I just joined the GBA scene, and boy was this exactly what I was looking for. Being sick to death on 3d games I looked at the gba scene and behold everything is good old handdrawn 2d games.Best of all it has great RPG'S and many games have than "manga cut scene/talk scene" effect. I could have shelfed an extra buck and easly have gotten a PSP but no way would I pass on a console tat has 3 2d side scrolling castelvania's. Aside form all that GBA SP has the optimum portable size,is ligtweight,backlit and flash cards make it play mp3's,emulates other consoles,plays movies hell it even has old SIERRA games on it. and from what I have noticed the game well for GBA has not dried yet. NOW if only Turbo xs would make a car tuner for mustangs then I would die happily.
