Your lackluster performance at E3 2012 is completely forgotten, Nintendo, for you have brought the glory of Mad Dog McCree upon the 3DS, given Wii owners Mega Man X2 , and given portable players an early taste of The Amazing Spider-Man.
Yes, I realize Nintendo has nothing to do with the creation or development of those three titles, but they appear on Nintendo systems, and that's good enough for the purposes of this article, which probably doesn't accurately portray my feelings about the company at this very moment anyway.
Note that Nintendo did create Donkey Kong Jr., also available today in the 3DS eShop, so perhaps they are indeed trying to seduce me. Oh Nintendo, you know it's too late for seduction.
Mad Dog McCree
Only one gunslinger can stop a Mad Dog gone wild... and that's you, partner. When the ruthless outlaw Mad Dog McCree goes on a rampage with a nasty pack of wanted fugitives, they leave death in their wake. Mad Dog McCree and his band of cutthroats have ridden into town, kidnapped the Mayor and his daughter, and taken them to his hideout. These hombres are mean and vicious. What this town needs is a gunslinger to spray a little lead in harm's way. Relive the gunpowder glory of the Wild West with American Laser Games Arcade Classic Mad Dog McCree!
