DS Daily: Laser Lites

Yesterday in our Show and Tell feature, we showed off a DS Lite owned by a reader who bravely decided to have Tarepanda etched permanently on the surface. Permanently. With lasers (probably).

The major problem we have with tattoos applies here, though this is somewhat less permanent and painful: it's often difficult to think of a design that is so awesome that you'd consent to damaging your (skin/property) forever just to show it off. We could never take the plunge, but most of you are bolder than we are. Have you had something laser-etched or otherwise engraved onto your DS? Would you? If so, what? Llama or non-llama?

Show and Tell: Droopy

In today's Show and Tell, we're not bothering with the fleeting relationships we sometimes have with skins or cases. Today, we're examining the hardcore dedication required for permanent mods. When you really like something, you get it etched into the very surface of your DS.

At least, that's what one reader did, with cute little tarepanda. See the finished result in all its glossy ebon glory in the gallery below, along with a few other choice pieces from Drew's collection.

Show and Tell is all about your stuff, so long as it's Nintendo-related. We love to see your collections, your crafts, your frosted creations, your t-shirts and swag of all sorts. Just snap a few pictures, tell us what's up, and send it all to showmeit [at] dsfanboy [dot] com. We'll take care of the rest.

Find the differences between Quickspot and this new San-X game

Hint: there aren't many. San-X no Chara Sagashi Land (San-X Character Searching Land) offers the exact same kind of gameplay as Quickspot, with San-X trappings. San-X, for those of you who don't follow the Adorable Junk scene, is a sub-label of Hello Kitty creators Sanrio whose characters are ... different enough in some inscrutable way to be separate from the main brand.

So, instead of getting to look at two nearly-identical Katamari Damacy images (sigh) and drawing circles around the differences, you'll be scrutinizing Tarepanda the sleepy panda, Kogepan, the anthropomorphic bread who has depression, and others. And for your troubles you get a gallery of mascot images. Of the same characters you were just staring at.

We don't mean to sound down on the game-- we're actually really surprised at what new genres the DS design is encouraging. There may have been 'look at two things at once and spot the differences' games before, but the DS is absolutely perfect for them.

We've included a few precious screens after the break.
