List updated to correct Binding of Isaac 3DS

That's a surprising amount of games that actually fit the theme well and are worthwhile purchases with the discounts.

I suppose I should thank NOA for not giving us this sale and thus making it slightly easier for me to not end up letting my backlog grow even more from another sale, I guess.

TOPHATANT123October 17, 2016

I guess I'll get SMT Devil Survivor 2, I still wanna replay the first one but I may as well get 2 now while it's on sale.

Very tempted by Binding of Isaac Rebirth, with 40% discount it's gonna be cheaper than regular price on Steam, though i expect Steam going lower come next seasonal sale. That and Rebirth is going to be two versions behind once AfterBirth+ hits (supposedly -- this year).

But i will be buying NES Castlevania games on 3DS for sure. It's about time i started the series.

Also, Binding of Isaac is a New 3DS exclusive.

Hopefully NOA will have a similar sale either this week or next week.  I've actually been putting off buying the Castlevania games since I figured if I bought them they'd probably be put on sales around Halloween sometime and now it looks like I was right to wait assuming we get the exact same selection.

Of course I wonder if this will also be the moment North America finally get the Fatal Frame 2 remake since Europe is getting it on their eShop.  Since it's a digital game there's nothing holding it back, especially since Fatal Frame 5 was released last year as a eShop exclusive in America as well.

D'oh, dropped that. Thanks, it's fixed now.
