    Ah, Tetris Axis! It's about time they put that on the eShop. I'll definitely download that.

    I'll keep an eye on reviews for LEGO City: Undercover, and I *might* bite Witch & Hero. Though I heard it's not that great. Still, the trailer was hilarious. If the price is cheap enough, I may not be able to resist...

    Wonder how big The Chase Begins is? Undercover was HUGE!

    EDIT- Yeah, may bite on Tetris Axis now that its a download.

    I wasn't really looking forward to the 3DS Lego game, but after the Wii U one I may get it.

    I was hoping for Nintendo to be like "remember how we said Earthbound was coming? BAM."

    Ah well. Soon enough.

    I am getting the Guild01 titles this week. Beware of this Harvest Moon, it's a DS port, the one to get is A New Beginning.

    @Zero

    It's going to be a Wii U VC release though. We're still only getting the anniversary titles until the big update next week (presumably Thursday?)

    It's not going to be on Wii VC? That's a bit odd. I just assumed that everything released on Wii U VC would also release on Wii VC.

    After thoroughly loving Lego City on Wii U, I think I will be picking up this one. It's kind of strange to be getting a "sequel" (or prequel) so quickly after the original game. Considering how close in quality it seems to be, it feels that way.

    I'll probably buy a hard copy though.

    So, I went to the eShop to download Tetris Axis, but despite it being in the "Now Available in the Nintendo eShop" category, there is no option to download the game. In fact, the description within (after tapping on the icon) describes the game as being "Available at your local retailer."

    WTF?

    @Zero If that were the case, then they wouldn't need to redo VC games to put them onto the Wii U. They apparently need to make two separate versions of VC games, one for Wii and one for Wii U, so I doubt they will go through the trouble of making any more Wii versions of VC games.

    Never mind, Tetris Axis is now on the eShop. Maybe it just wasn't "fully" uploaded when I checked, or something. Who knows. Either way, I'm glad I nabbed it.

    Only $10, too! Nice!

    I will eventually pick up Lego City at retail, but right now I have Luigi's Mansion and Fire Emblem to finish!

    Speaking of Guild01 games did you guys hear that there's going to be a sequel to Liberation Maiden, but that it's going to be a PS3 visual novel of sorts? Bizarre. Probably never get localized outside of Japan.

    Got all three games! First played Aero Porter... jesus, now I know why luggage gets lost and misplaced so easily in airports.

    Damn, Tetris Axis for a tenner is a good deal. I might grab it since I traded in my retail copy.

    Wha? Tetris Axis is just $10? Sold.

    So if we could the two Guild 01 games that I bought (Crimson Shroud, Liberation Maiden) plus Legend of the River King, Ikachan, and Tetris Axis...that means I'm set for a while.
