E-Shop: What games are you planning on buying on Day 1?
« on: June 02, 2011, 09:11:27 PM »


DSiware
  • Tetris Party Live
  • Photo Dojo
  • Touch Solitaire
  • Shantae Risky's Revenge
  • Might Flip Champs
  • Brain Age Express: Sudoku
  • Art Style: Pictobits
  • Bejeweled Twist
  • Wario Ware Snapped
  • Plants vs. Zombies
  • Mario Calculator

3D Classics



  • Excitebike 3d

Virtual Console: Gameboy
  • Super Mario Land

Special Note:
Sadly Oregon Trail and Flip Note Studio DSi games are not allowed on e-shop so I won't pick those up.
I have no clue what 3DS original download games to pick up as I don't know NA launch info yet. So what's your list?

Great websites for research:

Wario Ware Snapped, Excitebike 3D and Super Mario Land. I wonder if it will be straight up GameBoy emulation of if it will have any typed of enhancements (like Super GameBoy). SML and SML2 are freaking awesome games.

Excitebike but is that really all the DSiWare?
 
I'll probably pick up Shantae as well it reminds me of  Kabuki Quantum Fighter which I enjoyed.

Won't be day one purchases but I won't be getting paid for another week.  :P:


However, I will get Super Mario Land, Excitebike (THIS one might be day one...), Shantae, and maybe Photo Dojo.
This is where I would write something witty or funny if I had any ideas.

In addition to Adolph's list, I highly recommend Dark Void Zero and Art Style: Digidrive. Also, Soul of Darkness, an old-school Castlevania clone that's apparently transferrable despite most of Gameloft's other titles not being so, and Chronos Twin, which is a really tough action platformer that makes interesting use of the dual screen functionality.

EDIT: I just checked, and I have 1300 points left on my DSi. Assuming they won't transfer over, I need to spend them before Monday. Preferably I'd go with an 800 and a 500, but I don't see any 800s that I'm interested in and don't already have. There are a couple 1000s I want, but then I'd be leaving 100 on the table, and that's assuming I find a 200 that I care about. Any suggestions?

I researched how much my list cost: About $57 before Tax. That's fairly expensive so I'm limiting the games to the more reasonable $31


Tetris Party live $5
Photo Dojo $2
Touch Solitaire $2
Shantae $12
Brain Age: $5
Mario Calculator $2
Mario Land $3
Excite Bike 3d $0

I'm assuming Mario Land is $3, and assuming DSiware prices are unchanged. I'm basically getting time waster puzzle games and one 'real game' with is shantae. I might get the other games on my list eventually but I gotta space it out some

Right now I may just pick up Shantae and my free Excitebike.    I wouldn't mind owning and replaying Super Mario Land, but I think I might wait a little bit on it.   Might pick it up when Link's Awakening comes to the store someday.  Get them both at the same time to kinda space out my purchases or such.   That's assuming Link's Awakening doesn't take too long to come to virtual console.

I'm going to get Excitebike and Super Mario Land.  I'll slowly add all the DSi Artstyle games as well.

Oh, Nintendo.  You get me every time.  Maybe this time, you'll be different.  Maybe you've learned from your mistakes...

Excellent list! I'm actually surprised that someone else liked the mario calculator as much as I did (even though I have one on my iPhone).


I traded my DSi towards the purchase of my 3DS (thus only paying $175 for the thing which has been well worth the cost imo) so I don't have any of my games to transfer over.  I'm not upset about it as I finished all the games I wanted and got my money's worth.  I will be repurchasing that mario calculator though  ;D .

It'll just be Super Mario Land and the free Excitebike for me. Most of the good DSi games like Shantae and Mighty Flip Champs I already have on my XL. I'm not transferring them over. Would rather have the larger screen.

My guess is 7pm CST, that way it'll be 9am Japan time.Who knows they might just surprise everyone and have it be ready at the same time as Wiiware / Virtual console tomorrow.


Now Nintendo did state that they will discuss what games release on Thursday on Monday to help generate 'buzz'. So we might get two updates in a week, and potentially know what will get in the near future.

Win.

I called Nintendo and asked if they had announced a time.  Lady looked it up and said all she could find was "the evening of the 6th".

It would be amazingly awesome if they went live during SONY's press conference.

Did they say you wouldn't be able to re-download it? or is it just assumed to be unavailable after tomorrow?

I dunno.  That's all it says on Nintendo's site.

Not that I care too much, but it was a neat thing to show off to people.

Lame.  DSi-3DS system transfer deletes save data from DSiWare. :(

Unfortunately because of finances I had to sell my DSi, deleted all my DSi store purchases when I sold it. So I guess all those games are lost and I'll need to rebuy them. Ugh.
