As the year starts to draw to a close we receive yet another disappointing installment of Nintendo downloads. To be entirely honest with you, almost nothing on this list is worth checking out. Pleading the same case for the Wii is a bit moot at this point, and even the handheld releases have been a lackluster in recent memory as well. That being said, here it is, my pick for Nintendo Download of the Week for December 1st, 2011.
My pick for this week is going to have to go Double Bloob for the DSiWare service. It has an ESRB rating of E for Everyone and will be available for download through the eShop and DSi Shop Channels at the asking price of 500 DSi Points ( $4.99 in eShop). The reason why I decided to go with this game was because it looks like a somewhat decent vertical shooter that could end up being a lot of fun to play. If anybody else is into these types of experiences then by all means download this one as soon as it becomes available.
As far as the other handheld downloads go (one new DSiWare, and one new 3DS VC title), there really isn’t that much to brag about. Find out how this medical saga wraps things up in House, M.D. – Episode 5: Under the Big Top. Take a trip down to a beautiful island, in portable form anyway, when playing Adventure Island.
Once again, our lonely friend the Wii only has one new Wiiware title available for download; capture the Christmas spirit, and maybe solve a puzzle or two along the way, in Xmas Puzzle.
All this and more can be found in the eShop, DSi, and Wii Shop Channels very soon. Have fun!
