It’s no secret that I’m a fan of new and interesting ways of interacting with music in video game form. That’s why I’m eager to share this video. It’s from another episode of The 1UP Show that was released a few weeks ago. It’s just the one segment of a full episode, but this in particular is what I wanted to share.

The video is of an interview with two developers of a Nintendo DS application called KORG DS-10. It’s a full-blown synthesizer for your DS that allows you to create entire songs that you can output to external mixers and even save to the flash cart. As I am a huge fan of 8-bit music and especially music that is generated using GameBoy systems (pornophonique, anyone?), this application is quite relevant to my interests! I have read in a couple of places that this will be coming to the States at some point, but in the video they are unsure. I don’t know who to believe, but I’ll import it if I have to. I’m pretty sure it’s coming out in July.

New on the DS this week is a neat looking game that I hadn’t heard about until today by the name of Soul Bubbles. It doesn’t seem like the type of game that will be getting a whole lot of attention from the enthusiast press, so I don’t feel bad about throwing this Developer’s Overview video up here. Give it a look, for some reason I felt really relaxed after watching it and wanted to share. I hope you enjoy it too, I am looking forward to trying this game out.

From Xbox to Xbox 360, from there to the PC, Wii and DS, this week’s cheap game has made the rounds. Despite its rather pronounced presence, it’s still good, still cheap, and still worth a look.

Geometry Wars: Retro Evolved was released originally as a mini-game within Project Gotham Racing 2 for the Xbox. Chances are good that you’ve played at least one iteration of GeoWars. However, you may not have known that it is available on the PC, and for less money than anywhere else.

This game is called De Blob. According to The Wikipedia: “de Blob was originally developed as a free downloadable game for the Windows PC by eight students studying Game Design & Development at the Utrecht School of the Arts and one student studying Game and Media Technology at Utrecht University in the Netherlands.”. I’ll take their word for it, and you should too.

Okay, okay. I will try to stop being so publically enamored with DS apps. Until then, have some!

I messed around with Pocket Physics for the DS some more today. Decided to record another video to post here for your enjoyment. I’ll warn you, though: it’s pretty brutal.

Welcome to my very first “feature”!

Getting the most out of my hardware has always been important to me. I’m rarely satisfied with “the way things are”, so I’ll go out of my way to modify my hardware. Things can always be better, right? Right!

Such is the case with my new DS Lite that I was given as an early Christmas present.  I had been wanting one for quite a while but I’d never been able to bring myself to shell out the $130 just for… a handheld. However, it was worth every penny of my brother’s money. There were several games I had been itching to play…
