I've got one hell of a backlog right now, so this might have to wait. Still this looks utterly charming and fun to play, little disappointed about the controls, but Jools hasn't disappointed me yet, I'll gladly support him with a purchase of this, later ;)



HandheldGuru97 commented on Review: Cubic Ninja (3DS):

Found a copy of Cubic Ninja (new) for $10 at a local supermarket. I for one do not believe in homebrew or hacking, but considering this game now has a little bit of interesting history, I figured what the hell??? I'll open it and give it a proper play through, looks interesting enough and my expectations aren't to high so maybe I'll be surprised.



HandheldGuru97 commented on Atlus Confirms Etrian Mystery Dungeon for Spri...:

YUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm super duper hyped for this one, heck even more than V! Looks very fun, only ever played the Pokémon Mystery Dungeons which I'm not going to lie, I loved, glad to have another franchise to try MD-ified!



HandheldGuru97 commented on Review: Flapp & Zegeta (Wii U eShop):

I will never ever, ever understand the appeal of Flappy Bird...never. Shudders thank the goodness that you guys didn't have to pay for this. The review (which being so short) I read through...I am so sorry. Not a game I would ever buy (even for a penny!), but thank you guys for sparing others who might...



HandheldGuru97 commented on Hardware Classics: The Sega Genesis Nomad:

Ah Ha!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The Nomad...what kind of HandheldGuru would I be without one!??!?!!??! I scored HUGE on a Nomad a few months ago at local game store...$60!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Naturally no battery pak and that was a bloody expensive sucker to get...but wow what a handheld! A superb library, screen (yes even the original one!) is much better than the Gear a shame it didn't sell, but it was doomed from the start. It is a very, very niche handheld mostly for Sega Collectors or Handheld Collectors...but if you fall into either group, you better get a Nomad!



HandheldGuru97 commented on Nintendo Returns to Profit as Wii U Sales Show...:

Well at the very least this an improvement. I do hope the Wii U hits 15-20 million units by the end of its life. Damn shame no one cared about it now...can't wait for it to end up like the Gamecube and have almost insane cult following :) I'm disappointed 3DS sales have bottomed out too, hope that the New 3DS will help, which it should.
Oh also @IceClimbers if you count the Virtual Boy (as handheld or console, personally I think its a handheld :P) the Wii U and 3DS are far past the under 1 million club the VB is in. And if I am remembering correctly if you split the Gameboy Color off from the Black and White GB that would sit around 46ish million units sold. While its unlikely the 3DS will outsell say the Gameboy Advance line at this point its likely we could see the 3DS end up around 65 million+, which isn't to bad in this Smartphone era we live in
Gotta remember folks times are a changin'



HandheldGuru97 commented on Project CARS Delayed to March 2015 on PS4 and ...:

There must be something seriously wrong with this game if they keep delaying it. Maybe the don't want a repeat of what happened with Driveclub??? Forza scored very high, so that will probably shift good numbers this holiday season. Best case scenario Wii U gets it March like everyone else, worst case scenario we don't get it at all or they delay it even more and wonder why it didn't sell...(can this generation be over already???)



HandheldGuru97 commented on Hardware Review: The New Nintendo 3DS Is The B...:

Can't freaking wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love Nintendo handhelds, this will likely be the last handheld I get before I head off to college in 2016. With the library the 3DS has so far, I might just wait out for a few years before jumping on the Nintendo 4DS-Boy ;)



HandheldGuru97 commented on Mega Video Game Fan Aaron "NintendoTwizer" Nor...:

Thought those shelves looked familiar!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Damn thats a real shame he is selling it all off :( best of luck to him, if this auction stays quiet I might try and make an offer on at least the shelves :P maybe a few games too...:P :P Really impressive collection!



HandheldGuru97 commented on Feature: Kickstarter's Wii U and 3DS Campaigns...:

@MojoBones Impact Winter looks stunning, thats really all I can say. Really, really hope it succeeds, heck if its hitting Mac for sure (which it appears it is), I might very well contribute because I want to play it soooooo bad! Definitely a change of pace from Siesta Fiesta!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Anyway I'm really liking it from what I've seen so far, good luck guys!!!!!!!!!!!!



HandheldGuru97 commented on Review: Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS (3DS):

I shall not lie, ever since the 3DS version was announced I was skeptical, how would Smash Bros work on the 3DS???? I can safely say after playing the demo and seeing and reading all these reviews that yes Smash can work on a handheld. I am gamer who tends to stick to handhelds (obviously...:P), but I will get the U version too, but I hate say it...the 3DS one has my attention wrapped up! Now back to the demo to make this week pass faster...



