Ok because it looks like I should post help here...I have two choices for games but I dont know which to get ...same with me as I only have 10 bucks

Crimson Shrouds (7.99)
Denpa Men: They Came by Wave (9.99)

So difficult to choose

It's a really tough choice, as they're the best two eShop games out there, IMO.

Length: It'll take about 20 hours to complete Denpa Men (40 if you do the post story dungeons). It takes about 8 hours to complete Crimson Shroud (you'll want to play it twice though, to get the good ending).

Graphics/Setting: Denpa Men is a very colorful quirky title with a simple story, while Crimson Shroud is very dark & has the deepest story on eShop.

Gameplay: Denpa Men features a more classic no-frills approach to turn based battling, but is more challenging than CS (mostly the post story dungeons). Crimson Shroud isn't as challenging as DM (even it's New Game + is tamer than DM's later dungeons), but it has a much more in depth and intriguing battle system.

Characters: There is much more variety in Denpa Men's cast, but the DM themselves are mostly throwaway, and Crimson Shroud has very well thought out interesting characters.

Guys, I'm on the fence about Liberation Maiden.
I'm a total fan of SUDA's work, like No More Heroes, Killer 7, Lollipop Chainsaw and Shadows of the Damned; how's this game compared to those? Does it retain the unique SUDA style?
And what about this thing that they are calling this the first of a trilogy of games???

Thanks for the advice, I will be looking into more detail, cause it is truly a tough choice :/

Liberation Maiden is a little less over-the-top than most SUDA games, although it's still pretty off the wall. Just your average 16 year old schoolgirl President mech pilot saviour of Japan It's also really short, and some would say it's easy.

The trilogy refers to the fact that it belongs to a compilation called Guild01, although those games have really nothing in common besides their design philosophy.

always thought I'd change to Gyarados after I turned 20 but hey, this is more fitting I guess. (also somebody registered under the original Magikarp name and I can't get back to it anymore orz)

So, Ikachan or Bloody Vampire? While neither are perfect, I hear they're both decent Metroidvanias for the price.

BTW, as for Metroidvanias, I already have (and completed):

  • Cave Story
  • Metroid
  • Metroid II
  • Metroid Fusion (amb)

Bloody Vampire gives you the better value (4-5 Hours to complete) and it is an overall decent Igavania clone. Ikachan on the other hand is a more polished experience (Better graphics, controls, music & story), but the sub-hour length and inappropriate price is a huge pill to swallow. It is no doubt that this was the precursor to Cave Story but in comparison it feels like a preview, but an enjoyable preview. While I enjoyed both and you can go either way, I have to say Ikachan left a better impact on me since it had the charm and the replayability similar to that of the early Kirby games. In the other hand, I felt like I got my money's worth out of Bloody Vampire. If you want a charming yet simple game that is reminiscent of Cave Story and is easy to get into and replay, get Ikachan. You want Doujin styled Metroidvania action complete with stat upgrades and hidden paths that will give you more bang for your buck, get Bloody Vampire.

For the best Metroidvania platforming besides Cave Story, drop your anti-DSiWare stigma and pick up Shantae: Risky's Revenge. It has it's flaws but is overall an enjoyable experience and pretty decent for 12 bucks. Combine that with X-Scape and that's a great $20 package, then go back to avoiding DSiWare.

Well, Picdun 2: the Witch's Curse came out today, so Ikachan & Bloody Vampire will have to wait for the next time I get some funds for eShop.

I just can't resist an RPG when the opportunity arises, lol.

Didn't you avoid Planet Crashers? Some sort of internal sense?

I have $15 left kn my digital 3DS wallet and am a big nut for platformers. I currently have my eye on Crashmo, and I am also interested in any other 3DS eShop platformer as well. Could you guys think of any? Do not include VC or DSiWare games. I am also thinking of holding out for Jett Rocket II. What should I do? I am getting Harmoknight regardles once I add more money after I spend my curreng money so don't mention holding oht for Harmoknight.

I am inclined to recommend X-Scape even though it's DSiWare.

Past that, it'd be sorta nice to know what you have. Mighty Switch Force is good, next week we got Fractured Soul for platformers. As a person who wasn't a huge fan of Pushmo I can say Crashmo is a lot better though so spend $6 on that.

From what I've played:

6. Mutant Mudds ($9)
5. Gunman Clive ($2)
4. NightSky ($10)
3. Mighty Switch Force! ($6)
2. VVVVVV ($8)
1. Cave Story ($10)

NightSky being the most unconventional of the bunch, but they're all unique (except for Mudds. It's still a great game, just the most unoriginal).

I'd argue Gunman Clive is equally unoriginal since both games feature a unique art-style (what the hell is 12-bit?) and nothing else. Cave Story as well, but it's a much better game then the other 2 combined so it's okay.

Thanks for the suggestions guys. I got Crashmo, Mighty Switch Force, and Gunman Clive. All great games... Crashmo is difficult yet rewarding, Mighty Switch Force is short but sweet, as well as Gunman Clive being short but sweet. My favorite of the three is Crashmo, and counting Mega Man 2 , which I got three weeks ago, Mighty Sitch Force is in second place, Mega Man 2 is third, and Gunman Clive is in fourth place they are all a blast to play. Next time I get eShop money, I will either get Harmoknight, Jett Rocket II, or Mario VS Donkey Kong Minis on the Move if it's out. Thanks anyways!

Seeing that Ketzal's Corridors is getting discounted to $5 later, I highly advise you to try the game out. It's certainly one of my favorite eshop puzzle games thus far. With some of the best 3D effects, an addictive twist to the Tetris formula that puts your reflexes to the test and loads of extra modes via world map, this game was destined to be played on a 3D portable machine. Just Get It.

If you loved Megaman 2 I say go with Megaman 3. IMO 3 is better than 2 especially with the addition of the slide and Rush. 3 is considered by many to be one of the best in the series.

As for Super Mario Bros the Lost Levels that is a tough call. Alot of people like it than again alot of people like myself dont. Its is very similar to SMB but the difficulty has been cranked up alot. But if you love a good challenge and dont mind the similarity than that is a game for you.

I cant give an opinion on the other ones since I have not played them yet. Hope that helps.

Thanks! I'll definitely get Mega Man 3, and Harmoknight to go with.
