GameStop Sets Up Shop On Facebook

If you're a fan of both social networking and video games then GameStop is giving you the best of both worlds by bringing their store to Facebook. Yep, you heard that right.

"Look, Ma! The Bear Ate My Nintendo 3DS!"

Those are probably words that you'd never want to hear your child ever say to you, especially if you're touring a national park or a zoo. Fortunately, we're not talking about a real bear. What we're talking about is this adorable and amazingly fluffy case for your Nintendo 3DS.

It's an entertaining game for the iPhone and iPod Touch that doesn't require a whole of thinking but a whole lot of pig shooting. All that tumbling makes for one unfortunate and constantly dizzy pig.

Pretty much everyone played snakes and ladders as a kid.  Kids today continue to enjoy this very old game, but can now put themselves right in the action.  The Snakes and Ladders Lawn Game is the same basic game on a giant scale.
