well, we are indeed in a time of handheld gaming paradise, with not one, not two, but five handheld systems out or slated to be out before the end of next year. We all know about gameboy, its been around forever. and we all have heard about and seen the ads for the Nokia N-Gage crapfest (I don't think it'll do well). and I am sure most of us here have heard of the Playstation Portable coming out next year. but how about two other systems which most people have not heard of? first is the GamePark 32. Its like the gameboy if it were made by programmers instead of Nintendo. It has a bigger screen, uses smart media cards (the type you use in a camera) and can connected to a computer to download new games, movies and songs onto the SMC. Its pretty cool. Most of the games are made by people who own the system as homebrew games. They have a nigh perfect Sega Mastersystem, genesis, atari 2600, Gameboy (not advance), Lynx, and NES emulator for it as well as games like DOOM, Rise of the Triad, and Descent ported to it (all for free mind you). I own one. I think its great. www.gp32news.com or www.gp32emu.com are good sites to find out more. Next is one that excites me a lot. The Tapwave Zodiac. Its a palm pilot with a graphics card and a bunch of other enhancements to make it a gaming system. It runs all of the palm software out so far (business and game) and uses bluetooth to do wireless gaming. It has some pretty big names gamewiase coming to it. It has Tony Hawk 4, Duke Nukem, Doom 2, Neverwinter Nights (Woot). Its coming out nxt month, so when I get it next month , i'll let you all know how it is! www.zodiacgamer.com is a good site for info.
