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

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

It's obvious, isn't it?

It's the summer solstice in the Northern hemisphere, which means it's the longest day — in terms of sunlight rather than hours, because more hours would be silly — of the year. Ooh, all the more time for playing games with the curtains drawn because the pesky sun is making it hard to see the TV or portable screen properly: marvellous.

Of course, we should probably be basking in the extended hours of sunlight until our pasty skin is a delightful, burnt red, but we'll play some video games instead. In fact, we plan to play plenty of video games over the weekend, because it's a fun way to pass time.

So, as always in these articles, a group of your humble Nintendo Life writers will share their weekend gaming plans below, and we hope you'll do the same in the comments section. A lot of us are playing some weird game where you run around shaking trees and talking to animals, hm...

Mike Mason

Animal Crossing: New Leaf has taken over in full force. Whenever I get a spare few minutes I'm digging up fossils, catching fish and trying to scrape together enough bells to pay off that thieving raccoon. It's already becoming a problem.

I'll also be testing out the new StreetPass Plaza games and trying to squeeze in a little bit of New Super Luigi U.

Tom Whitehead

New Leaf is my first Animal Crossing game — engages flame shield — and I can't help but be oddly addicted; I'm struggling to find time to play, but I make sure I do the rounds in my village at least once a day. I'm also blasting through New Super Luigi U for our review and enjoying it a lot, as its changes from the original are subtle but significant.

I'm also planning to play episode 3 of Telltale's The Walking Dead on PC one night. I always insist on playing an episode in one sitting, so hope to find a few hours late one night to go through it; it really is an exceptional piece of storytelling, even with meaningless button tapping thrown in.

Andy Green

This weekend I plan to get stuck into Animal Crossing: New Leaf as I've hardly played it since downloading it last week, other than a few quick sessions here and there. I think that's what I love about it really, the way I can jump in and out as I see fit, and as I have a digital copy I can leap right back into Fire Emblem: Awakening without having to arduously muck about with cartridges - such a chore!

Naturally, Awakening will be getting a lot of playtime as I'm really into it now. I like to play it in long bursts so it's become a bit of a weekend game for me.

I will also be forcing people to play Animal Crossing: Sweet Day on Nintendo Land with me as I've become addicted to it again after playing it with the Nintendo Life crew last week during E3! So many sweets... I feel like Gaius...

Jon Wahlgren

It's my birthday weekend so I hope to carve out some celebratory game time — nothing like the gift of a cleaner backlog to give myself. I've been ripping through Injustice: Gods Among Us' story mode, which I find surprisingly fun, and I expect to knock that one out before long. I'll wait for the fabled update before bothering too much with multiplayer.

Otherwise I've got a small stack of Wii U games to work through, like ZombiU, LEGO City Undercover and eventually Game & Wario. Most likely I'll just end up playing Animal Crossing: New Leaf.

Rory Cocker

Like most of the Nintendo Life crew, I've been knee-deep in Animal Crossing: New Leaf for the past seven days. It's been so long since I've been engrossed in a game like this. For those who're yet to experience it, Animal Crossing's infectious charm is really difficult to put into words. Rest assured, though; once Blathers sinks his talons into you, it's nigh-on impossible to break free!

I also picked up The Last of Us midweek. I was planning on getting stuck in this weekend, but then I remembered I'll be in Birmingham for the Rezzed Expo! You win some, you lose some! Come say hi if you're going, and don't forget to bring your 3DS!

Orla Madden

I think it's pretty obvious what I'll be playing this weekend. Anybody who follows me on Twitter will know that all I've been talking about all week is Animal Crossing: New Leaf. It's just such an adorable game that I find very hard to put down. I've spent most of my time visiting other's towns; watering their plants, buying from their shops to help their town's development and passing on fruit from my town, I'm nice like that.

Other than that, I'll jump on Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate for some online action with friends if I get the time. Trying to upgrade my armour to G-Rank, which is proving to be a tough task.

Philip J Reed

I'll be shocked if anyone doesn't say Animal Crossing: New Leaf. It's my first Animal Crossing game (I was won over by Katy's fantastic review) and it's adorable. As of this writing I haven't done much but sleep in a pup tent, but I'm already in love. Also, when I first arrived in my new town I was handed a pink floral shirt and Peach's Parasol, so the game obviously has a pretty strong grasp on me as a person.

