A number of games have been removed from the Wii U eShop

See to see U go

Not that long ago, Nintendo removed a bunch of DSiWare games from the DSi Shop, but we never learned why. Shortly after, most of those games returned to the service.

A few weeks later, we've found out that a number of Wii U games have been removed from the Wii U eShop. We don't know if this situation is different from the DSiWare games or not, so they may not be coming back. Here's the titles that have up and vanished without a trace.

- Super Meat Boy
- Chomp Chomp Party
- Color Symphony 2
- Dodge Club Party
- Electronic Super Joy: Groove City
- Factotum
- FreezeME
- Gaiabreaker
- Kick & Fennick
- psyscrolr
- Regina & Mac
- Replay: VHS is not dead
- Shadow Puppeteer
- Star Ghost
- Temple of Yog
- The Beggar’s Ride
- The Bridge

Game Boy Advance SP mod takes out the hinge for a more classic Game Boy feel

Never looked better!

Nintendo had a few different iterations of the Game Boy Advance, but they never had one as gorgeous as this! The modders
at BoxyPixel were inspired by the original Game Boy when creating this GBA SP mod, which takes the clamshell design of the GBA SP and flattens it out permanently.

The best part about this mod is that you can purchase one! BoxyPixel is selling the "Unhinged" kit for $94, but obviously, you'll need a bit of know-how to put this together. If you're feeling brave, you can order everything you need here.

Twitter Plays Pokemon manages to beat Pokemon Red

Twitter became the very best

There were plenty of setbacks and challenges along the way, but it happened. Everyone who participated in Twitter Plays Pokemon helped Red on his journey to become the very best.

The Twitter Plays Pokemon experiment ran for 40 days, and it took over 90k comments, but Pokemon Red was beaten in the end. There were moments when it seemed like progress was impossible, but the community persisted and turned things around. Now the question is...what Pokemon game will they play next?!

Thanks to ArmoredFrog for the heads up!
