My Wii had been collecting dust, until my cheapo Madworld purchase and New Super Mario Bros. Now this looks like a Metroid I could get behind.

Took a break from my large painting to do a little Batwoman creature. She’s been the most fun on the larger painting and I wanted to play with her again. Available at Etsy
So over on Joystiq they have the news that Nintendo’s next machine is a 3-d Nintendo Ds. A portable 3-d system seems almost as far fetched as when Nintendo announced a 2 screen touch screen game boy. It’s hard to remember but most of the gaming masses, thought that was absurd then. But now who doesn’t own a DS or know someone who does? Some interesting bits from the press release. Backwards Compatible with all DS and DSI games is a plus. No glasses required is probably the biggest thing to me. If they can really pull off 3-d without glasses, then I gaurantee you some of the major television makers will be calling Nintendo headquarters in Japan, for the liscensing rights. Everything is pointing to 3d as the next must have thing in home entertainment, and one of the major consumer problems has been the cost, and the use of glasses. One problem solved. Now we will have to wait to E3 June 15th-17th, for the official news.
I can’t help but remember the last time Nintendo released a 3-d system, the results were less than spectacular.
