Forward Compatible Podcast: Nintendo 3DS Talk

By Mases Hagopian, January 2, 2014 2

It took a couple years, but the entire team at Forward Compatible has now acquired a Nintendo 3DS and this weeks featured topic talks about our experiences with the console. We end up talking about the library of games, the brand new Nintendo 2DS, a possible 2DS Lite, and future games we are looking forward to. We also end up having a competition to see who can name more of the Top 25 3DS games from a listing from an online gaming website. We end the discussion talking about the future for Nintendo as a whole, whether a new handheld or Nintendo home console will eventually come out, or perhaps a handheld/home console hybrid.
