Talking Point: What Games Are You Playing This Weekend?
Posted by Thomas Whitehead
What else are weekends for?
Another busy week has passed, whether you've spent it at work, school, college or somewhere else, and now it's time to sit back and chill out over the weekend. For many of us that means taking some time for gaming, either delving into something new or playing an old favourite. We've taken a quick poll of four members of the Nintendo Life team to give you a glimpse of what they'll be playing this weekend.
James Newton — Editor
Landwirtschafts-Simulator 2012 3D — It's a German copy of Farm Simulator 2012 3D received for an upcoming review, oh yes.
Golden Sun: Dark Dawn — A classic DS RPG that may be revisited, though it's been so long that getting lost is real possibility.
Mike Mason — Assistant Editor
Rush Rush Rally Racing — A new version of a Dreamcast title, expected to bring multiplayer mini-car racing fun to WiiWare: the review will reveal all.
Kid Icarus: Uprising — A fairly recent purchase that still has plenty of play time left.
Little King's Story — Falls under the category of a great game that got left due to unforeseen side-tracking: it's more than worthy of a renewed effort.
Thomas Whitehead — Features Editor
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword — A second playthrough has just recently been taken on, and those aware of the unlockable game mode will know that there's a tough journey ahead.
Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones — This GBA title is on the 3DS courtesy of the Ambassador Programme; it's still early days in this particular battle.
Resident Evil Revelations — After conquering the standard and 'hell' difficulties, time for an 'easy' playthrough in pursuit of an achievement (no herbs or rocket launchers allowed). Why play the whole campaign for a third time in as many months? Because it's that good.
Corbie Dillard — Downloads Editor
Tales of the Abyss — One of the best the Tales series has to offer and having the ability to take it on the go makes it even better. Of course, the 3D effect doesn't hurt either.
Mutant Mudds — One of the best eShop titles to date and one that no matter how many times you go through it, you just want to do it all over again.
What will you be playing?
So there you have it, the weekend gaming plans of some of the team. What about you? Are your gaming sessions and games of choice already planned, or do you go with your instincts? We'd love to hear about it in the comments below.