HandheldGuru97 commented on Review: 10-in-1: Arcade Collection (3DS eShop):

Just grabbed this for 99 cents (plus tax it was about $1.10 :P) I've had my eye on this little game for a while...I am a complete sucker when it comes to video game compilations, and I am glad I got this! There are some great games (notably being the Tangled Space, Black Nightmares and Gem Breaker), some good ones, (Special Delivery, Ninja Monkey, Ghost Cage and Box Logic) there are the duds which I won't name, but over all a 6/10 or as I'd give it a 7/10 is a prefect score for this game. Its on sale until November 2nd 2014 and I hope I'll convince some to give this a try. If you, like me, enjoy retro spoof compilations (IE Retro Game Challenge) and nice pickup and play games, you probably will fall in love with this little gem. :)



HandheldGuru97 commented on Review: Giana Sisters DS (DS):

I'm not a fan of commenting on older reviews, but man this game is awesome!!!!!!!!!!!! I found it a local record that is closing down, got the US version for new $13!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Of course I opened it, but US release so :P Anyway, while it is easy it is very, very fun. Love the art style and the soundtrack. If you find this little sucker for dirt cheap, buy it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



HandheldGuru97 commented on Review: Fantasy Life (3DS):

Whoop!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Can't wait for Fantasy Life. I still have the Nintendo Power (:'() volume with Fantasy Life DS screens!!!!!!!!!! Ah its been nearly five years since then, sounds like the long wait has definitely been worth it! Got my preorder down and Smash will keep me more than happy until October 24.



HandheldGuru97 commented on Demo for Super Smash Bros. 3DS Announced for N...:

Wowza!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Tons of peoples want it, alrighty I am downloading my code now. Then I will put the other 3 on here ONE AT A TIME. As much as I do love my money I don't want a dime for these codes. Nintendo wanted these to be shared and they shall be. Those who asked me (@Tonnie_gAmEr25 @Jake_homs and @Abell583) Be waiting as soon as you respond I can put it up on here or through Email which ever you prefer!!!! ^_^



HandheldGuru97 commented on Preview: Fantasy Life is Waiting to Become Par...:

Hyping intensives!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Still remember reading Nintendo Power and seeing this game get announced for the DS! Been nearly five years, by the looks of the interwebz...wowza. Got my preorder down and I can't wait! Goodbye real life all over again...:P



HandheldGuru97 commented on Poll: Tell Us What You Think of the New Ninten...:

I am loving what Nintendo has shown us thus far! As much as I love my little XL I'll probably being grabbing one of the New Standard 3DS, I have fallen in love with black one (the face buttons stand out yet still retain a classy Nintendo look). And the customizable is that only at 4%!??!??!!??!!?!??!??!?!?!??!?!??! Easily the one reason swaying me away from the XL. Either way I can't wait, going to be good.



HandheldGuru97 commented on Talking Point: Nintendo Brings Life to the 3DS...:

I'll repeating a lot from my other post, but man, I haven't been this hyped for a new handheld for years! The original was great and all and I wasn't too pleased when Nintendo dropped the price or announced the XL. As my picture shows :P I did end up getting an XL about 6 months post launch and fell in love with it. 2DS, eh didn't care, but I got one for $35 (with Pokemon Y!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) from my brother so huzzah. This though.... this handheld looks AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Two models to choose from day 1!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Faceplates!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Gah! The hype is real! As I said before Nintendo and their stopgap handhelds (GBC and DSi) are some of my favorite handhelds OF ALL TIME! I think we should look at this revision more like the GBC then the DSi....however I doubt (we are still so early in this development) beyond Xenoblade that the New 3DS will get many, good big name exclusives. So everyone keep your pants on! I will be getting this (and trading in that 2DS) and Xenoblade, this will be a nice holdover till the 4DS-Boy :D



HandheldGuru97 commented on Xenoblade Chronicles Coming to 3DS in Japan:

Well, well...I likely will never get or play the Wii version simply because I prefer handheld gaming, I can see the graphics have been scaled down, but I want to play Xenoblade so I will be getting this and one of the New 3DSes



HandheldGuru97 commented on Nintendo Shows Off 38 "Kisekae Plate" Changeab...:

My God its the Gameboy Micro 2.0!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love my little GBM, but the faceplates are the hardest thing to find for it, if this wasn't a feature I'd go right to the New XL, but this changes...everything. :P



HandheldGuru97 commented on New Nintendo 3DS Models Announced:

Ha! To think I thought old Ninty would get through the year without announcing a new 3DS boy oh boy I was wrong! Still...this (from what I know about the Gameboy and DS lifespans) is the first time Nintendo has released 4(!!!!!) (Really 5!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) handhelds in one handhelds lifespan very odd, but the times are a changin...Well I ain't gonna lie Nintendo and stopgap handhelds tend to be phenomenal (GBC and DSi come to mind) so I will be getting one. Especially considering that Xenoblade is only playable on that :P Now the real question is I went from launch day model to XL...but to go small again or stay big???? Eh I got a few months...but those faceplates though... :D
