Microsoft is on notice, the 3DS isn't selling and Go Daddy sucks in this week's CheckPoint!

Edit: Here is a large size version of the Darksiders B Team artwork:

Surprised to see Jer not complaining about not being able to see the 3D stuff this time.

No $1000 option?? Too bad, I guess I'll just put this grand back in my wallet then.

Poor 3DS but alas, I lack the 250 bucks required to help it.

Also, Unconscious in the Darksiders B-team is cute, I just wanna give her a big hug.

Today's main story wasn't as funny as the last few weeks', but maybe that is because the 3DS is just SO BORING. And so bad! Nintendo why are you breaking my heart?!

But it was more than made up for by the amazing Darksiders B-Team art. Kathleen they are SO ADORABLE. I haven't even played the game and I want a full-time comic series for this bunch. They're so dysfunctional and wacky!

Hilarious as always.

Was that Kirby's Epic Yarn set to Modern Warfare sounds? Because I haven't played either of those games, yet that was probably the funniest bit for me.

Which just goes to show, you don't actually have to know what's going on to laugh at what you presume is a joke. It's how I've faked my way through life.

I tried that once, but they kicked me out of the funeral.

if they want to make the 3DS more successful maybe they should lower the price?

Well in CANADA at least they're only $199.99 (currently):
Clicky

I'm tempted with this price actually...

the asking price in the UK is £230. which, when you work out that $250 actually amounts to £155 represents a £75 markup.

apparently the british (or european) market can handle that kind of pricing. so we're being charged more because we can afford to pay more.

They're in GAME for about £150 - £180 normally, I thought?

Anyway, I love mine. It's all shiny.

yeah but that just shows that they don't sell for the recommended price. i saw an advert for asda this morning where the price had been slashed from £197 to £169. if they were selling well the prices wouldn't have to come down so far.

More price cuts and free games (if you buy before the price cut) in the States.

I'm not sure how many people would be convinced to buy the console pre-August 12th because of those games (cuz I'm sure that was the other reason for them). I feel like the $80 drop is a better deal than 20 new games.

Mostly cuz I don't want any of them.

Just found these three connected stories on PCGamer. Any one of them would be a great story for Checkpoint. together you've more or less got a whole episode, complete with round table discussion:

Figured he'd be gloating smugly, given the story's nature.
