For Your Consideration: Raticate With No Teeth

The other night, I was playing Pokémon Crystal in bed, when I came upon a Raticate. Looking upon his angry, buck-toothed visage, I began to wonder what this creature might look like absent its most defining feature.

Nintendo Shutting Down 3DS & WiiU eShops

In a move that has sadly been inevitable for some time, Nintendo announced late on Tuesday, February 15th, 2022, that they would begin the process of shutting down the eShops for both the 3DS and WiiU systems starting this year, and culminating in March of 2023, abandoning another console’s history to the eBay aftermarket.
