    Star Stacker is a nice surprise, I've always wanted to give it a go even though by all accounts it's a pretty ordinary puzzle game.

    We're never gonna get Kirby's Dream Land 2, are we?

    Wasn't Amazon video already on the Wii?

    Can't wait to check out FE demo.

    @Guillaume I skipped out on Kirby's Adventure when I was a kid, so that game was huge for me as a kid. Great game.

    I hope we get some more demos for the Wii U eshop soon.

    More video services is nice to have; better than having less of them.

    Been saving the last of my Wii U eShop funds for The Cave next week. Really looking forward to that one.

    I wonder why Amazon and Hulu Plus still aren't on the 3DS. And where's HBO Go on Wii U for that matter?

    Tokyo Crash Mobs looks so insanely Japanese. I have no idea if it is any good, but I'm curious.

    @Guillaume

    Kirby's Star Stacker
    is a nice surprise indeed, I've never played it.

    Yeah, that's really weird about Kirby's Dream Land 2. Fortunately, I finally played it through the Wii Kirby's Dream Collection, but it sure would be nice to have it in portable form.

    Tokyo Crash Mobs looks wacky and good, need to hear some impressions.

    Fire Emblem demo, hellzyeah.

    Kirby Star Stacker? Never heard of it.

    When does the eShop usually update again?

    @PogueSquadron

    Typically noon eastern on Thursdays, though big releases happen at midnight on the day of their respective launches (typically Sundays).

    eShop is updated now. They have a new 'Nintendo Show 3D' today, but it's not really worth checking out. Jessie talks about Fire Emblem, Crashmo and Fluidity, and then reminds people that they can download demos. And that's about it. Nothing new, and nothing really exclusive.

    I thought this show would live up to its promising beginning when it launched last year. They had exclusive news, sneak peaks at upcoming games, and even codes and passwords you could use in games to unlock stuff. But now? It's just all advertising. And while I don't mind advertising (that's all this show is for anyway, I know that) I'd like to have some stuff that's only available from the show itself. That's not asking too much, right?

    I never thought I'd say this, but they should bring back Nintendo Week. Even with the corny jokes Nintendo Week had a lot more personality than Nintendo Show 3D. It felt more like a show and less like than ad.

    Nintendo show 3D is worth it for the ending. Dat 3D effect...

    Fire Emblem is awesome! Really engaging right from the get go. I like how their approach is similar to the first FE on GBA with your character being a tactician. I'm really excited to alter his appearance and stuff in the final version. The animations looks really lively and it's really cool that you can zip right through them. I don't think I'll even need to turn off the battle animations because they move so quickly. The only thing I might miss is polygonal characters on the map, but even then, the resolution of the 3DS probably isn't high enough to make it look better than a jaggy mess. Love it so far. Enjoyed it a lot more than the past console outings so far, for some reason. I think it's the speed of the game and being able to view the game through your own character's eyes.

    I could be wrong, but I think Tokyo Crash Mobs was more expensive than $5.99 when I saw it on the shop. I snagged Gunman Clive on my way to grab the Fire Emblem demo.
