Once again, we find ourselves at the end of another week, and now it's time for Team Nintendo Life to gather 'round and discuss all of the lovely games we'll be playing over the next couple of days. We've got demon slaying, RPG beating, and even some real-life Pokémon catching on the agenda this week, so make sure to give our entries a read and then provide your own via the comments and poll below. Enjoy!

Aside from spending every waking moment making my way through a game for review purposes, I'll likely actually give most of my gaming time this weekend to Pokémon GO. Today (Saturday) sees another Community Day taking place - actually starting at the very moment this article goes live in my region - and I'll be heading out to snag myself a whole lot of Cyndaquil (and hopefully several shinies, too).
I hadn't played GO for over a year or more but, over the last month or two, I've found myself completely hooked once again. The last Community Day was a great experience and seeing so many people wandering around town and bonding over the same game in real life was great to behold. Hopefully the weather's actually nice enough for everyone to head outside again!

I’ve been busy slaying demons throughout the week in Diablo III: Eternal Collection, so I guess I’ll continue on with that this weekend. As I’ve already played the game a few times elsewhere prior to the Switch release, I’m pacing myself a little more on this third run. I’m also thoroughly enjoying raising the dead with the Necromancer class, which I previously hadn’t tried out until now.
As for my free-to-play fix, I intend to spend some time with Brawlhalla before Super Smash Bros. Ultimate arrives. From what I have played so far, it’s not bad. The addition of Ubisoft’s iconic mascot Rayman makes it even better (provided you can cough up the required amount of in-game gold). Last of all, I’ll be taking a look at Night Slashers, which is the latest release in the Johnny Turbo collection. It sort of has a Final Fight vibe about it, except set in a world filled with monsters and the undead. There are apparently even bonus games including whack-a-zombie and undead bowling – it sounds thrilling!

This weekend I'll be getting my cartoon RPG on with the colourful sci-fi escapade that is Crashlands on Nintendo Switch. I'll also be testing out Carnival Games (don't laugh) with the help of my eldest, so expect some lovely words from me on both of those next week on Nintendo Life.
I've also got a hankering for some Spyro, what with the Reignited Trilogy round the corner, so I think it's time to fire up the GameCube for some classic dragon action.

I’m pretty sure I’m going to lose my status as a legitimate Nintendo fan for this - but I’m going to be purchasing Splatoon 2 for the first time, and will probably become addicted and play it the entire weekend. I’ve obviously played often with friends, but never owned it myself. As sad as it is, I tend to avoid most competitive shooter games, partially because they give me some anxiety (I live in the US - enough said). However, Splatoon is probably the most whimsical and innocent shooter game you could play - and my friends have convinced me that it’s time to bite the bullet (or, ink) and get into this game. So this is my goal for the weekend. Stop judging me - I’m working on it, people!

Remember, remember the month of November whose insane release schedule has caught up to my weekend plans - and I believe it will break both my wallet and some sort of personal record for the number of monthly Switch pick-ups. I spent most of the week doing Squad Stories on Valkyria Chronicles 4 (including some swimsuit DLC shenanigans) so I hope to actually progress the main campaign this weekend. Maybe, just maybe complete all the campaigns in Starlink: Battle for Atlas. I have pacified two of the three sectors on the system and am in a very favourable position to assault the third, hardest one.
Yet this week it was on the eShop that the unexpected goods showed up. I will be taking on sporadic doses of Road Redemption, Saboteur!, Rogue Legacy, The Bug Butcher, Trine and the TRON-tastic Battlezone Gold Edition. Classic Mode on that last one is a particularly zen experience… at least until you realise there are online leaderboards and everyone is Billy Mitchell.
My game of the week is obviously Astebreed. You might wonder why I would be so excited to spend a weekend with a game that is three years old, but it is not a very exciting mystery to solve: I had no clue the game existed before being announced on the Switch. Kindly pass me the giant metal sword.

This weekend I'm going to take a trip down memory lane. First on my list is the glorious homage to all things Game Boy (and my second favourite type of cephalopod) Save me Mr Tako! I've been following the game for a couple of years and it's great to finally see it out in the wild. Second, while I wait for Metroid to release on Nintendo Switch Online, I'm going to dabble in the rest of the franchise again to get back in the groove, and giddily anticipate news of the fourth instalment. You know Christmas is coming up, Nintendo? If we have to wait till E3 that would just be mean!

Taking Diablo with me to work!!!
