Will be picking up Lego City in cart form at some point before Splatoon 2, so I can loan it to my friend after playing it. But for now, Zelda. Always Zelda...

Nice to see another demo; Just Dance. My wife will definitely want to give the new version a try, so I suppose I will go download that later today. And I just like demos. I download all of them.

So I just realized that Boxboy 3 was supposed to be out by now. Apparently it was to launch on March 23, but then...didn't. When asked afterwards, Nintendo said that the tweet was a mistake and deleted it. No update since then. Has anything like this ever happened with Nintendo before, where a game's release date came and it just...didn't show up?

Same. It looks amazing. But I've got too many other games on my plate right now.

Graceful Explosion Machine is reviewing pretty well so far. Averaging around an 8 between 5 reviews.

I grabbed GEM. I've only played the tutorial, but it seems pretty neat.
