Pikmin Headed to DS?

GS: While many assume a new Pikmin would be a perfect fit for the Wii, do you think a Pikmin game would work on the Nintendo DS?

SH: As Nintendo DS has its own unique advantages, it would be possible to create a gameplay-control mechanism which would be good for and unique to Pikmin.

The above quote was taken from a recent interview with Gamespot stating that everyone’s favorite plant friends “Pikmin”, may be headed to the DS in the near future. If you are an avid reader of this site, you know yours truly “loves him some Pikmin” and would purchase it, day one, upon release.

How do yo guys think it would play out on DS?

Peach’s Castle Gamecube Tech Demo

Appartently back in 2002, Nintendo had sent out an interactive tech demo featuring Peach’s Castle to certain developers.

LittleBigPlanet Contra Level

In a word, “Amazing”. I urge all of you reading this post to watch the video above and be prepared to be amazed. LittleBigPlanet was the reason why I bought a PS3 (game wise anyway…The main reason is because I wanted a Blu-Ray player for my brand new Sony Bravia) and I am certain a number of you out there will be amazed at the video above.

Truly inspiring.
