    Gunman Clive is great, I'm playing through as Ms Johnson at the moment, Loving her 'float' ability being a homage to SMB2, and the way she runs. What a lady! :-)

    Crimson Shroud is just awesome. I can see how its possible to fly through it in 5 hours- there is no leveling up, and better gear only gives incremental increases- but I've spent over 8 hours on it already and I'm only towards the end of chapter 4. Best £8 I've spent on the 3DS so far.

    Edit- finished up my first playthrough, looks like I wasn't far from the end at all. Ending was... interesting. Diving straight into NG+.

    Nice to play a game with a small, self-contained story, it hints at a much wider world, but actually tells a really good, focused tale in a very short space of time.

    Playing through SMB2: The Lost Levels at the minute. Think i've played way too much Mario this year, but it just has to be done.

    Go to the My Account page on Club Nintendo, and on the bit where it shows you your Stars balance just click on the arrow on the right, for the link to the free download page.

    I got my code last night, perfect timing - downloading Professor Layton right now.

    Ah. I can't see it. Unless you mean the white arrow that takes me to my stars balance page, but I see no mention of anything in there.

    I've just sent them an email. Hopefully they'll forward me to the right link or something. :/

    @redcrayon Have been hovering over buying Crimson Shroud for a few days now and very tempted. How is it for playing in short bursts?

    @Kay D'oh. Just realised the arrow doesn't show up at all in the Wii U browser. Very strange, but i've found it now. Cheers for the help.

    It has already been said, but feeling a bit flush I decided to spend some cash in the eShop. I bought Crimson Shroud and Aero-Porter. I like them both but Crimson Shroud really is a class game. I baulked at paying £7.19 for a downloadable game but I can tell you all that I don't regret it. An excellent RPG with some lovely music too.

    Aero-Porter is worth a look too if you want a slightly mentalist puzzler!

    Well, the more difficult fights can take upwards of 20 minutes each (it's set up so that even an encounter with basic enemies usually has reinforcements turning up, and provides a reasonable challenge) but you can leave it in sleep mode easily enough. I went through it at a ratio of one battle per commute, and quite enjoyed it. Excellent stuff, New Game+ is well worth it too. I've had 12+ hours out of 2 playthroughs now.

    I did two battles per commute, but that's Brighton to London! :)

    Warning! If you suffer from red/green colourblindness, you may wish to think against buying Tokyo Crash Mobs. Its pretty tough on the eyes... Might want to wait for the demo to come out first

    I grabbed Tokyo Crash Mobs earlier. It's basically Zuma on acid.

    First impressions are that you can probably skip this one, but it does make me really want a 3DS Warioware.

    Nononononono! Don't say that! Mitchell, the people who made this, made PuzzLoop, which is basically the same idea in a different graphical package, way back before Zuma was a thing and then the game was stolen outright by PopCap (amazing that I used to like Bookworm) and for some reason Mitchell had trouble filing a lawsuit against them. Now the studio has closed and we'll have no more puzzley goodness from them. :( It makes me want to howl at the moon like a wolf!

    I had Puzzloop on my DS! And you're right, it was far superior to Zuma. But I have a feeling that even Puzzloop was itself a copy of a flash game.

    Still haven't beaten the first one. I have a save state on the final stage though, so i've got time!

    Is the 2nd game as hard as the first?

    I found it a bit easier. Just a little though. I think if you do it in the "right" order the bosses are easier, but a couple of the levels are right bastards!

    I'd kick the living daylights out of the producers of Tipping Point - Ghandi

    MM2 has a certain path through it that makes it very easy, but it's not just the paper/scissors boss weapon vulnerabilities, there are certain sections and mechanics that will seem outdated now. There is a Wily boss that needs a certain item to defeat it, but you don't have enough weapon energy to complete the battle in one life, you have to recharge and go in again afterwards. If you turn up with that weapon empty, you'll have a tough time figuring out what to do! Keep everything topped up is my advice.

    Also, Heatman's disappearing platform section- really tough (and every mistake is fatal, and really long) without the air sled, really easy with it. It's disappointingly binary in that respect- it makes it soo much easier that most people never bother learning the pattern and just skip it with the sled.

    All in all, it's a far easier game than MM1- Megaman's arm cannon does more damage to bosses for example, it's because the default 'normal' setting on the pal release is the 'easy' setting in Japan.

    Still, it's got good music and is just a better all-round game than the first one. It's one of the best NES games IMO, so if you have never played it you are in for a treat. It's up there with MMX (SNES) and MMV (gb) as my favourites of the series. There are only a handful of NES games I still enjoy playing and this is one of them.

    Shinen are apparently planning to release Jett Rocket 2 fairly soon

    http://nintendoeverything.com/112195/jett-rocket-ii-the-wrath-of-taikai-new-details-first-look-at-the-games-logo/

    Jett Rocket II will offer both 2D and 3D gameplay. It focuses on “jump’n'run action”, and players will need to use a variety of gadgets to progress through levels.

    Shin’en is once again showing off its technical prowess, this time on the 3DS. Jett Rocket II will support full 3D while maintaining 60 frames-per-second.

    Fortunately, Jett Rocket II isn’t too far off. Shin’en has already finished work on all of the levels and is currently in the beta testing phase. Once the developer finishes bug-checking and polishes the game to its fullest, it should be ready for prime time.

    Shin’en is aiming for a Q1 release for Jett Rocket II on the 3DS eShop. Look out for the first screenshots later this month.

    MM2 is relatively easy for a NES MM game alright. Ever play MM4? JESUS CHRIST it was hard. I lost a near the end password in a house move when I was about 12(I was somewhere past the first round of Dr "Bright"(hmm apparently it's Cossack) boss stuff and had moved into the real Dr. Wily boss stages). Near inconsolable, Frog Man would never be bested again.

    For anybody else still interested in the VC, Castlevania is coming to the eShop on thursday. I'm genuinely excited as i'll be able to play it at 60hz, rather than the 50hz the Wii offers. The music and atmosphere are brilliant.

    I love this game.

    That is all.

    Zelda's just 19.99 on the E-shop now. Till the 21st.

    I already downloaded it and, having completed it on the N64, it's great the second time around.

    Really good to see Nintendo offering some discounts, the cheapest I could see this for new is £31 on Amazon.

    I'm avoiding rebuying games I played on old consoles but if they do this with Lylat Wars and Donkey Kong Country I'm probably going to spend a lot of cash. It's great to have games ready to play on the machine - often I just take the machine and don't have to worry about where I've left all the cartridges.

    I know some people like the physical object, but for lazy disorganised people the chance to get cheap games and have them at your fingertips is amazing.

    I picked up Castlevania and really enjoyed it, having never played it back on the NES- I was always more of a Megaman player. So far I love the music and the boss fights are pretty cool.

    It's not that I find Castlevania very difficult, it's that there are a couple of annoying jumps with enemies placed to knock you into pits- I'll happily admit to using the built-in save state there to only have to do those bits once! It's really quite a short game made much longer though the amount of repetition required after the loss of each life- trying to get to Dracula with a reasonable amount of health after that bloody clock tower section isn't something I feel like doing over and over again.
