So that's your lot for this week's North American Nintendo Download. Go on, be a sport and drop a vote in the poll above, and comment below with your hot picks!
Pretty good week; Switch and mobile.
Hmm. I forgot about Dr Mario.
The font in DragonQuest Builders 2 is so small! I can't imagine playing this game with Switch Lite's smaller screen. You'll need a magnifying glass to read.
I forgot about the new Tiny Metal game. I really enjoyed the first one. It's not an enhanced version of the first one is it anyone?
Nothing for me, but pretty good week.
I was mildly interested in the Dr. Mario mobile game until I found out how apparently predatory its microtransactions are
@Spoony_Tech I think it's a full-blown sequel.
I must have that Forklift Game!
I’m saving myself for Fire Emblem!!!!!
I didn't see the "Still waiting for DC Universe Online" option on the poll.
Dr. Mario World is really fun so far. I’m mostly going to be playing the new free DLC in The Messenger though.
Luckily you can zoom in on the screen now
This is a fantastic week. Dragon quest builders 2, blazing chrome, ziggurat, super mutant alien assault, streets of rogue, psyvariar delta...
Dragon Quest Builders 2 and God Eater 3.
Dynamic duo of awesome games with awesome demos.
Dragon Quest Builders 2 is my summer game! Can't wait to start playing that in a few hours. Also downloaded Dr. Mario for quick little sessions here and there.
I bet I'm the only one who voted for Forklift: The Simulation.
God Eater for me, with Blazing Chrome and Lethal League a little down the line.
Pre-ordered God Eater and Dragon Quest builders 2 for both me and my wife! Two most anticipated games of the summer for me and her
The Messenger Picnic Panic DLC for me 😀 nothing wrong with not spending a buck on games this week.
Every week is just a flood of names to me, it's rather difficult to parse and see what may actually be interesting.
Streets of Rogue looks great and I’ve been waiting for this on Switch for awhile.
Getting physical DQB2 tomorrow.
My wallet is safe this week, except for free Dr. Mario World which is fun for a few minutes here and there. But I'm ready for the Switch $ onslaught soon.
Builders 2 for me.
Are there really forklift enthusiasts?
Hey @Dazza why no mention of the Umihara Kawase Fresh! physical release?
@flapjack-ashley i did!
DQ Builders 2 for me. Going to be a light month. Recovering from car repairs.
Was getting God eater but tried the demo and its a mess.
Getting God Eater 3 physically since I never played the series before, downloaded Dr. Mario for like...an hour or so before deleting that game. lol
"Streets of Rogue"? Is the soundtrack by a dime-store version of Yuzo Koshiro?
Dragon Quest Builders 2 is pretty sweet and so is Blazing Chrome, but I'm waiting for MUA3 and FE Three Houses. July is turning out to be a crazy good month though. Lots of solid games.
I'm too busy playing Super Mario Maker 2 and Banjo-Kazooie at the moment.
Blazing Chrome is everything I need in my life right now.
@Lord Really? I played the demo and I thought it was pretty good. You make me feel like I missed something. Let me know why you think that, before I waste 60 bucks.
Note: I only played the 1st mission. Liked what I saw, didn’t want to spoil the rest, so I stopped playing. Would I have seen something beyond that to stop me from buying it?
I'll probably try out Dr. Mario World in the next few days. I don't plan to drop any actual money into the game though.
Not getting Dragon Quest Builders 2 until next week and I’m getting it physically
With Donkey Kong 3 and Dr. Mario World coming out, I think I am good for my I want to waste a few minutes before jumping back into XC2.
Nothing this week, waiting for MUA3 next week.
Downloading? Nothing. Physical pickups? Dragon Quest Builders 2 and Psyvariar Delta. Everything else can wait for a steep discount.
They wanna release Dr Mario for mobile fine but that game definitely belongs in the eshop! Cmon Nintendo!
Eagle Island and Blazing Chrome once I'm done with this sick Messenger DLC!!!!
God Eater 3 and Tiny Metal for me, though my paycheck comes next week.
DQB2 physical this week or next, but no downloads for me this week.
Forklift Operator? Really?? I really think we're scraping the bottom of the barrel here - and this is coming from a former forklift driver. Not a terrible job by any means, but how many people look at forklift driving and think "wow, that would be an incredible video game"?
@Realness well it's mostly personal feelings, coming from a different but similar game MHGU. I found the whole prison hub clunky and the biggest let down. The gathering and crafting did not feel very intuitive and the big creature takedowns had very little satisfaction feel, mostly caused by button basing more than controlled exploitation of creature weaknesses. In multiplayer the lack of character classes and weapon classes would lead to less team co-op and more all for self style play.
