Why not sign up for a (free) account and create your own content?
 
Ahhhh Xeodrifter on sale! I guess I could see if my half broken 3DS works enough to start up a download.

You still haven't gotten that thing fixed?

Modestly curious about Xeodrifter, but only if the price point is right. $5 would be my sweet spot.

@ludist210 Nah when I contacted Nintendo they said $80 to look at it with no guarantees of it being fixed or them not erasing my data. So I decided to just wait until New 3DS came out. And then I decided to just wait until it is on sale or something. Koovaps did generously lend me one of his many 3DS so I have been playing a bit on there, but I wouldn't buy games on his 3DS.

Mine still sort of works though, if you don't move. I can probably at least buy Xeodrifter on sale now and then play it when I get a New 3DS and transfer to it.

Definitely getting Xeodrifter.

Neal from Nintendo World Report has been praising Elliot's Quest this past week, too, so I might check that out as well. I'm glad that Klonoa 2 is coming out, but I haven't finished the first yet.

Xeodrifter is great. I felt I got my money's worth, but I don't mind short games. On sale, it's definitely worth picking up.

How much is Xeodrifter?

Xeodrifter is worth playing, nothing mind-blowing but it's a fun little bite-sized Metroid.

I'll grab Xeo, I guess.

Has anyone here played the Fossil Fighter games? I've always wanted to grab one.

Elliot Quest looks really awesome

@Anand
Fossil Fighters Champions on the DS was pretty good, it just got a little repetitive, I quit like halfway through, I think TV & Lust likes those games though, or is it Grant?

But I can't lie the new game looks pretty dope with the vehicles and whatnot. I'd be tempted if I was in the market of something new to play.

Now that the MOON Chronicles episodes are on sale, I'll grab those so I can finish the (full) game. Something I've not yet done, despite owning the original on DS since launch.

@Anand

I've only played the demos of Fossil Fighters, and they were...okay.

@deathly_hallows

I'm not sure if TV&Lust digs Fossil Fighters, but I know he was big into Spectrobes last gen.

@GameDadGrant
Oh yeah, Craig loves Spectrobes, that's what I was thinking of, for some reason I always get those two franchise confused...

Yeah, me too. With these and DragonQuest Monsters, it's kind of hard to keep all these "monsters battle RPG" stuff straight. Good thing they don't make Monster Rancher titles anymore. (wait, do they?)

Looks like none of my friends want to pick up mario Party 10. Might be the first MP I won't get to play...

@Zero

You're not getting Turtle Tale? I don't know if I can believe anything you ever say again.

@anon_mastermind

I'm buying it tomorrow. Is it online?

@VofEscaflowne

GOD, it's like Kid Icarus / Link's Adventure / Simon's Quest all wrapped into one. CAN'T DO IT.

This is another good Klonoa game for GBA if you enjoyed the first one.

There are a couple of free songs for Theatrhythm: Final Fantasy - Curtain Call available now for those that are interested. Even better, the song 'Corridors of Time' from the best RPG of all time - Chrono Trigger - is also available for download for $0.99 now.
