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.

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



HandheldGuru97 commented on The Pokémon Trading Card Game Is Coming To iP...:

Soooooooooooooooo is this Nintendo is DOOOOOOOOMED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Or is Nintendo "Saved"...nope clearly Nintendo is forever doomed :P all those great consoles (Gameboy Advance, SNES, DS, Gameboy, Gamecube) and games (Super Mario Bros, SMB3, Super Mario World, LoZ ALttP, LoZ OoT, SM64, Galaxy 1 and 2, Pokemon Silver and Gold, Super Metroid, Earthbound, Metroid Prime, LoZ WW, and on and on!!!!!!!!!) Didn't happen :P :P :P
(In all seriousness this isn't that big of a deal folks! Pokemon been on IOS before this isn't the end of Pokemon or Nintendo... so don't go OMG WORLDS ENDING!!!!!!!!)



HandheldGuru97 commented on The Hyrule Warriors Artbook Catches The Eye Wi...:

Wow really people, really, really??? Is this really happening in 2014? A genderswapped Link would freshen up and add dare I say a new twist to the classic Zelda formula. Would playing as a female Link really change the core gameplay??? NO! And is what is most important not whether or not you're playing as a boy or a girl, good gameplay. A female or male or somewhere in between Link wouldn't and shouldn't kill The Legend of Zelda series.



HandheldGuru97 commented on Feature: Ten Must Play Titles on the Game Boy:

Some many, many great games on the Game Boy. I went for Pokémon, but Tetris, Link's Awakening (DX), 6 Golden Coins and Donkey Kong are all right up there for me at least. Quite honestly its pretty hard to not find something you'll love on the Gray Brick (or the Pocket or even the Color!)



HandheldGuru97 commented on WayForward Bringing GBC Classic Xtreme Sports ...:

Awesome! I just picked this cart up a few days actually, but I might double dip just to have a manual :P So far from what I've played it is really, really fun. Control is a bit wonky and I keep forgetting how control the games....XD Love graphics, music is okay for what it is though it works. Definitely gives off a Xtreme late 90's early 00's vibe. I recommend it highly!



HandheldGuru97 commented on The Game Boy is 25 Years Old in North America:

I for one came onto the Game Boy scene far, far later than most. I am only 16 so naturally I was born right around the end of the Original's lifespan and just before the Pokémon cult of the late 1990's began :P My first handheld seven years later in 2004 was the Gameboy Advance SP. I got into collecting handhelds little over four years ago with...the Gameboy Micro. I got the Color and Original within a month of each other in fall of 2011(october and November respectfully, yes the Color came first) and the rest they say is, well, history. Today I own north of 18+ handhelds and my Gameboy Original/Color game collection is by far the largest retro handheld game collection I have (in close-ish 2nd in the Advance and a distant 3rd is my Neo Geo Pocket Color or Atari Lynx...) So many brilliant and fun games, I will admit I seldom play on the Original, but since getting a and white has been in baby! The Color is still my favorite of all the 'Boys, but the Original definitely has its place :) Happy birthday Game Boy! Here is to another 25 years of pea green handheld gaming!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



HandheldGuru97 commented on The Fantasy Life Adventure Begins in Europe on...:
