Neal and Patrick sleuth it up in this latest issue of Connectibites News Digest (yes, we have a name courtesy of The Famicast's James Charlton) as they try to figure out the case of the missing Capcom 3DS and Wii U games at E3.

Next, they try to get to the bottom of Pikmin 2's June release in North America, while wrestling with the demons of Xenoblade's unreported North American sales numbers. After they solve the mystery of Order Up's North American delay to eShop, they talk about Jason Rohrer's Kickstarter and posit how trite LEGO Lord of the Rings sounds. Neal brings up the Nintendo-published Wii U and 3DS title LEGO City Stories in the eleventh hour, leading to a possible E3 sequel where the boys find out where the game has been since being announced during Nintendo's press conference last year.

If you have any other crimes that need solving (or any comments/critiques/questions), feel free to write in. We love to hear from you.

So I'm not the only one who's been wondering what happened to LEGO City Stories.  I thought it was just me.

Thanks for your thoughts and updates!

Wait a minute.  Thats the Connectivity theme...  I'm thinking Hardrock Anthem for Connectibites :P

Eventually, we'll have an original Connectibites theme. For now, just be happy Patrick and I get these out as fast as we do. :)

When reading this what I immediately thought was the original US Yu-Gi-Oh theme with Move and Dual being replaced by News and Yu-Gi-Oh being replaced by Connect-i-bites.

So the words would end up being.

Your news!
Your news!
It's time for ne-ne-ne-ne-news-news-news-news!
Connect-I-Bites! (-Bites! -Bites! -Bites!)
Your news!
NWR is Nintendo News Source !
It's time to ne-ne-ne-ne-news-news-news-news!

I probably only use a segment of it.

If you sing it, I'll make the backing track.

Bravo on the HIMYM reference.
