Gurumin 3D is out on the 3DS eShop today in North America. I've mentioned it in the Falcom thread, but if you like Zelda or just cute action-adventure games, I would encourage you to check it out. It has a very "Dreamcast"-like charm to it (it originally came out in Japan in 2004).

I'd be interested if there's a Japanese version. I don't have an American Nintendo Account to date (although I do have an NA 3DS), nor am I interested to buy anything from Nintendo of America ever again.
nor am I interested to buy anything from Nintendo of America ever again.
Story? Is it their lack care when it comes to translation?
Meanwhile the European eShop will be have Halloween sales on spooky themed games like Zombi U, Fatal Frame 5, etc and VC games like Majora's Mask, Devil World (has to be a first) Castlevania, Ghouls N Ghosts, etc. There's also going to discounts on other games like Gunman Clive (3DS and Wii U versions). Nintendo Life has the full list.
Fatal Frame 2 Wii Edition also gets released this week.
And to round it out the Pokemon Sun & Moon demo will also be released this week.

But the bigger reason here is region locking. On the DS I'd pick the language version depending on the series (NA for Metroid, Japanese for Kirby, etc.), but I don't think it's a wise idea to keep buying multiple units of the same system. My top two favourite series are Fire Emblem and Kirby, both Japanese-styled series, and I also have a tendency to pick Japan-only games, so the choice is obvious. I have both versions of 3DS, but that's an exceptional case (I couldn't buy a Japanese 3DS at the time).

The original Wii game Lost in Shadow is now out on the eShop in North America.
It's like Nintendo is deliberately picking the major hidden gems on the original Wii and putting them on the eShop to give them a second chance. Although the Wii U probably won't increase their exposure much, kudos to Nintendo for taking this approach.
Butterfly: Inchworm Animation II was released in the 3DS in NA last week and should be released in PAL regions shortly. For anyone that liked Flipnote Studio (or didn't get it in time) This looks like a good (and possibly better alternative).
Also it's the final week for the Halloween sale, so get buying if you haven't. I'm probably get Gunman Clive and possibly Gargoyles Quest (and maybe it's sequel). Which of the the Castlevania VC games are worth buying?
Europe will get Butterfly: Inchworm Animation II this week, there is a trailer for it on this page.
NoE is also holding a Zelda sale for My Nintendo members, they can get 30% off the entire Zelda series including Hyrule Warriors DLC. 50% off My Nintendo Zelda Home Menu themes. And will also finally release the My Nintendo Zelda rewards of The Legend of Zelda 30th Anniversary Theme and The Legend of Zelda 25th Anniversary orchestra videos (that have already been available in the US for a while).

TANK TROOPERS RELEASES FOR THE WEST TODAY! The background music for the following trailer sounds pretty cool. Though it's sad to hear it doesn't have online multiplayer. What's even stranger is that Vitel have develop this game and yet their last game the F2P Steel Diver: Sub Wars had online multiplayer. This feels like a game that would have been better off at the start of the 3DS's lifespan than now. But I will say that the character designs and abilities look cool.

Harvest Moon 64 is coming to the VC for both Europe and NA this week! This game was never released in Europe originally and was said to have had issues preventing it from being released on the Wii's VC service, so hearing that it's getting a release now is very unexpected.
forma.8 from the Nindies@Home 2015 series is finally getting released on Friday for Europe.
Vaccine is 90's inspired survival horror title that looks like Resident Evil, but has its own interesting design choices. This is from the same developer that made the platformer FreezeME.

Nester the Lark: I've had similar thoughts the past several months. What do I really use social media for? I don't interact a whole lot, so for me, it's more about getting content. "Less about the social, more about the media" as I like to put it.

nocturnal YL: On second thought, maybe I should give Bluesky a try. I was actually considering Mastodon as a replacement of X and didn't really think much of Bluesky since posts are viewable by members only, but I guess it wouldn't hurt to try.
Sept 7, 2023 14:29:50 GMT -5
Evie ❤✿: I relate with that and Twitter. I started using it and got addicted to scrolling, retweeting things. Nowadays I come back in short waves, or learning about media like you. Unfortunately it's hard to keep track and Musk doesn't like datascraping.
Sept 11, 2023 6:11:48 GMT -5
Evie ❤✿: The other reason I use it is to follow art channels I like, specifically to browse cute art.
Sept 11, 2023 6:12:43 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I have got a Bluesky account. I'll consider actually posting later. And I haven't even used X for at least a month. There are a few X users I'm interested in re-following (in a general sense) if they have accounts elsewhere.

nocturnal YL: The problem with being completely sucked into Surge Concerto's world is that I can't actually look them up outside of the game, since everything, including some official media, is spoiler. It's the same issue as BLUE REFLECTION: Second Light.
Sept 11, 2023 12:37:04 GMT -5
Evie ❤✿: Cool ^^ Sorry to hear that Hope you have fun with the games until you don't have to avoid the spoilers.

Evie ❤✿: I've been fed up with online editors and software which claims to be free but isn't. -_- I've usually joined an image with audio w/Avidemux which actually is open source. Now I just use FFMPEG to do same for less clicking. I'm satisfied this way though. ^^

Evie ❤✿: I think microblogging sounds nice too. I might try it myself one day. ^^ Twitter/X's character limit is restricting, as is the organisation/discovery of tweets. Don't worry about audience, it isn't important tho if u want one I'm sure will get1 eventually.

Evie ❤✿: Funnily enough there is a recent Hatsune Miku/Pokémon collab called Pokémon feat. Hatsune Miku Project Voltage 18 Types 18 Songs where it imagines if Hatsune Miku was a Pokémon Trainer and what Pokémon she'd use.

Nester the Lark: Sony has announced a State of Play for tomorrow after the Direct. Didn't they do this last September, also? EDIT: Yes, they did.
Sept 13, 2023 16:04:08 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Not a bad Direct. I'll post my impressions later.

Nester the Lark: So, I still don't know if NST had anything to do with Mario vs. Donkey Kong on Switch, but plot twist! They *did* develop F-Zero 99.

nocturnal YL: About a quarter done in Ciel nosurge DX (1/3 story, about 1/5 items). Absolutely love the story, but the gameplay is pretty bad. Wouldn't have liked it at all in its original online, real-time-only form.

Nester the Lark: Apparently, Xenoblade Chronicles 3 won the Award of Excellence at TGS.
Sept 21, 2023 11:33:28 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: This is unexpected. His name is almost synonymous with the studio.
Sept 25, 2023 10:46:37 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Surge Concerto (and the overall Ar Tonelico series, from what I know) has deep lore and unfathomable dark stories on top of rather shallow gameplay. It's in some ways a far more extreme version of the BLUE REFLECTION series.
Sept 26, 2023 14:08:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Game design similarities aside, I'm surprised that the same developer behind Atelier can make something like this. Not exactly my cup of tea, but that's an extra layer of appreciation I have for them.
