    got assassins creed 3 for $27 not bad.

    • Dark-Link73

      I got mine for $60! Yay!!…. oh, wait.. lol ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • Devesh

        Got mine for 10$ and got black flag for 35. Actually I bought Lego marvel at Black Friday for 25 for Wii u and returned it days later without the bill so they gave me and option to exchange it with ac4 for 10 more bucks because it costed 60 and Lego marvel 50 at normal price. So yeah got it for 35

    • cThreep

      I saw it for $12 at a Blockbuster Video that was being liquidated and shutting down. Didn’t get it though…but I got Just Dance 4 for cheap, cool, right?

  • lwlshintalwl

    I need MMX2!!

  • Laud

    Hey guys, just a reminder telling you to buy me stuff because my birthday is in 8 days.. on the 10th..


    So, yeah. Love you all.

    • Nintendofreak

      go to the hardware store and buy a lock and buy one of these thingis… or get a drill and do it the pro way

      • Laud

        And then you have to deal with two guys who think you’re being selfish and stingy with food. They’ll say, “dude, it’s just milk. I’ll go buy you a fuckin’ cow right now since you’re such a stingy dickhead.” and I’ll be like NO GUYS, YOU GOT IT ALL WRONG! and they’ll just be like PSHH.

        So, the best thing to do is move out when I can and tell people that dorms will always suck.

        • Nintendofreak

          sharing rooms has always sucked

        • TCar

          Tell your roomie to get a job or leave the stuff alone! Who cares what they call you!

        • erich80

          Of course, it’s not about milk, or bread, or whatever food; it’s about their reprehensible behavior and lack of judgement. I’m sorry for you.

        • Shota

          pathetic cunts. i hope you can move out soon

        • Nintedward

          Hammer a nail into the wall outside your bedroom window and put your food necessities into a carrier bag hanging off of that! It keeps it cool and safe!

          We’ve all been there bro ;0

          • erich80

            I like your breakthrough for the case, Nintedward, but depending on the place one lives, bye-bye food! It’ll get stolen in a heartbeat! XD

            Or the food will perish, if it is a tropical country… XD

        • Zorlac79

          I am a student too, and affording food on top of other necessities as well as games isn’t easy.
          My roomies keep taking my food too, all the time! But then again, I have to accept it since it is my wife and daughter! ;P

          • Rinslowe

            That changes the whole concept then doesn’t it.
            Good on ya. BTW do you work as well?

        • Nintendo Dragon

          I’d be like did you pay for the milk, you know what no you can have it puts laxative in milk next day and waits for the next time then steals his “girlfriend” lol

        • readypembroke

          With the milk, just put some damn laxative.

        • darkcreap

          I read about this issue (campus life and “food sharing”) not too long ago in a news site. One person suggested a method that worked quite well with the milk: he added a laxative to it. It seemed to work, for he claimed that no one stole him milk any more.

          You know, just a dose, strong enough for them to learn the lesson, but not too strong that something really bad might happen. Of course, do not threaten them to do so or say anything, that way they will never know if you did something or it was your milk in bad state. Nevertheless, they will not risk it twice.

        • Sdudyoy

          They have no right’s over your food, if they think you’re stingy than they need to get over it, you probably don’t have the money to pay for your food and there’s, (this is just an assumption of course, and even if you do have the money It’s still not their food,) I guess I would be able to easily tell them off because I really don’t care what people think of me, but I could see how it would be harder with Roommates, but really they should at least ask before eating your food, if they can’t afford there own food then they need to get jobs, you shouldn’t have to support them.

        • I am Error.

          He’s right, dorm life with roomies is sucky.
          It’s usually worth the extra cash to get a single room.
          True, even MORE debt, but no one steals your things,
          you can actually get work done, sleep when you want and bring back dates at all hours =)

    • Nintedward

      Haha, been there bro!

      Happy 2014 to everyone.

      • erich80

        Cannot be worse than (current year – 1).

        I’ve been saying this for a while… ๐Ÿ˜›

      • Arthur Jarret

        That could be DeDeDe’s slogan for the new kirby game!

    • readypembroke

      Can I read what you are saying in plain English? What are you? 4 years old??

      • Laud

        Yes, I’m four years old living on a college campus. I have no idea how I get away with it.

      • I am Error.

        I think it’s a generational thing. Spelling, punctuation, it’s all becoming a lost art. It’s very rare among my early 20-something FB friends to find one who can compose a complete and mostly accurate paragraph.

        • Laud

          Uh, I’m pretty sure you can understand my writing. What I think he means is the last sentence of my OP, but I did that to show readers how my experiences with room mates is driving me mad. >_>

          • readypembroke

            That’s what I meant.

    • Mitch Hall

      Haha, I have lots of friends in college who are facing the same issue. Happy birthday, though.

  • Dark-Link73

    So where are the “deals”?

  • erich80

    I’ll go for Mega Man X2! Never played it… ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    • Daniel Carvalho

      GO FOR IT! One of my first games alongside Super Mario World, and simply the best Mega Man X for me! You won’t regret it!

      • erich80

        Thanks for the tip, Daniel! Mega Man is my favorite video game character (tied with Luigi and Yoshi) and for sure I’m picking up X2 later today when I get home from work. It’s a shame I never played it before, but time has come!

