The Game Boy collection on the 3DS continues to grow ever so gradually with the addition of Data East's Side Pocket, a pool game. That's "pool" as in the game about hitting numbered balls with a cue, not swimming. Nintendo also informs us that Pokedex 3D has been updated -- but not how it's been updated -- so if you're still working to fill your virtual compendium, check for that addition.

On DSiWare, there's another House MD episode and Simply Minesweeper, a version of the classic timewaster. And on WiiWare: Horizon Riders, a new rail shooter that gives you the option of controlling movement with the Balance Board.
