Wii U

Nintendo’s latest home console, Wii U, has been released in all regions back in 2012 but it hasn’t managed to become a smashing success like the original Wii, with the console struggling in pretty much all markets. Even though the console isn’t selling that much, Nintendo has been releasing some really high-quality games that make the Wii U a worthwhile purchase for all those who love Nintendo developed games.

If you are thinking about getting a Wii U console in the future, you may want to take advantage of a good deal that has surfaced online in the past few hours. Groupon is currently offering a refurbished Wii U Deluxe Set with Nintendo Land for the price of $199.99 instead of $249.99. An additional discount is also available when using the VISA5 code at check-out. The deal will be available for the next 12 days so make sure to take advantage of it if you’re thinking about getting a Wii U soon.

As already stated, Nintendo has released plenty of high-quality games on the console in the past few months. Last year a few new entries of popular franchises have been released in all regions such as Mario Kart 8 and Super Smash Bros, games that have managed to improve the console sales considerably. Other very interesting games have also been released for the console in the past such as the unique action titles The Wonderful 101 and Bayonetta 2 from Platinum Games, Hyrule Warriors from Tecmo Koei and a few others.

Several other high profile titles are also getting released later this year and early the next like a new entry of the Star Fox series, the role-playing game Xenoblade Chronicles X and the fighting game Pokken Tournament. Last, but least, another really interesting Super Mario game called Super Mario Maker will be released in all regions in a little over a week.

Ten million people play The First Descendant in its first week

The free-to-play shooter The First Descendant has gotten a lot of attention in its first week. The game’s publisher, Nexon, says that 10 million people have already tried it out.

Insider Gaming pointed out that since there is no cost up front, it’s still too early to tell how many of those players will stick around, but it’s still a big number for a new IP. On Steam alone, it peaked at 264,860 concurrents right after launch and has still managed to break 200,000 in the last 24 hours, so it looks like a lot of people are still really into the game.

It was a “mindless and repetitive grind,” and we gave The First Descendant a 3/10 in our review. Of course, that’s just one opinion; other experts have had different ones. Most people, though, say that the game’s annoying free-to-play model is the worst thing about it.

Are you one of the millions of people who played The First Descendant last week? Are you going to come back for more? Leave a comment below and let us know.

Raiden, the famous shmup series, will come back as a twin-stick shooter on PS5, PS4, and PC

Raiden has a long and interesting history as a vertical shooter in arcades. However, the series is going to get a Super Stardust HD makeover, which means it will switch to a twin-stick format. It comes out in Japan on October 31. There’s no word yet on when it will come out in the West, but we wouldn’t be surprised if it did.

A Gematsu translation of the game’s website says that the full version will have an arcade mode with up to six stages. There will also be an “Unlimited” option for people who want to be at the top of the rankings. It sounds like a pretty straightforward package in terms of what’s inside, but we think the action will be what makes it worth it.

There’s a trailer up top that should help you figure out what to expect. There are, however, different versions of Raiden 3, Raiden 4, and Raiden 5 that you can play right now on the PS5 and PS4, if you can’t wait for this game to come out in the West.
