*closes front door* Hey there, Nintendo fans! Sorry for the late article, but I just got back home after being out shopping all day today, decked out in my oh so festive Binding of Isaac ugly Xmas sweater! Didn’t want to forget about the Nintendo Download for this week, so I managed to rush home before the traffic got too nasty. There are a few great games to share this week, and a more robust than usual number of sexy sales. So since this is late, let’s get to the good stuff already!

Nintendo Download | Half-Genie Hero

First and most importantly, Shantae Half-Genie Hero is finally out on the Wii U, and I know that wait has been painful for those of you who didn’t back it. Rest assured, the latest outing is worth the wait, as my review discusses. After all, few things are more pleasant than using a bellydancing genie to beat the tar out of pirates! Also new to the Virtual Console this week is the release of Mario Party 2. This N64 sequel was a lot of fun, at least when it wasn’t rigging the die rolls in the computer’s favor. Still, not a bad game to pick up for nostalgic fans of the series.

Nintendo Download | Mario Party 2

Yee Haw, said the Italian plumber…

What is far more important this week are the sheer volume of great games on sale! Not the usual fare where 90% is shovelware and 10% is good, this week a ton of quality digital games are on sale, and I’ll be listing the best of the best alphabetically below, along with the console it’s for. This also helps compensate for the fact that none of the new games released this week are really worth mention.
