Nintendo E Shop Updates (30 Sep 2016)

asgv

Ah… Everyone is about to wake each other up tomorrow. Or just Billy Joe Armstrong from Green Day. September is ending! And the date to Pokemon Sun and Moon gets closer! (along with the NES Mini and the newly announced Famicom Mini. Damn Nintendo) But still, lets check out what’s worth for your WiiU and 3DS through the E Shop.

WiiU

New Play Control Pikmin! (USD 19.99, Wii VC): If you feel bummed in not getting a Physical copy of the game, at least here’s the digital one. Dubbed the definitive version of the game, Pikmin does work best when played with a Wii Remote. So, go ahead!

Quest of Dungeons (USD 8.99, also available on 3DS, buy 1 version and get the other free): Dungeon crawlers, evil dude taking all the way, all in 16 bit glory. The thing is, it feels like a throwback to games of the 90s plus punishing difficulty. I say yes, this is pretty neat.

The best sale this week goes to Bit Trip Presents Runner 2, and it’s discounted by 50% until 3rd October. Not that long though. 😦

3DS

Azure Striker Gunvolt 2 (USD 13.49 at Launch, USD 14.99 after launch): Yay! GV returns in a sequel! And why can’t Mighty No 9 be like this instead? Anyhoo, can’t make out a proper review yet since it just came out (might not even be on the eshop yet as of writing), but hey, it’s pretty darn cheap.

Yo-Kai Watch 2 Bony Spirits / Fleshy Souls (USD 39.99): Meh, go buy the physical one. I got them. And it’s much better than the first even though, it’s basically an alternate timeline story of the game with more Yo-Kai’s and better refined combat.

And you know where to get them Nintendo E Shop Cash Codes now~

Nintendo E Shop Updates (23 Sep 2016)

smt-iva-cover

There’s something good for each console. The 3DS already has Dragon Quest VII from last week. This week it’s Shin Megami Tensei IV Apocalypse and TOKYO RUMBLE. Then the WiiU has just rereleased Donkey Kong Country Returns for the Wii VC. And the New 3DS owners has got Final Fight 2 and 3. Owh, the WiiU has got free games too to boot.

Nintendo WiiU

Severed (USD 13.49 for this one week, or else it’s USD 14.99 later): This  used to be a Vita title and is one of Nintendo’s Nindies Summer Jam promos. The game itself is actually pretty decent. First person dungeon crawler while you swipe the screen to attack limbs specifically. Give it a try!

Donkey Kong Country Returns (Wii VC, USD 19.99): Because we all love some Donkey Kong platforming. No kidding.

Activision is putting a sale on The Amazing Spider-Man 2 until end of this month. No really. Go for it.

Nintendo 3DS

Shin Megami Tensei IV Apocalypse (USD 49.99): Don’t buy this. Buy the physical so you get the emblems also.

River City: Tokyo Rumble (USD 29.99) (releasing on 27th this month, but I might as well lump it here as well): Kunio Kun is back! And in ENGLISH! You thought you’re never getting it? Well, Natsume is a little empty in their coffers and wants to show that to you. haha. So, here goes nothing. Next tuesday get ready!

Final Fight 2 / 3 (USD 7.99, SNES VC at N3DS only): Ah Final Fight… It never ceases to amaze me. but, personally, I still like Streets of Rage 2. Sorry.

Atlus is discounting SMT DS 2 Record Breaker to USD 24.99 this week. Pretty sweet deal.

And you know where to get your E Shop Codes…

Nintendo E Shop Update (9 Sep 2016)

aa-soj

The biggest release of course is Ace Attorney Spirit of Justice. Now would actually be a fantastic time if THE GREAT ACE ATTORNEY WOULD SHOW HIMSELF NOW. COME ON CAPCOM.

WiiU

Jotun: Valhalla Edition (USD 13.49 for now, but only until 15th September): If you’re looking for a gorgeously looking game based on Norse mythology (while you wait for Kratos to make his way there), this is the game to play. Beautiful, challenging, and fun, this WiiU indie title should not be missed.

Letter Quest: Remastered (USD 9.99): If you like me are looking for something to crave Bookworm adventures or wanna play an pseudo RPG + Scrabble combo, this is your game. And trust me on this, this game is sweet.

Mario Strikers Charged (USD 19.99):Eh, if you want Mario playing bola then sure this wouldn’t hurt. haha.

Mighty No. 9 is on discount to USD 15.99 until next Thursday.

3DS

Ace Attorney Spirit of Justice (USD 29.99): Seriously, you wanna read my description about the weirdest defense lawyer in the whole world who basically owns the heart of every single human being with his charm? Stop and go buy it already geez.

Super Castlevania IV (N3DS VC, USD 7.99): Well children, don’t compare this with Symphony of the Night because you know this game is already insane enough. Whip it good!

Only one noteworthy Atlus discount this week, and it’s The Legend of Legacy for USD 24.99

And I will save you the trouble of finding the USD E Shop Cash Code for the Nintendo E Shop if you would just kindly click here. Cough.

Nintendo E Shop Update (26 August 2016)

ace-attorney

As we gear up for a bunch of good things coming, especially Ace Attorney Spirit of Justice, lets not forget the interesting fighting games coming exclusively to the New 3DS range. Yes, it’s the SNES VC titles.

WiiU

Super Mario64 DS (WiiU VC, USD 19.99): Not content on having released the N64 version on the WiiU, here’s the DS version. No really, not kidding. Touch screen control is a bonus here. But not sure how uber pixelated it looks now. haha.

3DS

Street Fighter Alpha 2: While it’s not 3, Alpha 2 is still a beast to play with. And the smoothness on the New 3DS should complement on how gorgeous it feels. Hoho.

Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers: Want something more technical without Super gauges? Play this one. It’s uberly balanced and you can use almost anyone and still be a God. Seriously.

Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting: Want something even classic? Go for this. Just… beware of people with Zangief. Seriously.

The Legend of Kusakari (USD 4.99): Imagine the fact that Nintendo approved an indie title that looks WAY TOO SIMILAR to Zelda. No seriously, that’s the Legend of Kusakari. Well, probably not that many dungeons since the game is all about you using your sickle to hack weeds and grass and at the same time fight monsters living those places.I recommend you buy this just for the heck of hacking grass. Really.

And lastly, Ace Attorney Spirit of Justice Demo is now available!

Sales

Nintendo E Shop Updates (12 Aug 2016)

ace-attorney

This week’s most impressive things (and that’s not saying much) actually goes to the 3DS platform. Because of how limited the releases are. Besides, having another sales on the Ace Attorney series isn’t bad at all. (Which reminds me I really need to finish on Ace Attorney Trials and Tribulations) Also, I’m using that picture because Spirit of Justice is releasing on 8th September 2016!

WiiU

Mario Sports Mix (Wii VC, USD 19.99): It’s that Square Enix game where they took the success out of classic Mario basketball, and introduced new ones like Volleyball and Ice Hockey. It’s not really Wii Remote intensive, but still pretty darn fun.

Wave Race 64 (N64VC, USD 9.99): Ah the classic fun racer. Well, maybe it’s not as great as a classic Mario Kart, but still this made… erh… waves in the past. Cough.

This week’s sale probably goes to Trine and Trine 2 again. because, really, how did you not play that game yet?

3DS

Mega Man X (SNES VC, USD 7.99): Go back in time. Way way back in time into one of the best Mega Man’s ever released in gaming history. A spin off the cutesy version that ended up being so good it spawned too many sequels… Until Capcom decided to cari pasal. Sheesh.

3DS Sales

With the announcement of the release date for Ace Attorney Spirit of Justice on 8th Sep, Dual Destinies and Ace Attorney Trilogy is on sale!

Atlus is lowering the price for Etrian Odyssey Untold and Stella Glow. I’d pick Stella Glow. It’s a hard RPG.

Sega’s 3D Classics Streets of Rage and Shinobi III are great purchases if you malas want to buy the whole 3D Collection.

You know where to buy them Nintendo E Shop Codes right?

Is it worth it to buy (insert game console name) right now?

Some parts of this post may seem insensitive or weird. But, this is a special post when it comes to not just gaming, but about appreciations in life.

2 weeks ago I was beset with some disheartening news: My girlfriend had passed away from a battle with cancer for the longest time of her life. I was away most of the time the week before handling whatever I could for her side of family and friends which included a lot of rapport building. I can tell you I am fine though.

After deciding that the mourning period of someone’s passing is over, I then realised that this is now the time to celebrate those who have left and to cherish their memories as they have left an imprint in our lives that lasts as long as we can.

And then I remembered how short our lives actually are in this world.

Not that such an incident has not happened to me before. But, the magnitude of this incident is bigger than ever. Since it has now affected to the people who now realise that their mortality is shorter than ever. That being said, you can still go anytime.

Within the same week as well, the usual happened. I get people asking “Is it worth it to buy this console/that console right now?” Well, if you believe you have all the time in the world, I’d say you can take your time to wait. But the truth, how much of time do you really think you have?

We don’t know when we’ll ever go. That’s certain.But when you think of it, how many things in life do you really wish to have? To savor? To appreciate? To cherish? None of us can even tell the other where we’re going to go. We might just die as a lump of earth waiting to be converted into petroleum in the very far future.

So, think about it. If you have something that you wish to have, that you wish to start, think about the time that you have for it first. Sure, you can say “I’ll just wait for the next iteration in the future since it may be better improved than previous console.” But truth is, at what cost? At the same time, is buying that game console more important to you, or do you realise that now you have something you gotta achieve in this short span of time.

If I do have someone asking me that question again, my answer would definitely go “Why not? Time spent considering is time wasted in enjoying”. Go live, go celebrate life. And when you’re done, hopefully, the life you lived is the best one you can ever hope for.

Nintendo E Shop Update (1 July 2016)

MHX Timeline event-01
Go download the demo first. Then we’ll play together. 😀

Is this a slow week for the 3DS? Of course not. Not especially when the happy (read: so not happy) Zero Time Dilemma (Sequel to Virtue’s Last Reward and 999) is released. Also, we have demos, and then Super Mario RPG for the 64 VC. This is indeed a good week to start July. 😀

WiiU

Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars (USD 7.99): It’s Mario, in an RPG, off to save Peach again from Bowser. What makes it so special? Well, it’s done by SQUARESOFT. With some of the best musics done by Nobuo Uematsu (owh you know, that guy who did the soundtrack for the best FF7 songs there is) and Yoko Shimomura (that LADY who did ALL THE STREET FIGHTER 2 SONGS) and it’s during Squaresoft’s prime. BUY IT IF YOU NEVER PLAYED IT.

There’s a Legends of Hyrule DLC pack for your Hyrule Warriors at USD 9.99. A bunch of characters have been added.

Runbow now has a demo. Seriously, how did you all not buy this?

3DS

Zero Time Dilemma (USD 39.99): Somehow if you haven’t bought it yet, you can do so digitally. If you haven’t played it, go play 999 first.

Sales

Etrian Mystery Dungeon and Etrian Odyssey IV is free from the Atlus tax! Plus both are great RPGs to dive into.

Most importantly however, is that Monster Hunter Generations and 7th Dragon III Code VFD demos are now out and you download them. I will see you very soon at the party!
