So, how are you enjoying Splatoon? Like me are you spending every available second of your life splatting ink? It’s looking like it was a huge success based on early sales figures and I didn’t get to talk about it on here because I was on holiday last week. Oh well, I’ll have to be satisfied with this weeks round up of…. stuff.
Don’t Starve: Giant Edition (£12.59/€18.99) – We’ll start this week with the biggest release. Don’t Starve has been out on Steam and Sony consoles for quite some time now but the survival game is finally making its way to Nintendo! In Don’t Starve you are charged with simply surviving in a spooky wilderness world by scavenging supplies, staying in the light and trying not to get killed by monsters. This version of the game also comes with the Giants region expansion which adds a whole host of new features.
FullBlast (£4.40/€4.99 until July 2nd then £5.39/€5.99) – FullBlast is a port from the Ouya and mobile platforms and is a top down shooter. I’m struggling to find anything positive to say about this as it looks fairly generic. It is a decent price for the next few weeks though so if you’re in to these types of games maybe it’s worth a shot.
Wii U Virtual Console
Big Brain Academy (£6.29/€6.99) – Another entry into the DS virtual console library of games. BBA is one of the original brain training games that became so synonymous with the DS in which you complete various mini games that test your noodle and hopefully improve it too.
Unepic – Normally £8.99/€9.99 Now £4.40/€4.99
Lord of Magna: Maiden Heaven (£24.99/€29.99) – LoM is an RPG from the man behind Harvest Moon and actually looks like a fairly decent game. Featuring some really nice Manga cut -scenes and the promise of an in depth story, this absolutely worth a look if you enjoy a good Japanese epic adventure.
This week is a week to forget in terms of releases. However if I had to pick a game out of this collection I’d go with Don’t Starve. I do own it on Steam but would enjoy the chance to play it on my Wii U tablet. Here’s hoping next week has a little more to talk about.
Until then, good afternoon, good evening and good night.
