    Chasing Aurora on the Wii U eShop is also 50% apparently. I'm not sure what that comes to.

    I was worried about the switch to 3D, but it looks like Mario and Donkey Kong is mostly getting good reviews. Will have to grab it when I can.

    I'll download Mario and Donkey Kong and continue to wish Nintendo would make a direct sequel to Donkey Kong 94.

    It's interesting how this series doesn't have a defined gameplay style. The only two games that were similar in style were the two DS ones, other then that each one played very differently.

    Let's all bug Capcom to bring more exciting titles to the VC, guys!

    Solomon's Key and Xevious aren't terribly exciting releases. You can do better, Nintendo and third parties!

    Have these VC games already released on Wii VC? I'm a bit confused as to whether Wii U VC is mostly just going to be bringing over the stuff from Wii at a trickle, versus actually getting new stuff.

    Mini's on the Move is so mine when I get home.

    I've heard good things about Solomon's Key. Anyone else hear that?

    Well so far we're getting mostly Wii VC stuff, but we know Earthbound is coming so it's not as if new stuff is out of the question.

    Looking at that game, it reminds me of the puzzle parts of the first BioShock. I actually liked those, so I might be interested in this Mario and Donkey Kong game!

    $7.49 I think after the original price cut (it was $14.99 at launch), but hasn't there already been a sale on it for a while now?

    I'll check out the Revelations demo to see what it looks like, but $50 is to much for it.

    VC games don't interest me.

    You may be right. I just saw on GoNintendo's download post that it was mentioned so I thought I'd mention it here.

    Yeah, Solomon's Key is pretty good! Pretty unique too, no other game is quite like it. Even after however many years it's been out!


    Resident Evil Revelations is only $40 on Wii U. FYI.

    In the Wii U eShop too? Dang, I may get that digitally instead of retail then...

    Not sure about the eShop version. I just saw a listing at my local GameStop for the Wii U version at $40.

    Solomon's Key is awesome, but hard as balls on the later levels. The gameplay really holds up too, I feel like someone could reskin this game with modern HD graphics and it sell it on the eShop/PSN/XBLA/Steam and make a mint.

    I've never played Solomon's Key, but always heard good things. It may be time to jump in.

    I'm interested in Minis on the Move, but will wait for impressions.

    $7.49 and not worth it.

    It's odd they're just now advertising this because it's been $7.49 for weeks? Are we sure it's not a lower price? I didn't check the eShop when I was home for lunch...

    Oh, I guess someone will have to double check. I bought it a few months ago on a 50% off sale and paid $7.49.

    Shows $49.99 everywhere I've seen. Hmm.
