This Week in Gaming

Since I am now being paid to be a gamer and sell games, I've decided to start a weekly gaming column here on Scottdot, in an honest effort to keep my writing topics diverse and appealing to a wider audience. Let me know what you think! A few days ago I had a dream about a Sony PSP. Someone gave it to me and I was playing Pac-man in a subway somewhere. When I woke up, I found myself really wanting a PSP like never before! At the same time, being the Nintendo fanboy that I am, I am also tempted to buy a Nintendo DS and/or Gameboy Micro. Post your thoughts in the Comments section to try and sway my decision one way or another. PSP? DS? Both? Also feel free to send me some cash donations. Meanwhile, on the GameCube (generously lended to me by G.M.P.), I picked up Harvest Moon earlier in the week, played it for an hour, and determined it to be boring. I should have given it more time, but I was impatient and really wanted to get back to my love of Animal Crossing, which I picked up from the store after returning Harvest Moon. I've spent the day running errands for the animals in my new town of Dingle, and I've planted more than a dozen apple trees as well. Things should be very exciting in Dingle in the next few days. Now, while I'm not an Xbox fan, I was quite excited last night when I went back to the store (this time to pick up Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door) to see our new Xbox 360 kiosk in all its glory. Someone was playing the King Kong demo when Kristen and I arrived, to which I said "AWE!" much like a pre-pubecent eleven year old! After a few minutes, I got my turn to play the Call of Duty 2 demo. While it was fun, I was not nearly as impressed as I was expecting I would have been. Where's my Nintendo Revolution when I need it?

Hey Scott, yeah, if i'm to sway your opinion on whether to get a PSP or a DS, i would have to go with the PSP, and for a reason your going to like. I have a friend who works at EB World and he has a PSP. It's one of the original PSP's and he has every single NES and Super Nintendo game ever made on there, and that is not an exaggeration! Be careful if you do go with this because the newer PSP's or the upgraded PSP's cannot do this, there is a way to downgrade your PSP, but it might freeze it up permanently. So yeah, take it easy man!!!
