Welcome to Britt5091: Origins, where I dig up old blog posts I used to write for IGN’s community under the username Britt5091. Some posts may make you giggle, some may make your eyes bleed, and some may make you stroke your beard in a pensive manner. All you need to know is that these posts, no matter how terrible some of them may be, ultimately lead to everything I do now.
See? I listen!

A quick shoutout to all those that recommended I purchase the DSi. I briefly mentioned it in an earlier post, but in case you missed it, after a night out with some friends I ended up at Costco and left with a DSi. Liquid courage FTW.
I cannot believe the amount of fun I’m having with this thing. Where the hell have I been?
Well, honestly, up until this point I’ve scoffed at all that is handheld gaming. Neck cramps, small screens, less than stellar graphics — bah.
But hey, I stand corrected. Lately I’ve found myself dinking around with this lil’ gadget more than the bigger guys. It’s pretty much perfect. It fits in my purse, easily accessible and extremely convenient for a quickie gaming session. Heeellooo two mandatory 15 minute breaks at work, I now have a good use for you.
By the way, here are the games ya’ll recommended from my last post. I compiled a list so if anyone else is looking for something new to play as well.
1) Dead Space
2) Mass Effect
5) Batman AA
6) Fallout 3
7) KOTOR 1/2
8) Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance
9) Radiant Dawn
10) Persona 4
11) Ogre Battle: March of the Black Queen
13) Little King’s Story
14) Metroid Prime 3
15) Mini Ninjas
17) The Orange Box

Liquid courage: the reason for many silly purchases.
And yes, I’m calling my DSi a silly purchase for I haven’t picked that damn thing up in over two years. I’ve come to the conclusion that I shouldn’t buy any more handheld gaming consoles because I NEVER get my use out of them, minus the sporadic PSP 3000 usage I get on airplanes and such.
All I know is that my future husband will be able to look at that picture of me and think to himself, “Damn. I’ve picked one classy chick to spend the rest of my life with.” OYEAH
