Ugh, did you have to use the word "sparkles," Nintendo? That word's sort of taboo right now.
Okay, fortunately, none of the downloads this week involve Twilight. I'd thank the Price of Darkness for that, but unfortunately, his game hasn't shown up on WiiWare this week. Maybe I will instead just thank the heir to the name, Ozzy Osbourne, when he guest hosts Raw tonight.
Anyway, before I mutter too much about the nearly complete and utter ruination of vampires, the "sparkle" alluded to is a new DSiWare app from Nintendo called Sparkle Snapshots, which will run you 500 DSi Points and let you pretty up pictures taken with the DSi camera. Fun at parties, I'm sure. Read More

One of the most hyped features (somewhere after Netflix and Avatars) of the New Xbox Experience is the ability to install games to the Xbox 360's hard drive. However, as Halo 3 has taught us, it's not quite a perfect procedure. In fact, it would seem that there is a small number of titles which don't really see any improvement when installed, thanks to the way the developers designed them.
According to Destructoid, these titles are Big Bumpin', College Hoops 2k7, Pocket Bike Racers, Sneak King, Crackdown, Dead or Alive Xtreme 2, and Quake II from the Quake IV Bonus Disc (according to NeoGAF). Or, to put it in a different perspective, it's the three Burger King promo games, an out-of-date basketball game, a game most people bought just to get into the Halo 3 beta, and a game most people probably don't want anyone else knowing they own, anyway. Takes a bit of the sting out of it, I figure.
So now we know which ones don't work. But of those that do work, how much space will they take up? This is a question that's no doubt on the minds of many... or at least, however many bought a 360 with a 20GB hard drive.
Fortunately, Sean has compiled a list over at NeoGAF which answers that very question, along with a few notes here and there about the reduction in load times. However, he notes "I can't possibly verify all of these sizes/notes, just going off of what people tell me. If there's an error please correct it and be nice about it."
For your Kombo Konvenience, the list is posted right after the kut... er, cut.
