Nintendo’s announcement of the Nintendo 2DS is one of the most surprising developments in the gaming world this year. As an entry-level variant of the Nintendo 3DS, the 2DS can play all 3DS games and thousands more DS games.
Sebastian Vargas has a got a knack for miniatures, but not the usual kind of dolls or ponies. Sebastian makes playful tiny replicas of technology, like the PSP, Nintento DS, Sony Playstation, old cell phones, and DSLR cameras.
These days I can’t think of any game so difficult that I need to cheat in order to beat it – especially since the advent of infinite game saves and Internet walkthroughs. I remember the good old days of the 80s/90s, when some games were so hard that you almost had to cheat to beat them.
Big N today took wraps off of their much-anticipated Nintendo 3DS handheld video game system at the E3 2010 show.
The new handheld looks sort of like a DSi, but features a widescreen 3.5″ 3D display at the top which requires no glasses to see the its 3D effect.
These new photos are the work of Joseph Ford, who’d like nothing more than to have a enormous Nintendo DS building. The only place that this could ever be made would be Japan.
Still, it kind of looks awesome.
Even though the name of Nintendo’s next-gen portable gaming platform hasn’t yet been officially announced, since it’s going to be a 3D device, it’s appropriate that 3DS was just trademarked by the Japanese giant.
So with the Nintendo DSi XL having just hit U.S. stores this week, word is floating around the web that Nintendo is already working on a brand-new handheld that will support true 3D graphics.
While there are no images of the 3DS yet, what I have here is a video – no, not of the Nintendo 3DS.
The Professor Layton series may not be quite as big in the western world as it is in Japan, but that doesn’t mean we can’t appreciate a good puzzle–or a cracking good Nintendo DS case. This booklike case not only offers protection for your handheld… it intellectualizes it, too!
If you like adventure games, things that are pretty, or just having an interesting experience in general, then listen up: maybe, just maybe, there’s gonna be a sequel to Hotel Dusk, the gorgeous graphic detective game.
I think we can all agree that Hello Kitty is pretty cute. Hello Kitty floating on a fluffy confection of fake cream and glittery jewels… well, that’s something else altogether. Stunning, certainly. And the gleam might just put your eye out.
So you’ve got a Nintendo DS, or maybe a DSi. Maybe even something else, some other gadget with a similar shape. You’ve got to put it into something to protect those smooth surfaces. Why not shove it down the gullet of a friendly monster?
Seriously, this has to be the least-scary monster I’ve ever seen, even with those fangs.
I love playing video games because they give me quantifiable proof of my progress, unlike in real life where sometimes (cue violins) you just don’t know where you are, what you’re supposed to do and where you’re going (stop music).
Are you paying attention? This will be a quick tutorial on customizing your Nintendo DS Lite. Here we go. Step one: draw some stuff. It probably helps if you can draw. Step two: vectorize that business and print it out.
Dementium: The Ward broke some untrodden ground on the Nintendo DS, as an M-rated horror-themed shooter, so it isn’t particularly surprising that the game is getting a sequel. What is surprising (and amazing) is this cover shot.
Well, that’ll sure get your attention when you’re just flipping past game covers at the store.
If the only design on your consoles are dust and fingerprints, you might want to check out Etsy shop NoveltyGallery and their vinyl skins for various game systems. Unfortunately there are no video game-themed skins; most of them are abstract, floral, or child-friendly designs.
You know what’s awesome about portable game systems? Portability, of course! And what’s awesome about arcade cabinets? Everything. So it’s clear that arcade cabinets are, in fact, better than portables… which means it’s totally okay to hack your portables into your arcade cabinets.
