The month of February wraps up with a good week of downloadables from Nintendo on the February 28, 2013 edition of the North American Nintendo Download! The highly anticipated Runner2 arrived on the Wii U eShop on Tuesday, and a demo will be made available today as well. The 3DS eShop gets a demo for next week's Castlevania: Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate as well as two new eShop titles and a DSiWare title, and WiiWare finally receives Retro City Rampage with its exclusive mode: ROM City Rampage. Also be sure to check out Fractured Soul for 3DS while it's on sale. There's plenty to see, so be sure to stop by your favorite digital storefront at noon ET to see all of this week's updates!
What are RCR's biggest flaws? Strengths? I was turned off by reading impressions a while ago, but I'm still curious.
Strengths: Open-world is compact but fun to explore Controls and settings are highly customizable and work well (dual analog shooting mode is a big plus, not sure what hte Wii version's controls are like) Game has decent mission variety in the story path and in optional activities
Weaknesses: Parodies everywhere, most of them lame, but at least they don't last long Last bunch of story missions are frustrating
All in all, mostly good, a little bad, nothing too great.
Wow... Retro City Rampage actually released? I have been anticipating this game, reading about this game, and wondering about this game for years. Perhaps the longest of any game (at least the longest of any game I have had a mild interest/curiosity in). And now that it's out (and I realize that it's been out for a while on other consoles), I'm questioning its worthiness. I'm still happy it finally hit the Wii Shop Channel, though!
Castlevania demo was good, not great. It definitely needs a bit more but I assume there's a whole lot more to the game just like any other Metroidvania.
Something I found funny was the first note left by some adventurer. It says (very paraphrased): "The monster shattered arm and then my shield. I will be killed by the third blow." Soooooooooooooooooooooo..........when exactly did he write this note?????????????
