A smaller update this week, but the quality is much stronger

So there are only two games out this week, but theyre both good. Theres also some great original content available on Nintendo Video as well—its a new Kid Icarus animation to watch!

3DS Virtual Console

Metroid (NES, Nintendo, $7.50) - Go back to where it all began. Samus first adventure out into the universe. If youre an Ambassador you can update the game for free to the final version. If youve never tried the first Metroid title you owe it to yourself to give it a bash. It still holds up quite well.

Virtual Console

Strider (Mega Drive, SEGA, 800 Points) - One of the Mega Drive fans favourite titles, I will have take your word for how good it is though. Never played it before. Will you?

Nintendo Video

Kid Icarus: Uprising - Original 3D Animation Series - An original animation series from Nintendo for the 3DS, in 3D. Split over six weeks there will be a new instalment every two (they come in two parts). Thanatos Rising is the first episode.

Anything for you this week?
