Recommended Posts



This week’s Nintendo Download includes the following featured content:

  • Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch
    • Resident Evil 4 – Step into the shoe of Leon S. Kennedy as he shines a light on the grim transformation of a European village while searching for the President’s abducted daughter. Resident Evil 4 introduced an over-the-shoulder camera and responsive action mechanics that continue to influence the series. This version of the game also contains Separate Ways, a scenario that was included in other HD rereleases. The Resident Evil 4 game is available May 21.
    • Resident Evil – Experience the remaster that brought the 1996 horror classic back to life. The original 2002 remaster not only featured reimagined HD environments and characters, but also enhanced vocal performances to create an even more terrifying retelling of the original story. This HD remaster features all of the chilling moments and claustrophobic tension of the original release, and also includes the Wesker’s Report and Wesker’s Report II video features. The Resident Evilgame is available May 21.
    • Resident Evil 0 – Resident Evil 0 details the events aboard the Ecliptic Express, which led up to the Mansion Incident depicted in Resident Evil. This ambitious prequel featured various mechanics that were new to the series, including the partner zapping system, which allows players to switch between the two protagonists on the fly. Wesker Mode lets you experience the game in a different way by introducing series antagonist Albert Wesker as a playable character, complete with his superhuman powers. The Resident Evil 0 game is available May 21.
    • Team Sonic Racing – Team Sonic Racing combines the best elements of arcade and fast-paced competitive-style racing. Face off with friends in intense multiplayer* racing, race together across stunning worlds and work together as a team by sharing power-ups and speed boosts. Take control of your racing style: Choose from three distinct character types and unlock game-changing vehicle customization options to suit your racing style. The Team Sonic Racing game is available May 21.
    • Fortnite – Season 9 – The future is yours in Season 9! In this new Fortnite season, the volcano has erupted and forever changed some long-lasting locations. Grab the squad to explore the bright lights of new attractions like Peely’s Banana Stand and Nugget Hut. Catch a ride and quickly traverse areas by flying in and out of the new Slipstream wind transportation system. Use the new Air Vents to quickly navigate from building to building. You can even take a glide over to the new Mega Mall to do some shopping before the storm hits. A new season also means a new Battle Pass. More than 100 new exclusive rewards are ready for you to unlock, and it still costs the same 950 V-bucks. This season, you’ll get the Sentinel Outfit and Rox progressive Outfit instantly when you purchase the Battle Pass.
  • Nintendo Entertainment System – Nintendo Switch Online**
    • Donkey Kong Jr. – Based on the popular arcade game, Donkey Kong Jr. is the sequel to the immensely successful Donkey Kong game. Play as Donkey Kong’s son, and rescue your dad who has been kidnapped and imprisoned in a cage by Mario. Use jumping and climbing abilities to clamber up vines and chains, gather vital fruit and keys, and open the cage to free your father. Make sure you avoid the pesky birds, nasty electric sparks and creepy chompers. Four different worlds filled with numerous climbing and jumping puzzles await you in this timeless classic.
    • VS. Excitebike – Fans love the Excitebike game for its frenetic races, high stakes and sweet jumps. With this game, you can take it to the next level with the Famicom disk version of VS. Excitebike – complete with two-player split screen. Create tracks from 20 classic Excitebike track parts, and go for a best time or take on friends. Racing is even more exciting when the rivalries are real. You can also try out the single-player mode in VS. Excitebike. It adds tracks, music and the ability to save your high score.
    • Clu Clu Land – The greedy Sea Urchins have stolen all of Clu Clu Land’s gold bars and buried them in a series of mazes. As Bubbles, a brave bubble fish, you’ll set out to uncover all of the gold bars in each maze. With 20 stages to complete and increasingly complex conditions (like having to pass over the gold bars twice to uncover them), you might just want to bring along a friend for help.

Just a heads up: Nintendo Enthusiast reported a game-breaking bug in Blades of Time, forcing them to restart the game approximately four hours in. 


And while we're on that note, don't let the art style fool you! Blades of Time is a sequel to X-Blades. It's just far less anime looking!

Fitting my username, I got Guilty Gear XX.  Been having fun with it; recently got the good endings with Dizzy, Sol and Ky (got Sol's bad ending the first time through Story mode), thus got their EX modes unlocked.  For the most part, I think EX Dizzy is better than Normal Dizzy.


And the girl is at least dressed more like a treasure hunter as opposed to the thong bikini from X-Blades.


BTW, Chrom, you forgot a game, the original Guilty Gear.  That also came to eShop.

Played story mode in portable mode and I am liking the game so far but I think what is hindering me, even if I am getting firsts and all, is on the small screen I think I am mentally missing a lot of the extra details of what needs to be done and how it needs to be done as a team.  In other words my eyes focus down to the track and other stuff becomes oblivious to me.


Of who I can race with so far, I like Sonic's speed but his handling characteristics feel too off for me with the track layouts, Tails is marginally better, but I am thinking Knuckles works best for me and my racing style.

Shadow in that red and  black car is SOOOOOOOOOOOO SWEET....but not as badass at that ALL BLACK OF HIS... ooooooooooooooooooooooohhhhhhhhhh




Story Mode further thoughts:


I don't think the developers did a good job in perspective.  I find the camera angle too deep a lot of the times for the tracks.  Also, on the more graphically intensive or similar coloring backgrounds the blend too much creating a real lack of depth perception.  IMO Mario Kart has a better view and better depth perception on the tracks.


Without putting much time into Shadow / Dark Group or Robotnik's group--just got them-- Amy with some upgrades is my go to right now.


I find it hard to break from my MK expectations with steering, drifting, and response times when racing this game.  I'm basically fighting my nature.


I'm getting more and more familiar with the team dynamics and doing better with teammate help but I do think that while the mechanic makes it unique and stands apart from other Kart racers out there it also goes against a race for yourself thought process.


I really do love the paint editor, lots of designs and lots of color palettes to play with to get your ride right.


Parts are ok so far but I don't have many unlocked yet.


I still swear the rehashed some tracks out of the last Sonic racer but some of the new ones are looking pretty good.
