Handmade Nintendo controller coin purse review

When I saw mention of a handmade Nintendo controller-ish coin purse at DS Fanboy, I knew I had to have one. I went to Lindsey Porter’s storefront on Etsy. Etsy specializes in handmade stuffs, so if you’re looking for something unique or small-run, check them out. Pictures and the rest of the write-up are behind […]

Chore gaming

Until last year, I played massively multiplayer online role playing games for the better part of six years, starting with EverQuest during its launch in 1999. I spent the bulk of my time in Dark Age of Camelot and World of Warcraft. I also played quite a few other MMOs, including Shadowbane, City of Heroes, […]

Pelican 1060 hardcase review

Pelican 1060 hardcase review

Over a year ago, one of my first Gibberish articles was about the S3 hardcase for the Sony PSP. The S3 hardcase is a rebadged Pelican with an insert specially designed for Sony’s portable gaming/media platform. Although the PSP hasn’t gotten much use in the last ten months or more, the S3 case still impresses […]

EZ Flash IV Lite vs SuperCard Lite

EZ Flash IV Lite vs SuperCard Lite

Thanks to my own ignorance about Nintendo DS Lite flash cart options, I wound up buying two complete sets of PassMe/Flash cart devices. Luckily I’ve made use of the second set with Lady Jaye’s newly acquired pink NDSL. I’m glad I kept the unit instead of selling it, because it’s allowed me to compare both […]

Monopoly on the Nintendo DS

It is well known amongst my meatspace friends that I love Monopoly. My friend Stilts and I play almost every time we see each other. When I saw that Monopoly was featured as one of the games in the aptly titled (but wordy) Monopoly – Boggle – Yahtzee – Battleship cartridge for the Nintendo DS, […]

HORI Nintendo DS retractable stylus review

The Nintendo DS Lite is 39 percent smaller and 21 percent lighter than the original Nintendo DS Phat. While I’ve enjoyed the smaller form factor of the NDSL quite a bit over its predecessor, there is one small problem: the stylus used for the bottom touch screen is, well, too small.

The Guns … They've … Stopped

My incident with modchipman.com caught the attention of Ben “Stasis7” Kuchera, a writer for Ars Technica. Ben sided with me, and posted his feelings on Opposable Thumbs, Ars’s gaming column. I didn’t know that the article had been published until I updated my site statistics for the day. The column was out for a few […]

Hori Nintendo DS Screen Protector: Initial Impressions

Hori Nintendo DS Screen Protector: Initial Impressions

The bottom screen of the Nintendo DS is touch-sensitive. I often use my finger on the screen, but some games require a more precise touch from the stylus. I’m nervous that the plastic tip of the stylus will result in a scratch or an imprint, especially during games like Starfox Command, which requires you to […]
