Wii U games
– This new episodic series was created by award-winning adventure game powerhouse Telltale Games, in partnership with Minecraft creators, Mojang. As Jesse, you’ll embark on a perilous adventure across the Overworld, through the Nether, to the End and beyond. While at EnderCon, in hopes of meeting Gabriel the Warrior, you and your friends discover that something is wrong … something dreadful. You will drive the story through the decisions you make: What you say to people (and how you say it) and what you choose to do in moments of thrilling action will make this YOUR story.

I have been waiting years to play the e-levels in Super Mario brothers 3 (Mario Advance 4) so I am looking forward to buying that game later today . I didn't play Mario & Luigi Paper Jam but the critical consensus is that the game is not the best Mario RPG Nintendo has released . Overall a nice week with lots of quality releases !
