Nintendo DS

I went and got myself a nice black Nintendo DS Lite with my Christmas money and have been addicted to these games ever since……


Hoshigami has you travelling across a two-dimensional map, going from location to location, following the plot of the game, and engaging in battles with your party of hired mercenaries to protect the land… One of the greatest tasks you’ll be charged with is the development of your party. There are some very interesting and unique elements to Hoshigami that make strategy not only possible, but pretty much integral to playing the game. You have to effectively manage your characters, be mindful of their health, and choose your enemies based on level of threat just to get by.

The dynamics are quite interesting and allow for a great bit of exploration and experimentation. While the moves and attacks do not begin to compare with chess, there are differences in the strengths and weaknesses of different types of characters, and using one type wisely will generally be better than using another type carelessly, independent of the character types. Also, the magic system revolves around ‘coins’ and ‘seals’ that are either bought or found in towers. These coins have different effects.  



MySims Kingdom sets you on a story-telling journey of discovery and exploration to help King Roland and his subjects revitalise the Kingdom. Throughout this epic quest you will hear new stories from old and new friends alike, discover fascinating new lands and build to the limit of your imagination.
Your MySims Kingdom experience for the Wii begins in The Capital, the land at the centre of your story-telling. After you have met King Roland you can venture off into the vast lands beyond. Newly-added building options will help you accomplish your tasks. And in true MySims fashion, everything is customisable, allowing every creation within your world to have a signature look!
My character, Nici has hot pink hair and some really funky clothing, my son has also got this game so we are hoping to link them up soon!


  1. I don’t have the patience for that first one! 😉
