The Wii port of Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney arrives in Europe today, after being panned by US media for being a lazy port. We don't think "lazy port" is a strong enough term for what is essentially a GBA game running in emulation. But, because it's Phoenix Wright running in emulation, and its story...

Nintendo continues to release bite-size portions of old DS games as DSiWare games, which may rankle some, but we think its latest broken-up DS game makes a lot of sense. The company plans to release Electroplankton in Japan as ten individual 200-point downloads, each consisting of one of the "plankt...

Thanks to powerful, feature-rich music creation software like Korg DS-10 and Jam Sessions and weird musical toys like Electroplankton and Axe, the DS has become a multifaceted instrument for electronic music. If you've been using your DS for music, we'd love to hear about it! And, of course, hear i...

"Wha? Who is this impostor in my beloved column," you ask? Well, I kindly asked Matt if I could step in and guest write the column this week. Luckily, Matt is a fan of not working and allowed me to do so. I imagine he's sitting on a beach right now, complaining about the salt in his drink. So, Ele...

Whether it's New Super Mario Bros. or The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass, or even Elite Beat Agents, they've provided us with hours of entertainment. Given th...

DS game packaging is some of the best yet in Nintendo's history, largely because it abandons the flimsy, easily torn cardboard boxes of the past, but also because the games look very pretty lined up together. With this in mind, how do you display your games? Do you have them proudly sitting on a sh...

No BAFTA game awards this fall? How can this be? The last two years, Nintendo has picked up a few awards and a little bit of sweet, sweet recognition, and we're not sure we want to face a 2008 without the same treatment. The British awards, which lauded Wii Sports in 2007 and Electroplankton and Bra...

Using a DS (with a copy of Electroplankton), along with a pair of iPhones, the above trio manage to create some pretty melodious tunes. It's not really the kind of music we would rock out to on our own time, but we must admit that this video is still really impressive. Also, it reminds us of the e...

Using Nintendo products as musical tools has become a recent trend, but we're certainly not complaining. Our only gripe about this new Electroplankton-esque Wiimote application is that we can't download it for ourselves. Of course, the mission statement behind the project known as "wiiwiiwiiwi...

And she might! Thanks to the alluring and radical power of the DS.

How about Animal Crossing...

We know Electroplankton sort of covered the musical DS toy thing, but we are so impressed with every aspect of Jam Sessions. It sounds great, it looks fun, the interface, while a little homebrew-looking, is just ... pleasant. Look at that floral background! We now know a little more about Jam Sessi...

Chris Hecker didn't pull any punches at GDC's "Game Publisher's Rant" session. The Maxis developer began his "Fear of a Wii Planet" diatribe by declaring, "The Wii is a piece of sh*t." He went on to describe the console as being vastly underpowered, citing low graphical standards and an inability to...

Tetris DS (DS) Nintendo is guilty of shoveling franchises at its fans; did we need another Tetris? Does the NEStalgia design make the game more fun? Probably not. (And I think the pixelated graphics on the top screen detract from the game; I'd rather have the classic Russian graphics and music.) Bu...
