My Secret Diary – Nintendo DS


My Secret Diary is the seventh O-Games title I’ve had the ability to review. While I haven’t been impressed whatsoever by the other two titles in the My Games series (My Dress-Up and My Make-Up), My Secret Diary offers a little bit more substance and is the first game in the series that may actually have a justifiable existence. While the other My games offer little to do and no reason to do it, My Secret Diary has some hint of a purpose and reason for a young girl to give it a few moments of their time. I’m not saying it’s the next Final Fantasy, but at least it’s something.

My Make-Up for Nintendo DS


I’m not the target market for My Make-Up. I’m not a nine year-old girl bored to death with no other means of entertainment and no method of social interaction.

It’s the exact same bit of slag, but on a face instead of on the body.

My Dress-Up – Nintendo DS Game


When little girls play dress-up, they aren’t doing it for any real purpose. They aren’t hoping to get top marks from a fashion judge. They aren’t giving out wardrobe advice like tiny versions of What Not to Wear. They’re just…

Hurry Up Hedgehog – Nintendo DS


Hurry Up Hedgehog is not what you expect it to be when you hear the title. Naturally, you first think it’s a Sonic rip-off, given the “speediness” of the title. It’s easy to assume it might be some type of…

Challenge Me: Maths Workout – Nintendo DS

Chrono Trigger DSLite
