Kachu and Tri-Pixel tees ⊟

If you’re in need of a slick shirt that will match your Jedward hairdo, Gametee and its Pikachu-patterned pocket here have you covered. The British online retailer also has a Zelda/Triforce design (and plenty of other gaming-themed shirts) if that’s your thing. Both tees are priced at £24.99 each, or $40. O_O

Amiibo Link will work with Hyrule Warriors ⊟
Nintendo just announced that the Amiibo Link toy will be compatible with Hyrule Warriors. Interesting that the company is going back to a previously released game to add Amiibo stuff, though I guess Mario Kart 8 is supposed to as well. And I’m sure this will involve an update.
No details yet on, like, what happens when you use the toy with the game.

Sega stuff for your cards ⊟

Are you a Netrunner player? Are you one of the best Netrunner players in the country, who also conducted this super insightful interview with Fantasy Flight Games’ Lukas Litzsinger about the progressive-by-nature treatment of gender and race in Netrunner? Are you reading this post as a draft before publishing it?

If so, Eric, you should consider some of these cool Sega retro card accessories. There are deck boxes, collection boxes, and even card sleeves in a variety of Sega themes. They’re all on Amazon Japan (via Miki800).

Pix the Cat: adventures in the micro-labyrinth ⊟

Take one part Pac-Man: Championship Edition, one part Snake — like, the thing for your old phone — and one part the unimaginable microcosm inside every living creature, and you get Pix the Cat. It’s an arcade maze action game that takes you, much like the Tuck Pendleton machine, ever deeper into Inner Space.

Luigi Death Stare: The Pumpkin ⊟
That’s one intimidating Jack O’Luigi. If you want all of this majesty on your own porch, you can download a template from Halloweencostumes.com (thanks to Maddy for the tip!)
While I’m thinking about it, Luigi Death Stare is a pretty good costume option! You can just get a store-bought Luigi costume, and glare menacingly across its fake moustache until the cops arrive.

3D printed 3DS/DS game holder ⊟

It’s a simple item, but I could see something like this being nice on a desk or nightstand, for quick access to favorite games. Or, like, if you built a gun that shot DS carts or something. It’s $8 from Nerdstuffz.

There’s a soundtrack CD for that horse racing solitaire game ⊟

Of course, Solitiba isn’t just any horse racing solitaire game. I mean, for one thing it’s probably the only one. But more importantly, it’s a rare self-published, original game by Pokemon developer Game Freak, with both game design and music by composer Go Ichinose.

So yeah, a 500 yen eShop (and iOS) game is getting a 2500-yen CD soundtrack, complete with karaoke versions, shipping November 7. I wondered if the music in this game was really that good, and it seems to be pretty cool!

Bowser in a box ⊟
Yes, jokes from 2006, that’s what’s going on right now. I hadn’t even thought about the shenanigans potential with the 3DS’s new home menu themes! Credit to Sir Radkey for the pic (via NintendoTweet).

The New 3DS hasn’t locked out homebrew ⊟

In this proof of concept video, Smealum demonstrates that his imported New 3DS can still be modified to run his unreleased homebrew launcher. For those of you who haven’t followed these developments, the French coder intended to launch a Homebrew Channel for the original 3DS but delayed the release to ensure its compatibility with Nintendo’s new hardware. His hack is particularly interesting because it’s purportedly incapable of loading pirated 3DS games.

Smealum notes, “Unfortunately, this [demonstration] was the easy part, and getting everything else running will be insanely tedious and take a fair amount of time (a few weeks, by my estimate). So essentially, this is a nice step forward; we’re still on track, and things are looking positive! But we’re not quite there yet, so sit tight.”
