Your Week in Nintendo - 11/6/06 - 11/12/06

Welcome to a new feature at DS Fanboy -- where we recap the stories you don't want to miss. Top stories are chosen based on relevance and reader support. For the week beginning Monday, November 6th and ending Sunday, November 12th, Your Week in Nintendo brings you:

5) Elite Beat Agents arrives
At last, the Elite Beat Agents are here to set things right. It's been one of the year's most anticipated titles, and now we can barely take time away from playing it ... unless, of course, we're talking about it.

4) Two great tastes
Just in time for the Wii launch, Nintendo drops a gift from Twilight Princess into Animal Crossing: Wild World, though it won't be revealed until the 17th.

3) The debate rages on
This time, it's not the fanboys arguing about the merits of the DS and the PSP -- it's Sony's Dave Karraker comparing the media hub that is the PSP to Nintendo's handheld gaming system. Who knew being about the games could be so wrong?

2) Things are looking good on the DS
New footage from Dragon Quest Monsters: Joker had fans stumped -- it looks so good, some mistook it for a Wii title! It's good to be reminded that it's not all about stylus-based fun with the DS. Nintendo's innovate handheld is powerful, too.

1) Apple v. Nintendo -- fight!
Our favorite handheld dukes it out with the MacBook Pro for the title of Time magazine's Gadget of the Year.

1. Go vote for the DS Lite! The ADF has taken over the voting, it looks like. (Is there an ADF?)

2. Someone explain to me how an entire laptop can be a gadget? To me a gadget has to be able to fit in your pocket. What's on next year's list, a new Mercedes?

3. Is this post really necessary? I like this blog and I check it all the time. But it doesn't seem that there is enough news about the DS to warrant this. Maybe I am one of the few obsessive readers you have, stopping by every day to see what is new, but this just seems like a filler post to make it seem that there is more going on at this blog.

PS I do believe that your sister blog joystiq attempted something similar to this. And but they stopped doing it after a while (which is their MO really)

4. I kinda wondered at a laptop-as-gadget myself. I mean, I have a MacBook. I support them. But it's not a gadget.

As for this feature, hey, we thought we'd give it a try for a few weeks, see how it goes. We gotta try new things sometimes, you know!
