Nintendo DS

I just received my brand new Nintendo DS - for free! I used the points accumulated on my credit card to get it. It came with a bunch of nice accessories including a hard and soft case, and two games. I'm not too excited about Madden NFL 06, but Ninja Gaiden: Dragon's Sword looks intriguing!

So why am I writing about video games on a blog about computer science? I've definitely talked about games before in posts like this one, this, or even this. I just know that I won't be able to play my new DS without thinking about the theory behind the games! Besides, it looks like I should be able to TA a first year game design class this fall, so I suppose I should be more in the know.

I expect I will report back (eventually) about how I like the games on the DS.

Are you going to get a breakout cartridge? I have dstt and it works great. There's some seriously killer homebrew apps out there ;)

I was hoping you'd be able to tell me what to get. Send details via email (or just links?) please :) Also, do you use a screen protector or not bother? Mine came with two sets, and my first attempt didn't go that well.
