Nintendo Missions and Rewards

Posted on June 9, 2022 at 9:07 am

The latest addition to the Nintendo Switch Online Subscription service is ‘Missions’ and ‘Rewards’.

When accessing the section, you will see available missions related to things you’re probably already doing as part of your subscription. By participating in these missions, you’ll earn yourself platinum points. These can then be redeemed for items in the Nintendo store as usual, but in addition, there will be new member-exclusive icon elements for you to collect and create new user icons. There will be a different theme each month, and each and every week, the icon elements will be refreshed. 

Nintendo does warn that there may be a delay between completed missions and points showing in your account, particularly during busy periods, so if they don’t show straight away, check back later.

Survival Game Stranded Deep Just Hit the Nintendo eShop

Posted on August 31, 2021 at 12:59 pm

Survival game Stranded Deep, which was initially released in 2015, has surprised Switch e-shop users by showing up on the storefront today, 31 August 2021.

The game appeared on Playstation 4 and Xbox One last year but the developer did not announce or reveal its plan until the game showed up.

The game allows players to experience terrifying encounters to test their survival skills.

The backstory of the game is that you were in a mysterious plane crash and you are stranded in the Pacific Ocean.  You are alone and cannot call for help.  You must build, craft, survive and escape the ocean. 

You can explore underwater and on land, you find to hunt for supplies, craft tools and build yourself a shelter.

This surprise launch has certainly not given gamers any time to research the game, but we are sure that you will enjoy the game anyway.

How To Clean A Wii U Disk

Posted on December 30, 2016 at 10:41 pm

Nintendo Wii U games come on optical disks, Wii U’s own unique game medium to be exact. But like any disk they can easily pick up dirt and light scratches, hampering their ability to load games.

Fortunately the disks can be cleaned relatively easily with a few house hold items. Here are the simple steps to clean a Wii U disk, from Nintendo.

  1. Dampen a clean, soft, cotton cloth with water.
  2. Use straight strokes and wipe the disc (non-labeled side) from the inside rim to the outside rim.
  3. Using a dry part of the cloth, repeat step 2 to dry the disc.
  4. After all of the water is gone, let the disc sit for at least two minutes to completely dry before inserting it into the Wii U console.
  5. Do not use solvents such as: benzine, window cleaner, paint thinner, anti-static aerosol spray or abrasive cleaners to clean your disc.
  6. Do not use machines designed to clean discs or remove scratches. These types of devices have been known to damage the surface of the disc.
  7. After cleaning, be sure to store your games properly. Storing games in cases other than the ones they came in, or storing them outside their cases, may damage the disc.
