On the revenge of the 5th, the big mover is the ponies.

It's a big week down at the racetrack as this Saturday's Kentucky Derby crosses over with children's card games in Pocket Card Jockey. The GameFreak title came out of nowhere in the March Nintendo Direct, and the demo should give you a nice taste of what awaits your horse this week. We should have a review of the game soon.

The other movers this week include Map Pack 2 for Fire Emblem Fates if you don't have enough of that to play already, The Beggar's Ride for Wii U, and the Virtual Console releases of the week being Super Punch-Out for New 3DS and Style Savvy for Wii U. We'll take a moment to let that sink in.

Europe gets their Grand National as well with Pocket Card Jockey, and Reptilian Rebllion sounds like a good name for a thrash metal band, but it's a pretty slow week there. Except for the sales, since because of three publishers it's another week where the 3DS eShop's sales pages will go to 11.

I took advantage of Circle's sale last night with 4 games (Fairune, Demon King Box, Dark Witch and Witch and Hero), plus doing the Humble Bundle.

I think I'll be good on games for awhile (not to mention the 100+ other backlogged games, lol..lol...ugh. Someone cure me from Lindemann syndrome!)

Dang, Iwould've paid as much as $20 for Pocket Jockey. For me that price is a steal!
