Handheld Hotel: Final Fantasy Tactics Advance

Handheld Hotel: Donkey Kong

Handheld Hotel: Samuari Shodown! 2

Handheld Hotel: Aerostar

In my early years as a gamer I was not into SHMUPs at all, its not that I did not like them, its just they did not interest me. The only ones I can remember playing was Xenon II on Game Boy (more on that later), Apadyia on my Nan's Amig...

DSi 3 Months later, Was it Worth it?

So I've had my DSi since it launched down here. I wasn't going to get one at first, I was quite content with my DS Lite and there was not much that appealed to me about the DSi at first. When you just glance at the new features the DSi brin...

 
 
 

Fun with the DSi Camera

Something fun I've found to do on the DSi is to take photos of stuff and then draw over it using the the picture editing software its got on there. I'm not the best at drawing, but I think its somewhat cool to muck around with. I'...

Hey Hey, abit more about myself I guess, I've been playing games since as long as I can recall, my first love was my C64 and have many fond memories of it such as Jumpman, Archon, Aliens, Mario bros & some weird game involving Camels. After that int he early 90's I got my first real taste of Nintendo with the Game Boy and have been hooked ever since. I'm a loyal Nintendo fanboy through and through and while I may hate them sometimes I'll always return because damit because thats just how a fanboy is meant to be. I would consider myself more of a handheld gamer then anything. I enjoy consoles and all but I just find it easier to lay back and get out my DSi or one of my various Game Boys for some awesome Handheld gaming fun.

Top 5 games of all time.
5. Kirbys Canvas Curse (DS)
4. The Legend of Zelda: Links Awakening (GB)
3. The Legend of Zelda: Majoras Mask (N64)
2. Tetrisphere (N64)
1. Secret of Mana (SNES)
