I know, I know, it’s Thanksgiving. But that just means you’re waiting on food in most cases, so there’s no reason you can’t sit and read the Nintendo Download today! This one is stuffed with games, including the usual stuff, some new fancy Cyber Deal sales, new wallpaper and more. So let’s loosen our wallets and get ready for some new gaming.
I admit This War of Mine: Complete Edition isn’t our usual fare at oprainfall, but having played it a few years back at PAX, I can attest it’s not the usual war game. This one is far from a military FPS, it’s more of a point and click adventure. It involves resource management and risky choices, so if you like that sort of thing, you should check it out in a few days. For a game that’s more suited for our audience, you might enjoy Nidhogg 2. This frenetic multiplayer game is out today, and has you painting the walls red with the blood of your foes. But that’s not all today, let’s check out some savings next.
From today until November 28th, Nintendo is offering some Cyber Deal savings. That means up to 50% off games for 3DS and Switch. You can buy them on the Nintendo site or via the eShop, and doing so earns you Gold Points for My Nintendo. So you’ll do well either way. There’s a lot of games offered from multiple genres, but here are some of the ones that stood out to me – Ocarina of Time 3D, Final Fantasy XV Pocket Edition HD, Virtue’s Last Reward, Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon, Dead Cells, Undertale, Celeste, Persona Q, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle Gold Edition, Okami HD, Bastion, Dillon’s Dead-Heat Breakers, The Messenger, BOXBOY!, BOXBOXBOY!, Hyper Light Drifter, SteamWorld Heist, Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology, Disgaea 5 Complete and much more. To see all the Cyber Deal sales, just click here.
Hope you’re still ready for savings, cause here’s some to check out from the Game Guide. For simple fun, you might enjoy Gem Crash (Switch) for $3.99; for an atmospheric platformer, there’s Pinstripe (Switch) for $11.24; fans of classic SHMUPs might enjoy Sega Ages: Lightning Force: Quest for the Darkstar (Switch) for $5.99; for a colorful game, there’s Next Up Hero (Switch) half off for $9.99; for something delightfully deranged, there’s Chicken Assassin: Reloaded (Switch) for $6.39; if you enjoy puzzle platforming, you might appreciate Grave Danger (Switch) for $15.99; or for a twisted tale, there’s Inside (Switch) for $12.99; for a insane Western, look no further than West of Loathing (Switch) for $9.79; to blast robots to pieces, just try Mecha Storm (Switch) for $11.99; for a great platforming adventure, you should try Nihilumbra (Switch) for $2.39; for cowboy mayhem, try Wild Guns Reloaded (Switch) for $9.99; for a rotund adventure, you can try Sally’s Law (Switch) for $7.79; for twin stick fun, try Crimsonland (Switch) for $6.99; to get old school, try River City: Rival Showdown (3DS) for $14.99; for a classic styled RPG, there is Bonds of the Skies (3DS) for $5.99; for two great games for the price of one, try Azure Striker Gunvolt: Striker Pack (Switch) for $19.99; or for a speedy hedgehog, try Sonic Mania (Switch) for $14.99; to blast your way to freedom, you might like GoNNER (Switch) for the low price of $4.99; or if you need more River City, try River City: Knights of Justice (3DS) for $7.49; if you like hard as nails platformers, try Mighty Gunvolt Burst (3DS and Switch) for $4.99; you might also enjoy River City: Tokyo Rumble (3DS) for $14.99; if you somehow haven’t played it yet, try Axiom Verge (Wii U) for $9.99; and finally, for more puzzle gaming, you might enjoy Tetris Ultimate (3DS) for $9.99.

Finally, let’s close out this heaping helping of gaming with some new digital games. The only ones worth checking out next week are 99Vidas – Definitive Edition and R-Type Dimensions EX, both coming to the Nintendo Switch. Everything else is out today or tomorrow. For retro fun, there’s ACA NEOGEO Stakes Winner 2 and Arcade Archives Atomic Robo-Kid. To get your puzzle on, try one of the following – Battery Jam or Steamburg. For some intense platforming, there’s kuso and Ms. Splosion Man. If you want some bloody fun, get ready to Party Hard. And lastly, if you want a hard as nails SHMUP, try out Super Hydorah.
Hope everybody has a relaxing day today, full of food and gaming. Tune back in to oprainfall next week for the latest Nintendo Download, and be sure to let us know what games you’re planning on getting on sale!
