    Why not sign up for a (free) account and create your own content?
    Seeing Astro written there makes me pine for a re-release of Astro Boy: Omega Factor. Treasure, make it happen.

    Weren't more Game Boy Mega Man games supposed to be out by now? I want more Game Boy stuff!

    Do you guys think Dragon Warrior 1&2 (GBC) and DW3 (GBC) will ever hit the eShop?

    I wish the Final Fantasy Legend games would come out and Final Fantasy Adventure too.

    Considering the NES versions never made it to Wii VC, I kind of doubt it. Not sure why though.

    @TriforceBun I'm not sure. When was the last time Square Enix released anything on the eshop? Chrono Trigger on the Wii? I wouldn't hold your breath on that one.

    I'd rather have some new version of the original games, as even the GBC versions (ports of the Super Famicom versions) are pretty archaic.

    They've put Secret of Mana and Final Fantasy VI on the Wii U eShop in Japan in June. I'm wondering why those haven't made it to America yet myself...

    I'm so down for Rune Factory 4! Haven't played a handheld one since the original. RFToD on Wii was...ok.

    I seriously have too many games to play on 3DS. Thank you based japanese developers.

    They didn't give a firm date at the time. And Capcom's community manager on their Unity boards posted that he is "hopeful" that they will launch this year. So I'm thinking we're going to be waiting a while...

    Apparently this week, Shin Megami Tensei IV is $10 off.

    Unfortunately, that means it's $40.

    Beginning of the end.

    Someone, probably Nintendo, is doomed. A sure sign of the apocalypse. Next thing you know, you'll be buying a PS4 and swearing off handhelds forever.

    I didn't realize Rune Factory 4 was due out so soon. I'll be renting that one for sure, I really enjoyed one of the others I played way back when.

    They did that Dragon Quest Collection on the Wii though. I was HOPING we weren't getting VC games because we WERE going to get that disc. So far...it doesn't appear so. Are we getting that Online DQ game at all?

    Donkey Kong 3 I think is underrated, though it's still not amazing or anything.

    Oh, right, thats what I meant to talk about.

    Do you like it? I think its no good. I probably prefer Donkey Kong Jr. over the 3 if you ask me.

    Even if we were, it was only DQ 1-3, so unless it was only $15 it was going to be a losing proposition.

    @Mr_Mustache I prefer both Donkey Kong and Donkey Kong Jr. over it, but then Donkey Kong 3 plays very differently from both of them. I think it's alright for what it is, but it's just not as compelling for me.

    ...REALLY? I thought it was a BUNCH of games. I'm probably wrong.


    Good 'ol Stanley the Bug Man. Can you imagine if he hit it off?

    The long-awaited return of Stanley the Bug Man!

    DK3 was one of my first NES games. If you're good, each game lasts pretty freaking long.

    I wonder how that Table Tennis thing is. I'd be a lot more interested if Wii Sports Club weren't right around the corner.

    Eh, I'm pretty satisfied with the $30 incentive from the launch period. I really like the idea of launch period incentives like that. It seems kind of counter-intuitive, since early adopters might pay more, but, on the other hand, it gooses early sales, spreads the word, and provides a valid alternative to waiting for a used copy.
