Can anyone tell me what the difficulty is like on Dead Space Extraction? We are looking in to getting it for my Dad. He isn't really a gamer but is wanting to branch out from more than just Mario Kart,Wii sports ect. We have a few WiiWare On-rails shooters and he likes them but wants something a little more in-depth.

The remote and nunchuk are used with all four primary buttons and the control stick put into play at one time or another, but the controls aren't horribly complicated and the opening part of the game does a good job of walking players through the primary actions.

I think a bigger consideration is what kind of entertainment your dad enjoys: this is an 18-rated game with swearing and a lot of violence and it's a horror title so there are some scares there (after multiple replays there are still bits that make me jump). I think it's excellent because it has a well-developed narrative and is presented with a cinematic flare - it's definitely not just a target shooting game.

I find myself now repurchasing games that I sold on ages ago. Thankfully I made it a point to retain save data for involved games in case I someday changed my mind.

Ordered this week:

Sakura Wars: So Long My Love - I loved this so not sure what I was thinking when I sold it; I only did a couple of character endings - thankfully I kept the save data!

Arcade Zone - This is a guilty pleasure. Yes it's a lame "party" game with some crap motion controls, but the voiced dialogue by in-game characters is pretty funny and the main selling point is four updated Atari console classics: Atlantis, Kaboom, Freeway and Megamania. I cannot tell you how many hours I spent playing Atlantis and Megamania as a kid, but that's worth it right there. Seriously if you get a chance to pick this up cheap, it's worth a laugh. I actually reviewed it for NL: http://www.nintendolife.com/reviews/2009/11/arcade_zone_wii

ExciteBots, $8 for a used CIB game only from GameStop. I probably could've got it new for that price plus shipping from amazon. Which I probably would've if this was a planned purchase, rather than impulse. And I don't really care if I don't get the Wheel with it, so I'm okay.

Wario Land: Shake It - Got it for $13.50, the lowest I've ever seen for a major Nintendo game. While it's a 2D platformer, and I hear it's a hard one at that, I do like Wario, so hopefully it'll be worth it.

Just Dance 3, although that was my sister. The last one I got was Red Steel for 6 bucks.

I order the The Munchables yesterday - another re-purchase for me; possibly the last. My main motivation is that I think my daughter would enjoy it and I like playing games with her.

Xenoblade was my last purchase and the last story will be my final purchase so it seems

Malic

Mandoble

Rayman Origins
The last Story (quite interesting game btw)
Metroid other M after a price reduction as I've never been convinced, and it resulted as bad as expected
Conduit 2 also after a price reduction, seems a pretty well implemented game
Konami's Castlevania the Adventure Rebirth WW

I definitely think a re-purchase of Muramasa is in the cards; possibly Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn...waiting to see how my finances look next month!

Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Kirby's Epic Yarn. I just really wanted some Nintendo platformers.

Is Back to the Future worth a buy?

Does this game really have some Metroid like exploration elements like some reviews claim? If so I waited to long for this one.

It has plenty of Backtracking, but it's mostly "go here when I tell you to, go there when I tell you to", you run into unnatural barriers when you go the wrong way, that basically say "derp-derp, not supposed to be here yet". Unless it magically opens up somewhere past the half-way point, I wouldn't call it "Metroidvania".

Muramasa reminds me more of old school action RPGs like Princess Crown and Legend of Mana, but with infinitely better combat.

Well I suppose that is a Metroid like element.
