      NNNXE (new) 3DS coming to America on 2/13. $199.99 Are you getting one?

      • North America ONLY getting the XL version of the (new) 3DS. “Regular” version will not be released because – “Different territories make their own business decisions regarding individual products and timing. We think New Nintendo 3DS XL makes the most sense for our market. Nintendo makes different systems at different price points for a whole range of consumers, and New Nintendo 3DS XL simply expands those choices even further.” – Source: Kotaku
      • Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D also coming on 2/13; has special 360 camera control ONLY for (new) 3DS
      • (new) 3DS XL will not ship with an AC adapter: http://www.polygon.com/2015/1/14/7547465/new-nintendo-3ds-xl-charger-ac-adapter-warranty – “Rather than raise cost of New Nintendo 3DS XL by charging consumers for a component they may already own, we are giving them the option to only buy if they need an AC adapter,” a Nintendo representative told Polygon. The spokesperson noted that the New 3DS XL is compatible with the same AC adapter used by all 2DS, 3DS, 3DS XL, DSi and DSi XL devices.” – Source: Polygon

      GAMERadio Blog ~2015 Update~

      Oh hi. 

      Yeah I know, there haven’t been many updates here since…wow, July huh? Ok, we suck.

      Sorry.

      Let’s try to do 2015 right! For the seven (7) of you that still visit this blog on an almost daily basis (yes, I see the statistics), thank you! Seeing ANY interest at all in these ramblings makes me feel good, this year I’m going to try to make this blog as decent a companion to the show as possible. This means that it SHOULD be updated every time we have a show which, as you guys know, is about twice a month these days. So the question is, can I get up off my lazy ass long enough to update at least TWICE a month?

      The answer is…maybe. 🙂 Just kidding, the answer is yes. Actually I plan to update a bit more often than that because I have a new project idea!

      I’m going to try to keep a game diary on this blog for whatever games that I happen to play; new games, old games, whatever. It’s not going to be a “let’s play” necessarily, more just random thoughts, musings and a smattering of opinion on whatever happens to be in my 3DS. Or on my Steam list or phone or whatever.

      As I only play about 3 games a year, this shouldn’t be too difficult, right? 

      In other news, there’s a Twitch account now! Two in fact! So you should probably bookmark those as this is where most of the shenanigans happen these days:

      http://www.twitch.tv/ceephour – The main account. You can catch live shows, past episodes and witness all manner of video game foolishness preformed by none other than our esteemed leader, C4. (There’s a lot of Payday 2 going on here!)

      http://www.twitch.tv/gameradioblog – ribo’s account (that’s me!). Mostly inactive due to my terrible internet connection and inability to properly stream content…this channel may become MORE active in the not too distant future (hint hint). It is here that I fail at games old and new, but mostly old and make terrible references to 80s television. Catch the excitement!

      Also feel free to follow us on twitter: @ceephour, @HWHQNewfie, @the_ribo

      And as always you can join us on IRC.OFTC.NET, THE CHANNEL IS #GAMER!!

      We’re going to have an exciting 2015 for you! Stay tuned!
