    Why not sign up for a (free) account and create your own content?
    I'm not even going to download that Rayman demo. I'm just hoping my kids forget about it, because I'm not buying it until it is used/bargain bin.

    The game has been pushed forward to August and as for the time between then and its original release date, they are adding more content, contrary to what most people believed at the time.

    I wonder when the Wii U update will be hitting.

    Disappointing list of VC games to start out with...I guess I'll grab Super Mario World eventually. What are the prices for NES and SNES games on the eShop?

    I'll get the Rayman challenge mode thing, should be fun.

    Downloading now. It's a bit over 800mb in size but I'll post some impressions later I guess.

    If that was supposed to be me, then you're pretty much spot-on. I would have gladly accepted any changes in downloadable content and would have paid full price for it if it had released on time. Long memories are a bitch.

    Well played this a bit and it's pretty fun! One mode is practically an endless run mode where you accompany via touch screen but isn't randomly generated. It gets progressively harder than the further you go, the better rank you get. I wonder if it works like SSX where depending on how well people competing perform will determine what qualifies as bronze/silver/gold/platinum (?) cups. It's very hard anyway! The other mode is similar in design but has you collecting 150 Lums as fast as you can. On top of that, there's a few other challenges I haven't been able to unlock yet. Having these challenges change on a daily/weekly basis works well for this being a downloadable app.

    Downloaded Mega Man 4 today. That's my favorite NES Mega Man game, very happy to have it on my portable!

    I'm having fun with the Rayman App. Finished all the demo levels 100% again and am beginning to learn how to play the individual challenges now. Some of these times just seem impossible.
