OMG. Now the day is getting expensive.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

I am so suspicious about ports of DS games... I really want this to be good but I can't stand upscaling.
