    I bought a 25€ E-Shop Card without thinking what I should buy :hateit:
    and now Idk what Game I should get....I thought about getting Shantae half Genier Heroe (costs 17€) or Wonder Boy (costs 20€).
    I like both Games and it looks like that Nintendo will announce today at the E3 a mass VC Release....
    From what Game will I get more Time/Fun ? (in your honest opinion)
    What do you think will the GC VC cost ?
    Do you have another recommendation what I could/should buy ?

    PS: Sorry for my horrible English

    Blaster Master Zero. Also if you wait, Mighty Gunvolt burst will be out soon. Two games I recommend, if you haven't played shovel Knight yet, I also recommend it, but is more expensive than the 2 I mentioned. So go with the two i said already. :)

    I am really interested in Shantae tbh.
    Still haven't played it so I can't recommend it.

    Just finished Wonder Boy. It's a short game but really fun. The art is great, the soundtrack either. I had the same Dillema, I choose Wonder Boy and I do not regret

    I played both games, and while I love Shantae, I think Wonderboy is better, but it's really up to your personal tastes. Shantae has more levels but it's levels and you can transform at anytime, while Wonderboy 3 is a early metroidvania with lots to do.

    I think you should get both those games and right now just decide which of them you buy first.

    wonderboy is awesome but it can be confusing for new players it literally doesn't give you one clue where your supposed to go. also it doesn't last long i can finish it in just 3 hours STILL worth it though :P

    I have just finished Shantea. It took me 8,5 hours to finish with 90% completition. it was a lot of fun and looks very beautiful in handheld mode. I recommend the game.

    Shovel Knight treasure trove is probably the best and "most" platformer you can buy for your eshop card. I played 25 hours.

    A short game ? Then I will pass. Not worth because a short game is a waste time and a money.:wtf:

    I think short but good and well thought Games are better than Games that are brutally difficult or have a ton of useless Quests to stretch the Time....

    It's short, but worth every penny IMHO.
    2D plataformers usually are short games, specially old school era like this.
    I think both are great games, the question should be:
    What do I buy first?

    Sorry but I played the Demo of Blaster Master Zero and my Hands vibrated all time XD
    (and the Demo didn't convinced me like Shantae and Wonderboy did :/)
