I think the eShop Channel is a mess. The menu changes entirely every week at least, so it's hard to find anything. I hope that anything I remove from the 3DS is downloadable again so I'm not ripped off.

That's sort of the point. Changing the setup every Thursday gives some games the spotlight one week and others the next. I think it also promotes discovery for those who don't know the DSiWare library like the back of their hand. Like they could enter the shop and just so happen to see "Strategy Games" as a category. They say "hey, I've been looking for a strategy game!" and are on their way to discovering a new game. I think it is basically implemented that way to promote window shopping which even I find myself doing from time to time. Its always fun checking out the new categories for the week IMO and miles ahead of what the Wii and DSi Shop do.

I like the fact that it changes every week.It gives other games the chance to be in the spotlight.

I agree. It's way to hard to find what you're looking for. It's like they wanted to design it like a labyrinth.
But I also somewhat like that they change it up a bit instead of having the same old interface. It kind of feels refreshing every time I go in to it. Kind of a love hate thing going on there.
But hopefully it'll get better with time.

They should have a way besides messing with the cruddy search parameters to find every game (as much as it pains me to say it, i.e. DSiWare). I shouldn't only be able to find some games by searching for them. How Nintendo's download service actually got worse in this regard is beyond me.

Yeah, not having a list of all DSiWare games available is ridiculous.

But guys, the 3DS eShop is a big step forward from the Wii Shop Channel and DSi Shop. the next step is a shared shop used on all Nintendo systems...

Whats wrong with the Wii Shop Channel? I find it to be better than the eShop in more ways than one.
Just for you.

The Wii Shop Channel is slow and harder to navigate. Plus, it doesn't give a chance for games to be in the spotlight, like the eShop does.

Sure games get a better spotlight but actually at the same time they don't. Wii Shop has something similar to that, and like Star Fox previously mentioned not every DSiware game is present. Whereas every game that ever graced the Wii Shop is still there. And for you to complain about the WSC being too slow to navigate, just shows laziness. Because its not.

Not that its hard to find anything but rather theres too much to be put on one menu selection screen. All the games are available you'll just have to search them if they dont appear in a category. It wouldnt be fair if some DSiWare games never appeared on the selection in the eShop because they wouldnt get the recognition they deserve and neither would they sell as well.

Maybe it's because I had a DSi since a little bit after launch and already have 95% of all DSiWare I'm interested in, but I'm fine with the eShop the way it is. I can, however, see how it would be frustrating to not have a convenient list of all DSiWare titles if I didn't have a DSi or religiously followed DSiWare before the eShop's launch, but navigation on the eShop is way better than it ever was on the DSi Shop.

You can just use the search engine to look up keywords like Startegy and RPG to find games like that, and if you see one you like add it to your wish list and buy it later.
