Shawn says: "I just finished a paint job on an Original DS as a gift for my girlfriend. It was part of a multi staged attack plan to get her into gaming. She never gamed before she met me and thought all games were first person shooters... After playing Nintendogs, New York Times Crossword Puzzle, Cooking Mama, and My Word Coach on a shinny Purple DS she is now Wii bowling with the best of them and playing Zelda on occasion." Link
