- Nothing for me this week25%
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!
Nothing. Nada. Zip. Zero.
Seems like good Switch support has passed.
Dredge for me. Fishing simulation with a dash of eldritch horror.
Nothing on there I am interested in purchasing this week.
Dredge for me, looking forward to playing it.
Nothing for me this week...but the fact that we got Bonze's Adventure makes me chuckle a bit. The level with the bloody pond is so terrifying and creepy that it makes me want to get the game just to see it.
Blade Assault, that’s it
Nothing for me. And it'll likely remain that way until Tears of the Kingdom launches unless I cave for a short game during a sale. Maybe To The Moon if it shows up in some spring sales....
@Zach777 if nothing on a list catches your own interest, that doesn't make it any worse of Switch support for others. Getting GrimGrimoire alone re-released AND portable in 2023 is insane.
Anybody knows if grim grimoire will have a physical release?
Think I'll dredge up some cash and pick up Dredge.
@Fulgor_Astral looks like it will. It's up for pre-order on Amazon w a 04/04 release date.
Lunark for me. I loved 90's cinematic platformers Flashback and Another World/Out of This World.
Really wanted to get Dredge after reading the review but the demo was quite a put-off for me so I don’t know now. It plays like a never ending loop. I’ll probably wait for a sale.
Just Dredge (it got delivered to my partners' work and he forgot to bring it home booo) and Anime Jigsaw puzzle because I unironically spent double digit hours on the Hatsune Miku one and found it to be very chill.
Edit: Add Arcane Vale to that list as well...
I wish I had your problem. I wonder what I could do with all that money I spend on the new games releasing every single week xD
I like too many genres I think. I never run out of stuff to buy!
Dredge is awesome... And should be in the Highlights.
I have over 350 switch games…. I also have a problem.
Then please tell me good sir/madam... Why do you seem negative that there hasn't been anything released recently to suit your tastes when you have a backlog as large as that? Or was your comment a bit tongue in cheek?
'Cause I know if the Switch support would slow down, or there is a quiet month on Switch I would actually be happy because then I'd be able to tackle the backlog a little without dumping another 20 odd games on it XD
Unless you have managed to clone yourself or slow down time your two separate comments does not compute... Explain yourself! xD
Eventually GrimGrimoire OnceMore and Voice of Cards Trilogy for sure, maybe Blade Assault, Dredge and LUNARK, too!
@Nanami_Ataraxia Luckily I mostly get games like these on sale but still, I wish I had the same problem too, so many games I'm interested in and so little time to even just try them all!
Bonze Adventure, Assault Suits, and Dredge for me.
And I've got my eye on Lunark, which started with a great couple of MetaCritic reviews so far...
The quietness (“drought”) this year compared with previous years leads me to speculate that something major is at play here.
This feels like the end of an era and the quiet rumblings of the dawn of a new.
I wonder with all this quietness what might be just over the horizon.
Hmm I see what you mean on the first party front at least compared to previous years, but there have still been consistent notable releases annually, in fairness my initial comment mainly referred to third parties (mainly indies) as that is a majority of what I play on the system, and in that regard, even to this day the Eshop is like a mini Steam store, at least to me.
TOTK and by extension it's new Oled makes you question their intentions, not only that,the Switch is still selling well albeit slowing down slightly. Surely the new Zelda would have been the game to sell a new system? Or is Odyssey 2 going to take the reigns there?
Of course they could try and sell one last shiny OLED and make us fork out for a new system shortly after 'play tears of the kingdom on the new insert name here' It happened with the Wii U after all, but those two consoles are like chalk and cheese, doing so on a successful console rather than a failing one would leave a bad taste in everyone's mouth. Meh only Nintendo knows. All I know is at least on the software front. I am sorted for many years, I'm in no hurry for them to release their next console.
@LikelySatan thanks! Will wait for that then
@Fulgor_Astral same boat, man.
