    there has been something going around about DS lites getting cracks on their hinges. if that happens to you call customer support and they will let you get it fixed. and you should get a WiFi connector so you can play online. MP hunters is so much better online than off

    Good list! You made some excellent choices there.

    To avoid scratching the touch screen o the following things:
    • use only the stylus on the touch screen
    • keep to lid closed at all times when you are not playing
    • make sure nobody else plays it :wink:
    • try to avoid dropping things on it
    • Basically, just be careful

    If you do all that then you shouldn't need to by a screen protector.

    Lucky for you there are are some good Castlevania games on the GBA, these are 'Castlevania: Circle of the Moon' and 'Castlevania: Double Pack'. Castlevania: Double Pack contains 'Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow' and 'Castlevania: Harmony of Dissoance' so I would specially recommend picking that one up.

    As for Sonic games the only one I would recommend getting is Sonic Advance 2. Don't get any other Sonic games as they're not very good (with the exception of Sonic Advance one which is OK).

    Two side scrolling games also worth getting are 'Metroid Fusion' and 'Metroid Zero Mission'. Both are very good so I reccomend you get them both.

    4 more excellent side scrolling games are; Mario Advance 1, 2, 3 and 4. All four of these games are ports of the SNES Mario games ( Super Mario Advance 1= Super Mario Bros 2, Super Mario Advance 2= Super Mario World, Super Mario Advance 3= Yoshi's Island and Super Mario Advance 4= Super Mario Bros 3) so if don't own the SNES versions then all 4 of these are worth getting.

    The 3 Donkey Kong Country games have also been ported onto the GBA, so if you don't own the SNES versions then all three of these are worth getting.

    Don't worry though, not all side scrolling GBA games are ports of SNES games. Heres some good side scrollers which AREN'T ports (yes they do excist;) ):

    Astro Boy Omega Factor
    Gunstar Future Heros (I THINK this is a side scroller)
    Ninja Cop
    Wario Land 4 (excellent game)
    Mario & Donkey Kong (very good)


    Of course side scrollers aren't the only good games on the GBA. Here is a list of good non-sidescroller games on the GBA:

    Advance Wars
    Advance Wars Black Hole Rising
    Final Fantasy IV Advance
    Final Fantasy Tactics Advance
    Fire Emblem:D
    Fire Emblem Sacred Stones
    Mario & Luigi: Super Star Saga
    The Legend of Zelda: A Link to The Past/ Four Swords (port of SNES version)
    The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap
    Pokemon Ruby/ Sapphire
    Mario Kart Super Circuit
    Pokemon Leaf Green/ Fire Red
    Pokemon Pinball
    Wario Ware

    Out of all the games I've mentioned just get the ones that sound good to you;) .
