Duel Love may seem controversial, but it's just another DS training game. There are training games on the DS that cover all sorts of subjects, from driving to cooking. Why not one about caring for high-school boys who take part in a secret fight club? And, uh, nipple rubbing?Think about it th...

"If you bundle a game with a special brush stylus, they will come," the heavens whispered to Nintendo. While we expected Beautiful Letter Training (also known as Bimoji or Calligraphy Training) to do well, we didn't expect it to sell 66,000 copies in its first week. This first-party effort by Nint...

Though there are only three DS titles scheduled for release, each one has something going for it. How often...

Our eyes passed over Duel Love's cover design and dismissed the art as typical shoujo fare at first, but a second glance revealed a disturbing detail -- the shirtless figure in the foreground, Yuuki Jin, has no nipples. Sorry, Bandai Namco, but no nips, no sale.If you're planning on picking this on...

More often than not, we keep the front page current with news on games we're interested in. It's a selfish policy, yes, but fitting with our character. Unfortunately, in our pursuit to cover all things Super Dodgeball and Bangai-O, we often miss the titles you're anticipating.With that in mind, we'...
