Reasons for creating 3DSBlessed
“I’ve been writing for other people’s gaming sites since 2010, first for SegaDriven, then for PlusXp. In early 2011, in the run-up to the 3DS’ release, I had the idea to set up a 3DS site. I had been a big fan of the Nintendo DS, and must have played 100s of games on my console. I thought to myself : if I had made a news site at the beginning about all the games I played through-out the 5 years I played it it would actually have quite a lot of content. I figured I didn’t want to miss my chance now there was a new Nintendo handheld in town.
So I set up the original Tumblr site, aswell as our Twitter account. Only problem was, my temp job was coming to an end, and I couldn’t afford to buy a 3DS. I actually didn’t get a 3DS until that November (it was one of my first purchases when acquiring a new job, a treat to myself if you like) but by then I had been made a staff member on PlusXp and was concentrating all my efforts there.
So I left the 3DSBlessed project abandoned. But never forgot it…
The time came for me to leave PlusXP in November 2012. Among the reasons I left was the fact I wanted more control ; I wanted to partake in things like editing. I also wanted to play a role in a gaming podcast. It seemed the time was ripe for me to revive my baby. So that’s exactly what I have done…
