eShop games of the week: Sonic Racing, Mega Man 2 and more..

Well, I'm never one to turn down a free demo, so that's at the top of my list.
I love Mega Man 2. It's is my favourite Mega Man game (that I've played), but it's about a pound more that it costs on the Wii virtual console. I suppose you get the privilege of taking it will you, but still I don't think I need it that badly.

Really interested in trying SAASRT on 3DS. Want to see how it plays compared to the Wii U / Home Console versions.

Hmmm, probably just the demo for me too. I saw the srceenshot of Sengoku 2 and immediatley thought 'Oh God, not another fighter' as if the VC isn't drowning in enough of them as it is, but I was suprised when I saw no health bars and read that it's a side scolling beat 'em up.

I probably still won't be getting it, its just nice that there's something other than a fighter being released.

Well Transformed had better be damn well worth the wait. I'm bored of Mario Kart.

Hope that sonic racing is decent, as I need a change from mk7.
Not that it's a bad game or anything :D

I need something interesting to write here.

Apart from the demo, I may get MM2. I only have one in the series, and I could play it on the bus...

Thanks to Martinisawesome for the sig
Did you know? I have not been here for a very long time. I bet tons of exciting stuff has happened while I was gone. Hm. Maybe not.

Get them on Wii since they're cheaper. As far as classic Mega Man goes I'd suggest starting with Mega Man 2. The first one isn't quite as good I find, and MM3 is trickier to work out the weaknesses of each Robot Master, whereas in 2 it can be more logical. Also MM2 has Metal Blades and you don't have to fight the super irritating Yellow Devil.
The Wii VC also has 4 and 5, but I've not played them yet so I don't know what they're like.

Definitely getting MM2, got MM1 last year from eshop, first time playing any MM game before and it was pretty good. Fractured soul looks an interesting game too, so the demo is mine.

I'll be getting Megaman 2, most certainly. I enjoyed the first one, and call me a wuss, but the ability to save state on the 3DS, as you might with an emulator, is a god send with games of this difficulty.
