If you’ve been following Ryan on Twitter, you might have noticed his mild interest in the release of Mass Effect 3. This isn’t the first time it has reached into the comic domain, and it might not be the last.

Nintendo finally announced the next Pokemon portable game, and I’m a bit surprised that the unstoppable, system selling series is staying on the DS instead of moving on up to the 3DS. Nobody is explaining why this is Black and White 2 instead of entirely new colors either, but I assume the to oddities are related. If the sequels use the same basic game engine with a new story and a few new characters, I wouldn’t fall over with surprise.

I guess it’ll be a while longer before Nintendo uses the power of the Pokemon to sell 3DS systems.
