@Tyranexx That's good to hear. I'll definitely pick up Wario Land 2 and 3 at some point then. Yeah, that sounds like the best option for playing through the Battle Network games, I played good chunks of all the games, at least. I only finished 5 and 6. That's awesome to hear about WarioWare Gold, good thing I thought of it ahead of time!

Maybe I could get the Virtual Console games first, then get the retail games I previously mentioned in this thread. Right now, though, I don't want to mess with my Mario Kart DLC preorder.

@PikaPhantom I have Sin and Punishment: Star Successor and it's awesome. Highly recommend it if you're into arcade-styled shooters, and it looks really good for a Wii game.

@MarioLover92 I also highly recommend WarioWare Gold, but physical copies of it are very cheap last time I checked (at least in the UK) so I wouldn't necessarily rush to buy it from the eShop unless you really want it digitally.

@Dogorilla I'm in the US. I just checked Amazon and it's $5 off currently.

@MarioLover92 As in $5 less than full price? Hmm, it goes for a lot cheaper than that here (it's £15 new on Amazon). That's still cheaper than it will ever be on the eShop though, but I don't know what your priorities are in terms of digital vs physical games.

@Dogorilla Yes that's correct. It's $35 here. Most of the time, I pretty much do either physical or digital, and I kinda like having games like Animal Crossing downloaded on my console, so I can play it anytime without swapping game cards. I do like having a lot of the Mario games in a physical format though.

Here's what I currently have on my 3DS eShop wish list:

  • Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate
  • Hatsune Miku: Project Mirai DX
  • Dragon Quest VII & VIII
  • Ever Oasis
  • Etrian Odyssey V
  • Jake Hunter Detective Story: Ghost of the Dusk
  • Sayonara Umihara Kawase
  • Hydroventure: Spin Cycle
  • escapeVektor
  • Splash or Crash
  • WEAPON SHOP de OMASSE
  • Some Virtual Console titles

Some aren't digital exclusives so I'll probably go for physical whenever possible. I'll have to take a good look at Wii U eShop's offerings when I have time.

What is a download code ?

@Ninfan A download code is something you can buy and typically redeem on the eShop. Good example, I bought F-Zero from GameStop's website, and redeeming the code gave me the game on Wii U.

I remember GameStop, Amazon, and Humble sold download codes for Wii U and 3DS, in Humble's case, 3DS.

It's an alternative way to buy digital games if you don't feel like buying directly from the Wii U, 3DS or Switch eShops.

I went and spent the first “little by little” deposit before it had a chance to accumulate… As usual.

Got the dlc chapter I was missing from Ace Attorney Spirit of Justice (since it comes with a 3DS theme as well!), a few of the cheat dlc items for Etrian Odyssey Untold 2 & Nexus, Puzzler World XL, and Oracle of Seasons.

Thes last two are repeats, since I want to have both on my regular 2DS… I kinda regret moving my main account to a New system!

About EOU2, which of the boss monster/Dungeon dlcs would you guys recommend? I won’t be getting all because they’re a lot, but I’d like having one or two.

I absolutely recommend Puzzler World XL, it’s easily the DSiWare title with the best value imo

Does anyone have any feedback regarding if HarmoKnight and Weapon Shop de Omasse are worth getting? I'm not the best at rhythm games but did enjoy the former's demo back in the day. Pretty sure I have my heart set on Crimson Shroud and Fluidity/Hydroventure: Spin Cycle.

@MarioLover92 It's hard to go wrong with any of the main five Wario Land titles IMO. I haven't played Wario World (Because GCN, plus I think it's considered a spinoff) or Virtual Boy Wario Land (Kinda obvious why not lol). As for the Battle Network games, my personal favorites are 3 (Only played White) and 6 (played both; I prefer Gregar), though it's hard to go wrong with any of them...but the first is definitely hard to go back to after playing the others.

I have most of the VC entries I want in some form, though I still need to do my Kirby eval. I'm mostly focused on system exclusives that interest me at this time.

