My Thoughts: 

I am a little sad that Metroid Zero Mission didn't arrive to North America e-shop this week since it came to Europe this week and to Japan months ago , hopefully it will arrive soon. I will be reviewing CODENAME S.T.E.A.M so look for that in the near future. I enjoyed Trine 2 on the Wii U, but never finished it and this looks like another great game if you like 2d side scrolling puzzle adventure games. I never played the original Outrun but this game has tons of buzz around it for being a great game back in the day. Overall seems like a good week for downloads on the e-shop.
