Death Jr. and the preorder stylus of doom

Of all the preorder stylus bonuses we've seen, Death Jr. and the Science Fair of Doom's is easily the best. Konami has been encouraging gamers to reserve its 3D platformer with promises of a miniaturized scythe that doubles as a stylus. The preorder perk also comes with a plastic holder that clips the oversized pen to you DS Lite.

Though it makes for a great novelty item to enjoy with your game, the scythe also serves as a grim reminder that death is always close. Try as we might to avoid it, our end is always waiting, ready to steal our life's work -- or waste in some cases -- like a thief in the night. It doesn't seem like much of a bonus when you think about it like that, does it?

Death Jr. and the Science Fair of Doom won't appear on store shelves until May 22nd, but some online shops are already sending the preorder styli out. Head past the post break for CAG forumer Asgardian's photos of the Death Jr. stylus he received early.

Death, Jr. was the reason I bought a PSP. Then I played Death, Jr. I traded my PSP for a new DS Lite. Let's hope the DS entry of DJ fairs better. Still gonna keep the DS, regardless. You kiddin' me?

Death Jr. 2: Root of Evil on the PSP is a lot of fun and it's the first PSP game with HDR lighting. I can't fathom how much they'll have to degrade Death Jr. for the DS.
