Howdy, guys and gals! Would have been here earlier, but I was busy working on a review. If you follow my Twitter account, @SpeerofD3stiny, you probably noticed one of my trademark sporadic screenshot dumps for a game called KUNAI. You can find out more details when my review hits soon, but long story short, that is part of why I got to today’s Nintendo Download later than expected. That said, the first Nintendo Download of February is a bit short, only having two featured titles, but there’s still some sales and a good amount of digital goodies. Let’s start with what may be the first game I’ll end up playing from CD PROJEKT RED.
I’m not a big fan of open world anything. That’s why I have yet to get close to beating Breath of the Wild, and why I usually refrain from playing series like Skyrim. That said, I have always found the lore and style of The Witcher universe compelling. That’s part of why I recently added the Netflix series to my queue, and also why this next game is more than a bit intriguing. See, while I don’t love open world games, I do like more traditional RPG experiences. And Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales is a mix of a old school RPG, puzzles and card game mechanics. Which all sounds fantastic, at least to me. But that’s not the only featured title for today’s Nintendo Download. We also have the very quirky looking Knights and Bikes. I’m not quite sure what genre the game is, but it apparently involves a pair of friends and their pet, Captain Honkers, exploring an ancient island. Which really doesn’t tell me much of anything, but hopefully it helps inform you kind folks. Oh and it’s also by Double Fine, so that might tell you more. Now let’s continue with some sales courtesy of the Game Guide.
First off, if you love retro and like bargains, you might wanna jump on the Oniken: Unstoppable Edition & Odallus the Dark Call Bundle for only $4.99; for something utterly strange, check out Roombo: First Blood for $3.99; for a crazy adventure, try STEINS;GATE 0 for $20.99; or if you need more, try STEINS;GATE: My Darling’s Embrace for $20.99; to explore a fantasy realm with friends, try Children of Morta for $15.39; to enjoy a steep discount, try Rimelands: Hammer of Thor for $2.49; if you like absurd titles, try YU-NO: A girl who chants love at the bound of this world. for $29.99; for some sci-fi fun, check out AI: THE SOMNIUM FILES for $35.99; to soar through the prehistoric, try Jet Kave Adventure for $13.99; for a cheap little SHMUP, try Q-YO Blaster for $0.99; if you wanted more from Spike Chunsoft, try STEINS;GATE ELITE for $23.99; for the thrifty minded, you might enjoy A Ch’ti Bundle for $4.79; or to lucha against fate, try Guacamelee! 2 for $9.99; and lastly, for another amazing discount, try Toby: The Secret Mine for only $0.99.
