Wowza can't believe that its been 25 years, I still have the Nintendo Power Magazine :( covering the 20th anniversary!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :O I wasn't born until '97, but my 1st handheld was the Game Boy Advance SP (10 years ago and still kicking). As I've become a majority handheld gamer and collector I've picked up the Classic, Color, and Micro and I'm planning on getting at the very least a Pocket and Advance Classic (a Light would be nice but dat price tho...) Love what Nintendo has done with the 3DS they've proven a great strength is their handhelds. I've played many of the other companies competitors units and only two (the Neo Geo Pocket Color and Atari Lynx) both are held back only because of poor libraries. Way to go Nintendo hope we'll be celebrating with 50th anniversary with the Nintendo 6DS-Boy HDXX in 4DSessssss ;)

Poor Cult County....hope that Renegade Kid had enough assets put into the early build of the 3DS game to release it, at the very least, on the 3DS eShop. Also thanks you guys for putting these together, nice to see what's to come in the near future!



HandheldGuru97 commented on Vita Overtakes 3DS in Tough Week for Japanese ...:

I'm not surprised by this actually. The 3DS has sold 15 MILLION systems in Japan alone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thus many people are finding the Vita to be an attractive alternative especially now in between major 3DS release. I love how people are writing the 3DS off based on ONE week yes one week and it under sells a handheld with a install base that will never catch up (for better or worse) to the 3DS. Sheesh its one week, and I think at this point this should be normal (very much like the late DS v. PSP days in Japan)



HandheldGuru97 commented on First Impressions: Tomodachi Life:

Sounds like this will be right up my alley. Love how it looks sounds and from videos I've seen plays. Glad to see that you guys are liking it!!!!!!! So now for a few simple questions, what's your favorite thing about the game???? And what is your least favorite aspect of the game??? Just curious to see how it's playing out.



HandheldGuru97 commented on Nintendo Provides Some Context to 2013's Tomod...:

I do not want to get into a debate like many of the users above me have already, please allow me to state my views here. Thank you. ;)
As someone who suffers gender dysphoria (transgender MtF if you need to know, pre everything sadly :( ) I myself personally could care less about my sexual orientation I would rather figure out my gender first, yet it saddens me though to see Nintendo not go out on a limb and include this feature as more than a glitch, but a real feature (for male and female Mii's too). It also...I don't sickens and saddens me as well to see how many people are so hell bent on believing its a sin to be part of the LGBTQ community (if you're reading this long wall of text I may even lose some of the few friends I have on this site because I'm Trans*), but seeing that all this hate...Nintendo doesn't need bad press. There would be parents burning their kids Wii U's, Wii's, 3DSes in the streets (worse case scenario) if this feature was in the game. Protests outside Nintendo, hate mail, hell hateful stories on big name game sites (not naming names). Nintendo can't afford bad press now, but one day maybe not this year but within the next 10 years or so...Tomodachi Life HDS could have this feature. I'd like that. :)
Thanks to anyone who read this wall of text!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh my God this is actually happening!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This looks fantastically bizarre and nuts, I must have it! Glad to see Nintendo took the risk to bring this game over and to keep part of the name at that! Tomodachi Life indeed.....June 6th can't come soon enough!!!!!



HandheldGuru97 commented on Video: Atlus Serves Up an Early Look at Person...:

Looking mighty fine Atlus, looking fine. This like many others will be (probably) be my 1st Persona game. I have a Vita though and a RPG is just what the doc has ordered to pull me away from my 3DS so I may get P4G 1st, but who knows??? Got until the fall to figure it out



HandheldGuru97 commented on Review: Rusty's Real Deal Baseball (3DS eShop):

Awesome game, need to put some funds in to pick up a few games, but I loved the demo. I really hope Rusty shows up again (maybe in HD??? 0_0) He is a fantastic character, he's got the NIntendo charm and a little bit of a dark back story to soften the "kiddie image ;)



HandheldGuru97 commented on Super Smash Bros. Direct Will Bring the Hype o...:

Wowza....!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm expecting a couple oldcomers a few newcomers as well, so video footage of both games and lastly a rough release time frame (don't want to get too excited and believe that they will really relieve the final date)



HandheldGuru97 commented on 3DS Enjoys a Major Hardware Boost in Japan as ...:

Nice, nice!!!!!! Good to see increases all around, I'm not worried about the PS4...yet Japan is handheld land even though the PS3 has done very well, so its early still. Even happier to see the Wii U bump, now if could stay there for a bit...

JUST CONFIRM THE DAMN GAME ALREADY DAMNIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I. Need. This. In My. Life. NOW NINTENDO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



HandheldGuru97 commented on Hardware Classics: SNK Neo Geo Pocket Color:

Figures I change my profile picture that was a Neo Geo Pocket the day before an article like this comes out :P. Anyway....I LOVE THE NEO GEO POCKET COLOR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Kay thats out of the way I'll be more civil. What an amazing handheld. Easily one of the most criminally underappreciated handhelds of not only the 20th century, but of the whole existence of handhelds!!!!!!!!!!!! There are some shortcomings of course most notably is the fairly weak library and (as I've just noticed thank you NLife) game prices are rising (anyone care to tell me what the hell happened to Neo Turf Masters??????? I can't find it under $20! :o Still an absolutely fantastic little machine I would love to see a fraction of the games on the 3DS eShop. Hey @NinLife think that the next most underappreciated handheld the great Atari Lynx could grab a spot light next???? ;)



HandheldGuru97 commented on Review: Yoshi's New Island (3DS):

I'm disappointed, but I'm glad I waited for reviews. Looks like I'll wait a year or so, wait for it to hit $20ish (maybe 25) and pick it up and judge it then. Even so I still like that art style :P must be just me



HandheldGuru97 commented on Latest PS4 Sales Figures Take it Past Wii U Li...:

I must admit that is very impressive!!!!!!!!!! I can't believe how much this console has sold in such a short amount of time especially with a ridiculously constricted supply and (no offense this is normal and should be for at least the 1st year) not so decent game library with very very few exclusives (not to mention no backwards compatibility yet). I might have to pick one up once the supply gets better and the hype dies off
