    Why not sign up for a (free) account and create your own content?
     
    Yikes, $12 for Fractured Soul kinda puts it outside of the realm of impulse buy. It does look good, though.

    I've never played a Goemon game before. Well, to my knowledge. Maybe I've played one of those Goemon games that weren't localized as Goemon games?

    Have you seen how much Harmo Knight is going for in Japan, using the usual eshop conversion rates its looking about $20 for you guys. I haven't even looked at it for Europe yet.

    Is that the Game Boy Goemon game? I have the cart and it's not very good.

    Fractured Soul and Mystical Ninja for me!

    Is the Game Boy Goemon unique?

    Why the hell doesn't Konami put Kid Dracula on the service? Or the Castlevania games?

    Speaking of which, where's Bloodlines? Is it some kind of licensing or tech issue?

    Edit: My post sounded pretty nerd ragey. Sorry! I thought I just read that the GB Goemon was pretty terrible, so it frustrates me when I know they're sitting on mountains of really good games.

    @Anand

    Didn't Castlevania: The Adventure come out? I know it did in Europe at least.

    @PogueSquadron

    Some people were looking forward to this game, believe it or not. It's not all about what you want.

    Apparently the SNES Goemon is way, way better and that the GB Goemon isn't very good.

    Why on Earth would they release this instead of a GBC game or a better GB game? Really? I guess they just want to give crappier games the spotlight so that they can get some small amount of sales? Who cares, really? Aggggh. Friggin eShop.
    Perfect example of why nobody is apparently EVER satisfied with the VC. I know they release games at a horrid pace sometimes, but even when there is a release, people usually shrug it off unless it's the game they remember so fondly from their childhood. I don't think Nintendo can ever change this perception of the VC, there just aren't a lot of people out there willing to take a chance on older games to discover something they missed.

    So from Nintendo's perspective, yeah, they are financially better off releasing Super Mario Bros. (NES) on the 3DS VC than an obscure 3rd party GB game or even a lesser-known first party game. I'm actually surprised we even got Mole Mania.

    I think a Game Boy entry in a fairly popular series is a reasonable eShop update, even if I wasn't really crazy about the SNES Mystical Ninja.

    Oddly, the next Game Boy game I'm looking forward to is Kirby's Dream Land 2, in the Kirby Collection.

    Sorry to sound so nerd ragey. I thought I just read that this game was pretty terrible, and I want this service to do well, so I get frustrated when I see something like that or Tennis or Urban Champion pop up on there when I know there could be something way better in its place.

    I know Nintendo can't release a good game every week if their goal is to release the entirety of the GB library, but I dunno, I just got grumpy when I read some bad things about this game, because I want there to be really good games on the eShop.

    Edit: Man. Not sure why I'm so snippy today. I need work. Blegh.

    As far as I know... no.
