Portable Gaming: Introduction

 

As I stated in my intro post, I favor portable gaming over console/PC gaming. This
means of course that I have opinions on what’s happened/happens/will happen with
portable gaming. I will tend to lean away from mobile being included in portable
as a definition, but unfortunately that’s not how the market is any more so it
needs to be brought up as well.

I have owned the following system and have at least some familiarity with their
library:

Gameboy
Gameboy Color
Gameboy Advance and SP
Gameboy Micro
DS and Lite
DSi and XL
3DS XL
PSP 1000/2000/Go
Wonderswan Crystal (Japanese only portable that was Gunpei Yokoi’s last system)
Neo Geo Pocket Color
Game Gear
Vita and Playstation TV (got it yesterday!)
iPhone/iPad
Samsung Galaxy Note 2

TurboExpress-Front

And I think I’m missing one or two systems in here. I also had a Dingoo which was
a cheap piece of shit that I got mostly for emulation purposes (and sold shortly
afterwards).

I might post about non-portable gaming, but most of my attention will be on portables
and the history there of. Including retro reviews. Not all of my opinions will be
popular, but that’s not my goal. My goal is to foster conversation on the less talked
about branch of video games.

    I was thinking of getting a Neo Geo Pocket Color since it came out during my favorite era of gaming. Any pearls of wisdom?

      Both KoF games, Last Blade, Gal Fighters, SNK vs Capcom (both), and probably Sonic.

      Have you ever went to use a tv remote only to find out that
      someones taken the batteries?

      It’s annoying. If you run out of batteries, remember.
      Don’t be a dick.
