As a fan of the puzzle genre, Professor Layton is a top-notch series. If you're looking into other puzzle games, you may want to try out Henry Hatsworth and Meteos(an all time favorite). I'm just getting back into the DS scene, so I'm there with you. :)
Yes, yes. The second Layton is coming out soon so you might as well go and get the first!
The DSi is worth it. And everyone will be wanting one when that flipnote thing comes out. You might want to wait until Christmas and hope for more colors but if you don't care... meh.Flipnote? whats that? More colors huh? Eh think I'll probably just get the black personally. can't ever regret getting black since it always looks conservative right :)?
