just wondering how many other people here have a DS now.

i got mine last week and i now love it to bits :D
it fixed practically everything that was wrong with the GBA, plus the touchscreen is the best thing to ever happen to a handheld. (equivelent of a mouse for FPS's, best ever input for puzzle/mini-games)

though i'll try to make a sort of balanced review:

-the touchscreen is absolutely amazing. in my opinion the best thing to ever happen to a handheld system.
-dual-screens: originally i just assumed it would be a gimmick, but it is usuable and does add a lot to the gameplay.
-battery life: i played the console for a good few hours a night and it took an entire week to discharge for the first time, the quoted 10hours battery life seems spot on.
Wi-Fi- haven't actually used it yet, but seems good in thoery. if nintendo follow up the rumours and enable internet play over home WiFi access points it really will be the killer app for it.
-seems very sturdy and scratch resistant, my friend's PSP is lovely, but looks and feels very fragile.

-it is quite large, but so is the PSP
-graphically a lot worse than a PSP, but still at N64 level, which is still great for a portable system

what really suprised me is just how well it runs on such low spec hardware. the DS has two ARM processors at 33mhz and 66mhz with just 4mb RAM, yet runs games a hell of a lot faster than my smartphone that has a 200mhz ARM CPU and 32mb RAM o.O

if they upgrade to wireless "internet" gameplay.. im all for it. until then.. nope. i just don't see a smash hit, and the games that are comming out are only (touch this and touch that).. GOD! I DONT WANT TO TOUCH.. i want to play a game with the DS, without being forced to use the god damn touchscreen...

but it's a cool thing tho.

Is there any good NFL games for super begineer?
Now I´m in the US, and want to see the NFL at stadium,
but, I don´t know the rule of the football at all...
So, I´m wondering if I can learn it through the video game..

The only football games for the DS, AFAIK, are the Madden NFL series. Most people think they're pretty poor ports, you'd be better off getting them for another console.

I have the PS2 in Japan, but now only the DS.orz..
anyway, thanks!

14 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2006-12-19 07:24 ID:oE9FX9G3

There's also the Eyeshield 21 DS game, but it's only in Japan. It might not cover all the rules, but it's probably enough to get the basics. It looks like it would be more fun for a beginner too.

15 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2006-12-23 08:03 ID:6ZLyPAN0

Eyeshield.. yeah,, I should´ve read it before coming here..

16 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2006-12-23 20:30 ID:oE9FX9G3

You're in luck, Eyeshield has been translated into english and is sold at most large bookstores.

If you get a DS, you can't go without an R4 and a micro SD stick.
