So I guess now that my DS Lite is finally in hand, I should really update my Friend Codes. Here’s what I’ve got:
- Mario Kart DS: 0473-1280-7788
- Tetris DS: 3595-2100-5993
- Metroid Prime Hunters: 4209-7496-2722
You’ll notice a lack of Animal Crossing on that list. This is by design; after playing an hour each day for six weeks, I swore off the game in an effort to reclaim my life. No MMO will ever claim me, even if it’s disguised as a flower-growing simulator.
Anyway, I’m sort of buried beneath work at the moment, gurgling in despair at the crushing load of my full-time work, plus writing a good half of the next issue of Pocket Games, plus producing an ungodly number of FFXII previews (still)… and then there’s the 1UP cover story on its way soon, the bulk of responsibility for which has been dumped in my lap. I know, whine whine whine. The point is: once all of that is out of the way, I’m totally going to start demanding you people play Mario Kart and Tetris with me. The Lite has an effect similar to that of the GB Micro in that it makes you appreciate just how nice older games really looked despite the weak screen technology of the original hardware, thus kindling a desire to re-experience those games anew. Of course, before I can hop online against people I know I’ll need everyone to share their friend codes — especially those of you doing the Tango de Lite Upgradio yourselves. So hop to it, kids.
