VVVVVVery impressive

When VVVVVV burst onto the indie scene in 2010, it was immediately lauded for its simple, addictive gameplay and unique vector visual style. After enjoying quite a bit of success on PC and Mac over the past two years, the game is now making an appearance...

Going beyond Nintendo

Last week the Nintendo Life staff voted for their favourite 3DS games at the moment, with retail and download-only titles eligible. Getting in before the swathe of hot releases coming in the next few months — kicking off with Animal Crossing: New Leaf this week — it reflected just how far the system's library had come, with...

One Year of the 3DS eShop

Happy birthday!

You might not have noticed with a little thing called E3 going on, but last week the Nintendo 3DS eShop turned one year old. Though the service started slowly, not even making it to the system's launch, it has morphed over the course of the last 12 months to become the decent digital portal that DSiWare and WiiWare should always...

I wish I could play this, but the graphics hurt my eyes. Me and high-contrast and bold patterns don't get along. curses bad eyesight

So I guess it's a no-download for me. sigh

I just checked the price for this on Nintendo.co.uk. I've been looking forward to this game for a quite a while now, but £7.20 seems a little steep to me. If Nintendo are going to compete with the likes of Apple in the area of downloadable games they might want to try offering more competitive prices. At £7.20 (around $12) this game is far from being an impulse purchase.

Indeed, and if you compare it to the US price (only 8 dollars) it's crazy.
We're waiting months for this game to get released, and when it finally does we are kind of double punished because of the price..

I'm starting to hate Nicalis.. maybe they just want us to ignore their games..



PixelatedPixie said:

Nicalis is probably to blame for the delay but I wonder if blame for the cost should be layed at Nintendo's feet. Is it not Nintendo that take the ultimate decision as to what charge bracket a game is put into? I'm sure a Nintendolife staffer could clarify one way or the other (hint).



Djrr-ific said:

That is only on WiiWare and DsiWare..

on the 3DS e-shop the publishers are pricing the games as far as I know..



Vallu said:

Gee, I waited 6 months for this to come into EU and suddenly it's 8 euros.



MeloMan said:

I can respect the pure awesomeness of this game but I don't have the nerves or patience to even try this game lol



Harley said:

This game is brutally hard...and that's coming out of someone who has played NES games all of his life. Anyone with a love for the Commodore 64 or ZX Spectrum Aesthetics or the difficulty of IWTBG should check it out.

This game is awesome! The manual is useless, but the rest is just awesome! Was absolutely worth it! My head almost exploded playing through the last levels (last level took me about 2 to 3 hours) but still, it is just awesome!
