Hell is other Nintendo 3DS'

March 27th was a pretty big day for gamers as Nintendo put out their 3DS. I had my worries about if the system would work for me, but upon seeing one launch day I ran right out to get one. Little did I know then that my $250 investment wo...

 
 
 
 

Just a quick little post

Good news, everyone! After counting the remaining coins I had after my first blog post, my lucky penny is still here. Of course, nothing tremendously lucky usually happens when I've got it, so I'm not sure why- right. I'm gonna keep thi...

 
 
 
 

3DS Mii hunting, Sony lameness continues...

For some reason my 3DS has decided to ignore Miis. This feature began after the battery ran low trigger attention grabbing blinking red lights. Coincidence, not sure but I've not been able to establish Mii connection since. Nevertheless tod...

A Sad Day Indeed

Well my friends, my luck just did not hold out. Even after selling off various items around my house, I am sad to say that I must sell my 3DS after all. If any of you were thinking of buying one, here's a great opportunity. I will ship t...

I love my 3DS, but man, has it got some competition

No, not the NGP that has only shown off one game. I'm talking about the handheld that has a library of thousands, a comparatively monster battery life of 5.5 hours, TV-Out AND 2 controller support. At this point, you're thinking about this ...

In Defense of 3DS Streetpass

"Streetpass is useless in the U.S." "Streetpass only works in Japan." Have you heard someone utter either of the phrases listed above? Chances are you have. It's become a pretty frequent complaint in the days following the 3DS launch....

 
 
 
 

Friday's Random Ramblings

My 3DS meets Wondercon.

Nintendo 3DS Review-ish

So my girlfriend got her 3DS yesterday. I was both excited and a bit envious; we have (of course) separate spending accounts, so she could afford one while I couldn't, which annoys me a bit since I'm the biggest game nerd of the two of us. ...
