Excerpt: Think back to the last time you held a puppy. Now, try and recall your emotions during that moment. If you are having trouble remembering, let me jog your memory for you. You were happy. A huge grin split your face from ear to ear. You might have even giggled like schoolgirl. If the puppy peed in your lap, your smile may have wavered for a few seconds, but it came back. How do I know this? — Because puppies have that effect on people. All people.
Excerpt: The number of titles released on the Nintendo DS is unfortunately small, especially when you take into consideration that out of the few, even fewer use the DS's functions to their full ability.
