Anything other than Pullblox/Pushmo worth buying?

#1 Posted by Hizang (8532 posts) -

I've recently got back into my 3DS, I've been out of the eShop scene for a while now. I picked up Pullblox because so many people recommended it, but are there any other games on the eShop worth buying?

Mighty Switch Force which just got an update with a few new levels. Colors! 3D if you like drawing. Shantae is a DSi game but it's really good. Also a bit more expensive than most other eshop games. Other than that you should just browse through the VC games I think.

Also I hear there's a new Cave Story version coming out for the eshop.

Cannot recommend Mighty Switch Force enough. It's kind of short, but it looks so damn good, and the soundtrack is phenomenal.

Yep. Shantae and Mighty Switch Force are about the only unique things I can think of, and I scoured the entire back catalog of 3DS/DSiWare. Unless you're way into Gameboy games and willing to pay $4 for each of them... I would at least suggest Super Mario Land 1 and 2, then anything else from NIntendo's back catalog that suits you. Unfortunately the better titles are all still reserved for "ambassadors," which is a grave error on Nintendo's part, but I think they're just getting around to releasing those "exclusives" to everyone since this week saw Donkey Kong JR.

@Jack268: @Captain_Felafel: I'll check out MSF.

@AndrewB: I have both those GB games on it already, also I am an ambassador, no interest in any of those games.

Wait a week and Phoenix wright will be out

Assuming that's your thing (which statistically, it probably isn't)

Congratulations, you just bumped a sixteen-month-old thread to respond to someone that doesn't even post here anymore.

Oh I didn't know Hizang doesn't post here anymore. Do you know why he stopped?

I know this is a dead thread, but on the off chance anyone sees this...

Liberation Maiden by Grasshopper Manafacture (Suda 51).

You play as a high-school girl who becomes the president of New Japan when her dad dies in the role... naturally this means you have to put on a big robot suit and fight aliens stealing your countries "energy" (or soul or something...).

It's a Panzar Dragoon style game, but you're not on rails. And there's no dragons... ... ... it's about five hours long and I thought it was brilliant.

Not sure. All I know is that I haven't seen him around for months.

Wasn't he banned around the time the site was relaunched?

If he was banned, it wasn't something I was aware of.

Yeah, but the specific circumstances of that are his own business. Maybe he has created an alt; I don't know. But there's no sense in speculating about it now.

He was banned for linking to porn in the dead zone thread (started by me during the "all of this will be gone after the new site launches" phase). At least that's what the mods say.

Well, if you're just gonna lay it out there. There's a little more to the story, but that's the gist of it.

Anyone can see exactly what happened if they want to as I've archived the thread in this rar with each page as an html file. Also here.

#21 Posted by TruthTellah (8781 posts) -

@aegon: ha! Wow. I was not aware that had been archived...

Well, some things happened outside that thread, too, but that gives a decent enough impression of how crazy it was.

#22 Posted by PandaBear (1357 posts) -

Oh and that Art of balance game is pretty fun too and i think it had a price drop.

I have no fucking idea what the rest of you are talking about lol

Haha, I kinda miss Hizang and his silly threads.

Anyway, SteamWorld Dig is neat. Fallblox/Crashmo has come out since then too. Any of the Guild games on the eShop are cool too.
