Show and Tell: All around the world

We love hearing from our international readers, particularly because most of us -- with the exception of Mr. Chris Greenhough -- are tucked away in the United States. So when Flacko, a reader from Estonia, sent us in pictures of her collection, we sat up and took notice, even if they aren't the best quality pictures we've ever seen (for which she apologized). The other thing that makes this collection interesting (besides all the Nintendo stuff) is that Flacko reports she is a major minority in Estonia. Most girls there are into "makeup and shopping," she says, not games. We know how that can be. But take heart! In the worldwide gaming community, you're not alone.

Got something you want to show off to all the other DS fans? We like just about anything with a little Nintendo flavor, so snap a few pics and send 'em off to tell us what's up, and send it all to showmeit [at] dsfanboy [dot] com. We'll take care of the rest.

Well, I'm gonna call it: I'm probably the only reader from Argentina. Or at the very least, the only one that a) dominates the english language more than spanish at this point (I know, it's kinda sad) and b) I'm the only Argentine to comment in this post. Hah! Beat that!

*ahem* Anyway, there you have it Alisha, when we played Clubhouse 2 weeks or so ago, you were playing with a silly south american, haha. Losing in Shake the Bottle ftw!

Hey! A fellow Estonian, awesome.
My DS collection is quite measily being I recieved my awesome pink DS as a Christmas gift, but we should totally exchange friend kodes for some hot Mario Kart action.
I know there are a small group of other regular readers here for this site, so our gaming community is small but thriving, but it hasn't taken off that well because it mostly relies on imports (or in worst cases, pirating :( ).

Aga tegelikult ka, heida mulle mail, oleks lõbus mängida kellegagi eestist koos, plus mul veel mõned sõbrad kellel DS, saaks hookida up :)

Hi. Nice to see you too. Lol didn't expect to see this here. Anyway, yeah, we can change Friend codes if you want.

With that time, the pictures were taken, I had some new games arrived What I love to have in my collection:

Heroes of might and Magic Complete collection

Guitar Hero 3 (Quite rare here, as the company Andricoships stuff here and sometimes it's not usually avalable. I had to buy a PC version to get it, but now I'm waiting my payday to buy a Xbox360 version.

Geometry Wars: Galaxies. Just like Xbox360 ver, but much bigger,with CO OP, multiplayer, and versus. 60 stages of fun shooting and gaining points.

A Wii blue cool stand. Amazing item. I love it. Everytime you turn on your Wii, it glows blue!

So the gaming stuff is still growing ;).

Well to be true, I hAve only started collecting since 17 years old, so that's why it is so tiny. + We have games very expensive too (£45 and up] And that's why we can't afford much games. UK has much better deals, we don't have even those. No rentals, No buy 1 get 1 free's or buy 2 games in 1 price, we have to pay the game as £45 and that's all.

I only get paid in month about £170 ..When you people get £1000... see a diffirence...

How it is to be a Estonian gamer? I'm Brazilian and it's HARD to be a gamer here, since a DS card costs almost US$ 100, while a DS costs around US$ 230. So, I can say it's pretty easy to find a Wii here -- if you are willing to pay the price tag of US$ 950.

Do you Elbonians have these kind of trouble?

It's hard. Like I said in my previous post. Games are expensive and can't afford some stuff. I'm still waiting to get Halo legendary edition,it costs 3000 eek.
some special editions wont arrive here either (GTA IV special edition)

Flacko sa oled kuulus!

Estonia gets raped in the bum with games - Rest of Europe gets the games, we wait for 1-6 months and then we'll get the games for the price of 2....
Also, the console prices are through the roof and if you're interested in buying a PS3, you might aswell have to sell your soul for it.
