Nintendo!

So my Logitech Driving Force Pro steering wheel finally arrived in the mail earlier this week. I gotta say, it really makes GT4 that much more fun to play. In fact, i’d say it’s the only way to play. Beats playing with the Dual Shock. The wheel makes everything that much more precise. I love it. Here’s how i have it set up.

Okay i’m lying. That’s not really my set up. I don’t have that big of a TV. I actually have my steering wheel clamped to my computer desk with a 14 inch TV right in front of it. Lame.

So i said that i was gonna try to sell off my Nintendo DS to recoup the $150 price tag of the GT4/steering wheel bundle but with the recent news of how Nintendo is bringing the DS online later this year, i’m not so sure i wanna get rid of my DS anymore. After watching Nintendo President Satoru Iwata give the keynote presentation at the 2005 GDC, i’m officially hyped for the DS’s future. Animal Crossing, Electroplankton and Nintendogs look awesome. Much more impressive than anything i’ve seen for the PSP. And what’s up with the PSP anyway? There’s literally nothing on there that i can’t already play on the PS2. I mean, come on now. Ridge Racer? WipeOut? Twisted Metal? It’s like 1995 all over again! PSP? PSOFSHIT more like.

But seriously, just watch part 6 of the keynote presentation and tell me that’s not exciting stuff. You won’t find that kind of videogame experience on the PSP. Granted, the DS is kind of slow going right now with it’s less than stellar launch title lineup but with the aforementioned games on the way, online multiplayer capabilities and MARIO KART on the way (hopefully online enabled!), things are definitely looking up for the DS. It’s gonna be good times.

Go watch part 6 of the keynote presentation for demonstrations of Nintendogs and Electroplankton. Heck, go watch the whole thing. It’s worth it.

Oh and yeah, Nintendo’s also releasing this little game called The Legend Of Zelda this year. I never bought Wind Waker but this new Zelda looks to be THE game to get for the Gamecube this year. Plus, it’s got KITTIES in it!!! KITTIES!!!! Aww i love kitties. They should make Nintendocats for the DS. I’d buy that for a dollar.

  1. First post.
    I rule.

    I hate the gamecube.
    And that makes me suspicious of anything Nintendo does anymore. 🙁

    In this PSP WiFi test, Ridge Racers for PSP was switched into Battery mode at 2:10PM, and was heard and seen to be dead later in the evening at 4:56PM…

  7. Nice to see Zelda going back to the Ocarina style link. Cell shaded guys are just, well, BORING.

  9. My roommate has a Gamecube, but he never lets me use it, only when we do multiplayer games like Double Dash. I never want to use it anyway because I hate the controller and the games. But still, he’d better let me play it when he picks up LOZ. ^_^

    I never really have had a portable gaming system, except for my vintage rusty, black and white Game Boy that I haven’t used in light years. DS sounds like it has a good game lineup, I’ll be checking it out.

  21. No no no …….. Smash is never sarcastic! I help him cause he suffers from senile dimenchia. I like to look after parishoners – it’s a bit like ‘care in the community’

  22. I wouldn’t go spending all your money just yet. I assume you also saw the xbox 2 stuff?

  23. Took me entirely too long to find this site. Back to killing twenty minutes of each day of my life on celebrities nipple slips and camel toe. Glad you started this site up. Been reading for years and I missed it. Hopefully that isn’t considered gay shit. It’s not like I put a big, black cock in my butt or anything.

  25. PSP>DS

    I’d like to see the DS double as a Ninja Disc thrower. It doesn’t, so PSP wins. And the PSP plays MP3’s.
