Of all the games available when the Wii U launched on Sunday, Nintendo Land is the obligatory minigame collection that everyone's come to expect Nintendo to put out. Everyone loves a good minigame collection, right? Right. It's essentially the equivalent of Wii Sports in terms of function. Though the game is packed in with the Deluxe version of the console, those not willing to pony up the dough for the bundle will have to purchase a copy separately. Is Nintendo Land worth buying if you didn't get it automatically with your Wii U? Hit the jump to watch Glen and Justin hop on the fun train to Nintendo Land, and go with your gut feeling.
Like I said last time, I only write these open letters when I feel the world is in immediate danger, and without real-life heroes sporting hair that towers into the sky but somehow tastelessly hangs over one of their eyes, sometimes I feel open letters are the only option. With the recent news that Square Enix will be cutting back on big in-house productions and with the re-release of a Final Fantasy VII PC version rather than a full-on remake, there's still one game Square Enix can make that will fit into their new smaller in-house production ideology, and still be pretty great.
Well, this was inevitable. The abysmal tedium of Mass Effect 2's mining segments has been well-known since initial reviews of the game came out; however, the minigame has now inspired minor nerdcore sensation Kabuto the Python (above) to pen a rap about his frustration with BioWare's design choices. Sample lyrics: "I used to rock microphones, rhymin' in the stadium/These days I launch probes, mining for palladium/Slouched at my console crying from the tedium/I contemplate relations with the slimiest of aliens." Video below: technically NSFW, but if your boss doesn't care about your listening to tracks about Mass Effect at work, we don't think the obscenities per se are going to be an issue.
