Also new this week:

For me personally there are only a few highlights to note here.

  1. Mega Man X2 – I am loving these SNES gems on my new 3DS and can’t wait to dive back into this one.
  2. Paper Mario Color Splash – I got my shipped notification this morning and will be diving into this one over the weekend, one of my most anticipated titles of the year!

    Is it just me, or do digital Nintendo sales kind of suck? I realize I’ve only been paying real attention for about a month now…but still.

      There’s the occasional sale, but it’s not much and usually it’s a game you already own. The best way to save anything on anything Nintendo related is either through BB GCU or taking advantage of Amazon’s 20% off of pre-orders/new releases. :/

    Pretty much, Nintendo is very unlikely to cut a deal with their first party stuff ever.
