Then maybe you could pad it using a small piece of foam rubber or neoprene and some 2way tape. Even if it doesn't work you can just peel it off since it's just tape. <img src=smilies/magbiggrin.gif>

The GBA games fit in the slot. What's up with that? I want my GBA games to stick out a little <img src=smilies/retard.gif>

I dunno, I loved my despite its ugliness. Played just great to me, but the Lite is just so goddamn sexy.

Oh...for some reason I read that as the exact opposite of what you meant. @_@

Oh, it's a good system even if the Lite is better, but in MPH at least I found that the original DS's casing had a bit of an edge to it. Maybe it's because I tend to hold the thing in an iron grip while playing that game that I noticed this...it just seems like the Lite is more comfortable to hold for an extended time.

I like the touchscreen controls in StarFox. It took me maybe 10 minutes to get used to them, but after that I thought they were pretty nice.

For some reason my hands kept falling asleep when I played it, I don't know if it was a weight issue or what, but that's not the problem I had with MPH on it, it was a combination of the bulkiness of the DS, the shorter stylus, and the fact that I'm left handed (Meaning using the buttons for movement instead of the D-pad). The game is just easier to play on the Lite for me, my hands still cramp up way too fast though.

They should have just made it more round at the sides.

I can say I pretty much had the same impression after a while. ;> That and the similarity between each of the levels made it kind of a slow game, as enjoyable as the multiplayer is.

On the other end of the scale, I enjoy the third-person shooters on the PSP quite a bit...but I don't think I've seen anyone around here with one besides myself and the guy who recommended it to me. :/
