Most of you who are playing EarthBound on the Wii U are experiencing it all over again as a replay, but I'm glad to see that some people are diving into it for the very first time. It's a superb game that everyone needs to play, and I really hope that those of you who don't have a Wii U who someday end up with one will check it out. I'm not replaying it as I also do not yet have a Wii U, but I'm sure I'll get back to it once I have the console and need something to fill a lull in my gaming schedule. In the meantime, I always have my original Super NES game pak on which to rely.
Speaking of Nintendo, last week the company announced a curious addition to its 3DS line of products: the Nintendo 2DS, a tablet-like, hinge-less take on the 3DS that lacks the actual 3D visual element. Sporting a cheaper price tag and a child-friendly design, the 2DS has been hailed as everything from a great idea to a solution in search of a problem. What's your take on the 2DS? Are you interested in buying one? Or are you just shaking your head? Let's hear your thoughts.
