GamePack is an Arduino-powered Game Boy that is as open source as it gets: there’s nary a case to be seen, with all the internals laid bare. It’s sold as a DIY assembly kit.

The Nunchuck as a Lightsaber is as natural as bees on honey, but this Lightsaber Duels ad is packed with so much nerd repartee that you’ll either LOL or throw your Wii Remote at the TV.

Guitar Hero All-Star Ad

We’re man enough to confess our man crushes, but this Guitar Hero: World Tour ad is almost too much; it’s got Tony Hawk, Michael Phelps, A-Rod and Kobe doing Risky Business in their skivvies.

Add Big Bang Mini to your “play while drunk” list: it’s a crazed version of Galaga, with 100 levels of clowns, monkeys and superheroes that explode like a mega July 4th/New Year’s party.

Tom Clancy’s EndWar is available for nearly every platform under the sun, but we actually like the simplified DS and PSP versions most; they’re turn-based with 20 units per faction.

Although it’s not scheduled for release stateside, this Dragon Quest IX trailer really wowed us with the DS’ graphic abilities; the game features co-op multiplayer and turn-based combat.

Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days

January ’09 can’t come soon enough: this trailer for Retro Game Challenge demos a gaggle of 80s-ish games; although subtly renamed by we know R.C. Pro Am when we see it!

Nintendo DSi

The Nintendo DSi is a slimmer version of the DS; it axes the GBA slot but gets a larger 3 1/4″ screen, a 3 MP camera, built-in browser and SD slot. It’ll launch 11/1 in black and white.

This latest “Combat Chain” trailer for Tom Clancy’s WW3 RTS, End War, briefs players on various unit classes. Not much gameplay, but you won’t have to wait long: it’s coming 11/4.

Mad World has a bloody comic book style that reminds us of Frank Miller’s Sin City; what amazes us is that this gritty game is for the Wii, created by Japanese devs for a U.S. audience.
