Because our hearts beat as one.

All right y'all, unite up. We got some downloads to go through, starting with the big game of the week: The Wonderful 101 Remastered. It's actually a Kickstarter success story in that they managed to go from campaign start to out in three months (even if the game was like, 99% done), but the comparisons to last year's Astral Chain suddenly make a lot of sense.

Please blame the following for the late posting: The PGA Tour, 2K, Nintendo, Bethesda, and my IRL employer.

This week's big, BIG release is the creation of the Garreg Mach Knights in Super Mega Baseball 3, a game that might win this site's GotY by default when I stage a bloodless coup.

If you're looking for Star Wars day, that was yesterday on the revenge of the 5th.

It's an interesting week for the eShop if only because of some of the games up for grabs. The headliner is the Indie MIX published Jay and Silent Bob-themed NES brawler Mall Brawl, just because who would have expected a Jay and Silent Bob licensed game in 2020? There's also the evil-sounding Void Bastards if you need a bit more of a slower pace, the game mashup (literally) SuperMash, and serene bike rider Lonely Mountains: Downhill.
