Still, I think Adam and I found a few good topics to hit on during the show. The image above is a game we touch on and would both love to see on the 3ds. Thank you everyone for sticking with us and continuing to listen. Our numbers have been way up lately and we have you to thank for it. So click HERE to listen and please review us on iTunes.

There’s A Hang Glider In Mariokart 3DS

Nintendo had a pretty good E3 with tons of new stuff announced. There’s so much to talk about and we should have a wrap up show later this week. I am personally excited for many of the titles announced and of course for Wii U. If I have one complaint, it’s gotta be the lack of Wii games announced at the show. As far as the hang gliding in Mariokart, I know it’s a minor tweak to the overall formula, but it still made me smile and got me interested in Mariokart again. I’ll talk more in depth on this and all the other titles announced with Adam later this week. Until then we would love to hear about your impressions of Wii U and the show in general. Hit us up with a email or a comment and give us some show material!

DSi to 3DS Transfer Complete

After having to restart the transfer process; because my DSi lost internet connection, I know have all my DSiWare on my 3DS. Don’t worry you can restart, it picks up right where it left off. I’ll admit I was freaking out at first when I first noticed my DSi wasn’t transferring any more. Despite that little inconvenience it was still one of the neatest experiences I have had with a Nintendo product.

Things to remember: you have to update both the 3DS and the DSi you are transferring from, you have to download the Nintendo 3DS transfer Tool from the DSi Shop in the Free section, and it takes a while to accomplish all of this, but after the transferring begins, it is made enjoyable watching your Cave Story save files get deleted.

Speaking of Cave Story, that is the first game I tried out on the 3DS. The system’s speaker make that music sound so great, but be sure to hold start or select when starting the game because in my humble opinion; it just doesn’t look right in the 3DS’s stretched out blurring.

CAVE STORY!

Nintendo 3DS 6/6 (barely, CST) Update, First Impressions

Nintendo eShop channel replace the White Knuckles video.

There is a talking shopping bag, if he doesn’t have a name I’m calling him Bilbo Bag.

I am going to receive notifications from eShop, let’s hope it’s more frequent than the Wii Shop and Nintendo Channels on the Wii.

I can log into my Club Nintendo Account! I wanted this so much!

Loading screen is bouncing bags, really nice looking; as is all things Nintendo channel really.

At the bottom of the touch screen it lists popular searches and popular titles.

Tax rates! That is not making me a happy camper. Have fun with not dealing with that Brad.

Bilbo Bag shows up in the downloading screen. Balls hanging from a wire drop into the icon of whatever you are downloading and fill it like a box. After the download finishes you can view a receipt. I tried but an error occurred

I tried to view more information on Super Mario Land, an error occurred. This will probably get ironed out.

Navigation is easy, more information is available at one time than on the Wii or DSi. There is a tab for “Staff Picks”, it’s Cave Story so I am not complaining. There are also tabs like, DSi Favorites, 2-Player Games, Mario, and Strategy Games (which remineded me I need to download Mighty Milky Way). There is also a coming soon tab, when you click on the more information option it may look like it just displays screen shot, but use your stylus to pull up more information like number of players, genre, and features; hopefully video will be added at some point. I like it a lot.

The Rating system for games you have played for more than an hour is very much like the rating system within the Nintendo Channel on the Wii. I rated my favorite 3DS game so far, Samurai Warriors.

YOU HAVE TO UPDATE YOUR DSi BEFORE YOU CAN PERFORM THE DATA TRANSFER!

Then you have to download the Nintendo 3DS Transfer Tool from the DSi Shop.

Let the transfer begin! PIKMIN! This had got to be one of my favorite all time Nintendo experiences. Seriously! I’m not exaggerating.
