Quite happy with those prices actually. Might go for Chasing Aurora and Trine 2.

I played Trine 2 at Eurogamer and was very impressed. At that price I'll definitely download that one! At the price of the Nintendo games, that you can buy for around £10 cheaper in the shops or through an online retailer, I wont be buying any of those though.

I knew Mighty Switch Force HD wouldn't make the list. WayForward games never come out here the same time as America... That's the only eShop game I'm after, along with the Deluxe version of Mutant Mudds.

We had better get it by Christmas!

I don't think that was ever a launch title in the UK, was it?

Does anyone know how much retail games will cost on the eshop, the american prices translate to about £38 but I doubt it will be that low after seeing the 3ds prices.

The same price as the quoted full price in normal shops, so £40-50.

I'd also like to know the exact prices for games like NSMBU and Zombiu on the eshop. Some places have priced it at £42.99, some at £44.99, and I've seen some expensive places pricing it at £49.99. Exact price would be appreciated so I know whether to buy Zombiu in store, or buy it through the eshop (and as a result collect some premium points to redeem later, since 8 points per pound is pretty good and will net around 320 points).

Anyone with the information?

Sorry, I just prefer play quality games...
Not to say these so-called "indie" games companies lack quality in their games, some don't ...but, the majority do!
...and to take a risk at buying a game from them, well ...it's just not for me!

You've never actually played any indie games, have you? If you had, you'd know what an utterly ridiculous statement you've just made.

Unless they put GameCube games on there, I really couldn't care less to be honest. :/

I'd love a HD version of Mario Sunshine or Twilight Princess but I bet the Gamecube game that'll look the best in HD would be Wind Waker by far.

Nothing there for me. I played Trine 2 at Eurogamer and it was awful; Chasing Aurora looked pretty boring and repetitive from ONM's video and the rest don't really interest me.

I was going to wait to finish NSMBU and play some Nintendo Land before I got Trine 2, but it's on launch offer at reduced price. Darn Nintendo, now I'll have to get it before the offer ends. Wait, the poster above me has played it and says it's awful hmm, now I just don't know anymore.

Was hoping they'd be cheaper so for now just Nano Assault as it is relevant to my interests.

Don't let my opinion put you off: it's totally down to the sort of games you enjoy. I'm more about the classic platformers and jumping on enemies to kill them, but this is more centered around attacking strategically and using different characters' abilities.
If you prefer casual platformers similar to Mario or Sonic, then I'm not sure if this would appeal to you as much as if you like action platformers.
Here's a (sort of) review I did for the game from the impressions I got at Eurogamer: http://lootpalace.com/forum/game-discus ... ge-2#p3129
You'll probably want to skip to the fourth paragraph.
Again, it's my opinion, so if I were you, I would look for some way/somewhere to try-before-you-buy.

You should definitely give Trine 2 a go if you haven't played it on a different platform before.

Little Inferno all the way. I was sold as soon as I heard it was from the creators of World of Goo, one of my favourite games on the Wii so definitely looking forward to this one. Might check out Trine 2 as well if I get the time.
