    Why not sign up for a (free) account and create your own content?
     
    Will definitely get BIT.TRIP SAGA and Wario Land II. I should get escapeVektor too.

    I wish Nintendo would pull an Amazon and alert us when a download goes on sale. I could've purchased another game with the money I would've saved.

    Wait, don't you already own BIT.TRIP SAGA? In one form or another?

    Don't forget about me. I own a physical copy, but relish the thought of having it on tap even more. ;)

    I have BIT.TRIP COMPLETE on Wii and all the individual WiiWare games. Haven't played them on 3DS yet.

    So I guess I triple dipped with BIT.TRIP SAGA (own all of the WiiWare games and the BIT.TRIP SAGA cartridge) and bought Wario Land II, Little Inferno and Trine 2. I also downloaded Ninja Gaiden 3 this week.

    @Deerock69

    I shall not forget you, good sir! I can see the appeal of having that game "on tap" as a definite incentive. I've got my eye on Mario Tennis Open for the same reason. Same for Code of Princess. I'm not downloading them until after Christmas, though. I'm hoping I'll get some pre-paid eShop cards (or at least Gamestop cards I can use to buy eShop pre-paid cards) as gifts, and I'll use that credit to get those games.

    Might even do that for Pilotwings Resort, even though the price for that launch game is ridiculous. I mean, the price may have been justified AT LAUNCH, but it's been nearly two years. Cut us some slack, Nintendo! Geez.

    @Secret_Tunnel

    I'm honestly surprised you haven't played the 3DS version yet!

    @ludist210

    Wow! Triple-dipped?!? Let me know if they fixed the frame rate issues that were present on the cartridge version, would you? If they did, I wouldn't mind dropping 15 bones on the collection...

    I'm hoping for a sale on Code of Princess. I would have the added incentive of having 2 copies in the house for multiplayer.

    Bit.Trip Saga is great for $15 (that's how much I paid at retail and I'm happy with it, even if Runner is the only game I really play), but Pilotwings Resort is still $40? Oh Nintendo, you crazy.

    It would be nice to have the eshop sales pointed out in the OP. Still haven't gotten around to dling Chasing Aurora what with Christmas businessand work. Soon.

    Wario Land 2 is fun so far. It's definitely different, but I'm liking it. I'm not sure if I like it better than the first game though.

    Is there a way to go to some sort of world map to revisit previous levels?

    @PogueSquadron When you beat the game once, you can access the level select screen.

    Wario Land II? Awesome.

    The first one wasn't so big on the retro game club, but I have high hopes to play this with you guys.
    Well.... As soon as my new charger arrives from mail, which is going to be in 7 days or so.

    Don't worry, the stage factory is still running. They're just storing the product in the Next Super Mario Bros stage warehouse.

    @Kal-El814
    I read somewhere that Trine and the like were on sale until... January 6th, or something?

    I'll probably pick up Trine. Chasing Aurora is tempting, too.

    Downloaded escapeVektor. I would recommend this game to each and every one of you were it not for having to hold down the R button the whole time to zoom out. The presentation is awesome, gameplay is interesting, great leaderboard functionality... but holy cow, having to hold down the R button the whole time just ruins the game. Having to keep track of where all the enemies are, figure out the optimal route through the level, time detonations perfectly, and hold down the boost button at the right time makes holding the R button down waaay harder than you'd think. It's just one more thing to keep track of. Having to fight the controls in a game this complex just kills the experience.

    Should have bought BIT.TRIP SAGA instead.

    EDIT: Played a bit more. I found that resting my finger on the R button in such a way that I'm using my weight to press it instead of my muscles makes the game playable.
