Today's launch of Crosswords DS for the portable Nintendo DS video game system puts more than 1,000 crossword puzzles into the palm of your hand. Crosswords DS includes puzzles at multiple skill levels, so anyone from beginners to experts can give it a try. As you progress, the puzzles get bigger and more challenging. Because you write all your answers directly on the touch screen with your stylus, there's no need for erasers just write your new answer over your old one. Crosswords DS also includes a sophisticated hint system if you get stuck. Just tap the Hint button with your stylus and choose to receive another clue, reveal a hidden letter or solve the whole word.
So, did you notice something about the cover art? Something very important?
This game lacks Wi-Fi!
How in the world did Nintendo mess up on this one?
There has been some Nintendo news of late that they are looking into entering the subscription business to increase their revenue. What better way than by teaming up with a publisher of crossword puzzles and linking it with this?
The Nintendo DS is the ultimate hand held video game system and it does appeal to the non-gamers of the world. NintenDogs and the Brain Age games are a clear indicator of that.
So tell me Nintendo, how could you allow a crosswords game to be released for the DS without a Wi-Fi component?
