It looks like my post from Monday is well on it’s way to getting several of my male readers reprimanded by their bosses for productivity issues and in trouble with their wives. Sorry about that. I had a feeling that it might happen. I would be curious if there was a single female reader who actually played at least one of the Nintendo games on the site? Come on, just one?
We’ll, in case you haven’t heard, 3D is the next big thing in media. As you know, Avatar totally kicked butt at the box office this year not because it was a great story, but because it was a fascinating 3D experience. When I hear that someone went to go see it in 2D I just shake my head. It just doesn’t make sense. At CES this year, the hot item was 3D TVs. Tons of them. The word on the street is that within a few years, most TV’s will be 3D capable, you just won’t have to use it in 3D mode unless you want to. In addition, there are a lot of rumors that sports will be one of the first content providers to dive heavily into 3D.
So, Nintendo announced the other day a new DS system called the 3DS. It looks just like the DS, but it does it all in 3D. The coolest part of it all is that you don’t have to wear glasses. That’s a good thing. How dumb would you look riding on an airplane playing your DS with those silly 3D glasses on? Some of you are probably asking about how silly you’d look riding on an airplane playing your DS.

Female Reader, born in the late 70’s, etc. etc. I know the games on the Nintendo8 website. Even purchased one to download on the Wii so I could prove to my boys that I CAN beat a video game. :p
…and yes… I’m picturing you playing your DS on an airplane ((on the way to ORANGE2010)) and *silly* does come to mind…
Your blogging goal has me anxious now for you, but the posts are cracking me up! You need to start posting what number the post is…
Ha! Go Erin you video game nerd! Beat your kids (at games that is). I can’t wait until Titus is older, I’ll have a built in video game buddy.
You know, I always have my DS with me… always in my backpack, but I rarely play it. I’ve got a great two player game… I just need someone else with a DS. Ha!
Hmmm, a countdown for my posts… that’s not really a bad idea.. I probably can’t do that for all the posts. I tend to pre-write a lot of posts and then inspiration will hit and I’ll spit out another post and that could end up mixing up my order a bit… but I can probably do something to build excitement. Ha!
and I wasn’t even born until 1986, but we were always a little behind the times on the current game system…preacher’s kid. 🙂
