The week's new releases failed to crack the top ten, however, as the late...

DJ Max Portable 3 I blame myself for not pimping out PM Studio's excellent DJ Max Portable 3 more this year. The Korean music game is quite possibly the only music game you'll ever need on a handheld, thanks to its seemingly endless soundtrack, varied modes, rewarding progression, beautiful graphic...

There are ten lessons included on the retail version of Art Academy. At a Nintendo event, I was able to go through one of them on a DSi XL.

Hidden among a bunch of fairly low-profile releases (although we love Shadow Dancer, and Stop Stress developer Abylight is super nice) is something really cool: a new tilt-controlled DSiWare game.

The WiiWare demo program arrives in Japan today, offering many of the same demos found in North America. Bit.Trip Beat and NyxQuest are out, and Pokemon Mystery Dungeon is in.
