The DSi is here, and we are here to tell you all about it! Nintendo’s new handheld has made a splash in the news, and also in our gametime! Tune in and hear what Edgar and I think about the system, it’s awesome features and strange quirks!

If you are interested in DSiWare I give a rundown on some of the launch titles that I’ve had the opportunity to play. Also in this episode we talk about Personal Trainer Walking, the first DSi enhanced title will hit soon, a video on demand service may hit our favorite little handheld, and finally talk about a new flash game on Rockstar’s site that will give you some ingame cash in Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars!

Until next time, enjoy your DS:Life!

  1. Great episode as usual, thanks for the heads-up on the DSi. I will be trying to sell my DS lite and get a spankin’ new DSi!

    At one point Edgar referred to the European sales data as “UK sales”, there are other countries here as well, you know. ;)

    C.O.R.E. got delayed till May if I’m correct.

    Hi guys, writing from Ireland and have recently discovered this podcast, it’s excellent!

    I work as a Software Engineer and am now spending my days coding while listening through the entire back catalogue of podcasts, very theraputic!

    My love affair with the DS only recently started, on April 3th, EU DSi launch day. The games are amazing, currently playing Professor Layton, GTA and New Super Mario Bros.

    Anyway, I better finish. Keep up the good work and I’m looking forward to the next episode.

    James.

  3. I will not be purchasing the DS, because I have too many GBA games. But I may if the DSI ware library were a little bigger.
