    What is 2020 Super Baseball? I've never heard of it until Gui said "this isn't the droid I'm looking for."

    I'm all over the Heroes of Ruin demo, 2020 Super Baseball (if that's the game I'm thinking of) and Sakura Samurai: Art of the Sword. Woo! Good week, even if ambassadors already have the two NES games!

    edit - 2020 Super Baseball is NOT the game I was thinking of. Oh well, still a good week!

    Were you thinking of Base Wars?

    Ah. Indeed, that game was pretty great. 'Tis a shame they don't make 'em like that anymore.

    I've beaten Sakura Samurai twice, maxed out all the mini-games, and pretty much maxed out the garden too (requires a lot of walking, 10,000 steps in order to just get one of 3 trees to bloom to 100%), great game, a steal at $5.

    So, what did you guys think of Heroes of Ruin demo?

    Kirby's Pinball Land is the greatest pinball game ever made! I actually don't know if that's correct, but it's so awesome. I want to see them put out Pokemon Pinball too because I never got to play it.

    If I didn't have Kirby's Pinball in my little case with all my portable games, and a GBA SP+, I would fork over $5 in a heartbeat for it.

    Ok, I'm downloading it day one next week. In my opinion, Pokémon Pinball (GBC) is the best pinball game ever made, so we'll see how Kirby's stacks up!

    What is this update for Legend of Zelda?

    I'll be checking out the Heroes of Ruin demo and maybe a few other things as well.

    Sakura Samurai is now on sale in the shop, for those of you who were waiting.

    Crap, I came back from vacation a day late to get in on the Sakura Samurai sale! I'll end up getting the game eventually, but it would have been nice to save a few bucks.

    I've played it a bit, and I'm getting better the more I play. It's not particularly great just yet, due to the lack of variety so far, but it does the whole samurai thing pretty well.

    Not too shabby. I like it - my pre-order stands. Is anyone else buying the game?

    Adds Save States, changes icon on 3DS Home Screen.
