Well, this is a massive update. Nothing terribly, super awesome in it for the or , though. It’s not like we got the 3DS Badge Grab Center. Probably the only thing I’d recommend is Fairune for the 3DS, since most of the stuff in this week’s eShop update is shovelware. As for sales, there are more »

Light and Dark Skylanders Trap Team elements make sense, but aren’t fair

With Skylanders Trap Team Activision and Toys for Bob decided to take things a step further. It wasn’t enough to have 8 different elements worth of Skylanders figures for people to collect.

Here’s how you use the 3DS Badge Grab Center

I found the best thing last night, when I updated my Japanese 3DS XL. Nintendo’s been moving towards allowing all kinds of customization on the system, what with the introduction of Themes, and has taken another step forward with The Badge Grab Center. What’s that? It’s an application that lets people acquire decorations, new icons, more »

Wait for a sale for Xeodrifter

I have good news and bad news about Renegade Kid’s Xeodrifter. The good news is, it’s a lot better than the abysmal Planet Crashers it released in 2012. The bad news is, it isn’t as great as the now iconic and multiplatform Mutant Mudds. Yes, Xeodrifter is one of “those” games. It’s middling. It has more »

Ultimate NES Remix seems easier on the 3DS

The 3DS version of Ultimate NES Remix may not be as alluring as the separate Wii U releases or its bundled, physical compatriot, but I’ve noticed something unusual about this collection.

Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker needed this port

The Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor games are probably the most innovative offshoots of the SMT series. Sure, Persona is much more popular, but it also is a fairly typical JRPG. Games like Devil Survivor Overclocked and Devil Survivor 2 Record Breaker shook up the formula, not only because they’re strategic RPGs, but because the more »

Nintendo 2DS feels like a step backwards

When Walmart was having a pre-Black Friday sale on 2DS systems, I jumped on it. For only I could have a 2DS of my own. I could stop borrowing my boyfriend’s Pikachu 3DS XL, out of fear that I would break such a precious thing. However, I felt really strange when I finally held the more »
