It's would be almost adorable watching Nintendo try to offer capable online functionality if it wasn't so exasperating. The company is embracing the digital world one pigeon-step at a time, but mincemeat minister Reggie Fils-Aime promises that the 3DS will mark significant improvements.

"We’ve acknowledged that digital content is an area that we have to do a better job with," said the savory executive. "... That will be wide-ranging. Everything from our own version of the Virtual Console, with Game Boy and Game Boy Color content, to all of the DSiWare content, to brand new digital content that’ll be in 2D and 3D."

I really hope the eShop stuff will be a success, as I'm very excited for its potential. The fact that it's not ready until May, however, makes me believe Nintendo views it as an afterthought. Doesn't exactly inspire confidence, y'know?

Let's all play Captain Toad at Nintendo's PAX booth

As far as "games at PAX Prime I want to see" go, it's mostly a) a bunch of indies and b) whatever Nintendo's bringing to the show. While that second list is sadly missing Yoshi's Woolly World and Kirby and the Rainbow Curse, ...more
