DS Craving

For the two weeks, ever since Alon retold his story of giving away ten billion DS Lites, I have had an odd, irrational craving to own one. I have no freakin' clue why.

Now that the next round of console wars are coming to a head, I've been watching Wii and PS3 news with tepid anticipation. When I'm at home, I really don't have any free time. But the 12.8 minutes ad must have imbued itself into the part of my brain that rationalizes irrational purchases - because I came to the realization the only console I'd have a chance playing would be a portable one.

Now it's not like I just figured out what a DS is. Or that I was unfamiliar with the titles currently out there. But for some unknown reason a confluence of the form factor, Alon's giveaway and the realization that my time is transient all gave me this unprompted hankerin'. Now all I can think about is how I don't have a DS. I don't even necessarily need one. But dammit... somehow the irrational rationalization neurons are firing in freakin' overdrive.

GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!

I wonder how terrible of a process it is to become an "authorized developer".

  1. I would go with a black DS Lite if I were to get one. I would think the white would look dirty after a while.

  2. Yeah, the Onyx Black is pretty tight. The only complaint I've heard about it is that it shows fingerprints, smudges and scuffs more than white (kinda like the PSP). I kinda thought the same thing about the Polar White, tho. Although the Polar White has the nifty Mac Aqua-ish look to it.

    GAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!! I can't stop thinking about it...

  3. You could always get the pink one. ;-)

    But, I think if I were you, get it and then I would also pick up New Super Mario Brothers.

    I have yet to get one either. But, when I do, I'll pick up Onyx Black. Black is much cooler then the Polar White. I went with the black iPod too.

  4. I'd be all over Custom Robo Arena and FFIII. PLUS they have an Opera browser coming out, AND an MP3 player cart. But all four of those won't be out until December.

    Oh, and I'm ALL about BrainAge.
