Demo of the Week: The demo for Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS easily beat the competition this week, which was full of solid demos. It was fun to try out the first portable "Super Smash Bros." game, but there's no way I'm purchasing the full version of that game, because I know for certain I'll wear out my brand new Nintendo 3DS XL's analog stick. Although the demo for Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS was first released last week, keep in mind that only certain Club Nintendo Platinum members was give the opportunity to download that demo before it was released to the public.

Graphic novel vs. three Team Fortress 2 items. Alien: Isolation is an upcoming survival horror game that's set in an atmosphere of constant dread and mortal danger. I figured that it would be informative to showcase the pre-order deals for the Windows version of that title, which is scheduled to be released on October 7, 2014. Here's a list of those deals as of September 19, 2014 at 2:42 PM PST: Digital Store List Price for Windows Version Special Offers Amazon.com $49.99 Free upgrade to the Nostromo Edition. Exclusive digital graphic novel. Gamersgate $49.99 Free upgrade to the Nostromo Edition. 250 Blue Coins (approximately $0.25 in virtual currency). Green Man Gaming $49.99 Free upgrade to the Nostromo Edition. Steam $49.99 Free upgrade to the Nostromo Edition. Three Alien inspired items for Team Fortress 2. Winner: Amazon.com has the best pre-order deal for the Windows version of Alien: Isolation, because they're offering an exclusive 24 page graphic novel that will never be sold digitally. Die hard fans of Team Fortress 2 will most likely pre-order that game on Steam, but I prefer an exclusive graphic novel over a few items will eventually be sold in the Steam Community Market.
Reviewer must run on Hawaiian Time. Vince Ingenito, Associate Editor for IGN, has finally posted his review for "Destiny," which he has been working on for weeks. Here's a few quotes from that review: "Cutscenes are kept to a bare minimum." "A simple FPS." "Destiny's 12-hour campaign." "Weak RPG elements." "Minimal story." I'd like to know why it took Mr. Ingenito, who works for one of the most powerful entertainment websites, weeks to review "a simple FPS" with a "minimal story" and a short "12-hour campaign?"

Buy now to save 33 percent. Renegade Kid's Moon Chronicles and Mutant Mudds is on sale for $5.99 (regularly $8.99) each on the Nintendo 3DS' eShop until 8:59 AM PT on October 2, 2014. Moon Chronicles is a first-person shooter in which Major Kane searches for his lost team members on the Moon. Mutant Mudds is a platformer in which the hero can jet between the background and the foreground playfields. I'm definitely buying Moon Chronicles while that game is on sale. I've been wanting to play that game since it was first announced this past January, but I have a policy that restricts me from purchasing full priced games if I have a vast backlog of games that I have purchased and have yet to beat.
