I don't see you having a whining fest about getting a console for a game you like; those cost more.

Have you used MS paint at all??? Surely that would show you how clunky a mouse is when precision is needed.

You think you have low income? I DON'T GET MONEY UNLESS IT'S CHRISTMAS!!!! Any other time, and I'm "SOL". I get $200 annually, so don't bitch about having a low income. I spent my whole christmas budget on a DS and 2 games, which unfortunately didn't include DoS.
