DSi XL Coming to Japan this year, NA & Europe 2010

In Japan, Nintendo announced that another model of the DSi was being released there. The system is much bigger than the DSi, having 4 inch screens, and the size of the system has also gotten bigger, thus losing it's portability. Satoru Iwata says that this was made to combat the barrier that old people have against the DS with it's small screens.

New 3D Dot Game Heroes Trailer

This game just looks so awesome. Rumor has it that Atlus & Ignition are in a bidding war trying to get the game brought over here. Obviously it pays homage to tons of Classic games like Zelda, Megaman, Castlevania, etc. I mean the chickens attacking the character with the sword has been a Zelda staple for many years! I can't wait!

I got Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 2

I got the game yesterday afternoon thanks to my brother. He decided to buy me one last PS3 game that we could play together. I never thought I would own a Dynasty Warriors or Gundam videogame, now I own 2 in 1, lol. We played the first mission together, and it totally wasn't what I was expecting. I don't know if I should continue playing or wait until he comes home for Thanksgiving so we can play it together. Definitely a good game though!

Sorry for the drought...

Yeah, my brother came home on September 23rd (he's in the Air Force), so I've just been spending time with him. We actually didn't play that many games together sadly, and now he'll be leaving this Wednesday. I went out of town over the weekend to visit my grandma in Austin.

I did surprisingly play Donkey Kong: Jungle Climber for the DS. I forgot how damn hard that game can be sometimes. I was dying so much I got fed up with it. Then I started the Battle Frontier in Platinum and that was giving me trouble. I swear I think DS games are harder than Wii games, lol.