Gave Brawlhalla a try, interesting fighter but it’s whoever can press the a or y button the fastest, not actual skill, that wins the game. Regardless, it’s still a fun time for a free game. Probably gonna play more BOTW this weekend too, my limited game selection allows for multiple play throughs of large games like Zelda.
I've found this intriguing little title at the back of my Switch case. It's called Breath of the Wild I think, and according to my profile I've already played 150hrs+, but I'm finding that hard to believe as playing it this morning in bed felt so wondrous that it may as well be a new game.
Road Redemption. Loading is a pain but this game is great fun and it’s brutal. Decent challenge and hilarious crashes.
My girl and I will be playing a lot of Diablo 3 over the weekend (wireless play). I'm still working my way through Dark Souls Remastered and RDR2 also.
Breath of the Wild, Splatoon 2 and possibly Golf Story.
I've been getting stuck right into BOTW these past few days. After abandoning the Wii U version at about 60% completion when I got my Switch, I'd barely touched the Switch version despite buying the DLC the day it came out. I initially started with the Master Quest but found it to be too much hassle.
Splatoon 2, I can't get enough of. I'm as hooked as I was with the original. It's my go to game now.
Golf Story I finally bought in the sale a couple of weeks ago. Really looking forward to it but might hang off on starting it until I put some more time into other games. I've abandoned my farm in Stardew Valley these past 2 weeks so I might return to that instead.
I'm playing Dragon's Curse.
This is the PCengine version of Wonderboy III the dragon's trap and I love it.
Might give Townsman a go. One of my all time favorite games is pharoh on the pc. Egypt city building game with god like effects. Been wanting a simalar type game for the switch and by the videos ive watched doesnt look to bad. Has anyone played it yet to give me an update on if its any good.
@TheFanatic from the games i have played..... you need a ton of skill. Smash bros clone. Its free. Its fun. Until ultimate comes out
Today is for Diablo and Dark Souls.
Have just reached Blighttown....
Playing diablo 3 but not sure if it will hold much longer. Finished the campaign and currently doing adventure mode on hard but the gameplay is very button masher and boring without a story do go with it. Let's see if I can find a hidden gem on the eshop
I will be playing golf story and kirby star allies,
I hope to get save me mr tako also.
Finished battle chasers last weekend (loved it!) and bought world of ff maxima this week. Even though it is a bit blurry in handheld mode, it still looks gorgeous on the small screen and it is also great for playing it commuting to/from work. Highly recommended if u liked the atb battle system in the older entries (even though u can also play it strictly turn based if u want to). Catching and developing mirages does not get old!
Dark Souls, Dragon Ball FighterZ and Undertale for me.
Diablo III for me I think. I find it a bit grindy at times but I can’t stop playing.
I’ve picked up Rogue Legacy this week too, if I can put down Diablo.
I got a few lighter days ahead of me. I'll try to get through a multitude of shorter games. I've got a few games in my backlog for the weekend: Ys III: Wanderers from Ys for the TGCD, SuperStar Saga + Bowser's Minions for the 3DS and Luigi's Mansion for the 3DS. I may also finish Steamworld Dig at last.
This week I will be mostly playing
Kirby’s Adventure Wii (return to Dream Land)
Pokémon SoulSilver (return to Kanto)
Still playing dark souls and it’s still awesome
Lunar: Silver Star Story Complete on PS1 (I sense Lunar 1 & 2 coming to Switch after Grandia 1 & 2. PS1 and Sega CD versions please!) Also some Diablo 3 and Splatoon 2 (love the new Salmon Run map) sprinkled in there.
Playing through Octopath Traveler again.
Also catching lots of pokémon for Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu next week.
Going back to Super Meat Boy !
Splatoon if I get the time, mario tennis aces left me 10 minutes waiting for a game yesterday. Otherwise solitaire on my phone
Just Shapes & Beats
The hype over Civilization 6's upcoming Switch release reminded me that I haven't played Civ 5 in a very long time, so I've been playing that incessantly over the past week. Just started a new game as Catherine, going for a cultural victory.
Will go back to Starlink when I need a break from empire building. And of course, the traditional multiplayer with my kid, mostly ARMS and Puyo Puyo Tetris.
The Switch had replaced my Xbox for the last year and a half. It's basically a glorified Netflix box these days. But Red Dead has tempted me back. So will be playing that a lot but will jump back to fifa 19 and nba 2k19 for breaks every now and then on Switch.
Animal Crossing mobile game and probably some of the Wii games I am working on.
