Monday Bloody Funday: Everything Sounds Dirty If You Think Hard Enough
What is this smut Nintendo has made available for download this week?
Teehee, “hard enough.”
DSi Ware sees the second batch of three Game & Watch titles released, with Manhole (erm…), Vermin (eww), and Helmet (you know, like the top of a wiener.) All three games were made available between Game & Watch Gallery 1 and 2, with the requisite Modern modes, and Manhole is in Game & Watch Gallery 4 as one of the bonus games without a modern mode, AND was also an e-Reader card packed in with the peripheral (a taste of a full Game & Watch e-Card line that never materialized.). Offhand, though, I’d say Helmet is worth the 200 points, as it’s a bit different from the usual G&W games where you’re basically catching some approaching object before it falls/reaches some goal line. Really, though, just get the Gallery games if you still have one of the 10 or so devices that can play Game Boy/Color games.
The other DSi Ware release is Mr. Driller: Drill Till You Drop (oh heavens.) 500 points gets you three different gameplay modes, which sounds like a nice price for some classic Mr. Driller action on the go. I’ve only played a little bit of the first Mr. Driller, and it’s pretty fun! I never picked up Drill Spirits when it launched with the DS because they left out a whole mode that was in the Japanese version for no good reason, and I never imported either.
On WiiWare we have Learning With The PooYoos: Episode 2 (haha, poo), and Fishie Fishie (ewwwerm…), both for 500 points. One’s an edutainment title and the other has an amazing trailer. It’s a port of a free PC game, which you can check out here.
FINALLY, on Virtual Console there’s IRONCLAD (bondage or something,) a shooter for the Neo Geo and thus available at the price of 900 points. If Ray gets drunk and bored he’ll download this, I know. I’m just as surprised as anyone that there are still shmups that haven’t been released on Virtual Console.
And if you think I’m reading too much into the names of the games, click on over to Nintendo’s press release which promises “instant gratification.”
