A few days ago, I picked up New Super Mario Bros. and Super Princess Peach for my Nintendo DS. I haven’t touched either of them yet because I’m still only 5 hours into Mario & Luigi: Partners in Time (which is great fun, by the way), but I can’t wait to start playing. They look fantastic. New Super Mario Bros. (what a poor title) seems to really allow the DS’s processor to shine. Even though it doesn’t compare to the graphics on the PSP (in general, the DS is slightly better than the N64 and the PSP is slightly worse than the PS2), it’s still quite stunning. I have both systems, and while the PSP’s screen is gorgeous, I still reach for the DS more often.

Expect a brief review of the games one of these days. I spend maybe an hour each week playing, though, so don’t hold your breath.
