Because I Really Needed to Do My Laundry...

I have made a decision re: the DS Lite, people. After I found this article at gamespot.com, I knew what I had to do.
The bundle hits stores October 24 with a $149.99 price tag, and includes either a pearl pink or teal-colored system, and a "Best Friends" version of Nintendogs that lets gamers start the title with the six most popular breeds from the three existing Nintendogs games: Labrador retriever, golden retriever, German shepherd, beagle, Yorkshire terrier, and miniature dachshund. As with the other versions of the game, all 18 breeds are unlockable in the "Best Friends" edition. Other bonuses in the package include a Nintendogs-branded, bone-shaped screen cleaner and a paw-print-riddled Nintendogs skin for the system.
In other news, Rem Koolhaas will be giving a lecture at Harvard's GSD on...uh, shit. I probably shouldn't say when. The only time I managed to get in to a lecture at Harvard (Zaha Hadid right after she won the Pritzker Prize), we went pretty early, and were still in satellite room with the projector screens. It's not so bad, really, but if I'm going to have a seat, at least it can be in the same room as the famous architect? Eh. Maybe not. Whatever -- we'll see. For those of you who aren't familiar with Rem or his work, I gave this analogy to Laura earlier today:
This is like...if...Justin Timberlake was going to give a lecture on...being sexy.
So I'll let you know how it goes. I had big plans to see a movie tonight...or at least do my laundry. It looks like I'll be doing neither, since I'm still at work. What a shame.

Oh man. I've been yearning for a DS lite, too, but I think I might hold out for the Wii?

Every time someone mentions the Wii I pee a little.


Did you know America is getting it before Japan? I need to go back!!!!!

I want a DS Lite too though. Have you seen the FF3 remake? Mentos for the eyes.

I have not seen the FF3 remake, but I read a review and it's supposed to be pretty awesome.

I guess I'm going to have to just jump into this gaming thing.

No toes in the water first for me, thanks.
