GoNintendo 'End of Day' thought - My Parents Play: Super Meat Boy

Friday, boys and girls! The last day of the week is here and not a moment too soon. Time to knock this sucker out and get into the fun stuff! I hope you all have some fantastic plans ahead of you this weekend, even if it just means taking a nap and playing games. I say you earned it, damnit! See you in a few, short hours.

We've been writing about Super Meat Boy for sooooo many years. It's actually surreal for me to write that the game really is coming out on Wii U next week. While the title never did hit WiiWare, Team Meat kept a promise and brought the game to Nintendo fans.

Team Meat was also nice enough to give us an early look at the game on Wii U! Now I've played Super Meat Boy to completion years ago, but my parents have NO Idea what it is. I knew it would be a perfect game for them to check out, and Team Meat made that possible for us a week early. A HUGE thanks to the game for helping us out. I think it was totally worth it. I'll let the results speak for themselves!

Kerbal Space Program developer hit with accusations of unfair wages, crunch time

Kerbal Space Program is on its way to Wii U after already becoming a major success on PC. One would think that all is just great at Squad, the dev studio that created the game. If rumors are to be believed, that's not the case at all.

While the game is doing fantastically well and more success is on the way, it seems that multiple employees are unhappy with how the studio operates. Claims of wages amounting to $2,400 a year have come floating in. It's important to point out that the studio resides in Mexico, where minimum wage is $100 a month. That said, the studio employs numerous international devs and asks for 40 hours a week in work time.

We're also hearing that the studio is the latest in a long string of game creators that ask their employees to really hunker down on development, making for extremely long work hours and unfair amounts of time without rest.

Squad is yet to comment on this matter. If/when they do release a statement, we'll be sure to share it with you.

Nintendo hosting E3 2016 business presentation

This isn't anything too crazy. Nintendo usually does this every year. A quick presentation on the business side of things. It's not for new game reveals or anything like that, nor is it an event that the public gets to see. Whatever goes on behind closed doors doesn't really hold much excitement for fans.
