    Capcom shoots itself in foot on 3ds?

    News about resident evil mercenaries... Apparently the save is non erasable so if you resell (or want to replay) then you are stuck with your old save data, so it's basically worthless. I know one game I won't be buying...

    Nintendo 3DS

    Anyone got one? Interested? Feel it's over-hyped? :P I picked one up today (2 left in stock?!) apparently it might not be the runaway success that they were hoping. Haven't gotten any games for it yet.

    no$gba launcher

    funny google search

    Not sure how old this is or if it works on non-US google pages but I found it funny: go to and search "failure" and click the "I'm Feeling Lucky" - enjoy! =] EDIT: going to and doing it leads to another result, also funny.
