So, Mario’s Picross has been discounted to $2.99 today. Yep. We went from Mighty Switch Force!, a game that every 3DS owner needs to have, being discounted to $3 to…Mario’s Picross. I mean, it isn’t bad per se. There’s just not a whole lot to say about it. There are certainly worse things on the eShop to spend your money on.

In other news, Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters was also released on the eShop this week for $3.99. This is the only Kid Icarus game I haven’t played so far. Considering that I didn’t like Kid Icarus on the NES at all, I’m hoping this one is at least slightly better.
