I have purchased a Nintendo DS. I’ve been meaning to for a while (there is an eight hour flight in my future), and the drought of new, good games on the 360 – which will last until september – convinced me that now is the time to strike.
I don’t have much else to say, really. I only have one game, Super Mario Bros. I like everything about the system so far: the size, weight, look and feel, the battery life. I’ve ordered a CycloDS Evolution, which enables one to run homebrew code, and to store a mass amount of game ROMs on a memory chip. I’ll write up the experience once it actually occurs, but I’m excited – there are a couple music programs for the DS that I’m looking forward to trying.
The downside, so far, is playing games in bed. I really shouldn’t be allowed to do that.
