Well, I broke down and did it. I traded in my GameCube and all games, and then some older original XBox games I still had (that I don't play). Like usual, I have absolutely ZERO self-control when game shopping. I went in there meaning to buy a DS Lite
and _three_ games. I ended up walking away with _eight_, though.
Here's what I ended up buying:
Black DS Lite
DS Lite Games:
- Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time
- New Super Mario Bros.
- Metroid Prime: Hunters
- Mariokart DS
- Brain Age
GBA Games (for more of my RPG fix):
- Golden Sun
- Golden Sun: The Lost Age
- Final Fantasy Tactics Advance
I forked out $150 for all of that (the DS lite alone was $130). Pretty cheap. Between the $130 in-store credit from my trade-ins, and the fact that I got 10% off of used games, _and_ they were running a "buy 2, get 1 free" special on their used games. They
didn't have Advance Wars in stock though .
Not bad . Now I'll have something to keep me company on my trip to Amsterdam and Singapore .
Thanks for the advice and recommendations everyone!
