How my Nintendo DS helped us change a tire

It was 3 am this morning, and we were at a friend’s house. Some people were hungry, so three of us decided to go drive over to a fast food restaurant. I just went along for the ride. Well, this quick trip to get food resulted in some wrong turns, and getting pulled over for…

Rhythm Tengoku guides! (and: moving!)

Sorry this took so long! I’ve been working on this for a while, and hoped to have it up earlier. I did not write this guide (more info here), but I added screenshots and other images, as well as formatted the whole thing. I think it turned out really great, one of the best guides…

Police brutality in “Bully”

I’m totally addicted to Bully. In fact, I’m 35 hours into Okami, and stopped playing it because I got bored (it’s great, but just won’t end!). I can’t stop playing Bully. Now I remember why I was so hooked on GTA III. You’re always being rewarded for everything you do, and if you’re ever bored,…

A counterfeit GBA ring operating out of my car hole! Er, ebay!

I realize I’m a bit late to the party here, as this has been written about many times before on the net, and even Nintendo has their own site about it. Unfortunately, I never saw any of those sites until after I got burned. I frequently scour ebay for good deals on games, particularly handhelds. One such good deal was a used copy of “The Legend of Zelda: The Minish Cap” for a crazy-low Buy-It-Now price of about $14 including shipping, when the stores sell it used for $27! I’ve gotten a lot of DS games for really cheap, and they’re all in great condition complete with box/manual, so I thought it was just another good find. I grabbed it right away, being totally unaware that there are tons of GBA scammers out there…
