Drylands: “Rid thy S.U.B. of these phallic junglefruit at once!”

Nintendo, Sony and iOS: handheld games

    When Nintendo cut the price of the 3DS by 32 percent last July, just four months after the console’s release and lukewarm reception, some felt ready to proclaim dedicated handheld gaming dead and name the smartphone as killer.
