Studies show that American consumers are most receptive to downloadable content at the beginning of the week. It's true! Why do you think Nintendo dumps its releases out on Mondays? It's not rocket science, people. But, we digress. Hop past the break to check out what's new this week for download o...

If you've been keeping up with what's headed to WiiWare and DSiWare, then this week's downloads will likely be of no surprise to you.

Thirteen DSiWare titles will be released to Japan's DSi Shop on December 24, so we thought we'd construct a one-stop post where you can gawk at games most of us can't have. Past the jump, you'll find screens for all launch titles, as well as the price and size of each. How would you spend the free 1...

Remember checkers? How about chess? And blackjack? What about dominoes? And Shogi and Ludo and Hasami Shogi and Koi-Koi and -- ahem. Don't recognize those last few names? No worries! I didn't know them either. There's still time to learn, however, and this is where Nintendo's Clubhouse Games comes...

We've been hearing word recently of restocks of Clubhouse Games and Hotel Dusk: Room 215, but as CAG forumite worrybomb reveals, the new cartridges are more than a simple reprint.

Didja hear? Doctor Who is back from the future to save the DS in Europe! Hurray!Haha. Not really.

Let's kick off this fine Tuesday with a hypothetical scenario or two. If someone asked you for DS game recommendations, which two would you pick? Wait, let's make it more difficult. Which two would you recommend for: a gamer under the age of twelve? someone new to the DS who was a longtime...

It felt good to be back after our break over the holiday, as we threw down in some Metroid Prime Hunters and enjoyed the company of our good friends. You could be one of those good friends, you know. All you have to do is show up at next week's Game Night and you're in our very exclusive club. It's...
