      1. Nope, Family Video. Right before the PS4 and XB1 were released Family Video had sales to get rid of old Wii, PS3, and 360 games. Everything they had was $7.99.

        1. Ridley, the Angel of Death

          Family Video is still up & running? I figured Gamefly, Netflix, Redbox, etc would have put them out of business by now. *looks them up on wiki* Oh. That explains it.

  1. On the fence about getting it since Nintendo still hasn’t created a proper account system and all my purchases and NNID are still locked to the console itself. Plus, it’s an 8.5 GB download.

    Unless there’s a good reason to get it, I’m willing to spend $100 on the physical copy.

    1. Can you elaborate? My circle pad is buried underneath a bunch of crap I’m not digging out, especially since the New 3DS is right around the corner. I’m never touching that bulky thing again.

      Won’t it be the same for the c-stick though? Well not exactly the same, but the control in general.

    1. Just go to the eShop. I haven’t checked myself but I’ll soon be downloading it. I think because it has Code in the name, some people might get confused.

  2. Gun Man Clive 2 and Shadow of the Ninja for me!!!! I don’t wanna get the steam demo I already know I’m buying it.

    1. Gun Man Clive 2 looks sweet, I’m holding out on any new 3DS games though until the 13th.

      I want to enjoy them in the splendor that is the new stable face tracking 3D. I had been talking about that for years with the 3DS, so glad Nintendo chose to improve the 3D instead of just dropping it.

      1. You know what. I wanna wait as well!!! Also… I’m glad to. I’ll admit I thought they should drop it. But then I realized i like it, it just needs improvement. Now I’m glad they kept it and I hope they keep it for the next handheld. There’s certain games like, Pokemon X opening title that look like they could look even better than the display resolution the 3DS is capable of. This tells me I hope the next handheld has at least a 720p hd resolution screen that way older 3DS games will look even better. But it’s funny I wrote a comment on review tech usa YouTube channel saying that even though the 3DS and NEW 3DS in reality has a poor resolution screen compared to even the cheapest few year old smart phone, I don’t care because the games are that good!!!!!! It doesn’t even matter much. Thats saying a lot in this day n age when you think about it. 😄

        1. Agreed, that is the bottom line for me. A good game is a good game.

          I’ll admit I was stubborn and stupid when I was younger, I was a snobby PC elitist. I played consoles still but I always dismissed them because it wasn’t PC quality. I couldn’t have been more stupid.

          Now a days I just play whatever, I don’t care what’s it on. I learned my lesson once I realized how many good games I was missing out on once I just gave them a chance instead of solely judging them and comparing them to the unrealistic standards of PC gaming that consoles probably will never reach.

  3. Does anyone think that 3DS games and Wii U eshop games are at a point now where it will be seamless transition as when the next console handheld release we just log into our NNID and download our purchase history like apple or Sony or steam? I really hope so. Especially for wii u eshop. For my 3DS I’m going digital with a lot of indie games.theres so many good ones ya know?

    1. You mean like pretty much every other company that sells digital goods besides Nintendo…

      I’m sure by then, it sure as hell better have it. If they seriously release successors that still use this same account system, I’ll lose it. The Wii U was already supposed to have this and here we are two years in hearing them say they have no information regarding this topic, they’re just aware of it.

      This is one reason why I even hate companies like this being so segregated, they should really work together on some things. Say if Nintendo and Sony were to work together with this account system, seeing as Sony has it figured out. These companies sharing ideas or helping each other would benefit gamers overall.
