Shovel Knight

Imagine an NES game, but done if the NES had kept evolving a few more years. I’m having a blast playing this, and I’m doing so mostly playing it on the Wii U controller – there’s also a 3DS version, but since I play even my 3DS games at home, I figured the Wii U version was the way to go, since it gives the option to play on the big screen as well. I’ve only played a couple of hours so far, and I have a feeling it’s going to get challenging – especially the boss battles – but there’s just so much to love here in terms of presentation, music, and gameplay that I think I’m going to have a lot more fun playing this. Oh, and you gotta love the fact that it constantly taunts you with the life of the next boss you’ll be facing in the upper right hand corner of the screen.
