The Nintendo eShop for the Wii U and 3DS id back up and running after being down. Nintendo has confirmed that it is back up and that they will continue to monitor the situation. This is what Nintendo had said on their facebook page regarding to the doen time;

"Thank you very much for your patience while we perform maintenance on the Nintendo eShop and Nintendo Network. We sincerely appreciate your ongoing support. We wanted to share some details on what is causing this downtime, and update you on the current outage in service.

The initial outage was primarily caused by a one-time surge in demand over the recent holidays, compounded by the following:

1) An influx of new Nintendo Network accounts being created and accessing the Nintendo eShop.
2) Existing Nintendo 3DS account information being moved to new Nintendo Network accounts.

We are continuing to adjust our network to meet the needs of all our services and applications. To ensure our global audience has an expected level of consistency in service, we took the Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS offline. We expect to have it back online no later than 4 a.m. ET on Dec. 29, but may have to perform more maintenance in the future.

We truly apologize for the inconsistencies in our online services. We are working hard around the clock to fully restore these functions, and will continue to keep you updated on our progress."

GameStop has listed Bayonetta 2 with a May 1st release date. However, Nintendo and Platinum Games have yet to mentioned a release date. Could this be another mistake by GameStop?

It's very simple to download project M. All it consists of is basically downloading the files and placing them on an SD card. You don't have to do a single thing to your wii or brawl disk for this to even work.

You'll obviously need a Super Smash Brothers Brawl game disk and an SD card)

Step 1. Make sure your SD card has nothing on it and make sure that you have deleted every custom made stage on brawl.

Step 2. Click here and the files you need should automatically begin to download. If not, go here and click on the "Hackless Wii Zip (Full Set)".

Step 3. After it finishes downloading unzip the folder that just downloaded and take the folders contents and put them over onto your SD card. (Do not just copy over the folder, only whats in the folder.)

Step 4. Now insert it into your wii and launch up brawl and head back over to the stage builder which you previously just deleted every custom stage. Now it will load up and only press on "Launch Game".

Best deal yet for getting your hands on a Nintendo 3DS XL. Originally priced at $199.99 the handheld is now going for only $149.99 all week at Target.

Nintendo of America tweeted the following:

" Score! All Nintendo #3DS XL systems are $149.99 in-store at @Target this week!"

So just around the start of the month Nintendo released Miiverse on the Nintendo 3DS. Miiverse started out on the Wii U and it's  popularity since then has grabbed it's attention to the 3DS owners.

Now that Miiverse is in my possession I'm going to share my thoughts on it.
Miiverse let's players discuss anything involving the games on both Nintendo platforms through communities. Essientially it's like Twitter, kind of. I really enjoy how organized everything is. Once you get the hang of the layout you will instantly get hooked on it, like I did, maybe.

The entire Miiverse community is helpful and friendly at all times. But, there's always that one smartass that comes in and ruins the fun for everyone.
Miiverse is fairly strict, unfortunately, but keep in mind that the younger demographic is on Miiverse too.

You can't exchange Friend Codes or your post will be deleted by an administrator.

I was finally able to get myself to sit down and install Project M. A surprisingly simple process that takes no less than a minute. (Excluding the download time which roughly took about 10-15 minutes. Depends on the power of your computer)
You can find more information about Project M on their website. Without further ado, let's get to the review.

After the insanely simple installation, Project M (Project Melee) gave Super Smash Brothers Brawl a complete makeover. Decking out the character rooster with new inclusions of Roy and Mewtwo and countless new skins for almost about every character.

It updated the stages and added new one's such as Dracula's Castle and Skyloft. There's also the Training Room which all of these stages are completely new and original Project M stages.

What I like about the updated stages is they basically redesigned them. An example of that is Rumble Falls where they made the stage stationary instead of being a vertical moving stage.

More stages from the previous games are also included. Saffron City and Hyrule Castle from Super Smash Brothers on the Nintendo 64 also see the light of day.
The two new characters that weren't in Brawl, Mewtwo and Roy, are exactly the same as they were from Melee. The only thing that was updated on their movesets were their final smashes. Also Mewtwo's skin is noticeably updated. Both of them fit perfectly into the game and don't standout among the other characters as Melee characters.
Turbo Mode, which is accessable by going to Special Brawl (and also a new in battle item), is a brand new mode Project M added in the game. Essentially you can perform combo attacks.

