Hmm.... fun.... fun.... touch? I do like me some mini-golf.

Punch-Out! is always fun but not really sure I enjoy NES games on the 3DS, why not release Kid Icarus for Gameboy instead?

This whole "VC games on the 3DS" thing is really irritating me. The Ambassador stuff was great, but I hate having valid spots filled by games we've played and owned a million times.

I make this complaint every week, but that's because Nintendo's been doing it every week. Give us better stuff, NOA!

Give us Wario Land, Kirby's Dream Land 2, or...well, ANY Game Boy games already!

And it's just worse than for those that have purchased it on the Wii, that there's no way for them to play it on the go on their 3DS. Sony did it right with their classic games, why can't Nintendo come up with a better system that lets us do this?

Punch-Out is cool I guess, but I'd rather see some games that haven't been re-released already. I wouldn't mind an NES game if it was one that I couldn't already buy on my Wii, although I admit I'd rather see some more GB games (and it seems more likely that there would be more un-re-released GB games than NES games).

I want Wario Land!

Yeah it's nice to know that I own Resident Evil 2 on PlayStation, not just the PS3 but the PSP, PSVita and probably even the PS4. The fact that Nintendo resells the same ROM over and over for each system is practically criminal.

@VofEscaflowne and @deathly_hallows

Agreed. Technically, that's how it should be. Aren't all games tied to a Club Nintendo account? So why can't it work that way?

Nintendo can make up for this by letting the Wii U use VC games from both the Wii and 3DS. Make it happen, c'monnnnnn...

I'm right there with ya.

I guess the only thing we can do is buy the Game Boy games that get released, and ignore these. Though we're a drop in the ocean.

Yeah, and I'm a sucker for Punch-Out!!...having it with me on the go would be very convenient...

Fun fun minigolf touch will be mine. 5 bucks seems like a fair price.

Same. But I'm holding out in hopes that it will eventually become a Club Nintendo reward I can get "for free" with my Club Nintendo coins.

In an odd twist of fate, that game I think I'm going to download this week is a DSiWare game. PopCap may make "casual" games, but man. They are a lot of fun and kind of addicting...!

I'll add my voice to the VC choir, but Mini-Golf could be very fun. I'd rather support Shin'en than Gameloft.

Mistake or not, it seems the Game Gear games are already up on the eShop.

EDIT: Or not... some people apparently jump to conclusions too fast. So did I apparently

Someone download the mini-golf game and then tell me if it is worth it. I'm too cheap to spend $5 to find out.

I'm likely to DL it as soon as I get home.

Hmm, apparently the mini-golf game is basically just an upgraded port of the WiiWare game?

Disappointing, but since I didn't play the WiiWare version, I'm likely to give this one a shot. I'm a sucker for golf games.

Seeing those shots make me wish that Tecmo would do a Super Swing Golf game for the 3DS. I'd buy it on the first day with no questions asked.

Indeed, it is. I remember that one getting mediocre reviews, so I stayed away. I hope they fixed it up for the 3DS eshop.
