…huh? Oh. I just got Animal Crossing: New Leaf for the 3DS. I can’t stop playing it, so there’s not going to be a Retro Wrap-Up this week. Sorry.

…oh, fine. Here’s what the Operation Rainfall Retro blah blah blah whatever here’s some videos.

Here are the highlights of this past week.

We were going to have this week’s Downpour Podcast available, but some site errors happened. Luckily, you can check out the “lost” episodes right now on YouTube.

After a supposed leak about AckkStudio’s Y2K project, the developer stepped forward to debunk the rumor.

Steve Baltimore reviews Class of Heroes 2 for the PSP, Brad Williams reviews Gunpoint for the PC and Phil Schipper reviews Tales of Symphonia for the Gamecube in this week’s Games of the Past review.

Dragon Quest X is coming to the PC in Japan later this year.

Justin Graham reviews Akira in this week’s Anime of the Past. He also talks about why the search for the “Citizen Kane of Video Games” is pretty silly.

Square Enix revealed more information about both Kingdom Hearts III and Final Fantasy XV.

Andy Na takes a look at Aeterno Blade and Jeff Neuenschwander takes a look at Harvest in this week’s installments of Crowdfunding Spotlight.

Finally, Index Corporation, the parent company of Atlus, has filed for bankruptcy. The North American division will be fine for now, though.

    “So, you wanna swap fossils with me later?” Ah, so that’s what the kids are callin’ it these days.

  • Did anyone else not notice in the first commercial that the guy at the end uses the line “Winter’s coming soon…..” can’t watch and not think of Game of Thrones.

    Still the line has the best follow up “should I buy pants for that?”

    Classic advertising Nintendo!
