    Retro announcing and showing Metriod would be very nice indeed.

    My only concern with that is that Metroid isn't really a system seller. I was disappointed that they worked on a DK game as their first Wii U title but not surprised given the numbers.

    I'd prefer them to work on something different. Don't know what but something other than Metroid and DK. Their own IP that they can run with however they like.

    I have been criticised for this opinion before but I do not think Retro want to do their own IP. They seem to enjoy taking an existing idea and adding their own flavour to it. Creating a new IP is very difficult and many people are better at evolving and not inventing.

    I'd shit myself at a new Retro 3d Metroid game but it's not happening :-(

    Giana Sisters or wotsit called has finally had off tv sound patched in. Spent an hour with it there and its a decent wee game for the price. Pick it up in the next sale when you see it.

    Anyone else picked up Swords and soldiers? decent RTS for 2.50 and well suited to off-tv play.
  • Deleted user 25 May 2014 16:11:31
    @Pinky_Floyd I remember you pointing that out! Cheers for the heads up. If it is indeed on offer again, i'll give it a go. If this Wii U backlog doesn't continue to grow, that is...

    Really wish they would release these gba games on 3DS . Having them on Wii U is better than nothing but they are portable games after all.

    Donkey kong 3 or helping out with something . They chose to do DK instead of Metroid, I doubt the will nor talent is there but hope I'm wrong.

    Metroid or new IP from Retro would be ace..and possibly too good to be true.

    @FatSternKikwi I'm with you on that. I've got the 10 free ambassador games and they run and look absolutely fine. I don't see why they've held off doing so for so long. I'm much rather have portable Virtual Console games on the 3DS and console based games on the Wii U.

    Scram Kitty is a bit difficult innit? :o

    Fun though! Those red mice are bastards.
  • Deleted user 26 May 2014 03:05:32
    What level are you up to? Some of the later levels can be brutal!
  • Deleted user 26 May 2014 10:21:55
    I'm terrible at Scram Kitty. I just can't quite get a handle on the controls and haven't managed to capture any of the cats that run away from you then disappear after a short while. I find it a little strange that given the advantages of off screen play, you miss out on vital instructions at the start of the game if you don't play on the tv.

    Noticed that Club Nintendo America have some games for points including super metroid for 200 or Mario kart 64 for 250 (https://club.nintendo.com/rewards.do). Can I setup an account and register a couple games to download the games to my standard Nintendo ID UK account?
  • Deleted user 26 May 2014 14:07:24
    &Rens11 I couldn't say for sure, but i've not heard of anybody doing that. If you could, i'm sure there'd have been more commotion about it already.

    Seeing as the US and European release schedules differ, I imagine the codes you'll get from the American Club Nintendo Account will be incompatible with the European eShop.

    Injustice for 15 quid in that sale..... Is it awkward to play with the gamepad?

    @TheMayorOfJugs If you don't mind a physical version of Injustice then you can get it for 7 from the Gamecollection.

    Not sure how it plays mind.

    @Toaster05 Thanks a bunch Toast-man, but I'd have to pay shipping and stuff, and wait for it to arrive, it wouldn't be worth it :)
