Talking Point: What Games Are You Playing This Weekend? - Issue Nine

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Because that's what weekends are for

The weekend is upon us, so it's time to break out the good-stuff — by which we main games, obviously. There are always more games to play, even if none of them happen to be new; if you haven't bought anything this week just play something you already have, unless it's a recently released online-only single player offering from EA, in which case get in the server queue and play error message bingo...

But hey, we don't have to worry about that with Nintendo games — yet — so we can just fire up a cart, disc or download file and get right into it. Naturally your humble Nintendo Life writers will be doing just that, with some even playing on Non-Nintendo systems, and we want to share all of the details with you. Mainly because, unsurprisingly, we like talking about games.

Anthony Dickens

F-Zero — One of my favourite franchises from Nintendo, I'm going to be jumping in to the Fire Stingray(?) and try and at least complete the game on standard to see if I've still got the skills!

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance — Ever since Madworld for Wii I'm always interested to see what Platinum Games come up with, the latest game with the Metal Gear franchise has been great fun so far, but more progress needs to be made!

Tom Whitehead

Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate and Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate — I'm playing these for reviewing duties, as those spying on me via their friend lists on Wii U and 3DS already know, and can't say anything except that I have to devote every gaming moment to these two games until the job is done. It's a tough life, but please don't ask for opinions on Miiverse — I can't give them yet.

Jon Wahlgren

Spec Ops: The Line (360) — I had heard some intriguing things about the story of this one so I've been sinking deeper into it this week. It's gotten pretty hairy in there and I'm really curious how it'll all end.

The Amazing Spider-Man: Ultimate Edition — This is now the third platform on which I'm reviewing this game and the first one with city swinging intact. A far better experience than on Wii or 3DS but still with a lot of the same gameplay hang-ups, as well as some gnarly screen tearing. More to come.

Fire Emblem: Awakening — Curse you, paralogue 10!

Ninja Gaiden: Razor's Edge — I've suddenly found myself inundated with great-looking beat-em-ups in the past few months and I'd like to start knocking them out. First on the list is a quick slice through Ninja Gaiden.

Andy Green

I know I always say this but this weekend I am going to finally start Paper Mario: Sticker Star or Assassin's Creed III. I've been extremely busy lately so I've been gaming in small little instalments. I recently started Professor Layton and the Curious Village so I'll probably complete a few puzzles on that this weekend too. A true gentleman leaves no puzzle unsolved.

Orla Madden

After a hectic couple of weeks with work and moving out, I finally have some free time over the weekend to get some gaming in. I made a vow to myself this week that I want to complete the National Pokédex, so the minute work finishes today I'll be picking up Pokémon White 2 and embarking on that epic journey. Be free to share your Friend Codes with me, I've only obtained 25 Pokémon as I write this and will surely need plenty of help. However, it may be a while, as I've just secured my 6th Gym Badge!

I'll also try and squeeze in some Playstation 3 action with Ni no Kuni while I'm at it, a beautiful game which is really only opening up to me now. I'm currently 9 hours in, I've just finished the Temple of Trials, and I can't wait to jump back into it.

Philip J Reed

I'll be playing catch-up this weekend, I think! I need to dive into the DLC for Fire Emblem: Awakening, which I've been buying religiously but not finding time to play. Also, a few weeks back I downloaded Rayman 3D from the eShop and 100%-ed it almost without putting it down, it was that much fun. Which reminded me that I still never picked up Rayman Origins. I'm rectifying that immediately. Finally, I'm plowing through Retro City Rampage, which was absolutely worth the wait, and if you haven't downloaded it yet we're no longer on speaking terms.

Ron DelVillano

This weekend I'll be playing quite a bit of Wrecking Crew before writing up a review for it. And I might watch Wreck-It Ralph just because I can.

I'm also very excited to explore the island of Yamatai in my shiny new copy of Tomb Raider. I'm all about open-world survival, and this one just looked too good to pass up!

Morgan Sleeper

I'm on the road this weekend, but my trusty 3DS will be along for the ride so I can sneak in some adventuring with Etrian Odyssey IV whenever possible! It caters to my deep love of maps and combines addictive dungeon crawling with a beautiful setting, so I've hardly been able to put it down since my beloved Aoraki guild started on their grand journey. I'm also in the final hours of Persona 4 Golden, but I'm dragging it out as much as I can - I'm not ready for my year in Inaba to end!

Gaz Plant

Nintendo Land — I finally picked up a Wii U this week, and while I'm still waiting for a game to make sense of the GamePad, Nintendo Land is providing a fun distraction. It's not exactly groundbreaking, but with a group of friends, it's as much fun as Wii Sports was 6 years ago.

Rayman Legends Demo — Castle Rock helps me cope with the release date passing last week...

Martin Watts

This weekend I'll be dedicating most of my free time to Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon in preparation for our upcoming review. I've already had the chance to delve into the multiplayer mode (which I was really eager to learn more about) and am looking to forward to experiencing more of it!

Otherwise, when I'm not busting ghosts, I'll hopefully get the chance to enjoy my beloved N64. I recently picked up a few Japanese import titles, including Disney Dance Dance Revolution and Densha de Go 64. I really love exploring obscure titles, even if my Japanese skills are a tad rusty (read: non-existent), so let's hope I can work my way around those menu screens!

