    Any Kersploosh! impressions?

    Eh, what the fuck. I'll just buy it. I'll take it all!

    Kind of excited for the Pokemon Mystery Dungeon demo.

    Be ready for lots of inane conversation and, eventually, some dungeon mystery!

    Downloaded the demo, ATV Wild Ride 3D, Nano Assault EX, and did the update for Wrecking Crew.

    I'll probably pick up Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D in the near future, too. That game was a fun little experience, and a pretty decent graphical showpiece early on in the 3DS's life.

    Do you think we will ever get Turtles in Time, Super Spike V'ball or Flashback?

    How about Uniracers? The VC overall isn't/wasn't terrible - just not as good as it should have been. And the 3DS VC is posting a lot of the same VC games the Wii did (NES etc)... I can't wait for Zelda Oracle of Ages etc - with a DS being my first handheld system I owned, I have missed a lot of decent portable games..

    @Smerd

    Uniracers will never come out on VC, it never even saw a second printing, all thanks to Pixar.

    It's true. Look it up.

    Picked up Mercenaries 3D. I owned it on cartridge, but sold it...still enjoyed it, and the price of entry is right. Plus it's always on-tap. Whee!

    Okay, so Nano Assault EX is totally badass, I love it, so much fun and it looks incredible, it looks like damn Vita game but in 3-D! Shin'en rules! My only complaint is that I wish there was some traditional space segments instead of just "inner space" action, I miss the space ships and what not from the first 2 games. Hopefully the next Nanostray game goes back into outer space.

    @ludist210
    Dude, I'm in the exact same boat, we should play sometime! I can't this weekend but next week during the week I'd love to kill some not-zoms co-op style!

    I'll keep an eye out for you. I'm usually on my 3DS most evenings, and I'd love to tear up some duo missions with you!

    As poetic as it is true. Speaking of which...

    Holy shit, you weren't kidding! It was like Metal Gear Solid up in there! The most painful part was that you couldn't set the text to display instantly. I saw some reviewer whining about that in some game or other a while ago, and I just shook my head, but now I totally get it. Kind of unbearable.

    That said! Once I got past all of that stuff, it scratched a bit of my Roguelike itch, with a nice layer of charm and some sweet Triple-D frosting on top. It was, ironically, encouraging when I died two minutes into the playable section. I think I'll finally jump into the series. This super-effective roguelike has intrigued me for far too long.

    However, the controls are a little wonky. I hate how B dashes AND brings up your items. The dashing itself (and the movement, in general) feels kind of shitty and discontinuous, too. The field controls are nice, though (analog, even!).

    @Anand Yeah the text thing really bothered me. I was holding down B the whole time just to make it bearable to read at a decent pace. And I didn't bother using the dash because you practically teleport, it's so fast.

    The dungeon crawling was okay, didn't intrigue me too much in that early section, but I liked the production values. Maybe it's just been a while since I played a Pokemon game, but it was geeky fun seeing Axew and Pikachu 3D models going on an adventure together. I probably won't bother dipping into the full game, but it does whet my appetite for more non-traditional Pokemon action. I'd go nuts for a Pokemon fighting game in the vein of Smash, or like an action/adventure or something.

    Now we have no excuses if we want to get a game up and running (you too, Charles). What a HASSLE changing carts used to be! Now, I mostly keep a DS game in the card slot; its kind of like how The Love Boat used to trot out old, washed-up guest stars on their cruises for laughs.

    @nate38
    Yeah, Ranger has always intrigued me, as well. I think I actually picked the last one up for five bones, but it seems irresponsible to play it without a screen protector. Or a Q-Tip.

    The super-fast dash movement is a pretty common way of covering large, empty distances in Roguelikes, but it felt so crappy in that demo. At least they could've accelerated and decelerated or worked it into the walking animation, or whatever.

    Something else that I forgot to mention: Your health regenerated pretty fast in that demo, but you didn't have to eat food to stay alive, like in a normal Roguelike. Kind of encourages some crappy practices, like walking back and forth to heal. I hope the full game limits you a bit more. At least the special moves are limited.

    @Anand Yeah I noticed that too. I never came close to getting KO'd because I always was fully healed by the time I found the next encounter. Seems like it would be a pretty easy roguelike. Which is fine by me, I'm not exactly a roguelike aficionado.

    I never played Nano Assault. Is Nano Assault EX the same game with more content? Or is it a sequel?

    How does Nano Assault EX work? Isn't the Wii U version a twin stick shooter? Is this a stylus based affair?

    Twin stick. The original version of the game released just before the Circle Pad Pro announcement, so it didn't support the peripheral. You had to use face buttons for shooting. EX does support the CPP, so it is true twin stick. No stylus.

    Same game but with addition of leaderboards, "survivor mode", CPP support, and some refinements to graphics and gameplay engine. So it's new and improved in just about every way, but it's the same campaign.

    My understanding of the story was that the first two games involved machines, ships, etc that were infected with a virus. These machines took on a life of their own once infected, and you were tasked with taking them down. In Nano Assault, you're actually fighting the virus itself at the molecular level.
