Costco offers savings on DS games

Today's cheap deals post is brought to you buy the letter "o," and, uh, the word "costc." Get it? Costco?

Now that we've sufficiently subjected you to the horrors of our evening humor (or lack thereof), those of you who are Costco shoppers might be interested in some of the games the retailer is offering for $10.99 thru 6/22:
  • Puzzle Quest
  • Sonic Rush
  • Dragon Quest: Rocket Slime
  • The New York Times Crosswords
  • Disney Meteos
  • Namco Museum DS
  • Cooking Mama
This sale is somewhat "your mileage may vary," since the listed games are not necessarily going to be in stock at your local Costco. These are just some games that we've decided to highlight, though. Check after the break for the full list, as compiled by CAGgers.

We can only guess someone has designated this the official week of licensees. Two movie-based games are hitting shelves, along with remakes, remixes, and redux titles. What a weird week! But how can we complain when there are several new games on the shelves?
  • Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
  • Hoshigami: Ruining Blue Earth Remix
  • Nervous Brickdown
  • Ratatouille
  • Touchmaster DS
  • Vegas Casino High 5!
Hit the jump to see what's out this week in the rest of the world.

[Update: Now with the actual Japanese releases.]

New Touchmaster screens - bar favourites on the way

Here are a bunch of new screens for Touchmaster DS, which should awaken a few hazy memories. The collection of 23 minigames will be familiar to bar patrons everywhere, as they come from Midway's touch screen range.

The minigames include trivia, solitaire, and a range of card and puzzle games. You'll also be able to upload your high scores onto worldwide leaderboards. Better start saving that beer money now-- Touchmaster DS goes on sale June 11th in North America.

Games for every day in Touchmaster ad

Why, it seems like we were just talking about Touchmaster DS, and now we've got all sorts of advertisement goodness! Well, some goodness, at least -- it's not the best DS ad we've ever seen, but it does do a good job of communicating what the games is and why you should buy it this summer, but in a Pepsi challenge, we'd probably take this one. Check out the video after the jump and let us know what you think.

Casual gaming, hardcore competition with Touchmaster

If you've ever spent any time hanging out in bars (something we would never, ever do -- did we mention never ever?), then it's likely you've stumbled across Midway's touch screen games at some point. Now, in a marriage of gaming goodness that seems so obvious in retrospect that we're surprised it took them so long, Midway is bringing a collection of some of their best touch screen games to the DS. Entitled Touchmaster DS, the game will include 23 different games from the arcade machines, including trivia, card games, and puzzlers.

Sounds pretty average for a collection of casual games ... but there's a twist. Touchmaster DS will use the Nintendo WiFi connection to interface with Midway's own scoring system, so player rankings will be compared with those of people all over the world. Players will also be able to participate in tournaments.

Midway expects to release the game later this year.
