16-in-1 DS case is accountingly efficient

The case : cartridge size ratio for DS games is like 300 : 1. You could fit a huge pile of the tiny games inside a single case, but then there's a grand total of one secure slot. A bit of overkill for the cases, then, but the awesome boxart on most games needs to be acknowledged -- so no smaller, ...

DS Daily: A longtime companion calls it quits

This weekend, we had to do something that made us feel horrible, but in the end, was for the best. Like that scene in Old Yeller, we had to put down one of our DS carts (Mario Kart DS, oddly enough). You see, all of the inserting and ejecting of the cartridge with our DS caused something to get loos...

Working NES squeezed into ... an NES cartridge

All right, we'll admit that headline is a little inaccurate. The heavily modified Super Mario Bros. cart shown above actually plays Japanese Famicom carts (like the not-at-all-bootleg Super Bros. 5), not the slightly larger American NES carts. Semantics aside, we're sure you'll share our sense of a...

NES cart becomes NES system

If you don't think this is awesome, you should have the nearest human being check you for a pulse. French modder Kotomi, who you might recall made some pretty awesome DS and Wii-based stuff, has put his skills to the test and managed to fit the guts of a NES into a Super Mario Bros. cartridge. Pre...

Today's most oddly musical video: HarmoNESica

It should be a no-brainer. You blow into a harmonica. You blow into an NES cartridge. Putting the two things together should result in more efficient blowing. And indeed it does. All you have ti do is watch the video performance on the new instrument to see how much it blows. The creator of this mon...

Cartridge clock pulls us back in time

Have any old NES carts lying around that you're not using? If you can possibly spare to sacrifice one to a greater (or lesser, depending on your opinion) cause, this might be a fun project: the NES cart clock. Of course, if you're not up to a little DIY project, you can pick this one up at Etsy, c...

DS Daily: Underappreciated feature #1,782,365

You know, the DS Daily is a great place to spur discussion and get your DS-obsessed day off on the right foot. But, we feel the need to be a bit selfish today. Instead of writing a love letter to our handheld and postmarking the envelope to our heart, we figured we'd call out one of its many smal...

Get diabetic children interested in their health through video games

According to Australian news network Channel 10 News, a new diabetes management device known as Glucoboy has hit the market. The device was designed by Minnesota native Paul Wessel, who has a son diagnosed with the disease. He said he came up with the concept after his son forgot his Game Boy on a f...

Alex Mauer's Vegavox album: Now available on NES

Go ahead and toss all your CD's in the garbage, along with your SACD's, audio DVD's, cassettes, LP's, EP's, 45's, 8-tracks, DAT's, Minidiscs, wax cylinders, and player piano rolls. Crush the pile down a little and throw your fancy MP3 player on top. All of that stuff just became embarrassingly obsol...

Wii Warm Up: Do you miss cartridges?

Sure, discs are the complete end-all, be-all in a lot of ways. Games have gotten bigger since graduating from cartridges, and that's all well and fine. But there's just one thing we miss: the freedom to be completely unconcerned about how we treated our games. Don't worry -- most of the time, we're ...
