liked Rune Factory, Pokemon Platinum, Disgaea. FF Tactics Advance 2 and Advance Wars Days of Ruin was really great too.

    There is?! Link? The Japanese one just came out about a month ago and they usually don't port it that quickly.

    I also own Colour Cross :D

    MrBass, I only understood when she goes babababa in that video lol. She was holding a DSi!

    Picross was released a little more than a year and half ago. (My, how time flies.) There's been an english version for it for quite some time. We are talking about this Picross right?


    Edit: Oh ok, I see, it's my mistake. :eek: Sorry. (Picross 3D is this one.)

    Yep, I started this thread just to hype Rittai Picross, I wasn't really asking for other people's opinions lol ;) But hey, there can never be enough good game recommendations!

    And if you like anything Picross you should really get Rittai Picross.
