Your Blasphemous Abominations Come to Life in This Week's Nintendo Download

The sad bunny creature above has no reason to live, save your will. This is the power of Freakyforms: Your Creations, Alive!, giving you the power to create life from nothing with your 3DS. Who are you to play God?!

Oh, really? Ten years with the Royal Shakespeare Company? And a Bounty commercial? Well then you're perfectly qualified to play God. Sorry, you can't be too careful these days. Proceed to the Freakyforms web page to begin your training. It involves putting together random shapes and hoping they don't jump out of the 3DS and smite their creator when they're done.


As for the rest of you, feel free to browse the less godly offerings that make up the remainder of this week's downloadable Nintendo offerings. There's plenty to see and do, as long as you enjoy puzzles, conquering castles, or conquering steps.
