I'm almost too embarassed to write about this- almost. Having left the jungle gym behind years ago in favor of pilates classes and Six Feet Under marathons, I thought my days of playing Nintendo were long gone.
Boy, was I ever wrong. I'd like you to meet the Nintendo DS Lite:
Isn't it cute? It's sleek and sexy with an iPod-glossy white finish (or pink...or onyx). With the stylus that comes included, It has the ambience of a personal organizer with all the fun of smashing Goombas and diffusing Bob-ombs (which is a fancy way of saying you can get away with playing Super Mario Bros. on your subway commute even if you're wayyyy out of puberty).
This is the first Nintendo game system with a touch-screen and, get this: the microphone responds to your breathing. You can blow up balloons and make the characters float just by blowing into the mic!
Now, I understand how someone may not be interested in the DS Lite if they didn't grow up with the Super Mario Bros. series. Fair enough. But it's never too late to learn the joy of the ever-popular Madden '07.
Is it weird that I use these terms so casually? It's ok- you can be honest with me.
