Never played Mole Mania but it looks fun. I haven't played Wario Land in over 10 years but I might get it.

Planet Crashers, though... it looks like an N64 game. Obviously graphics aren't everything, but it really looks bad.

when was the last time you looked at an n64 game?

It may invite the comparison, but it doesn't look like an n64 game. To put it nicely I'd say it's stylized.

From your screenshot comparison, I'd agree even more now that it looks like an N64 game.

For one thing, the Banjo screenshot looks a lot sharper than anything running on actual N64 hardware ever looked...that screenshot is either from an emulator, or from the XBLA version.

The other screenshot looks pretty much how N64 games looked at the time, though part of that might be because the screenshot has been blown up to twice its native resolution.

Agreed. Definitely looks worse blown up, but I watched the trailer on the eShop and the animations, textures, etc - everything looks kinda muddy and washed out. If it got glowing reviews, then I'd probably be interested because graphics don't make or break a game for me. Obviously they don't have the budget of a retail release, but after playing some downright pretty 3DS games, it's a harder sell.

That Banjo shot is from the XBLA version. The shininess gives it away.

I beat Wario Land. Still my favorite Game Boy game. It has so much personality.

Suddenly this week they've reverted back to only doing two games. I was so certain they were doing to release those two Sonic games this week, since they're supposed to be a part of the VC summer promotion...wonder what happened there.

I need someone to help talk me into / out of spending coins on 3D Classics: Excitebike.

PRO: It was originally offered for free, but before I had a 3DS, so it would be filling that gap of free game I missed out on.

PRO: What else am I going to spend coins on? The only other games I'm interested in and have been waiting to show up as a reward are 3D Classics: Kirby's Dreamland, Metroid II, and Pushmo.

PRO: Nostalgia...I played this quite a bit as a kid in the 80s.

CON: It's a sh***y game.

Excitebike 3D is fun but you will quickly lose interest. I haven't clocked more than 3 hours on my purchased copy. Save your coins for something more exclusive. You can always purchase this later.

I don't see Pushmo as a club game. It never went on sale during the summer when nearly all the launch era eshop games did.

Metroid 2 was a gold reward so it might make it into a regular rotation.

Hell it's only 150 coins. I'm considering it. Not like we're going to get leaps and bounds better than this. You'll probably see Urban Champion again before something you actually want.

Eh, don't forget that Donkey Kong and Picross were both put up as Club Nintendo downloads, so I'm sure there'll be some solid games again.

Not sure if it's out for sure or not for everyone, (might be) I know that it showed up for sure when I changed my system clock to reflect the east coast timezone

It took me about 10-15 minutes to download it, so that was the only part of the process that was any different than most other games I've gotten from the eShop. The only issue I had is since it requires more space than most games, about 2250 blocks, I deleted all of the space that Nintendo Video took up to have the space available.

For me about 35 mins, which hearing 10-15 mins has me wondering. I have a 80-90Mb down connection.

I don't believe my internet connection is nearly that good, so I don't know why your download was much longer than mine.

Updated the "Coming Soon" list. Check out that Fractured Soul game...looks a little different from most eShop releases. But that price, yikes.

Still no sign of the Sonic 8-Bit Summer games.

The Pokedex 3D Update should be out tomorrow, since they're going to take it off soon for the Premium Pokedex. It will allow people to get the remaining Pokemon they need for it without much hassle.

EDIT: It's an in-game update, so you have to fire it up, go to the Menu, scroll down and hit Update.

Retro Pocket coming in a few weeks: apparently someone didn't realize that the only appeal of Game & Watch games are either nostalgia or historical value, and decided to create a set of brand new mini games in that style.

Pretty disappointed they aren't pumping out more VC games. They have so many great GB, GBC, and GBA games to choose from, the slow trickle of games makes me think they don't like money.

Japanese shop got one already apparently.

And Crashmo was announced. I'm so happy about that.
