The Year I Defected

Well well, six years of Electric Dilintia.

Two years ago, I declared that I was done buying video games. This turned out to be untrue, but it did mark a change in my perspective that has stayed with me. It would be more accurate to say that I'm done buying Nintendo games.

This past year has seen me strike out from my fanboy bubble and look into some alternatives to Nintendo games. I bought a Kindle and then an iPad, both of which are interesting game platforms. I've dabbled in Flash games. I did get a 3DS when Nintendo baited me with free games, but not even Mario 3D Land could really get me interested in it.

Which is not to say that I've dropped Nintendo entirely. I've been picking up my DS a lot lately, and I've remembered just how wonderful it is. There's so much it can do, and the games for it are so wonderful. I wish the world wasn't so ready to leave it behind.

I'll admit, the old blog is starting to feel a bit past its prime. But we'll see how things go.
