Joystiq impressions: Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga (DS)

LucasArts recently showed off the in-development DS version of Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga. The company tried to remain positive -- or at the very least, civil -- about the previous DS bomb, Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy. But this showing was clearly to prove to journalists that the ...

Joystiq hands-on: EA Playground (DS)

EA Playground for the DS follows the general theme of the Wii game. Players compete in nine games to become the king of the schoolyard. While up to four players can battle on a local network, every competitor is forced to buy a copy of the game. I recently sampled all of the activities; a few stood ...

Today's newest input device video: Slide Adventure

The nearly released (in Japan) DS game, Slide Adventure: Mag Kid must be seen in video to be appreciated. The DS mounts inside a baby-walker-style cradle and rolls around on a table, dictating in-game action. It basically turns the DS into a mouse. It's hard to tell if the game will be fun, but as a...

Pokemon transforms DS into 'cell phone' for kids

Not that Pokémon -- only the second best-selling game franchise evar -- needs any marketing spin to excite sales of its predestined two-headed spawn Diamond & Pearl, but Nintendo does seems eager to herald the game's impending arrival as a sort of "My First Celly" for DS toting youngsters...

1: open the box ... 2: put your games in that box ... 3: now just carry the box ... and that's the way you do it!

The idea behind Shogakukan's Hyper Carrying Case (¥480; $4) is simple: it's made to look like a standard retail box, but when you pop it open, you discover a storage case for three four DS games and one GBA game (we suppose you could squeeze a few instruction booklets in there too). Despite con...

The game launches in Japan next week (as Kaitou Wario the Seven) and sees Wario returning to his platform roots with some added DS gimmickry. Players will draw sym...

Alternate carrying cases for PSP & DS carts

Our post exhorting Nintendo to make their temporary switch to paper permanent generated a fair number of comments on both sides of the issue. Some gamers are very, very attached to their plastic DS cases, so much so that they used impolite language encouraging me to -- how do you say it? Ah, yes! ...

Hey Nintendo, make the switch to paper boxes permanent!

Nintendo's apologizing to European customers because they've had to temporarily switch to cardboard game boxes as a result of shortages afflicting that territory, according to Gamasutra's David Jenkins. Nintendo, ever sensitive to gamer needs (and we can't fault them there), is tossing a coupon into...