Ken Barnes

Ni No Kuni (PS3) — I've left this awesome game sat in the PS3's tray without booting it up for so long that I can hear Mr. Drippy crying. He haunts me. I'll be sat there in my Mr. Drippy t-shirt, trying to make the Lord High Lord of the Fairies' mum laugh, if I remember the point I'm up to correctly.

If I don't finish the game this weekend then...I'll probably be playing it next weekend, too.

Tomb Raider (360) — With the story complete, I've got to run around collecting all the thousands of collectables on offer. Thankfully, the quality of the game engine means that it isn't feeling like a chore yet.

Mario Kart 7 — After being comprehensively whipped in the last Nintendo Life Mario Kart 7 game, I feel that I have to at least try to polish my skills. I'll never be a champion, but not finishing last in every race would be nice. Finally won all the 150cc cups, so I just need to head online and test my mettle against some real-life players. It probably won't end well.


So there you go, a fairly diverse mix of games being played by NL staffers. Let us know your weekend gaming plans in the comments below, if you want to...

As always, I'm making a slow, sweet progression through Dark Souls and taking another stab at Lost Planet, since I never beat the original and now it has a third installment coming out.

On the handheld side of things, I've started playing Sakura Samurai (got it on sale) and so far it's a pretty fun little game!

After playing FE Awakening, I decided to finally get through FE Gaiden, which I did. So now I went back and started a second playthrough of FE6. Been a long time since I've played it so a lot of it feels new once again.

After that, I probably replay FE9/FE10 for the hell of it.

I would be playing Fire Emblem: Awakening and Trine 2: Director's Cut, but I'm going to be away this weekend. However, I'll be fine because this is going to be a great weekend.
@shinesprite - You needn't say more. DKCR is fantastic.

Tomb Raider, Fire Emblem Awakening, Resistance: Fall of Man, Runner 2, and force myself to finish the frustrating Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion. I'd love to finally start Fez if I have the time but it doesn't look like that's gonna happen anytime soon.

I'm away from home at the moment but shall continue with Ni No Kuni and God of War HD when I return. Ni No Kuni is super, one of my favourite games of the generation.

Currently playing Final Fantasy II on the PSP and replaying Super Mario 3D Land. Final Fantasy II has a rather good levelling system (you only level up the skills and attributes you use) and the music's lovely. It's got me in the mood for playing more Theatrhythm. It looks really nice and crisp on the PSP's beautiful screen, too. The base gameplay seems quite forward thinking for a game that is almost 25 years old.

DRLAdmin

DRL said:

@shinesprite No you needn't. Although I told myself I wouldn't play through DKCR until the 3DS version comes out. It's going to be a tough wait - that game's like comfort food for me.

I'm currently trying to finish "Rune Factory: Tides of Destiny" on Wii & "Crimson Shroud" on 3DS. Then after I finish those I've got "Retro City Rampage" (WiiWare) & "Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D" (3DS) lined up to play. I have a huge backlog so I'm just trying to get through it...

After finishing off Ico (I'm at the final save point) I'm going to fire up my brand new Wii U/ZombiU bundle. For 3DS I'm going to wander around Hyrule looking for the 4th dungeon (original game, 2nd quest), which I can't find and refuse to look up. Might play a bit of Mega Man as well, but not seriously; more of a warm-up for getting serious later.

I have 10-11 days before Lego City and Monster Hunter consume my life until Pikmin 3 releases, yeesh.

I'm also still playing Fire Emblem: Awakening religiously, although I'm reaching close to the end of the main story. Lastly, I recently started the original Pikmin in anticipation for the third game later this year :3

@ Jon Wahlgren

Paralogue 10 may seem like an escort mission on steroids, but by using a few shots of Rescue from the bottom-right conner of the map you can make turn this escort mission into free experience. Just be sure to watch out for the reinforcements from the stairs after you recruit Severa.

@TheRavingTimes haha yeah my initial approach was pretty terrible, but I've since beat it using a sinolar tactic.

originally I figured since my team was mostly overpowering I could fight on two fronts, but that's a generally terrible idea unless your weakest unit is able to slaughter all opposition. Which mine wasn't (I thought it might be a good opportunity to grind).

I kept everyone together, recruited Severa and knocked it out. <3 Lucina.

I've been geeking on that Castlevania Lords of Shadow - Mirror of Fate after ranting on that IGN video review: complete BS. The game is as great as its demo (and obviously better). I just beat the boss who finally gives the Battle Cross, that first was arguably epic. :D Now I can go round and round that beautiful castle to get me some collectibles. :)

I've had a games filled weekend!

Finished Fallout 3. It's taken me over 2 months but done every quest including all the DLC. Finished Jet Set Radio HD, and it feels just as fresh now as it did over a decade ago. I did Mission 25 in Advance Wars: Dual strike and I'm loving that game so much. I've been warned to stay away from Days of Ruin though.

I started Just Cause 2 after picking it up for £10. Soooo much game for so little money. I think it has the most fun car chases I've ever played. I just can't decide if its more fun to pop the front tire of an enemy truck, sending it into a roll, or to tether it to a bridge when it's going at full speed!

Finally, I started playing Pikmin for the first time ever! Picked up the Wii rerelease, also for £10. What a lovely game! And it shows that new ways to play don't require motion controls or game pads. I don't think Nintendo have made a new IP this good since it came out.
