Lots on sale, slim pickings for good stuff though. Still, Minecraft Story Mode! For ALMOST THIRTY QUID?! HAHAHahahahahahahhafuckno. From Nintendolife:

 

Wii U eShop

 

Teslapunk (klutzGames, €9.99 / £8.99) - This has the look of an old-school vertical shoot 'em up, as you fight off an invasion from Mars "led by Emperor Zangórax, who back on Mars is a popular DJ by night and a frantic invader by day". Fair enough. It looks rather promising, and beyond a six stage campaign it has a survival mode; we'll blast away for a review.

 

Scribble (Bear Box Media, €2.99 / £2.99) - This takes the core aspect of the equivalent Pictionary-based minigame in U Host and expands it across multiple modes. There are five modes and over 1500 words from 17 categories, with the option to also create your own words and contests; potentially ideal for the festive season.

 

Breakout Defense (nuGAME, €7.00 / £7.00) - Based off the classic Breakout formula, this one seems focused on two paddles competing against each other, as you take on the AI or a friend locally. That seems to be the overall selling point here.

 

Test Your Mind (XenoHorizon, €1.99 / £1.99) - As the name suggests this is a compilation of puzzles and minigames to put your brain to the test, and naturally it supports two player action for some couch multiplayer. Ultimately we were rather unimpressed in our Test Your Mind review.

 

 

Wii U Virtual Console

 

Pikmin 2 (Nintendo, €19.99 / £17.99) - This is the 'New Play Control' Wii version, utilising the Wii Remote's pointer capabilities. This release does now mean that the entire trilogy is available and playable on Wii U, which is a rather pleasing thing - we enjoyed this Wii version a lot in our original review.

 

 

Wii U Retail Download

 

Minecraft: Story Mode - The Complete Adventure (Telltale Games, €34.99 / £28.99) - The chapters for this eventually made their way to the eShop in North America, though Europeans missed out; now the 'complete' adventure is arriving as a retail release in the region. Available from 16th December.

It also has a level creator with QR code distribution; it got a big 'meh, it's alright' from us in our Johnny Dynamite review.

 

The following are a series of small games released as inexpensive downloads, seemingly targeting a young audience. Kutar is a mascot that's "not a dog, cat or bear", with each short 'quest' supposed to be easy to play for young gamers:

New Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console

 

Demon's Crest (Capcom, €7.99 / £7.19) - Firebrand the Gargoyle features here, and needs to recover elemental stones before his enemy, Phalanx. It's dramatic stuff, and this SNES action platformer also gives you freedom in stage order along with some ability to explore. We liked it a lot in our review.

I'm playing through Splinter Cell: Blacklist at the moment - for anyone that hasn't played it already, it's a bargain at under £7! Same for ZombiU.

 

Anyone got any thoughts/opinions on that Legend of Kay thing - £3:99 seems cheap....

 

Blacklist is superb. I was thinking about another play through recently.

AC: Black Flag is great too, but I expect anyone who would have wanted to play it already has, and if not, it's a tenth of that price on other platforms anyway.

 

I'm still plodding through III (and Bloodlines) and was planning on picking up AC:BF for the Wii U when I get to it.  When did the discs become so expensive?  Sigh.

It's a tenth of £9:99? So it's basically a quid on other platforms? Crikey!

Pretty much, yep! Around £1.29 on Xbone, and often just £1-2 on PC and PS3. PS4, I don't know - more expensive though.

 

And it was free on the 360 on GwG I think?

Holy shit, didn't even know that existed! Christmas come early!

 

It's a tad easier than the GB original. Mainly because you got more screen estate on the NES. But damn, it's good. Makes the jump to Demon's Crest a tad more logical as well. :)

Digitally, the cheapest it's ever been on PC is £3.49 (£3.99 on Steam itself), and it's never been anywhere near that cheap on PS3 (£5.79) or PS4 (£11.99). Or Xbox One (£5.28). So it's relatively expensive, but not worth rushing out to buy a PS4 for.

It's been a fiver on both PS3 and 360 in Sainsbury's - I bought a copy of the 360 one then for a friend last Christmas.

 

I may be thinking of Unity for the Xbone price. I thought there was a thread about in Bargains, turns out that was Unity.

 

Actually, thinking about it, if it wasn't for cost the Wii U version is the best one anyway because of the map. It's a boon for the boating sections.
