I need to grab Weapon Shop and Liberation Maiden. Crimson Shroud and Attack of the Friday Monsters were very good though. How is Chariot? That one caught my eye a long time ago and I forgot about it.

I grabbed a bunch from this sale and am pretty excited at the offering:

WiiU:
Don't Starve: Giant Edition - I looked at this before on PS4 but the tablet and price point had me onboard to try it here.

Adventures of Pip - looks great

Chariot - as a big local co-op fan, this looks awesome. Hoping my wife enjoys it.

Astral Breakers - was only $2.99, worth a shot.

3DS:

Siesta Fiesta and Huzami - both 50% off and right in my wheelhouse. Real excited for these.

----

Liberation Maiden is a great price, on the fence on if I'd play it or not. I enjoy shooters and the library is pretty limited on the 3DS.

As prfsnl noted, you have to look at the price drops - not just the diddy kong black friday sales link. Huzami was a nice surprise to be discounted. They also lowered some select virtual console titles (Mario Golf 64 for $4.99 for example).

Nice. I hope you enjoy Hazumi. It is a very unique (and very challenging) puzzle game. If you like Breakout, you should enjoy it.

I got a few games from the recent sale though I could have easily spent another $40-50.

What I got this time:
Crashmo - Nintendo
Inazuma 11 - Level-5
Liberation Maiden - Level-5
Starship Damrey - Level-5
Weapon Shop de Omasse - Level-5

I finished up my mo collection with the addition of Crashmo. This is the first time I've seen it on sale so a must get for me. I also added significantly to my Guild collection leaving just Bugs vs Tanks and Aero Porter still to get though I haven't decided if I want them or not. I did grab Inazuma 11 which I wanted last time there was a sale so I had to grab it this time.

I'll probably regret it later but I passed on Kirby's Return to Dreamland since I'm still hoping to find the retail game instead. I also passed on Mario vs Donkey Kong, Little Inferno, and the Phoenix Wright trilogy which I'll get at some point. Chariot and Never Alone both looked interesting as well. My hard drive is nearly full so I'm having trouble pulling the trigger on more Wii U eShop games.

I wouldn't recommend Aeroporter. It's OK, but it gets tiresome quickly. Its not as fluid or fast as I'd like and the lack of music is a real shame - it's basically just irritating Airport terminal noises.

Sounds like a pass then and Bugs vs tanks was universally panned as the worst of the Guild games so I'm likely done with what I want from that set. The rest were well made, unique, and a solid value at $3 each.

There are some big discounts in there and I recommend Mighty Switch Force 1/2, Shantae, and Stealth as well.

What are your thoughts on Fractured Soul, Lone Survivor, and The Swapper? Discounts on these are enticing.

Fractured Soul is a solid action game that makes great use of the dual screens and the 3DS's 3D capabilities. I probably would not go for it at full price, but the discount price is a good deal. Lone Survivor is well-reviewed, but I have not spent much time with it. The Swapper is awesome, and it is a steal at $2.99.

Seconding the Swapper, much more interesting gameplay than something like say Ori and the Blind Forest
Return to Nintendo
