All the Nintendo goodness your ears can handle

In the beginning, there was no DS. Now we've had our little chum for half a decade, as the DS hits its fifth birthday in Europe on March 11th. With that in mind, this is a DS special, looking at some of the memories that make this machine so special to gamers everywhere.

Jon Wahlgren tells us about his path to buying a DS, James Newton looks into his dusty box of memories and V8 Ninja, Crystalking18, Dragoon and more Nintendo Life readers tell us about their favourite times too.

That's not all - Kim Wild is back to tell us about her progress with her Wii fitness regime, this time focusing on Ubisoft's My Fitness Coach, and we'll also be going through our First Impressions from the recent Nintendo Media Summit. There's also your chance to get involved with an upcoming interview with Steve Wiebe, information on our upcoming DS birthday celebrations and the launch of Mario Month, another joyous occasion where we look back at the jolly plumber's career.

CORRECTION: The deadline for your Wiebe questions is Friday, March 5th, and not the 7th as said in the podcast.
