E3 continued: 3DS

I remember first hearing about this squeaky bastard not to long ago. I was on that gaming new site N4G, sifting through all the comments of people opinions. Simply put, everyone sounded either angry, or annoyed. There was a lot of "wtf is this shit Nintendo, you gave us the Wii, now this?". But hey, haters gonna hate right, even though there is no reason to judge something you know nothing about.

So the 3DS, I wish I had a lot to say about, but I have not personally experienced the machine hands on. The idea of this briliant 3D without glasses handheld, sounds wonderfull, but until I see it, it isn't yet wonderfull. However, I have seen videos of people seeing the 3DS for the first time, and suffice to say, jaws were on the floor. It was a video of speechless people, and the people who were talking were stuttering as they did so. It is easy enough to say, it is prolly amazing. But, it still saddens me that I won't know its greatness till I buy the damn thing.

The thing about showing the 3DS off at E3, is that it is not really showing us much. Well, those of us who saw live streaming footage at least. We sit looking at our computers as Nintendo's CEO shows off something we can't see. What we get instead is a cute trailer featuring some Nintendo big wigs, and a list of third party companies making games on this thing. Oh yeah, and a trailer for Kid Icarus. But I guess you can't complain, theres just no proper way to convey what the system can do without holding it in your hands. Which I find really interesting. Usually video game developers can at least show you what they're product can do. But in this case, all they could do was tell us. All this does for me, is well, make me twice as excited to buy a 3DS.

It moves from 3D to 2D seemlessly, it can take 3D pictures, and already has a list of games longer then your shlong. Interestingly enough, most of these games are ports from other systems. But I guess there is nothing wrong with reliving great games in a new format. I was just hoping to see a new Metal Gear game, and not a port of an old one, or more then just a ported Zelda game. However, playing those games in 3D still sounds amazing.

I am looking forward to getting my hand on the 3DS, the depth it can give us with games will be amazing. 3D is the future of gaming, but I think Nintendo is the only one who has it right... Which makes you think, if Nintendo has the technoligy to give a 3D with no glasses, what else could they have waiting in the wings for the next few years? I bet they are already beyond 3D with glasses, they are just gonna hold out on us till we ask for something more.

It was obvious all along, this was just the begining

How'd I get into gaming. Go figure I was only three years old. It was past the NES era and even the SNES had been out for sometime now. But my family was poor and I knew little about anything games. I was only freakin' three years old afterall.

My dad could finally afford an NES so he bought one from a pawn shop one day. He got SUper MArio Bros. 1 ,2 and 3, Duck Hunt, the first Lolo, and Kirby's Adventure. My dad wanted to play SMB3 first, so he showed my brother how to do it. I was blown away watching my dad teach my brother how to play. All I could say after that was gimme, gimme, gimme, I want a turn. I will never forget how amazing SMB3 seemed to me. So I played and played. After that I went on to our other games and beat those ones up too.

I started out with an NES, but thats not where it stopped. My dad later bought an SNES. By then me and my two brothers were heavy into games and begged our mother to buy us an N64. I will never forget how awesome Super MArio 64 was and the Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time. After that we begged my mother for a gamecube. By now I was playing video games the most and could beat my brothers hands down at anything.

I got a job. I started to buy my own games and systems from there. My brothers had fallen out of the video game scene and I was the kid no one wanted to play video games with. I bought myself a Wii and soon after an XBox360, future plans are with a PS3 as well. On top of th I haved owned every Nintendo portable system... besides a Virtual Boy.

I don't do online multiplayer, nor do I play games for Multiplayer. I play them for the one player experiences. But if you wanted to come to my house and play some Left4Dead, I wouldn't turn you down. I just much prefer the face to face method of playing multiplayer. I ain't a competitive person so your gamer score doesn't mean a dime to me.

But here is my gamer tag widget anyways, cause I think its really cute!
