There was a time, so many years ago now, when it felt like we had too much Metroid. The simultaneous launch of Prime and Fusion in 2002, followed up with another one-two volley of Metroids two years later. “Slow down!” we cried. “We can’t keep up with all this Metroid!”
We’re not entirely sure why six years into the 3DS’ life cycle Nintendo decided to inject life into an aging platform that features outdated hardware from the start. But here we are, and admittedly there are a lot of old 3DS games worth playing, so let’s make the best of it.
Tiny Tim or Little Timmy might not get their Nintendo 3DS for Christmas this year. The handheld console is facing a shortage in brick and mortar stores across the country and online.

Portable gaming is Nintendo's wheelhouse: it pioneered the category with the Game Boy, reinvented it with the Nintendo DS, and uses its current generation, the Nintendo 3DS, to help pay the bills in the wake of underwhelming Wii U sales.

Following a recent across the board price drop to $100, Amazon is taking another 40 dollars off the price of the Moto X for AT&T subscribers, and $50 off for Verizon users. This the best Android phone for most people, and even if you're enamored by today's reveal of the Nexus 5, this is quite a bit cheaper.
Behold the new Nintendo 2DS! Its oversized slim wedge shape looks awkward but, according to Kotaku it's "more evenly balanced than the 3DS, making the overall feel of holding the unit comfortable." Unlike the foldable 3DS, the 2DS has no 3D display. It's really weird.
Nyko's new 3DS accessories are both excellent and horrible reminders of the way we live now.
The Nintendo 3DS is pretty great. A solid enough 3D screen with no goofy glasses. We need more stuff like that if 3D is going to take over our living room. And MIT agrees, but they think they got an even better way to push out glasses-free 3D.
Just one week after buying a 3DS, this guy felt compelled to get a tattoo on his wrist to commemorative his love for Nintendo's latest plaything. Rather than a little sketch of Mario or Link, he got an augmented reality tatt that can be read by his 3DS, as you can see in the video below.

With three cameras, iFixit reckons "this is the most camera-laden device we've ever taken apart," but what exactly is inside that Japanese 3DS? As we know, it uses two cameras for recording 3D, but also displays 3D footage through a parallax barrier layer.
That's the question everyone keeps asking Kotaku's Brian Ashcraft, who bought a 3DS on the Japanese launch day. You can read all about his battery findings here: [Kotaku]
Along with the charger, manual and 3DS, Nintendo's next packaging will have a little something extra—six cards with popular Ninty characters' likenesses depicted. These aren't just for sticking on your fridge door, oh no no no. Hold the 3DS camera up in front of them when playing one of the bundled AR games, and…
