Especially since this was the beginning of our relationship.

Nintendo Dsi Is A Winner At E3 Expo And With This Video Game Novice


The third and final installment of a look at the best games in Q1 2009. Covered so far, Xbox 360 and PS3 then Wii and DS and to wrap it up lets look at PSP, PS2 and a few PC titles. While the PS2 is far from dead it is getting last rites while the PSP works to prove its relevance. There is hope for the PSP with some solid titles hitting shelves in addition to all the cross platform, scaled down titles out there, sports titles, etc. PC, this space has never been about PC titles but there area always a few worth a mention. Let’s get started in order to finish.

This famous intellectual game’s business mark has been revamped quite a few times.

But as more abilities/ races/ gear are released A) the new content has to be justified, aka equal or better than the current stuff B) more combinations of bonuses are possible.

Board games like Risk could make for an evening of fun, or card games such as Magic: The Gathering.

Finally we come to hardware and peripherals, where the shop really shines. Like Play N Trade, sifting through their collection yields some of the most odd and surprising finds you’re likely to come across. While I was there I saw stuff like a Yobo NES Light Gun, colored(and clear) Dreamcast controllers, AV cables and deluxe memory cards for various systems, a steering wheel for the N64, a paddle-like controller for the SNES and all sorts of other weird stuff(most new in box too). They also had a Genesis 2 unit, with a 32X add on for $40, some NES and Super Nintendo decks and even a few of those GN Twins that play both Sega Genesis and NES titles.

These are especially appealing to gamers as they can relate to a lot of the jokes and style of humor that is used. However, being a heavy gamer is not required to enjoy the videos. I’m a casual gamer at best and I still enjoy watching them from time to time. They do tend to be rather lengthy, but they can still be quite entertaining.
