Stardew Valley & Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ No longer coming to Wii U, Devs Now Aiming For Switch Release

In an unsurprising turn of events, Developers ConcernedApe and Nicalis have pulled out for developing Stardew Valley and the upcoming DLC for The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth. 

This is what ConcernedApe had to say on the matter:

“Stardew Valley will not be coming to the Wii U, however. Looking at Wii U and the current gaming landscape, we made the difficult choice to shift our development efforts to creating a version for Nintendo Switch. I am really looking forward to the Switch, and I believe that the Switch’s unique capabilities could create some exciting opportunities for Stardew Valley. I do want to emphasize that I am absolutely committed to seeing Stardew Valley on Nintendo platforms, and I really do appreciate your support and understanding in this.”

It is understandable, With Nintendo confiming that they are pulling the plug on further Wii U software development and discontinuing Hardware distribution, indie developers has little choice but to follow suit.

However, as regards to the DLC, Binding Of Isaac: Afterbirth+ not coming to Wii U, it does seem a little odd but then again it’s not the first time a 3rd party game didn’t receive DLC on the Wii U, Ubisoft did the same with Assassin’s Creed IV: Black flag. It will be interesting to see if Nicalis release the game along with the DLC or whether it will have to be downloaded separately, only time will tell.

Donkey Kong Amiibo Battle Review

Kuribo examines the Donkey Kong Amiibo to determine which one truly is the King of Swing in his latest Battle Review!

It is hard to believe that more new Amiibo are coming out later this week because I haven’t even had a chance to finish reviewing the Super Mario ones!  After a long Amiibo drought, it would be crazy to complain though.  We’re taking a look at the King of Swing, Donkey Kong today.  While he is not quite as different as the two Diddy Kong Amiibo are, each Donkey Kong Amiibo offers something unique.  So let’s jump in and see which DK Amiibo is the best!

smash brothers and super mario donkey kong amiibo boxPose – One of the biggest differences with these two Amiibo is the pose.  Both represent the character well but they are still different from each other too.  The Smash Brothers Donkey Kong shows DK mid-jump in a dynamic pose.  With his arms out, he looks like he is itching for a fight.  While this doesn’t represent the character at an iconic moment (especially…

NES Classic Mini: First Impressions

Where do I start writing my first impressions about the NES Mini?

You can check out my first impressions video on the NES Mini below.

NES Classic Gameplays

Hi Guys & Girls, Mike Scorpio Here! Sorry I have not been around very much, I have been working on a new series of videos called NES Classic Gameplays for our YouTube Channel. In a nutshell, I demo each of the 30 games on the NES Classic Mini from Balloon Fight up to Zelda II in bitsize 10 minutes or so videos so all you lovely viewers can see what each game has to offer in terms of gameplay and story!

Each Video is uploaded everyday at 1:00pm GMT and has started on November 25th. With 30 games on the NES Classic, that means there will be 30 videos in total leading us straight into Christmas time. All videos are in alphabetical order which will hopefully give you an idea of when you can expect a particular game you are interesed in. Hoping for Super Mario? That might be a couple of weeks yet, Looking for some Double Dragon action? You can expect that sometime this week.

I hope you all enjoy these videos and you can check them out as they are uploaded via our YouTube Playlist or even right here! Be sure to subscribe to our channel to help support us further and slide the alerts toggle to ON so you never miss a video!

(Rumour) Big Update Coming For Pokémon GO! Trainer Battles, Trading and Gen 2 Pokémon

Apparently, Niantic Labs is reported to be planning a huge Pokémon Go update sometime in December that will finally give players what they’ve been asking for since the release of the App, Trainer Battles and Trading .

It is also rumoured that the update will also include more than 100 new Pokémon, both normal and legendary, and will also be able to raise your Pokémon Tamagotchi style, after the eggs hatch. This information was found via an analysis of Pokémon Go’s code by people associated with web scanner PokeVS. If this turns out to be true than Pokémon Go  could be making an impressive comeback during the holiday season (Wrap up warm kids!). Mew & Mewtwo are among the Legendary Pokémon that are due to make an appearance in the game.

What do you think about this rumor becoming true? Do you think its great for the long awaited trading and trainer battles to finally come to the gae or do you think it is too little, too late? Let us know in the comments below!

Wario Amiibo Battle Review

Kuribo examines Wario’s two Amiibo, including the new Super Mario one, to determine which one is the best figure.

As much fun as Diddy Kong was to review, I’m equally excited to bring you a review of the new Wario Amiibo facing off against the older Smash Brothers one.  Nintendo has perhaps played it a bit safe when it comes to Amiibo variations and alternate costumes for their figures and Wario is a nice exception to that.  You get two very different looks for one great character.  I’ve been a big Wario fan for many years which makes me extremely excited for this review.  After all, who doesn’t feel a bit lazy and yet want to be rich like Wario always does?  Let’s find out which one of these figures is worth your hard earned gold coins if you can only buy one!
