All About bdmckinley
22Feb 12So I have had a pretty bad run of luck with consoles this generation. I managed to kill 3 Xbox 360s (80 hrs playtime between all 3) and a PS3 (again, about 80 hrs playtime) that I had to have repaired once for YLoD. My Wii on the other hand was the first one I bought out of all of them and is still performing like a standard Nintendo console. I have basically shunned all other consoles that do not carry a Nintendo badge. Call me a fanboy if it makes you feel better. Nintendo has never let me down as far as customer service or reliability of a product are concerned. I have even made it a personal quest to try to collect full game sets for all of Nintendo's cartridge based consoles. This is pretty much an impossible task given the rarity of some games but it has been fun to say the least. I'm about 25% done with the N64 collection and have only been concentrating on that system for a few months. If I don't play them it's okay. I plan on giving them to my son in the next 20 years or so. Who knows how much a full collection for any given console will be worth? Peace...
30Jan 11So I promised myself I wouldn't be suckered into buying another Nintendo console. Well, I guess I was just kidding myself. Nintendo has and probably always will be in my blood. There is just something about those characters and the game play that just keep me coming back for more as much as I'd like to deny it. So here we go Nintendo, bring me my 3DS. I just hope you've worked all the kinks out of the online system unlike the Wii and DS.
8Feb 08So I have decided today that I will no longer purchase anymore Nintendo consoles. If you have read my blog posts it should be relatively easy to see I am steadily losing faith in Nintendo. How long has the Wii been out? It's been 16 months (or 64 weeks) since it's launch. Can you go buy a Wii if you want one? Hell no!!! Can you go out and buy a DS if you want? Not very easily. While more plentiful than the Wii, it still takes some doing to get one. I'm sorry. I just have a hard time believing that for the past 3 years straight you still have a very hard time buying their portable hardware after the holidays. Idea!!! Let's release a few more colors and not make very many!! Great idea......WTF!!!!! I'm just sick of everybody and their brother bugging the ever living crap out of me about getting them a Wii. Just because I work retail I can get everything, right? Wrong!! Even if I could get you a Wii, I wouldn't just because you annoy me to no end. Nintendo has run it's course in my life. Long live the PS3 and the 360!!
