IT'S SO FLUFFY I'M GONNA DIE.
Like the cute, simplistic aesthetic of Animal Crossing but wish it were a little more goal-oriented? Enjoy the wide scope of The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim but wish it were fluffier and just a little bit more manageable? Fantasy Life, which comes out for the Nintendo 3DS tomorrow, is the adorable middle ground you've been waiting for.Read More
Too much cuteness for one post.
Nintendo released a new ad for the 3DS in Japan, and it was (of course) incredibly cute. The adorableness has inspired a wave of fanart, and the best pieces are collected over on Dorkly! Including 1920s beach dress Peach, hipster-dad Bowser, and definitely-crushin'-on-each-other Peach and Zelda.Read More
I have no underwear and I must scream.
Good news for those of us who get annoyed by weird out-of-place sexualization of characters in video games—when Princess Peach is flipped over in Super Smash Bros for the 3DS, you don't see her butt the same way you used to in previous games like Brawl. The bad news? If you stare long enough, you might see the fabric of reality unwinding on itself instead. Maybe I'll take a butt instead, thanks.Read More
Two guys, their assistants, and lots of magic.
I want to hug whoever came up with the amazing idea to put these two crazy kids together. I’m talking about Professor Layton, the top-hatted Londoner who loves solving puzzles, and ace attorney Phoenix Wright. They’re like peanut butter and jelly—a delicious man sandwich that packs so much flavor you won’t want to go back to having one without the other. In a totally platonic way, of course.Read More

Diving into a giant pool of pokémon is probably a lot safer than diving into gold.
If you've been waiting patiently for the release of Pokémon Bank since the North American and European release were first delayed past their original December 27th date, then you might be in luck. Apparently the 3DS software has just been made available in Europe, as well as Australia and New Zealand.Read More
We mean like a software bug, not a Catterpie or something.
Good news, Pokémon trainers! You can finally save in Lumiose City now! Well, not immediately, of course -- you have to download the patch software to your 3DS first. But after two weeks of having to leave the city walls to save so your files won't get corrupted, it's worth the hassle.Read More
