    Just DK for me, but not on the eShop. I used to like playing Ice Hockey with friends on the NES, but I doubt it would hold my interest for more than a few minutes now.

    This. Also, Super Mario Bros. 3. It's not like I need either one, but they would be nice to have available.

    Weapon Shop de Omasse got a very good (scoreless) review at Siliconera. I may have to pick it up after a few more reviews roll in.

    Just in time for me to finish Attack of the Friday Monsters, which I'm enjoying for all its peculiarities. Liberation Maiden can wait a little longer.

    I'm getting Weapon Shop as soon as Nintendo decides to put it up on the eShop. I checked around 11 AM and it wasn't up.

    Nice, I will upgrade my Ice Hockey. Love that game especially 2 players.

    Getting DK too, but im away from my Wii U until Saturday night.

    Weapon shop looks fun, will wait for impressions.

    Wow, after solid reviews from Siliconera and Destructoid, Weapon Shop is getting slammed on Metacritic in the early going. Also, apparently it's like 8 hours long? I was expecting much shorter...I'm skeptical that the concept could hold me for that long.

    Guess I'll hold off for at least a little while.

    It's pretty great so far, though I can see it get repetitive if that's what the reviews were picking at it for. Songs have already started repeating when creating weapons so I doubt there's a huge variety there, unless if more start appearing as my shop levels up. Still, the writing and characters so far have been very enjoyable with the way it's set up. Each weapon you sell is installed with what the game calls a "Grindcast," which makes it as if each of them basically live "tweets" their adventures, from general dungeon exploration to battling monsters and whether they're victorious or not. There's many laugh out loud moments and the game generally pokes fun at traditional RPGs, which makes going between this and Bravely Default just hilarious. The only downside is that these "tweets" appear on the top screen at any given time, whether you're creating weapons, polishing them, or just navigating menus. It quickly becomes overwhelming to follow what's going on if you have several characters updating you. Thankfully you can check up on it later but it's not set up for easy navigation. Still, I've enjoyed this a lot so far with what I've played so I'd recommend it if you like this type of quirky game

    SMB Deluxe sounds great in theory but I don't know if I can go back to that tiny resolution. If they redid the game with the full NES resolution, that'd be something else. Would prefer it on Wii U though.

    Did anyone even download DKC:TF? There hasn't been a post about it and it went live at midnight, right? Then again, I know not everyone here is a night owl.

    I downloaded it last night, saw that it completed before I went to work this morning. Haven't had any chance to play it. Gotta finish up Xenoblade again (I'm basically at the final boss) so hopefully get some time in this weekend.
