Nintendo Download: Kirby's Return to Dreamland Wii U

Jul 30 // Chris Carter
If you missed last week's edition, here it is. As for what I'm getting, I think I'll re-buy Return to Dreamland because of how great it is, and to add to the ever-growing collection of Kirby games on my Wii U. For those who are interested, sales are going on for both the Wii U and 3DS.

Nintendo Download: The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth

Jul 23 // Chris Carter
If you missed last week's edition, here it is. As for what I'm getting, Isaac on 3DS seems pretty rad. It's been a long time coming, and I use my New 3DS quite a bit, so I'll easily be up for doing a few runs every now and then on it. For those who are interested, sales are going on for both the Wii U and 3DS.

Jul 02 // Chris Carter
If you missed last week's edition, here it is. As for what I'm getting, I can't resist another playthrough of Ocarina of Time, even if I already have the N64 cart, the 3DS remake, and the GameCube compilation disc. For those who are interested, sales are going on for both the Wii U and 3DS.
