I’m growing uncomfortable with this new version of the 3DS eShop. For so long, I’ve thought of it as a venue for occasional, small updates, and for the fourth week in a row, it’s totally massive. I don’t know how to deal with this information. I want to be alone so I can process this to a point of understandingness.
So what’s out today? Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters, for one, which I’d never played before – and which seems so far like a for-real sequel to Kid Icarus. Tumble Pop, a kinda Bubble Bobble style thing about vacuuming up monsters. Petit Computer! The Phantom Thief Stina and 30 Jewels, which looked way interesting! Masyu by Nikoli, a type of puzzle I’d never even heard of! Plus – why not – the Rabi Laby sequel.
Later this weekend, Mario’s Picross will be on sale for $2.99, and – Eric will appreciate this – Nintendo Video will post a new episode of Dinosaur Office. Of course, WiiWare has to suffer to make this bounty possible, but I’m still pleased.
