The Daily Hotness: Oh Nikki…

The 3DS finally got its messaging app today and, if you’ve spent any amount of time with it, you’ve likely grown fond of Nikki, the delightfully helpful tour guide. It seems a GAF user has taken a liking to her and, well… yeah. 

It was a bit of a slow day, but we’e got some prices for the Vita’s memory cards, there’s going to be a new .hack// game (YES!), The Legend of Zelda has an official timeline, Gamestop says “sorry,” and more happened on 12/23.
