    I love Castlevania: Circle of the Moon! Here my 3 year old review of the game in case anyone is on the fence. I had to edit the video cause the one I put was no longer available.

    Oooh. Bayonetta 2 demo, eh? I'll check it out.

    Sooo...unless I'm mistaken, the only new releases this week on 3DS are:

    Riding Star 3D

    and

    Ninja Battle Heroes

    Both of which are 3DS eShop-only titles.

    I'd rather have physical GBA cartridges. I wonder if these releases will make them cheaper.

    Sale on Guacamelee? Art Of Balance?! Castlevania?! I can't afford all!!

    I probably have to go with AoB here...

    Definitely getting Art of Balance, as I have been wholly impressed with the Wii/3DS installments.

    As much as I liked Art of Balance, it looks to be basically the same game I played a little over a year ago, so I'm passing. I got Circle of the Moon and the Bayonetta 2 demo. That's all for me this week, even if Guacamelee is tempting...

    Bayonetta demo downloading now. Still need to pick up Dracula X from last week...but Smash is all I'm playing for the foreseeable future, so I'll hold off.

    @Mop it up I've got the Castlevania Dual Pack cartridge (Harmony of Dissonance and Aria of Sorrow) if you wanna swap some games!

    Guacamelee is really good. Less than 10 bucks is a nice price for those who haven't gotten it yet.

    Is Harmony of Dissonance any good? I just remember the music being a major turnoff.

    @PogueSquadron The music is definitely a big step down from the other games in the series. In general, I think Harmony is the weakest Metroidvania. It's still a very solid game, but if you have to skip one Castlevania game, that's the one I'd pick.

    How long is the demo?

    @carlosrox

    I'd say 20 minutes/half-an-hour give or take.

    Here's my review of Harmony of Dissonance in case you want to know more about the game.

    It's actually a pretty good game but, like @nate38 said, it's the weakest of the bunch.

    @nate38 Are you talking about this game?

    I don't think I would have anything you would want, though. Mostly what I have to offer would be one of the doubles I haven't sold off yet (or maybe more than one, depending on what they're worth to you), but I don't think most of it is anything particularly interesting. I guess I'll list it anyway, just in case...

    Cursed Mountain (Wii, new/sealed)
    Samba de Amigo (Wii, complete)
    Again (DS, new/sealed)
    Star Ocean: Till the End of Time (PS2, discs only)
    Castlevania (N64)
    Perfect Dark (N64)
    Ready 2 Rumble Boxing (N64)
    Tetrisphere (N64)
    Battlezone: Rise of the Black Dogs (N64, housed in Madden 64 cartridge)
    Knockout Kings 2000 (N64, new/sealed)
    Razor Freestyle Scooter (N64, new/sealed)
    WCW Backstage Assault (N64, new/sealed, but seal is ripped a bit)
    WCW Mayhen (N64, new/sealed)
    WWF Attitude (N64, new/sealed)
    WWF Wrestlemania 2000 (N64, new/sealed)
    Oddword: Abe's Oddysee (PS1, complete)
    RPG Maker (PS1, complete)
    Vagrant Story (PS1, complete)
    Super Mario Bros. (NES)
    Tecmo Bowl (NES)

    @Mop it up

    Wow, leave Backstage Assault, Attitude, and Mayhem sealed. You stand to gain WAY more in possible eBay funds than you could ever -- through a lifetime of playing -- gain in enjoyment.
