DS Daily: Spreading the word

Do people ever ask you why you're a DS fan? We certainly get it all the time, especially when playing handheld games in public, and inevitably, when the subject comes up, people ask about the best games. In those situations, you have a couple of choices: you can tell them about the absolute best games, or you can evaluate what you know about the person, and guess at the best games for them. We tend to do the latter, and there are a few games we recommend over and over. Professor Layton and the Curious Village is the newest of the lot, but we also often recommend Clubhouse Games, the DS Castlevania titles (of course), Phantom Hourglass, since so many people are familiar with the franchise, and games like Advance Wars for longtime gamers. For those who aren't gamers at all, we talk about things like Brain Age, but also titles like My French Coach and Let's Yoga. When you're in these situations, how do you describe the system's appeal, and what do you recommend?

DS Daily: The discovery of portability

So we were hanging out on the couch playing some Portrait of Ruin online-- you know, the usual situation. Then the phone rang, and without thinking, we got up from the couch, DS still in hand. Looking down at the system, we discovered that it still worked. Who knew? The DS, as it turns out, is a portable system, which means that it can be used anywhere.

We must test the abilities of this system to be played outside of the house! For you, dear readers, and, for SCIENCE! But we need to gather some data before we begin our grand experiment. Specifically, we would like to know what games to take with us. Try to imagine a situation where you are traveling while also playing video games. What kind of game would be best suited for this outrageous eventuality?
