BLOG – Club Nintendo May 2012

Well, it is the beginning of a new month and you know what that means.  Yup, a different set of download titles from Club Nintendo in exchange for Nintendo Coins.  Unfortunately, this month’s lot isn’t exactly what I would call the highest quality. All titles are available for 150 coins and one game is available …

BLOG – Club Nintendo, Praises and Criticisms

If you have not joined Club Nintendo, you should as Nintendo is basically going to give you stuff for free.  And free is good.  Especially when you get something with higher quality. Somewhat similar to Xbox Live Rewards, Club Nintendo rewards consumers for buying eligible Nintendo prodcuts: hardware, disc-based games, and downloadable titles on Wii, …

BLOG – GS Marks Down GBA Games Even More, 75%!

Towards the end of the last week I get a random email from Gamestop with something about a free game in the subject line.  To quickly sum up, Gamestop was giving away download codes for the PC game StoneLoops of Jurassica – just print out the UPC code, bring it to the store and a …

BLOG – Road Tripping

You know what is good about road trips?  Handheld gaming. Whenever I fly or go anywhere longer than a day, I usually take my DS or PSP with me.  I am excited because I am hoping to find an hour or two that I can play some backlog DS games that I picked up over …

BLOG – GBA Single-Pak Multiplayer Game List

Way back in 2004, I spent a ton of time compiling a list of GBA games that utilized multiplayer gaming via only one game cartridge.  Why did I do this?  Well, I am always willing to try unknown games and a multi-boot function was a cheap and rare way I could get friends to play …

BLOG – Where Have All the XBLA Games Gone? – PART 2, Doom Returns!

A while back, I wrote about missing XBLA games.  While I neglected to mention another Midway Games game, Paperboy, I left out the original Doom as I thought that was more common knowledge.  But thanks to the fine people at Bethesda, gamers can now play through the original trip through hell via the Xbox 360. …

BLOG – Cheapest Game Evar!

I am no stranger on finding cheap games. Sales, reward clubs, daily deals, clearance bins, coupons, specials… I make it my point to constantly scout for cheap games. Some might call this being cheap. But like Locke, I prefer the term “treasure hunter.” Now I have found cheap games before (see previous blog entries). However, …

BLOG – 6 New 3DS Games for $30!

For whatever reason, Bestbuy was selling 3DS games for $5 yesterday (12-22-11).  Call it a crazy one day sale.  Or even a typo.  But whatever the case was, they were selling Pilotwings Resort, Steel Diver, and Nintendogs + Cats French Bulldog version and Toy Poddle version for $5 each.  And just to be clear, these …

BLOG – Gamestop’s GC Game Sale

On Thursday December 15. 2011 Gamestop had a special holiday sale for Power Up Rewards members – 50% off Gamecube games.  This sale was just one of the daily specials they have going on this holiday season. I was probably one of the few to be excited about this promotion as it was my chance …
