Now I don’t want to get a new mobile phone…I’ve been salivating over the pink Sony Ericsson Z610i for the longest time, and while I still want to get one soon, I’m putting it on hold because…I’m going to get myself a Nintendo DS Lite. In pink, of course 😀
Actually, the reason why I couldn’t let go of my ancient Nokia phone is that I am very much attached to the games it has…matagal ko pinaghirapan yung high scores dun no! I found out that the games are only for Nokia phones so if I change phones, I won’t be able to play Nature Park (aka Tetris). I don’t even know why it’s called Nature Park…it’s not even a park, and the closest thing to “Nature” is the animals that appear at the right corner every time I level-up. Cute. ^_^
So, back to the DS. There are so many games I want to play in DS. I will probably buy Mario Cart together with the console, as the game pack doesn’t come with any game cartridge. Also, I read somewhere that the DS ‘Kira Game’ is now available – not locally but I think I can get it online. The game is like Cluedo, only you have to find out who among the characters is the real Kira. It is not necessarily Yagami Light; even L can be the Kira, so it’s really cool.
Then, I can get this 200万漢検 cartridge for Kanji review. The Kanken is the Kanji exam for native Japanese speakers, but I think it is also useful for JLPT people. Also not locally available, will have to buy online from a Japanese retailer.
One nice thing about the DS Lite is the fact that it is backward compatible with almost all Game Boy Advance games, which cost less than DS games. The DS Lite console has this slot in front, but a GBA game protrudes slightly so the nice DS people included a plastic thingie that’s supposed to be a dust cover for the GBA cartridge. Pogi points na ito talaga.
Just a few days ago, DS was in a “Japan Video Topics” segment; the DS multimedia features rocked. Unfortunately, most of them are available in Japan only. But who knows, I might find myself in Japan sooner or later. ^_~
I want, I want, I want!!
PS: Comment ko lang…masaya ako dito sa bagong kumpanya, marami na akong kaibigan. Meron lang akong ilang hindi gusto, pero di naman ako nag-iisa. Hehe…pero sa ibang post na yun. Natatawa lang ako sa mga ibang katrabaho ko. Kahapon lang, nalaman ko na yung katabi ko (girl 1), isang street lang ang layo sa bahay. Tapos, kaninang umaga, nag-uusap sila ng isa kong teammate (girl 2)…nagbreak si girl 1 at ang boypren niya, at ang lakas nila mag-usap ni girl 2 tungkol dun. Naiiyak pa si girl 1, pero keri lang, todo usap pa rin sila. Ngayon, nakikinig siya ng senti music, may katabing tissue. Ayos. ^_^
