Too bad they can't bring those out to the 3DS. Despite, you know, the system being perfectly capable of playing NES, GB, GBC, and GBA titles. For that matter, why are the GBA releases only for the WiiU as well (from prior weeks)? I want to give you money, but I have no reason at all to buy your console otherwise!

I think you answered your own question slywink  Making games like NES Remix, Earthbound, and the GBA VC releases WiiU exclusive gives people another reason to buy the console, especially people with a soft spot for Nintendo's classic library.  It worked with me - Earthbound and NES Remix helped push me over the edge into buying a WiiU.

As for this week, I'll be getting -
Day One - NES Remix 2, Demon Gaze
Someday - Tesla Effect:  A Tex Murphy Adventure

I already had most of these (a lot of them are past PS+ games) but I picked up Braid, Red Faction : Battlegrounds, Tales of Monkey Island, and World Gone Sour.
124  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: GoG and GMG Weeklong Sales on: April 18, 2014, 11:07:21 AM
GMG has reduced Thief even further to $16.99, or $13.60 with the discount.

It was hard to resist a Wii U after Super Mario 3D World released, but Mario Kart 8 looks so absolutely cool that I caved in and ordered one. I'm not a fan of the Gamepad, does the Pro controller serve most games well? In particular, 3D World and DK Jungle Freeze?

It should work fine for those games.  Mario barely uses the pad, and DK doesn't use it at all.

Here's an amazing-looking trailer showing off some of the game's locations.
127  Gaming / Portable Gaming & Apps / Vita games coming to US on: April 15, 2014, 09:27:36 AM
Three Vita games have been announced for release in the US - Oreshika : Tainted Bloodlines, an RPG based on Japanese mythology with a kind of Okami-looking artstyle, Freedom Wars, a futuristic take on Monster Hunter, and Soul Sacrifice Delta, an enhanced version of the original Soul Sacrifice.  Also, Gamestop is listing Tales of Hearts as an upcoming release, although Namco Bandai has yet to confirm the game's release.

You think your thread is better, just because it has information and fancy pictures?  Tongue
131  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Civilization : Beyond Earth? on: April 12, 2014, 12:11:39 PM
Firaxis will be debuting their new game at PAX today - Civilization : Beyond Earth, which looks like it will be a cross between traditional Civ and Alpha Centauri  icon_cool
132  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Age of Mythology coming to Steam on: April 11, 2014, 08:51:03 PM
Greenman Gaming has this available for preorder for $23.99.  If the general 20% off voucher works on this, that would bring it down under $20.
133  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (04/07) on: April 11, 2014, 09:06:29 AM
Disney Magical World, their take on an Animal Crossing-style game, is also out this Friday for 3DS.

Several years ago, Burger King had a dollar menu with some unusual items on it, including sourdough burgers and some sort of taco-like thing.  I really liked them both, and then they took them away frown  At least they brought back icees.
135  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Marvel: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on: April 07, 2014, 09:47:56 AM
After reading some spoilers about how the new Captain America movie will impact Agents of SHIELD, it looks like we're in for every more of a "game-change" than we thought.
136  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (04/07) on: April 07, 2014, 08:36:53 AM
Warlock 2 : The Exiled is also out on PC this week.

Day One - nothing
Someday - Warlock 2, LEGO The Hobbit
137  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Age of Mythology coming to Steam on: April 03, 2014, 09:56:41 PM
Similar to the updated version of Age of Empires 2, an updated version of Age of Mythology is coming to Steam on May 8.  It seems rather pricey at $30, although you get 20% off (bringing it down to $24) if you preorder.
138  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: The Netflix Instant Watch recommendation thread on: April 03, 2014, 08:38:45 PM
They've added the first season of Young Justice.  I haven't watched it yet, but I've heard lots of good things about it.

142  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/360/XB1/Ps3/Ps4] Dragon Age: Inquisition on: March 29, 2014, 01:38:50 PM
They later clarified the information about the endings.  There will only be a few unique endings, while the rest will be variations on these based on your decisions throughout the game.
143  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/360/XB1/Ps3/Ps4] Dragon Age: Inquisition on: March 29, 2014, 12:07:39 AM
There are some new details here regarding which areas of the world will be included, companions, dialogue, and multiple endings.

Quote from: Gratch on March 27, 2014, 01:31:16 AM

I started from the beginning with a Crusader.  The only difficulty options available were Normal and Hard.  Does Hard give me any extras (loot, XP, gold, etc)?  I switched over after the first couple hours, but am finding it to be...well...Hard. Thinking I might start again on Normal if there isn't any substantial advantages.

You wouldn't need to start over, as you can change difficulty at any time now.
145  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: Half-Minute Hero 2 and Shining Hearts on: March 26, 2014, 08:05:16 PM
A short four years later, and Half-Minute Hero 2 is finally coming to the US.  Only Steam is certain for now, but there will be "announcements" so a PSP release is also possible.
146  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/XB1/PS4/360/PS3] Thief on: March 26, 2014, 12:45:50 AM
The PS3/PS4 sale is a flash sale, so it ends Thursday rather than running all week.

It looks like this is on sale this week for $30 digitally through both MS and Sony.

looks like it's only this price on PS3/PS4

The 360 and XBOne digital versions will be $30 from 3/28 to 3/31.

149  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: What are you buying this week? (03/24) on: March 24, 2014, 12:21:34 PM
I'll be getting Bioshock Infinite : BAS 2 as part of the season pass.  I've successfully resisted the lure of Reaper of Souls as I await the PS4 version.  I just hope it's not too far off or my resolve might crumble.
150  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PC/PSN/XBLA]Sacred Citadel ..also Sacred 3 about to be announced? on: March 20, 2014, 10:52:39 AM
The release date for Sacred 3 has been announced - August 26 in North America and August 22 in Europe.  There's also a new gameplay trailer at the link.
151  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Re: Steam Deals Thread: Daily, Weekly, Midweek, Weekend and all other sales! on: March 19, 2014, 08:33:02 PM
Episodes 3-6 of Winter Voices are on sale for $.49 each ($4.99 regularly).  The first two episodes appear in the Blink Bundle.  People were unhappy that the bundle contained only part of the series, so the person running the bundle got the developer to put the remaining episodes on sale for 90% off.

I wonder if the 360/PS3 game will be a companion game to the PS4/XBO version, like Liberation was to AC3.
153  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS3/Vita]Final Fantasy X HD/FFX-2 HD on: March 19, 2014, 01:33:46 PM
Even after seeing videos and screenshots, I was still surprised at just how good the game looks.

Quote from: The Grue on March 13, 2014, 04:00:15 PM

Oh, one change which I am not so sure about yet as I haven't run into it, but thinking about it, not sure I like is that enemies will only respawn so many times.  So you can't just farm over and over and over.

According to the Gamespot review, regarding the respawning -
The grinding opportunities are still there, and there are in-game items that force enemies in a given region to begin respawning again (and make them more powerful, to boot).
155  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS3/Vita]Final Fantasy X HD/FFX-2 HD on: March 18, 2014, 09:36:15 PM
I haven't started the games up yet, but the special edition packaging is very nice.  It comes with a hardbound book with 24 pages of art and the disc in a plastic case attached to the last page, and the art and packaging are beautiful.

I've never done one of these four-packs before, but I guess we'd need someone who is set up to accept Paypal payments to buy the game, who we would then reimburse.
