Nintendo hints at more surprises before the end of the year.

Please let one of those surprises be Super Nintendo games on the 3DS eShop.  In the name of all that is holy Nintendo, WHAT IS TAKING SO LONG???  The Wii U has DS games but the 3DS can’t even get GBA or Super Nintendo games???  Seriously???  Why do you consistently make your fans beg you to give you their money???

“The Nintendo holiday is off to a great start, but there’s a lot of work left to do and a few more surprises in store for our fans,” said NoA’s Scott Moffitt. “With great deals coming on Black Friday and Cyber Monday and great content like Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker launching next week, Nintendo will offer shoppers the best combination of fun and value this holiday season.”

California Congressman: At least 10 ISIS fighters apprehended at U.S.-Mexico border.

If I was an ISIS fighter trying to get into the U.S., it’s what I would do.

If they catch five or ten of them then you know there’s going to be dozens
more that did not get caught by the border patrol.

Majora’s Mask remake for 3DS might eliminate loading times.

I am so very happy Nintendo made the right decision and decided to release this game for 3DS. Majora’s Mask is a very fine piece of game design.  An already great game going to be made even better on more powerful hardware  Love this game.

The Legend Of Zelda: Majora’s Mask is constantly praised as one of the N64’s best titles, so it’s no surprise that Nintendo decided to remake it for the 3DS, following suit of Ocarina of Time 3D. Anyone who played the original Majora’s Mask remembers the constant load times whenever going to a new area of Clock Town; all those seconds wasted staring at a white screen waiting for your game to load. While nothing is confirmed, these screenshots definitely hint at those load times being eliminated, most likely due to the 3DS’s superior processing power.

Nintendo removes game from Japan e-shop after hacker discovers exploit.

Nintendo’s war with piracy and homebrew over the years is almost legendary at this point.

The 3DS game with an exploit that apparently enables homebrewed software on the handheld has been pulled, by Nintendo, from the eShop where it was for sale.

Earlier this week, a hacker showed how Cubic Ninja, by AQ Interactive (published by Ubisoft), could be used to run homebrew games, although the exploit did not enable pirated software.

Revelation of the exploit sent prices of the game soaring on the gray market, from $3 before the discovery, to listings between $40 and $500 on eBay.

Attorney General’s office contacted CBS to try and reign in former CBS journalist Sharyl Attkisson.

The one journalist in the mainstream media who is actually doing her job and holding the Obama White House accountable.  I have a lot of admiration for this woman.

Attkisson was trying to report on the Fast and Furious scandal, but claimed that the Obama administration was urging CBS to quash her stories about the topic (as well as others which made the White House uncomfortable). Naturally, many people viewed these claims as outlandish and paranoid. But as it turns out, Attkisson, who later resigned from CBS, was right.

“Her piece was really bad for AG.”

“I”m also calling Sharryl”s editor and reaching out to [CBS news correspondent Bob] Scheiffer. She’s out of control.”
