Nintendo 3DS black Nintendo 3DS Getting 3D Pokedex on June 6

The Nintendo 3DS is getting a significant software update on June 6. I’m not at all interested in the new web browser. I should be excited by the new (and way late) Nintendo eShop online store. What really has me excited is the 3D Pokedex for Pokemon Black/White! Here are some details from the press release:

Within the Nintendo eShop, Nintendo 3DS users will also be able to download the free Pokédex 3D application and start collecting data for more than 150 Pokémon from the Pokémon Black Version and

Hunted Demons Forge This Weeks Videogame Releases

There are a pair of interesting games coming out this week. First up is Hunted: The Demon’s Forge. I’m looking forward to this action-RPG. It’s made by the peeps at inXile (The Bard’s Tale), a company founded by Interplay OG Brian Fargo. It looks like an evolved version of Baldur’s Gate: Dark Alliance (one of my favorite games last generation). Fighting fans looking for action on the go will want to check out BlazBlue Continuum Shift II. Hardcore fighters raved about the first game and the … continued

Dead or Alive Dimensions This Weeks Videogame Releases

After a huge release last week, there are a handful of interesting games coming out this week. The Nintendo 3DS gets a big franchise and big-boob jiggling in Dead or Alive Dimensions. Dirt 3 should keep racing-game fans happy, though fans of actual dirt might be disappointed. Last, but not least, is a move tie-in — Kung-Fu Panda 2 brings the adorable martial artisan back to consoles, but with some motion-control goodness this time around.

Any of you picking up new games this week?… continued

Rediscovered Red-Crested Tree Rat is Really a Pokemon

Red Crested Tree Rat Rediscovered Red Crested Tree Rat is Really a Pokemon

The red-crested tree rat hasn’t been spotted since 1898, so scientists were thrilled to encounter one earlier this month. Too bad it’s nothing more than a frickin’ Pokemon! Just look at it. It’s obvious that this thing isn’t a “normal” creature. I’m also certain that it doesn’t call itself a red-crested tree rat. It surely has a cute Japanese-sounding name that it repeats over and over again.

Come on guys. Back me up on this one. Don’t you think this so-called red-crested tree rat is just a Pokemon?!?

Brink This Weeks Videogame Releases

After a few slow weeks, May brings several interesting games to the table. Brink has been getting a lot of buzz — some of my reviewer friends are high on this game and some are meh on it. Virtua Tennis 4 looks to bring the series back to glory. LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean serves up the cutest version of Captain Jack Sparrow ever. MX vs. ATV Live should keep motor sports fans happy. The First Templar is flying under the radar, but a few of my friends are digging … continued

Dial soap Nintendo of America Hires Dial Soap Guy as Executive VP

Normally I can’t be bothered to write about companies hiring new executives. For the most part, none of you care. Nintendo’s latest executive announcement was too good not to touch. The company has hired Scott Moffitt as the new executive vice president of sales & marketing for Nintendo of America. He’ll be reporting to NOA president Reggie Fils-Aime — you know, the guy that marketed Guiness beer, Pizza Hut, and Panda Express before taking Nintendo to new heights. How can Moffitt match up with Fils-Aime? Well, just look at this … continued
