Really not a fan of coloured see-through shells, I just think they look tacky. But as I seem to recall Gameboy models in that style these have a certain retro-ish feel about them.

I think they're kinda neat, but I'm mostly jealous that they come in super sized Pocket Monsters boxes. :lol: Could just import them but it would cost me a small fortune to have all of them and just for Japanese text heavy games. lol.

Does anybody know if Code of Princess was released on the Euro e-shop? I know it definitely didn't get a physical release here but I can't remember if we got the digital version.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

We did yeah, I even own it. :lol: The asking price is about the same as other digital retail games (£29.99 I think.) but they do occasionally discount it for around the £11-12 mark. Now that I check, its on offer right now until the 31st for £12.49.

Havent played it much but slight warning, it does take up a lotta blocks.

Cheers. Got some eshop credit at Christmas so I may have to take advantage of that offer. I don't really have much saved block-wise anyway so I should be fine.

I've just started collecting for 3DS. I have Castlevania, both N64 Zelda reboots, Starfox 64, Luigis Mansion 2 and a few others. I just ordered Shovel Knight without reading any press or reviews which is kind of breaking my own golden rule. Was I wrong too do this? Is it any good?

Shovel Knight is genuinely fantastic. I couldn't get on with the Plague Knight add-on at all, though, which is half the package.

3DS is superb. I'm still wondering when Power Drift will come out as part of the 3D classics. Came out on 25th December in Japan, but nothing yet announced for Europe :(
