    This is a good batch! The Capcom games are greats.
    I wonder how Denpa Men 2 is... I got bored of the first one, but it was pretty neato while I was into it.

    Pretty cool that some quality software comes out alongside the Oracle drop.

    I'm interested in Denpa Men 2, but I'm going to have to prioritize my purchases for the next couple of months.

    Hmm, tempted to try out that Project X Zone demo but I already have it pre-ordered.

    EDIT: Project X Zone: Imperial Demo (Nintendo eShop on Nintendo 3DS - Available June 4)

    Oh I just noticed that it mentions the demo is only for June 4th at the top. Who reads that anyway?

    I don't understand that deal with Ghosts & Goblins and Mega Man X. Can you get both for $6.50? That doesn't make much sense, since Mega Man X by itself is $7.99, so it's probably pay full price for one game then get the other at a discount? But then why do you only save $2.50 on Ghosts & Goblins but you can save $4.00 on Mega Man X? You'd obviously pay full price for Ghosts & Goblins and save $4.00 on Mega Man X.

    Man, I'm confused...

    No, you save $2.50 on Ghosts & Goblins if you buy Mega Man X. You save $4.00 on Mega Man X if you buy Ghosts & Goblins.

    If you want both, buy Ghosts & Goblins at full-price, then get Mega Man X for $4.00...$9.00 for both as opposed to $10.50.

    It's convoluted, but I think it's the only way they could do it in order to also give a discount to people who had one of these games on Wii. Because if you owned MMX on Wii, then you'd get a $0.75 discount on the $1.50 purchase...

    I look forward to the Project X Zone demo. Next week.

    I'm debating about the two Legend of Zelda games. They are both great, but I own both on cartridge. Both are in perfect working condition. Should I spend the money and get the digital versions, too? Hm. Decisions, decisions.

    If I had a Wii U I'd buy Mega Man X for probably the 3rd of 4th time, but I don't, so I'll buy two Zelda games.

    @GameDadGrant

    A 3DS with the ability to play seven different Zelda games at a whim? Eight if you count Four Swords. Ten if you're willing to carry around the Phantom Hourglass and Spirit Tracks cards...

    C'mon, dude, how can you pass that up?

    I'm in the same boat. But I guess I might as well make my 3DS the ultimate Game Boy library machine, since I have all my other favorite games on there. That and I got a 3DS points card as a gift recently.

    It seems that MegaMan X skips Europe this week... :(

    @TriforceBun

    I'd rather get something new, but that's just me I guess.

    Seriously, I hear some non-Zelda games can be pretty good, occasionally.

    At first I got really excited over that golf game.

    Oracle of Ages for me. I played Seasons a couple years ago, my code is ready.

    Ages and Seasons! Maybe I'll bite on Seasons this month. I still have my Oracles cart and GBA SP's...The GBA SPs were kind of unreliable playing Dragon Warrior though, so maybe I might have to bite on Ages too.

    That is...if I have time.

    I would buy that in a heartbeat!

    Two Zelda games and upgrading Mega Man X.

    Since I never bought Mega Man X or Ghosts N Goblins on Wii Virtual Console, this sale is tempting to me. But, I can't do it. I refuse to buy any Wii U Virtual Console games (for more than 30 cents) until I know what will become of our games next generation.

    I took a pass on a free code for Denpa Men 2 (that I would have to play and talk about on my podcast) because the first game's demo bored me, and I didn't want to start a grindy RPG so soon before SMT4 came out.

    I'm glad about my decision.
