Apologies for the lack of some information earlier. NoA was apparently scrambling to put together such an awesome statement yesterday that they didn't properly code their presser for today's download. The only thing lacking is Final Fantasy III's price, but I'm assuming it's 800 points.
I can't recommend FFIII enough. It's, in my opinion, the pinnacle of the series. Everyone will argue that it was VII, but to those that played RPGs before they were cool, it's III (America's III, Japan's VI) and II (to a lesser extent).
It took so long for FF3 to be released but now it's here and YEAH BOYYYY.
Except I've been waiting to play this with Sarah (it's her favorite game) and now she's leaving for a month on this exact day. Guess I gotta wait even longer!
Kirby's Dream Land isn't a bad platformer. I remember thinking it was pretty awesome when my brother got it way back in the early '90's. The cast is cute and the inhale/spit gameplay makes for a different beast than the later Kirby games (which focus much more on using abilities). That said, it is pretty short and simple, so it might be best to wait for the sequel.
@ploot I can see where you're coming from. The modern Kirby formula certainly isn't very 'tight', considering all of the powers that you can get. Meta Knight Mode in Nightmare in Dreamland was actually pretty challenging.
