So that's your lot for this week's Nintendo Download. Go on, be a sport and drop a vote in the poll above, and comment below with your hot picks!
You know it, folks.
It's Picross time
No new games for me but just grabbed Shantae and the Seven Sirens and CrossCode now that they're on sale and there are a few others on my wish list that are tempting.
I want Root Double but I plan on waiting for the physical release next year as I wouldn't be playing it immediately anyway.
@neufel YEEAAH BOOOOIIII!!!
@BenAV CrossCode is on sale? Thankyouverymuch!
Not a great week for new releases - but when there’s so much on sale, it’s not a great week to release new stuff either.
I just want Serious Sam to come back, lol. I've odered a boxed copy of the Bioshock collection for £16 in a black Friday thing. Should hold me till next year hopefully.
Need for Speed has a 25% discount. That’s a nice kick in the goolies for anyone a purchased over the last few weeks
I'm just finishing Picross 4 so it's perfect time for number 5. I got to say that the 30 x 40 puzzles have to be played on the tele. There is no zoom feature like the DS version had.
