Don’t sleep on Siesta Fiesta

Siesta Fiesta takes one of the oldest, most iterated but least innovated genres in games, and makes something totally new out of it. And it does this in an upbeat, cute setting with a beautiful presentation that almost seems too graphically impressive for the 3DS. 

I didn’t pay much attention to this game before its release. I’m a big dummy, and I’m telling you now that you shouldn’t be like me.

Siesta Fiesta is basically a Breakout game with a simple twist that CHANGES EVERYTHING FOREVER: instead of requiring you to clear the whole screen to move to the next stage, each stage scrolls from left to right. The goal is not to break everything, but to break as much as you can to get a high score by the end of the stage - while still being careful to preserve your life.

Tappingo 2 out August 28 in North America ⊟

That gives me just over a month to actually finish Tappingo. Man, maybe it is time to ease back into some puzzles. Of course, I only think of puzzle games as something relaxing before I start playing them – then it’s “why am I so dumb fljlsdfasldjf;aslfjsd;f”

Tappingo 2 will sell for the same $3 price point as the original.

Yesss, Blaster Master on 3DS VC ⊟

I loved this on NES, though I never finished it to my knowledge. Today on the eShop, you can get Blaster Master, a Metroidvania-esque game about a kid who loses his frog, then finds a tank, then decides to shoot everything he can find with the tank.

You can always keep up with the new eShop releases on our Releases page… as soon as I’ve finished updating it.

Meanwhile, on Wii U, the excellent Ufouria is out. Why two Sunsoft games at once? I don’t really know how the VC release schedule works, and I’m pretty sure Nintendo doesn’t really want to talk to me about it.

Tetris Ultimate on 3DS this fall ⊟

Ubisoft finally decided to tell us what we all kinda knew, that Tetris Ultimate would be out on 3DS in addition to consoles. While the other versions are out this summer, the 3DS release will come in the fall, with a “challenge mode” exclusive to 3DS.

"From disappearing Tetriminos to orientation-locked Tetriminos, be prepared for a variety of challenges that will test a player’s fortitude."

I can deal with that! I mean, I probably can’t, but I want to try.

New Mighty No. 9 footage ⊟

There’s a bit of old clips in here, but you’ll see a lot of new video in here too, showing off Call and the game’s bosses. While it still looks really unfinished and without the polish (the stage shown with Call looks super basic with only placeholder art), Comcept and Inti Creates still have a long way to go — around 9 months — before this releases.

R.I.P Comic Workshop screenshot sharing on Miiverse, Manga-ka Guild ⊟
Just a day after Comic Workshop released to the eShop, tensions are high in the app’s Miiverse community, where Nintendo disabled the feature allowing users to post and share comics they’ve made in the app.
Comic Workshop has its own dedicated site where users can share, rate, and comment on each others’ creations — similar to how Flipnote used to work — but the English version hasn’t launched yet, so Miiverse was the best and easiest way for people to show off their work with a community.
It’s not clear why the feature was disabled so quickly, but many Miiverse commenters presume its because certain members were taking advantage of the app’s camera features to post photos of themselves in their comics. Shadow847 seems to think that this is all Douglas’s fault.
Comic Workshop sounded promising, but now some are pledging to not buy it due to this change. :o( Little apps like these need all the sales they can get.

Gunvolt out August 20 in Japan ⊟

Woo! Azure Striker Gunvolt, the 3DS action game by Inti Creates, will release to Japan’s eShop on August 20 for ¥1960 yen (about $20) — no release date for the West yet other than “Summer”. I did not realize it was that close to being finished. I guess I imagined an extended Mighty No. 9 type situation.

Club Nintendo’s platinum/gold prizes are game downloads ⊟

Yeah, this year’s Elite gifts from North American Club Nintendo are not exclusive physical goods like they were in previous years – Mario hats, figurines, etc. They’re not even the old standby calendar. 

Instead, this year you can select one of 16 Wii U or 3DS games as a free download, ranging from full retail games (like Game & Wario) to fucking Ice Climber.

Club Nintendo has gone down while I was writing this post, but you can get the reward here when it comes back up. Though I like my Club Nintendo Mario hat and all, I’m not hating on a free copy of Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D.

Yumi’s Odd Odyssey now $20 ⊟

Not a sale, not a promo – Yumi’s Odd Odyssey, the localized version of Sayonara Umihara Kawase, has had a permanent price drop as of yesterday, to $19.99 on the eShop.

I never properly reviewed it, but I like it a lot, and $20 is an even more appealing price for it! And, uh, I should get back to that now that I’m sorta between games. I suspect a lot of people are between games just at the moment.

If Shovel Knight was released for Game Boy ⊟
… it would probably look a lot like this mock-up from Johan Vinet. You know what a Game Boy is, right? It’s one of those old things that looks like an iPhone case.

Rabi Laby 3 on 3DS eShop ⊟

For those of you wondering if Agetec was still around, here’s proof of continued life. Rabi Laby Episode 3, the latest in Silver Star’s cute puzzle-action series, released on 3DS eShop in North America last Thursday, published by Agetec.

Like the other games in the series, this one has you controlling both Alice and Rabi, both with different capabilities, to unlock doors and escape from each level. Maybe I’m finally going to get around to playing one!
