    Chibi Robo is on my radar, it looks so quirky.

    Do you now have this on NES, SNES, Wii, or GBA?

    @Jargon

    I've owned it on NES, SNES, Wii, and GBA.

    I'm perfectly willing to buy the digital version for my 3DS, if Nintendo would JUST LET ME GOD DAMN IT.

    Seriously I don't know what could be Nintendo's problem. They are usually so willing to take my money - I can't imagine what the hold up here is.

    @GameDadGrant

    Maybe they're holding back on it to make it the first cross platform purchase in NA. What better way to have it be one of their most popular VC games?

    Yeah probably not

    @GameDadGrant

    I can understand being willing to buy it despite having other means to play it. I can't really understand being so anxious to get your hands on it again.

    @VofEscaflowne

    You mean like cross-buy?

    Yeah probably not.

    I can't explain it either, LOL! But I definitely want it!

    Played the Chibi Robo demo. It's fun but not sure if I really want this right now. Capturing photos is really a challenge in itself due to the 3DS camera being total shit and there being no flash. Even rooms which are lit fine makes it hard to capture objects which you think are well it but aren't showing up clearly enough on the camera unless it's near direct sunlight. I just captured a pic off of my computer screen for the last image cause I didn't feel like getting out a flashlight to properly light up a wall outlet

    Granted the preview video at the end of the demo shows a lot more content which is probably more exciting than snapping pictures but I'll either wait for a price drop or for it to go up on Club Nintendo for now.

    How's Gradius?

    @VofEscaflowne

    Is Chibi-Robo the kind of game that would show up as a Club Nintendo reward? I wouldn't assume so, but they've put up other "digital only" games before...still, seems "risky" holding out for that.

    @DrFinkelstein

    It's good!

    Maybe not but I wouldn't rule out a price drop.

    Gradius is sweet, but if you're like me, not the biggest shmup gamer out there, it will be hard as nails.

    Knowing that Yumi's Odd Odyssey is coming sometime this month takes some of the disappointment out of not finding the Mega Man GB games here every week for the past six months and counting...

    I get so frustrated when VC games come out in one territory and not another. North Americans had to wait six months for the Wario Land games on 3DS versus Europe, and maybe upwards of a year for Kirby's Dream Land 2? And now we're waiting for A Link to the Past and SMB3 for some reason, when both came out in Europe last month. I understand localization delays, but VC game delays are ridiculous.

    Rant over.

    I'll download the Chibi-Robo demo just to add it to my list. I doubt I'll actually play it, AR games don't interest me at all.