Currently playing: Xenoblade Chronicles 3, Stretchmo

Feel free to send me a Switch friend request, but please tell me first. Otherwise, I probably won't accept.

Wario Land 3 might be my favorite GBC game... That doesn't have Zelda or Pokemon in the name. Which is weird when you consider I didn't particularly like any of the other games in the series...

It's a great game.

Pokémon Picross.

Even if you are against hacking your 3DS now, which is valid and understandable, you may want to hack it in the future after the eShop closes to play digital only games that only released on 3DS that you didn’t even know you wanted until it was too late. A exploit using Pokémon Picross allows you to jailbreak your 3DS in the future (quite easily I may add) should you choose to do so.

I know it isn’t the specific point of this thread, but 3DS games I recommend downloading before the eShop closes so can you have a legit copy:

-Pocket Card Jockey and Harmoknight: Both are games made by GameFreak that are totally worth the price of admission. Harmoknight does have some frustrating levels that may test your patience, but it’s still a good game. Pocket Card Jockey on the other hand is absolutely amazing and also only $8. If you like solitaire, you will love the twists Pocket Card Jockey brings. Super underrated and I’ve spent 30 hours on it through multiple replays and I’ve still never 100% it.

-Game Boy and Game Boy Color virtual console games. Hopefully Nintendo makes them available on Switch at some point, but 3DS will probably still be the better way to play them as you’ll own a copy instead of needing a subscription. I especially recommend the 3 Wario Land games, the first is on the OG Gameboy and the second and third on Color. Super underrated with design philosophies that still hold up all these years later. The GB/GBC Pokémon games like Yellow and Crystal are the only way to get Pokémon from the first two generations legitimately into the modern games, so buying them is good if you care about the series for posterity’s sake. Crystal especially is still mindblowingly packed with content and allows you to shiny hunt in some unique ways through differing breeding mechanics, as well as a Shiny Celebi with your OT. I also recommend Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins, great GB platformer that feels a lot meatier than the first Super Mario Land which felt like it wasn’t really made for the hardware like the sequel is.

Let it be known
Merege your Nintendo Network (3DS/Wii U) funds with your Nintendo Account (Switch) funds. That way you can also get Gold Points from your purchases on the Wii U and 3DS eShops to use on the Switch. That way if you buy a lot of stuff from the old eShops you may get something on the Switch as well.
This is also seemingly the only way you'll be able to add funds to buy on the old eShops after late August 2022 until their closures.

Thankfully on the Wii U, I realize I don't want that many games, it's mostly Virtual Console games. The 3DS, on the other hand, is an absolute catch-up mode since I got mine on mid-2017. The objective is to have both systems be as gaming ready as they can be without hacking or modding them.

Some of them might not be necessarily must-haves (particularly the SNES VC games on both systems), but it'd be nice if I could get them.
All of this is just Virtual Console and games only available digitally, I'm not even planning to get games available physically or 3DS Themes. Though I'm considering getting things like Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed on Wii U and Sonic Lost World + Sonic Generations on the 3DS since they're rather cheap and I might make an exception on Kirby: Planet Robobot, but that will be like one of the last purchases, if not the last.

Some problems I might encounter are that I need a hard drive for my Wii U, any recom...
EDIT: I got a Western Digital HDD of 1TB, that should be enough for all the Wii U purchases I intend before March 2023 and for those I have made. Though I need a Y-Cable, the Wii U cannot handle HDDs with a regular USB cable with ease and I get constant errors and crashes.

My 3DS purchases might also be problematic, my internet hates the 3DS and I need to do it at work, which doesn't have the best internet connection. What I'm doing to mitigate the issue is that I'm adding funds on the Wii U the days before I make downloads on the 3DS and I do it at work before I start my deeds and at the end of the day.

Sorry, this will be a long list and I cannot find a way to make it dropdown.

DLC (thankfully I'm not missing much that I really want)
-Super Smash Bros. 4 DLC I'm missing on both systems, but the intention is to at least have "for Wii U" as complete as possible. I'm missing everyone and everywhere on 3DS, but only Mewtwo, Lucas, Roy, Corrin and a lot of Mii Fighters costumes on Wii U. The costumes might not be that much of a necessity, though.

