Yes, good job on the thread.

The Game Gear pricing is interesting, because it seems to be based by brand recognition, from everyone knows what Sonic is, to some know what Shinobi is and finally to what the heck is Dragon Crystal?

I'd guess Kid Icarus 3D Classics is going to come out the 22nd or the 29th, considering Uprising is on the 23rd. I don't know about the Game Boy sequel though, since NCL doesn't feel like NA users buy old games.

thought pop cap would learn their lesson the last time they release a cart based game and then a online game

Zuma's Revenge online does not have all of the cart based has.

many people downloaded plants vs zombies and they got so many complants they sent cart verison out to people who got it day one (download)

Oh, forgot to mention that I bought Mutant Mudds over the weekend.

I can't say that I'm thrilled with the purchase thus far...

Out of the eShop specialty games I've bought so far, Pushmo, Mighty Switch Force and this, I'd say this is a step below MSF, which is 3 steps below Pushmo.

Mutt Mudd looked interesting but not very entertaining.

As for the eShop this week, eh. I wish I could hope that Crusaders of Centy could make it.

After SMB, Metroid, and Punch-Out!!, I thought maybe they'd finally start putting out NES VC games on a more regular basis, but I guess not.

I'm really surprised we haven't gotten Zelda 1 yet, since Japan got it in December.

I'd rather have classic GB games right now. I'm anxiously waiting to buy Wario Land and Kid Icarus II.

Anyone play ARC STYLE: Soccer 3D? I'm interested in playing, but don't care enough about soccer to buy a sim like PES or FIFA. Curious if Soccer 3D is fun to play.

I doodle fairly often, so this application is up my alley. Went ahead and bought it. I'll post impressions when I mess with it. IGN gave it a 9.0.

I went ahead and bought it as well. I haven't tried it yet, but I think I'll enjoy it. While my art skills are questionable at best, I enjoy doodling as much as the next guy.

I messed with the application for a while yesterday and found it surprisingly good. Switching layers and removing layers is easy, and the tools are robust. Being able to save the images to the SD card is nice, as well.

Well no new VC releases except Kirby's Block Ball is advertised as coming soon. No sign of Wario Land any time in the near future so I'm just gonna give up hope on that one and it'll somehow magically appear out of no where when I pick up interest in the 3DS again.

So anybody playing 3D Classics: Kid Icarus?

I decided to see if the game was still as impossible as it seemed when I was a kid...and that first level is still wicked hard. But when I was reading up on ways to make it easier, I discovered that it's apparently one of the few games that starts hard and gets easier -- rather than the easy-to-hard progression of, y'know, normal games -- resulting in a final level that's actually easier than the first level? Very odd.

I tried out the Pyramids demo, but wasn't super impressed.

I beat it around the time I got Uprising. After 1-2 it gets a lot more manageable. But keep in mind that this is based off the Japanese version, so there's no New Game Plus, which makes getting the best ending a lot harder.

I got it with my pre-order and was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. Gets a lot better after you get over the hump of the first few levels. Never even knew about the multiple endings.

I finally beat it!

The difficulty does easy up after the Underworld, but it's still pretty tough (unless you want to grind, which is a trade-off between tough and tedious). There were enough interesting ideas to keep me from giving up entirely before reaching the end, but at the same time there are so many poor game design decisions that were made. Granted, that's partly due to the experimental nature of the game, and the nature of experiments is that they don't all end up successes.

It's definitely a game where you have to read the manual first (or use a strategy guide)...my not having access to the manual (and GameFAQs not yet existing) would explain why it seemed straight up impossible when I was a kid. The game practically teaches you to play it incorrectly, by making you think that enemies spawn infinitely at the beginning and need to be just pushed through, unless you've read enough to know you're supposed to be trying to kill every single one in order to level up.

An Angry Birds cash-in that doesn't bother with trying to imitate Angry Birds gameplay...kind of odd. At least the price is interesting, though I doubt it will convince anyone else to set future 3DS eShop games at a similarly low price.
