Still no Shovel Knight, although they've submitted their final version for release so it shouldn't be too long. So annoying though that their "few week" delay of the game is turning into a two month delay. I understand though, and I'm sure they've been through hell with it. I just wanna play it!
Guess I'll also check out MOON Chronicles - I (shamefully) never finished this game on DS. Maybe I'll have better luck with this "remake" since it's likely I won't get bored and quit halfway through. It's being broken up into smaller chunks, so if I play just a chunk at a time, I should be able to see it to completion.
Well, well, look who finally stumbles onto the eShop. I would have paid full price for a digital copy of Wii Party U day one, but no, Nintendo decided to do a stupid physical bundle only. Well, I bought the bundle, but at $20 on boxing day. Hope Nintendo learned their lesson.
Ugh, Mega Man IV's slowdown seems even worse than Mega Man III! Also not sure how I feel about the charge shot recoil. I like the idea of giving the charge shot a downside, since it's kind of cheese, but the awkward shift a few pixels back and into a jumping state (and thus unable to jump) is kind of a janky way to do it. This game also got the crappier half of Mega Man 4's robot masters. Toad Man!
Moon Chronicles intrigues me. I bought the original Moon, but gave up on it. This new installment seems very Metroid Prime Hunters-ish. Does anyone know if it plays like Hunters? I really liked that game (for its multiplayer anyway), and thought it controlled very well.
