Summer Savings sale

 

Nintendo has kicked off another Summer Savings sale on the North America Wii U and 3DS eShops. The savings may not be quite as good as you’d see in something like a Steam sale, but it’s still better than full price. This is especially true for any games that you find to be a touch overpriced in the first place! A few notable inclusions in the 3DS lineup for the sale are The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds and Super Mario 3D World. Nintendo’s latest “Summer Savings” sale runs until 8:59 AM PT / 11:59 AM ET on September 1st.

About Michael Fontanini

Michael is a veteran gamer in his late 30s, who grew up around video games, with fond memories of the oldies like the NES, SNES, and N64 among others. He loves Nintendo, but also plays a lot of games on his PC. Michael also enjoys going for walks/bike rides, loves animals, and enjoys thunderstorms (and science in general).

Michael is also a computer programmer. This started with a toy he got as a kid called Pre-Computer 1000 that was made by V-Tech. It had a simple programming mode (a bare-bones version of BASIC) which is what started him down the road of being a programmer! Michael can program in BASIC, Visual Basic, C++, C#, and is familiar with Java and Lua Script.

Putting programming and gaming together, Michael became a hobbyist game developer, which may give him some good insights on game development! Most recently, he has been playing with the Unity 3D game engine (a powerful and easy-to-use engine) and learning 3D modelling in Blender.

I love Nintendo but I also play a lot of game's on PC, many of which are on steam. My favorite Nintendo game's include Zelda, Metroid, and Smash Bros to name a few. On PC I love the Half-Life games, as well as most all of the Source Engine games just to name a few.
