Nearly 3 months have passed since my last post and a lot has happened...most of it not so good. I think that for the time being I'll just stick to the video game stuff.

The biggest news involves my smallest system, the DS. I have started to use "a device" that is allowing me "access" to games in "a different manner". Is it a good thing? Too soon to tell.

I'm getting overwhelmed with the quantity of games I have and frustrated with the outcome that I never seem to be playing the same game long enough to get to some conclusion, be it completion, stagnation or boredom. Nearly every game starts with a tutorial and contains some measure of specialized controls. If I don't continue with the same game, I spend time just learning new games (tutorials can be tedious) and then can't remember control schemes when I do get the opportunity to get back to old games. But I can't overlook the fact that some games get boring on their own, just repeating the same game mechanic over and over in order to draw out the play time for a selling bullet point.

Going to post this and start a new thread.
