Nope, basically when you get a DS from retail, you can only play original commercial games.
If you want to execute custom code, for homebrew or piracy purposes, you have to get an additional device.

Do the characters talk in these ds adventure games and in other ds games? I have been watching some trailers but never hear any voices.

No, they don't talk, besides uttering some very few words..
The only Ds game I can remember seeing having any speech at all is "Elite Beat Agents" From the trailers (I haven't played it yet.. ) he seems to shout "Agents GO!" but apart from some very few words, the ds games have no speech..

Just finished phoenix wright by the way.. Wow!
Can't wait for the next one. I'll have to get hold of touch detective (yes, I have heard the fishy reviews, but I want to try it regardless) and Elite Beat Agents to shorten the wait..

Find a way to get Grim Fandango, Broken Sword and the Discworlds and I'll buy a DSlite for double the price.

With ScummVM you can play certain adventures on your DS, though I believe it's limited to mostly 2D games.

There are 4 episodes in the game, and I just finished episode 2 (five minutes ago). I'm surely gonna solve the other 2 ep's too.

Its not the best adventure game ever, but I dont regret buying the game tbh.
The stories are a li'll bit childish to me, but overall, its still a nice game.
The fact I can play it, while sitting in the li'll room , will do

If I have to compare the fun with another game I played (on pc), I would say "Eye of the Kraken". It doesnt have to do anything with that game at all, but it felt the same to me, when I was playing that game.

I played the following junior adventures on the DS:

That's so Raven

Hanna Montana

Lost in Blue

All were fun and easy to play. Just for junior game players like Touch detective was.

If you can get past the target audience being young - you can enjoy them.

Lost in Blue was EASY to play?
The raftbuilding and furniture-creating mini-games were impossible, as was the constant need to bring food and water to the silly girl in the cave and the struggle to spend hours each day collecting branches and fish and stones and fruit and veggies before going out to explore. Stay out too long and the girl is hungry or thirsty again or your fire dies or you are so tired you can't do anything the next day.

refering back to the emulators, how much a powerful game can you play on the DS? I mean, is it capable of playing more recent games like Broken Sword 2, Full Throttle, Grim Fandango, Discworlds 2 & Noir?

I too quickly lost patience with Lost in Blue. I think I sold it 2 days later.

hmmz, on a sidenote

I once played full throttle on my cellular (windows mobile with scummvm...)
But in the scenes where you have to fight while riding your bike, do they actually work on nds? Since you need a keyboard for those, which also was a problem on scummvm for windows mobile.


btw, I dont think Grim Fandango wil run, since its not supported by scummvm (or am I wrong here...)

No, you're right. Nor are the Discworld games, although the first one might be in the future.

Manic Mansion Fully working
Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders Fully working

I wondered if anyone knows how many ag's there has been released for the GBA? I'm planning to buy the gba versions of Broken Sword (both games have been ported, right?) and I've also seen some mentioning of a Nancy drew game. Any more worth mentioning?

BS2 GBA reached beta but was cancelled I'm afraid.
