  1. We'll be taking a little break from the Launch Games videos as we approach Christmas, but they'll return in earnest in the new year with episodes looking at the PlayStation 1 and GameCube's launch titles!

  2. The original DS has a stylus nub on the lanyard intentionally so you could attach it to your thumb for a thumb stylus. This was intentional for games like Metroid or other FPS games. The thumb stylus was always intentional for the system.

    Asphalt Urban GT: An unauthorized port of a racing game that served better on N-Gage

  4. looking back at the launch titles really takes me back to when i initially got my ds for christmas back in 2005, i believe?

    i wanted something else to play aside from sm64ds and around that time there wasn’t anything available aside from most of these games in my local target. grandpa told me to pick out two games so in my bright adolescent mind i decided to buy ping pals and mr driller drill spirits. i managed to make way more enjoyment out of ping pals than i’d like to admit but even back then i remember absolutely hating it

  5. The Urbz DS is actually quite a fun game. It has multiple interesting locations and npc encounters, job minigames, sidequests and things to explore 🙂
