Ever kind of looked at the Wii and DS game libraries and wished Nintendo still had that ‘Seal of Quality’ thing? Or desperately started praying that the flood of crap found on the app store’s of the mobile phone world wouldn’t make it’s way to the 3DS and Wii U? Well, you could just be about to have another breakdown, because this new ‘indie’ title looks to be one of the worst games ever released on a Nintendo system. And trust me, in an age where Torchlight and Fireplacing actually existed… that’s actually saying something.
Just look at Meme Run:
See that low quality piece of flash game like crap? Well… according to the developer… it’s coming to the Wii U eShop.
Which in case you’re wondering, goes along with their future focus on more than just fan games, such as entirely original indie titles for services like the 3DS and Wii U eShop (hopefully).
So why the change, at this time of any? Well, put simply… the Spriter’s Resource was having quite a few issues over the last few weeks, and because of that, Fusion Fangaming was basically down for over a month. Hence a new webhost (which has nothing to do with TSR) and name were in order as a way of reviving the site and removing the reliance on a third party with their own technical issues to resolve.
Want to read the original announcement about this? Find the link to their new site? Hear my thoughts on the change of address and (future) focus? If so, keep reading! (more…)
Don’t take as confirmed yet, but from a couple of lines of the Nintendo UK official website (and elsewhere), it seems pretty likely that Mario Golf World Tour is going to be getting a demo on the eShop.
The proof? A line on the official site talking about the age required to get demos, and a listing for a demo elsewhere on the site. Head inside to see the proof for yourself!
And guess what? It takes up 11GB of space if downloaded digitally from the eShop. Which means that anyone stupid/unlucky enough to got a basic set will need to get a whole hard drive just to fit the game on (while everyone else will likely lose about half their storage space anyway).
Which is quite appropriate considering the Sochi Winter Olympic Games are going on right now. The deal is apparently active in both the US and Europe too, and gives you a nice 30% discount on the game’s price.
But my opinion?
Don’t bother. The game’s apparently not that good to begin with, and the only real ‘decent’ aspect is supposedly the soundtrack (which can be listened to for free on Youtube or numerous other websites). Just watch the actual games on TV instead, you’ll get all the enjoyment and none of the waggle controls.
As a Nintendo fan goes, I have to say I’m probably not quite as dedicated as some others out there. Indeed, with my constantly changing interests, general lack of money and tendency to buy very few games a year in general, there are actually quite a few top Nintendo classics I completely missed out on back in the days of their release. So here’s my list, a list of Nintendo classics that I only got to enjoy through the eShop and later rereleases
Since while they may not be ‘classics’ like those on the Virtual Console, I’m pretty sure a lot of people would appreciate some sort of way to buy them now. Especially the more obscure ones they may have missed out on a couple of years ago or so.
So why should they be added? Find out in the full article below!
When it comes to digital distribution and video games, the general consensus seems to be that physical copies of games are on the way out. But has Nintendo’s very own StreetPass system kind of hurt the digital game sales ‘model’? Has their new hardware feature actually made it so digital distribution isn’t really too much more convenient than buying games in actual box form? I think so, and here’s why…
