I don't own a 3DS, so I bought the HD collection immediately. I beat both games several times and thoroughly enjoyed them.
The final boss of #2 was awesome. I'd love to see an entire game filled with enemies like that. Kind of like a 2D Shadow of the Colossus.

Every week they should pick at least one well liked game to be on sale... Mega Man X, Mario World, Guacamelee, etc. Even if it's just a tiny sale.
Seeing something better in the lineup [even if it's a game many of us have already] would at least make these lists look like they're trying.

@BulbasaurusRex "Yeah, I really want to play a brand new GameBoy game on my modern HD console," SAID ME. I will always be a gameboy nut. The sound of GB music is magic to my ears.
@Kirk I agree. I was completely sold until the words "randomly generated maps." In 30 yrs I have only played two games that effectively pulled off randomly generated levels. One was Steamworld Fig. The other was an amazing Windows 95 Indiana Jones game.

This is one of my top 10 games ever. Looking forward to the added content but even more so to their next project. I'm not a big amiibo fan but I will get SK when he comes out. It's honestly much better implementation of extra content than anything Nintendo has done with amiibos.

I keep hearing about how there is an overwhelming number of Metroidvania games from indies. But imho there have barely been any good ones so I say keep them coming. Once the market is oversaturated with top notch Metroidvania games, then we can talk about whether indies need to diversify.
