HM64 is such a terrific game, but what are they thinking launching it a week before the Switch comes out?? To dust off an old chestnut, ain't nobody got time for that!

This Nintendo Download could be the calm before the storm. I'm assuming that, even though the Switch comes out at Midnight the next day, they'll probably announce what's going to be on the Switch eShop on Thursday. And, what's this about Shovel Knight? Are they hinting that it may be a launch game?

Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns (Marvelous) hits North America next week. I think Natsume is trying to steal some of their thunder...just a guess.

Why is Forma.8 not better highlighted! It's a metroidvania style game with some unique aspects to it and a beautiful art style. The demo Nintendo had over a year ago was such a tease. I've been waiting anxiously for this game

3DS VC continues to be neglected.

I had never heard of it, but looks interesting!


EDIT: Do what you just did, but delete everything but "youtube" and the equal sign and stuff after the equal sign! Kinda weird. -TB

I think Harvest Moon 64 is the first "true" third-party N64 game on the VC.

@DrFinkelstein Huh, for some reason I thought it was a racing game...

And why? I'll never understand why there isn't new stuff on all options each week. A small team should be dedicated to this.

@Mop it up

Forma sounds like Forza perhaps?

@J.K. Riki

Thanks for the fix. I for some reason can't ever remember how to do it. Can the COMPUTER just make it work? GOSH!

@DrFinkelstein Probably more that "forma" almost sounds like "formula" as in "formula one" type car. Plus there's an 8 in there and race cars have numbers.

... I'm not saying they aren't stupid reasons.