Red dead and starlink
I went back to dead Cells last week and can now reach the final boss consistently. He is sooo damn hard - anyone got any tips?
Also got back into super meat boy which is a great game. Stuck on the last level before the final boss though.
I think I'm actually going to play some smash 4 to start practicing for ultimate. Then some odyssey, to slowly inch myself closer to all the power moons now that I completed the game
I’ll be doing a fair amount of hacking, slashing, and ground stomping in Dead Cells. And lurking around the eshop agonizing over whether to pull the trigger on Hyper Light Drifter and n++. I’ve been acquiring games faster than I can play them.
I also have this interactive game called Cat, which is currently meowing at me to put down my Pro Controller and toss a mouse.
Many games on my switch wishlist at the moment. But got my hands full with black obs 4 and red dead 2.
Tetris Effect, Red Dead Redemption 2, Fire Emblem: Shadow of Valentia, Okami, Assassin's Creed Odyssey, and others.
Starting on Undertale... after 120+ hours with Octopath Traveler. Also play Splatoon 2.... have to experience all new weapons and stages. Oh... try to finish Sine Mora EX after abandoned for some time.
Just beat Celeste and now I’m getting after Dark Souls!
(With a smattering of toying with the new Splatoon goodies.)
I'll be getting in some Octopath Traveler, as usual. Over 25 hours in, and still only completed 10 of 40 chapters. Gulp. Who said it was a 40-50-hour game?
Having a Switch has really reignited my love of portable gaming. I bought my first DS just a few months ago, and this week I stumbled across my old PSP (launch model!) in the attic, which I haven't touched in roughly 10 years. Seriously considering downloading Persona 3 Portable for it now.
@Judgedean How is this game? The music sounds fantastic and the visuals superb, only thing keeping me from purchasing was uncertainty about the gameplay.
I've restarted DKC Tropical Freeze. I'm at 161% completion and will plough on through the weekend. Wonderful game that keeps on giving.
@gcunit I am constantly opening this game knowing I will be enchanted from the moment I select my save file... that sound is like a hit of morphine, your game starts loading, and the screen goes black while the ambient audio kicks in...
Lots of gaming time planned as I'm off work for a week.
So games that will be getting a good chunk of my time will be:
Dragon Quest XI.
Lego Ninjago Movie Videogame.
Torna-The Golden Country.
Resident Evil Revelations.
@Pirlo_ze_sniper I get some Switch time at work myself!
Playing Dark Souls and MHGU.
1. Portal Knights (Switch)
Building my town on Creative Mode after got update version 1.5.3.
2. K-1 Pocket GrandPrix (GBA)
Played for several Rounds to experience my Nostalgia.
3. Dance Dance Revolution Ace
I'm playing Dance Dance Revolution Ace on Nintendo Switch for the first time !
AAA Great Full Combo !!
JUST KIDDING !!
Actually i was watching Dance Dance Revolution Ace gameplay from Switch Youtube & i was pretending playing DDR A on my Switch.
@JamesR very impressive. I love that game. Giving it a break for now (at 89%). Jumped back into BOTW master mode, found love in treasure hunting the DLC.nit going to use them as it's a bit game breaking imo. Oh and also Dr. Mario
Lumines remastered and honestly a little Tetris attack on the snes. Been craving puzzle games lately. And TA might be my favorite of all time.
@Retr0gamedad Curious if you ever played Tetrisphere on the N64? I rank it no. 1 among Tetris remixes. Sadly, it was underappreciated at the time and is now all but forgotten. Would be thrilled by a remaster.
Actually still own a copy of tetrisphere. Haven’t dusted it off in such a long time but I may need to based on your recommendation.
Just grabbed a physical copy of penny punching princess. So far it’s fun despite being a little fiddly with its use of touchscreen mid battle.
The little time I’ve got free this weekend is for Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2. I’ve had that game abandoned for months but I’ve started playing again recently and I’m enjoying it now much more than before.
Shovel Knight: Shovel of Hope on Switch.
Played some Final Fight, i don't know why, I just never seem to get bored of that game...something very therapeutic about it. I might actually buy Okami HD this weekend now that I've finally got an SD card.
@Retr0gamedad Just watched some gameplay footage on YouTube and it brought back all the feelings! Enjoy!
Xenoblade 2 (just started, it's been sitting in my backlog even though I have the collectors edition xDD) and Splatoon 2 (the game increasing my backlog daily xD)
Pokémon Go has me hooked too. I love being rewarded for just walking around.
