Yet Another Great Scene Update To Enjoy On Your Nintendo 3DS Handheld!

Nintendo scene developer 'bubble2k16' is back with a wonderful new update to his VirtualNES emulator for playing Classic NES games on your OLD3DS or 2DS, something that big 'N' only officially allows on their New Nintendo 3DS (the more recent faster model)
For some reason Nintendo decided you needed to buy the Newer N3DS if you wish to play old NES ROM's via their costly Virtual Console, but thanks to 'bubble2k16', that is no longer the case, you can enjoy playing your 'backup ROM cartridge' files on all models of 3DS from the older Classic 3DS version to the non-foldable 2DS version, and you can launch it via CIA install or Homebrew launcher.

Introducing the bespoke Dock Sock

The industrious community on Etsy will take any opportunity to fill a perceived need, and friends do we ever need the Dock Sock.
After almost 3 weeks of people complaining about the 'broken' Left Joy-Con, big 'N' finally stepped up to the plate and is offering everyone a 'piece of foam' to fix their 'desyncing' issues, but still big 'N' will not admit that their hard plastic DOCK is roughing up their cheap plastic SCREEN, and as such, people are looking for ways to 'prevent damage', and so far the best solution has been the 'Dock Sock' :)

Foam on the range

While Nintendo remains mostly mum on the issue of some left Joy-Con controllers becoming desynced from the Switch console, it appears it has a solution for those affected.
Originally, big 'N' told everyone with 'Lefties' problems to stop playing behind their giant fish tank, but it seems the REAL problem has now been discovered, there is tiny piece of 'conductive' foam missing from some batches of 'Left' Joy-Con's and Nintendo is kind enough to offer replacements for FREE giving you your 'Foam on the range' you were missing, so you can go back to both hands on the Joysticks! :)

“The situation has drastically changed”

Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, the “Igavania” game from Koji Igarashi, is no longer coming to Wii U, Igarashi announced today in a Kickstarter update. That version has been canceled in favor of a Nintendo Switch version.
Since the Nintendo Wii U Console is basically R.I.P. the developers behind Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, think it would be best to stop their existing efforts on Wii U, and regroup and focus instead of the newly launched Nintendo Switch for all their KS Backers instead.
