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.
With Eric on vacation, it falls upon me to judge whether the eShop has once again gone HAM (I had to ask him what HAM was to make sure), and in my expert opinion, eShop done gone HAM.
The 8-Bit Summer deposited Kirby’s Pinball Land and Sword of Hope II on Virtual Console, the Game & Watchy Johnny Kung Fu is out, and there’s a really hilarious-looking blackjack game/visual novel/dating sim thing. Oh, and Ace Mathician from super interesting DSiWare dev Goodbye Galaxy Games is going to teach you math.
AND Mighty Switch Force is $3 this weekend. There’s, uh, also a Big Time Rush video on Nintendo Video, if that’s what you’re looking for in your portable entertainment.
