Nippon Marathon in theory is a good idea, but when it came to actually playing the game I did not enjoy myself and I really wanted to. Maybe there’s fun to be had if played with friends but I was so put off myself that I wouldn’t force any friends to play it.
Luigi's Mansion on 3DS is strictly a remake for people who either no longer have a copy of Luigi's Mansion or have never played it before. To anyone who still has their original Gamecube copy, just play that; the additions are not worth $40. It's still a great game by all accounts because the design of the game is fun and it is completely playable, but the controls in this version are just awful and with Dark Moon on the same console there's absolutely no excuse for that.
I would suggest picking this game up and having it being the side game to the blockbuster titles coming out right now to bridge the gap between the big releases, because it moves fast enough with the plot to always feel like something is being accomplished but not as fast as say Spider-Man that came out the same week. Don't let Dragon Quest XI be lost in the Fall game rush.
Wario Ware Gold is the best of Wario Ware and more, and a reason to pick up a 3DS again. It's got a super weird sense of humor that isn't replicated, it pays loving tribute to Nintendo's history, and most importantly it's pure fun. There's plenty of game here for the price as well, with it all being unlocked the more it's played. A must own in handheld gaming and a good sign that the 3DS isn't dead yet.
At the end of the day though, this is just blackjack. It may be the most aesthetically pleasing version of blackjack, but that's it. I would recommend skipping the console versions and trying out the mobile versions instead.
At the end of the day The Long Reach is worth the short time it takes to play, I'm just not sure at full price. Had the ending really stuck the landing on everything the gameplay was delivering I'd say it's a must, but unfortunately the story is just alright. On sale I think any adventure fan will find enjoyment in The Long Reach.
