Why not sign up for a (free) account and create your own content?
I love Zen Studios, but I think I'll pass on Solitaire.

The trailer for that other game looks atrocious.

Yeah, pretty big let-down this week after several weeks of goodness...but it's all right I guess. I've got a lot to work on (plus NSMB2 is right around the corner).

If any of you don't have Super Mario Land yet, you should totally check it out. It's awesome and lovely

Wow, abrupt end indeed. Not even a "Game of the Weekend" this time around, eh?

I suppose the "Month of Mario" replaced that sale.

"Colors! 3D is our last “Game of the Weekend!" DL it in Nintendo #eShop for $3.99 from 9am PT, 7/27 – 9pm PT, 7/29."

Hopefully they bring it back at some point, but at least they're not forgoing sales entirely, since as you said, the Month of Mario is happening now.

Nothing much happening this week, but after a slew of goodness, I'm fine with that. It'll give me time to finish up Mole Mania and Wario (both of which are great).

Also, don't forget Theatrhythm!

Gustaberg (FFXI)
Movement in Green (FFX)
March of the Dreadnoughts (FFXIII)
The Crystal Tower (FFIII)

Meh...all later games or NES. Gimme 4 through 9!!

Didn't see that on their site. Will add to the OP.

EDIT: Erm...those were last week's tunes.

There is nothing "8-bit" about this update. Meh.

@TriforceBun Don't be a hater, The Crystal Tower is an awesome piece.
