Fractured Soul looks like a game that i will die every 5 minuets playing...

Dont get me wrong, for a eShop game, it looks stunning, depending on other peoples thaughts on the game i might take the plunge and buy it :wink:

Does the Wii U not get a weekly update? I've said it before, but again they're focusing too much on the 3DS! The Wii U needs attention.

It all depends on who is developing the games, if none are finalised for the Wii U, then they can hardly place anything on it, can they.
I remeber when 3DS was released, we did not have a eShop on there for quite a while. At least Wii U has something on there.

At last, the original Blaster Master, although Tom you didn't do a very good job in bigging it up. ^^; There's more to it than that. I'd suggest reading up on its history. It sold very poorly in Japan, yet achieved cult status in the West. The game has one of the best 8-bit soundtracks in the NES library, and it's in my top 10 best NES games ever released. Hard as hell, but it's worth every penny. I still have the original cart somewhere. =D

Fractured Soul actually looks like it could be really good. I've seen DSiWare games with a similar concept, but this looks like it has much more style. My only concern is their claim of "Mega Man hard". Is it hard because it's genuinely challenging, or hard because it's poorly designed. I look forward to some kind of review to see which it is.
Problem is though, I've got plenty of games to keep me going for ages so even if it does turn out to be great it'll be a while before I get to play it.
