    Before heading out to BotCon, I discovered my Advance SP was dead. Doesn't hold a charge or the charger won't accept the charge, whatever, it doesn't work. And I was hoping to get Rosa, Palom, and Porom's final weapons on FFIV during my flight.

    Now I want a DS Lite and I'm already planning to pick up some older GBA games I missed out on (FFI&2, Zelda: LttP), as well as New Super Mario Bros and Mario Kart. I can afford it, my two jobs bring me in over $500 every week (average nearly $2500 a month right now).

    Should I do it?

    Yes, the DS lite is quite a good piece of technology.

    Definitely. I love my DS, so many great games, with more to come. New Super Mario Bros and Mario Kart are both amazing, and couple all of that with being able to play all your old GBA stuff it's definitely worth it.

    I vote YES!

    Yeah you should def go for it. The DS lite is Amazing and leaps and bounds above the Advance. I traded my advance in on my DS lite. Just don't get the DS, it's bulky and huge.

    The new mario kart DS is really good, and is the new super mario bros. I also like the lego star wars two. It's a good purchase.

    I think everyone on here who has one will give you nothing but praise about it. I play it constantly. Even getting emulation back on my psp still wasn't enough for me to pick it up long term. The DS lite is my primary video game unit.

    Right now I am hooked on Metroid Pinball.

    Definatly worth the purchace. Its something different to everything else out there, but in a good way.

    I hated NSMB thougth, 15 years since SMW and the best they could do was an overgimmicked semi remake of SMB.

    I'm with the "Yes" crowd. Definitely a great handheld system.

    Does that include wearing a shirt that is probably grafted to your body through excessive masturbation?

    And this thread was just an excuse to post about how much you are earning.

    It would be better if we twisted it in to how much you're masturbating.

    Only 1 today :(

    I caved in and went to 6 stores to get a black one (it's okay, I was on the clock, technically, but hey, when we run out of stores to work in we can call it a day and just make the time up another day).

    But I didn't buy any DS games.

    I found Super Mario Advance 2 (Super Mario World) for $19.99 and Zelda: A Link to the past Advance for $19.99 as well. I figure the older GBA games will be gone after Christmas, but DS games will still be available.

    Its a great system, with great games, I recomend picking up Castlevania Dawn of Sorrow, For games about to come out, Contact, Castlevania Portrait of Ruin, and of course FFIII and Zelda: The Phantom Hourglass are worth looking into.

    I plan to pick up a used "Final Fantasy I & 2", as well as pick up "Super Mario Bros. Advanced 4: Super Mario Bros. 3". Sadly those are both GBA games, :lol . My first DS games are going to be New Super Mario Bros. and Mario Kart DS.

    It sucks that FF VI doesn't come out till next year, at this point I wonder why they are bothering with a gba release.
