Aw, sounds like Freedom Planet has been delayed again. Apparently there's a bunch system-freezing bug they found just before release, and they're having trouble ironing those out. Hopefully it gets settled sooner than later, that's a great game.

3D Gunstar Heroes sounds good, but I'm not really in the mood to play that again quite yet, so I'll sit on it for a while.

I'll also have to check out what's included in the Capcom sale later.

3D Gunstar Heroes! HHHHHNNNNNNGGGGGG.......!

Also, good deals for Monster Hunter 4 ULTIMATE and Senran Kagura Burst.

Finally, cool to see Advance Wars 2 on the VC. It'd be nice to see Metroid: Zero Mission, but hey. Hard to complain about Black Hole Rising. Great game is great.

P.S. Anyone gonna bite on LBX? I'm looking for impressions!

Advance Wars 2 is still my fave in the series, before it got a little too crazy with CO powers and abilities. Anyone who liked the first game should consider grabbing it.

Gunstar Heroes 3D? Wow......I think I might have to. Never played it before.

Wrong game. Try Metroid Zero Mission.

How about why aren't there GBA games on the 3DS eShop yet?

The Bridge also looks interesting.

@GameDadGrant

I tried it. Bad music with boring rhythm gameplay. Dud. Like I figured.

Despite the fact that the original is the one I have the most fond memories of and Dual Strike is the one I consider the best, I fully support this...

@chrisbg99

Thanks for trying the demo!

You're better than most, Chris. I'm betting none of these other jerks will even bother checking it out...!

@GameDadGrant

I've got a couple of friends who are super obsessed with Vocaloids. While this is the first time I've bothered to play even a bit of a game, I've pretty much hated the music since before Vocaloids were as popular here.

@GameDadGrant

I love the game. My son has imported several of these Hatsune rhythm games from Japan for his PS4/Vita. He is a master, whereas I pretty much suck. I can complete the songs on normal, I'm great at the easy mode, hard mode, forget it.

I love the visuals and the music!

@WrathOfSamus777

I thought Gunstar Heroes (when it dropped on the Wii VC) was HIGHLY overrated. Buyer beware!

Advance Wars 2 - nice! I`ll get it, but only after I finish Golden Sun and I also wanted to grab Harvest Moon FoMT as my next GBA game.
