Let’s starts at the very beginning, a very good place to start.

Step one:  Order a NDS capture card.

Step two:  Buy a NDS on kijiji.

(Surprised it was boxed!  I did *NOT* pay 179.99 for it, by the way, haha.  And he threw in the copy of Animal Crossing Wild World free of charge!  I have gone from losing a beloved copy of that game to having surplus copies- AWESOME.)

Step three:  Wait for the capture card to arrive ;_;  (I did already get a USPS tracking number and shipping notification- YAAAAS!)

There was a time in my life when arguably, I was a pretty advanced computer end user.  I had a lot of fun dabbling in HTML, goofing around in photo editors.  There was also a time that I was super into video games, and even kept a gaming blog.  I’d love to foster some of those skills again, and add others (video)- so I’ve decided to start game blogging again, and I’d like to capture my own images and videos.  I’d like to play around with twitch.tv and YouTube.  I have no grand delusions that I’ll be popular on either of those platforms, but I think I can have some fun sharing my GBA and NDS collections (among my other portable distractions) on this blog 🙂  I’d love to have a 3DS capture card since that’s the platform I play the most these days, but they seem to be pricey and in short supply- so that gives me the motivation to explore some titles that I really loved last gen or two, and discover some that I had always wanted to play.  I had a lot of fun blogging about games on 1up.com and I’d like to re-live that 🙂

I am super anxious about installing the capture card though!
