Mega Man Legacy Collection would be an insta-buy if it included Mega Man 9 and 10, but I already have 1-6 on 3DS and Wii U VC. I'm not buying it just for challenges. My vote goes to Mutant Mudds Super Challenge.

Lifespeed also looks interesting.

Great week! Binding of Isaac on BOTH platforms (not interested in it personally, but I know the demand for it is high), Dragon Fantasy which I'm grabbing (with cross-buy!), and a Shantae discount. I wanted the 3DS version of it rather than Wii U but noticed the Wii U version was discounted and the 3DS version wasn't. That $20 price tag was keeping me away.

I still want to give it a chance. It's from the people who made one of my favorite 3DS games: Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon. I mean I don't care if it's "not what I was expecting" as long as it's fun.

@locky-mavo Yeah same here (and the "not what I was expecting" comment wasn't directed at you. It's just what I've been hearing a lot of).

I honestly feel that Splinter Cell 3D gets a bum wrap. The game is much better than most give it credit for (at least for me because I'm just interested in the single player content). And having all your equipment mapped to the touch screen is much quicker and more convenient than having to mess around with pop up menus. Frame rate isn't very good, but it's consistent. I say if you're even a little interested, you can't go wrong for that price. It's probably the best portable Splinter Cell money can buy.

Oh and might I also add that you unlock equipment as you complete missions, and you get to use ALL of it in each mission (in other words, you can bring the fore grip, launcher, shotgun, and sniper attachments into a mission all together, a pretty fun advantage that SC3D has over the console versions where you had to select from three static load outs). Also, it has cooler night vision goggles that fuse night vision, thermal vision, and EMF vision into one sleek viewing mode that looks like white-hot thermal.

And yes, Shadow Wars is a steal if you're looking for a good TBS game. It's like a futuristic Fire Emblem (albeit with flat characters and story, but the game play delivers).

I'm definitely grabbing Child of Light for that price though because I love RPGs. And I may pick up Blacklist as I've wanted to for a long time but just haven't.

@DarthNocturnal I won't deny that DoR can drag at times. I am kind of glad they toned the CO powers in it down so much though because I feel like they get in the way of actual strategy sometimes. Not doing well? Pop out that CO power. More so the tag powers than CO and super CO powers.

And it's true about the tag powers leading to stalemates. I once created a map with tons of factories and airports on both sides and neither side could ever win due to the tag powers. When one side would finally get close the other side would use a tag power and push the front back, and it just kept going on and on.

@DarthNocturnal Keep plugging at it, man! Strategy takes a lot more practice than some genres of games, but it's a very rewarding one to get good at. When I started out I was terrible at Fire Emblem and Wars, but I've gotten a lot better. For instance, my first time playing Days of Ruin on DS it took me about 40-50 turns to defeat a certain general's army, but a few months later I tried again and it only took around 20.

@Ogbert "It was so colourful then the DS ones went all dark and grey :/"
Actually it was just one that went grey: Days of Ruin. It's actually my favorite one though, but I can see where it turned some people off.

For me, Days of Ruin is the best one because the mood and tone just seem more fitting for a game about war. It makes me feel a lot more tense and in the zone whereas the colorful ones were fun, but kind of had a hard time keeping my attention. Also, Days of Ruin is WAY more balanced than one like Duel Strike where the victor is pretty much whoever can activate their tag power first... -_- Those things are so broken.

I think I need this RIGHT NOW! Honestly, the battles and battle sprites are giving me a huge Earthbound vibe, and I love that you can switch between 8 and 16 bit on the fly! And cross-buy! :D

Also I just finished playing through Chrono Trigger again, so I need some more RPG in my life.

@allav866 You just stole the words out of my mouth!

I had a somewhat confused understanding of this whole deal, but now I actually understand it, so thanks, NL and Gaming Historian!

Also, I see Villager, Ike, Little Mac, and Ness amiibo in the background. Don't have Villager and Little Mac...

@Megumi I'm not gonna lie, that level actually looks kind of fun in a sadistic sort of way...not like the one I posted. Imagine if the developers had originally included levels like that! O_o Oh and that death at 6:28 was just cruel...

ShadJV Hah! I hope it has blarggs too. That's been your avatar for as long as I can remember...

@Tops I know, I was already excited, but after watching that it's a definite day 1 purchase! F-Zero GX is one of my all time favorites, and the slowest league on this looked about as fast as that! O_o He seems like a really nice guy too, and I have to respect the amount of effort they're putting into this game. It really looks like they're trying to make it interesting rather than just a standard racer. I'm tempted to go get the Wii Ware game now...

Can't. Wait.

Giygas_95 commented on Fire Emblem Fates Storms to Number One in Japan:

What caused this surge of popularity for the franchise I wonder...? It started with Awakening, but what caused it?

Meanwhile I'm just waiting...whelp, at least I have all the other FE games to hold me over until then.

Giygas_95 commented on Veterans Of 3DS Title Xeodrifter Will Get The ...:

Oh noice! I may just play it on Wii U then!

Also, I was going to say that the poor EU sales may be why he doesn't try to get his games to EU as hard...but the longer wait Europeans have to go through probably drives sales down. Vicious cycle. Of course, a lot of people don't like the price either.

Also, I'm wondering what the heck happened to Treasurenauts...I mean Xeodrifter shot past it and Mutant Mudds Super Challenge recently got an eshop trailer. Could Treasurenauts have been canned?

@Grumblevolcano But don't you think she'd be a pretty unique character? It seems like she'd be way different from normal Samus based on her attacks from Prime 2 and 3 (plus she'd float off the ground like Mewtwo does).

I mean she could use attacks like the scatter shot for instance. And her up B could be sort of a phazon based shinespark rather than the screw attack.
