    Orange and Teal Limited Edition 3DS XLs Are Coming to Japan

    Damn it, Japan gets all the coolest stuff before we do. Oh sure, Nintendo is a Japanese company and it would make sense for them to unveil these new limited edition 3DS XL there before anywhere else. But still.

    10 Reasons Why Now is the Best Time to Buy a Nintendo 3DS

    The Nintendo 3DS finally has an absolutely fantastic lineup, and a number of those are JRPGs -- that's Japanese role-playing games. Sure, the PlayStation Vita’s got versions of Final Fantasy X, X-2, and Persona 4, and iOS has ports of almost all of Square's major 2D RPGs. But this year the 3DS is swimming in a pile of JRPG gold, like some kind of electronic, two-screened Scrooge McDuck. The 3DS has become the place for new ideas in JRPGs, and this summer is especially an amazing time for them. That's why we've compiled nine games that are each a very good reason to pick a 3DS up, if you haven't already.

    Searching for Pokémon X on Google Leads to Porn, Because Of Course It Does

    Futilely wishing that this development won't be used as more justification for the misinformed anti-video game agendas of parent groups and law makers worldwide, children in Britain were met with the most unexpected of search results when scouring Google for anything related to the next installment in the Pokémon game franchise, Pokémon X: Links to a hardcore pornography website. Parents across the country no doubt spat out gallons of tea in shocked reaction to their children seeing what cannot be unseen, with many reaffirming that the Internet still has a way to go in regards to blocking minors from inadvertently stumbling upon unwholesome content.

    Nintendo Defends the Indefensible, the Kid Icarus: Uprising Control Scheme

    As someone who recently and happily received a brand new Cobalt Black Nintendo 3DS for his birthday along with Kid Icarus: Uprising, coupled with my longstanding frustration with Nintendo, seeing Kid Icarus creator Masahiro Sakurai come out and defend the game's awful, awful control scheme couldn't be more frustrating. I've been wanting to write about my experience with the controls for a while, and seeing Sakurai defend what is one of the worst control schemes of all time certainly provides a good opening.

    The Nintendo 3DS Now Has a Stand, Making it Less Portable Than Ever

    The Nintendo 3DS isn't as portable as one would think a portal gaming machine would be. Sure, you can physically move it around when playing it, and you can easily bring it somewhere without detaching it from your entertainment center and stuffing it into a big duffel bag like you'd have to do with a console, but if you want to actually use the 3D feature -- the whole point of the handheld -- you can't actually move the unit or your head around, or else the screen will be rendered visually indecipherable. Now, with the Japanese release of Kid Icarus: Uprising, the Nintendo 3DS will make use of a stand. That's right, a thing you plop down on a table, then attach the 3DS to while, amusingly for people who don't actually have to use it, actually holding the unit anyway.
