Why not sign up for a (free) account and create your own content?
 
In for Metroid Prime: Federation Force. Screw attack it. If it's fun, great. If it sucks, well....I might "hate-play" it.

Got some pretty good sales this week, too. Kind of always wanted to try Soul Hackers.

Does anyone do those "Activities" Nintendo promotes?

@Mr_Mustache

I didn't dig them. But hey - you might! The price of entry is pretty low. Maybe check 'em out. Perhaps your opinion will be different than mine...!

Poncho looks super fun, but I wonder if the jumping sound can be disabled? As it's super loud and annoying in the videos I've seen of the game.