Ron DelVillano

Yeah, yeah, I'll be among the many constantly checking in on his town in Animal Crossing: New Leaf this weekend, but there are a few other games that I'm hoping to finally find the time to play through. The one that I'm specifically gunning for is Spec Ops: The Line at the behest of Mr. Wahlgren and some other friends who really want me to experience the story. I'm excited to see how that goes.

I'd also like to get around to finishing Castlevania: Lords of Shadow – Mirror of Fate. It's a game that I put down about a week or so ago, and I keep thinking that I should play it, then I realize that I'm behind on work, or that I need to harvest some virtual fruit, so I haven't gotten back to it. It's a real shame because I was enjoying it quite a bit.

Morgan Sleeper

Dear Nintendo Life:

I'm writing to let you know I've turned over a New Leaf, and I'm not sure when I'll be back. It's just so peaceful here in Twinseed; our village is lined with flowers, we've got an orchard full of exotic and suspiciously valuable fruit, and I've just put the finishing touches on a new town tune! I'm having a wonderful time, but I do find my mayoral duties taking up quite a lot of my days (and nights!) recently. Maybe I'll take a trip to a little island I know - I could take Tails Adventure for a spin for my review, and kick back with Kirby's Dream Course... but then again, we're so close to funding our next big project... maybe just a few more fish... oh, a butterfly!...

Send help,
-Mayor Morgan

Dave Letcavage

I'm not 100% sure what I'll be playing this weekend besides Animal Crossing: New Leaf and Farm Simulator 3D for review. I have so many things on my radar (Luigi U, Chronicles of Mystara, and BioShock Infinite to name a few) but have so little free time coming up. I am hoping to go retro shopping on Friday, and there are a bunch of N64 games I'm looking for, so there very well could be an old-school night happening soon.

Oh, and I would be playing The Last of Us, but I finished it yesterday evening. Word of advice? Play it by any means necessary. It's not quite perfect, but it's phenomenal, regardless.

Stephen Kelly

With absolutely nothing planned for the weekend, I'll be huddled up in a ball at home staving off allergies with the power of video games. This will naturally included bunches of Animal Crossing: New Leaf — something different happens every day in that delightful game — and I might continue my goal of making par on every Mighty Switch Force! 2 time limit. The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past will also take up my time, along with the robot-intensive action of Binary Domain, which I enjoy far more than I probably should. Of course, that's just a small taste of my stupidly large pile of untouched games, so it's entirely possibly that indecision's iron grip will reduce me to a puddle of uncertainty capable of nothing more than watching YouTube videos ad nauseam.

Either way, successful weekend!

Marcel van Duyn

Dungeons & Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara (PC) - The Wii U version suddenly doesn't have a specific release date, so I just got the PC version on Steam instead. Two great arcade beat 'em ups in one package, both with 4-player online co-op, what's not to like? Cleric all day every day.

Gaz Plant

Lego City Undercover: The Chase Begins — While everyone else is playing in a fantasy world of animals and paying mortgages, I'm setting my sights on the more realistic setting of a world inhabited by little plastic people and solving crimes by dressing up as a builder. You know, video games are really weird when you think about it...

GRID 2 (PS3) — Probably the most disappointing game I've played this year, but there's a certain charm to smashing up a McLaren supercar and limping it over the line. Except when you're playing online and getting rammed off...

Phew, a lot going on in our weekends. What about yours? Share your deepest and darkest weekend gaming plans below.

FirebrandMustDie said:

As I've just bought a Wii U last week I'll be playing ZombiU, NintendoLand, Mario Bros U and Sonic Racing Transformed. Packed weekend of fun! Oh and also Animal Crossing New Leaf.



WingedSnagret said:

I've been enjoying Fire Emblem: Blazing Sword, then after that I'll move on to Sacred Stones. I got them both last week and have been having an FE marathon.



Moshugan said:

Haha! Quite predictable, but it's Animal Crossing: New Leaf, New Super Luigi U and Oracle of Ages for me.
A nice variety there, don't you think.



Whopper744 said:

New Leaf of course...maybe some Tails Adventure, and possibly even Sonic Unleashed on the 360 (was on sale for download..)



