I got my copy of Star Fox for a fiver in Cash Converters less than three months after it came out. Bizarre! I'd have been happy paying ShopTo's £19.85 for it though.

Speaking of ShopTo, they're selling a game called Mensa Academy for £6.85 at the minute - HMV are offering £14 trade-in for it or £12 cash.

On the downside, it's still the short and easy game it always was, and the motion control option is dire. Still, it's always a good game for a quick blast.
It may be short but that hasn't stopped me playing time after time. Its ace.

Played through it in 20 minutes, then spent a further 5 wondering why it's considered such a classic, then spent a further 10 minutes listing it on eBay. Complete waste of space imo :lol: much better games available on the system

that was in store about a month ago, probably all gone by now but still worth a try.

Favourite game for 3DS so far for me has to be Thor 3DS. Nothing else has gone into the system.

Just a heads up to anyone who wants it but Shopto have Resident Evil The Mercenaries 3DS up for £10.85

Ordered it myself yesterday not a bad price at all especially since you basically need to buy it new if you want to get everything yourself.

ShadowMan wrote:I finally finished playing through VVVVVV today. Its ace, nice and hard but its challenging not unfair. I've now unlocked all kinds of new modes to play the game through with though I doubt I'll get many/any trophies!

Even better seems to be the "player" levels which add all new worlds to the game so I can see me getting many more hours out of this game yet!
Best game on the E-Shop, I reckon.

Finshed the main game with all the trinkets, also found the 'secret' area but I think the other challenges are going to be a bit too difficult.

Also finished the 0.333333 (Easy Mode) player level with all trinkets, took me almost as long as the main game :lol: I haven't even scratched the surface with the other player stages yet as I'm taking a break from playing it, but I think they'll last a fair while.

Downloaded Speedthru: Potzol's Puzzle as it was selling at 25% off (so it was just a little over £4)...surprisingly fun game for that price and I already like it more than Pullblox, and Let's Golf 3D as well because it's currently on offer for £1.79...not played it yet though.

Received Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask through the post on Thursday too....problem is, I realised that I hadn't actually played through Professor Layton and the Spectre's Call yet :lol: so I've made a start on that first instead.
