With three DS types in existence -- we're including the Phat here, too; can't forget about the original just because these upstarts are hanging around -- you have the potential to build one weird system. If, that is, you combined aspects of all three. If you could, which features would you put into ...

With the Nintendo DSi releasing to the public in Japan (and to some of us who wanted it too much to wait), we imagine many folk might still hold on to their DS Lite or Phat for homebrew or any other reason. It's not that there won't be DSi homebrew in the future, just, for now, the community isn'...

Yesterday was the four-year anniversary of the US launch of the DS. What was your opinion of the DS back in 2004? None of us knew back then what it would become today; we expected GBA-level popularity at best. Were you totally lined up for a system on the first day? Did you wait until Christmas? Unt...

In this day and age, we assume that any and every DS fanboy and fangirl has upgraded to a Lite, what with them being so easy on the wallet and chock full of great features. But, we know how much some of you out there like to hold on to things. So, any of you out there still have your Phat? Do you p...

Now this is a real offhand! The stats aren't so great, but wait until the next expansion -- surely the most disgusting item in the game will get a nice upgrade, right? Name: Digested Hand of Power Type: Epic Offhand Hand (Ha! Wowhead, Thottbot, Armory) Damage/Speed: N/A Abilities: +10 Stamina,...

It's been awhile since we asked you, and what with our community growing all the time, we figured it was time we discussed what model DS Lite you've gone with. Were you there for the first handhelds to release locally, or could you not simply wait and just had to import one like, say, the Enamel N...

Nintendo is pumping out new DS colors with a vengeance, and many DS owners who've been clinging to their original models are finally breaking down and upgrading to a Lite. Still others already had a Lite, but found themselves lulled into spending even more money on a spiffy new shade. We just can'...

Boy, is it hot in here, or is it just my SHIELD THAT BREATHES FIRE!? Name: Dragonheart Flameshield (Wowhead, Thottbot, Wowarsenal) Type: Epic Shield Armor: 4872 (122 Block) Abilities: +19 Stamina, +21 Intellect, which pushes this shield a little bit more than usual towards PvP. Increases dam...

Sure, this is just a used DS Phat with a sticker on it, in a chipped lockbox, but it's the coolest used DS in a box we've ever seen. That's because this particular arrangement is a retail download station, of the sort set up in local stores (and at Safeco Field). It's intended to broadcast demos t...

Like the ol' Orb of Deception, here's another fun toy -- that's brand new in patch 2.4. Name: Orb of the Sin'dorei (Wowhead, Thottbot, WowDB) Type: Rare Item Damage/Speed: N/A Abilities: On use, transforms the user into a Blood Elf. Lasts for five minutes with a 30 minute cooldown between uses...

Well you knew it was coming. That PSP hack we told you about a few weeks ago has hit the interblogs, and we predict all hell will be breaking loose any moment. Un-retired homebrew mastermind Dark_AleX has come up with a little number called Timemachine, which is capable of spinning your PSP back t...

Seeking to convert his girlfriend, Rachel, into a handheld gamer, DS Fanboy reader Shawn wrapped this custom-painted Nintendo DS and put it under their Christmas tree along with copies of Nintendogs, Cooking Mama, New York Times Crosswords, and My Word Coach. In order to achieve that smooth shine...

As part of a bento challenge, Livejournal, uh, "bentochallenge" community member mushmo made this awesome rice representation of a pink DS. Technically, it's a Phat, but we couldn't resist the pun in the title. The DS onigiri folds up to fit in its bento box, and is joined by shrimp, broccoli, car...

When it comes to the DS, you've got options. You can go traditional, you can move up to a Lite, and you can choose from a variety of colors. You can even import if your region doesn't feature the shade you prefer. But would you buy another regular DS or bundle? Would it depend on price? What about t...

We're pretty obsessive about our DS care, as you would imagine. We're sure all of you are as well to some extent. But, sometimes, you forget to put it in its case, or it falls, or you lend it to someone else (nooooo!) In some cases, life just adds normal wear to your device. How is your DS holding...

As requested, we're going "husky" on Phat Loot today, with a cool two-handed, midlevel sword that anyone can get. Plus, if you ask me, this sword has one of the best names ever. Puns FTW! Name: X'caliboar Type: Rare Two-hand Sword Damage/Speed: 98-148 / 3.30 (37.3 DPS) Abilities: +20 Strength,...

Subscribers to GameStop's weekly newsletter might have received an email today with the above coupon enclosed. While the prospect of buying a used DS Lite might not be strong in some of you, those still rocking a Phat and looking for incentive to upgrade could have found just that. Any of you out...

Reader John wrote in to us and relayed a very sad story. While making his daily trek home from school, he was forced to pause his game of Cooking Mama and place his DS into the safety of his pocket as he crossed an intersection. Apparently, the DS fell out of said pocket and John neither heard nor...

A little creativity can go a long way in putting together something unique without having to spend much. Emma Bryce crafted this case for her DS Phat using only ribbons and a placemat. The inside flap even holds three game carts, though we can't vouch for the sturdiness of its grip. We see these t...
