Ah, the 3DS. Remember when Nintendo refused to admit it was going to replace the GBA? Yeah, nice try guys. I made so much fun of this weird device when it was first announced. But of course Ninty got the last laugh because this thing ended up printing money for them. I definitely contributed to that. A lot.

So I recently beat Phantom Hourglass and am near the end of Spirit Tracks. The interface was jarring at first, but by ST I felt totally at home. It's interesting that Nintendo gave us a quality touch screen game in PH (and followed it up with ST) before mobile apps took over and soured that method of control forever.
