Robert’s Pick: While I tempted to give a nod to Natsume Championship Wrestling, part of me is still holding out for Capcom’s Saturday Night Slam Masters to make its way to Virtual Console, and renew its reign over the roster of 16-bit wrestling subordinates. But, instead of a half-hearted pick, I’d recommend that all my JRPG-loving brethren save their cash for the January release of Atelier Ayesha Plus: The Alchemist of Dusk. It was an immensely enjoyable journey on the PlayStation 3, and one that I can’t wait to revisit in portable and ‘Plus’ form.

  1. More “I Love My Horse”? I thought we got that out of the way last week.

  2. And no lolicon in the weekly pic. 🙁

  3. Mega Man Zero is $8? I thought Nintendo was having a sale on Mega Man games…

  4. Metal Gear Solid Snake Eater 3D

    Nothing says new releases quite like two year old games.

  5. Nothing for me this week. The holidays broke me.

  6. I can’t wait to play Resogun on Vita. Hopefully it can handle the game.

  7. Twas the week before Christmas
    and all the releases were done,
    All the good game’s were out,
    All except one.

    Resogun was coming to the little machine by Sony.
    And can’t be stopped by all this North Korean hacking baloney.
    Shooting, flying, all on a portable screen.
    Will answer my wishes and satisfy my Christmas Dream.
