Are there any save points in the Adventure Time demo? Died on the Grass Ogre battle and can't say I have much desire to start over from the beginning.

I'm happy that Adventure Time game is available as a download now. I passed on the physical version in hopes that this would happen.

Ninja Gaiden, Lost Levels, and Wario Land 2.

It feels weird when NoA actually delivers.

Also, I've never played NG. Should I get it?

The only copy of Ninja Gaiden NES I "own" is the one playable on Ninja Gaiden for Xbox, heh. My Xbox has long since been shoved into a cabinet, so I should probably get it again for more convenient access.

Hey D4, would it kill you to release a game that isn't another fighter????? Nine bucks for the millionth Fatal Fury installment, no. Where's Pulstar, Blazing Star and Twinkle Star Sprites?

Wario Land 2 is only $4?

WAT

EscapeVectr is this Thursday??

WAT

What rock have I been living under???

Damn. A pretty huge update this week, possibly the largest. And it looks like that the 3DS eShop will continue to be awesome for the next couple weeks.

I hope WL2 is $4 since I only have $6 left and wanna buy it day 1.

I have this EXACT same problem but on my DSi. I thought it might be a defect in the design but if the 3DS can do it too then maybe there are environmental factors. My launch day 3DS's shoulder buttons still work fine, though. I've never considered sending it in to be fixed because 1) I rarely use the DSi any more, and 2) When I do, I rarely need shoulder buttons. However, if there is a home remedy for your problem I'll try it on my DSi as well. I'll try blowing them out, I have a can of compressed air.

I had it pre-ordered on Amazon, actually. But like other limited/collector's editions of games I know I'd set all the stuff aside and never mess with it. Plus, I'm avoiding all physical games in favor of digital for now on.

I don't particularly know why I had so much fun with the Adventure Time demo, but I did. The gameplay seems pretty simple, but the game is very charming and controls really well. I caught myself humming the music and laughing at some of the jokes before it was said and done.

I have had zero previous experience with this IP/show, but I'm seriously considering picking it up now. How did it fair GAF impressions/reviews-wise?

Edit: oh wow, some people are completing the full retail game in three-five hours. Wish I had the money to spurge $30 on five hours, but as a college student that is a no go. Might try to rent it somewhere though, pretty promising demo I just played.

That's because it's apparently the original GameBoy black and white version (Color would be $5). It's most likely a mistake, but if it isn't and NoA really screws up that badly... I will flip several tables and potentially get banned in anger if that's possible lol

Downloading Rayman demo now. Woo! :D

Interview with the dev:

What’s your favorite new feature for Senran Kagura Burst?

My favorite feature in this game is if you blow on the microphone on the 3DS it lifts the girls’ skirts up.

Damn, it seemed like a genuinely interesting game too. I don't think you can find it anywhere else besides the WiiWare service so it's somewhat of a collector's item (or a Wii that has it).

Anyone play Harvest Moon yet? Does the art style look much better when the game is in motion with the 3D turned? So hard to tell from still images.

Thinking I'll download it tomorrow. Been wanting to play a good town, home building style game. Was gong to get Assassin's Creed 3 but really the main attraction for me with that game is the homestead feature they have and no way can I buy the game with only that being the biggest draw. Will wait until it and Batman drop in price sometime next year. I also haven't played Harvest Moon in long time as well. Last one I really played was A Wonderful Life on the GameCube. I really enjoyed that game and put a LOT of time into it. I think it was my most played GameCube game.

I think Kazerei was the one who was saying it's one of the best HMs in a long time. I'll be getting it soon too, just waiting for the right time. Still not sure whether I'll go retail or download though.

The trailer they have up in the e-shop is the GBC one, so I'd say that's probably a good sign...

That took Xseed way too long. I'll just wait a month or so and get EOIV, which is like exactly the same and probably way better. I'm guessing most of the people who make up this sort of game's incredibly small target audience will probably do the same. Should have localized boob ninjas instead!

Xseed's lucky they finally made it out before EO4. Now how about releasing Senran Kagura Burst on the eShop?

So, for everyone who's blamed Nintendo for the state of the Virtual Console, is now fair to blame the publishers for no longer wanting to take part? I can't imagine Nintendo decided to give D4/Neo Geo preferential treatment over companies like Capcom and Konami.

Now that there's no cost to rating digital games it will hopefully lead to more VC game soon!

Of course, Nintendo still has the minimum sales quota for Wii releases, and basically no VC game is going to hit the quota unless VC as a service gets updated to the Wii U... and there's still Nintendo's certification and digital manual costs... So I still blame Nintendo. They're the platform stewards. It's their job.

(I also think Capcom and Konami are terrible publishers, naturally)

Nintendo handles VC releases for their own platforms (NES/SNES/N64) though iirc, they license the 3rd party games and all emulation, testing, manuals, etc, is done by Nintendo themselves. Same for Hudson with TG16/CD, D4 with NeoGeo/CD, Commodore with C64 and Sega with SMS/Genesis. 3rd parties can push to get their own titles out (as Sunsoft was for awhile) but ultimately if Nintendo's not interested in bothering then it won't happen (like what happened with Bionic Commando NES).

The only systems where 3rd parties handle everything themselves are MSX (which just D4 and Konami have bothered with) and Arcade (Sega, Namco, Capcom, Tecmo, Taito, Hamster, D4).

I doubt it. There's no sales threshold for Japan WiiWare from what I've been told, and basically all VC stuff comes from there and is more or less curated by a couple longstanding Japanese publishers. The sales threshold was a quality assurance mechanism designed for western indies that went hilariously wrong.

But why on earth couldn't they get rid of it?
