New Guy [29 Mar 2008|09:01pm]

What's up guys? I found this community by chance and thought it could use a little spicing up because it looks kinda dead. I'm more of the mainstream portable gamer. I currently own a PSP Slim, a DS Lite, and a GBA SP (which I only use for GameCube connectivity, older games meaning not GBA, and GBA multiplayer). I haven't heard much about the Gizmondo (I hope I'm spelling that correctly) but I had heard of it. I used to own a Game Gear, Gameboy (original), and Gameboy Color. I also had many of those Tiger Electronics games as a kid but they all died. I also have another community called nintendo_wi_fi as well.

I play my handheld games more than my actual consoles. I'm usually almost never home or too busy. I'm either always at school, looking for a job, or hanging out with friends so those bus rides don't seem as tedious. I have Tekken 5: Dark Resurrection currently in my PSP, Cooking Mama on my DS Lite, and The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening DX in my Gameboy Advance SP. Hopefully we can stir this place up a bit.

Coming soon, the Pandora! [13 Mar 2008|12:30pm]

Community's rather dead, but with as fast as portable/mobile technology's changing, I think there is some props to the electronics world needed.

I have to say that although the PSP is capable of some nice emulation, I wouldn't mind forking over dough for the Pandora.

Find out more about it on the link. I'd post more if I really thought people would read this and acknowledge it.

Wow, sure is slow! [09 Oct 2007|11:48am]

Doesn't seem like anyone took a gander here in a while. True, there aren't many portable gaming enthousiasts, apparently?

So here's this...

The Pokemon Mini. Played it? Give your opinions on it. :)

Selling My BLUE DS [17 Oct 2006|08:43am]

Selling my DS. [01 Jul 2006|11:44am]

It's a sad thing to say, but i'm selling my DS along with several other games. I just never have the time to play anymore and there's no point in such a nice DS sitting around and collecting dust. I figured I would let you all know, so that if anyone has a sibling or friend that was looking for a cheap DS (with some extra games), perhaps you all could pass the word around. It's one of the MarioKart special edition red ones, and it's in great condition with spotless/scratchless screens and just a few minor scratches to the casing.

Here's the link: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=020&item=300003381016&rd=1&sspagename=STRK%3AMESE%3AIT&rd=1

Thanks. :)

If this isn't allowed, I'm sorry, [23 May 2006|02:25pm]

but I've just listed my Neo Geo Pocket Color with 6 games, and Neo Geo case on eBay.

Check it out here.

Spectron PMP30/3723ST [14 Feb 2006|06:07pm]

So I got my hands on this little gem. It's another one of those 30in1 8-bit nintendo famicom clones, but this is much different because it has its own 2" TFT screen. And for 40 euro this is a damn good deal.

I will be getting a second one soon so I can disect it, but it seems to feature the all-known NES-on-a-chip. It also has an AV cable to connect it to a TV like any other of the 30in1 famiclones. A company called Spectron BV sells this in The Netherlands, but it is definetly some goodie from China. I've yet to track down the original company.

[ mood | excited ]

Well, the NGPC arrived today. Threw in a pair of rechargeables I had sitting around, spent a couple minutes figuring where the power was, found it, and then it booted right up. Asked me for some configuration stuff, put it in, and all's well on that part.

Now the downsides. First of all, after configuring it, it imforms me that its "sub-battery" is dead. Upon closer examination, it was found to be /missing/! Along with /three/ of the four screws that hold it together!

I guess that's what I get for buying the cheapest one that I could find. :/ At least it was the silver version... :)

Now if only my "Sonic the Hedgehog Pocket Adventure" cart that I ordered would arrive...

w00t! Finally got off my lazy a** (well, metaphorically at least), and ordered a silver NGPC off eBay and a suprisingly cheap copy of Sonic Pocket Adventure off Amazon, now I just need to wait for them to arrive. :D

Playing with the GP32 [30 Jan 2005|02:08pm]

Well, I couldn't wait for the SM card I ordered off of eBay to arrive, and since the shops around here want $90 CDN for a 128mb card, I copied the game files off of the 16mb card my GP32 came with so I could at least have something to toy around with.

I loaded on an NES and Commodore 64 emulator that had no compatibility issues with the new BLU+ and found some roms easily enough. I have noticed however that a good deal of NES roms just dont work at all, though they work find on the emu on my GBA MovieAdvance. Suprisingly I have had more luck with the c64 roms, even multi disc images. FYI I am using Frodo for the c64 emulation and LittleJohn for the NES emulation.

It's been a blast seening the crackers splash screens coming up when loading c64 games! I remember some of those names from when I was 13. Very nostalgic.

Spening some time reading GP32 forums to get an idea of what should and shouldn't work as well as find some recommendations of what sort of aps I should load up.

Good times.

Hello [27 Jan 2005|12:30am]

Hey all, I was looking for a GP32 community and I found this one so I figured I would join and say hi.

My GP32 BLU just arrived from GBAX.com I am in Canada, so got hit with the tax on it (15%) but it was worth it for such a unique device. Mine came with the wireless adapter and the Dungeon and Guarder game. Haven't hooked it up to the computer yet to load on emulators etc, but looking forward to geeking out with it this weekend.

In addition to the GP32, I own a NintendoDS and a Sega Game Gear. Even though I can emmulate them, I will be picking up an Atari Lynx and Sega Nomad just for nostalgia's sake one of these days.

I actually started a small NintendoDS site about a week ago... if you like have a look at :ndsts.com

Portable famicom! [18 Jan 2005|11:40am]

Welcome! [09 Dec 2004|12:19am]

[ mood | chipper ]

Welcome to the portablegaming community. Since I like portables of all kinds and sizes, ranging from the known to the odd to the rare ones, I figured I'd start a community about them and see how it goes.

Of course, this community still needs a look of its own, so I'll be thinking and working on that as I find the time. Until then, post away!

As first thing, I wanted to put together a list of portables known. It's a huge list and some sites already have such a list, but we'd do good to have our own. I'd appreciate any help finding out about all sorts of machines, so I can put up a list somewhere. Thanks!

The portables I own currently are: GP32 FLU, Gameboy Classic Transparent, Game King, Game Duck, Game & Watch (tetris, I think), and some older LCD games.
