Forget that gym membership, Wii Fit U has a free trial!

Wii Fit U is finally here to help you drop some pounds before the culinary onslaught that is American Thanksgiving! The best part: there’s a free trial version. This week we also got some Virtual Console love with one of the best Castlevania games under the sun and one of the most frustrating NES games ever made. Not to mention quite a slew of retail releases, so there should be something for everyone this time around.

Next week I'm hoping for some high-octane releases as we enter the November Gamepocalypse, but only time will tell. This is a great chance for Nintendo to bring some download heat in efforts to steal some attention away from the two impending console launches.

3DS eShop Games

Angry Bunnies - Price TBA

Really? We’re doing this?…Alright, Angry Bunnies is a game in which you fling small, round animals at other small, round animals in an effort to destroy their shoddily built structures. Except this time they’re bunnies, which are totally separate animals from, say, birds. Just saying.

Arcade Classics 3D - Price TBA

I know what you want: more arcade collections! This one features riveting titles such as a puzzle game, a space shooter, and a game where colored blocks fall from the ceiling! I wouldn’t pass this one up if I were you.

3DS Virtual Console

Milon’s Secret Castle - $4.99

If you didn’t have a subscription to Nintendo Power back in the day, then chances are you still suffer from moderate bald spots, because Milon’s Secret Castle can make even the most patient gamer rip their hair right out. That said, it’s a genuinely fun title as long as you take the time to research every nook and cranny that you’ll have to uncover.

Wii U Virtual Console

Super Castlevania IV - $7.99

Ah, Super Castlevania IV. The last great bastion of classic Castlevania games before they went all Metroid-style. I, for one, tend to prefer the more linear entries in the series, so Castlevania IV is one of the greats in my book. Plus, you can whip in eight directions. Eight directions!

Talkback

MetalMario2October 31, 2013

Lego Marvel Super Heroes kind of blows. It's just not as fun as previous Lego games. Also, the voice acting is mostly terrible, and the dialogue basically boils down to "Blah blah blah Agent Coulson, blah blah blah shwarma."

MetalMario2October 31, 2013

Hey, remember the good old days when Nick Fury wasn't the boss of every superhero in the Marvel universe, and nobody knew what shwarma was?

ShyGuyOctober 31, 2013

Fit Me? Well, Fit U!

ShyGuyOctober 31, 2013

Also, I just learned what shwarma means.

GraynoldOctober 31, 2013

OK, not really getting all the shawarma references. Anybody ever been to a Zankou Chicken for their delicious tri-tip shawarma plate?

DrHogieJosh Hogan, Staff AlumnusOctober 31, 2013

NOOOOOO NOT MILON'S SECRET CASTLE


I might hate myself enough to put me back through that game.  I can still vividly remember all of the thrown controllers at JonnyNWR's house attempting to beat that game.  Horrible, horrible memories.

There was this small, independent movie that came out last year. Called "The Avengers", or something strange like that. It didn't do a lot of business, but the black guy from "Pulp Fiction" was in it.

I'm going to need further instruction, I think. I didn't see an actual avatar in your message.
