I was on my way to pick up food before going back to the hotel and stopped in a Gamestop. I looked at their used DS games and got:
Hotel Dusk: Room 215 - $2.99 - Cing adventure game I keep meaning to play. Now I can play it!
Legendary Starfy - $4.99 - Fourth entry in the Starfy series, a platformer by TOSE (who ghost developed like… everything). It’s for babies but it’s also super cute.
De Blob 2 - $3.99 - Everybody talked about how great the first one was on Wii and I’m a sucker for clever downports, but… based on the first level this is nothing like the original Wii game. It’s an adequate platformer (the setting reminds me of Splosion Man), but not the weird “paint everything” action game the original was. I dunno, I think I’m done with it after the first twenty minutes.
Zubo - $2.99 - I had never heard of it and so I googled it at the store and it got decent reviews so I picked it up. It’s a kids RPG by EA with a rhythm-based battle system (and really superb animation). I don’t remember it at all. It’s actually got some cool things going on (even if it’s for babies). Also, looking at the receipt, it looks like it was actually $0.00 because of some promo (promo 16274?) so that’s cool, I guess?
I never buy stuff from Gamestop anymore but something about being out of town and bored lowered my inhibitions. I don’t know why I did this! I already have plenty of DS games. I guess just the chance to mess around with a few DS games I never played and/or heard of (and the chance to finally force myself to get Hotel Dusk, and for dirt cheap) made me do it.
