Last weekend I purchased a Nintendo DS Lite. I ment to post about it earler but I wanted to make sure I had some time to get some games before making a post regarding the device. I got some pretty decent deals with some of my saved up gift cards and store credits. So far I’m more then happy with my purchase and plan on purchasing multiple games for this device.
On June 11th I went to CC and made the purchase. I had a coupon for a free game and was planning on getting their freebee of a free case as well. The counter jockey would not give me both free items so I settled on the free game rather then the free case. The game is worth more and I would rather buy a case I want rather then one that kinda sucks.
So far I have five games. Oddly enough I’ve been playing more GBA games then my DS games. I haven’t owned a handheld console since the orginal Game Boy so I have a lot of catching up to do. I miss playing classic games and this is about the best way to experience these titles. The DS Lite screen is so bright and clear and is perfect for just sitting around and enjoying a nice quick jab of gaming. Also replaying some of my childhood favorites makes me want to mod my xbox more and more so I can play older titles anytime I want. I’ll post about that some other time…
Personally I recommend getting a DS Lite. One down side I can see is the size of the device itself. Larger hands may have some problems. My hands cramp up a little bit and I’m quite tiny. Other then that the price point is perfect abit with games being a tad over priced IMHO. If anybody has any questions please don’t hesitate to ask. Thumbs up from vanlandw.
