Yes, After months of denying myself and refusing to buy it, the chance to play charmander (favorite pokémon) was too much.

I got 6 games with it also.

Zoo Tycoon - Build and manage ultimate dream zoos.

Bomber Man - 100 puzzle-filled stages explode accross two screens, adding crafty new ways to surprise opponents

Monopoly/Boggle/Yahtzee/Battleship 4 in one games

Hamsters - Because theres no such thing as too much cute. Choose a hamster from 5 different breeds and care for him.

Pokémon mysery dungeon Blue rescue team - You wake up as a pokémon and set out on rescue missions in a world ravaged by natrual disasters.

I do love the DS tbh.

I still love my 360 but got bored of my Wii pretty quick due to lack of games. Sony's offerings are crap and still bored of most PC games so for me the DS and 360 are the best picks atm for gaming.

So many good classics for the DS too like Sonic, Mario, Theme Park, Sim City, New Zealand Story, Bubble Bobble (including 2 player Bubble Bobble via wifi! :p), Mario Kart etc. etc.

DS is also region free, the DS itself only costs £90 (£65 if bought in US/Canada). You can get an M3 DS Simply adapter that lets you copy games to it, so less than £130 and a 5gb download and you can have a DS + every game released for it + still have change to buy a carry case or smth ;) Having an M3 DS also lets you play SCUMM games (Day of the Tentacle, Full Throttle, Monkey Island etc.) on it as well as use MSN, play MP3s and play movies. It's a bargain peice of kit all round especially when combined with the M3 simply tbh. Even if you don't get the M3 simply for MP3s/Movies/Downloaded games it's pretty cool though, £5 - £25 for games really aint that bad.

Haven't really played much on the DS, as it is really the Mrs'. I am certainly tempted to get something like Sim City for it :)

Wii is pretty underused atm, as Xest said, due to lack of games. Although I feel there is a lcak of games I really fancy on any format, even my 360 which I have only had a month or 2 is suffering from a lack of games that make me want to spend the money, fortunately Viva Pinata, Gears of War & Crackdown are still keeping me entertained, although last night I even sunk as low as playing Counterstrike... first time in about 6 years I've played a Multi-player FPS on the PC!!! Even single player I haven't played much as I didn't really get into Half-Life 2!!

If you like Crackdown you'll probably like Just Cause (or Saints Row if you can put up with the gangster crap) :) Just Cause is defo one of my favourite 360 games so far.

Enchanted arms if a fantastic RPG, it's combat is turn based, something which, being a fan of action games I thought I'd hate but in fact really, really enjoyed it :) Gun was suprisingly good, a wild west 3rd person shooter that only set me back £13, the only downside is the game is a bit short. Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter 2 rocks, especially online - 16 player coop! Lost Planet is good also of course Blazing Angels absolutely rocks if you like flying games too. Those games are probably the best 360 games I've played tbh outside the three you listed ;) I don't know what your tastes are but I think if you like Gears and Crackdown you should enjoy them - most of them are pretty cheap too now especially as play.com has another sale on, you can pick most of them up for about £15 :)

Saints Row Demo looked good, but not different enough from Crackdown to spend another £30+, although I notice it's down to £25 on Play... another £5 less and I could be tempted :)

Hadn't looked at Just Cause before, the description does sound good and only £18!

I like the idea of GRAW2 especially multi-player Coop, but I played the demo and didn't really get on with it. Considering it was a demo and therefore aimed at people who haven't played it I found the mission much too hard to be fun. I am not the best at shooters, so it could be more my lack of ability than the game being *that* hard, but still not something I can see me getting value for money from.
