Please for the love of God more people buy and play this game you won't regret it. If you need proof go look in the moments in a game where shit got real thread. Tons of mentions of this game. It's pure hype 101% of the time

Damn I'm so glad I waited 2 weeks. Just got a Wii U for NY birthday but held off buying W101 since retail was 30$ or less but eshop was still a full 60. Nice to know I can buy itnow for same price as retail and get to keep going all digital!

It's not just Wonderful 101. There are a lot of price drops this week.

Ninja Gaiden and Game & Wario are down to $30 too.

So they are matching retail prices now? Nintendo Land for €10 and Mario Bros U for €30 next?

I rather get a physical copy for cheaper. Using my eshop credit on those GBA VC games anyway.

Going to buy a digital copy to go along with the physical I got a week after launch (got it for $40 with Target B2G1). There is so much extra stuff to do that always having it on console will be great. At my local TRU it's on clearance for $18 (they're doing a green clearance on a bunch of stuff got some Nicktoons figures). Think I'm gonna get a third copy to keep unopened.

Got Game & Wario from the Target sale too around $27. Really great game. If it drops to $20 I may pick up a digital copy for Miiverse sketch and to unlock cluck-a-pop rewards.

That's cool and all, but the physical copy has been $19.99 at my Walmart for a couple of months now.

Would be really cool if Nintendo allowed us to install games from disc though.

Should i get this game?

I liked the demo
I dont like Viewtiful joe
I like games that are different
I dont like Pikmin
I like games that let you free to do your own stuff and that if you survive you already did great
I hate games in which you have to be ~perfect~ like Rhythm Heaven, runner games or the already mentioned Pikmin
I like Mad World (a lot)
I hate Zack and Wiki
I like Vanquish (a little)
I dont like Bayonetta (but i can come around to enjoy it someday)

Should i get this game?

Nintendo should consider this as a permanent strategy.

More people would be willing to take risks with new IPs if they were priced lower.

I said I would buy it digitally when it went on sale or price dropped and I'm keeping my promise.
Glad you're keeping your word. Hopefully the gameplay clicks for you. If so, you're in for a hell of a ride

Relax. I know it's a solid game. It's just not my cup of tea is all.
Yet it's not worth $30?

I love Viewtiful Joe and liked the demo a lot. I borrowed a friends copy even and played a bit so I know I like it just I refused to pay $60 for a digital copy when I could find it at retail much cheaper. Finally Nintendo has lowered the price! I'm fully digital on my Wii U.

You probably have a point.

Though TW101 is one case where I can truthfully say I bought the game at full price and I ain't even mad. Would do it again.

Is this a sale price or a permanent price drop? Just found out that I don't have space on my Wii U and I can't even buy the game and download it later. Kinda annoying, don't want to delete my Donkey Kong right now cause I know I won't have my saves later. Was gonna buy an external at the end of the month but I guess it forces me to buy one at the end of this week or whenever they update the prices next week if it's just a sale. Also if I buy one that doesn't use power, what is the Y-cable I keep hearing about. I search Y-cable on amazon and just get a bunch of random things that probably are not what I need.

Don't know why you list some of those games. Especially baffling considering you played the demo.
