After all this futuristic entertainment we've been getting recently, eShop's taking this week to look back, with classics from Nintendo, Two Tribes and Sega all popping up. Take your mind off of the fact that Christmas is coming and you have no money by, er, revelling in the past and spending some.
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (Wii U Virtual Console: Nintendo, £5.49) might be old, but with its baby winning hearts and heart containers across the world, it's shown modern-day adventuring whippersnappers a thing or two. Plus, Link looks all stumpy. Cute!
RUSH (Wii U: Two Tribes, £1.79 (launch price)) is Two Tribes' third classic release after Toki Tori and EDGE, and their second featuring coloured cubes as lead characters - this time navigating abstract 3D puzzle worlds. If I was a game designer, I'd slap some googly eyes on the things.
Wii Party U (Wii U: Nintendo, £34.99) is entirely adequate.
3D Ecco the Dolphin (3DS: Sega, £4.09) is a game that literally never features your character desperately trying to free itself from a net and looking very sad. Unrealistic.
3D Galaxy Force 2 (3DS: Sega, £4.49) is a faux-3D shooter where you paint targets before shooting loads at once, which, for some reason, is a system that immediately makes me like any game more.
Adventure Time: Explore the Dungeon Because I DON'T KNOW! (Wii U/3DS: Namco Bandai, £36.99/£28.49) takes the happy-go-lucky, endlessly fascinating world of weird cartoon du jour Adventure Time and makes it really boring. By Glob.
Wii Fit U Quick Check (Wii U: Nintendo, Free) allows you to transfer data from a Fit Meter to your Wii Fit U save game without having to get up to put the disc into the Wii U. Which seems counter-intuitive to me.
Cocoto Alien Brick Breaker (3DS: Big Ben Interactive, £17.99) attempts to totally reinvent the brick breaker genre by being a brick breaking game.
Girl's Fashion Shoot (3DS: Sega, £29.99) is not about a terrorist attack on Paris Fashion Week.
Also worth noting is that Level-5's often brilliant GUILD series is on sale until 2nd January - Attack of the Friday Monsters, Crimson Shroud and Liberation Maiden are all well worth grabing at £4.49. The Starship Damrey and Bugs vs. Tanks are probably not. Aero Porter is not on sale, presumably because it gave too many people stress-related aneurysms.
