Just finished Affordable Space Adventure, which was excellent, and I'm looking forward to diving into the rest as time frees up. Definitely worth the $13 price tag for the full collection.

Comment on Momotaro Dentetsu Game Coming to 3DS and Wii U by Matthew Tidman http://www.nintendojo.com/news/momotaro-dentetsu-game-coming-to-3ds-and-wii-u#comment-36506 Matthew Tidman Thu, 05 May 2016 02:59:07 +0000 http://www.nintendojo.com/?p=156345#comment-36506 Apparently it was a mistake on the broadcast. They forgot to swap out the info, and mistakenly labeled the old game as a new game. Apparently it was a mistake on the broadcast.

Comment on Round Table: NX and Zelda by penduin http://www.nintendojo.com/features/round-tables/round-table-nx-and-zelda#comment-36494 penduin Tue, 03 May 2016 15:20:50 +0000 http://www.nintendojo.com/?p=156206#comment-36494 Whatever the NX brings to the table, I'm half-heartedly looking forward to it, but it's starting to feel a bit like music - I just don't understand what the kids are into these days, and I'm happier with the good old stuff anyway. Nintendo has so far felt like a hold-out from better times. Splatoon and Star Fox Zero feel like HD, motion-assisted Dreamcast games, and I mean that as high praise. How Smash Bros 4 and Mario Kart 8 don't burn up the sales charts but Same Old Shooter #861 keeps crippled PCs flying off the shelves, is beyond me.

Comment on Round Table: NX and Zelda by Toadlord http://www.nintendojo.com/features/round-tables/round-table-nx-and-zelda#comment-36472 Toadlord Sat, 30 Apr 2016 01:29:52 +0000 http://www.nintendojo.com/?p=156206#comment-36472 Wow, this company is really tough to predict. I'm going to withhold judgement on the March release date for NX until I see the launch line-up, but my expectations are high. No NX at E3 is a real bummer though. It's tough to see many more Wii U projects in the pipeline, so it seems like it might be one sparse showing in June. Wow, this company is really tough to predict.

Can anyone here verify whether that's true? Not that I need to buy this game a third time, but still. :^) Xenoblade just showed up on the Wii U eShop, and claims that it supports the Wii U gamepad as a controller (not just a display).

It's a total steal, and I can't wait to play these games! That is, as soon as I make some room for them on my systems... Jumped on this just as quickly as I did last year’s deal.
