I highly recommend getting Contact for DS as it's a most excellent RPG. And yes, I know what you guys are thinking, "Akito, you only like it because the scientist looks like an Earthbound character lol." But no, it's much more than that.

The game is sort of hard to describe, so I'll break it down for you. Basically, battles happen automatically: you move close to the enemy, press the button to go into battle mode, and then you'll start attacking it. You can also command the character to use a skill for extra damage. It's pretty simple. But what really sets the game apart is stat building. Rather than gaining experience points that go into raising levels, all of your stats go up individually. For example, simply running will cause your speed stat to level up. Using a cooking utensil as a weapon will increase your strength, your cooking skill, and the appropriate weapon-type skill. You can even kill people in towns, which can lower your karma (this is sometimes useful when they're in your way).

So yeah, go give it a try. I don't want to be the only one playing it.

Recently I have come into a money sink. I can't really be buying rpgs left and right like I used to.....evcen though I just recently bought Tales and DS together.....

Hopefully, I can get some rpgs for my upcoming birthday or even for some nice X-mas gifts or something.

As of right now, I have to make do with what I already own.

Just beat it today. It was a little too short (took me about 13 hours or so), but it would probably be well over 20 hours for completionists. Quite an awesome game overall, and probably the first satisfying RPG experience on DS. With that completed, I decided to start on Magical Starsign, which also looks to be quite awesome. It's amazing that it took DS so long to finally get some good RPGs.
