Why not sign up for a (free) account and create your own content?
I played the Fluidity demo and really liked it. Maybe I need to plunk down the 1200 points on it...

You should! The demo didn't even get to the fun part!

I picked up Explodemon! from the same developer last night on PSN. Looks good so far, and it's on sale this week. $7 I believe, and $5 for PS+ members.

I just checked the store and there's a new episode of Nintendo Show 3D up.

EDIT: There's an exclusive clip of Super Mario 3D Land on it so I had to skip it...

You guys know what's different in the Pokedex? I can't download it right now to check.

As far as I can tell, the update isn't even up. I checked and it says all of my downloaded titles are up to date.

If Nintendo at least had a better online store, more demos, an easier way to access said content and manage it, maybe I'd buy more WiiWare titles but as it is now, I rarely turn on my Wii because there's really no reason to.

How would you make the shop better? I don't find the shop all that more or less accessible than the PSN or XBLA. *shrugs*

On PSN, finding the latest stuff is as easy as looking at the top of the list.

On the 3DS, it's really unclear what's new, unless you happen to notice the "New" category after scrolling to the right a lot, wedged between two nonsensical thematic categories.

And now, VVVVVV is headed to the eShop.

Hey, they took a little too long, but it looks like Nintendo could do it right, actually.

I hope there are many, many more such announcements.

Holy hell. More win. Horizon Riders delivers, apparently! Checking the demo now...

No VC? I was expecting Metroid II. Oh well, I still have to download SML2.

Yeah... I still don't find it all that difficult to navigate. The eShop is way better than the DSiWare Shop. (I realize that's not saying much, but still)


Side Pocket is a Virtual Console game on the 3DS.

.... still, it's no Metroid II.

Seriously, though, you pretty much have to read the press release to know what came out. You can't know just by visiting the eShop. That's pretty bad.

I go to the eShop, and the first thing I see is SML2. Then the Pokémon update. Zelda Anniversary. BS category. Nintendo show. 3D games. Previews. BS category x 9. The House game.

Side pocket shows up in the VC category, but shouldn't all the new content be front and center? It would make sense to me...

Apparently there are two more Nintendo Videos that didn't get announced in the PR. One is another Blue Man Group video, the other is a trailer for an Extreme Sports movie.

That extreme sports one is a repeat and Blue Man Group is unfunny.

That cracked me up for some reason.

It's kind of sad how I force myself to watch every video on that channel. It's like when I got an HD Antenna and watched Desperate Housewives (with commercial breaks). I was like, "What the fuck am I doing?" and returned the antenna the next day.

@Guillaume Ooh, sweet. I already own it, but haven't played it. New content is nice though. When/if I get a 3DS, I'll check it out.
