Recently I’ve been taking a break from gaming for a few reasons. I’m making a concerted effort to spend less money on games I won’t play enough to justify, and just games in general.
However, there are plenty of games that I am interested in that are coming out often so it’s not like I’ll have nothing to play, far from it in fact. I just want to spend more time on other interests and only spend money on the games I know I’ll love as opposed to taking risks on games I’m not sure about, and buying based on purely hype.
I also want to mention that in the end I did order a DSi XL. It’s been a long time since I bought my DS lite and I almost can’t look at it anymore because of how old school it feels. That, and the nice large screens on the XL make it hard to resist.
