New Nintendo 3ds xl with SIM data card?

No, there's no such thing as a new Nintendo 3ds xl with a SIM card. But, wouldn't it be great?

I know, would be weird if you wanna talk on a 3ds and use it like a phone. But, I find it a bit irritating if I can't access the Internet whenever I'm not at home using my wifi. I have extra data SIM card that I use for my wins tablet. So, would be cool if I could also use a data SIM card for the 3ds. Imagine, whats-apping or watching YouTube vids on the train or bus. 

The 3ds is kinda a great multimedia tool. I've just finished watching two episodes of the anime Nintendo upload for the system entitled: Attack in Titan and even though I could watch it on my laptop or my iPhone 6 plus, the experience wasn't so bad. 

That's why, maybe, I'm hoping that in the future version of the 3ds would include data SIM card availability. They'll need to improve the virtual keyboard though. I'm typing this blog on my iPhone 6 plus and if the 3ds have this kind of keyboard it will certainly make it better for typing and posting on social media sites. 

I bring my 3ds xl everyday to work and  like I said, I can't surf the web with it because there's no wifi around that I can tap to. Yeah, I know I could do that with my phone but, since I'm already on my 3ds why shouldn't I then?

Would it be hard for Nintendo to create all that I've said above and more? What's in store for the new 3ds? Better graphics? Better video and social media capabilities? Better camera? 

There're so many they can improve on and certainly, I'll be looking forward to a better multimedia experience on the 3ds. Until then...

Happy gaming!

New Nintendo 3ds xl - bought more games!

Went to buy more games in the afternoon today. Wish, I have more money. It already cost me around SGD $230 for the five games. 

Yeah, I know. Four of the games already been out for quite some time. Fossil fighters frontiers just came out days ago. 

Funny, not really sure what it's all about. I seldom buy any game without first doing a survey on it. Looks cool enough to warren an impulse purchased. ��

Oh. My nephew also bought a clear case for his ps vita which include a travel case too. Cost around SGD$30. 

Here's more pics of the game I bought. 

I already open it all and gonna try the games pretty much today. Loads of fun!

Happy gaming!

New Nintendo 3ds xl vs ps vita slim gameplay

Yo guys,

Check it out. My nephew just bought his ps vita slim and I took this video to show some gameplay on both the system. I think it's basically, down to the type of game you like. Nintendo, sure have some cool exclusive games and so does the ps vita too.

The control felt nice and I must say, it does have sharper image. I asked my nephew to download Zen pinball game for me on his system since I like the game and you could play it holding horizontally or vertically. Don't think you can do that on the 3ds.

It's like an iphone or samsung phone only it's ps vita!

I looked at some of the games on offer and they seems to have lots of new games on it. For some reason, we can't find any racing demo games. You could play by touching the screen or even the bottom part of the vita. I must say, I'm pretty impressed. I haven't really check out the vita since, I was aiming to buy a 3ds xl instead.

I think it's a good investment on his part and now, we can switch system to play more games!

Well, check out the quick video above. Showing, some gameplay of Freedom wars on the ps vita slim and sonic, all stars racing on the new nintendo 3ds xl. Enjoy!

Happy gaming!

New Nintendo 3ds xl - Fantasy life explore Reveria with my horse.

Hey guys,

Just a short video of me or rather my virtual me riding a horse to explore Reveria. It's kinda fun and actually, i had to rent the horse for 50 dosh i think. Fantasy Life is a great game and it's fun to play on the new nintendo 3ds xl.

So far, been around 2 weeks plus and I'm happy with my new nintendo 3ds xl. There's a few game on the nintendo eShop which i would like to check out but, I still can't find a way to purchased anything online because of the restrictive region base that nintendo adopt.

The new nintendo 3ds xl is great but if I can't buy some of the games I wanted online then, that's gonna be a big problem for me. Like i said, I prefer Apple and Google play apps store because of the vast software and games you can download without any restrictive region lock.

I heard that Nintendo, going to create or rather convert their games to mobile platform in the near future. I'm not sure if that even good news. Around 50 million people already have a 3ds and happy playing on that platform and instead of making it even better or at least dump the restrictive region lock they're jumping ship.

