Now Playing: 06/28/09

Art Style Pictobits

I haven’t done a “Now Playing” in like a year and a half, so I figured “why not randomly do one today”. Yesterday, I upgraded to a DSi and have been playing a ton of PiCTOBiTS and BOXLIFE, as well as some Magic the Gathering: Duels of the Planeswakers on XBLA. Gamestop had a pretty good trade in deal (though I’m pretty sure it’s still a rip off) for the DS and DS Lite trade ins, $40 for the DS, and $70 for the DS Lite. Since we had two DS’es and a DS Lite laying around, the DSi upgrade was pretty much free. Sure, I could have probably get more for them on eBay, but I didn’t feel like dealing with that this week.

PiCTOBiTS and BOXLIFE are both downloaded puzzle games (DSiWare) that you would normally have to pay for, but Nintendo has a pretty cool promotion going on right now, you receive 1000 points for free, enough to buy both games (that offer ends 10/05/2009). Both are amazingly fun and addicting (PiCTOBiTS soundtrack is great), below are two game play videos…
