nintend-ds-ing it up

I am at a friend’s house right now, in the basement being antisocial while everyone else is upstairs watching Sin City. I’ve seen it, and don’t really need to see it again.

Today I bought a Nintendo DS just to play this new puzzle game called Meteos. It truly is awesome, and I agree wholeheartedly with the guy who told me it was just as good a game as Lumines. (Of course, I have only played it a scant few hours at this point, but that is my impression thus far.) Anyway, it is by far the best of today’s game purchases.

As far as I can tell from watching over Laura’s shoulder, the new Kirby game also kicks ass. (We now have all the Kirby games again. *sigh of relief*) I also bought Polarium, which seems pretty cool, but nowhere near as intricate as Meteos, and Zoo Keeper–another Bejewled clone. I still have yet to pick up Mr. Driller, and then I should have all the puzzle games I want for the system right now. I did look at Puyo Pop for a bit in the store, but I don’t really need another version of that shitty game. Pac-Pics also does look interesting, but reviews seem mixed. I want to play it before I decide.

I can’t figure out whether I really like controlling stuff with the stylus or not. Metios would probably not be quite as fast paced without it, but it can be frustrating to get the hang of “selecting” the right piece to move. There is so much to do in Metios, I can’t wait to get home and play it again!