Open up your system, dump that stupid region lock and you'll see more people buying the 3ds system for better playing experience. Duhhh!

In any case, hope you enjoy the little video above.

Happy gaming!

Acer Aspire E1-572G - Amd Radeon R5 M240 Diablo gameplay

hey guys,

sooo...the other day, a guy asked me what other games can my acer aspire e1-572g with Amd Radeon r5 m240 play. To answer that, actually, i've already replied that it can basically play the latest game on medium high. Also, at the same time, I took a video of me playing diablo 3 on my acer.

I'm happy to say, it play pretty smooth. I bought the acer laptop around mid last year. Didn't really bought it specifically to play games. But, being able to play my fav games like Dirt 2 is a plus. I had a video of that on my channel.

I wasn't really sure how good Amd graphic cards are. Haven't bought or used any of their products before. I did my survey about my r5 m240 card though. It's almost the same as my gt555m on my alienware m14x.

I bought my m14x around SGD$3K, 3 years ago and my acer around SGD$1K. You can totally see the price difference. M14x are basically for portable gaming with better specs. I have loads of gameplay for my m14x at my youtube channel. Check it out!

For the moment, check out the video above.

Happy gaming!

New Nintendo 3ds xl - IronFall demo gameplay

Hey guys,

Check out my demo gameplay of IronFall on the 3ds xl. Once, you get the hang of the control it's pretty cool. I think, more shooter games should be put out on the 3ds. The c-stick work fine although, compare holding and playing using the xbox controller is much better.

I'm playing a campaign demo version of the game. Thinking of getting it but unlike the Google android store or Apple store, I'm having trouble trying to buy the game on the eShop. I have a U.S. version of the 3ds but, I'm not living in the U.S. Heck, I can't even go online without changing the region to Americas.

It's a shame because, there's couple of cheap games on the eShop that I would like to buy. That's why I think Nintendo are stupid in that respect they putting on region restrictions for the 3ds. I have bought more games online via steam and itunes then going to my local game shop. Although, it's because, my xbox 360 and ps3 died on me a few years back.

I'm not sure if I can actually buy an eCard (U.S. version) at my local shop though. I'm checking out if I can buy the eCard online (walmart etc.) and then buy the game at eShop via the nintendo eCard. Yeah, i know. So much trouble just to buy a bloody game. :p

Anyway, hope you guys like the video.

Happy gaming!

New Nintendo 3ds xl - Pokemon shuffle battle!

Hey guys,

Just a short video game play of the Free-to-play Pokemon shuffle. It's a cool game that you can download from Nintendo eShop and play for free on your 3ds. It's a matching game in essence but added a story and voila!

You only got chance to play for at least with 5 hearts. After that, you can either buy it or wait. Normally, I'll just play up to 5 heart. I kinda have short attention span so this work fine for me. The gameplay is really easy and pretty fun. Need a bit of strategy to win. So, think through before you make the match-up.

The one I'm playing is a special segment where you can win coins and also fight a stronger pokemon. It took me a couple of tries to win the battle. But, it was worth it. I didn't manage to catch it though. I'll get it..somehow.

Well then, hope you enjoy the video and don't forget to download the game on your 3ds if you haven't yet.

Happy gaming!

New Nintendo 3ds xl - what can you do beside gaming?

Yo guys,

What can you do with your New Nintendo 3ds xl?

Why you can also surf the net, do Facebook updates, tweets on twitter and and watch movies on Youtube!

Although, you can basically already do all of the above on your mobile phone and mostly better on the phone then on your 3ds but, it's still pretty cool you can do those things on your ds too.

My gripe from my last post is that, you can only do those things when you're on wifi. The 3ds don't have a sim card or data card support. It would be cool if you can actually whatsapp using the 3ds or skype with friends. The virtual keyboard have to be better in that aspect.

Heck, the ds doesn't even have bluetooth. Why would you want bluetooth on the ds? Well, for one, i can use a bluetooth speaker for better sound or bluetooth keyboard for better typing. I'm not sure if you'll want a mobile ds phone but it won't hurt right? Maybe, in the future nintendo?

