This ThurDSay: Advance Wars Days of Ruin or Tetris DS?


Hey guys, just a quick one today, because my girlfriend's in town and any amount of time spent writing stuff on a gaming blog and not actually hanging out with her is time wasted.

Last ThurDSay, after a bunch of people expressed interest in playing some Mario Kart DS, a grand total of three people showed up (including myself). Let's try and beat the record and get four this week! Only thing left to decide, what are we playing?

There has been some interest expressed in both Tetris DS and Advance Wars: Days of Ruin. My only concern is that Advance Wars matches literally take several hours to complete, and are usually only finished due to attrition rather than one CO outplaying the others. This is alleviated with the pre-deployed maps (no bases/airports/harbors = no new units), but those are unfortunately less fun.

Still, Advance Wars is a viable option. So let's have a vote. Advance Wars: Days of Ruin, or Tetris DS? Let me know now, and then show up in Ventrilo this Thursday at 7 PM PST.