Hordak said:

Finally going to finish The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. I'm also going to take to twitter and get #SNESon3DS trending. Please help out if you have a twitter account.



ThePirateCaptain said:

Happy Birthday Jon! May it be filled with gaming and bacon.

I'll be playing some more Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon as well as Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance this weekend.



Varia01 said:

Aw darn, my Wii U is in storage. I may play occasionally on my bro's 3DS. So maybe Mario 3D Land and Mario Kart 7.



element187 said:

Probably playing mostly on my 3DS this weekend sadly, since there really isn't anything new to play on my Wii U, except Wii games...

I'm going to continue playing 3D Land casually here and there working on star coins. DKCR on the treadmill. And perhaps I will be play some Galaxy 2 while the wifey is at work.... I did download NSLU, farmed up to x99 1ups, and will be playing the snot out of it Sunday night because Game and Wario's price is too steep for what its offering.



tchaten said:

ACNL I'll be playing for sure. Also taking breaks playing Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D - stuck on final boss battle!

Started playing Luigi U last night and rather enjoying that. Will also pop in Injustice for Wii U and play Majora's Mask on my N64 - a little over half way through (1st play through).

So lots on my agenda this weekend



Dr_42o said:

Must get all of my cars and mods back in NFS: Most Wanted after having prestiged.

Might start LoZ Skyward Sword on Hero Mode for the first time.

To cool off I'll help get some noobs in Trine 2 Director's Cut through some levels.

Beyond that, some Mega Man on VC.



darkfenrir said:

Continue playing with MH3U, I just reached the second rank and managed to defeat G Jaggi (I feel so proud of it, since I haven't changed my armor other than upgrading it once, and I'm only using the Dual Blades that used ingredients from Jaggi)

If not, I'll probably going to play my KI:U again, I'm going to try getting better weapons!



jestermx6 said:

3DS - New Leaf
PS3 - Infamous (yes the first one. i'm stuck in 2007)
XB360 - borderlands (again....the first one. stop judging me!)
Wii U - new super luigi u



Handy_Man said:

Marcel and Gaz are missing out!

Anyway, I'll be playing Animal Crossing: New Leaf and Project M this weekend.



XCWarrior said:

@darkfenrir My Wii U name is XCWarrior if you want to play some MH3U this weekend.
As indicated above, I will continue my slaughtering of massive beasts in Monster Hunter Tri Ultimate on Wii U, or maybe toss it in my 3DS version if we go somewhere. Still trying to finish Zelda II on 3DSVC (So bad, taking so long because I must finish) and Punch Out! on Wii VC. Also still doing Rayman Legends App everyday, improving scores on Nano Assault Neo and the end to Portal 2 is also on my sights.

This of course all is predicated on a baby that is sleeping and not wanting my undivided attention. Good thing he's cute!



Chronoguard said:

I'll mostly be playing ACNL and A Link to the Past this weekend. I might throw in a little Mutant Mudds since I still haven't finished it.



rjejr said:

Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy. The HD trilogy is on sale this week on PSN for $26.99, so I bought it new at Gamestop Wed. for $9.99. Silly PSN prices.

I'm taking my kid to Target tomorrow to play the NSMBU demo. 1 more month until Pikmin 3.



Donald_M said:

Currently I'm dividing my time pretty equally between AC: New Leaf and Fire Emblem: Awakening, along with short daily sessions with Crosswords Plus and Brain Age: Concentration Training. Plenty more games just sitting on my SD, I'll get around to them once Fire Emblem's off my plate. The other three are pretty much part of my daily routine for the foreseeable future.



WiiLovePeace said:

I'm playing NSMBU to completion & replaying Super Mario Galaxy 2 in a new save file even though I already completed it in 2010. Just got a massive 3D Super Mario itch after getting pumped up for Super Mario 3D World. Oh & hopefully some MK64



Rezalack said:

New Leaf and DKCReturns 3DS.. I've had Animal Crossing a week and I'm loving it.



Boxmonkey said:

I just received resident evil revelations through the post. When it gets dark ill put that bad boy in my black box



GiftedGimp said:

Luigi DLC, MHU3, Resident Evil and Zen Pinball..
I finished the excellent Injustice story mode ages ago and am waiting for the matchmaking patch to arrive. Fantastic game marred only by this unbelievable oversight.



