To anyone that visits this site or followers the Twitter you’ll probably notice that I’m pretty interested in the Australia Club Nintendo Catalogue and have been recording changes in stock for quite a while. This morning it seems that our buddies at Nintendo Australia have caught some Christmas cheer and reduced some of their catalogue’s prices, meaning you could be saving quite a few Stars (20-40% off).

Like most video game consumers at the moment, I’m angry. I’m not entirely sure who they’re angry at, but I’m angry with myself. As basically anyone who reads what my drooling face outputs as I smash it into the keyboard in hopes of a coherent piece of writing, Bayonetta 2 released on the Wii U this week. I’m very proud of Nintendo, over the few years I’ve been following them intently, and this year they’ve really come out, guns blazing. While season passes for Mario Golf and Mario Kart 8 aren’t exactly new, when they let Tecmo Koei handle the Zelda franchise they put a step forward in sharing one of the biggest brands in the gaming industry. And back to Bayonetta 2, they’ve finally released the risky project for their standard portfolio.

After reading a bunch of reviews I decided to purchase Mimimi Production’s digital title ‘The Last Tinker: City of Colors’ on PS4. The reviews were incredibly mixed, with some comparing it to classics such as Crash Bandicoot, Spyro the Dragon and Jak and Daxter while others were completely stifled as to who the target of the game is due to odd difficulty curves and pacing issues. I’m currently finding myself in the middle of these ideals. It’s most certainly not a bad game. It has all the right stuff to make a wonderful game.

If you’re a South Park fan looking for opinions on whether you should play this game, stop reading and get a copy now. This is the perfect love letter to the fans and shows what a licensed game can achieve if the creators actually give a damn. It is chock full of references and titbits that fans will get laughs out of that people who haven’t watched the show in its entirety will completely miss. The type of humour appeals across all seasons of the TV show. Even though I’m not a big fan of turn based RPGs and even less of a fan of quick-time events that the game’s combat comprises of, the simpleness of the gameplay and the incredible ‘authentic South Park’ script kept me going.

Gonna see if I can unwind.

I’ve been thinking about writing a review for Mario Kart 8 but find it a moot endeavour when everyone who reads my posts has made up their mind on the game and already bought it. What else can I say about it that hasn’t already been said by review sites and your buddies on social media? It’s a genuinely good game, with incredible sounds and visual design, the gameplay is solid and becomes extremely fun when playing with friends. And while you have the opportunity to play online, I’ve been having a hoot and holler playing split screen with family and friends. It’s crazy that I play a lot of games, and the most fun I can have is when playing with others.

Normally when I pay full price for a game I get paranoid that it will be on sale in a week.  When this does happen, I normally kick myself but when ‘Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney – Dual Destinies’ got a sale announced for it starting this Friday (21st of February, 2014) I didn’t feel bitter in the least. Instead I was overcome with joy that more people would be able to dip their toe into the amazing world of Ace Attorney.
