Are you still playing your 3DS?

It has come to my attention that I've not touched my 3DS since I reviewed Ridge Racer 3D, and this makes me very unhappy. The Streetpass function is useless here, the collection of Play Coins feels like a waste of time, and Nintendo release...

Not a joke: Cave Story being remade for 3DS

Wait just a minute. NIS America is publishing (and Nicalis is developing) a remake of Cave Story, and it's going to have 3D graphics presented on a 2D plane with the 3DS' depth-of-field wizardry in mind? That sounds like too incredible a th...
