    Mega Man's gonna take a lot of my money this month, I can tell.

    WL4 is a pretty solid GBA game. Although it's kind of a tough sell against stuff like M&L, Metroid Fusion, and Advance Wars (yes, I'm a convert).

    I played Wario Land 4 on the 3DS for the first time and got stuck in the tutorial.

    Ah, good ol' Mega Man. The second is the worst of the Gameboy bunch, but still enjoyable for what it is. The third is when the series really starts to pick up and carve a name for itself. At least, IMO.

    I've had my eye on that Grinsia game. Looks cool.

    @VofEscaflowne

    Eh, I beat it. It's probably the second best Wario Land game on portables (still have a special spot for the original), but Shake-It! trumps it really.

    What's up with this Grinsia game?

    I really liked Wario Land Shake It on the Wii, but wasn't a fan of Wario Land II on the Game Boy. Would I like Wario Land 4?

    @sirmastersephiroth

    It's a port of an iOS RPG. Looks decent I suppose.

    @canonj

    Wario Land 4 is more like Shake-It! It's one of the Ambassador titles on 3DS if you've got those.

    @ludist210

    I don't have it on the 3DS, unfortunately. I might just have to get WL4 on the Wii U if it's like Shake It.

    It wasn't as good as Shake-It!! to me...not a bad game, though.

    I like Wario Land 4 quite a bit! Probably my favourite among the four original Wario Lands.

    Anyone who has yet to pick up Trine 2, do yourself a favor and get it at the discount price! It's a great game!

    Wario Land Shake It! is one of my favorite Wii games, and I'm also a big fan of Wario Land 4. I think if you like one of those games, you'll enjoy the other.

    Wario Land 4 is fantastic. I played it for the first time on 3DS and loved it.

    WL4 has a few things in common with Shake It, like the life bar, the emphasis on treasure hunting, and the end-of-level escape sequence. I do think Shake It adds a few extra elements that make it more rewarding (like the challenges feature), but WL4 is a pretty good smaller take on that concept if you really enjoyed it.

    I feel like nearly every under-the-radar Mega Man VC release is received with "eh, this one's alright, but it's really this OTHER one that's good". My wallet is ready, people! Just tell me when to buy!

    Shake It always felt pretty different from Wario Land 4 to me. I mean, the concept is similar, but it feels different. I dunno. WL4 is pretty funny (those collectible CDs are fucking crazy!), though a regression from WL3, in my eyes.

    Yup, Wario Land 4 is definitely when Wario became "very odd." Especially in the sound design department. That's part of the reason I loved it when it released on GBA all those years ago.

    As for Mega Man II on Game Boy, I really quite enjoyed it. It's pretty easy though.

    Buy all of the Mega Man games. All of them.

    @ploot
    Is it original? How many of these GB Mega Man games have original content? (Keep in mind, I still have to play past Mega Man TWO on the collection (and I have the X Collection waiting, as well).)

    Man, I would love a straight-up sequel to Wario Land 3. On a home console, especially. And how do we still not have Wario Land VB on the 3DS Virtual Console? Buy M2 out of their Sega remake contract, Nintendo!

    @GameDadGrant
    Must... obey...

    Actually, I do have, like HUNDREDS of dollars just sitting in my Nintendo Wallet, due to an unfortunate incident. Did you guys know that you can't return Points Cards?

    @Anand
    It uses bosses and stage themes from NES Mega Man 2 and Mega Man 3, but it is still its own game.

    GET IT.

    Also, play through the NES collection... NOW.

    How do you accidentally buy point cards?
