New weekly post! Each week we recap our posts and check out some news stories that piqued our interests.
Game & Read posts this week –
Now, here’s the news that caught our eye this week –
Dark Souls 3, Ratchet & Clank out on PS4: Both have been reviewing well and high up on my “buy when I have extra cash” list. Ratchet & Clank also has a movie coming out at the end of the month, but I have a feeling it may not live up to the games high reviews.
Nintendo has a sale: Nintendo is notorious for keeping their prices very close to their original price. However, the eShop will occasionally have a pretty nice sale. If you have missed some of these games, now may be the time to pounce. We recommend Mario Kart 7 (3DS), Mario Kart 8 (WiiU), SteamWorld Dig (Both), & Shin Megami Tensei IV (3DS).
Miitomo is successful: This may not be too surprising to some, but I was a little nervous about how financially successful Nintendo’s first mobile app would be. It’s not a proper game, and while it incorporates the very recognizable Mii creation, it lacks the support of beloved Nintendo characters. If this success continues, I thinkNintendo will be able to create new and unusual apps/games.
Have a happy weekend!
