DS Renaissance

Funny how things happen, isn’t it? I’ve been looking forward to getting my PSP in Japan – I have a US copy of Wipeout Pure sitting on my desk and next week I’ll have Virtua Tennis and Transformers The Movie on UMD – and my DS has been collecting dust pretty much since I got Wario Ware for Christmas last year.

I felt an urge out of the blue to play it a couple of days ago and have been playing around with the minigames in Super Mario 64 on and off since. When I somehow managed to spend almost an hour playing Luigi’s card memory game and another hour on that weird shell bowling game I knew that I really needed a new DS game, and the VGC was selling Yoshi Touch & Go new for £20 which is less than any of the major online retailers.

It’s one of them that I’d been meaning to pick up for a while (along with Kirby Canvas Curse and Meteos, which I’ll probably pick up in Japan) and although it’s pretty basic, almost to the point of being a tech demo, I’ve been enjoying it. I’m always up for a high score attack and although this one could do with a bit more variety it’s good fun and I might review it when I get some time.

I’ve also got my name down for a US copy of Nintendogs when the VGC gets it in late this week and should be buying Dachshund & Friends. I’m intrigued to try it after all the hype so I’ll write some impressions when I get my hands on it, hopefully on Friday.
