The DS Life: Sleepy underground

Eric Caoili

We've featured "subway gamers" in the past, and we've also posted images of sleepy gamers, but this week, through the magic of candid photography, we have a scene that captures both of those elements together. It doesn't sound that amazing, right? Well, join us past the post break to see why we thought this photo is so special!

Poor guy. After a long day at work, all he wants to do is play some Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia on his way home, but some lady sitting next to him (perhaps his wife?) nodded off and rested her head on his leg. He's much too nice or too busy to push her off.

Of course, having spent a tiring nine hours at his job, he would love to take a relax and take a nap himself, but this damn giant crab boss in the lighthouse refuses to die, no matter how many times he smashes its shell with an axe. Look at his angry expression! That has to be it!

Did anyone else think of Mr. Crabs when they saw Brachyura? These things don't die easy!

The DS Life is a weekly feature in which we scour the known world for narrative images of Nintendo's handheld and handheld gamers. If you have a photo and a story to match it with, send both to thedslife at dsfanboy dot com.
