The Nintendo Download – 11/20/2014 – Smashing!
Wait, did I use that one already?
A nice lineup today, including a number of movie titles. If it weren’t for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U, I’d have gone with a movie theme this week.
As for my review, I’m holding on just a bit longer so I can give the online features a good go first. It will be here soon, and amiibo, too!
Watch_Dogs for Wii U – As Aiden Piece, a hacker whose criminal past led to a violent tragedy in his family, you’re out to gain revenge for your loved ones by using Chicago itself as your weapon of revenge.
DK: King of Swing for Wii U – Swing your way to victory with Donkey Kong and the gang as you collect bananas and crystal coconuts in the five worlds of Adventure Mode or the puzzling single-player Jungle Jam Mode.
Snake Den for Wii U – The PC classic returns with a twist, as now up to three players can partake in the ever-growing shenanigans through five worlds and 100 levels.
