Say, why couldn’t Jiji speak at the end?
Smash Bros. ruining Circle Pads ⊟
Ack, these look awful. Either these people were going too hard on their Circle Pads, or the controls just aren’t built to take the punishment Smash Bros. demands (especially after that rubber slider endured years of use).
These photos were posted on the day Smash Bros. released in Japan, ending their owners’ fun real quick. Perfect excuse to get a New 3DS, I guess! Or take advantage of Nintendo’s usually generous customer service/warranty coverage.
Also, I haven’t seen any other reports of this, but at least one of our readers reported having his 3DS bricked after downloading the Smash Bros. demo. Hope that was just a freak accident!
Three campus police departments in Maryland now own surplus military gear including “riot type” shotguns, M16 assault rifles and an armored truck under a Defense Department program that’s sparked new controversy this month.
I kinda got back into Zelda this year, so I made this pair of posters to commemorate it. They look really good printed at their full size of 12x18! I’m planning on selling prints of them at SPX this year, so if you want a copy for your own, that’ll be the place to be!
NES, Smash, and Persona Q 3DS XLs announced ⊟
Nintendo of America announced three (!) special edition 3DS XLs today! The Smash Bros. system releases in red and blue on September 19, the NES edition hits on October 10, and the Persona Q portable comes out on November 25.
Please note that all of them are priced at $199.99 and do not include a bundled game, even though two of them are branded with specific titles. Also, all of them will be exclusive to GameStop. Ughhhhhhhhhhh.
It is time!
From across the country and across the globe and across town, the best and brightest in independent comics are descending on the unlikely location of Bethesda, Maryland (ok, North Bethesda. OK, fine maybe it’s Rockville you pedants, you’re messing up my point), which is the ancestral home of the Small Press Expo, which turns 20 years old in 2014.
And, if I may say, we have quite a party in store for you all this weekend.
The good news is, you’re ALL INVITED!
23,000 square feet of comics await you! 280 tables, 700 cartoonists!
