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.