GiftedGimp said:

@BoxMonkey, You can still use the pro Controller and have the sound output via the gamepad, even when playing on TV.
The reason I mention this is A), if your not using the gamepad to play, but also and more importantly, B) In WiiU system setting have the gamepad sound set to surround and use headphones to get great surround sound to really get things spooked up.
(surround sound via headset/gamepad also works well on other games that allow gamepad sound output while playing on TV)



Kyloctopus said:

Trine 2 Director's Cut: I originally said I don't like the game for its level up mechanic. However, this game is alot more fitting on Co-op. So if anyone is reading this, and wants to play Co-op, just say something.

I might play some Kirby's Adventure, and get 100% in the game, but I also need to study for my exam.



Kaabiitorori said:

I recently finished Fire Emblem Awakening on Normal – Casual: the best 55 hours I have spent with a video game in a long time, totally worth it! =) I’m planning on taking another playthrough on Lunatic – Classic; wish me luck! XD

Apart from FE Awakening, I gotta start DKC Returns 3D, so I will be alternating between these two on the 3DS. On the Wii U, I would like to pick up New Super Luigi U, but I am currently collecting all the Star Coins and completing the challenges on the main NSMBU game first, so I'm not rushed to buy the expansion.

As for non-Nintendo titles, The Last of Us. Guess it doesn’t need any introduction at all. X3



Peach64 said:

A bit of Animal Crossing, but not too much. I don't want to try and get everything in a month and then never touch it again. Mainly I'm playing Jedi Outcast on Mac and Killer 7 on Gamecube.



EmiMacthePC said:

Well, like almost everyone else, I'll be playing Animal Crossing: New Leaf. And I'll probably play some of my other 3DS games like Kid Icarus: Uprising, Mario Kart 7, etc.



ricklongo said:

I'l be finishing Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D on my 3DS, and moving along with Twilight Princess on my Wii U (hey, it's a fine way to get by until the big games for the system start being released).



hendie001 said:

Clash at demon head, luigi u, final fantasy 3 ds, and final fantasy 7 ps, and final fantsy 4 snes.



TonLoco said:

Animal crossing for sure. I need to get back into Monster Hunter 3 ultimate and get some more quests done. Prolly after work.



DiSTANToblivion said:

My brother just recently finished The Last Of Us, that was amazing. As for me I'm still trying to finish Professor Layton and The Miracle Mask so I can finally move on to Fire Emblem Awakening. I played 4 Layton games practically in a row so I think I'm all Layton'd out and lack the motivation. I missed out on extra puzzles/minigames etc. (don't know if I'll even get back to them).



Bulbousaur said:

Animal Crossing New Leaf, on my fourth day now, and I have my first trade organised for this evening! (just some fruit, nothing super exciting)

I also have Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate to play as well, and I'm in the middle of my Sentinel playthrough of Mass Effect 2. Might also try and do a few missions in Luigi's Mansion 2 and Fire Emblem Awakening.



hYdeks said:

@iMii I'm good, I understood instantly what games your playing

EDIT Bought Okami for Wii brand new at Wal-Mart, be playing that instead

And Amazing Spider-man on's ok shrugs



DiSTANToblivion said:

Oh, and I really need to get back into Injustice. I've also gotten back into play Sonic & Sega All Stars Racing Transformed, more online than anything, no more ghost town online lobbies! Awesome!



Vriess said:

I'll be finishing Deus Ex: Human Revolution on the PC. Complete stealth and no casualties.



FroJake said:

For me, I'll be playing Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine, Sonic the Hedgehog GG, Sonic Blast, Maybe NES Pac-Man. Then while I take a break from 3ds games, I'll boot up Netflix and watch American Dad while either level-grinding my team in Pokemon Leafgreen or play Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Red Rescue Team on the GBA I've had since I was 7 or 8 years old. And to top it off, I might sober up on my addiction on Nintendo and play Ape Escape: On the Loose on PSP, all while listening to Biggie Smalls, George Clinton, and Frank Ocean, while sipping on a complimentary Powerade. I'm doing all of this because I've got too much time on my hands and I don't know when to quit, man...



Captain_Balko said:

An Animal Crossing filled weekend for me. So much New Leaf that I overdose. And between checks on my town, I'll finally finish off DK Country Returns 3D. I've been having some trouble with the last world, been finding it pretty difficult. My 95 lives have dropped to around 70.

