Why not sign up for a (free) account and create your own content?

Probably because a system's life span is quite a few years and they want to be able to have enough titles to last those years. Releasing everything at once would make people ignore everything that isn't Mario, Zelda or whatever other classics that system has.

I understand that, but 1 game a week to me is silly. Maybe only 1 when it envolves one of the big names but the rest of the weeks bring more.

So I played through the Crush3D demo, aced all three levels with all rewards. It's cool, but if that's all there is to it, I'll wait for a price drop if I purchase it at all. The production values are good, but that could have (and probably should have) been designed as an eShop game.

Agreed. I liked the demo and I'd pay 10 to 15 bucks for a digital version, even if there was less content.

NOA is really falling behind on VC releases, even compared to Europe. Japan is waaaay way ahead, of course.

I know not everyone is an ambassador, but seriously. Only games and for those who already own metroid, one one game is made available. And sorrry, demos do not count. Like, wtf? Not that I would download and buy games weekly, but this is pathetic.

Speaking of Nintendo Video... is anyone else stuck with that Night of the Living Carrot from a damn long time ago? It's been in my list and won't go away

Nope. Mine refreshes pretty regularly. I haven't had that come back since they started selling all of those videos on the eShop. Maybe try deleting and re-installing the channel? Or is there an update available?

No update, though I guess I could try deleting the channel. Or are the files on the SD card sorted by name easily enough that I could just delete the video itself?

EDIT: Nevermind, I just deleted it anyway. It's just redownloading the videos and hopefully I don't have to deal with those nightmarish carrots ever again
