Seems like Suda51 saw Frozen, played Dark Souls, and then got the lyrics mixed up.

The only thing that stops the dust is the rain. It’s a sweet reprieve, but there is no middle ground. The land is either as dry as the Betty Ford clinic, or as wet as the ocean floor. Everything can be seen from the ridge overlooking Armadillo as John Marston gently bounces along atop...


Nintendo 3DS Hardware And Software (Pokémon) Chew Up Sales Charts In October

Posted on Thursday, November 14 @ 17:30:00 PST by

With October, Nintendo 3DS has held down the top-spot in video game hardware sales for six straight months, moving over 450,000 units of dual-screened (or mono-screened) portable heaven. I don't think you need even two guesses to find the answer to October's top-selling software.

Both Pokémon X & Y sold more than 1.7 million units combined and I'm sure that number included more than a few fresh 3DS owners who've been waiting patiently for the next chapter in their favorite series.

Just... I mean, come on. I understand if you'll never buy a 3DS because you wouldn't have the time to enjoy a portable or you prefer your PC or you big screen TV. Totally get it, but at least admit how enviable 3DS owners have been for all the software this year. I can't believe that 2013 actually started with Fire Emblem: Awakening.

Then there was Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon (review), Animal Crossing: New Leaf (review), Shin Megami Tensei IV (review), October's Pokémon games (review), and November's Mario Party (review incoming), and fantastic Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds (review). If your significant other, parents, dog, roomie, whoever scoffed at your proposal to buy a new next-gen console to share (of course), try the 3DS at half the price and overflowing with amazing games.

Or, you know, try the new Wii U console after seeing the latest Wii U commercial. Microsoft and Sony will certainly move hardware this fall, but I think Nintendo 3DS can claim 2013 with this impressive streak.