Also, if I've got time, some Luigi U and on Sunday, Game and Wario, baby!



bahooney said:

I would be playing the Streetpass Mii Plaza DLC, but we all know how America was randomly left out. Never going to get over that.



Auracle said:

Happy B-Day @Jon! Make sure you fling a Fronk for me in Game & Wario.

While New Leaf will take up a chunk of my time, I also plan to finish up Oracle of Ages and NPC! Pikmin 2. @Ideal_Hero and I also plan to march on for science in Portal 2 co-op.



SetupDisk said:

I got new leaf and the Luigi dlc but it`s monster hunter for me. Just got to G-Rank where the real game begins.



MasterWario said:

I've played tons of Etrian Odyssey 4 this week, so I think it's time to put that down and get back to the Fire Emblem Awakening. Both of these game are so long, so I will probably be able to switch back between them for quite some time into the future.
Oh, and I might play some Pikmin 2; trying to do a no reset run, and so far I've lost only one Pikmin (so sad ).



sonic_brawler95 said:

The big games I'll be playing this weekend will be Animal Crossing New Leaf, The Last of Us, and New Super Luigi U. I'll also try to squeeze in time for Tails Adventures and maybe a little Mega Man.



NickStrife23 said:

I rented New Leaf to see if I like it so... thats pretty much all Im playing,,, Hope to actually get it on Sunday, Ill be 15!!



GooRoo said:

Work is killer this weekend, but there's always time for a little New Leaf, a bit of post-story adventure in Lego City Undercover, and a few levels of LuigiU!



BoyFromMars82 said:

Hopefully finishing up Super Mario Bros U and if there is time, a bit of NBA 2K13 which came in the post today!



baba_944 said:

Tails Adventure (first time since Gamecube. Gamecube controls suck) MArio Kart 64 and Startrpoics (first time playing it. Love it.) How do I pass the lava boss in the third chapter in Startropics?



baba_944 said:

Tails Adventure (first time since Gamecube. Gamecube controls suck) Mario Kart 64 and Startrpoics (first time playing it. Love it.) How do I pass the lava boss in the third chapter in Startropics?

EDIT: Also Super Mario Galaxy. Save state got deleted so I have to do it all over with my sister.



Pokefanmum82 said:

Playing some Pokemon Black 2 (restarted it) and try to get my save file in FEA back to chapter 7 since one of my kids deleted it. Maybe some Oracle of Seasons too.



Tangoswthbowser said:

I'll be trying to get my homies together tomorrow and throw down on some NSMBU... and beer. Then I'll try to get to High Rank on MH3U, and if I find the time I'll be fixing my N64 controllers so as to have a reason to dust off all those game cart's on the shelf.



TheN64Dude said:

Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones (3DS)
Finishing up Mother (NES) (THANK FRIKIN GOD!!!!)
New Super Luigi U
Mario Kart 7 with friends on Skype
MAYBE Conker's Bad Fur Day (N64)



NorthLightSuplx said:

Star Coin and secret exit hunting in New Super Mario Bros. U and Animal Crossing: New Leaf......ALWAYS Animal crossing: new leaf



Oh_Well said:

In general, I try to finish whatever game I'm currently playing before starting a new one, but I'm just not that into Deus Ex: Human Revolution. I may have to abandon the good fight in favor of The Last of Us, which has been sitting unopened on my shelf for a week now. I've also been really meaning to play Link's Awakening, which has been haunting my backlog for like 10 years.



mookysam said:

Getting towards the end of Tomb Raider. Meticulously crafted and insanely polished Uncharted clone but ultimately lacking soul.
Once I've finished that I'm gonna get back into God of War III and Skyrim so I can then buy The Last of Us.

On the handheld front playing Oracle of Ages. Tis good.



Giygas_95 said:

Everybody's playing New Leaf! Including me. And when it's not eating up my time like a ravenous animal, I'll be playing Mega Man 6, Lego City Undercover, Super Little Acorns 3D Turbo, and New Super Luigi U. AAAARRRRRGH TOO MANY GAMES!

@JonWahlgren I used the dream suite to go take a look at your town, sir. It was nice! Happy birthday by the way!



ghall said:

Animal Crossing New Leaf, and New Super Luigi U. Maybe continue my second play through of Fire Emblem Awakening.



