This episode brings the trio back together to talk about all things Nintendo DS… some Wii and PSP chatter slips in there too. We discuss the total pwning that Nintendo is doing to the portable market in Japan, mention the Opera browser and how the reviews that are out there may be flawed, briefly mention the new DS models and colours here and abroad, then even get some time to chat a bit about the homebrew scene.

  1. Getting Now!! WOOTZ0r!

  2. Micheal(coded_one)

    Awesome I’m hearing it right now.

  3. RE: USB Wifi Adaptor

    Lloyd when you use the Wifi Adaptor do you still keep the Windows computer connected to the router or directly connected to the cable/adsl modem (or whatever BB connector you usine in Canda)?

    I’m having a problem with SuperMariokart and wifi with my Netgear router. I don’t get cut off but I rarely connect to more than one player. I didn’t realise this was a problem till I visited a local MacDs with a wifi hotspot and I could connect to three people almost everytime.

  4. I also have a netgear. I think your problem is… it’s netgear.

    They’re just terrible routers is all.

  5. Strange, I use a Netgear and I’ve never had any problems connecting, staying connected or finding more than one player.

    Anyway, great podcast guys. Keep it up.

  6. I just picked up a new DS Black and was curious if anyone knows of a good case for it? I’d prefer something large enough for the power adapter as well as a whole slew of DS and GBA games. I’m also looking for something that preferably lays flat with a zipper top or perhaps clamshell style. I don’t really like the backpack style case’s as they are hard to stash anywhere and tend to fall over instead of staying put when you set them down.

    Thanks for the help.

  7. I saw some DSL cases at Wal Mart… Looked not bad, I guess. Fits your description….

  8. RE: Netgear routers

    Don’t have a problem with my Xbox 360, PSP or laptop using my router, only the DS has the problem..which is a bit of downer since I’m a fan of Mariokart. Ah well back to the local MacDs…

  9. Hey guyz, don’t mean to be a butt, butt where’s the new episode? You’ve already created a void i can fill with my new-founded DS Lite entertainment. I listened to your show once and went and bought a DS the next day. (Now I’m a regular listener of Nerdblurb, too.) peace.

  10. Hey guys, just started listening to your podcast the other day. Great work, keep it up.
    I was wondering what your thoughts are on the Max Media Player. I am considering buying one for my ds lite, and wanted to know what your take on it is. I think it would be cool to use it for watching video. Does it have decent video quality when viewing on the DS?

  11. I guess this is the old-schooler in me coming out (born in 79′ high school class of ’97) but it would be oh-so-money if they released a Punch-Out DS as well as a Street Fighter or Mortal Kombat DS. I know it’s not the 80s or 90s anymore, and I promise I’m not a violent man. But gosh that’d be cool.
