Celebrate Mario Kart Wii's release! Play Mario Kart DS this ThurDSay!


Hey DS enthusiasts! You might have noticed that there was no ThurDSay last week. I had some real-life obligations, and nobody could step up to take my place as Nintendo Wi-Fi extraordinaire.

So anyway, I just picked up Mario Kart Wii, but I haven't yet played it. What better way to prepare than to get some Mario Kart DS on? I could only think of one way (hint: it involves actually playing Mario Kart Wii).

If you've been following ThurDSay since its induction, you'll realize that this is the first repeat we've had. But you may also remember that I promised to up my library after I get paid next, which happens to be this ThurDSay! So please, let me know what games you'd like to play online with other Dtoiders, and I will try to pick them up to be ready for next time. Here's the list so far:

Bomberman Land Touch (though probably not as good as Bomberman Live)
Jump Ultimate Stars (Styos won't shut up about it)
Planet Puzzle League (I love Puzzle League, but I'm iffy about the touch controls)
Worms: Open Warfare 2 (if it's as good as Worms: Armageddon, then I'm in)

So let me know what else I'm missing, and as usual meet up at 7PM Pacific this ThurDSay in the unofficial Destructoid IRC channel. Hope to see you there.
