Just brought a DS Lite

Did you know I spend roughly 2 hours a day commuting to work 4 days a week? While I was happy just listening to podcasts and such I felt now would be the perfect time to expand my gaming horizons and buy another DS, a DS Lite to be exsact.

I got one of these things orignaly when they first came out and did not think very much of it. There were not to many games out for it that suited me and my situation at the time but a lot of time has passed since the first time I owned a DS and I have noticed that there are plenty of games that would suite me down to the ground while on the bus, most of these being slower paced RPG's and of course the fantastic 42 in 1 all time classics.

So yeah I picked up the Nintendo DS in the awesome finger print collecting black edition which came complete with a game I really did not want and an acessory kit that contained sev
eral screen protectors and extra games cases, stylus' and a cleaning cloth, all for an extra five pounds, not bad!

I did also pick up a ton of pre-owned the games at the store as they were cheap enough. DS games I love buying second hand because they are durable unlike DVD's or Blueray's. It's pretty hard to mess up a DS cart. So yeah I brought my old fave
42 in 1 all time classics as well as Zelda: The Phantom Hour Glass, Dragon Quest V and Pokemon Perl. All of these games kick tremendous amounts of arse and because they are slow paced RPG's they will last me a long time to which is good considering I will be playing these for at least 2 hours a day heh.

There was one more game I brought but I had to use the magic of the Internet, or Ebay if you wish for me to be more specific. So yeah I ordered a brand new copy of Phantasy Star Zero which is supposed to be the true Sequal to Phantasy Star Online which orignaly made it's debut on the Dreamcast, a console I adore to this day.

So as I type this I have an brand new US copy of the game winging it's way towards me on guaranteed next day delivery so in theory I should be able to give you my impressions of the game by this weekend as i should be getting it tommorow although I am not sure if they deliver on Saturday, I bloody well hope so anyway!

So yeah I will be posting a little more now, I feel in the mood to blogg and update this thing more often so keep an eye out on this page.

What have I been doing lately?

Well as you may or may not have noticed I have not been very active for awhile. This is mainly because there is this thing called the "x-mas games rush" and lately I have been cought up in playing a lot of Tekken 6 and Forza 3 when I get a chance to play on my 360 or Uncharted 2 on the PS3.

With that said lately I have takento retro gaming a lot. I am currently playing Castlevania: Symphony of the Night on the PS1 and Serious Sam First and Second Encounter on the PC to get myself ready for the HD version which is comming out real soon.

Anyway once I get enough "me time" I shall do another review, I got a few idea's planed out. Not sure if I want to do that movie review or another game review yet, we shall see. Anyway I am off to play some Uncharted 2 so laters and have fun!
