Tetris DS on WiFi is going to ROCK

Keeping with my Nintendo DS obsession^h^h^h^h^h^h^h^h^h theme of this week, I heard there is to be a “Tetris DS” released on March 20th. It has Wi-Fi and will allow up to four players to play over Wi-Fi, or eight over local wireless. Sorry to the non-game playing people reading this, but I’m finally feeling like my purchase might have been worth it, now that the big N is finally starting to release Wi-Fi titles. So in celebration of Tetris DS I give you:

L / reverse L
You’re the dependable all-purpose utilityman. You
can squeeze into tight places, fill big gaps,
make a space for your fellow pieces, and rack
up big-point triples with equal ease. You
Which Tetris piece are you?

The DS is going to the Opera

I just heard some wonderful news. Opera is parterning with Nintendo to release an Opera Cart for the Nintendo DS. I’ve been waiting for this for quite some time. Think about it, a portable web browser with out local storage, that has nearly insta on capability. No need to worry about viruses, or security exploits because all you woudl have to do is turn off the device and turn it back on. I fear though that they wont go this route, that they will include plenty of local storage for hackers to mess wth. Even worse is the posibiltiy of hackers exploiting code that then allows them to overwrite teh firmeware in the DS itself and really trash it. But I suppose that would really only happen if someone went to more nefarious sites.

DS Addiction

I added a new category, “Fun & Games”. The main reason for this is so that people can avoid my Nintendo DS ramblings. To that end… Here I go again…

I picked up Bomberman DS and have been playing it the past few days. It’s fun. I am dissapointed that they did not include Wi-Fi support. I have heard rumors that the next one will. I’ll believe it when I see it. I suspect that the company doesn’t want to include Wi-Fi becasue they would have to maintain servers etc. Of course I could be mistaken, and the Wi-Fi could be something that Nintendo themselves maintain. Bomberman does at least include the single cartridge multiplayer capabilities.
