Determination, however, sometimes means taking a closer look.
Gallery: Jimi Game Shells
What's a busy gamer to do? One shell holds DS games, but is less versatile, while the other is more versatile, but doesn't properly accommodate the format most important to us. Between gaming, photography classes, and the occasional foray into homebrew, this blogger could certainly use a more flexible media solution, and in this situation? That meant a little creativity was required. The first test was simple, and can be seen in the photo up top: fit the other cards into the cunning little cut-outs, and then just shove the DS games in on top. This works with minimal rattle; since the Jimi shells have that nifty recycled polypropylene lining, the rattle is so quiet that it's barely noticeable, and the games are cushioned regardless. Workable, yes -- and it retains the shell's waterproof capabilities, which is nice -- but not optimal. Time for round two.
And that meant the lining had to go -- at least on one side. Unfortunately, this means the case is no longer waterproof, but it does provide space for a third game instead of simply two, and with absolutely no rattle. Three games may not be enough for most people, but it's plenty for me. Hey, let's be honest here -- one in the DS and two more in the case is probably enough, so long as I remember to change them out occasionally!

Yes, must honor the cat of the house. Also, that first picture with the cat gives a good sense of how damn small these things are. More of these pulled out shots in future pics of little cases, please.
