At least, give it an emulation try eh?
Independent reviews since 1999.
Like Shawn said the PSP, 360, PS2 and PC have certainly not had dry spells recently.[/QUOTE]
You are SO wrong. The DS has a terrible droubt going. I don't think the 360 has had a ton of games, I'll give you that, but to say EVERY other system is in a dry spell is insane. I don't know about the PS2 (I haven't followed it that closely) but the PSP hasn't. It is so bad for the DS that IGN didn't even give it a "game of the month" award for July. Why? Because it had like 4 games released in that month and they were all crap. Don't get me wrong, I like the DS a bunch but other the SMB there hasn't been a thing that grabs my attention. Like I said though, with the holiday season and the Wii I am sure there will be quality games out for it soon. I just hope that this disasterous 3rd party support for the DS isn't a sign of things to come.
You know shawn if you had bothered to actually read the posts above you would understand no one said the ds had anything good coming out. And now you yourself admit nothing is out on the 360, and you don't follow the ps2. So lets take a stap at the psp shall we? We have gradius collection and tekken, what else looks worth playing on the psp? Not much, like I said all the good stuff comes out later this year. So do us all a favor and give it a rest.
I love how Saturn jumps on everybody's posts. Anyway, the fact is simple, the DS's library has been pathetic this year save for a few games. I own a PS2 but I have been concentrating on the 360 and the PSP. I will say that GRAW, LOTR, Table Tennis and Dead Rising absolutely destroy the garbage that has come out for the DS over the last few months (save Mario). As far as the PSP I have been playing Field Commander, Miami Vice, Loco Roco Demo (the demo alone is better then most of the recent DS titles), Valkryie Leneth, Tomb Raider, Race Driver 2006, etc, etc. Should I continue? Because I can. Ya know what? Last year when I bought my PSP I was pissed b/c the games absolutely sucked (except for Ridge Racer) and I was ready to throw it in the trash. But now, especially with the upcoming games the system is awesome. Why can't you Fanboys just be men (or women) and accept the fact that the quality games for the DS have been few and far between and that the system is going to struggle to get proper 3rd party support. That doesn't mean it isn't going to change b/c I am sure it will. For what it is worth I really enjoy my DS but there is only so much mileage I can get out of Mario and Metroid Pinball. This just proves my point. You can't say a single thing bad about Nintendo on this site w/o the fanboys jumping all over you. I think I will just stick to checking out the reviews. This part of the site blows.
Shawn you are insane, truly insane. Apperently you just see what you want, NOBODY has said ANYTHING contrary to what you said earlier about the DS not having good games now. Really not one person, yet somehow we are all "nintendo fanboys" for reasons I can't truly figure out. I've said all summer the DS has had nothing worth playing. I'm real sick of dealing with you calling everyone a fan boy nonsense. Nobody here is, or at least not a nintendo one. YOU ARE the one that turned this into a psp Vs. DS debate not anyone else. So cut the crap.

"This part of the site blows."
Then don't visit it. That would make you and everyone else very happy.
I would hardly call Table Tennis, Prey, Chromehounds, Battle for Middle Earth, Moto GP 06 and Dead Rising all coming out over the past two months a drought. All of those games are meant to be very good or excellent.
Then there is the fact that the 360 has been receiving classic games (like Dig Dug and that fishing port game) ONCE PER WEEK!!!!
So over the past two months you can add Street Fighter 2, Cloning Clyde and Pac Man to that list of awesome games.
Yeah such a drought.
