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.

nocturnal YL: This kind of reminds me of modern 3D printing, where the software needs to formulate the steps for replicating the object rather than just going in a simple 2D matrix manner as in inkjet printing. Nice video.

Evie the Mother Hen ❤✿: From the looks of it we could create a Pokémon Family ROM hack, FE Family, etc.; but if the number of stiching points was changed from the original design you'd need to fix that with more hacking.

Nester the Lark: I'm working on something for the forum. Hopefully I'll have it finished this week.

nocturnal YL: I settled on the games I'll showcase for my NinDB Top 25. I've tried a lot of games, but a list of favourites is going to be imbalanced regardless. There are absolutely no NES, N64, DS and original Game Boy games in my list.
Apr 26, 2021 14:41:07 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Given that I just said what my favourite games are not long ago, my list will be unsurprising. Now, should I attempt to rank them? What aspects should I highlight to make them more interesting? Hmm…

Nester the Lark: Remember the "Everybody Votes" channel on the original Wii? There was a section where you could submit your own suggestion for a poll. I seem to recall two of my suggestions being used, but I only remember what one of them was.
Apr 30, 2021 9:43:07 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Here's an archive of results from the Everybody Votes channel. I found my poll question in the US English section for September 1, 2009.

nocturnal YL: Do you consider yourself to be more of a ... Romantic: 39.1% Realist: 60.9% This one, right? So… what's your own vote to that question? (I'd have picked realist.)
May 6, 2021 9:58:40 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: ^ At the time, I think I picked romantic. Not sure what I'd pick today. I feel like I'm somewhere in between.

Nester the Lark: Lately, the forum feels more like "Nester & YL's clubhouse."

nocturnal YL: Looking at the other members' last online date, I can safely say that this place is pretty much inactive by now.

Nester the Lark: Looking at an old post I wrote two years ago, I noticed I misspelled "threw" as "through," and now I'm angry at myself.

nocturnal YL: …Why am I still seeking gaming news when I have 7 games yet to complete and at least 2 more that I plan to get? (EDIT — Oh right, Ys IX has a confirmed release date. That makes at least 3 games I'll get later.)
Jun 14, 2021 10:18:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: My current plan is to play Atelier Firis DX now, which online guides suggest is long. Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX will likewise be long (longer than the original too, due to DLC, DX additions and I'll make the best items). I'll maybe play Ys Origin after.
Jun 14, 2021 10:28:43 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Not sure about what I'll play after. Another Atelier game will probably be out by then, either completing the Secret series or giving us Arland 5. Either way, I'll probably play those before going elsewhere. Dusk will have to wait for quite a bit…
