Got the full version of Space Invaders Extreme. Short review: it's good, but the DS version is better. It feels faster, like there's more stuff going on.

The Arkanoid demo was surprisingly fun (I normally don't like any pong-type games, because I'm very bad at them). I might even consider dropping the points on this at some point.

The Wolverine demo was fun. It struck me as Ninja Gaiden with mutants, which is kind of awesome. I wouldn't pay for it, but the demo is worth your time.

I tried the Genesis Collection demo on the PS3 and it did nothing to sell me on buying the retail version. Streets of Rage and Sonic 3 just aren't as good as I remembered, and Space Harrier, I never enjoyed that one. Plus, this would need some Gunstar Heroes and Toe Jam & Earl, except I already have those on the Virtual Console anyway.

ARGH! I thought Metroid was coming out at the end of this month. The 3DS makes me happy that I have not upgraded my old school original DS. I can't wait for the new Zelda, the Mario Party-type game and of course the return of Donkey Kong Country.
