    Seriously entertaining machine. It passes the commuting time for me to get to work with ease and the games are very innovative.

    Buy it, you will not regret it in any capacity.

    Two words: Phoenix. Wright.

    I have yet to meet a gamer who hasn't played it and not been utterly enraptured by its brilliance. And if such a person exists, they probably have no soul. I suggest a stake through the heart, just to make sure.

    I hated Phoenix Wright. I just couldn't get passed the logic jumps you had to make.

    But yeah, the DS is well worth getting. The only thing is if you have massive hands it might be worth getting the original bigger one, if you plan on playing it for longer than an hour. However if you have dodgy eyesight the Lite might be worth going for. Otherwise there's no difference, as far as I know.

    yeah I am looking into getting one too as I have about an hourish commute to work so could be cool to have something to play on the way there or other times I have to wait for something.

    You won't be disapointed if you get a ds. The main diffrence between the ds lite and the original is the lite version is less durable. I have both its really up to you which one you pick.

    what do you mean by its less durable..

    and hmm, that point on having big hands and gettin the older DS. i have a nearly 25 cm palm span. so get the DS lite or the older one?

    The old ds is more solid. Ds lite buttons seems to be softer and the ds lite is slightly more fragile than the original. The DS lite is by no means soft its just that original ds is as solid as a rock. Even though the ds lite is smaller it kinda makes up for it with a larger stylus, brightness settings and the button layout is better too. The lowest setting the ds lite is brighter than the original ds. I think ds lite has a longer battery and faster recharge i could be wrong though. Have you played with either with them? I think you should get the lite version buts its entirely up to you. I know i wouldn't trade my original ds for a lite for free.

    haha just thinking of getting one to pass the time after the exams. i have approx 2 months hols. other than spending time with the girlfriend, worrying out morons woo-ing her, watching rugby at the stadium and just doing nothing.



    just seen my cousin have one. looks pretty fun. but the main reason is because of pokemon. man i havent played that in ages. and when i did last week, i cldnt stop

    Dmx#1 Guest

    Yeah man pokemon is the ****. Im 18 but i kinda feel like a old man when i play it but its real addictive. Have you got wireless broadband? Wifi is pretty cool
     
  12. Caledfwlch

    Caledfwlch Guest

    yep, over here the govt is wiring the whole damn country to wireless. so i guess i cld stroll in to say, mcdonalds and hook up to wifi and beat the **** out of some korean kid WAAAAAAAAAAAAY up north in korea eh?



    you're nvr too old for a handheld. i saw an old man bout 70? in the train 2 nights ago, he was mucking ard with a DS!

    The big difference between the two is the size and the screen brightness. If you can go into a shop and ask to hold the two, you'd be better off. Unless the Lite is way way way too small for you, you should take it. The screen brightness is hugely difference. It's even playable in with direct sunlight on it.

  15. Caledfwlch

    Caledfwlch Guest

    yea i wonder how maple story is going to play on the DS
     
  16. Dmx#1

    Dmx#1 Guest

    Yeah I haven't played the pc version so it'll be interesting to see if the ds one is a worthy adaption. It comes out at around September i'll get to see what all the fuss is about.

    Dmx#1 Guest

    Caledfwlch Guest
