Nintendo Download: Cut the Red Wire … No, Wait, the Blue One!

It’s an explosive new Nintendo Download this week with the release of Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes. Oh, and there are zombies too.

Diffuser

This might be a bit of a lull that we’re heading into on the Download. There isn’t much this week, and it’s the tail end of August, so the next few weeks could be a little on the “meh” side. Just gives you a chance to play a little catch up, right?

Maybe I shouldn’t be so down though, since there are some gems this week, just not a lot of them. Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes is the headliner, and is a game about diffusing a bomb. It sounds… okay.

Then there’s what I’d consider the real top title this week- the final season of The Walking Dead. Telltale’s series of graphic adventures might not have the oomph that it used to, but this is the end of things, and should be a pretty solid time. The developer knows about telling a good, emotionally gripping story, and there’s no reason not to think that that’s just what Clem’s finale will have in store. This is part one of that (though there’s a season pass too).

Past that? Well, there’s Metal Slug 4. And… eh, just take a look.

Nintendo eShop on Nintendo Switch

  • Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes – In the Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes game, one player is trapped in a room with a ticking time bomb they must defuse. The other players are the “Experts” who must give the instructions to defuse the bomb by deciphering the information found in the Bomb Defusal Manual. But there’s a catch: The Experts can’t see the bomb, so everyone will need to talk it out – fast! Puzzle solving and communication skills – and maybe a few friendships – will be put to the test as players race to defuse bombs while communicating quickly, clearly and effectively.

  • The Walking Dead: The Final Season – Season Pass – After years on the road facing threats both living and dead, a secluded school might finally be Clementine and AJ’s chance for a home. But protecting it will mean sacrifice. In this gripping, emotional final season, your choices define your relationships, shape your world, and determine how Clementine’s story ends.
