OK, so I'm a little late for the Nintendo DS bandwagon, but I just bought two DS Lite's, one for myself, and the other for my wife. And I must say, this little guy is the best console purchase I believe I've ever made. Since we've had them, we've spent more time playing it than any other game system we have (What's WoW again?).
I am absolutley amazed at how fun the games are, and especially the WiFi abilities. I booted up New Mario Bros. last night and my wife downloaded the MP and joined up. The Puzzle games are quick and fun, but MP mario was the absolute win. And Mario Kart DS online or with a friend over WiFi? Hawtness on a stick.
Am I alone in my admiration of such a simple concept becoming the new cornerstone of my gaming habit? Anyone else intoxicated by the DS goodness? Share your experiences with this little box of addiction.
PS. Also, you need to look into the Movie Player for the DS if you have one, it does music, movies, ebooks, and *gasp* GBA/NES roms. I've yet to test the latter feature, but the rest are awesome. This is exactly what I thought I would miss from my PSP, now I have it on DS, with no new discs to buy for movies I already own.
