... Because I'm never going to get any work done now! It rocks!

Brought it on the Thursday night midnight opening thing. I could've waited but it was quite a novelty to do that, of course in Bognor Regis it wasn't like there was any lines anyway.

Got it home, out of the package, hmm.. bit bigger than I remembered started it up. Ooh Yeah!

I don't find the touchscreen at all gimmicky, it is a well worked in way to play games, on the Metroid Demo it played almost like a keyboard-mouse combo on a PC and is easily the best FPS I've played on any 'console' platform!

I also got SuperMario DS with it, absolutley amazing, due to the small screen and higher resoluton it remarkably resembles Mario Sunshine on the GameCube.

The nice people at the store, (who I'm doing my best to get chummy with) also gave me a free 'Touch me' t-shirt! I'm a fanboy! WHOOO!

I'm attracted by the potential for reckless abuse of power.

Word. I wanted to hate that thing - I really did; not because I don't like Nintendo (I love them!) but because I didn't want Nintendo to go gimmicky (some traditionalism is really nice.) However, this thing is great. I can't deny it - I love the DS... the backwards combatibility, the gameplay, it's great. I don't have one, but I really really enjoy the 'DS.

'Go' gimmicky? Does no-one else remember the Virtual Boy? Gimmicky incarnate, that was.

The DS does look pretty nifty, but being a simple peasant boy, I'll have to make do with my GBA SP - shiny and red as it is.