If they decide to create a 3ds phone, their design have to be better and slimmer. Not as bulky as right now. Not sure, how they're gonna do that. If it can be fit nicely on my back or front pocket then it's slim enough. :p

Actually, the size of the new nintendo 3ds xl is almost the same as my iphone 6 plus. The iPhone 6 plus is of course slimmer. If someone actually design a game controller for the iPhone 6 plus that can be fixed on the phone it won't be that much thicker then the 3ds xl.

The new nintendo 3ds xl already have a good design with their gaming control and I'm sure most will agree with me when comparing gaming on mobile phone and a ds.

The 3ds really needs more apps and games on par with Google android store or Apple app store. Oh, they need more free stuff too!

Lets get one thing straight, if not for Apple apps store, apple product will be the same as the others smartphone out there. In fact, I used to hate having to buy and re-download games whenever i bought a new phone or lose it during re-formatting the phone. But, Apple really change that. Yay! for Apple!

Nintendo, eshop need to be better design and to grow bigger with more apps and games. The Apple store have grown sophisticated and been re-design a couple of time since the day, they created the iTunes. Unlike the eshop, I went to their website and I'm like, wtf? It's like I'm on a different planet. It's really awful!

Where's Facebook apps, where's whatsapp or even Yahoo email app? We're living in a social service era and Nintendo eShop doesn't have all that even after years of producing the ds!?

Nintendo ds can be better. The eShop can be better. Nintendo, should evolved just like Apple and Google android. I'm really looking forward to the future of the ds!

Happy gaming!

My New Nintendo 3ds xl Red version!

Hey guys, 

Last Feb Friday 13th, I collected my New Nintendo 3ds xl - red version. I also pre-ordered Monster hunter 4. Check out my un-boxing video above.

New Nintendo 3DS. XL package.

Pre-ordered Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate! Got it!

The next day, I went buy a couple more games like The Legend of Zelda Majora's mask and Mario kart 7. 

Haven't actually tried the game yet. Will soon!

Mario Kart 7. So much fun!

Oh yeah? Bought, a hori clear case for my 3ds. Also, bought a traveler case which I can put in 3 extra games cartridges. 

I think, this cost me around $19.

Ohhh, so shiny!

Wish, I could buy a bigger one with more space to put my game cartridges and that could even put in my charger. They didn't sell it at the local shop. I might shop around for it later on.

Like my amiibo? Haven't open it yet. It's too cool to be un-box!

So far, I really like my new Nintendo 3ds xl. It's actually my first time buying a Nintendo products. Wanted to get a 2 ds but didn't get around to buying it. My nephew told me to buy a psp vista instead, since it's already out. I heard about the new 3ds last year and decided to get it. 

Boy, it was a long freaking wait. Finally, got it though and it's really a great gaming hand held console. I do have a few gripes though. 

For one thing, you have to open its back to insert your mini sd card. 

Granted, I didn't feel the need to keep taking out my sd card for anything. But, it was irritating nonetheless. I was afraid I could have scratch the shiny back plate. It's brand new for God sake!

If you're thinking of upgrading or buy a new battery, yes you can. Remember, you'll need a small screw driver handy. :p

The 3d is pretty awesome but somehow my camera on the 3ds keeps giving me error. But, I can still chose to play 3d or just turn it off. Maybe, I'm new to 3d gaming but I don't feel the need to turn it on all the time. Especially, when I prefer taking off my specs when playing. Either way, it won't matter as it's still fun playing with the hand held console. 

The control felt a little cramp even though with my small hands (or maybe my hands that's small). I got a bit of numbness problem when holding things for long time. Other then that, the control is good and responsive. The small nub above the x button felt 'funny'. It doesn't feel as good as an xbox controller for the pc or the xbox. But, it's not really a problem for me. At least it's better trying to play some games on my iphone.

I like the Nintendo e shop where you can download the latest new games, games demo and even background wallpapers. 

But, you can't compare it with Apple apps store or even Google Play android store. I can't find some of my favorite games or apps on the eshop. There are a few but Nintendo need to open up their store to these devolopers. With, better control options then an iphone or android phone, the 3ds should be a better gaming platform.

