    Why not sign up for a (free) account and create your own content?
     
    @nate38 I dunno, it's true that some of the progression related to the brawler attack power-ups is handled with colored blocks, but a lot of other power-ups are more Metroid-like in that you get them and they expand your ability to move and that is how you progress. I felt like this game got the "spirit" of Metroid progression through interesting power-ups that expand your mobility a lot more than most Metroidvania games do.

    This reminds me that I have the cartridge of Mario Tennis Power Tour but have never played it. Will there be some sort of retro club for the game, or is it not high-profile enough?

    @Mop it up

    You could nominate it for the next RGC after Earthbound or you could gauge interest in forming an ad hoc club.

    There has been some discussion on the game already, the game is often said to be a Metroid-style map with brawler combat.

    ..Muramasa?

    @Mr_Mustache
    Nah, Muramasa doesn't really feel like Metroid at all. Guacamelee has actual platforming and such (not the same scenes recycled over and over).
    The fight system and sword crafting in Muramasa are wonderful though. It's one of my favourite games of last gen.

    Lots of good stuff lately. I hope that people actually buy it.

    As for myself, I don't have the opportunity. I haven't even had the ability to download Wii Sports Baseball since it launched. Oh, woe is me!

    It's been on the Vita all along, but cool that it's on more systems now.

    @deathly_hallows LOL Vita.

    Actually, I usually don't agree with Carlos' "system it belongs" stuff but this game has so many specific references to specific old school NES franchises that it felt odd that it wasn't on a Nintendo platform.

    Guacamelee is a game that doesn't interest me one bit. Not sure what it is, but the game just looks stupid. Then add in that is $15. I'm definitely not a fan of the art style, just looks el-cheapo to me. All the videos I've watched showing the game, it's gameplay, ect. just does nothing for me at all. Only way I'd ever play it, is if it was free and even then I doubt I would like it, but if I did end up enjoying the game, I would admit it. Hell, I don't even like the name.

    Sorry, this one is not for me.

    B-but the name is funny!

    @deathly_hallows
    Yeah, the game looks great on the VITA, and it has crossplay with the PS3. That's good stuff.

    Regardless, it's good seeing it on the Wii U.

    @gamewizard65

    It's kind of weird how some people are willing to pay 60$ for a game that'll last them maybe a couple of hours longer when 15$ for a 6-8 hour game is suddenly too much. Add in that it has great replayability due to it's type of gameplay, challenge rooms (apparently even more with this version) and I also imagine the game is longer than the 6-8 hours I mentioned above due to the added bits of the story mode. Plus the game actually looks gorgeous in motion and on the big screen.

    Well as discussed before this game was funded by Sony, at a time when Nintendo was still a little anti-indie, and it was developed specifically for the Vita and PS3, so they always felt perfect on those systems to me. On the Vita it's practically miraculous, a game this beautiful and detailed on a handheld? Wowzers.

    I do agree stuff like this and Shovel Knight feel appropriate for Nintendo platforms though, although I like stuff like this on handhelds, just a personal preference.
