The first handheld gaming device to go head-to-head with the Game Boy (the Atari Lynx barely counts) reaches out its electronic hand in friendship to its one-time enemy, as three Game Gear games become playable on the Nintendo 3DS. How humbling this must be.
There's one major difference between today's Nintendo Download and our recent installments. Mike Fahey isn't writing this one. And that's why this one isn't as exciting as the recent ones. I mean, he got to tell you people about Pushmo, one of the best portable games I've played all year.
There might not have even been a Nintendo Download post today if not for the brave efforts of Pushmo, Intelligent Systems' endlessly entertaining block jumping game for the Nintendo 3DS. The rest of this week's games can go straight to hell.
There's tennis, a last ninja, a little strategy, and a shot of MySims in this week's Nintendo Download, but once you get past those it's just Me, You, and the Cubes.
The solo player reigns supreme in this week's Nintendo Download, with four games perfect for loners of all shapes, sizes, and dispositions.
What this week's Nintendo Download lacks in must-have titles it makes up for in sheer guts, with brain training, puzzles, a little golf, and a simulated planet all on offer.