Have I told you, you need to buy a charger? For a new customer, I'm really irritated when the shop owner asked me which kind of charger I NEED to buy. An original $29 Nintendo charger or a third party $15 one. Of course, I bought the original Nintendo. 

In spite of that, I like the fact I can browse through my Facebook to check up on latest updates etc. 

Watching youtube movies on the 3ds xl anyone? Too bad, you can only surf or watch youtube using wifi.:(

Lo and behold! I can even watch YouTube on my 3ds! 

I think, you can't do that on the 'old' 3ds. But, don't expect browsing through your Facebook and YouTube to be like say, doing it on your iPhone. The graphics and sound are much better on my iPhone 6 plus. Plus, you can only surf if you're on wifi on the 3ds. That totally suckz!

Overall, if you still have these (picture of DSi) , then an upgrade is on the card. You can do much more on the new Nintendo 3ds xl. Other then that, maybe one day, Nintendo will improve on the system. 

On my wish list is:

1. More games like on the Apple apps store. 
2. Better sound system. I felt the need to buy a speaker to watch YouTube movie. 
3. Be able to download and watch my movies without having to reformat the file. 
4. Better resolution and sharper image for reading on the 3ds. 
5. I hope YouTube and Facebook gonna improve on their software updates. Oh yeah, what about Twitter, Instagram or even Skype? Is it coming to the 3ds?

Don't get me wrong. The new Nintendo 3ds design right now is great for gaming. That's why, I hope they improve more on it like including Bluetooth and SIM card slot for using data to surf and downloads. 

I guess, that's all for now. I'm gonna go enjoy playing games on my 3ds. 

Happy gaming!!

My iPhone 6 plus - icarer iphone 6 plus leather case

Hey guys,

Bought a new leather case for my iPhone 6 plus. Saw it at a local shop and the bright orange color really stick to me. It feels nice and smooth. Maybe, too smooth and a bit slippery. It's really beautiful, well, to me at least.

Front view of the case. 

Back view of the case. 

The box packaging. 

The inside of the case. 

Have I told you how I love the freaking bright orange color?

Easy access to power button on the side. 

Cut out on the bottom side for audio and charging. 

Take a look at the quick video. Been watching videos on iphone 6 plus case and haven't really heard of 'Icarer'. Not sure how you spell or pronounce it. 

Anyway, got it on spot and don't think I'll regret buying this. I thought of buying 'UAG' brand but, maybe some other day.

For now though, I'm happy with this. Cool!

Finally! Got my iphone 6 plus - re-unboxing

Finally! Got my iPhone 6 plus yesterday, 29th October after almost a week waiting. I was initially going to get the Gold colored iphone, 64gb but it's out of stock. So, in the end I re-ordered a space grey instead. Still beautiful, nonetheless.

Brought it to work today and been testing it out, especially on the lookout for the "bendgate". So far, so good. No bending!

I've been using my iPhone 6 plus today for taking pictures and whats-apping at work. I do have a few gripes on using an iphone compare to my q10. For starters, i hate having to double click the main button to multi-task between apps. On a blackberry q10, all i have to do is swipe up, left or right. Pretty easy to move around the OS 10 for blackberry.

On an iPhone, everything have to be close and re-open. Close the window from a whatsapp to check my email in Yahoo, Hotmail or even Gmail. Apple, really have to think of an easier way for us to multi-task and move around apps. For now, I still prefer blackberry OS. Although, I do like the design of the iPhone hardware and software. The retina display is gorgeous and loads and loads of glorious apps!

Another, big gripe for me in using my iPhone 6 plus is the damn bloody keyboard. Maybe, because, I've been using a q10 keyboard for awhile now and still need to get used to touch typing on an iPhone. I keep making mistakes and sometime, after posting it, realizing the word I wanted was change. :p

I'm still dabbling with my iphone and admittedly, have to re-learn using it. Been downloading my old apps. My last iPhone was around 6 years ago on a 2nd gen. That's a long time in Apple world!

Okay, then. It's late and I'm still charging my iPhone on my laptop. It does take a long time to be charge (when plugging on my laptop). The good news is, the battery lasted until I reach home after work. That's a good 12-18 hrs?

Don't forget to watch my re-unboxing video above!

Good day!
