I would've done a status update instead, but those seem to have dissapeared for the time being.

Anyways, I'm surprised, I thought they were coming tomorrow. Saw a few people on the eShop on my friends list, so decided to check it out and they were there, ready to donwload. So I've queud them up and hopefully they're donwloading.

Also if I've missed something and it's already got a thread or something, someone can delete this thread.

Ah, so they are. Sweet as!

Just to let those know who haven't done this before, you go to "Settings/Other" in the eShop and then down to "Titles you've downloaded" in order to access the download option. Scroll until you see the games.

I've just been sticking to WarioWare for the moment. Loved the DS one, this one's great too.

Tried F-Zero as well, takes a bit of getting used to. You can't just accelerate and drift every corner like you do in Mario Kart. Or maybe you can and I haven't worked it out.

Super Circuit is very hard to get used to after being addicted to Mario Kart 7 for the last week lol. I was a little annoyed that Sleep Mode downloads didn't work for me and I had to download them one by one. Is there some little trick I'm missing or is the Nintendo Wi-Fi USB Connector just being useless?

Sleep mode worked fine for me, might be the USB connector?

I've tried (and failed) at both MK and F-Zero, guess I'm too used to the handling in MK7. That said though Kirby, Zelda, Metroid and Wario are all awesome, and make me really glad I bought the system at launch. Playing Minish Cap on my 3DS while my 3 year old son plays the cart on my old GBA is just great :)

Make sure you close the eShop app. It wasn't working for me either until I worked that out.

I just wish I could erase my collective memories of Metroid Fusion and play it again from scratch.

Why does Metroid have to be so good ;-; Metroid Prime it is!

It works by tapping accelerate quickly as you're going around the corner and using the air brakes for the last few degrees.

A great way to see this in action is to watch the staff replay on Championship.

Half the time I'm fighting shdw_stkr and the other time I'm playing against the Random Number Generator. Not that I'm complaining, because the RNG is a fickle mistress and doesn't play nice with him either!

There's an option under System Settings > Internet Connection > Spotpass that allows you to toggle whether or not you want to allow the system to automatically download software in Sleep Mode. It is possible that you have not configured this option to allow such downloads, so that's worth having a look at. :)

Was already turned on. Guess the USB Connector just doesn't like me. :P
