IGN has added a new article to their DS section, titled Why Nintendo DS Sucks Online. Pretty much cuts right to the chase, that. In any case, it has some valid arguments.

What do you think? I have to agree on it being tough to find a good match in some games, but I’m more concerned with the Wii’s online ability… or lack thereof. If there was just some way to make a better service, even a pay service with improved connections for even games that have already been released, i.e. Super Smash Bros. Brawl, I would be all over that.

I also favor the idea of Club Nintendo integration– I’d love it if there were a profile wherein everyone could not only see what games I’ve owned since whenever, see how long I’ve been subscribed to Nintendo Power, but also see what I’ve accomplished as well. Admittedly, I’m no Achievement Whore, as the vernacular seems to have dubbed it, but I do completely and wholeheartedly support the concept.
