3DS Rumored to include achievements, friend lists.

In an interview from Nintendo’s E3 website, EA’s Ryan Stradling has revealed that the 3DS will have achievements, friend lists, and possibly voice chat. It isn’t known whether Mr. Stradling was talking about EA games only, or 3DS games as a whole. This has yet to be officially confirmed by Nintendo, however.

Paper Mario announced for 3DS.

One more title is being added to the already insanely long list of 3DS games. Paper Mario on the 3DS will be the first time the series has ever been portable. It isn’t known whether this is a new game or a remake, but judging from the screen shots, it looks to be brand new. I’ve played every Paper Mario, but I could be wrong.

Well have no fear Animal Crossing fans, as it was shown at E3. Again, there isn’t too much information, but it looks as though there are now wild animals that scamper about.

According to, Super Mario Galaxy 2 has now become the highest rated game of all time, with a total score of 97.50. Galaxy 2 barely managed to pass it’s predecessor (97.46) and Ocarina of Time (97.48) for that honor. New reviews are frequently added, so this may change in the future.
