Full list of games on sale:

So what's everyone planning to get? I still need to go convert some speedy rewards points to eShop moneys and browse it more (ugh work soon!), but so far I'm going to get:

Wii U:
Teslagrad
Adventures of Pip
Never Alone
Pushmo World (been eyeing that for a while!)

3DS:
BoxBoy!

everything's good and it'll be that way forever!

As expected, the deals for retail downloads are lame, but there's some good stuff in there for eShop-only titles.

I'm also in for Never Alone and Pushmo World (I've never played a Pushmo/Crashmo, so it's about time). Interested in BoxBoy!, but it's only $1.50 off, so I'll probably wait. Also toying with the idea of Inazuma Eleven, but I probably don't need another long game in my back catalog right now.

There are a few I would want but none I will probably actually get, money is a little tight during this whole job switch time lol

People keep saying the Xbox One doesn't have Backwards Compatibility.
I don't think they know what Backwards Compatibility means...

Somewhat on topic, does anybody know anything about the retail release of Teslagrad in NA? Did it ever come out or have a release date? I would probably rather get it physical, but I haven't heard anything about it in ages.

Metroid Fusion, Kirby and Alphadia Genesis are on my shortlist. I don't think this is the full list of sales. The Thursday downloads story last week mentioned that the Snoopy game was also going on sale, for example. I'll hold onto my wallet until I get a look at the full extent of sales.

I wonder if Pikmin 3 is worth getting. It's selling for ridiculous amounts on ebay, whether new (about $70) or used (about $50). $37.99 is not that cheap, but better than retail or ebay.

@TomJ: That is a good decision.

@Xyphon22: Here's an update on that from a Teslagrad dev, from about two months ago. The answer is basically, "it's still coming, but we don't know when."

@cwong15: I'd love to read some impressions of Alphadia Genesis if you take the plunge. Virtually all the press it's gotten has been mediocre to bad, but something about an unabashedly old-school JRPG appeals to me. Maybe it's just been a while.

Pikmin 3 is worth every penny of $37.99, in my estimation. It's one of the most outright charming and well-designed games Nintendo has produced this generation — if you enjoyed the first two, I'd recommend it.

All of Natsume's games are on sale on the eshop too.

That includes Harvest Moon Tale of Two Towns, @barbiegurl777.

Yeah I don’t know either.

Eh! My gameplay videos

There are more sales besides that official list. Snoopy's Grand Adventure and Transformers are also 50% off: $19.99 vs $39.99. Spider-Man games at $19.99 and $14.99 vs $49.99 and $39.99 respectively. Spongebob, Zumba at 75% off. Stone Shire a steal at $1 vs $7.99. Finn & Jake Investigations is 25% off at $29.99 vs $39.99. I don't get why people are grumbling about sales, there's a lot for everyone. My wallet will certainly take a beating this season.

My short list is out the window as I have to reprioritize.

@foodmetaphors: Adventures of Pip is pretty meh. The music is fantastic but the gameplay and level design are very forgettable.

Thanks for the tip, I'll make it a lower priority than the rest of the games tho I do have like $60 in eShop moneys to spend so I may get it regardless

everything's good and it'll be that way forever!

For those in the US, BestBuy is selling eShop cards tomorrow for 15% off. If you think about it, it's extra savings!

I grabbed Kirby Return to Dreamland and Wonderful 101. So happy with those purchases.
While it is far slimmer offerings than I expected, there are some good games there.

More than anything, I am mostly disappointed in how bad the releases are in the eShop today. I expected more.

Might be able to squeeze some money out. I don't know if I should get Kirby for Wii or not

Isn't £29.99 for SM3dW Wii U a good price though? I don't think it's ever been cheaper.
Puzzle Dragons is tempting because I play that so much on my iPad. But then again, I already play that so much on my iPad.

@riChchestM: By worse, I was solely referring to the quantity of games on sale. 4 is rather bad in comparison NA, though the quality of the sale is great, I'd strongly recommend W101 for the sale price.
