Professor: suggesting Brain Age helps is 'charlatanism'

Brain Age games don't necessarily make you smarter, and it is "charlatanism" to make such a claim. Those are the conclusions drawn by one Alain Lieury, professor of cognitive psychology at the University of Rennes. The professor's findings were picked up by The Times, which loves itself a good story...

Practice crashing planes in latest downloadable demos

DS demo updates on the Nintendo Channel often get a disappointed reaction from us, but this week's batch does contain at least one interesting addition: Sonic Powered's Air Traffic Chaos, as localized (complete with generic and terrible boxart) by Majesco. At the very least, we're hopeful that the...

Nintendo Channel video updates plus one mom's Brain Age 2 experience

This week's video updates had a pretty interesting inclusion. The above video follows a mom and how much she loves that DS game, Brain Age 2. Along with this video, there are a bunch of other things you might want to watch. Head past the break for the full list....

Carnival Games makes its return to the DS Download Service

For people longing to play new demos via the Nintendo Channel, the frustration continues. All we saw on the channel today was the return of two demos that we never really missed in the first place (we're looking at you, Carnival Games and Crosswords DS Wordsearch). Nintendo also extended the...

DS Download Service updates with old demos

Another unimpressive week of Nintendo Channel demos

With Trauma Center 2 and Contra 4 on the Nintendo Channel's demos list, you may wonder why exactly we're unimpressed. Perhaps it's because there's nothing new offered this week, unless you count the reappearance of certain demos on the list as "new." We don't. To see why we're thoroughly uninspired,...

Searching for more than words in Nintendo's latest demo offerings

This week was a bit of a let down in terms of demos -- then again, it's hard to follow up the excitement of Arkanoid. It seems like Nintendo didn't even try, though. While we were interested in the demo the first time around, Cake Mania 2 already had its heyday. Then, there's Rayman Raving Rabbids...

Another Week in Japan: Hardware and software numbers 5/5-5/11

There's no new DS software in the top of the charts to report this week, but that doesn't mean Nintendo's little handheld didn't completely clean house. In fact, nineteen of the top thirty were DS games, showing how gluttonous the dual-screened portable can get when it comes to sales. Some old...

Professor Layton and the New, Low Price

Here's a puzzle for you, and we think you'll find it to be an absolute humdinger: if you haven't already purchased Professor Layton and the Curious Village, then why not? There are several different answers to this brainteaser, but you'll have to go past the break to find them. Anyway, Level 5's...

Friday Video: Senior version

Did you know the Crimson & Black DS Lite is the "senior version?" Yeah, it's news to us (especially those of us who own it), but according to Gary Krakow, anything with a leatherette case and math is clearly not for kids. Usually, we limit the Friday video spotlight to something we can embed...
