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.

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: ^ Reminds me that Xanadu Next also had a randomly-generated post-game dungeon. You needed to go into it many times, getting a little further each time, but it was different every time you re-entered. It was very grindy. I never did finish it.

nocturnal YL: DIVA FT Meiteki Cybernetics EXEX perfect. Finally got it.

Spud: Lol, Imagine spamming a sleepy little forum like this.

nocturnal YL: I have a tendency to dislike a game because it's popular, or at least, I give popular games a harsher, more critical look.
Apr 12, 2022 15:07:04 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: ^ I think I do something similar in that I tend to favor less popular things. It's not something I do intentionally or even consciously; I think it's just part of my personality.

nocturnal YL: Official pairings in games sometimes surprise me. Like <spoiler> in BLUE REFLECTION 2. Or Astrid and Makalov in Fire Emblem 10 which is less shocking but still unexpected. For a non-romantic example, Meta Knight and Dedede in KF2 work so well together.

nocturnal YL: BLUE REFLECTION: Second Light is a… shocking experience. I'm at the start of Chapter 9 (so 3 more to go), and considering the side quests and maxing out character Talent Points, I'm about 70% done.
Apr 18, 2022 12:11:29 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I'll say this: I'm glad it's not a popular game. I don't need to worry about spoilers. Is it worth playing? Yes for story, no for other elements. An overall huge yes for me, because I really like the story so far.
Apr 18, 2022 12:15:00 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Almost anything I can say is spoiler, and I really think it's best to jump into it blind, not even reading the official website. I'll probably write a review on it, so stay tuned.
Apr 18, 2022 12:17:07 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I was done with BLUE REFLECTION: Second Light… two days ago, actually. It's quite difficult to put my thoughts in words, but at the same time, it's similar to what others would say about the game.

nocturnal YL: My old computer died, on the same day I got my new one. The timing isn't exactly a coincidence, as it started showing symptoms a long time ago. I got very lucky that I did my backup and bought the new PC today. (Game review about 1/3 done, by the way)
Apr 24, 2022 15:10:51 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Now I'm not sure if I should post the review as is. I basically typed out the whole story, but that's exactly what I don't want potential players to read.
Apr 25, 2022 10:39:45 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Writing too little would make it difficult to appreciate why is the story good, but writing everything out would defeat the point. Umm…
Apr 25, 2022 10:40:25 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: And it's done! I decided to cut most of the story and only leave in a few examples. The cut part is even longer than the full review, but if anyone wants to know the story they should play the actual game or at least watch videos of it.

Nester the Lark: I like that we keep posting cameos, even though Fry has no intention of ever updating the site again. But I guess the forum is still an archive.

Shrikeswind: Looks like it's been a minute since TV Eye's been here, so I'll go post that in the thread as well. It looks like he made it to around the halfway mark, but now it's been 4 years.

Shrikeswind: I was thinking about it because the thumbnail for JRose11's Red/Blue Dugtrio-only run reminded me of Hidden Depths' Dugtrio.
