Tetris DS!

Well, this seems great, but on the other hand, it's not. I have a few different thoughts on Tetris DS.

For starters, it had better not have the slowdown issues of Tetris Worlds on the GBA. There's NO excuse for a game to have slowdown when the original version in inferior hardware ran perfectly smooth, spinach green graphics or not.

Secondly, why must this use the touch screen? I see no reason for that. Sure, it's nice that the touch screen is there, but some games just don't need it. There had better be an option to not even use the touch screen.

But, the upside is that you will be able to play it on the Nintendo Wi-Fi Network. Playing Tetris against real people is much better than just playing with yourself (that's right, I said it).

And finally, will it be worth $35 for a new Tetris game? Maybe it'll only be $20. Couldn't we be so lucky. I have no problem with paying full price for a newer version of an old game, but come on now. This is Tetris. Not much has changed with Tetris over the years, and that's the way it should be. Sure, give it to us on a new platform, but don't charge full price for it.

I'm eager to download The New Tetris on the Revolution. I never could get all the wonders on my N64.
