The New 3DS’s C-stick will be a win

The new, I’m sorry, New 3DS may have a bit of an identity issue. One thing it doesn’t have an issue with is charm. The thing is just flat-out weird. I love weird.

It’s obviously no secret that I’m a fan of virtual reality. It stems from my ongoing love affair with anime like .Hack and Sword Art Online. I dream for the days when we can be fully immersed in video games. Hopefully that immersion doesn’t end badly like it did in .Hack or SAO, but that’s more »