Whenever you pause the game during a battle you can move the camera angle freely. Which wasn't possible at all in Brawl. It's perfect when wanting to get those picture perfect screenshots of the battle.

One of my favorite things about Project M is that you can play against your friends online that also have Project M installed.

There's ALOT to cover regarding what Project M fixes. Everything that I have said is the most noticeable changes in the game.

Now I would like to take the time to personally thank the Project M developer for letting fellow Smash players have access to Project M absolutely free.

Yesterday, December 12th, a patch for Pokemon X and Y was released. You can get the updated version from the Nintendo 3DS eShop. Here's what that patch fixes:
Fixes an occasional bug causing Pokémon not to learn new moves after evolving through Wonder Trade. Fixes an occasional bug where certain captions for Trainer PR Videos were not unlocked in Lumiose City. Updates an Internet communication issue.
This update also includes the previous Ver. 1.1 update (released on October 25, 2013).

Prevents the occurrence of a rare issue in which players are unable to resume playing after saving their game in certain areas of Lumiose City. More info Players already affected by this issue will also be able to resume playing normally after downloading and installing this update data.

Prevents errors which sometimes occur when using certain functions of the GTS (a feature allowing players all around the world to exchange Pokémon).


Nintendo Online has reported that the 2014 spring release of Super Smash Brothers was actually a mistake. There actually hasn't been a set release date for the game.
"As we were told today, the statement about the spring release for Super Smash. Bros. was a mistake. Therefore no actual date has been set except for the year 2014. Mario Kart 8 will still be released in spring 2014."

The most recent screenshot revealed by the creator, Masahiro Sakurai, has shown what appears to be a brand new item which is called the "Steel Diver".

"Pic of the day. Q: "Is this a Steel Diver?" A: "Yes, indeed, that is a Steel Diver." The sub from Steel Diver is now a cute projectile weapon--it launches torpedoes that fly slowly at first."

Last night Cranky Kong was just recently announced and was confirmed as a playable character for the upcoming Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze for the Nintendo 3DS. Now there's supposedly a fifth playable character. During an interview Reggie hinted at the fifth playable character by stating:

"We're not going to reveal a fifth for you."

After being asked if there will be another hidden character. Could he mean that they will reveal it later on or will we have to play it ourselves to find out?

Masahiro Sakurai, series creator, revealed on Miiverse that Majora’s Mask will appear as an assist trophy in the upcoming Super Smash Bros on the Wii U and Nintendo 3DS.

"Here’s a new Assist Trophy–the Skull Kid! I repeat, it’s an Assist Trophy, not a new fighter. The characters announced on the website are the fighters."

It's no secret that I'm a huge Final Fantasy fan. Hell I even named my cat after Lightning from Final Fantasy XIII. Back in the day the Final Fantasy games were on Nintendo consoles and they were great but when Nintendo didn't make the switch to disk based games the franchise moved to the Play Station. Now Nintendo has disk based consoles yet we don't see many new Final Fantasy's for them. In all honesty it doesn't bother me at all, but I do want to know why they haven't brought any of the main titles to the Wii, Wii U, or 3DS. The only reason I could think of is legal reasons or that Nintendo's consoles are held back by it's software. I know a lot of people will be mad that I said this but Nintendo consoles are almost always a step behind in technology. Perhaps there systems just can't do what Square Enix wants. Despite this I wish that Nintendo would get something because I would like to see my favorite game company have games with my favorite game franchise again.

Reggie is opened to the idea of including him in the next Super Smash Brothers game. He has recently tweeted:

" My #FinalSmash in Super Smash Bros. would be the MY BODY IS READY SLAM #Regginator"

Reggie has also said that the series creator, Masahiro Sakurai, might consider adding him if the petition gets 100,000 signatures.

The petition has already reached over 34,000 signatures.
Reggie's final smash would be called “MY BODY IS READY SLAM.”

You can now go set yourself up with a Pre-order of Bravely Default for the Nintendo 3DS on Amazon or at Gamestop.
