This does include 3DS eShop but doesn't include VC (I do need to get a few more GB titles...)

I'm not sure if I'll be able to because money but I'll try at the very least. I've been wanting to get into indies for quite some time now (basically since I first played Shadow Complex on XBLA) and now's a good a time as any! And there's so many games coming to Wii U's eShop, it's crazy (a noticible contrast to its confirmed retail releases).

Keep in mind that apparently I could afford to get like 6-7 new retail releases pre-Christmas last year, so saying I'm gonna get this many downloadable games along with the retail stuff is possibly insane. But I want to so I will if I can.

Edit:
1. Crimson Shroud
2. NES Remix
3. Child of Light
4. Stick it to the Man
5. Another World: 20th Anniversary Edition
6. Shovel Knight
7. Armillo
8. Gunman Clive

Any games in particular you're really looking forward too? I know I'll be getting Shovel Knight.. no others seem like a must have for me just yet though.

Pier solar is a must have I'd say, I think that's coming to 3DS and wii u and just about everything else, even dreamcast.

Most of them I could see being great or just ok tbh. I honestly haven't done a ton to look into every game, and I'll just see which ones interest me or get the best reviews or something. And there's a ton of stuff I'll forget about and then suddenly remember because there's too many games to keep track of.

Shovel Knight looks one of the best retro titles out there, and Two Brothers despite some not very great reviews for the PC version, I still think will be a fascinating experience. Both Tengami and that japanese robot dog game look really cool and old Rare guys working again makes me happy. Still really happy about Guns of Icarus. Child of Light isn't indie but it's the best defense of my optimistic opinion of Ubisoft, and seems really interesting and beautiful. I've always wanted to try the Oddworld games. Scram Kitty is apparently an excellent title.

Child of Light and Guns of Icarus interest me most, as well as Teslagrad and Hyper Light Drifter. Two Brothers could be really good if they really tweak the Wii U version.

Everything else I'll just keep an eye out for reviews.

Let's see. I want Treasurenauts, new Shantae (3DS), IronFall, Moon Chronicles, Cult County, Tappingo, Super Mario Bros 3,...hmm I have 7 I want so far. The eShop line-up is better than the 2014 3DS retail games coming imo.

Edit: oh yeah and i want How to Survive so make that 8 :P

Bravely Default

Teslagrad already has reviews for the PC version. In fact, the only complaints I've heard judgng from reviews, is that it's not super easy and it has exploration. Yes, those were the complaints. I think its safe to say it's really really good.

Oh yeah, Child of Light. I'll be getting that one when it releases, too. The art style and gameplay seems right up my alley. Been looking forward to that one since it was announced.

Teslagrad looked pretty good. Glad to hear it's getting decent reviews.. but I don't see how exploration or difficulty are negatives. Those are both positives in my book, especially difficulty. That just makes me want the game more.

I don't get it, either, to be honest. Since it's the PC version, I'm simply going to assume that PC players aren't used to being challenged.

Two Brothers is glitchy as all get out on the PC. If it does come to the eShop I'd sincerely hope it's with a massive overhaul. As it stands I got it in a bundle for $5 or something, and I still feel gipped.

I'd say that if you haven't bought the indie ganes that are currently on sale, that might be a quick way to get 5 games for fairly cheap.

Might Switch Force HD, Runner 2, Giana Sisters, Toki Tori 2+, and Spin the Bottle are all on sale.

Toki Tori 2+ and Spin the Bottle(especially) aren't exactly my thing, but the other ones are arguably worth the $4-6. I'm currently playing Giana Sisters and LttP on VC, so I can't complain. The only one I don't own is Spin the Bottle, BTW. I paid full price for Runner 2 and Mighty Switch Force HD, so I think they're worth $4-6.

Honestly only 2 of those would interest me and even then I'm more interested in the upcoming games/certain 3DS eShop games already out.

Also Crimson Shroud get! I am counting 3DS eShop and games already released after all. Not sure if I should count f2p stuff if I don't pay anything because part of the point of this is to actively support these games...

I bought Mighty Switch Force, Runner 2, and Giana Sisters. I'm about to delete Giana Sisters off my sister because I just don't like it. I thought I would, but it just isn't what I wanted it to be. The screenshots and even gameplay videos of it looked good, but the minute I started playing it.. it just felt off. Mighty Switch Force and Runner 2 on the other hand, I really enjoyed and have already beaten. Aside from the speed run / high point stuff.

I plan on getting a lot more in the next couple of months. Just haven't had time lately...

Anyway, NES Remix because why not? I'm gonna intentionally not get NES Remix 2 this year because that would be obvious and boring. But this is a nice way to go back to NES games I'm not interested in playing much anymore.
