Over the summer it has become more and more apparent that I need to make something of my love of Videogames. I want to do something with it. Reviews or illustration or something. For the moment Sonic Boom is perfect for that at this stage. So I shall have to say once more.
This isn't dead yet
It may not be as regular as it was originally planned (once a week) but it will be happening.
I would love to hear what you guys would like to see reviewed, or even what your playing currently. Theres an anonymous comment section below if you feel you need it, and the E-Mail address is: email@example.com

The time came, and slavering just a little, I held the shiney little gadget in my hands, one of those true 'im not worthy' moments.
However, this feeling soon past, almost bitter sweet. Now its essential you don't get me wrong, I love Nintendo, im not one of these 'gamers' who seem to disreguard them as a cartoony waste of time. But honestly, it left me feeling, nay hoping that this early version wouldn't reflect the final console too much.
The 3D effect works but not as well as they are advertising it. Thats not to say it doesn't work at all, it just needs tinkering. The 3D slider (The slider that adjusts the depth of vision) rather than adjusting the depth, is more of a scanner, for each individual player. For me personally it was blurry at full depth, but a little tinkering got it perfect for me.
The game I demo'd was very much that, a demo. More of a simple toy than a game (I didnt catch the name, but I think it was inbuilt) it involved taking a 3D picture of your own face and then using the Camera and physically moving the 3DS around the room to shoot incoming avatars taken from aformentioned photos. Fun? yes, but its not as if it hasnt been done before.
When the 3DS was announced I very nearly needed new trousers, now that ive had time to reflect, other than the 3D the biggest draw to the console for me was the games. Lets reflect on some of the launch games:
Super Street Fighter 4
Metal Gear Solid 3
Resident Evil: The Mecenaries
Nintendogs & Cats
Now none of these sound bad, I mean heck, I absolutley love most of these games, but they are rehashed or sequels just in 3D. Must I really spend £229 on a new console to play games that already exist?
In conclusion, the console really looks the part but im not as overstruck now that ive played it as I was back when I saw its announcement. The original DS blew me away to the point where when March 11th 2005 rolled by, I bought one, the day it came out. Nintendo havent won me over this time.
