Next month the DS console is five years old in Europe, and to celebrate we're going to be hosting a special DS edition of the podcast.
We'd love to hear your memories and thoughts on the DS on the show. What's your favourite DS game? How do you think the console has changed gaming? Do you have any special memories of the DS?
You can get involved in one of many ways. If you have Skype, call the username NintendoLife and leave a voicemail message.
Don't have Skype? Record your thoughts on your PC and send them in an email to the podcast team.
Really don't like the sound of your own voice? Feel free to email or message them to us on Twitter and we'll do our best to read some out on the show.
The next show will be up on Monday, March 1st, so you have nearly two weeks to get your messages in to us. Celebrate the DS with Nintendo Life!
I am not ignoring you. I just do not post much.

Well, I jsut wasn't expecting to be the only one here, but oh well, here it goes.
The DS is probably one of the biggest video game consoles of all time, and probably the biggest in terms of handhelds. The first generation of DS's were revolutionary as being a sort of N64 on the go, thanks to the help of titles such as Super Mario 64 DS and Mario Kart DS. And having the ability to play old GBA games was a very smart, and helped with sales of the system. With all of Nintendo's biggest franchises appearing on the system, there was no lack of good games to go with it. I remember getting the system on Christmas back in 2005 with Mario & Luigi, Partners in Time, which was one of the best RPG's on the system at the time. Eventually, the DSi came out, and with the new system, came the first DLC for a Nintendo handheld. With reasonably priced games for go, DSiware has already become a fairly hyped gaming network, so to speak. But the system has some of the best games possible, with my favorites being Kirby SuperStar Ultra, the Professor Layton series, and hopefuly, the upcoming Sonic Classic Collection, and Pokemon HeartGold/ SoulSilver. So, cheers to the DS, and may the DSi live for another 5 years, and continuing to provide us with great games, both downloadable, and card based.
