nintendogs + cats removed from 3DS eShop in North America

Looking to grab yourself a copy of nintendogs + cats? If so, you're going to have to do it via retail. Without any mention at all, nintendogs + cats has been removed from the 3DS eShop in North America. That includes all 3 versions of the game. This most likely has something to do with the Nintendo Selects lineup adding nintendogs + cats to its list of titles, but hopefully we'll see it added back soon.

Smash Bros. Brawl announcer explains how he got the job

A portion of Source Gaming interview with Brawl announcer, Pat Cashman...

SG: How’d you get the job to be Brawl’s announcer? Was there an audition process?

PC: To be honest, I don’t remember. I think I was just hired and called in without a real audition. I also have to admit that I had no real idea what I was doing…how the game worked…who’d be using it, etc…

It looked nice on my resumé to say that I was the announcer on what was one of the most popular video games on the planet—but had never actually seen it myself. For awhile I would get requests from gamers to do customized versions of the announcer for birthday greetings, etc…But I had to stop doing that because I was getting too many requests…And also I wasn’t sure I really had the right to be doing the character that fundamentally didn’t belong to me, but Nintendo.