I’m also in a big Smash Bros mood (27 days left!), so I’ll probably play a lot of Smash Melee (I finally unlocked everyone!), Smash 3DS, and Brawlhalla.
And maybe something completely random! ARMS, Earthbound, who knows!
Everyone have a safe, fun, and blessed weekend! 😃
@OorWullie I found when I finally started playing Golf Story I couldn’t put it down. Fantastic game. Also got over 20 hours out of it which was a great deal considering I picked it up on sale.
Red Dead Redemption 2. I probably won’t play much else until Dec 7th.
Sonic Mania Plus
Had a couple of rounds on Splatoon 2, as not played it since the recent update. Otherwise, Red Dead 2 has got me back in a Rockstar frame of mind, so I've booted up GTA V and been having a great time with that. In terms of how we'll made they are and the amount and variety of things to do, the best of Rockstar is up there with the best of Nintendo for me. Speaking of which, spotted LA Noire for £12.99 in Argos on Switch if anyone fancies a bargain.
Mega Man games are so brutally difficult, but I’ve been enjoying Mega Man 11 and its Beginner difficultly option. I get to enjoy the game at a leisurely pace without pressure.
Dark souls, got past capra demon. Now i think I'm supposed to head towards the sewers but im not sure. Well see! Ill also dabble in save me Mr Tako, smb3 and lastly some brawlhalla which has turned out to be fun. But I'm still wondering why I can't seem to find shovel knight as a playable character ? Thought he was in this game
@Fake-E-Lee you are very enthusiastic about your games, I love it! You remind me of @JaxonH, I love his comments too.
I'll be jumping between Diablo III and Night Slashers myself. Diablo III has been so chill to play so far while having something going on the TV like the NFL.
Splatoon 2 and torturing myself playing undertale...trying to kill sans...I'm having a bad time 😣
Diablo III and Dark Souls. I’m a little bit tempted at finally buying Kirby for Switch...
Monster Hunter Gen Ultimate
Red Dead 2
World of Final Fantasy
Nobody is talking about WoFF??? It's like it never even released.
Not much as far as Nintendo stuff goes this particular weekend; continuing Kingdom Hearts on PS4 and also some Silent Hill via the Vita.
Diablo 3 (Switch)
LoZ: ALBW (3DS)
Diablo 3 (Switch)
Castlevania II: Simon's Quest
Diablo 3 (Switch)
(I'm REALLY going to be playing Diablo 95% of the time)
Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Soul Calibur 6, Tekken 7, and Street Fighter 5 for PS4. I’m going old school with Switch playing Capcom Beat em Up Bundle, some Neo Geo games and Night Slashers. I might sneak in Super Mario Odyssey and SNK Heroines.
@Jiya what do you have to do in lets go when you load all your go pokemon into it? I dont understand that
It's that time of year again...Christmas music is playing, the fireplace is crackling, the wind is howling...it's time for my annual Holiday playthrough of the greatest game of all time...A Link to the Past! It's my irrational tradition to play that game once every holiday season. I've been doing it since I was 11 years old!
@Bombdotorg999 Agreed. I tried to use the regular controls but I found that harder than touch screen. I find it a bit awkward but maybe it just takes getting used to?
Probably Red Dead Redemption 2 and maybe a little Night in the Woods. Tomorrow my sister's gonna come visit me and watch me play The Last of Us since she likes good stories.
@Eef I see Night in the Woods, I click the heart button. Seriously hope you enjoy the game. It's the perfect game for this time of year (best if you play it starting around October 24 which is when I believe the game actually begins).
@Quarth I personally regretted buying Kirby at full price. Maybe there’s a deal for Black Friday? I got 8 hours of the story mode and couldn’t bring myself to play through the alternative solo mode once beaten.
I spent money on a handful of eshop sales including 1979 Revolution and Elena Temple. Ben playing the latter and it’s quite fun. Other than that I’ve been playing the old standbys off and on, Mega Man 11 and Shovel Knight. While I’ve completed most of SK there are still some Feats I feel I can accomplish.
I’m finally going to give South Park FBW a go on Switch. While waiting for the patch I just got busy with other games. Hopefully it’s as good as people say!
Resident Evil 5 and Soul Calibur II for the Xbox x and Brawlhilla for the switch.
Lunar 2, PS1 game played on the PS3.