Stark_Nebula said:

Metroid Prime. I was saving it for after Other M but got bored of it and went ahead. I regret nothing. I'll also probably play some GX and Wind Waker.



bizcuthammer said:

I'll mostly be playing Animal Crossing: New Leaf. But when i get the time, i'll fire up my N64 and play conker's bad fur day. I bought it a week ago online for $40, cause i never played it and felt like i'd missed out. I've only been able to play about an hour so far, so i'm hoping to get more playtime in this weekend.



Superconsole said:

@Phil You're too nice!

For the record, I was too busy remodeling my Animal Crossing house to contribute to this article - Sorry Tom ;D



jpfan1989 said:

3DS: Harverst Moon3D : a new beginning
Xbox 360: Bioshock Infinite
I should also finish Xenoblade, I haven't booted up the Wii in a while.



Tasuki said:

Going to be playing some World of Warcraft and some Torchlight which I got for free from Good Old Games. Also might finally beat Super Metroid if I get the time.



gaby_gabito said:

New Super Luigi U, Resident Evil Revelations, Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, Mutant Mudds Deluxe



ZidanU said:

I just got New Super Luigi U but already finished it! So I'll just unlock all World 9 levels. I'm also still going to finish Luigi's Mansion 2. And I'm planning to pick up New Leaf. Do you guys recommend it? I'm a 14 year old boy



arderin64 said:

On Wii U I'll be playing Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Batman: Arkham City, Sonic & All Stars Racing: Transformed. Also in the past hour I've finally got past the section in ZombiU where you are in an arena fighting off hordes of the undead with no backpack. I got stuck there a few months ago & after getting killed copious times left the game aside for a bit, so I guess having done that I'll have to sink a few hours into old ZombiU. Maybe a bit of Nintendoland if I get time.



JonWahlgren said:

@DRL Yep! Well sorta. My birthday is Monday so this weekend is when I'll be doing all the fun social stuff. Happy birf to you too!

@True_Hero Thanks! I'll chuck some for/at you.

@Five_seveN Cool, glad you liked it! I need to update it, actually...



MAB said:

It's funny how last week everyone was hating Nintendo for not having mature games now ACNL is the game everyone is playing all over the world (huge sales)

NSLU, Monster Hunter, Resi Evil Raid mode

Shining Force, Defender of Oasis, Tails Adventure



CanisWolfred said:

@Morgan You so funny.

Unfortunately, I'll be returning Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate to the Library (no renewals on games...), so I'll probably try to get back into Etrian Odyssey IV with some New Super Mario Bros. U on the side. Oh yeah, I'll probably play some Shining Force on 3DS VC, too! I'm still on the first level...



B3ND3R said:

Well, looks like I'll be playing Dead Island on Steam with a friend for a good bit... Other than that, I'll be playing Xenoblade (2nd playthrough ), The Last Story (1st-ish.. I got a good bit into it on the Wii, but since the Wii U transfer I have to start over...), and Pandora's Tower (just picked it up about 20 minutes ago, sealed )... I have a fun weekend ahead Unless I get sucked into more DayZ with a bunch of my friends again..



B3ND3R said:

Oh! And I am picking up Project X Zone Tuesday! Since it's summer, every day is a weekend unless I've got work..



CrimsonMoonMist said:

Got around to finally starting up Persona 3 once again,
25 hours in and still lovin' it.
Tried to play it immediately after finishing Persona 4 some years ago,
but I just saw everyone in the game as replacements for the P4 cast and couldn't get into it.



Schprocket said:

Fire Emblem: Awakening - when I get the time, and/or possibly introduce myself to Pikmin (Wii) having picked it up a couple of weeks ago.

Pre-ordered a bunch of Wii U titles: Smash Bros, Super Luigi, Wonderful 101, and MK8 bringing my pre-order backlog total to eight... I now want to pre-order about six-months off to play them all!



Jairo_MC said:

This weekend I hope to beat The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword. I know I'm very late, but I'm finally on the last quest.
I will also play Animal Crossing: New Leaf as it is taking a lot more of my time than I was expecting. It's just so much fun!
Then, if I can finish Zelda, I will play The Last of Us.



shonenjump86 said:

Animal Crossing on 3DS. I want to play the Last of Us and Injustice but I may not have time for those this weekend.



