Nintendo DLC: Plenty of sports and a little pottery

1:30 PM on 07.05.2012 // Dale North

I'm kidding on the LOL part. Kind of. I'm not into sports, but videogame sports are fine by me, especially when it comes to golf. Baseball and Tennis are great, too. And maybe pottery making? :

NES Open Tournament Golf ($4.99 on 3DS) is quite fun. Despite being an 8-bit game, it still holds up well today. Arc System Works' Family Tennis 3D ($6.99, 3DS) looks cute and has the most Japanese music ever created. On the Wii, 2020 Super Baseball (900 Wii Points) hits the Virtual Console, and I'm very pleased that this cyber baseball game has come back to us. 

On the non-sporting side of things, how about making some pottery? WiiWare title Let's Create! Pottery (500 Wii Points) lets you do just that. Nintendo says that it's "therapeutic and uplifting." I hope I can re-enact that romantic scene from Ghost with a WiiMote. 

Also available this week:

  • The Legend of Zelda (3DS, $4.99)
  • Heroes of Ruin demo (3DS)
  • Sakura Samurai: Art of the Sword (3DS, $6.99)
  • Akari by Nikoli (3DS, $4.99)
  • Topoloco (3DS, $4.99)
  • 3, 2, 1... WordsUp! (3DS, $1.99)

What are you getting this week?

Been playing MGO obsessively, still can't find anyone in their right mind that uses the Hush Puppy. So of course I'm gonna be the dumb bastard that tries.

Why don't we have more games that use filtered 3D models to creat faux-pixel art? It's such a cool, smooth style, but you never see any games using it.

Oh lawd. Next Saturday, Gamestop will have three hour access to Tri-Force Heroes. Nintendo, really wish we could just get normal demos from you more often, please!

Star Wars Battlefront is pretty good. Except the beta is basically a demo with nothing in it so that upsets me. but it's still pretty good.

Just cleaning up the last of Gotham's Most Wanted before I finish Arkham Knight. Those Riddler trophies...much more fun than Arkham City but my word, stop it Rocksteady. Love the game though, outstanding. In my top 5 this year, fo sho.

Looks like my copy of Chibi-Robo: Zip Lash won't be here till Tuesday. What do I pay for Amazon Prime for again? I think I might have to stream me playing it.

I have just heard someone say Uncharted was a "role playing game."

The glitched walking animation people carrying crates in Novigrad do is hilarious.

Undecided what to do with my weekend now my fiancée is away. One part of me says I should work my ass off, another says I should go watch The Martian while the last part tells me to be a slob, play games and masturbate to Highschool DXD.. Such a hard lif

The 1.10 patch for The Witcher 3 is out. Downloading for PS4. Pretty excited to see the changes, especially since it said the damn swamps in Velen would finally see performance enhancements, along with like a million other areas. So good! Yes?

Just got confirmation that a feature I spent way too long writing is going up on Sunday. Not a bad way to start the weekend off, though I wish I had a slot on a weekday.

PB&J sandwiches. Saturday morning cartoons. A blanket. Ominous sounds coming from the next room. Blood seeping from the walls. A dark figure standing in the corner, staring, watching. Darkness, everywhere. Such darkness. This is childhood.

Spiel was mightily expensive. Holy shit... Good thing I didn't bring more money with me, too. Saw enough stuff I'd love to own.

Trialling PS Now - review to come later - has reminded me of a piece of little-reported PS3 news. Owners of hacked PS3s could turn any PS2 game into a 'Classics' title and run them on a bog-standard PS3 with few issues.