I unfortunately never got around to DQ IV on my work trip as the pull of the pages of Tolkien's War of the Ring was too great. (I've just moved onto The Two Towers )
This weekend will have more Luigi's Mansion on 3DS after taking a slight break due to not bringing it with me. On the Wii U front, I plan to finally start Golden Sun: The Lost Age on the VC. It's been almost a year since I played the first Golden Sun, so I want to start in on it before the plot falls to my mental fog. XD
Taiko no Tatsujin: Drum 'n' Fun
Next week will be all about Pokémon.
I'm still in xenoblade 2, I've been playing it since September, the game is huugeee, probably gonna focus on it since I'm getting pokemon lets go eevee Thursday, so i should try to finish xenoblade, so i won't get the stories mixed
Super Mario Bros 3 and Broforce. Wonderful games.
I'm doing what I've been doing for a week now, playing throw Metal Gear Sold: Peace Walker again, this time on my Vita, with a plugin to enable full dual analog controls and increase framerate from 20 to 30 FPS, feels like a new game. Currently doing post game stuff, completing Zeke modules and design specs.
Hopefully I can get a few rounds of Super Mario Party in with the family. So much fun, even though the CPU cheats like a mother clucker!
@ilikeike what a wonderful tradition with a wonderful game.
Astebreed, Break Thru and Black Bird
Rocket Leeeeeague! And Morrowind.
never thought I could find a game like Gauntlet I could love as much as the original Gauntlet, but I do have to say, my love of Gauntlet and tabletop RPG's rolled into one game
All I can say for Diablo is....
"Hell On Earth Is Heaven To Me !!! LOL
@Eef Night in the Woods is the kind of game I obsess over and want a sequel for. There aren't many games that do that to me, but I want to see what happens next!
Anyway, maybe come on back here after you finish it and tell me what you thought of it!
Splatoon 2 and Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Super Mario Galaxy 2 if I have time.
@Fake-E-Lee @Nemodius wait..diablo 3 is like a gauntlet game!? That was one of my favorite games growing up on the nes..
I'll play Bloodstained to suffer a little with some old school platforming
Played a couple of hours of Luigis Mansion on the 3DS last night. And seeing as my wife is out later on tonight, I will probably play some Call Of Duty WW2 on the Xbox One, and no doubt some Warriors Orochi on the Switch tomorrow evening at some point
1. RedDead2 (PS4, At home)
2. Valkyria4 (Switch, on the go)
Preloaded, Battlefield V (PC) thinking I could play today but I guess I do not have the right version... need to wait till the 15TH 🤔🤨🙄
Resident Evil Revelations 2 on Switch.
@gcunit Yeah, whenever I play Breath of the Wild I'm blown away by how much I like it and want to keep running and flying around in it's world! I've been playing RDR2, but Breath of the Wild is such a superior creation!
I'm definitely playing Super Mario Maker, both 3ds and Wii u. Also Advance Wars 2 on Wii u, as well as Advance Wars on 3DS via a DS cartridge. Pikmin 3 will get some quality playtime too! Oh, and Warioware Gold! I'll also play some Mr Tako please save me, Diablo 3, Kingdom New Lands(a game that has epic staying power for me, I just love playing it), Redout, and Panzer Dragoon Orta.
@Fake-E-Lee sounds Great! Gauntlet:✔ golden axe: ✔, mmo: un✔ as I'm not sure what that is lol. None the less though i kinda wish i Would've bought the game. I have like $70 worth of eshop credit but i like using that credit on indies and small file size games. Maybe I'll ask for the physical once Xmas rolls around! Thanks again dude! Btw have you gotten into brawlhalla yet?
@Medic_alert hey dude got another one for ya, I keep hearing about blight town. Is that the last area of the game before the big bad? I'm just about to go through the sewers area after capra and wondering how much more i have left in the game
Nothing until Pokemon let’s go
@Fake-E-Lee good man, keep it up, I'm just the same!
Good ol’ blightown. Love it
No it’s not the last area before the final boss. It’s just an area where u can die quickly due to toxic and poison everywhere
@Mgene15 ughhhhhh looks like I'll be sinking a good 30 or 40 hours into the game. Think I'm at 15-20
Valkyria Chronicles 4 and Ace Attorney: Spirit of Justice.
Although I've made almost no headway in the main plot of VC4 all week. Too busy perfecting previous missions, completing squad stories, and pretty soon I'll be playing some of the DLC.
Same here , I put mega man 11 at the easier difficulty level and am enjoying it lots
@Oscarzxn how are you finding it so far? I loved the first one on 3DS, picked up 2 for Switch over Halloween but I haven't had a chance to get stuck in as yet.
