What would be your opinion of playing Advance Wars holding the DS system vertically, like a book, as you do in Brain Training and Mario E Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story?

The idea struck me - much of Advance Wars can work in this format (such as the two-way dialogue as seen in Days of Ruin/Dark Conflict, and the menus wont need much fine-tuneing to submit to that format). The only real awkward thing about using this system would probably be in the battlefield, but it wouldn't be too bad, in my opinion (imagine if battle animations could take place, each army taking up a whole screen! Amazing, huh?! Just an after-thought ;) ).

I was just wondering how the rest of the AW comunity would react to such a format if it ever came out.

Please note that I've just come to GameFAQs, that I'm a newbie with this site, and if I have posted this in the wrong board, then could somebody direct me to a better one to post to?

I've just realised that this would totally wreck the good-old button system...
But still... If you could just use the touchscreen, would you think it's a forward or backward step?

Yeah, I think the fact that you can't use the buttons to control would be a big turnoff.

You could program it to make it work, but using the system holding the DS in that position would just be a pain [literally], and I kinda figured it was a bad idea as I thought it over.
