US: Nintendo Downloads For March 16th 2017

This week’s Nintendo Download includes the following featured content:

  • Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch
    • The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ – The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth+ is a dungeon-crawling shoot-’em-up that’s a different game each and every time you play it. The randomly generated maps are built with more than 11,000 unique room configurations, each populated with a nearly endless variety of enemies, items, challenges and secrets.
    • Human Resource Machine – Human Resource Machine is a puzzle game for nerds. In each level, your boss gives you a job. Automate it by programming your little office worker. If you succeed, you’ll be promoted up to the next level for another year of work in the vast office building.
    • Little Inferno – Multiple nominee in the Independent Games Festival for the Grand Prize, Nuovo Award, and Technical Excellence, with honorable mentions in Best Design and Best Audio. Little Inferno is an adventure game that takes place almost entirely in front of a fireplace – about looking up up up out of the chimney, and the cold world just on the other side of the wall.
    • World of Goo – World of Goo is a physics-based puzzle/construction game. The millions of Goo Balls who live in the beautiful World of Goo don’t know that they are in a game, or that they are extremely delicious.
  • Virtual Console on Wii U
    • Picross 3D – Track the numbers to uncover the hidden shape in this beloved Nintendo DS classic. Tap a chisel to eliminate blocks you think don’t belong or use a paintbrush to mark ones you think should stay. Beginners and Picrossseries veterans alike will love this puzzle game that’s easy to pick up, but hard to put down.

Also new this week:


  1. I have Binding of Issac on preorder picking it up tomorrow. Now I am still torn between downloading either Little Inferno and World of Goo or World of Goo or Human Resources Machine. Any suggestions, I have played Little Inferno already on my WiiU love that game

    1. World of Goo is a must have. I don’t know Little Inferno nor HRM but I’ve read more good things about HRM than about Inferno. I mean all 3 are said to be great but I always felt like World of Goo was still the kind of flagship game of them, so be sure to get that. I mean the soundtrack alone stuck in my head for about 10 years now.
      And HRM is said to be a cool game to get you into coding. But I believe it would be a better fit for a mobile device than a console.

    2. Mike, I was going to make an intensive look video on these, but have been delayed. Human resource machine is fun, but.. it’s not for everyone. Let me explain.

      In human resource machine, you are basically being tricked into learning how to write basic code by building input-output instructions for a mail-sorting system. If you enjoy Tomorrow Corporation story-telling, it’s there, but the game mechanics are heavily based in logic and math.

      I was a science major, and I love math, so it was tremendously fun for me, however an old friend tried playing and said it was horrible to try and make people use their brain so much in a video game. – I’m serious, if you are not a logic and math kinda person, it will torture you in a bad way. And it gets more and more difficult as you progress.

      The other two are a blast. (literally in the case of Little Inferno) – World of Goo has a really fun story and although I have not played it without motion controls, I assume it would be fun on the switch as well. World of Goo also greatly uses creativity and some logic of the physical world, but it’s nowhere, nowhere as brain-intensive as Human resource machine.

      I love all three and would play them through again in a heartbeat if I owned a switch!

      1. I should add… IDK what they are charging for these on Switch, so that may need some consideration as well
