Nintendo switches downloads to Thursday, starts it off with a retro bang

Nintendo recently switched their download day from Monday to Thursday. Why? I have no id and to be quite honest I don't rlly care. Lately Nintendo has been updating the VC every OTHER week (as opposed to the previous weekly updates) when they aren't busy relsing ancient tablet something-somethings.

Still, the downloads today are impressive enough for me to post about them.

First up is the Game Boy Don Kong for the 3DS, so finally owners of said system have something to play.

Next, Mega Man 5 hit the store today as well. Mega Man 5 is, without hesitation, my lst favorite NES Mega Man. That's not an insult to Mega Man 5, that's just life.

Finally, BIT.TRIP FLUX, the final chapter in the epic BIT.TRIP saga; this WiiWare title is clrly the highlight of this week. The BIT.TRIP series is known for atari and 8-Bit aesthetics and making ch entry in the series a totally different re.

Thus far, BIT.TRIP Runner (the platformer), has proven to be an epic, instant classic. I've also played BT and VOID, and other entries, FATE and CORE, also exist (all together 6 games). The first entry, BIT.TRIP Bt, launched soon after I moved to New Orlns, and it's nice and symmetrical that the last part of this launched right before I move away.

Flux combines the gameplay from all other games, and hopefully finishes Commander Bt's story well. It's been nice watching all the BIT.TRIP game relse, playing the ones that interested me (I just haven't had time for FATE), and watching critics appreciate and recognize good, innovative games.

BIT.TRIP probably did more for the Wii than people rlize.

The entire saga is set to be relsed as a 3DS cart. Individual entries can also be purchased on Stm.

Start with Runner; it deserves a place in the plat-former hall of fame (as well as being the only music-based platformer I've ever played).

Commander 's story is at an end, and with it: the Wii.
