Seriously, if you have a Club Nintendo account, a 3DS and 100 coins, you have to give this game a shot: http://shigeruslist.com/2012/03/30/marios-picross/

I think I'm hooked on Picross in general now... bummed this didn't catch on in the U.S. back in the day.

Yeah, I played that earlier this year and it really helped me get into Nonogram puzzles.
The Mario series is the best! It has every genre in video games but RTS'! It also has a plumber who does different roles, a princess, and a lot of odd creatures who don't seem to poop!

I've never played much of the 2D Picross games but I played a buttload of Picross 3D and can confirm that it does indeed rule.

I still can't believe NOA localized Tokyo Crash Mobs and still haven't brought over the two Picross-e games from Europe.

I own the original GB cart, and I love it even though I'm absolutely terrible at it.

Sucks they won't put Super Picross or Picross 2 on the US VC.

Glad that Picross is finally getting some recognition, I love that type of puzzle. There's just something about staring blankly at a board for 15 minutes, then filling/crossing one square that cascades to solving another huge chunk of the puzzle. For whatever reason, I find Picross puzzles much easier to solve than Sudoku (not necessarily faster to solve, but easier to spot patterns). Only trouble is that I prefer the bigger grids now. When I got a book with Japanese puzzles in it, I just skipped to the last one and solved that first.
You didn't say wot wot.
