Australian Classification Board has rated Kirby: Powerpaint Brush (Canvus Curse) and Mario Slam Basketball (Mario Hoops: 3-on-3) for VC just over the past week.
Also did some searching on their site out of curiosity and found out that Wild Gunman has also been rated! But this is the weird thing . . . It was all the way back in January and after Google searching about this the only gaming site to report it was The Tanooki whose article leads to a error page, the forums on NintendoLife also mention but not the main site. And yet about 2 months later, lots of sites reported the news of Hogan's Alley and Dig Dug being rated by the ACB.
And speaking of Mii Fighters, I'm also made a Mike Jones sword fighter in Smash, would be interesting to see how it compares to yours Nester.

I need to add the rest of you guys. Have any of you got me on your 3DS friend list yet? I registered nearly everyone here but I don't think anyone registered me.
On the eShop, the Nindies demos from E3 are finally getting their full releases and with discounts if you downloaded the demo. Wii U exclusive Runbow was released earlier this month and Extreme Exorcism (not exclusive) has been released this week.
There's even a promo video with Reggie in it.
There's a Curve Studios sale in PAL regions with I think, 66% off sales if anyone's interested in their games.

Now that the basic lightgun games are here, can we please get Gumshoe and Battleclash?
I've read up about Battleclash, that game sounds so awesome for something with such a "restricted" control scheme due to the Super Scope (as in just using the target reticle to aim at ememies/scroll the screen and the single button with a variable damage shot based off a auto charging meter).

Nintendo Badge Arcade has been out in NA since yesterday and will be out in Europe on the 13th. Use a claw to grab Nintendo badges to decorate your 3DS HOME Menu screen. (Free to play with micro transactions).
SEGA 3DS themes based off their various hardware will also release on the 13th in Europe

Oddly enough, Trauma Team is now available on the eShop in North America. Kinda random, but certainly not unwelcome! The game didn't sell too well when it was originally released (hence why Atlus has never made another Trauma Center), but it's definitely worth checking out. It's also one of the best examples of the Wii's motion control, IMHO.
Really hope, Trauma Team gets a PAL release now thanks to the eShop. Still haven't played any of the Trauma Centre games, and TT was the one I most wanted to play and then found out it never got a PAL release.
Zack & Wiki: Quest for Barbaros Treasure got released last week on the PAL Wii U eShop, it has a 25% launch discount.
Kirby: Power Paintbrush (Canvas Curse) and Kirby: Mass Attack have also been released with a "buy one, get the other half price" temporary deal.
Games from Two Tribes are up to 80% off including the Toki Tori games and Swords & Soldiers.
Pokemon Picross also got released (free to play).
Now for indies games, Fast Racing Neo and Steamworld Heist are being released on December 10
FRN will also include a mode called Hero mode that plays similar to F-Zero where you have a boost/shield meter.
SH will have a launch discount as well as a exclusive 3DS theme for first purchases (that will not be available afterwards).
Hopefully others are interested in buying these games.

Worldwide, Steamworld Heist's 16% launch discount and exclusive launch 3DS theme will be ending today. I purchased it on Christmas, the game's good so far (ricocheting bullets with a laser sight pistol is awesome!) though I thought the 3DS theme could have been better, but it's still nice.
In Europe N64 both 1080 Snowboarding and Wave Race 64 are available and have a buy both get 50% off either title when you buy both on the same Wii U. (This is like the 3rd time they have done the same deal for new VC games).
In NA, Super Mario Galaxy finally appears on the Wii U eShop.

Nester the Lark: I would like to be more active around here, but I don't always have the opportunity.
May 27, 2022 11:31:47 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I also would like to be more active, but I don't really have anything interesting to say. When I'm not playing games, I'm just being listless.
May 27, 2022 12:11:39 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Just now, I thought of making a topic on why am I unusually cold towards Nintendo's own games this generation, but then I realised that the answer is actually very simple: they're remakes, ports or otherwise don't bring anything particularly novel.
May 27, 2022 12:28:06 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I can think of some things to post about. They might not be interesting to anyone but myself, but I think of the forum as more like a community blog at this point.
May 28, 2022 10:24:47 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Is there anything more "anime" than two characters involved in an incredibly fast, intense, elaborate battle with each other while simultaneously having a calm conversation, voices not even raised, and not even short of breath?
Jun 1, 2022 10:05:31 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: This is completely random, but I saw a woman with Animal Crossing's Isabelle's hairstyle this morning. She was also dressed in pastel colours, which reminded me even more of Isabelle.

nocturnal YL: The new State of Play is quite interesting. Stray is unexpected, and SF6 looks better than its disastrous initial logo reveal would suggest.
Jun 3, 2022 0:15:02 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Street Fighter 6 looked like Street Fighter being combined with Final Fight because of the free-roaming segments. I wouldn't mind seeing more stuff like that in fighting games, but then, I've given up on the genre anyway.

Boo Destroyer: ^ We don't get enough of that anymore, if you ask me.
Jun 3, 2022 20:04:43 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Where are my bonus rounds where you total a car with your bare hands?
Jun 4, 2022 8:51:08 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: With Xenoblade Chronicles 3 coming out soon, I was thinking of writing about my favorite cutscenes from XC2.
Jun 6, 2022 10:23:26 GMT -5
Boo Destroyer: I wonder if Rex, Pyra, and Mythra will appear in Xenoblade 3 as bonus DLC?
Jun 6, 2022 20:24:19 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: ^ I can see the "Heroes"/seventh party members being a little like XC2's Blades in terms of collectability (only without the gacha system), so I think the potential is there for having a lot of extra party members.

nocturnal YL: Started the Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes demo, currently at the first episode. I picked the Black Eagles. The beginning felt kind of slow.
Jun 18, 2022 8:33:16 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: OK, I'll have my impressions of the XC3 Direct shortly...
Jun 22, 2022 9:26:13 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I still want to write some things about XC2 before XC3 comes out, but haven't quite been able to yet.
Jun 22, 2022 12:17:05 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I played through the demo of a game that I wouldn't have considered — Aiyoku no Eustia, an old adult game (console version, so no adult contents). One thing that surprised me is that I played it for 6 hours and it's still going. More on that later.
Jun 26, 2022 9:37:08 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: What's with that awful upscaling in that Mega Man Battle Network collection?
Jun 28, 2022 8:58:25 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Started Atelier Ryza 2. I'm about 15% done? First-day impression: Ryza 2 is much improved from Ryza 1, most notably story and battle system. The pacing is better, the goals are clear, and story logs are written from Ryza's perspective.
Jul 2, 2022 12:51:26 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: As far as it being a base for other games go, BLUE REFLECTION: Second Light obviously took cues from it, with both involving revealing memories. Atelier Sophie 2 mostly had changes it can call its own, sharing just the rendering and exploration mechanics.
