    Why not sign up for a (free) account and create your own content?
    15 bones for a Dr. Mario clone? No.... 8 bones would make me more likely to buy it.

    Where the F is Super Mario Bros. 3?!?

    I was wondering that too. Didn't Nintendo promise it would be out on both systems before year's end?

    Didn't the WiiWare Dr Mario game cost less than that...?

    It was $12.


    Slight differences. L-shaped pills (four blocks instead of two), new ways to attack in multiplayer, and Virus Buster from the Brain Age games (something my wife will love). It could be worth a spin...but I'm not tempted right now.

    Yeah. Pretty sure, anyway. I'll have to go back and re-watch that Nintendo Direct from...October, I think it was?

    Ditto. I want, but not now. Not at $15 bucks. Not when I can buy tons of awesome games on Steam for way less.

    This is the first one in, what, six months?

    Here it is: the Nintendo Direct from August of this year:

    At 13:24, it is said that Super Mario Bros. 3 will be on the Wii U and 3DS eShops this year.

    Pokémon Bank is $4.99 per year, not per month.

    @ludist210 It was $10, not $12.

    Wario Land 3 was in August. But yeah... been a while... I've been a bit disappointed with the amount of games published for the GB VC. I guess games like Solar Striker, Survival Kids and Trip World are a bit obscure so I'm not shocked they haven't seen the light of release (yet... hopefully) but we haven't even received Operation C, Metal Gear Solid, Warlocked, Kid Dracula and Castlevania The Aventure II: Belmont's Revenge . Thankfully the Mega Man GB games have been announced. I'm really looking forward to the Xtreme series and Mega Man IV, V.

    Pfffft, I'll spend $15 for Dr. Luigi. I trust his diagnosis at least 40% more than Mario.

    I was excited to get Dr. Luigi for Trish since she plays Dr. Mario like mad... But $15?

    Unlike my buddy Stache, I've been spoiled by Steam sales and the like. I'm ruined!

    @Mr_Mustache Dr. Luigi is good, but he isn't in my insurance network. It's not worth switching to the highly expensive Mushroom Kingdom Select plan when my family's deductible is capped at 1500 coins a year on my wife's Mushroom Retainer company plan. And besides, Dr. Mario may not have all the fancy L-shaped medications that Dr. Luigi has, but he has a much longer track record, and he and his staff know my family's medical history going back some twenty years. And the princess's landmark insurance exchange service STILL hasn't been fixed.

    He also has a history of mistreating animals and being a money-hungry miscreant. I don't know if I'd want a guy who spends the majority of his time crawling through sewers digging for gold coins writing out my prescriptions. If that's good enough for you, why not just sign up with Dr. Boogerman? They're probably just as clean at the end of the day.

    Dr. Luigi's pristine white coat, well groomed mustache, history of removing bad things from good places (I suggest you read his first book on a Mansion he inherited), and the amount of effort he put forth selflessly finding his brother (who was missing for quite some time) gives me the confidence I need in a doctor.

    @Mr_Mustache You mistake Dr. Mario's fundraising ventures for the debilitating greed that runs rampant through the healthcare industry. Dr. Mario is one of the few physicians who is trying to STOP the healthcare industry from holding our very lives hostage (see: Dr. Luigi charging $15 for a health exam, just outrageous). And you know why Dr. Luigi pushes those gargantuan, L-shaped pills? He knows his patients will choke on them and have to spend even more on medical care. While the kingdom's less scrupulous physicians are operating with big pharma stuffing their wallets, Dr. Mario keeps his fees affordable by making money elsewhere. If he does so by unclogging our Buzzy Beetle-infested sewers, all the better.

    I'm sure I'm not the first to mention it, but I feel that Dr. Mario might just wear too many hats. He's a Jack of all trades, Master of None. It isn't the globetrotting that bothers me so much (Doctors need a vacation, afterall), but what about the alarmingly high number of positions he's held? How do we know where his practice ranks among his jobs? Does he value that over his Refereeing gigs? How about working inside of a Pinball machine? I want to know that my future is secure with my doctor; these other things he does seems kind've dangerous..

    Those "gargantuan, L-shaped pills" that you so callously discarded are actually a revolutionary *new* capsule and a cost-cutting measure by Dr. Luigi and Co. They act as TWO (2) "normal sized pills," the same ones that Dr. Mario is charging $10 for (and in some cases $12); do the math, you're going to need to take two trips for the same amount of medicine, and end up paying $20 (or $24). This gives Dr. Luigi's patients the freedom to spend money elsewhere, and a contributing reason that he's been declared Man of the Year.

    Also, I have it on good authority that Dr. Mario is wearing a rug. If he can't be honest to you and himself, who can you trust?

    Would like to get Castle Storm, if the eShop wasn't under-going renovations. NOOOOOOOOOOOK!

    Just saw that it was a tower defense game, so I got Assassin's Creed 4 instead.
