Mash-up of Mario and Minecraft is magical
I’ve been loving the Little Big Planet skins on my PS4 copy of Minecraft, but this new development in the blocky world that Notch built has me considering getting a Wii U version, as well.
Joey Davidson (a GrE alumnus, at that!) broke the news over at TechnoBuffalo, and we couldn’t be more excited.
Why are upcoming Super Nintendo games limited to New 3DS models?
Looks like SNES classics Pilotwings, Super Mario World, and F-Zero will be available today in the Nintendo eShop.
Super Mario Kart, Earthbound, and Donkey Kong Country will be available on March 24.
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Super Metroid, and Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest will make it to your handheld on April 14th.
Why, though, will these older video games require Nintendo’s latest handheld hardware, the New 3DS and the New 3DS XL?
During today’s Nintendo Direct announcement, Nintendo said that the games will feature a “Pixel Perfect Mode,” which will let the games to be played in their original resolution. I’m unsure why “older” hardware, like the 3DS, 3DS XL and even newer 2DS won’t be able to run these games.
Is it Nintendo trying to push us to all get a New 3DS? Is there some technical reason?

Fire Emblem Fates is headed your way Friday and the reviews are in
Fire Emblem Fates, one of my most anticipated games all year (and the title that I used as a reason to purchase a new 3DS XL, even after my old one was left on a plane by my kiddo last year), is out on Friday.
The first pre-release reviews are here, and they’ve got some great things to say.
