In only a few day my willpower was slowly ground into small quivering pieces until I finally broke and bought myself a DS Lite and a couple of games.
Broke, in this case, can then also describe my financial situation.
Not to misunderstand though. It’s a very nice machine and I am glad I got one. The screens in particular are so nice and clear that they in them selves justify the new version. If, like me, all you had before is a standard GBA, the difference is close to divine.
My favourite of the two games I bought is Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney. A adventure-puzzle-courtroom drama game with an excellent cast of colourful* characters.
My only problem is probably brought about by watching to many Americans on TV go “innocent until proven guilty” and “beyond reasonable doubt”. In this game it seems that once you are on the stand it is “guilty until proven beyond any reasonable doubt whatsoever to be innocent, honest” and that irks me a little bit.
But the feeling of slowly picking apart the real murderers statement is awesome. Highly recommended.
* Here in the metaphorical sence, but did I mention the screens?
