They should just make a Picross e Collection at this point. I keep holding off on buying them since there're so many and a new one always seems right around the corner.

But where is Advance Wars 2? And don't say in Zero's GBA at home!

@TriforceBun

Just bite man! I think there was a sizable gap between 6 and 5 but I wonder now if 7 is far behind.

Tried the Dragon Ball Z demo. I didn't realize it was a straight fighting game and that all the voices were Japanese. Ill stick with Dragon Ball Z Xenoverse.

Interesting week of updates. I still gotta play Golden Sun...

Golden Sun 2?

Hey, that only puts you...*counts*... nine months behind us?

At this rate you guys might actually see Zero Mission and Advance Wars 2 by Christmas.

@Shadowlink Nintendo of America becomes a complete joke when their consoles are on their way out the door. The only reason Wii U and 3DS feel barren is because NoA likes to play the waiting game for no damn reason.

Hmm,, Golden Sun 2; enough time for a EC entry before December? I know we've got Backlaugust now and NewGameBer soon, and Shocktoberfest. Yeah. How long could it take? 6 weeks enough?

--And Citizens of Earch is going to be 5 bucks?! MAN, I really need an external drive! Good thing I have hospital bills OUT THE ASSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS.

@Mr_Mustache do you have any rotten food in the fridge?

@Scrawnton

..I've tried to understand, and I don't get it! What am I missing?!

But no, I don't think I do have rotten food in the-- AH HA. Maybe I can delete something and download it again at a later date. GOT IT. "THE FRIDGE." I never had a problem with that on the Wii because I was using a large SD card. PACKED with crap.

Japanese Rail Sim 3D Journey to Kyoto

That's a good price on Stealth Inc. 2. I might have to give it a go.

@Mr_Mustache external drives slow down the Wii U OS so much. I hate to think how I'm gonna deal with Xenoblade Chronicles X and its big install.

Something called Journey of a Special Average Balloon is ten cents. And yet...

@Jargon

10 whole cents? And the balloon is only average?

Ehhhhh.

@Scrawnton

..For all games, or just the ones on them? *sigh* I don't know what to do. I'm primarily a "disc" player, so I don't even know what to do with games when they're 2000 mb downloadable games. I can't be deleting stuff constantly, that simply won't fly. And if I get Guitar Hero Live..well I'll DEFINITELY need to save songs to the drive in that point (as I did with an SD card on the Wii).

How much is "so much?" Scared.

@Mr_Mustache

I have an external drive and I didn't even notice.

Maybe a few extra seconds. That's a lot to some people though.
