    Wait, what Mario Golf is this?  I didn’t realize the franchise went back to pre-GBA hardware.  What version of Mario Golf is this, and is it good?  Toadstool Tour is a long standing favorite game of mine, so I’m more than interested.

      It’s GBC and it’s fantastic. Did you play the GBA one? It’s an RPG like that one.

      • Ethan_Twain

        Actually, I never played the GBA game either.  Toadstool Tour was where I started.  I love Mario Golf though, and I love RPGs.  Seems like a good deal to me!

          You should give it a shot. The RPG Mario Golf games are hella awesome (so are the Tennis games, but I seem to really suck at those)

    Personally, I’d be interested in the Castlevania Re:birth adventure for the 3DS… or is it already released to that platform and I just completely missed out?

    Gaaah, I want Ninja Gaiden in the European eShop too! Even though I already paid for it on the Wii… but whatever. Here, have some money.

    Can you change the button layout of virtual consoles games now on the 3DS? I’d love to buy Ninja Gaiden, but the default controls are so awkward with the 3DS’ button layout.  Super Mario Bros was virtually unplayable. No pun intended.

  • That’s really great! Hope these come to the european e-shop as well, eventually.

    I will be throwing dollars at the screen en masse when Ninja Gaiden II comes out.

  • Why does Nintendo have the Region Lock treat Wii and 3DS as if different regions when it comes to NES games resulting in Superior and Inferior sized libary of the same games and can’t access each other libary?
