anyone interested in this community still?
rather than get an ipod or anything like that, I'm thinking of investing in the movie player / flash cards for my ds lite, and am just looking for some experiences anyone might have had or heard about, regarding size of flashcard, ease of use, any fiddling I need to do to get it to work, that kind of stuff. thanks!
Chocobo and the Magic Picture Book Screens

Go Nintendo has three or so screens from Chocobo and the Magic Picture Book.
The game definitely has an interesting look to it and you would be better off translating the original Japanese site the images are from to get a better feel for what it's all about.
In spite of all the spin-offs from Final Fantasy, we can't help but want to play this one. There have been games based around the chocobo's before and we are excited to see where they are taking these lovable creatures next.

The popular series where your only worry is to blow up your opponent as stylishly as possible is back for another round on the DS.
Bomberman Land: Touch! will feature a Story Mode (explore Bomber Island and unlock mini games), Battle Mode (beat the snot out of your friends) and Attraction Mode (enjoy the mini games you unlocked in Story Mode).
Other good news is that up to four players can battle it out via Wi-Fi connection or two to eight players can compete using either single or multi-card play.
Pokemon Diamond/Pearl Wi-Fi details

Some details about Pokemon Diamond/Pearl's battle and trading systems have been revealed for all of you chomping at the bit needing your daily Pokemon fix.
The Global Trading system sounds like it would be a worldwide type of thing but unfortunately its not. It's regional only. But, it is a great way to barter Pokemon. Trainers type in the Pokemon they are looking for and are shown a list of trainers that have that Pokemon in possession. They can approach a chosen trainer and either have their deal accepted or rejected.
The Battle Tower is pretty interesting and the best thing about it is that you are friend code free! Using the Battle Tower does not require you to use friend codes. You only have to use them in the basements of Pokemon Centers. You will use voice chat to communicate and talk all the trash your heart desires. In the Battle Tower your team is uploaded and only those trainers around your level will be chosen to battle with you.
Pokemon fans get ready! Sounds like Diamon and Pearl are going to be larger than life.

there will be a new Bomberman game for DS being released in early November - titled Bomberland Touch!
most importantly, it will feature multiplayer over the Nintendo WiFi network.
FFIII gameplay preview

Yeah, we know. Final Fantasy III overload. But what's a fan
boy girl to do? We are powerless to resist the lure of the lovingly updated classic. This preview has no random chatter, but only the FFIII goodness we crave. Nice look at the use of the stylus, the battle system, and more. Doesn't look like there's an issue with loading times from one area to the next, but this is just a taste, after all.
DS-Xtreme gives drag 'n drop capability to your Nintendo DS

If you've tossed around the idea of modding your DS
, but never bit the bullet due to the ridiculous amount of loopholes you had to jump through to get your homebrew game on, DS-Xtreme has got you covered. While the precise details of how this thing works its magic are a bit scarce, we do know that the company claims this wonder-working cart will allow you to not only run your favorite homebrew applications on your DS without any
software / hardware hacks or workarounds whatsoever
, but it also rocks a built-in GUI that interfaces with Windows XP via USB 2.0 for some remarkably easy drag 'n drop action. All this sounds mighty impressive, especially compared to the PassMe
alternative that required a old fashion GBA flash card, linker, and a DS game just to get you up and running; the DS-shaped cartridge features 512MB (4Gb) of built-in storage space, USB 2.0 connectivity, a full sized onboard EEprom "complete with some serious custom engineering," and a snazzy GUI that apparently makes managing your apps a breeze. If you've been fantisizing over an easier way to get homebrew
material on your Nintendo DS or DS Lite, the DS-X flash cart appears to a dream come true, but considering there's no specific release date nor price, we're forced to play the "wait and see" game on this one.
