Nintendo eShop Update for February 19, 2015

I’m going to go ahead and phone in today’s eShop update. I feel like I’m justified, because Nintendo is phoning it in too. There are only five new games this week, so nothing distracts from Kirby and the Rainbow Curse. All we get are 2 games and 1 game. There aren’t even any appealing eShop more »

Today’s is practically here only in spirit. Yes, some and games were released, but it was a cursory gesture. Why?

Punch-Out!! on Wii U is great, with one exception

When Nintendo announced digital Wii games on the Wii U eShop, I was pretty excited. Mostly because Punch-Out!!, one of the Wii’s low-key greats, was on its way for a great price. Next Level Games has done great work every time it had a Nintendo property to play with, and Punch-Out!! is no exception. The more »

It’s Thursday, which means it’s one of those days. An update kind of affair. There are six games available right now, with 3 on the and 5 on the . Did that not make sense? Let me elaborate – some of the games are multiplatform. It’s also a rather big sale week on the eShop. more »

I don’t know how it is where you are, but it’s zero here in Chicago. That’s not even counting windchill.
