Fast and (mostly) furious

Need For Speed: Nitro-X has a lot going for it. It's a racing game on a download service that's saturated with puzzlers, for one thing, but it's also part of one of the most long-running and successful racing franchises around. Is it a stripped down...

Looks like the expected release date for September 20, 2010 turned out to be false.

When will it hit the 'states!? I was actually pretty excited about this one. the only other good dsiware games are Mario vs. Donkey kong and
X-scape, and I've beaten them! I hope it comes to the dsi shop around christmas time...

@X-145 Believe me, there are more good DSiWare games, Shantae being the obvious choice (it got 10/10 here on NL).

Also, I hope this doesn't turn out like Asphalt 4, but it has bad graphics and I never get my hopes up for Ninty's download services these days.
