  1. The switch thread is a bit of a mega-thread so seeing if we can carve the eShop part of it into its own chat - not going to create a new thread every week but hopefully this will move some of the traffic out the mega-thread. Can I buy from a browser from the eShop ? You need to access the eShop at least once from your Switch before you can buy online. Once you've done that though, yes you can buy online and it'll download automatically. http://www.nintendo.co.uk/Nintendo-Switch/Games/Games-1178441.html eShop Price Comparison www.eshop-prices.com/?
  2. Since we are getting it after all, I figured a thread was in order Azure Striker Gunvolt (also known as Armed Blue Gunvolt in Japan) is a platform action-game released by Inti Creates for the Nintendo 3DS eShop. It's gameplay is similar to Mega Man Zero (made by the same publisher), but introduced new gameplay elements to the Mega Man style of game such as Gunvolt's ability to "tag" enemies and target multiple targets at once, adding an additional layer of complexity to the genre. Like Mega Man, Azure Striker Gunvolt is a side-scrolling platform game. The player controls a singl
  3. Missile Dancer won one of the Alternative Awards in this year's Rllmuk GOTY and quite a few of us have been playing it and chatting over in the Shmups thread. I really think it's worth much wider attention. It's dead easy to pick up, not difficult to clear Normal on one credit but got lots of depth to the scoring and loads of challenge if you fancy it. It costs a few quid or something, bugger all, and I'd say it's been totally overlooked. Here's the link to the award post (with a caveat that I nominated it!): It's made by one guy, Terarin, who's done three othe
  4. Couldn't find a thread for this but it's out now and in early access with founder packs available for purchase and a load of free codes knocking about the usual places. Gameplay trailer: Useless CGI trailer: So what you get is a 60fps free to play 3rd person team shooter. It's cross play on all consoles and has great gyro controls on Switch. I do wonder how many of these hero shooters can be sustained but! This one is from the makers of SMITE and Paladins and runs and plays really well, despite some beta jankine
  5. Announced earlier today in Nintendo Direct was Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash ( or Guru-Guru! Chibi-Robo! as it is known in Japan), a new entry in the rarely-revisited series. Unlike previous games, Chibi-Robo is now the star of a pint-sized platformer and can use his cable to whip enemies, break blocks and grapple walls throughout the different side-scrolling stages. Despite the genre switch, Chibi-Robo!: Zip Lash still features elements from previous entries in the series like Chibi-Robo’s constantly draining energy. The game will also release alongside a Chibi-Robo amiibo (!!). Points earned by
  6. I'm going to try something in this thread: Every week I'm going to talk about a single eshop game a bit and see if it starts any conversatiins and maybe even sell you on the game in particular. I'm not going to go for the obvious (Hollow Knight/Into The Breach), but it'll probably be something you've heard of. First up: Voez http://www.nintendo.co.uk/Games/Nintendo-Switch-download-software/VOEZ-1201380.html Price: £18.99 Metacritic: 81% https://www.metacritic.com/game/switch/voez I've spoke about Voez a little bit in here before, b
  7. NX is soon, right? Right? PixelJunk Monsters was great YEARS ago, though. HYRULE WARRIORS DLC mind. YES. From Nintendolife: Wii U eShop PixelJunk Monsters HD (Double Eleven, €8.99 / £6.99) - Originally developed by Q-Games around nine years ago, this title (and the broader PixelJunk series) has been ever-present on PSN (PlayStation Network). Arriving on Wii U is this tower defence entry in which you protect your offspring across 47 different environments. We'll let you know what we think in a review. Wii U DLC Minec
  8. Anyone else downloaded the demo for this? I love games that combine a card game with another genre; Sword & Poker on iOS is a particular favourite of mine and I've been on the lookout for something similar ever since. The demo is lovely, with fun dialogue and several interesting game mechanics, and it's not quite as simple as 'play solitaire, your horse runs'. It's out on 5th May apparently, about £6.
