    Such an exciting week! Though to be fair, I am excited for the Bravely Default demo.

    Hey, I'll be getting both!

    Still...the news post Nintendo made had all of last week's games listed too. So I could have made the post longer, but it would have been repeated information. So bump that!

    I'll pick up X2 if it ever goes on sale.

    Hopefully this means X3 will make it eventually.

    It is 2014 and I'm waiting for Mega Man II to be available.

    Will download the Bravely Default demo once it's up, though.

    Is the eShop ridiculously slow for anyone else? I've been downloading the BD demo for ten minutes now, and it looks like it's maybe 10% complete, if that. My internet is slow, but not THAT slow... EDIT: yeah nevermind my phone was auto-downloading some crap. eShop's fine.

    Cool! I'll have to download the demo to see what all the hype is about.

    @Zero

    I really, really want X3 to show up at some point! I will get X2 today though.

    Wow, light update is light.

    Yeah really. Could they not do two Wii U VC games in a week? It's not like the service is bursting at the seams here...

    Bravely Default will be mine. Hyped for FF3-2 ;)

    Why are we calling it a demo? I was under the impression it was its own stand alone chapter that will tie into the real game, even including character stats and such. No?

    Like, a prologue kinda thing?

    Welp I'm sold on Bravely Default.

    I kept myself pretty in the dark for this game, so I had no idea it had a job system. I'm having a hard enough time trying to decide what jobs to pick just from what's given, and judging by the job wheel there are still so many more jobs to unlock!

    @carlosrox
    It's more like a stand alone collection of sidequests that don't seem to be connected to the main game. By doing certain things in the demo you earn sets of items that you're allowed to carry on into the main game, but any other items, character progress, equipment or stuff built in the village will be lost.

    EDIT: Unless the demo you guys are getting is different from the one I've played, in which case I'm talking out of my ass.

    Demo is amazing. Spent 10 hours with that sucker.

    @r_hjort Yeah I spent like two hours with it already...there's really no plot to it.

    It goes give you a solid look at the job/battle system and general progression feel of the game. Very old-school Final Fantasy feel overall with some neat social bonuses.

    I feel like I stole from someone for getting the Bravely Default demo for free. I've played this more than I've played other digital games. I LOVE it and can't wait to get my hands on the full game.

    I'm glad to hear you guys enjoy it, just like I did. It's bitter sweet in a way, since I get the feeling we better enjoy Bravely Default now, before Square starts crapping out yearly sequels full of paid DLC and ruin the first game by association.

    Yeah it's super fun, and it's pretty challenging, I got killed in my first battle by some life-sucking imps! I guess this section is pulled from somewhere in the middle-ish of the game because you're not fighting wimpy slimes.

    It says demo right on the icon! And the name of the game is "BRAVELY DEFAULT Demo".

    That said, it's one hell of a meaty demo!

    The battle system is going to take some getting used to, but I liked what I played of it. The high risk / reward thing is very interesting for a turn based battle system. It seems like your four characters are already aligned towards a certain class, and none seemed to be White Mage (no staff item in my inventory) so healing was sort of an issue that I was more willing to bitch about than actually do anything about. The street pass stuff seems interesting, as does this little village thing that takes real world time to fix up/improve/whatever is happening.
