Alright I have $4.13 left in my account after getting a few items. So Im wanted so thoughts on what else to get. Posted this here because it dealt with DSiware, VC, and 3DSware. So what software from those should I get.

I already own
Legend Of Zelda Link's Awakening DX
Super Mario Land
Ivy The Kiwi mini

My personal picks:

3DSWare:
Pyramids, if your into platforming and puzzles. Really good game and gets pretty hard in the later levels. Along with QR codes the devs are putting up on their Facebook page to increase the length of the game, but trying to unlock the 6th World will take you a while as it is.

VC:
Personally, I've seen nothing that tickles my fancy and therefore have bought nothing from the VC menu.

DSiWare:
Army Defender, very good game and gets quite challenging as you progress through the waves of oncoming enemies. Can sometimes take an hour or two (depending on how good you are) before you're actually defeated, your turret gets upgraded after so many games with more lives, more nukes and more bullets to fire. You also get special powers flown in to help you out. Unfortunately, no online leaderboards, which I think it really needs.

Very good and very deep, but completely worthless. You can still play the game without it, it just gives the game an added depth and makes the background nicer. Other than that, it's really nothing special.

I hate Tax and I hate this stupid dollar amount. Couldn't get Pyramids as it comes to $4.23 with tax.

Guess Avenging Spirit.

Stuff likes this makes me not want to but from the eshop.

$4.23? What is wrong with your currency over there? o.0

I find it weird that you get taxed on a downloadable game and why it ends with .99...

1.Certain states in the U.S. tax downloadable content, though it's not enforced evenly where it is applied (I get taxed on eShop purchases here in Illinois, but not on iTunes purchases ...). 2. Practically all non-food items here in the U.S. are priced at something ending in .99. The reasoning behind it is a psychological one: While it's only one cent, $1.99 looks a lot cheaper than $2, so enough consumers will buy the product that you'll actually make more money selling it at $1.99 than $2. It makes sense from a business standpoint when you think about it.

Exactly.

Avenging Spirit looks freakin' great though. I mean, I myself haven't played it but the review on here and gameplay videos make it seem wonderful! I'm sure you'll end up loving it and being thankful for getting it. Besides Pyramids is fun but gets real hard quick and you can always get it later. :)

Avenging Spirit is Great. Stuck on Level two But It may be one of the best gameplay mechanics's i;ve seen in a while. Would be cool to see someone obtain the IP and do a 3DSware sequel .

@Birdman13 I understand the .99 reasoning, makes it look cheaper when in actuality it's just 1p or 1c cheaper than £2 or $2. But using something like that on downloadable content doesn't sound right, because you don't get change. Meaning all those 1s that you've accumulated because of those .99 games just seems like a waste.

We have £1.80, £4.50 and £7.20, but one way or another you're always leaving with a whole number on the end rather than ending with say, 83p. Making the .99 scheme for downloadable titles, where you don't get any change, is absolutely stupid. I'd hate to go on to the eShop and see I have 83p on my account. :/

Anyways, this is getting off-topic.

@xj0462 - I'd go with Link's Awakening. At $6, Excitebike is overpriced and lacks content, and just isn't as fun as LA. It was ok when it was free, but it's simply not worth it now.

Exactly.

Link's Awakening. It actually has hours of content instead of minutes.

Doesn't talk about games.

So I just beat Super Mario Land and looking to get another VC game. Not sure what's out this week yet but if its nothing good on the 3DSware or VC front i need suggestions.

I've been looking at Super Mario Land 2 becuase its a natural progression and it would fit with my Fall of Mario when I pick up 3D land friday and Mario kart soon after that.

I already Own Link's awakening and Avenging spirit.

WAT!

I get taxed too (I live in Arizona). I don't remember PSN having tax, and it uses the same "real life" currency that the eShop uses.

Super Mario Land 2 is much better than the first game. The graphics are greatly improved, resembling Super Mario World at times, and the music is higher-quality and more varied. Plus the level designs are more unique, and it has a map.

Super Mario Land 1 isn't worth it in my opinion. It barely feels like a real Mario game. The controls are sloppy, the jumping physics are worse than Super Mario Bros. 1, the graphics are too small and lack detail, the levels are bland and feel too similar. The only good thing about the game is the music.
