Dear Nintendo,

Why on Earth would I buy a DSi? I am perfectly content with my shiny, black DS Lite, and all of its capabilities. I have no desire to let a Warioware game make me look like a fool, and I can see no other use for 2 cameras other than gimmicky “you’re in the game!” games. I understand that the DSi has a slimmer size, however, the hand cramps I get after 30 minutes of Moon, or Metroid make a smaller device┬áthe opposite of what I would like in a new handheld. Additionally, the reduction in size has also eliminated some of the functionality. I predict that on April 5th, we will hear a collective cry of grief from GBA games everywhere.

Sincerely,

Dustin

Bro Break. Moon Shock.

So, in the event of class, and work, and life, Broquest is on hold. Hopefully during spring break, work will resume to completion.

However, until then, I must recommend a new DS game I am enjoying. Moon. It’s good. Slightly repetitive at times, but perfect for a handheld FPS. Also, I must admit that I’m playing the 1994 classic, System Shock, concurrently with Moon. The art style of Moon reminded me of System Shock, so I gave it a download and have been playing it while slow at work. Because of this, I find myself trying to do many of the things from System Shock while playing Moon and am jolted back to the realization of the games simplicity. Oh well, I don’t think Moon developer, Renegade Kid, set out to dupe System Shock, so it’s not really fair to make the comparison. However, the further I get in System Shock, the more I yearn for a DS port.

Man, what a great game. Moon is good, System Shock is great.
