Gameboy DS games lineup

Wow, I feel like I'm ten years old again. I'm happy and thrilled about this fact. Yet, the masses can be heard to cry, "Why Philippe!? Why do you feel so young!?"

Well, because I was ten years old back in 1989 and in 1989 Nintendo released the Gameboy. It excited me. The shitty graphics, the terrible battery usage, the small screen, and the "too big to fit in your jeans pocket" size. I was a boy in love. Not that I didn't love Nintendo's other products, but there was something about the Gameboy that ignited my gaming spirit.

I never got to own one. It was always just out of reach, and whenever I could reach it, I stumbled and missed and failed miserably to get one. Or they were sold out of the stores at X-mas. Or whatever.

http://www.nintendo.com/ds/index.jspIn fact, the first Gameboy I bought was my Gameboy pocket for 20 bucks, which promptly got stolen from my dorm room, and the now seemingly ancient Gameboy Advance. With no backlight and no internal battery. I never wanted the SP for some reason. I think because I was jealous of the thing. I'm not sure.

But damn, the Gameboy DS has struck a chord with me. I don't know why. It just seems so cool. Dual screens, wireless connectivity built in which, if the rumors be true, will work with a wireless modem. Do you know what that means? It means I can go to Bryant Park and play a game of Mario Golf with Johnson while he's in Boston. How sick good is that?

Also, in a shocking twist, every developer that has the ability to make video games is downright begging to be let in on the fun. Nintendo, also in a shocking twist, is letting damn near everyone who wants to make a game make a game.

Perhaps it's not that amazing. After all, the Gameboy is the best-selling game system in the history of gaming systems. Hell, come to NYC sometime and try not to ride the subway and see at least two in every car.

http://www.nintendo.com/ds/index.jspSo the DS is going to have one of the more amazing starting lineups of any system I've ever seen. And since it's backwards-compatible with the Advance/SP, There's already a slew of games. And you can wirelessly connect to the Gamecube with it. And they're making it a big part of the N5 (whatever that happens to be).

So yay! I'm excited. Excited as a ten year old boy again! Except that my testicles have long since dropped so now I'm also sporting a raging erection. If only I had a girl to put it in! Or had a DS (not to have sex with, you silly perverts) to distract me from the fact that I haven't had a girlfriend in months. And the only person I've had sex with is Johnson's girlfriend...oops wasn't s'posed to say that. Anyway, check out the selection of games and gaming companies:
