Stuck at home with nothing new to play? Fret not, Atlus is here to save your day (and wallet)! You can buy select Nintendo 3DS Atlus titles at a discounted price until August 31st on the eShop so now is the best time to catch up on your backlog.

Code of Princess drops to $19.99 from its usual price of $29.99. This is great for side scrolling action fans who are on a roll from the recent hit Dragon’s Crown.

If you’re more into Shin Megami Tensei, Soul Hackers is also on sale for $29.99. This is a remake of the 1997 game optimized for the 3DS so get it if you passed before.

Finally, we have Etrian Odyssey IV, also for $29.99. I bought it months ago but still remains in its sealed packet so this makes me sad.

See? No more excuse for you to be bored this day even if you’re at home! Stay dry and safe, guys. Spend the time off with your 3DS instead of going out.

Hey Nintendo folks! We’ve got new(ish) games in this week’s Nintendo eShop update!

Wii U is still stockpiling on classic games via the Virtual Console. This week sees the release of Galaga ($4.99), a classic shoot-’em-up that weaned us back in the 80’s before we moved on to classier shmups and bullet hell games. What was your favorite?

Speaking of shooters, well… Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist is also now on the Wii U with new controller-specific functions exclusively for the Gamepad. Release date is on August 20th and it can be had for $59.99.

Discounted games Trine 2: Director’s Cut is available for $7.99 until September 5th from its original price of $19.99, and BIT.TRIP Presents RUNNER 2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien is going for $11.25 (from $14.99) until August 29. Also, BIT.TRIP has a new DLC for $3 which features six new playable characters so you might want to throw that in if you’re planning to buy the game.

As for the 3DS, you can get Heavy Fire: Black Arms 3D ($4.99, originally released for WiiWare) if you’re into shooters (is it shooter week for Nintendo or something), and then there’s the 10-in-1 Arcade Collection which reminds me of those shady cartridges everybody owned back then for the NES. It’s going for only $2.99 so maybe it’s a good deal for retro fans?

Retail releases for Barbie Groom and Glam Pups and My Western Horse 3D (both at $29.99) which I will refuse to talk about, because principles.

Speaking of retro, Donkey Kong is now available for the 3DS Virtual Console collection for the usual price of $4.99.

Nothing to pick up this week, so I guess I’ll go back to Hydeland and try to beat Infernal this week. What about you?

Got the $30 eShop credits from registering your Shin Megami Tensei IV and Fire Emblem: Awakening codes in Club Nintendo? Here, let me help you spend it!

Wii U

  • Virtual Console library is getting bigger each week. This week marks the release of SNES classic Kid Icarus for your current gen Nintendo console… /cry. Get it for the usual $4.99.

3DS

  • Chain Blaster is available at $6.99, or you can get the demo first to see if it’s something to your liking.
  • Angler’s Club: Ultimate Bass Fishing 3D is available for $29.99.
  • Picross e2 can be had for $5.99.
  • Cute Witch! Runner is on the Nintendo DSi for $1.99.

Zzzz… On second thought, keep the $30 and just add a few more bucks to get Phoenix Wright Dual Destinies or something. Or maybe spend it on Megaman 1-6 like I did.

The Nintendo eShop post is back! Did you miss it from its absence last week? Awww.

Here’s what’s hitting the shop this week!

Nintendo 3DS:

  • Super Mario Bros. 2 hits the virtual console at the basic VC games price of $4.99.
  • All Fatlus friends have waited for Shin Megami Tensei IV and it will be ready for your download on July 16 at $49.99. Check out our early review here if you haven’t yet!

It’s heeeerrrreeee….

Wii U:

  • Metroid and Donkey Kong for the virtual console are up, both at $4.99 each.
  • Star Wars Pinball is already available at $9.99, so go hit some balls.

No brainer for this week, especially if you’re into RPGs. Take note that you can get $30 worth of eShop credits if you register both Shin Megami Tensei IV and Fire Emblem: Awakening. Pick it up if you haven’t yet!

What’s up Nintendo folks! Finally, we see a major release for the Wii U this week. Read below to find out what else is new aside from the green cap.

Wii U:

  • Download version for Super Luigi U is now available in the eShop. Retail version is going to be available on August 25th in North America. Why? We don’t know! Good news though; buy it now and you’ll earn double coins in your Club Nintendo account. Also, you can earn more with the game survey questionnaire until August 1st, so it probably is a sweet deal… maybe.
  • I said I would buy a Wii U for this game but alas, no price cut announcement yet. Game and Wario is available for digital download on Sunday (probably Monday here in the Philippines), June 23rd.
  • Sale stuff! Little Inferno at $4.99 until the 26th!
  • Virtual Console releases: Mario Bros., Wrecking Crew (two of my favorite NES games) are up. Couple it with the $0.99 Yoshi game and you have a solid retro gaming night right there.

Nintendo 3DS:

  • The guys here are bummed that Project X Zone got a retail release while Phoenix Wright Dual Destinies is still fighting for its life. Well, I’m still excited so whatever guys! Have you reserved your copy yet? We’ll see it on the shelves this June 25th (Wednesday)
  • There’s also LEGO Legends of Chima: Laval’s Journey for the kids, also on the 25th.
  • Super Little Acorns 3D Turbo for only $3.99 until July 8th!
  • There’s the second Guild02 game, BUGS vs. TANKS! and this gets my buy for the week.
  • New release: Farming Simulator 3D
  • Virtual Console releases: Defenders of Oasis, Megaman 6, Sonic Blast, and Tails Adventure
  • DSi Ware release: Rhythm Core Alpha 2

I am completing the Guild02 games although they will probably go on sale like the first set :( But whatever! Going to split some playtime on BUGS vs. TANKS! and Animal Crossing: New Leaf this weekend.

Greetings, Ninty folks! Looks like it’s going to be a pretty busy month for the Big N, what with Animal Crossing: New Leaf dropping in a few days! For now, let’s see what they cooked for us this week.

Wii U:

  • One of my favorite matching games on the Gameboy, Yoshi enters the Virtual Console fray, wooo!
  • Another retro adventure title, Spelunker, struts its way out of caves to the VC.
  • Trine 2: Director’s Cut is on sale for $9.99, if you passed on this sidescrolling game during its release. The sale will be until June 27th.
  • Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth, now at $29.99, if you have the urge to battle for earth.

3DS:

animal_crossing_new_leaf_logo

  • Everyone’s probably heard of Animal Crossing: New Leaf and has held on to their money to plonk on DataBlitz once it arrives on June 9th, so no more introduction is necessary. If you ran out of copies and have 6,000 blocks in your micro SD card to spare, you can download it via the eShop.

Wii:

  • Sengoku 3 graces the Virtual Console, so I guess you can still keep your Wii plugged or whatever.

I guess you know what I’ll be getting this week. See you in the village!

Omy. Three classic Kirby games have found its way to the Wii U for this week’s eShop update.

Wii U:

  • Kirby’s Dream Land
  • Kirby’s Dream Course
  • Kirby Superstar are all released in the Virtual Console. If you buy two of the games, you get the other one for free until May 30th.

3DS:

  • Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D is now revamped to fit the 3DS’s glorious double screens, plus there’s additional eight new levels which you will not find in the Wii version.
  • THE “DENPA” MEN: They Came By Wave is on 20% off so I guess now’s a good time to find out who these Denpa men are and why did they come by wave.
  • Naruto Powerful Shippuden is now available in the eShop as digital download
  • Groove Heaven, which I might try playing because I’m a sucker for rhythm games, is also now available in the eShop.

So, what do we say to Nintendo? Not today.

This week on the Nintendo eShop saga! Is the Wii U still going straight to the shitter?

Wii U:

  • Super Metroid is at $0.30 until the Philippine Independence Day. That is super cheap, so might as well get your Wii U’s ass working with a classic game.
  • LEGO Batman 2: DC Superheroes will be available on May 21, as well as
  • Resident Evil Revelations that you can also pick up in other platforms.

So yes, still pretty much dead.

Glorious 3DS gets the following:

  • Mega Man 5 for $4.99, in case you want to replay a retro goodie
  • Harvest Moon for $4.99 is out as well!
  • Swords and Soldiers 3D from Circle Entertainment is available at $6.99.  You can also catch our two Circle game reviews here and here.
  • First up on the Guild02 series is The Starship Damrey by Level-5 at $7.99.
  • Bowling Bonanza 3D at $5.99, if you’re into that sort of thing, and
  • Dress to Play: Magic Bubbles zzzz (oh, at $3.99)

Wii:

  • King of Fighters ’99 at 900 Wii Points

DSiWare:

  • California Super Sports is at $4.99

This week’s pick for me will be The Starship Damrey, definitely! I will probably review it, if none of the lazy staffers get dibs, so look forward to it!

Publisher Dream is a micro management game from Circle Entertainment Ltd. which came out last week under the DSiWare section of the Nintendo eShop. Being that I’m obsessed with these types of games, I immediately jumped on the chance to review this title!

You play as Triangle, a struggling game developer and publisher trying to make it big in the game industry. You start small with a few employees making budget games until you get to sell more copies in the ‘cshop’ (which I’m assuming is a nod to the game’s publisher), expand your office, hire more staff and eventually develop bigger games and increase your fame worldwide as a bona fide quality game developer.

pd1

Good Points:

  • Clear-cut goals. The main objective of Publisher Dream is to stay in the green for the next nine years of your company’s life as a game publisher. That’s literally your only goal. There are milestones and achievements that will guide you on what you need to accomplish so you can unlock more rewards, but they are all secondary.
  • Simplified game mechanics. The game has a very straightforward manual that explains all the things that you need to keep tabs of to develop and publish a game. The interface is clean and easy to use; you just tap it from below and a bar with all the functions appear for you to tinker with.
  • Very addictive. I found myself tapping away on my 3DS for extended amounts of time without realizing that I have played the game for more than three hours already. It’s probably because of the fast-paced work week (everything moves in hyperspeed) and seeing the progress bars of the games you are developing move towards the release date makes it very fulfilling (just one more month…)
  • Good price point. At just $1.99, the game can net you about five to six hours of fun.

Bad Points:

  • Localization. Circle could have improved on the translation and localization of the game as you can spot some grammatical errors in the game’s system messages.
  • A lot of things are not explained.  An example is the acronym of the game genres that you are trying to develop. To a non-gamer, this could be a cause for struggle as they might not know what STG or FPS might mean. This is minor, but they could have expounded on this so that the player may have a better feel of what games they are developing or publishing. There are also some icons in the game that did not have any explanations so you will just have to guess what they mean and take it into context.
  • The game can be quite unforgiving as you are not given slack to correct your mistakes. You pay your expenses monthly but only get paid every quarter so you have to balance things out. If you have hired a lot of staff and you are already bleeding money by not producing games that sell, there is no way to cut your losses (i.e. restructure your team or sell assets), so you need to be really careful by keeping tabs on your capital and expenses. And this ties to…
  • You can only have one save file. The game saves every week (which happens after a day of work in the game, starting from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM) and will overwrite your previous week’s state. You cannot save manually so you cannot have a previous save file to go back to if things turn sour in your game.
  • Rewards are not satisfying. You just get a system message – no celebratory jumping of sprites, hyper music or anything.

Things That Can Swing Either Way:

  • Art style. I am in favor of bit-styled art because I grew up in this era of gaming so this is definitely a plus for me but I can see how some people may not appreciate this, especially younger gamers.
  • There’s really no point to watching the staff come in and out of the office, as it tends to get repetitive. But hey, it’s fun to watch them play the arcade or pet the office cat every once in a while.
  • Low replay value. This is a positive point to some people as they prefer to move on once they finish a game, but there’s really no reason to play this game again unless you want to win the Game of the Year award, which does not really give you anything other than bonus capital.

