Dark water and the things below give me the shivers

Don't expect the NES Remix games to come to 3DS

I'd be playing NES Remix 2 right now were it not for my tragic lack of a Wii U. (Almost made an impulse purchase the other day.) With the sequel out this week, one question that might've crossed your mind is, "Why not also put these games o...   read
