Why not sign up for a (free) account and create your own content?
hmph no 3DS VC or 3DWare titles... I guess they are going to stagger releases but I was hoping for something esp TG16 title or 2.

That's not the official PR, just what's been confirmed at this point. More will be announced in Nintendo's official PR.

Oh, we have to wait until Thursday now? I wonder what the reason is behind the change? Oh well, whatever.

@ludist210 I just deleted my thread, I hadn't seen yours. By the way, thank you for giving us all these updates every Monday.

I saw some news that SEGA is going to be releasing some games for the 3DS eShop (presumably Virtual Console). They are: Sonic the Hedgehog: Triple Trouble, Sonic Drift 2, Shinobi, Dragon Crystal and Columns. There's no release date yet but I'm pretty stocked. This means I can scratch off 4 out of my Top Ten Games for the Game Gear from the list.

Can you edit into the title that it's Thursdays now? It might help some people who were unaware. Or folks like me who glossed over the date you post. I only now realized the 16th is Thursday.

Just a thought!

That's interesting; I wonder why the change?

Welcome to DSiWare, 3DS peeps!

No problem! Glad to make my little contribution to this site.


Glad to be here! I just need to start Shantae now...

Yay! I feel like I missed out on so much but I already bought Art Style: Pictobits and Shantae. There's a few more titles that interest me, mainly stuff by Q-Games.

Actually, my comment was a sarcastic spin on this week's picks, but I prefer the positive spin that you guys gave it!

Hey, there's gems in there I never touched, so I'm excited! So far, Shantae is pretty good.

EDIT: Is there any reason why DSi games don't get stored on the SD card?

Yeah, there are definitely quite a few gems on the service. You just have to sniff them out, like truffles.

And DSiWare doesn't get stored on the SD card. It's internal, like on the DSi. Some kind of technical thing. I just hope there's more internal space, so we don't have to move stuff around. Do we have any comparison of the internal space on the two devices?

Let's put it this way: I have Shantae on my internal memory, and as far as I can tell, that's it. I have something like 920 blocks free.

Oh. Well, I should try to download all of my DSiWare onto the 3DS at the same time, since it was too much for my DSi fridge. No Pinball Pulse or Flipnote, though...

I have been purchasing my DSiWare on my DSi XL due to the increased screen size and have been loving them, Pinball Pulse, Aura Aura Climber and Photo Dojo have all been awesome so far. I think I am saving myself for Shantae though

Hidden Photo (DSi: 600pts, eShop: $4.99)

Typo? Should it be 500 points or 5.99? Unless if there's a discount for 3DS owners?

Donkey Kong?

Donkey Kong!?

Hm, Donkey Kong? Can I assume that's the 1994 version that came out on Gameboy? If so, that's a terrific game, well worth the download!
