eShop Thursday: “Oasis In A Singed Land” Edition

June 22nd, 2017 | Category: Uncategorized

Ever Oasis unlocks in the 3DS eShop tomorrow, which means there’s a cheap excuse to use another lyric from “Rivers in the Desert” in the title.

Other notables this week include the ACA release of Fatal Fury 2 and the heavily-Zelda-inspired Oceanhorn – Monster of Uncharted Seas, both of which are out today on the Switch.

eShop Thursday: “The End of E3” Edition

June 15th, 2017 | Category: Uncategorized

E3 is officially over.

There were some ups and downs: We got two confirmations that the Metroid series isn’t actually dead, Capcom apparently has no plans at the moment to localize Monster Hunter XX and we know there is a Kirby and Yoshi game in the works for the Switch. Overall, there are a lot of things to look forward to on the Switch in the next couple of years.

Except for Monster Hunter XX in the West.

As for games coming out in the immediate future, ARMS launches onto the Switch tomorrow.

Nintendo confirmed the addition of two bits of free ARMS DLC during today’s Treehouse stream: Spectator Mode, which is coming later this month, and a new character Max Brass, who will be added to the game next month.

eShop Thursday: “Violent Ken is A Great Name” Edition

May 25th, 2017 | Category: Uncategorized

Ultra Street Fighter II: The Final Challengers is out tomorrow. It marks the first official appearance of Violent Ken in a mainline Street Fighter game.

If a $40 release of an updated version of a $15 HD remake is too pricey, there are alternatives, like the ACA version of The King of Fighters ’99, which is out on the Switch today for $7.99.

eShop Thursday: “That’s An Expensive Season Pass” Edition

May 18th, 2017 | Category: Uncategorized

Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia comes out tomorrow. The remake of the Famicom’s Fire Emblem Gaiden updates many of the original game’s mechanics while also adding some modern conventions… like DLC.

Also available at launch will be a $44.99 season pass. The five-pack, 22-piece DLC pack is 30 percent cheaper than buying everything individually, but it is also $5 more than the base game.

Though, in fairness, the upcoming DLC will be substantial, featuring exclusive classes, characters and a prologue chapter.

So, the ACA version of Garou: Mark of the Wolves drops onto the Switch this week, bringing with it Terry Bogard’s best voice clip.

Unfortunately, it is likely to get overshadowed by behemoth that is Minecraft, as the Switch edition makes its way to the eShop today.

eShop Thursday: “Legally-Distinct NBA Jam” Edition

May 04th, 2017 | Category: Uncategorized

NBA Playgrounds comes out this Tuesday. Saber Interactive’s arcade-y two-on-two basketball game definitely draws a lot of inspiration from the classic NBA Jam series, but there’s no telling whether it will play as well.

Other releases of note this week, Bonk’s Revenge is now available on the Wii U Virtual Console and there is a demo for Blaster Master Zero on the Switch and 3DS.

April 27th, 2017 | Category: Uncategorized

And we all know we’re gonna buy it, too.

Other than Mario Kart, this week’s eShop offerings include Puyo Puyo Tetris and ACA NEOGEO OVER TOP.

There is also Kamiko, a small 2D action game from Skipmore. It’s been getting fairly favorable reviews and it’s only $4.99. So, it may be worth checking out as an impulse buy.

eShop Thursday: “Wonder, Wonder What’s in A Wonder Boy” Edition

April 20th, 2017 | Category: Uncategorized

Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap, Lizardcube’s remake of the 1989 Master System’s Wonder Boy III, is out on the Switch this week.

It should be perfectly fine to purchase in the U.S., unlike a certain chocolate treat that was only a choking hazard to dumb people who don’t pay attention to things or notice when something inedible is in their mouth.
