Nintendo launched the DSi stateside in April and alongside the hardware came 1,000 free DSi Points to be spent in the brand new DSiWare digital download store. However, that promotion is soon to expire.

Nintendo officially announced today that users who buy a DSi and connect it to the DSi Shop by 12PM Pacific on October 5 will receive their points. But anyone who is a mere second late, will be left in the dreary, dark cold of gaming despair.

Fear not, that time and date is not an expiration date for your points, as they never expire, rather the date by which your points must be claimed.

But with the growing category of available titles in the Shop how will you, oh lover of dual screen gaming, know how to pick a free game?

That’s where we come in. We play games and offer our opinions so you can make an informed decision. Below are links to our favorite DSiWare titles. Have at them!
