    I was beginning to wonder if Nintendo would ever put the Nintendogs games on the eShop!

    Now they just need to re-ad Nintendo Land to the Wii U eShop. And where's America's Donkey Kong Country and Land games? I WANT IT ALL! AND I WANT IT NOW!!!

    Yes. YES. GIVE ME ALL THE DONKEY I CAN HANDLE.

    wait, is that right? ...yes. yes it is.

    Also, what? Nintendo Land was on the eShop at one point? I thought Nintendo "forced" that one to be retail only?

    I got it digital, so I know at one point it was there near launch.

    For anyone interested, The Swapper is a really great game. Got it on Steam and it's a lot of fun. It's a puzzle game, looks sort of like Metroid, but it's got a real interesting twist on everything that comes together at the end (or doesn't depending on how you see it).

    Lufia is releasing this month for the Game Boy Virtual Console. BUY IT ALL SO WE CAN GET LUFIA II!

    Pier Solar... I hear so many good things. Worth the buy? Anyone know?

    And how is Pokémon Puzzle Challenge?

    Wow this is a great week!

    The Swapper I already have on Steam but haven't even started there... will probably end up buying on Wii U.

    Sportsball is supposedly a pretty awesome multiplayer game too. May have to pick it up for our next party.

    Pier Solar has promise although I hear it didn't turn out as good as it could have.

    @VofEscaflowne Is that Lufia any good? I had the GBA game and it kind of sucked.

    Ooh, Pokemon Puzzle Challenge. I never knew this game existed but I'm in the need for a new puzzle game for 3ds.

    It's Panel de Pon (Tetris Attack) for GBC. I really enjoyed its big sibling, Pokemon Puzzle League on the N64. I might get this simply to have it on the go.

    I'm getting Pier Solar. Although, I might wait a month or two to see if it goes on sale.

    I'm intrigued by Swapper. I'll be looking a the reviews.

    Any point in getting Super Mario Advance if I already have a couple different versions of Super Mario Bros. 2?

    @chrisguy
    It's a little different, throwing large enemies at you and such, and there is a lot of annoying voice chatter.

    It's certainly a YMMV type of game.

    This version is easier. Like, a lot easier. Which is a good thing IMO.

    @chrisguy, @ploot

    Yeah, it's kind of different for being different's sake.

    I'd keep the volume on low (or off) while you play, but otherwise it's a fun spin-off of Super Mario Bros. 2. Whether or not that would be worth your $8 is up to you. Sorry if that's not much help, but as mentioned above, it really is a YMMV type of game.

    SMA was the game that gave Toad his modern (IMO, horrible) voice. Scratch city!

    Man the eShop has been pretty great so far IMHO.

    I can't even get or play all the games I want. I've been eying Pier Solar for a long time now. Played a bit of it on bro's PS4 and it was pretty enjoyable!

    Swapper I got on PC but didn't get very far into. Also enjoyed what I played of that. I suppose there's no need for me to get it when I already have it on PC... :(

    I wouldn't go so far as to say it's horrible (it's kinds worn on me), but I did prefer his MK64 voice.

    And technically the cartoon was the first to show Toad's voice IIRC, and it was scratchy.

    So I'm guessing Nintendo envisioned that from early on.

    He hasn't had the same voice since Mario Kart 64?

    Unfortunately not.

    I like both though.

    Finally got Shovel Knight! Happy day!

    Then I made the mistake of trying the 3DS demo for Sonic Boom, which almost turned the day back to normal again. Holy crap that game seems slow and clunky, and that first level just drags on and on. Gonna have to wash that down with some more Shovel Knight or Stealth Inc 2.
