I was thinking of getting Retro City Rampage: DX, maybe now is the time.

Oh... Race the Sun released! A buddy of mine made that (well, his team did.) It's pretty fun, kind of like if Star Fox was a racing game and also a runner game.

I'm kinda curious about Pocky & Rocky with Becky, but I kinda wish we got the original or its sequel on the SNES. Anyone played the GBA one?

Probably wait for a sale to pick up 3D Sonic 2.

Got my eye on 3D Sonic 2. Can't wait for Legend of Legacy - I'm getting the physical retail version though. I like all the cool extras they threw in there.

Bout to play my broken record:

"So I guess Metroid Zero Mission is just never going to come out in NA."

I'm been itching to play The Legend of Legacy after playing the demo. I put about 5 hours into it and I really enjoyed what it had to offer. Filmia practically sold me on the game through his dialogue alone. Anyway, I'm waiting for the physical release, too.

Anyone know anything about that KEYTARI thing? I never heard of it before, but it sounds interesting...

Oh yeah, I've still gotta grab that Legend of Legacy demo.

I heartily recommend trying out Whispering Willows. Very interesting and moody sorta horror-ish game.

Who is gonna grab Chibi-Robo: Zip Lash? I'm getting the physical copy so I get the amiibo with it. Any other takers?

My copy comes tomorrow.

Nice! Y'know...Gui threatened to end the "Radio Free Nintendo" podcast if that game doesn't sell enough copies. We can at least say we did our part to prevent that from happening...!

The demo I played a few months ago was fun, so I'll buy it eventually. The controls felt great and trying to find real world snacks and other in-game collectibles added some substantial enjoyment to the levels I explored.

Would it kill them to release Zero Mission on VC? I mean, would Reggie break out in hives or something?

@Mop it up
If you're just looking for a music sequencer, I'd pick up Rytmik Rock. It's a crazy value.

Mine arrived in the mail. $15 back from Dell was too good to pass up. (Actually, if I seen the deal in time, I could've gotten $35 back... ON A $30 game. But they fixed the error. I DID get $35 off of Triforce Heroes, though. Score!)

What is this? You're ordering Nintendo games...through Dell?

The computer company?
