Thats right another glaring omission to Nintendo's eShop service gets rectified this week with the release of two 3DS demos. Thats right the demo you have all been waiting for Cooking Mama 4 gets released on the eShop this week along with the less requested Resident Evil Revelations Demo
Thats not all of the good news though as over the coming weeks we will also be getting demos of Metal Gear Solid 3D, Mario and Sonic at the London 2012 Olympic Games and Rhythm Thief & the Emperor's Treasure, dates for these are not yet known.
Sound off in the comments below but I am sure no one can be disappointed with this news, look foward to the first set of demos tomorrow.
First off the Cooking Mama Demo is locked to 30 tries, that would be a bad thing if the thing was worth playing more than once. The game seems to have one recipe which is Pizza making and jusy plays like the original games. The 3D is non existant and it really should have just been a DS game or eShop download .
Resident Evil is also limited to 30 tries, looks like this will be common with all demos. That sucks the big one.
I had a Gitaroo man demo for PS2 that I must have played 100 times. The game was really expensive over here for whatever reason and only got it a few years later as a birthday present. I also played the original SSX demo many times and didn't actually purchase an SSX game until Tricky launched. it has been a while though since I played a demo that many times but I do wonder why they have to lock it after 30 plays. Where else does this happen?
There's still no reason to put a limit on this demo though. What do they care if we play it that often? Is anyone seriously going to NOT purchase the game because they can play a demo an unlimited amount of times?
Yeah, 30 play limit is a bit silly. That said, I think the most I've ever played a demo is around 10 times or so (GCN Preview Disc, Viewtiful Joe!).
The Revelations demo is up for US gamers! Be warned though--it requires over 1100 blocks, so you may need to clear up some space (I had to, for the first time). I was under the assumption that 2GB was big enough for the 3DS's lifetime! Guess I'll have to suck it up.