  9. This one got a bit lost amidst all the Nintendo Direct news from last week... A black and white puzzle platformer, with a simple but bold presentation and with a very strong core mechanic: you create boxes in different directions from your, well... box-shaped-hero (Hakoboi actually means litt. ''Box Boy''), to interact with the world and solve puzzles. And you jump. And that's it. It looks so simple at first, and it's the classic game that's difficult to explain by words as is easy to grasps while watching the trailer
  10. The latest Ace Attorney spin-off game, The Great Ace Attorney (Dai Gyakuten Saiban) was just recently released in Japan. But it seems like Capcom aren’t resting on their laurels yet – in fact, the next mainline Ace Attorney game has just been announced! Famitsu revealed that the title will even be playable at Tokyo Game Show later this month (!!). According to the magazine, the game takes place outside of Japan. Phoenix Wright has come to an as yet unnamed country (probably Nepal) for a reason, but he gets involved with another case. Residents of the
  11. Bit of a strange one this game. But the fact that NoE decided to release it over here - albeit only on the eShop - got my attention. Originally released as Attack on Titan: The Last Wings of Mankind in Japan in December 2013, this is an action game developed by Spike Chunsoft for the Nintendo 3DS. It is set to be released this May in North America and Europe under the name Attack on Titan: Humanity in Chains with Atlus being the publisher as a eShop exclusive. The game follows the story of the anime, beginning from the year 845, when the titans first attacked and demolished the walls
  12. Because the announcement thread is unfortunately called RIP Nintendo Nintendos first mobile game is being announced soon The guy heading it up is the guy who did Mario Kart, so people are maybe expecting F-Zero, but also Miyamoto mentioned Pikmin 4 being nearly finished but didn't mention the platform, and it's not like much is coming to Wii U at this point and NX isn't ready, so... Or it could be something completely different and new - speculation!
  13. Just discounts again, albeit a few decent ones. From Nintendolife: Wii U eShop Temporary Discounts SEVERED (Drinkbox Studios, €10.49 / £8.39 until 26th January, normally €14.99 / £11.99) Guacamelee! Super Turbo Championship Edition (Drinkbox Studios, €6.99 / £5.99 until 26th January, normally €13.99 / £11.99) Ittle Dew (Ludosity, €6.99 / £6.29 until 19th January, normally €9.99 / £8.99) OlliOlli (Curve Digital, €1.99 / £1.59 until 19th January, normally €9.99 / £7.99) Pumped BMX+ (Curve Digital, €1.99 / £1.59 until 19th January, normally €9.99 / £7.9
  14. Good week for discounts, and of course Shantae (which is TOMORROW!). Just as well as there's not a lot else! From Nintendolife: Wii U eShop Shantae: Half-Genie Hero (WayForward, €16.99 / £15.99) - WayForward's best-known franchise makes the leap to HD for the first time (outside of re-releases); originally funded on Kickstarter, it's been a long wait for this adventure. A chance to introduce Shantae and company to a new audience, we can expect this one to stick to the core formula as new players get used to hair whipping and transformations brought on by dancing. We'll
  15. Lots on sale, slim pickings for good stuff though. Still, Minecraft Story Mode! For ALMOST THIRTY QUID?! HAHAHahahahahahahhafuckno. From Nintendolife: Wii U eShop Teslapunk (klutzGames, €9.99 / £8.99) - This has the look of an old-school vertical shoot 'em up, as you fight off an invasion from Mars "led by Emperor Zangórax, who back on Mars is a popular DJ by night and a frantic invader by day". Fair enough. It looks rather promising, and beyond a six stage campaign it has a survival mode; we'll blast away for a review. Scribble (Bear Box Media, €2.99 / £2.9
  16. HahahaHAHAHAHahahah no. Well, some reasonable Sonic 3DS discounts, but that's it. From Nintendolife: Wii U eShop Frag doch mal...die Maus! (ASHGAMES, €9.99) - Only given a Euro price and likely targeted at Germany, obviously, this is based on a popular kids TV show in the country. A quiz game that was well received on PC in 2008(!), now it's on Wii U. That's nice. SHOOT THE BALL (RCMADIAX, €1.49 / £1.39) - Previously released on the New 3DS eShop; you use the touch screen to 'shoot' the ball into space, with randomised shapes and colours that set
  17. Ignoring Pokemon, which is a retail release so doesn't really count, it's another shite week. Ah well, Switch'll be here soon enough. From Nintendolife: Wii U eShop Exile's End (XSEED Games, €9.99 / £8.99) - Here's one for those with retro sensibilities; billed as a "cinematic platformer" with Japanese flair, this takes place on "a massive, interconnected laboratory and mining complex on a moody, lonely alien world", and expects the player to solve puzzles and overcome issues using a combination of weapons and other items. It has retro-style visuals and feat
