If you have not yet bought VVVVVV, this is a steal for 4.99. I bought it at full price and it's easily worth that price. A great game.

Played a bit of Bomb Monkey, it seems pretty fun so far! The game can be controlled using the stylus if you want to be quicker about it but works fine with the D pad though feels a bit awkward because of how you have to hold the system. The modes are pretty simple but endless is where the meat is at. Still, it's a pretty barebones package but I suppose at 5$ it's hard to complain too much Too bad there's no online.

I'll re-buy VVVVVV for 5 bucks! Seems like Nintendo finally gets it.

I've been wanting to play VVVVVV again... I thought maybe a 3DS release would be a way to go despite owning it on my mac, as apparently it controls well with the 3DS controls.

Man, that Marvel Pinball game looks BEAUTIFUL!

Why am I such a sucker for pinball games?

So, VVVVVV is on sale, huh? You know, its tempting, esp. from all the good things I have read about the game. Though, I really need to stop buying games until I actually complete a couple. Plus, its not like the game is that much at full price.

Plus, I need to hold off of buying games so I can save up for the 3DS XL. Why the hell would Nintendo release this thing only months before the Wii U?! Seriously, they might as well just released it last year along side the 3DS. Honestly, I've known all along that the XL was going to be Nintendo's next 3DS and i bet the reason its being released so soon is cause Iwata/Nintendo has not been happy with the overall sales of the 3DS in NA and they know us gamers in NA prefer bigger handhelds, just like the Asian market prefers smaller consoles/handhelds.

So, releasing the 3DS XL so soon is a way of bringing in more money for Nintendo in the NA market.

I have my money set aside for the Wii U and games come this Nov. I have about $700. I guess if I needed to, I could dip into that money for the 3DS XL and then pay back the Wii U fund. Thing is, I really don't want to sell my Zelda 3DS edition. I really like it. At the same time, I feel its a little foolish having basically 2 of the same thing, only 1 is bigger than the other. Once I buy the XL and transfer all my data from the Zelda 3DS, I could always ebay it or sell it on Amazon.

For now, I plan on keeping it. I guess it will just depend on my money situation when the time comes. Again, FU Nintendo for releasing the XL version so soon to the launch of the Wii U. Nintendo must think everyone is made of money. Then when the financial reports are posted, Nintendo will be like, well, why isn't the XL selling or why isn't the Wii U selling like hotcakes.....I'll tell you why Nintendo..cause you can't saturate the market with all this hardware, along with a bunch of software and expect people to just hand money over like its nothing. Times are still hard for alot of people, plus its no secret that the videogame market has been seeing diminishing sells.

Ok, I've rambled enought. Maybe I should get some sleep, considering I need to be at work here in about 3 hours. I'm going to be Mr Grumpy today, thats for sure. I'll just lock myself in my office and pretend to be in conference calls all day...or somethign like that. I feel a tummy ache coming on as well...I'll probably need to leave early today. Hee,hee....

I actually played through it on both my Mac AND my 3DS. Plus a bunch of the bonus stages too. That game is utterly fantastic.

@Tranquilo

I think overall we're happy Nintendo is catching on. Nobody said they were perfect, just like I don't hear anybody singing about how perfect Microsoft and Sony are. Nintendo's always gotten the gaming aspect of the business right; throwing the plebes a bone every now and then is a new concept to them.

Picked up VVVVVV. So far, looks like a nice, stylish little game. Man, life is cheap in that game!

You should buy VVVVVV if you don't already have it. Yes, you.

So, yeah, I'm weak and downloaded Marvel Pinball. I didn't realize it was another four tables! I take back what I said about it being an add-on; this doubles the amount of Zen Pinball tables available to me, and they're all great!

EDIT- I bought Bomb Monkey, too. We need to support these guys so Renegade Kid can put a Dementium sequel on the 3DS (plus, the game, although sparse in presentation, is pretty fun, too)!!!

Honestly, I bought VVVVVV again despite owning it on my mac. And it's a blast all over again. I want a sequel or some other original yet similar concept!

@DrFinkelstein

I'd be happy if they released the level-editor and new user levels for it honestly. That would keep the experience even more fresh.

I need you guys to step up your Marvel Pinball game a little! My Hero score is higher than all of yours combined!

Seriously, buy this game if you haven't already, and compete! Try the Blade table: it's more complex and fun than I anticipated. Read the instructions! There are some relatively easy ways to score big points.

I can't justify the purchase right now, I just picked up Metroid Prime Pinball. Plus, my high scores have been sitting on ZEN Pinball unchallenged for too long.

@anon_mastermind

I hear you. I tried! But I pretty much played Excalibur exclusively, and I suck on that table.

BUT, I heard you, and so I went and doubled your El Dorado score, putting my Pro score a bit above yours.

@anon_mastermind

For some reason I can't get the score online to update, so for reference: 120 millions, Pro Score: 262