All in all, if you want a good time waster whether you’re commuting to or from work, waiting for your coffee, or have a few minutes to spare to play, Publisher Dream is a good title to spend time with. At just $1.99 on the Nintendo eShop, it is a pretty sweet deal as it costs just as much as your average smartphone game. At the very least, you get a feel of how game companies develop and publish a game (at a shallow level, of course) and get an insight of what happens during a game’s production cycle.

Thank you to Circle Entertainment Ltd. for providing 30lives with a review code of the game.

You may have noticed that there is a running gag among the 30lives staff about Nintendo being doomed. We’re just playing, guys. Looks like the Big N is slowly bringing out the firepower as Mario and Donkey Kong: Minis on the Move is out along with more awesome titles!

Wii U:

  • Chasing Aurora is half off so might as well beef up your console library with it.
  • Two new Virtual Console games are out! Xevious is out for $4.99, so if you’re into retro scrolling shooter games like me, you should not miss this!
  • Solomon’s Key is at $4.99.

Resident Evil Revelations demo will go live on May 14.

3DS:

  • Mario and Donkey Kong: Minis on the Move is at $9.99. I got excited about this game when I first saw it presented by Mr. Satoru Iwata in Nintendo Direct!
  • SpeedX 3D Hyper Edition is at $2.99.

DSiWare

  • Publisher’s Dream becomes available at a very reasonable $1.99.  I have played this like mad for the past few hours as developer Circle Entertainment, Ltd. gave me a review code of the game. Please look forward to my review in the next few days!

Aaaand that’s it! Plenty of new releases this week so we still love you, Nintendo. Don’t worry. *hug*

Own a 3DS? Want some cheap, quality games to play with? You’re in luck! Level-5, makers of truly awesome games like Ni no Kuni, Dragon Quest 8, and Jeanne D’Arc, is discounting their Guild01 games on the Nintendo eShop.  Starting today April 18th (in the US) until May 30, you can enjoy the following games in dirt cheap prices:

  • Shoot-em-up game Liberation Maiden can now be bought for $4.99
  • Aero Porter, a sim airport game, is now at $2.99
  • And for all D&D freaks out there, Crimson Shroud is now only at $4.99

There’s a mysterious black box floating around in Level-5’s website which we only hope will herald the Guild02 games release in North America soon.  Keep your fingers crossed!

Thanks to reader Miguel for correcting me on the release date.

I recently had the chance to test out a console that’s making a lot of PR noise since it was announced on Kickstarter last year: the Ouya.  Pronounced similarly to “ooh-yeah,” the Android-driven console will be released commercially this June, but Kickstarter backers and attendees of the Game Developer’s Conference (GDC) last month were given first dibs in test-driving the console.  So, does it live up to the hype? We’ll find out shortly!

The packaging is simple – kinda reminds me of a Nike shoebox for some reason.

IMG_3293

Inside the box, you see a simple Thank You message card for believing in the project.  I didn’t plonk down $99 for this; but yeah, I guess thank you Kickstarter people. Ed. Note: I actually did the first day the Kickstarter launched and have yet to receive my console. Screw you, Cheena!

IMG_3295

Beneath the message card is the controller and the console unit.

IMG_3296

All the box’ contents: the controller, Ouya, HDMI cable, adapter, 2 AA batteries and a manual.  Actually, it’s not even a manual: it’s a pamphlet containing safety information for each country or something.  Good thing that Boxer8 included cables and controller batteries in the package so you don’t have to rummage for some in your stash.

IMG_3297

The Ouya console is pretty small.  It kinda reminds me of a Chinese take out box or a bowl.  It’s in glossy gray and the finish is pretty good for a budget console.  It also has engravings of people’s names and usernames at the side face of the console.  I don’t really know what that is, but I’m guessing they are the biggest contributors that helped realize the Ouya project.

IMG_3299

These are the ports.  There’s one for USB, LAN cable, adapter and HDMI.  Apologies for not capturing it clearly.

