So Nintendo is apologizing to early adopters. Rewarding them…whatever. It seems even the re-release of what many consider to be the greatest game of all time was not able to push the big N over 850K sales of it’s new portable funtime machine. With absolutely nothing I can think of coming out in August, and Star Fox 64 (a remake…) coming out in mid-Sept, it seems Nintendo has finally realized they counted the chickens before they hatched…and those eggs without chickens leaked egg shit everywhere.

So for those of us who bought the 3DS before August 11th, when the price drops 80 dollars, we get 20 free downloads. Note you have had to have registered your sorry self on the online store first. Also when I say free 20 downloads, I mean 10 NES and 10 GBA.
I gotta say though, I like how this is shaping up. Assuming the memory can support it, and the right games are put out, this may be the best “I’m sorry we fucked up” deal ever, putting the PSN thing to absolute shame. Weird thing about this is none of my personal information was even given away, I just happened to willingly overpay for something that has not lived to the hype.
Again though, this all comes down to the games that will be given away to those of us at love Nintendo no matter how many times they smack us around. Here is my list of what I want to see (no order mind you):
1. Mario 3
2. The Legend of Zelda
3. Mother-fucking Kirby
4. Marble Madness
7. Castlevania: Simon’s Quest
8. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
9. Mega Man 5
10. Mega Man 4
1. Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow
2. Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance
3. Mario Kart: Super Circuit
4. Any GBA Pokemon game and give it DS/3DS compatibility (Take your fucking pick Nintendo)
5. Legend of Zelda: Four Swords
6: Legend of Zelda: Minish Cap
7: Metroid Fusion
8. That LUNAR remake that was on the GBA
9. Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones
10. Final Fantasy V Advance
(Cheating) 11. Final Fantasy VI Advance
If this was allowed to happen to me for free, I would wave the banner at the front of Nintendo’s fanclub forevermore. Really if a good part of this was given, that would be more than enough, as I already figure I will not be made this happy.
