Game time!

November 3, 2009

I got a free Nintendo DS Lite (2nd gen)!! A friend bought himself a brand new DS, we were chatting about the pricematch he got on it thanks to his new Google phone the other day, and out of the blue, he offered to mail his old one to me.  It’s darling.  White, shiny, little, probably fits in a jacket pocket.

This pretty much requires that I spend money.  Oops.  I won’t be rushing out to buy everything immediately because I didn’t budget anything for fun accessories and don’t have time to play it anyway but this is the wish list:

First, a screen protector: The Hori Protector runs about $10.

Second, a protective skin: Perhaps Depths by Lawrence Yang?
Loose Leaf by Derek Prospero?
Sugar Head In The Sky by Brandi Milne?
The Enamored Whale by Alberto Cerriteno

Third, A Game!  I have no idea what game I want yet. I’m just pretty much elated to have a little gaming device of my very own for the first time. We shared a Gameboy when I was a kid, but all the games were pretty much my brother’s, so I played on sufferance.

I liked Professor Layton when I tried it on one friend’s DS, was completely bored by Cooking Mama when I tried it on another.  Should I go with a puzzle game?  I hear there’s a form of Bejeweled coming out sometime, or perhaps an RPG? The World Ends with You could keep me occupied for-ev-er.  Ooh or! I could maybe get My Japanese Coach

Whatever I choose, it’ll have to wait until I’ve saved up enough Swagbucks to redeem for Amazon gift certificates.  And I only have 89 SB right now so… this could be a while.  S’ok, I’m happy enough for now. 🙂

  1. Lucky! 🙂

    I am a Bejeweled, Tetris and Pokemon and Cake Mania fiend

    It is why I cannot own any gaming system, I will get addicted

    This is also a comment to let you know Safari is working fine with your commenting section

    I guess it was just my BS internet connection

  2. I cannot say enough good things about the first Professor Layton game. I’m asking for the next one for Christmas. The only annoying thing is that it’s not very replayable – some of the trick questions are too easy once you know the trick.

    I’m a big fan of the Zelda series of games, and I though the Phantom Hourglass was a lot of fun to play!

    FB: Ohhh I’m trying to resist Bejeweled and Tetris — I would never ever stop playing!!

    Thanks for checking up on the site again!

    paranoidasteroid: That’s the one thing that kept me from going straight for Prof. Layton — replayability. I realize I have a bad memory, but would like my game to have more longevity. Thanks for the other recommendations, I’ll definitely take a look!

    So, I go to Game Crazy and buy my daughter used games for $20 and under. And she’s never complained. Great score!

    Glad to be back in Cali? 😉
