Thousands of people have recently picked up a Nintendo 2DS or 3DS (good choice, by the way!), and as a result, there have been a ton of issues with every facet of the eShop. One issue in particular involves the constant error codes that have plagued folks who have attempted to redeem codes.

Thankfully, Nintendo has offered up a possible solution. If you encounter the errors "Error Message: This Code Has Already Been Used," or "A Download Code is not working because it has already been redeemed," check your download history first (eShop > Menu > Settings/Other > History > Your Downloads).

It's a simple solution, yes, but one that many may not think of as they're frantically trying to redeem their brand new codes.

Pokémon Puzzle Challenge coming to 3DS next month

I love Pokémon Puzzle Challenge.  I am glad that it is coming to the 3DS Virtual Console. I think I will pay $5 for it despite still having a cartridge. I probably won't bother with the code for the Special Demo Version of Ruby and Sapphire it comes with, but that's fine. It is a lovely little game. I think I will go play it right now. more
