Want Free DSi Games? Enter DSiCade

Wednesday, April 29, 2009 · 0 comments

If in case you need MORE games for your DSi (or any Nintendo DS for that matter), then point your DSi Browsers to http://www.dsicade.com/ for some good old casual gaming. 

DSiCade is not much at to look at for now, but I see potential in there. There are two games available as of this post, namely Touch Mii and War Games.

Touch Mii is a simon-says-like game where you just follow the pattern the AI has set.

War Games on the other hand is a Missile Command clone.

Also, there an extra awesome chat feature called SHOUTBOX! where you can converse with other DSi owners around the globe.

As mentioned earlier, DSiCade has a great future. Can't wait to see more games from them soon!

New DSiWare Goodies Hit Japan

Monday, April 27, 2009 · 0 comments

Japanese DSi owners are treated to four new DSiWare apps and games ready for download recently. Out of the four, I want two badly. Guess which they are.

Chotto Magic Taizen: Date Uranai (200 Points): Need help with your date? Then this new Master of Illusion trick will help determine where your special someone wants to go on a date.

Itsudemo Puri-Kura Kira Deco Premium! (Anytime Print Club Sparkling Deco Premium) (500 Points): This cool application is used for editing and decorating images taken from your DSi camera. You can then trade photos with your friends or transfer it on your mobile phone.

Atsumeru Egao-chou (Smile Collection Book) (500 Points): A photo album dedicating to photos of friends smiling. Yup, they have to be smiling to be in this album. There's a bunch more activities you can do with it including a compatibility test.

Chotto Brain Training: Sudoku-hen (500 Points): On the more serious (and brain-aching side) this adds 200 new sudoku puzzles to Brain Training.

Moving Memo Pad was also updated to version 2. You can now rate videos, make comments using drawings, and upload to channels.

Skype to Come to DSi... Sort of

Tuesday, April 21, 2009 · 0 comments

Is the beloved VoIP/Instant Messaging application Skype headed for the DSi? The possibility is quite high, based on this post from TechRadar.

The Skype representative questioned did not give a definite yes, but did not shut down the possibility either. In fact the rep also said it would be technically possible to develop a Skype app for the Nintendo DSi.

Sony's PSP has had Skype for some time now. It would be another nudge for the DSi if they can pull this off.

DSi Sold 435,000 First Week in US

Saturday, April 18, 2009 · 0 comments

The numbers are in, and it looks like Nintendo has done it again with the DSi. After a week from its launch, Nintendo claims that the DSi sold a staggering 435,000 units. That's almost twice the DS Lite's numbers, which sold 226,300 systems during its launch week.

The DSi almost made waves in recently, becoming the fourth-fastest selling console in UK history. March is also a good month for Nintendo, outselling Wii and DS rivals.

If you're a fan of the DS or DSi, these numbers shouldn't surprise. Who could resist the DSi's unruly charm??

Made in Ore is Made of Awesome

Wednesday, April 15, 2009 · 0 comments

Nintendo recently launched a site dedicated to Made in Ore, a kit for making your own mini-games WarioWare style! The site features screen shots and videos of Made in Ore in action.

As with the last WarioWare for the DS, Made in Ore features different WarioWare employees, and each has his/her own style. I personally like 9-Volt and his "Nintendo" themed mini-games.

Here's a video of Made in Ore in action:

Play Piano on Your DSi

Tuesday, April 14, 2009 · 0 comments

Do you want to make music with your DSi? Too confused with Korg DS-10? Then check out the video below that teaches how to make an instant piano out of your household DSi!

Basically this neat little trick uses "Graffiti Mode" of Nintendo DSi. Make use of music note stamps, which changes pitch depending on where you place it, and you have yourself a party!

DSiWare Downloads This Week

Monday, April 13, 2009 · 0 comments

This week's DSiWare downloads feature the first third-party offering for the service. There's just two, but both are made of awesome.

  • Mixed Messages (500 Nintendo DSi Points) - Much like LOL for the DS, Mixed Messages is a party game for people who can't get enough WiFi play. It supports up to 21 players and is subbed as a "telephone" for the DSi.. well, sort of. See, the game starts out by one player writing a sentence, then the next player will try to draw what the sentence describes. The next player will then view the drawing and write a sentence about it. You get the idea...
  • Master of Illusion Express: Shuffle Games (200 Nintendo DSi Points) - This is an installment of Nintendo's Master of Illusion Express series. As with previous games, this entry teaches you another trick - The Vanishing Card trick. Farout dude.

DSi US and UK Sales? 600k!

Friday, April 10, 2009 · 0 comments

The DSi broke every sales record imaginable when it was released in Japan. Well, not really... But it did banged some numbers up! And it did so again when it was released in the US and UK, selling over 600k units!

Nintendo proudly announced that the DSi sold 300,000 units in the US and another 300,000 in the UK during its launch weekend. If Dr. Kawashima taught me correctly, that's a total of 600,000!

Blue Badger DSi Spotted

Sunday, April 5, 2009 · 0 comments

I hope you all got that shiny new DSi by now! I know I did. And it's wicked awesome. But enough gloating from me, and let's head for more limited DSi edition shall we? More specifically, the Japan-only Gyakuten Kenji Premium Edition box. Yup, another Japanese exclusive. Whoopdeedoo.

But hey, at least we can look at the pretty pictures, yes?

This beauty will cost about $240 and includes the white DSi plus the mandatory Blu Badger and the much-awaited Gyakuten Kenji game.
