It's the last stand of the Wii U and 3DS Nintendo eShops this week, as the stores are set to close on the 27th (but you really should be prepared for things to close sooner than that). What does this mean for game preservation, and the ethics of someone wanting to play one of these soon to be unavailable titles? We discuss that as well as the highlights of the catalogs still available for one more week for these systems.
