I picked up the “Humble Friends of Nintendo Bundle” because it was a ridiculously good deal for the price. I mainly picked it up for three games:
Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse: I love platformers and this looks like it could be right up my alley. The trailer made it look fast-paced and stylish. I’m in.
Citizens of Earth: From the trailer, this seems like a Pokémon game where you collect people, and that’s a gimmick that I can definitely get behind. I hope that the quirkiness and sense of humour from the video introduction can translate to the full game.
Affordable Space Adventure: I was looking for a new cooperative game to play with my fiancée, but she is a bit difficult when it comes to picking games. However, she is a huge Trekkie, and I’m hoping that piloting a spaceship and fiddling with a bunch of important systems will be something that interests her.
I would have paid a reasonable amount of money for these three games alone, but I’ll gladly take the rest. Retro City Rampage looks like it could be good mindless fun. Freedom Planet makes me think of old-school Sonic, which is not a bad thing at all. I could definitely play a few rounds of Super Street Fighter IV against my coworkers when we get tired of Super Smash Bros. on 3DS.
I am not as interested by Rhythm Thief or Darksiders II, but I am going to give these games a chance to change my mind. I am also very much looking forward to seeing what the game or games added to the bundle next week are going to be.
