WordJong is the DS version of the online tile-based word game. You pull letters off the pile to form words; longer words net you bonuses. With no time limits, it's a nice, low-pressure word game. I have nothing bad to say about WordJong. In fact, I could see someone getting their $19.99 worth out of it.
was both very early and a Homies kart racing game.
My car was a burrito. I'm willing to look past the technical issues of the game, but my car was a burrito.
I have yet to determine whether that's a positive or a negative for the game. It's got to be the first DS game based on capsule toys!
Also on display was the Fullmetal Alchemist
trading card game, which keeps the exact rules and card set of the trading card game-- which means that it was way
too complicated for me to figure out in five minutes.John Deere: Harvest in the Heartland
is a farming sim that differs from Harvest Moon
in both its strict focus on farming (versus Harvest Moon's
relationships) and the ability to purchase John Deere farm equipment. There's enough going on here (planting, feeding, cleaning, building barns/coops/etc., all kinds of farmy stuff) that Harvest Moon
faithful may actually give it a look. Not being a Harvest Moon
or farming person, I just swept up some poop and giggled.