Giygas_95 said:

@JonWahlgren Despite the name, it didn't seem trashy at all to me! I did cut down all your trees though. Good thing for you that it was just a dream! Also, it tickled me to no end when one of the characters referred to it as "dreamy Trash."



Hunter-D said:

Animal Crossing: New Leaf
Fire Emblem: Awakening

and maybe, maybe some DKCR3D!

By the way, @zipmon I applaud you my good sir! That delivery... very funny! and this bit at the end had me in stitches.

"Send help,
-Mayor Morgan"



Rekiotsu said:

I'll be playing God of War 2 on Ps2, Trine 2 on pc (because it was on sale in steam) and Skyrim.



Mahe said:

So far, these:

Batman: Brave and the Bold
Streetpass Quest II

Still plenty of time for more!



SanderEvers said:

Guild Wars 2 (PC),
Monster Hunter 3 (Wii U),
New Super Luigi U,
Animal Crossing,
Fire Emblem.

And maybe some PC games.



readyletsgo said:

Just received my new super slim PS3 from amazon so that's my weekend sorted with all the free ps+ games and stuff, yay!



Harrison_Peter said:

I'm also playing some non-Nintendo system games but because it's Nintendo Life I'll share what Nintendo goodness I'm playing this weekend. Mostly Animal Crossing New Leaf (, Mario Kart 7 occasionally, the original Metroid, and 9 Hours, 9 Persons, 9 Doors. I have a bunch of great games to play, like Fire Emblem: Awakening, but I don't like having too much on at once and I'm saving the rest of Awakening (I did start it) for after I've finished 999.



Harrison_Peter said:

@readyletsgo Brilliant, PS3 is one of my all-time favourite consoles up there with SNES and N64. Great time to get it. Like Nintendo, it has some awesome exclusives too



GreatPlayer said:

Continue to perfectionize my skills in Sonic Transformed so as to compete online. I also play Mario Galaxy 1 but I start to get bored of it. Nintendo, please send us more games!



F4LLEND4RK said:

Mario Kart Wii & Skyward Sword, I always seem to go back and play the last version of a game when a new one gets released ;D



DarkNinja9 said:

i feel so out of placed xD im still playing pokemon black 2! but hoping to get Luigi U soon



Vann said:

Just got Animal Crossing for the 3DS. Its amazing how soothing and fun it can be.
I'll be also playing a lot of Fire Emblem (3DS), my first playthrough on Hard/Classic, and i think im managing myself, with some resets needed here and there, but if i get stressed out I'll switch to new leaf again.
Maybe some No more heroes (got it about two weeks ago, and its really fun) or Fire emblem Radiant Dawn (which is my favourite of the series, next to Awakening).
Still haven't finished skyward sword, although i have to admit its a superb polished Nintendo experience. Maybe I'll pick that later this weekend



Emaan said:

This weekend I'll be playing:

Unfortunately, I just found out I'm going to have to send off my Wii U for a repair because of a gamepad syncing problem. I'll just be playing my 3DS for the next week or so.

Shining Force (MD) on Wii VC, d/l'd & started a while ago (up to chapter 4), will finish it before starting GG version. Completed both SF games on MD back in the day, GG version will be new to me.
Also a bit more NSMBU, want to finish main game, before getting New Super Luigi U
And just because I like it (even though my backlog hates it) some Rockband 3 (Wii).



Moshugan said:

BTW, why are the newer 3DS eShop titles cheaper than the older ones?
Animal Crossing, Mario&Sonic, Donkey Kong, Lego City etc. are all 39,99€ as opposed to some older games like Fire Emblem, Ocarina of Time, Mario Kart 7 etc. which are still 44,99€.
So what's the logic behind the pricing?

I'm playing Animal Crossing New Leaf (Obviously ) and The Last of Us on PS3. Also, this is sort of off topic, but I'm seeing Monsters University tonight.

Like damn near everyone else, Animal Crossing: New Leaf has it's claws in me and it looks like it won't let go anytime soon. However, I'm also managing to play my way through Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D and just entered into the Forest Stage. I may try to play up the last remaining times I have left of the Project X Zone demo since the full version will be heading my way next week.
