    Why not sign up for a (free) account and create your own content?
     
    Demon's Crest coming in two weeks? Well, there's another game to add to my wishlist and ignore until I stop playing Smash during most of my free time. Should be about January or so...

    Also, I think ATLUS can stop announcing their sales, since it's basically a given every week...

    Ah, Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance. I really like that game. I know it's seen as one of the worse games in the series, but I like it.

    Juste Belmont kind of looks like a mix of Alucard from Symphony of the Night and Dante from the PS2 Devil May Cry games. My friends and I always referred to him as "Dantecard."

    There's Hyrule Warriors DLC today too, right? Both a free package and a paid one?

    @TriforceBun

    I'm not sure about the paid one but there should be the free stuff. I really have not kept up to date with the release schedule.

    Definitely getting that chests and booty game. Finally some mature content coming to Wii U.

    Here my 3 year old Review of Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance in case anyone is on the fence.


    I know someone who is going to be very happy with the release of Demon's Crest and Gargoyle's Quest II. I'm not going to name any names @Guillaume. I'm sure you can figure out who he is if you listen to RFN

    Excellent eShop week here. Paper Monsters Recut and Ping 1.5+ are both supposed to be pretty good, and obviously Lone Survivor is fantastic. If nothing else, give that one a shot--though I'm curious what people here think of the other two as well. I might have to check them out (despite not currently technically having a Wii U to play them on)...

    What's the price for SteamWorld Dig on Wii U? Is it more than the 3DS version?

    I really like seeing all of these Castlevania games hit the Virtual Console again, but why hasn't or why won't Konami release Castlevania: Symphony of the Night on a Nintendo console? They put it on Xbox, and Sega Saturn, and even Tiger, but no love for Nintendo. I have heard such wonderful things about this game, and its soundtrack, and would really like the chance to play it. It just seems odd that it hasn't made it to Nintendo yet.
