May continues with a Nintendo Download that's light on quantity of content, but big on quality. Three Kirby titles land on the Wii U Virtual Console, and if you buy two, you get the third free! Three games arrive on the 3DS eShop, including the anticipated Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D on May 24, and there's a 20% sale on The DENPA Men: They Came By Wave. Be sure to check out your favorite digital storefront today (May 23, 2013) for all of this week's Nintendo updates.
Haha, I like Nate's endorsement of Dream Course and Guillaume's response to next week's selection.
I have Dream Course on the Wii VC and I just can't get the hang of its gameplay, try as I might. I think as far as non-traditional Kirby goes, Canvas Curse, Epic Yarn, Air Ride, and Mass Attack are probably my picks, while Super Star, Adventure, and RtDL are choice traditional games.
@TriforceBun Dream Course could definitely be more intuitive. But once you get the hang of it, it's so good. Easiliy my favorite Kirby spinoff and definitely in my top 5 SNES games, maybe even above Super Star.
@Anand I wish I had a GBA SP so I could play Tilt 'n Tumble with a backlight. I tried once on a GBC and couldn't see a thing. The GBA/GCN Tilt 'n Tumble tech demo also looked really neat...too bad nothing came of that.
I certainly agree. I downloaded the game on Wii when it released (even though my SNES copy is around here somewhere), and it took me a bit to get the hang of it again. However, once I did I was hooked. It is, so good! Though, for nostalgic reasons, I think Kirby's Pinball Land gets my vote for the best Kirby spinoff. Dream Coarse, though, is probably the best and most curious one, as it's one I never would have thought of, but one that works so well.
@nate38 I actually preferred the reflective TFT screens to the backlit ones. Those screens showed BRILLIANT, VIVID colour when you played outside, like while riding on the bus during the day.
Now, with the trend being towards more backlit screens, I can't play my portable system unless I'm hiding from the sun like a vampire, as any light hitting the screen washes out the graphics, making me say "They might as well have made this for the Wii[U] instead!"
