Everybody was touchscreen fighting

The DS's touchscreen technology has allowed us to indulge in some truly unique activities, from painting tanks to DJing to slapping women. Seriously, who would have guessed this kind of thing was the future in 2003? Not wishing to be left out, Capcom's Rosario + Vampire (which, Capcom has confirmed,...
