Finally bought a 3DS, and discovered I know jackshit about S.D. cards when it turns out the cheap PNY cards I bought keep getting corrupted. Thankfully it only happens rarely when moving files onto them, but it's still inconvenient. The corrupted area will sometimes switch the card to read-only. Damn thing even resisted attempts to reformat it.

A bit disappointing to see the lack of Metroidvania titles in recent years. Shantae is excellent, but AeternoBlade doesn't feel quite right.

I tried Final Fantasy Explorers only to discover it's a Monster Hunter knockoff.

However, thanks to Homebrew it at least provides Sam & Max on the go.

Yeah, FF Explorers is hot garbage. Get SMT IV/Apocalypse and EO 4.

I played a bit of SMT4, feels kinda odd to me still, especially compared to the others. Not as smooth as SMT3. Plus I kinda want to do the All Endings play through to max out the worthless bonuses it grants for Apocalypse.

Haven't tried Etrian Odyssey, yet. I'm wondering if Rune Factory is worth my time. I have a lot to catch up on.

I think this guy wrote an entire article on why men are playing video games instead of working just so he could rant about rubber-banding in Mario Kart.

I assume this exists because of Lyrai holding whoever's responsible for making this kind of decision at gunpoint with a ransom demand of this becoming a thing.

They should localize Seiken Densetsu 3 as Final Fantasy Adventure 2

Mad Catz is filing for chapter 7.

That would have been fine and expected a decade ago when they were putting out crap, but it's a pity to see it happen after they started releasing quality products.

Game review site Brash Games doesn't pay its writers, and removes their bylines if they quit. Boy, couldn't have possibly foreseen that leading to any Streisand Effect.

Two takeaways:

1. Never, ever work for exposure.
2. If you're scamming people into working for exposure, taking away their exposure is probably not your smartest course of action.

I'm curious as to whether this bad publicity will be enough to force Brash Games to change its name.

The guy who owns it is named Paul Ryan, so he, at least, is largely insulated from people being able to find dirt on him in a Google search.

I hear there are some people out there who are very concerned with ethics in game journalism. They should really do something about this.
