    Just wondering how you guys hold your NDS Lite when using the stylus. I got weak wrists, so I always have trouble playing games for a long time when the stylus is required.

    Anyways, I'll start by sharing how I hold the NDS Lite. I put the NDS Lite in the my left hand and I use my pinky finger on the bottom of the NDS Lite to support it. I tried without the pinky finger before, but I get the feeling the NDS Lite will slip out of my hands at some point [​IMG].

    So, how do you guys hold your NDS Lite?

    left hand on the dpad, right hand with pinky underneath and the rest of that hand on top holding the stylus

    kinda weird at first, but you quickly adapt
    I remember when I first got my DS, I had to support it on my thigh to play the first hunt demo [​IMG]

    I lay it on a table, use my nose for buttons and my tongue for the d-pad.

    it's not laziness. it's convenience.

    i'm usually multitasking when playing the NDS at the desk.

    My two superconductors hold my DSL in the air, and I modded it so it reads my eye movement instead of stlus. It's useful when you play on bed. If you want one call NASA and find me.

    uncomfortable? it just sits on the table while you poke at your NDS w/ the stylus. it's great when working at your desk. it's definitely a must have if youre playing games like HOtel Dusk and Phoenix Wright.

    Ever hear of the "Canada arm" on the space shuttle/station? Who do you think made that? [​IMG] [​IMG] Being in NASA generally means you are very smart or have a specialist talent... making it quite easy to get a green card, especially if NASA requests you specifically. It does not necessarily mean you are from the USA. [​IMG] Even the Canada Goose goes and spends it's winters down around the shuttle launch site, wintering on NASA land.

    For stylus use only(pheonix wright, brain age) i either put on the table or i hold theDS by putting the thumb on the middle of where the GBA slot is and my 3 middle fingers where the DS slot is.

    Im still having trouble holding for a game like metroid prime corruption.

    You mean hunters, right?

    Anyway, I hold the top screen between the thumb and the index finger of my left hand, and the bottom screen between my palm and the other fingers.

    The DS slips out of my hand, it feels extremely unnatural when playing in stylus game. I have to keep adjusting it or the DS will become unplayable. I have only won one match of Hunters online, and I always get first place in Nexuiz and UT2004, so yup. I don't know why this happens, I have pretty big fingers.

    I hold the stylus in my right hand and the DS lite in the left on the bottom left corner with about 3 fingers. So basically it can fall off easily but it's never happened.
