Going down, down, down!

In just 6 short months, Nintendo has issued a price drop for the 3DS (Now the title is a lot more clever). The new price is $80 cheaper then before, with an MSRP of $169.99 as of August 12.
Those who were early adopters of the system receive 20 downloadable titles (10 GBA, 10 NES) before year's end.

This move is probably brought on by the PSVita, who matched 3DS' original $250 price tag, along with Nintendo's falling profits.
3DS' will be sold at a loss now, but with so many purchasers, hopefully this will give the kick the 3DS needs (although more games would be nice)to finally be successful.

(Insert Preffered Ressurection Item Here)

Back from a long absence, I'd like to announce that I'll be working on Game Deals n' News once more.
As the lazy bag o' bones I am, I might have the regular updates as much as before, but I'll do my best to hit highlights, as well as some obscure pieces of personal interest.
I'd like to kick it off by presenting an old article of The NY Times (21st, to be exact), that's a whopping 6 pages dedicated to Dwarf Fortress here:

The Brilliance of Dwarf Fortress

Now, I myself have difficulty, like many others, getting into the game in the first place, but I certainly admire everything that Tarn puts into the game.