IMG_3304

Then there’s the controller.  Although the front face looks good and comes in a good shade of matted gray, the shoulder buttons feel cheap and plastic-y.  The analog sticks feel kinda stiff and hard to move around.  If that wasn’t bad enough, the worst problem with it is the Home button.  It doesn’t really respond that well if you push it lightly as compared to say, the PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 controllers.  When you push it down harder than usual, the button physically submerges below the controller plate and falls out-of-place.  It really is a pain to have to babysit and adjust it every time.

What they did right here is the trackpad.  The positioning is easy to access as it is that black slab in the middle of the controller, so you can just readjust your thumb to use it.  I’m not so sure if you can adjust the sensitivity right now, but I’m just glad that it works and it works okay.

IMG_3308

You put in the batteries by removing the plates on the left and right sides of the controller, which reveal the battery slots. I feel queasy about this setup because the faceplates feel really fragile, so it’s kind of unnerving to pull them out from the slots above. How hard is it to put a slot in the back for batteries? :fantasia2

IMG_3313

The Ouya’s user interface is simple, clean and looks appealing. At least they win points here.

interface

After setting the console up, it’ll first ask you to update your system. After connecting it to either Wi-Fi or ethernet, the updater will launch and attempt to download the latest version of the Ouya system software. The download bar kind of reminds me of The Sims where weird messages tell you what it’s doing (i.e., “Reticulating splines”), but in a cornier way (“Sharpening skates…” :what).

After that initial setup hump, the console reboots. After launching (which takes abotu a minute), it will then ask you if you want to register for an Ouya account, or log in as an existing user.  The sign up process is pretty easy as it will just ask your username, e-mail address (where they can send receipts for purchases) and password.

After logging in, you will see the main dashboard.  The interface presents you with four menu items:

  • PLAY – where all your downloaded games are listed
  • DISCOVER – the marketplace where you can download games
  • MAKE – for developers; didn’t really spend much time here
  • MANAGE – where you can manage your account and do system reset, etc.

Now, on to the meaty part – the games.  Actually, I can’t even call it meaty as it only has about 100 games on launch.  And honestly, the games that you can download at the moment are pretty sad.  I’ve tried downloading a few and the only game that was half-decent was Knightmare Tower (which was fairly similar to Castle Crashers on XBLA/PSN).  I also downloaded one of the system’s flagship titles, Final Fantasy III.  It was a joke, seriously.  I don’t even know anyone who would purchase this for $15.00.  The port looks weird: I don’t know if it was my TV, but dialog and message boxes were clipped, and the game just simply didn’t run as smoothly as I expected.

The only interesting thing about the Ouya right now is EMUya, which is an nice take on standard 8-bit console emulators. It also works as a storefront for indie NES games (yes, they still make NES/Famicom games!) such as Battle Kid. Then again, you can always run emulators on so many devices you already have: your PC, DS, PSP, Game Boy Micro, phones, and tablets already have very good emulators out there, so this wouldn’t be such a compelling feature.

I have a hard time recommending an Ouya to anybody.  The system’s main feature is letting players enjoy Android games on the TV. But why? Aren’t most Android experiences geared towards quick, simple experiences since you’re playing them on the go on your tablets and smartphones? Another selling point of the system is that it’s an Android device with a controller (instead of a touchscreen); but that’s still a moot point given that you can use any Bluetooth controller (i.e., a Wii Remote or a Dual Shock 3) on your tablet or mobile phone. Even if Ouya developers start making games geared towards the system’s strengths as a console—lengthier, more robust experiences—is there even demand for that? I really am not sure what to make of this; but at least it’s really cheap. Maybe the Ouya can serve as a transitional point for graduating midcore gamers (Ed. Note: yes, that’s a word now… I had to look it up) who mostly play cheap smartphone/tablet/browser games? Or, perhaps it can be your kid’s “first console,” if only to kick them off your tablets? I don’t know; at the very least it’s dirt-cheap compared to one of the “big three” consoles.

For now, I would suggest holding on to your $99, wait and see how many developers support the platform.  The current content lineup isn’t that compelling and again, most of these games can be bought on your Android-powered gadgets anyway.  Until Ouya has some good, exclusive games that would help them move units, there’s really no point in getting it right now.
