July is now half over and summer is still not here?! Why! WHY!! WHY!!! Oh well I guess we will all just have to stay inside and play.

Little Mac holds on for a second Month at Number 1, and Mario Galaxy drops completely from the list after holding tight to the #6 spot for the previous three months (at least as long as we have been tracking) – did it supernova?!. Replacing Mario is a new game Excitebots: Trick Racing which looks very promising and fun. Very little else to report – the rest of the list remains unchanged from June…

Holding tight and continuing to burn up the number one spot on the charts is Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon. Along with the “warmer”, not hotter, weather we find three new comers to the DS list this month; Another fitness game taking a huge step forward with the number 4 premier of Personal Trainer: Walking – people must like getting fit or something – eww exercise! Pokemon Platinum I choose you over that other Pokemon game from the #7 position in June, you are so much cooler the Mystery Dungeon and finely Rhythm Heaven makes it DS list premier at the #8 slot – bumping yet another Pokemon title from the list.
