So Nintendo's finally gotten through most of its early generation Game Boy games now. Most of the colourful fluff of launch games are gone; here comes the good stuff. The first of hopefully a trend of change is a Metroid title. About time, right? There's also some 'fun' on WiiWare if you're keen, but I imagine you'll be playing something else this week right?
3DS Virtual Console Metroid II: Return of Samus (Game Boy, Nintendo, $6.00) - Perhaps it's not the best Metroid game ever but it's certainly not the worst. In 1991 Nintendo did its best to bring Samus Aran to the Game Boy and they mostly pulled it off. For $6.00 it might be worth a stab in the dark.
WiiWare Big Town Shoot Out (PDP, 500 Points) - I'm going to pull in the power here of Serrels' “This Week In...” articles for this one and just say, should you care? No.
