Weekly Digital Roundup: “y cant metroid crawl?”

ycantmetroidcrawlheader

If this Weekly Digital Roundup will teach you anything, it’s that some people suck at Super Metroid.

Okay, that was a little too harsh, I apologize. In actuality, it’s quite fascinating to see some people’s first time with Super Metroid, which is on the Wii U Virtual Console for the ridiculously amazing price of $0.30. Even if some of those Miiverse posts are potential trolls, it does show us how many gamers of today are spoiled by the hand-holding tutorials of today’s games. Whatever happened to overcoming obstacles via your own exploration of a game’s mechanics? </whippersnapper>

But I digress. Nintendo’s eShop has seen its fair share of action this week, with Super Ghouls ‘n Ghosts and Super Mario Bros. 2 now available for $8 a pop (or $1.50 and $1 respectively if you already own the Wii versions). The 3DS now has Mega Man 5 and Harvest Moon (GBC) on the Virtual Console.

F2P title Dust 514 is finally out of beta and available to all on PS3, in addition to the PS2 Classic Manhunt, which previous had compatibility issues for those who tried playing the PS2 disc on a BC PS3.

Finally, Metro: Last Light is available digitally for Steam, PSN and Xbox Live, and Wii U, Steam, PSN and XBL users can also sink their teeth into a demo for the upcoming HD-ified Resident Evil Revelations.

I’ve got the entire roundup for you right here.
