    When they said that AVGN Adventures was coming to the eShop “very soon” I had high hopes that they meant “this week”. I guess not. :/

    • thedeciderU

      please understand

  • Shota

    Comic workshop hmmmmm

  • JB

    I’m a big fan of Mr. Driller, so I’ll have to pick that bad boy up!

  • Phaz0n

    Weak week.

    • Epicstuf


  • Daniel Ireland

    I’ll stick to Shovel Knight and MK8, thanks.

    • ActivesiN

      same, and Armillo

      • Daniel Ireland

        I haven’t heard of Armillo. What’s it like?

        • ActivesiN

          its an action puzzle platformer, where you are on a planet and you can navigate around the planet similar to mario galaxy.
          pretty fun game and its like $6

    • bizzy gie

      Destiny beta goes offline tomorrow and the day after. Luckily, I got MK8 with WWHD Saturday. I’ll be happily busy those two days and after the beta ends.

      Is Shovel Knight any good?

      • Daniel Ireland

        I think Shovel Knight is great. It’s got great gameplay and music. Really has the retro feel to it.

  • Andrew W Garttmeyer

    I just want to hear from NES themselves that they officially stopped give a crap about the VC. Just tell us now, I won’t be as mad from week to week.

    • triplegamer3K .

      the nintendo entertainment system can’t talk,so i doubt it would say that.XD

  • Iflywright

    Methinks they got an intern in a broom closet transferring the vc games.

    So what happened to GBA games on the virtual console? Or DS games? Perhaps Nintendo should deliver on what they say, or be more clear in their announcements, as right now, GBA games on the virtual console equates to a handful of select titles, and DS games refers to Brain Age.

    It might just be my cynicism, but I’ll be laughing my butt off when the virtual console service ends up being so much better after this year is finished, and purchases no longer count towards the deluxe digital promotion.

    • Yen

      Don’t know why, but the Japanese eShop seems to have a more steady supply of VC releases.

    • Denvy

      I thought Mr. Driller 2 was a GBA game.

  • Daniel

    Still no Shovel Knight, Armillo, Unepic & Scram Kitty in Australia. No official announcements or release dates either. Nintendo needs to sort their localisation issues. I never had this issue with my Xbox live games on the 360.

  • Mark

    If Nintendo treated it’s customers internationally the way it treats it’s Japanese customers they would be the most loved company in the world.
