PSA: The Wonderful 101 is now $30 on the eShop(and Elsewhere, too)


Originally, I was going to write a blog on how much I loved this game and how it was massively under-appreciated it was even in the face of other Nintendo games that came out at the time of its release. It was basically the EarthBound/Psychonauts of today, a game that never got the recognition it deserved but probably will a few years down the line. How it's a masterfully hilarious mix of combat, music, story and style. How it gave me my money's worth with a ton of content. And also how reviewers criticized it for "poor controls" despite videos that had people playing it effortlessly.�

Instead of tell you of how much I like it, however, I want to give you the opportunity to experience it.

If you own a Wii U/want one and you don't own this game, I have some good news for you. The digital version of the game�received�a rather staggering price drop to $30 from $60. That's pretty, well, wonderful, especially considering the fact that this is a first party title and it's frustratingly rare that Nintendo would ever drop the price on a game, much less on a digital platform. But don't dwell on how it did in the sales department, make some room or buy an external hard drive to play the game ASAP.

If you're like me and like to buy things physically, though, no problem. The game has been at oh-so-nice prices like $30 at places like�Toys R Us,�Best Buy,�Amazon, and�Walmart�for a while now. In fact, the digital price seems to be a response to those massive price drops, interestingly enough. On Amazon, you can even basically buy the game as a companion purchase with other games like DKC: Tropical Freeze and Pikmin 3, with how free shipping works, or get it in a preorder with developer Platinum Games's next game, Bayonetta 2! Either way, it's a steal.

An aspiring artist from bumfuck nowhere, Pennsylvania. I lurked on this site prior to joining, and I hope to do something with my time on this earth until I shed my mortal coil. but for now, let's waste some time.

I've been doing artwork on the side for a while, but I have only recently started sharing it around outside of family and friends(and also obscure forums). Hopefully I'll turn out to be a valued member of the site.
