ComfortStylus is a bender. No, British readers, I don't mean that ComfortStylus is gay, I am saying it is flexible at mercy. Designed to be used with PDAs or any other touchscreen appliance, the ComfortStylus gets brilliant, when used for gaming purposes, either with the Nintendo DS or with the recent DS Lite. Especially since the latter is no longer including that little thumbthing on the top of the lanyard strap. The whole point of having a flexible Stylus is that you can attach it around your thumb or another finger. After spending a couple of minutes customizing the perfect position (so that you can press all buttons as well as the touchscreen with optimal ease), it truly enhances gameplay, especially in situations during which seconds matter or in a game like Metroid Prime Hunters. No more stylus grabbing at the last minute, no more stylus dropping in the middle of a crucial battle. Changing hands (literally) for US$ 7.95 only, the ComfortStylus is a bargain. Lik Sang recommends it to all serious NDS gamers out there.
Please note that the ComfortStylus is made out of very resistant material, so that it will last for an extremely long time if you are reasonably cautious when playing around with it. Still, naturally, if you really try your best efforts to break it, chances are you will eventually succeed. It required the IGN Gear crew quite a bit of energy to make that happen though: check out the IGN review of the ComfortStylus.
While about replacement styluses for Nintendo DS, third-party manufacturers are now offering their traditional 2-Stylus Packs in a wide range of colors. There are enough variations to match with any Nintendo DS flavor that has been released to date. All 2-Packs retail for US$ 3.95, bulk discounts are available for quantity orders. All of these sticks are designed for the original standard model of the Nintendo DS and fit with the size of the stylusholder in this model only. They do not fit with the new stylusholder in the Nintendo DS Lite, but we have received word from the maker that DS Lite models were in the works and should be available in the next couple of weeks.
