The Nintendo 3DS and WiiU eShops are Dead

Yesterday, March 27th, 2023, was the last day to buy something from Nintendo’s 3DS and WiiU eShops. Opening the shops on those consoles now presents the user with a series of empty digital shelves. The 3DS eShop still displays its collection of “Nintendo Selects” for some reason, though all of the games’ listings read, “This software is currently unavailable.” At least the animations and music … Continue reading The Nintendo 3DS and WiiU eShops are Dead

OPINION: The Street Sweeper Should Be Allowed to Eat Your Car

The street sweeper. The highlight of any New Yorker’s Thursday and/or Friday mid-morning to early afternoon. Maybe they do it other days and times in other neighborhoods, I don’t know.

Amazingly, I finally finished my big, long Game of the Year wrap-up this week. So I figured whipping up another one of these would be a fun follow-up. There’s just something satisfying about agonizing over one post for three months, only to turn around and finish another in one sitting. This series (it’s a series now) started as a post marking the games I’d Played … Continue reading Every Video Game I Played in 2022

It’s RPG Season, Baby

Fall has finally, officially arrived in my neck of the woods, and you know what that means: It’s time to throw on your thickest socks, your fuzziest sweater, your coziest blanket, grab a cup of something hot, and play some video games. But not just any video games. Only the biggest, longest, meatiest (oh my) games will do. I’m talking about my new best friend, … Continue reading It’s RPG Season, Baby
