My Thoughts

This is a very busy week with many big name games releasing. I plan on picking up Zelda for 3ds and I got Gunslugs 2 review code so look forward to seeing that soon. I'm surprised that Wii U didn't get Wild Gunman for Wii U and Wii virtual console since it was Back to the Future day yesterday and European virtual console got that game.
