Why not sign up for a (free) account and create your own content?
 
Metal Slug 3. Oh, I've waited so long for you.


The Order Up!! page on Nintendo's site says it's $9.99, but that can't be right.

How is Rayman 10 bucks?

...

I hear 99 Seconds is good (by the makers of 99 Bullets)

...

Never played a Metal Slug before.

Edit: I think Rayman is $4.99, and your current source is Nintendolife, ludist.

Yeah, Nintendo's site says $4.99. I was worried there for a minute, I could see Ubi trying to pull that shit...

To be fair, the same page also has a screenshot of Balloon Kid, so I'm not sure how trustworthy it is...

EDIT: Is Order Up!! an eShop game? Because it also says "FREE DEMO AVAILABLE". So the price might be the price of the full version.

I edited in all the games that weren't Rayman, and my source is an e-mail. But there are the individual game pages:

Rayman
Order Up!!
99Seconds
Kakuro by Nikoli
Metal Slug 3

I've never done this before, gimme a break!

We're going to need to fix that!

I swear Nintendo's site said $10 five minutes ago.

Fuck Nintendo's press releases are a mess. Can someone confirm that Order Up!! is the full game, AND that there is a demo for it?

Looks fun.

Hm, Metal Slug 3 is pretty cool but I already have the Anthology Wii disc.

99 Seconds definitely looks appealing:



And I haven't played the original Rayman, so that could be cool...

Metal Slug 3 is GREAT. But I've already got the Anthology disc as well, so I'm set.

At least we're getting VC stuff again!

Metal Slug 3 is sooooooo good.

Oh! I see. It's the Gameboy Color version of Rayman.

I guess since I already have the DSiWare version, I'm not going to need the GBC version. Still, kinda cool they put that up there.

@GameDadGrant

There's a DSiWare version? Is it the same as the original? If so, I might get that instead...

@Guillaume

Thanks for covering for me. Laura had a doctor's appointment and wanted me to go with her...trying to post all that on my phone wasn't going to happen.

99 Seconds looks awesome, but way too hard for me. It reminds me of BIT. TRIP VOID's challenge levels in COMPLETE.

@GameDadGrant
GBC?? What the hell?! I still want to play the first Rayman again.

@GameDadGrant The Game Boy Color game is basically a different game altogether; you should still look into it. Rayman on the Game Boy Color is awesome

Oh, it's a different game? I thought it was just a downport. Now I'm interested.

I think the GBA had an original 2D Rayman, too. Hoodlum Havoc, maybe?

 on: 06/01/12, 04:52:09
Yeah, I believe so. I think the Raving Rabbids game on GBA was also a platformer, wasn't it?

2D Puzzle... game, maybe? Like the Incredible Machine? I don't remember, exactly. There's a 3DS Rabbids platformer, I think.

There's a 3DS port of Rayman 2, but I don't know if there's a Rabbids platformer for it.

@X-pert74
Yeah, there's a GBA Rabbids platformer. It's not very good.
