That's a lot of big games. FAST, SteamWorld Heist and Terraria!

Devil's Third in the "Also new this week" category is kind of hilarious. Though really, they should do away with that category entirely. It has to be insulting for devs knowing they don't even deserve a write up

Aww, SteamWorld Heist is $2 more than what I currently have available. I will have to wait until I get more funds.

@Abdooooo

It's 3$ off at launch until December 31st but I'm guessing that's the price you went off of.

Tempted by Heist. I really enjoyed Dig and I think the team behind those games presents themselves well (just check out their release letter to fans upon Heist's launch), but I'm slightly concerned I won't enjoy the gameplay much. Let me know how the game is, NW!

Now imagine if you could play all these games on a single console.... I mean, I wanna play Heist.

Xmas party tonight so I can't even really play FAST tonight. Just my luck.

It sounds like Devil's Third earned its stealth release, at least going by everybody claiming this game makes your life worse.

My review went live yesterday! Give it a read here. Though perhaps you're looking for the collective NW opinions. I'm excited for those too.

@carlosrox

At least Heist is coming to Wii U next year. Hopefully sooner than better.

Wow. FAST Racing Neo sounds and looks pretty amazing, and especially considering it's a 600 meg game. Unbelievable. It plays so well too! The controls feel much tighter than the old game, and the course designs are so damn good so far! It's F-Zero and Wipeout with a dash of Mario Kart stage gimmicks thrown in. The AI feels a bit rubberbandy, but that's biggest complaint I have now, one and a half cups in.

I know, right? I was hoping Shin'en would release FAST: Racing Neo on 3DS, or at least port over the WiiWare FAST: Racing League to 3DS eShop. Oh well!

Also of note: Renegade Kid's Dementium: ReMastered is available now, too! Check it out, horror/FPS fans.

If you dare!

@DrFinkelstein

Thanks! I'm starting to think I should put some money towards these guys instead of Nintendo/Jupiter (who're tryin' to milk me with Pokemon Picross)...

It's 600mbs? I thought that info was wrong and it's over a gig.

@carlosrox
It requires over a gig while downloading and installing, but I think the final size is around 600 megs. Can double check in a little bit before I turn off my Wii U.

EDIT: FAST Racing NEO takes up a whopping 557 MB on my external drive.

Wow, what a packed week! What an inadvisably packed week!

But it's cool. I picked up FAST already. I'll grab Steamworld Heist as soon as I buy some more Photos With Mario cards!

(The rational thing to do would be to wait for a sale, but whatever. I can throw the devs some extra scrilla.)