        On a side note, I feel very upset when I see what Capcom has been doing to the Mega Man brand. And now, Inafune has departed… I do not have high hopes in seeing a brand new Mega Man game very soon.

        • Daniel Carvalho

          Mega Man Legends 3/Rockman Dash 3 was going so well, but then something happened between Capcom and Inafune that made the project go downhill. And Capcom ended up blaming the fans for it!

          It’s a shame what Capcom has done to the Mega Man franchise, but I think this might be for the best. It wasn’t the first time Capcom had a disagreement with Inafune (Mega Man X6 was made without his involvement, forcing him to change how Mega Man Zero would start), and he must’ve suffered a lot in their hands regarding his franchise. Recently, they wouldn’t allow new games for the fear of the new titles not selling well, and now they won’t even give him back his own franchise so he can continue what he started. We can let the series be a great memory for us while we play their old games on Virtual Console, and enjoy Inafune’s new franchise Mighty Nยบ9.

          • erich80

            Right. Here and there, VC has been a great wellspring of classic, worthwhile old titles. For me, it’s an amazing Wii/Wii U feature.

    • Leo

      You will LOVE IT!! This game is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!

      • erich80

        I got home so late yesterday that I didn’t have a chance to turn the Wii U on. But I’ll grab X2 today. The weekend is just around the corner!

  • Magnus Eriksson

    Amazing start at the new year Nintendo. This is great. You will probably be even more crap in 2014 than you where in 2013.

    • cThreep

      Yeah, Mario Kart and Super Smash effin’ SUCK! (JK)

      • Magnus Eriksson

        I dont see any of those games on that list.

        • cThreep

          Yeah but they’re coming out in 2014, the year that you predict will be worse than 2013.

    • Sheiky Baby

      Strong opinion, but definitely a good point, Magnus. The E shop needs MORE. Nintendo has a massive library, and it’s just sitting there collecting dust…. The same way some Wii U’s will be if they don’t step up in that department.
      I’m looking forward to some Gamecube games on there, and Gameboy advance games on my 3ds.

    • Leo

      What exactly did you play on Nintendo consoles in 2013?

  • hahahero

    A Link to the Past?

    • cThreep

      I wish.

      • hahahero

        Europe got it for the Wii U, still waiting on the North America release tho… thought it’d be here by now. sadface.png

        • D Moness

          yeah and we got absolutely nothing this update.

    • Jack5221

      Im kind of confused as to why they didn’t release Link to the past sometime before Link between Worlds came out.. After all the two games are connected and LBW would have been a much better experience if people got to play LTTP first. Don’t get wrong, LBW is perfect, but it would have been even better if they released its predecessor first.

  • CaesarGood

    Mega Man x2 just in time, I was just playing X and I am at Sigma stage 4. I was just thinking about getting this on the Wii’s VC and I think it was priced at 7.99 there as well. So it wouldn’t have made a difference or would I still have to pay a transfer fee? Now all we need now is Mega man X3, which was the last Megaman on SNES…

  • Denvy

    X2 sounds good to me. That and the Bravely Default Demo.

    • Flawless Victory


  • wober2

    yey chibi robo pricture finder! I am strangely excited for that. Awesome that nintendo has those ip’s ready to use.

  • Flawless Victory

    Megaman X2! Yes!

  • Dimitri Theodosakis

    Nintendo need learn do Real Sales such as Game & Wario 15% Sale not Classic Sale

  • Chad Dodsworth


    • Leo

      Yes! I love it! People complaining have no idea what they are talking about! This game is awesome!

  • Ricky__Spanish

    No discounts. No Mario 3, LTTP or Mario RPG.

    One lousy game a week now. Pathetic

    • Sheiky Baby

      I believe they’re probably slowing down due to the holidays just happening and are going easy on people’s pockets. I’d be pissed to see something I really wanted on sale after running my pockets on Christmas. They also need to realize that a ton of people got lots of Nintendo points from the best buy deal and want to spend em on stuff they really want.
      I have a feeling that they’re gonna give us some good stuff this month. I’m very happy with Dr. Luigi.
      One last thing though…


      That is all ๐Ÿ™‚

      • I am Error.

        By that reasoning they go easy on people’s pockets EVERY week. Regardless as to the quality/popularity of the VC title offered the fact does remain that it is usually JUST ONE title.
        With a massive library of systems to emulate and titles to pull from
        we find ourselves begging for Wii U VC versions of games the Wii VC already saw released.
        At this rate of back-pedalling we have a slight chance at purchasing most of the retro library by 2082.

  • ShinyLatios

    Pokebank :(?

  • Yoshi5081

    No more deals plz I don’t want the e shop going down again

  • Erik

    Is it me or did she for got to put CastleStorm because its an eShop title right? That game is a gem!

  • Rich Cole

    PS3 and Steam have just had fantastic sales, Xbox was ok, but Nintendo has just made sure it won’t see any of my money until Watch Dogs :/

  • Leo


  • Leo

    I have a question for people here: why Nintendo delisted DKC 1,2,3 from the Wii Virtual Console on November/2012?

    Nintendo owns the franchise and its assets, though considering what happened on the Wii Virtual Console it makes me wonder if we will ever see those games on the WiiU Virtual Console.

  • Geoff Hammer


  • Ducked

    Wii U eShop sucks. They need to add more Sega games, and bring N64 and GC games to the virtual console. Or bring better NES and SNES games.