-New Super Mario Bros. 2 DLC Courses (though I don't have the game yet, I want to get it physically and may get it in the upcoming months)

✔️The games in Rusty's Real Deal Baseball

-Gem Apples of Team Kirby Clash Deluxe to make the Apple Tree grow to its maximum (maybe) (though that's a microtransaction, not DLC, but if it's like the Switch game, in that after enough purchases it discourages you from making any more microtransactions, I'm game)

-The StreetPass Mii Plaza games not called "Slot Car Rivals" plus (maybe) StreetPass Mii Plaza VIP.

-The Passes for Stretchmo (maybe)

-Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water chapters

✔️Updates for 3DS games I don't own but eventually will.

(This comment will be updated periodically to strike, add and remove games as needed)

EDIT: I'm also realizing I have backups of Wii, DSi, Wii U SD Card, 3DS and Switch all over the place. I could use another HDD for all that and maybe some SD Cards as I don't have any dedicated to a particular system save for the 3DS and Switch.

I know I'm probably beating a dead horse here but I really don't like the move to shut down the Wii U and 3DS eShop. Controversial opinion I know! I mean with the Wii and DS online services I can see why that happened. They leant on a company who ended up being brought by IGN and was then shut down. Possibly the Wii and DS storefronts were tied to that in some way, I'm not sure. But I can kinda get that. Also I'm fairly sure the Wii/DS storefronts used TLS 1.0 which is unsecure and was dropped by most companies in 2020. It does make sense

But as far as I'm aware there's no such cloud over the Wii U and 3DS. I mean the funds on those storefronts have been tied to your Nintendo Account since it was created in early 2016. And to Nintendo Network ID since the Wii U launched. I mean maybe they want to shut down the Nintendo Network ID service? I mean possibly. But I highly doubt it's costing them that much to keep it going

Basically my point is, I've been a pretty vocal defender of Nintendo. A lot of times well against the outrage culture and people looking at Nintendo from outside of the "core fans". Some of their supposed bad moves, like IMO NSO, I think have merit. But shutting down the Wii U and 3DS eShops and especially now? ...... I don't see why it's necessary. The only positive for anyone I see out of this is that Nintendo makes a few bucks from people rushing to buy stuff from them before they close it down

For me, I wouldn't be rushing to buy games that were only available on the Wii U and 3DS eShops. I don't think people should be rewarding this move. If you really want to play these titles? To be completely blunt, this is one of those very rare occasions I'd argue that piracy is justified. Especially after the door shuts on these store fronts next year

I’ve been snapping up Atlus titles periodically over the past couple of years whenever there’s a sale. The only one still on my wish list is Devil Survivor Overclocked, which never goes on sale in the EU. Literally not once since release. May just bite the bullet.

I’ll probably get Boxboy, but not sure Pullblox appeals. And I bought DQVII physical this week, so that saves me space on the memory card.

One of the only other titles I want is the third 999 game - which is no longer even available on the eShop. But my 3DS is hacked, so if I really can’t get it another way, there are options. I could ease my conscience by buying it on another platform, even if I’d rather play on 3DS.

It looks like some games from my wishlist have been delisted some years ago, as far as I can tell right now: Meat Boy, Jotun, and Battle Chopper (TG16) ... at least they dont show in the North American eShop

I was thinking to contact the developers/publisher via twitter or email, and ask them if they can relist them for this last eShop year. Do you guys think they could do that? Is it worth a shot?

Capcom and Lightwood Games have several of their games on sale on the 3DS eshop at the moment.

I noticed Link-A-Pix Color from Lightwood was on the sale, and I assumed it was the same game I have on the Switch, which has Deluxe instead of Color in the name, and comes with more puzzles.... But then I went and checked, and it turns out the content from the 3DS game is sold as DLC for the Switch game, and with the sale, buying the 3DS game is actually cheaper. So I went and grabbed that.
