Jeezy Creezy, that’s a lot of DS/3DS cartridges ⊟
HxCurt claims it’s 1,200 lbs of tiny cartridges, which seems like an exaggeration, but this is the closest I’ve ever seen to 1,200 lbs of DS/3DS games so who knows. It’s not exactly the sort of hoard you’d want for your collection, though, seeing as half of them appear to be copies of iCarly 2, and the other half is made up of Dreamworks Kart, Rabbids: Travel in Time 3D, Wappy Dog, Gourmet Chef, and other junk.

Ace Attorney Investigations 2 beta translation patch released ⊟
What a great month it’s been for DS games and fan translations! You can grab the beta patch for this 2011 sequel to the Miles Edgeworth spin-off at GBAtemp. Naturally, you’ll need a digital copy of the game, one we hope you procured in a somewhat legal manner with a purchased copy (you can buy the import game here).

The Retro Game Challenge 2 fan translation has arrived ⊟

By God, they’ve done it. The fan translation team led by Aaron Chmielowiec has released the first version of its Game Center CX 2/Retro Game Challenge 2 patch.

This thing looks hella professional! All the text and graphics have been changed. What an impressive effort for a game that, by all accounts, deserves this kind of love. I’m finally going to play those adventure games… my copy of the game is forever stopped there.

Nintendo WiFi Connection not quite dead ⊟
Nintendo set today as its execution date for the DS and Wii’s online services, but hackers have found a way to keep the ol’ Connection alive. There’s now a private server where you can grab DLC for DS games (like Dragon Quest IX) and even play multiplayer on a selection of titles (including Mario Kart DS).
The catch is that you’ll need a digital copy of each game to patch (preferably one you’ve backed up yourself using homebrew tools). And you’ll also need the appropriate devices to play those back-ups on a DS or 3DS. But, hey, I’m not going to let that stop me from making and sharing this ridiculous GIF.

How to Deco-Den your handheld ⊟

This video is more than a year old, but it’s the weekend and this whole production is super cute. If you can’t bear to apply all these sweets to your portable, however delectable it might end up looking, TheBerryholic has also posted deco-den videos with 3DS and 3DS XL cases. Thanks to My Handheld for the link!

Ace Attorney Piano album ⊟

Sounds great, if these clips from the recording sessions are any indication! The album, due out April 23, features 19 tracks from the first three Ace Attorney games, because Capcom apparently chooses not to acknowledge the rest of them. Via Siliconera.

Less hair, belly button for Gunvolt in the U.S. ⊟

Not a less hairy belly button mind you — I assure you that Gunvolt, alias STEVE VOLT, has a belly button that’s just as smooth in Japan as in North America. But we won’t get to see that sleek tummy or his braids Stateside, due to the UNACCEPTABLE censorship in our version, all due to some rogue producer at Inti Creates.

Yes this might seem trivial, but it’s a slippery slope (much like Gunvolt’s velvety navel), one we shouldn’t stand for when this releases to the 3DS eShop this Summer. Thankfully there are heroes out there voicing their dissent over the matter, who will hopefully persuade Inti Creates to reconsider this foolish decision. Thanks to Rockman ZX for bringing this to our attention.

Incredible Ghost Trick music video ⊟

Wow! This music video by sue composites pretty much every Ghost Trick character into a series of vignettes, united by Inspector Cabanela’s smoothest moves. I just, just replayed Ghost Trick over the holidays, and loved it again, and now I want to re-replay it. What a game that is. And yeah, there’s a lot of dancing in it. Credit to Hatsuu for the link!

Tiny Cartridge • TinyCast

TinyCast 25! We spend this episode eulogizing Nintendo’s WiFi Connection service — speculating about its sudden death, discussing the difficulties of preservation, and lamenting the online features we’ll miss. We also go on tangents about game ports and Children of Mana for some reason.

DS/Wii WiFi Connection, 3DS Video app closing ⊟
Well that was a weird way to end the 3DS’s birthday. Along with releasing another vague firmware update for the 3DS last night, Nintendo announced that it’s closing the WiFi Connection service for DS and Wii games around the world on May 20, as well as its 3DS Video app in Japan and Europe at the end of March (no word yet on the North American edition).
This won’t affect devices that use Nintendo Network for online features like the 3DS and Wii U, but this is a huge blow to a lot of games. Say goodbye to online multiplayer in Mario Kart DS and The Legend of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass. No more DLC for people who decide to pick up classics like Dragon Quest IX. Hope you don’t mind not accessing leaderboards or trading user-generated content (WarioWare DIY…) anymore!
You will still be able to purchase DSiWare games — online features for those titles will no long worker, though — and use the built-in web browser on the DSi, though. You will be able to buy Wii games through the Wii Shop, too.
This really, really sucks. I can deal with Nintendo Video shutting down, as it was a service that never lived up to its potential despite some fun offerings (shout-outs to Dinosaur Office). But losing WiFi Connection makes some quality DS games feel incomplete as far as content goes at best, and removes critical features in other titles at worst.

Flushed: a zine about toilet gaming ⊟
It’s an unavoidable truth of the handheld gaming hobby: someone is playing DS/3DS/Vita/etc. on the toilet. I don’t want to hear about real people doing it, but I will happily read articles in a zine that I can pretend are 100% fictional accounts of hypothetical toilet gaming.
And that’s Flushed: an e-zine edited by Lana Polansky, Samantha Allen and Elizabeth Simins (who created the cover above) “exploring the beautiful intersection of videogames and toilets.”
You can get the zine at Gumroad for whatever price you’re willing to pay, and then read it anywhere. Even THERE, I guess. I guess.
