    Nintendo conference brings a pink 3DS, ‘Kid Icarus’ delays and some good news for ‘Monster Hunter’ fans

    Oh, Nintendo, you’re still such a rebel. You don’t need no stinkin’ Tokyo Game Show, do you? You do your own thing before everyone else, and people just have to deal with it. This morning (well, Japan’s morning, anyway) saw quite a bit of interesting news. I’ll hit it in bullet form, if you don’t mind. (My less-than-rudimentary remembrance of college Japanese classes did come in handy.) Apparently, enough women aren’t playing the 3DS. What do we do to fix that? Release a pink one, of course. It goes on sale in Japan on October 20. Kid Icarus: Uprising‘s been delayed. Again. What was supposed to be a launch title for the 3DS is now coming out in 2012. Maybe it’s secretly for Wii U. 3D video capture is on the way for the system! Nintendo showed off some very odd video to accompany that. You may be able to

    Missoni for Target launches and crashes

    Fashionistas everywhere woke up early to hit the Target website today. The Missoni collection officially went on sale today and promptly crashed the site. Unfortunately those going to brick and mortar stores may not fair any better. There are reports of people online since 2am and just filling their cart with as much merchandise as they can. Probably not in the manner of keeping, but for re-selling at a marked up price on Ebay. The collection that includes everything from signature zig-zag print sweaters for $44.99 and silk scarves for $19.99 to iPad covers and furniture. This photo makes me sad. As someone that wanted to purchase a pair of shoes and a dress, this is just disgusting to witness: Target Missoni picture. Target’s press release stated that the sale will go through October. But will that mean they will refill what’s been sold? Will we get another chance to
