Car has had to go into the garage again, only £150 but seeing I've just spent nearly £700 on it. It's a lot which would of gone towards PS4, Cars MOT & TAX etc. So I'm back to considering selling N64 again as its value by eBay on average being sold individually £498 which is a lot of money basically sat doing nothing but the console is so good. So I'm torn what to do, phillps did bring up about the dreamcast that most of it's top games have been re-released on other systems, and thinking about it at work today most of the top N64 games like ocarina of time I can play on my 3DS, so do i need to keep it just to play goldeneye, mario kart (got 7 & 8 next year) now and again.

Toy Commander is the greatest game of all time and if it got an HD re-release then I would be every version on every console. I'd even buy a console to play a version of it on.

I am now using the terms "well-made Hitler" and "glass-filled cupcake" in all my online gaming debates.

e.g. Fire Emblem Awakening: well-made Hitler.
Tales of the Abyss: glass-filled cupcake.

I think I'm realising I'm not much of a hand held gamer anymore, I think it comes from the games generally getting closer to a console experience in terms of length & I just can't go for that on a hand held system.

As good as they may be I just have no motivation to return to games like fire emblem & dream team bros at the minute. (I'm even thinking of trading in the former)

I've always said that about the vita, I'd sooner play a console like game eg uncharted on a console not a handheld.

I think that DTB is fairly well suited to a handheld, actually, due to allowing you to save everywhere. In fact, in that respect it's the most handheld-friendly game in the handheld-exclusive franchise.

That said, I do see your point. LM2's long missions, MK7's grands prix... There aren't many "dip-in, dip-out" 3DS games. I essentially use it as a home console, only I can take it on the train, but I realise that's not an ideal use of it. Roll on Pokémon X & Y, therefore.

My only issue with Handheld games being big and meaty is the length of the battery. I don't like being plugged in whilst playing so it has to have a decent play session in it. Otherwise I'm happy with it, I can easily watch a couple of TV shows whilst I play them unless I feel they really need sound like Uncharted.

Give me a game on the 3DS over a game on the Wii U GamePad any day of the week. In my opinion, handheld gaming has never been better. I'm loving my 3DS XL at the moment.

I love my 3DS as well, and fire emblem is very handheld friendly play a mission and then go back to what your doing.

You can't play just one mission of Fire Emblem!

I'm finding myself more of a handheld gamer than a console gamer at the moment, the 3DS just has a lot to offer.

It's not the games themselves as they have been of a very high quality recently, I personally just can't plonk myself in front of handheld for more than hour.....the last game that done that was probably LM2.

Simply, the 3DS has the games at the moment, so I'm using it more than the Wii U. Admittedly, EarthBound and Cloudberry Kingdom are pulling me in the Wii U's direction, and the lure of Duck Tales Remastered will likely make me shift allegiances (albeit temporarily).

I'm gutting my room at the moment to make way for postgrad stuff and to hopefully make space for a wine cellar. The last time I gutted my room like this was when I was getting it 'Wii ready'. Remember those days? Those days of making sure you have enough room with swing a baseball bat, smack a golf ball, be able to snowboard and strike a punch? Might not seem like much now, but I loved those days. There wasn't a time in my gaming life that was as exciting as that summer 2006-Christmas 2006 wait for the Wii.

My Wii experience was somewhat more cramped. No room for wild swinging - it ended up in a cracked mirror during a particularly crazy game of Mario and Sonic at the Olympic Games.

My shameful backloggery score has made me want to rush through games a bit more lately rather than enjoy them.

My Backloggery score is appalling. I blame Steam and its plethora of sales.

Mine is pretty poor, I'm dangerously close to 500 unbeaten, in fact if I updated it with my recent PS= and Vita purchases I just might be there...

I'm just about keeping my head above water with having 50% Unfinished or less- although I've only got about 300 games and there are a few that simply aren't on the list at all...

And this is why I don't have a Backloggery. Dance If I enjoy a game I'll probably finish it, or get back around to it eventually.  I don't want to feel forced to.

AS you can probably tell by my unfinished number I don't feel forced to. I just like to keep track of what I've played and not played without hunting it down on the shelf.
