OMG TWO COVERS!!!

Download the issue:

Fun Factor 3 Green Cover / Fun Factor 3 White Cover (left-click link to view in your browser or right-click, then “save link as…” to download!)

The cover story this issue is all about the unfairly ignored hardcore / niche games in the Wii’s library. We have write-ups featuring tons of our favorite RPGs, shmups, brawlers, point and click adventures, light gun shooters, SRPGs, rouguelikes, and psychological horror games on the system.

The issue also includes an overview of the Nintendo history of the Final Fight series, some of our favorite photos taken in Animal Crossing New Leaf, a piece comparing the cultures of Apple and Nintendo, a bit on the Wii U Summer Tour Chicago stop, and all the usual music and game reviews.

It’s a .pdf, so you can read it on your Mac/PC, iPad, Kindle Fire, phone, or whatever other .pdf-reading gadget you have!