  18. No decent new games. No decent discounts. Load of old shite. Possibly the worst week ever, so just go and buy that Sega 3D Classics from Argos instead. From Nintendolife: Wii U eShop Temporary Discounts Elliot Quest (PlayEveryWare, €11.69 / £8.54 untl 24th November, normally €12.99 / £9.49) Olympia Rising (PlayEveryWare, €4.49 / £4.04 until 24th November, normally €4.99 / £4.49) PixelMaker (Nostatic Software, €2.90 / £2.49 until 17th November, normally €3.49 / £2.99) Word Party (Lightwood Games, €7.99 / £7.49 until 17th November, normally €15.99 / £14.99)
  19. THREE DEE! THREEEEEE DEEEEE! Finally! Although we've had some of them already. Also! F-Zero X and HYRULE WARRIORS!!!!! From Nintendolife: Wii U eShop Twisted Fusion (Leuvsion, €5.00 / £4.00) - This Wii U-exclusive adventure / platformer has been long in the making, having been successfully funded on Kickstarter back in Spring 2014. It utilises the GamePad for a second display for those that want it (but also supports single-screen gaming), and offers a fair bit of freedom in approach, with added extras like monster breeding also included. Keep an eye out for our intervi
  20. When the best thing of the week is a free Sonic 25th Anniversary Theme for the 3DS, you know it ain't a good week. Oh, except Fairune 2 - hopefully that is great! From Nintendolife: Wii U eShop Mr. Pumpkin Adventure (CIRCLE Entertainment, €3.99 / £3.99) - This looks remarkably quirky, and it includes 50 scenes to explore and investigate, with a number of puzzles to tackle. It doesn't seem short of uniqueness and creativity. Solitaire (Sanuk Games, €4.99 / £4.49) - This appears to be exactly as the name suggests, a version of the iconic office time-waster on
  21. Aside from the stand-alone Pokemon Sun/Moon demo, not much new this week. Loads of discounts though! From Nintendolife: Wii U eShop Pirate Pop Plus (13AM Games, €4.49 / £4.09 or free if you own the New 3DS version on the same Nintendo Account) - The title takes inspiration from Mitchell Corp's classic bubble-popping title Pang; with Game Boy-style visuals and an excellent chiptune soundtrack, it certainly looks the part. The gameplay involves popping bubbles and blasting enemies, but at certain points the gravity changes, placing you on the sides of the scre
  22. This week, the only thing worth getting is Chase. But for the sake of completeness, here's the full list from Nintendolife: Wii U eShop Temporary Discounts Another World - 20th Anniversary Edition (Digital Lounge, €3.99 / £3.59 until 27th October, normally €7.99 / £7.19) Never Alone (E-Line Media, €2.99 / £2.59 until 27th October, normally €14.99 / £12.99) Chompy Chomp Chomp Party (Utopian World of Sandwiches, €5.49 / £4.49 until 10th November, normally €10.99 / £8.99) STEEL RIVALS (nuGAME, €4.99 / £4.49 until 13th November, normally €6.99 / £5.99)
  23. More meh than a field of goats. Colour Splash doesn't count. From Nintendolife: Wii U Retail Download Paper Mario: Color Splash (Nintendo, €49.99 / £39.99) - The series finally makes its bow on the Wii U, as Nintendo puts its expertise of HD craft-like visuals to work once again. This one introduces paint as a core mechanic, and otherwise offers a blend of timed button presses and items in battles. We were left impressed after spending time with it for our preview, and will have a review with you before release. Available from 7th October.
  24. Sonic Boom! Sonic Boom! BULLSHEEEEET. Thankfully, some good stuff too. From Nintendolife: Wii U eShop SteamWorld Heist (Image & Form, €19.99 / £14.99) - The follow-up to breakthrough title SteamWorld Dig, this adopts a turn-based 2D strategy approach for the highly stylised steambot IP. A lengthy campaign is delivered along with plenty of weapons and hats, because robots wearing hats are surely irresistible; we loved this in our SteamWorld Heist review for the 3DS eShop, and will take another look at this HD iteration. Available from 30th September. Soul
  25. Not done one of these for a few weeks because 1) I've been busy, and 2) They've been shit. But this week is pretty good. Also, don't forget there were new StreetPass games last week - all 5 are pretty good, so you may as well buy the set, but you can choose either the slot car or the stock market one for free if you're strapped for money - they're both great. And there's a demo of Phoenix Wright too Oh, and a warning about the Sega 3D Classics - those are great games, and great prices BUT! there's a physical medium collection incoming soon so you might want to hold fire. Or buy bot
