I would think a mixture of text and video would work well, not every bit of news needs a dedicated video. Text for the stuff diring the week, a weekily video wrapup, and maybe a special "breaking news" type thing for the big stuff with some commentary by the entiire team giving their opinions.
Great addition to the team, one of the few names that I actually recognize when I dabble in G4.
The main thing to remember is that it is January, this is the lowest inventory period of any retailer. Very little stock comes in as companies are consolodating for the end of the fiscal year and fiiguring out what to keep producing, and what to discountinue.
As for the DS section in my little corner of the retail world, we have a good bit ofcgames marketed to the tween segment, but we did also get in Ghost Trick on Wednesday. We still get in a decent supply of Mario titles, with Mario vs DK being the popular choice at the moment.
What really started to disappear has been accessories for the DS Lite. A significant chunk of them have gone clearence and discountinued. Even extremely popular things like the Nerf DSL cases have been priced to sell.
My guess is that retailers are getting prepared to a point for the new Nintendo handheld.
Amazing title, and a surprisingly dark for a Nintendo developed game. Just exploring the world on the final day, and seeing all of the NPC's reactions towards the coming doom of Termina can get emotional.
Best way to play it right now, outside of getting the N64 version, is via the VC. The Collector's Disk version is bugged to high hell, and has rough framerate issues that kill the experience.