Games terrific, I put over 100 hours in it. I was genuinely frightened to go into blightown at first. It’s not a welcoming area haha
@Medic_alert got it thanks again.
@Mgene15 hahaha now im scared to enter!
Diablo and Dark Souls, just waitin for pokemon.
Been playing me some deltarune. New game made by Toby Fox, guy who created Undertale, though not complete yet, its free and really good IMO, like I have as much hype for this game as I do for Smash Bros.
@xpromisedx To me it’s more about getting the Eevee version exclusives.
Might’ve been a good idea to mention that from the start. My bad.
Honestly, I haven't gotten to hold either Switch we have since Fortnite launched. 🤨😐
@Mgene15 Yeah, I can see why it's famous lol.
I have a Drake sword, Spider shield and Elite guard armor but I'm still struggling there.
My level is around 40....
Is that normal to struggle so much in that area?
Diablo III, this is my 3rd purchase of the game, but the Switch version is my favorite.
Yeah it’s normal to struggle there. You’ll want to go with around 15 blooming plants to take care of the toxic damage. I made sure I was there at level 55 just to be safe lol.
@Captain_EO I have enjoyed it quite a bit, it's pretty similar to the first one for the most part though you are not in an interconected place aymore and the full action segments are gone, now it's more linear and centered in action/survival.
Debating on buying world of final fantasy actually. So
@Fake-E-Lee glad you’re enjoying Diablo. I am for the same reasons. I have to admit I was a little deflated when I’d just got it and you were skipping. As I said before, I must trust your tastes!
@gcunit Just curious, how are you still finding BotW wondrous after 150 hours? Not trying to question you, I'm just trying to see what I'm missing on my second playthrough of BotW. I played about 140 hours on my Wii U and loved it, but on my second playthrough with DLC on Switch (which is currently about 60 hours or so), I'm struggling to find things to do that seem interesting. A lot of things I already did in the Wii U playthrough (free all 4 divine beasts, beat Ganon, did most of the shrines at 100 shrines completed, did a good chunk of side quests, found all memories, etc.) I'm also encountering in my Switch playthrough and I'm finding them tedious since I've already done them.
Wandersong and Picross S2.
Monster hunter generations ultimate grind!
Road rash redemption.......on my xmas list.
Capcom beat em up..........on my xmas list.
So far, played a little bit of Blade Strangers, a little bit of Dead Cells, and a whole lotta Dust.
@OorWullie I played tenge heckers out of Golf Story - so charming and fun. I got stuck - as I always seem to and abandoned it. Been long enough to start again though . Thanks for the reminder
@nofriendo Still playing through Story Mode. The music is great and not too difficult.
@60frames-please Wowsers, that's quite an itinerary you've got - I'm jealous. Have fun!
@shadow-wolf I be really explain it I'm afraid, it's just a game I've loved since the first minute. I just love the environment (and most things about the game), and I'm currently using the Hero's Path feature to move through places I've not been to before. Just returned to the Great Plateau for the first time since departing it 100hrs+ ago and reflecting on how much better Link is equipped to withstand the journey now. I'm not sure I'll ever tire of it.
@Medic_alert trust me i know. I'm getting frustrated myself. Starting a new rule though. I'm giving each boss 1.5-2 hours of trying to beat them and if I cant in that time frame I'm summoning a phantom npc to help. I finally learned that new trick on capra
civ v and randomized pokemon red
Just played Delta Rune, gonna try to beat Yo-kai Watch 2, any maybe find time to do homework lololol
World of Final Fantasy Maxima, Disgaea 5, and a bit of Naruto Storm 4 on PS4.
Some Shovel Knight on Wii U probably.
Definitely recommend World of Final Fantasy to anyone who likes turn based monster catching RPGs. I've only heard good things about the Switch port so far.
@gcunit That makes sense. That was the similar fun I had with my Wii U playthrough, I guess doing the same things again in Master Mode on Switch can be tiring for me. I did have lots of fun with a few new areas I discovered that I didn’t on my Wii U playthrough. For example after about 190 hours I finally found the snowball bowling game and Goron golf game, that was pretty neat. Hero’s Path helps a lot too.
I'm hoping to try to get through inside this weekend. Afterwards I'll be diving back into the Capcom beat em up collection as well as playing Rogue Legacy on steam. ( I want to try it out to see whether or not I want it enough to buy it again on Switch for the portability)
It's basically a mix between a Final Fantasy RPG and Pokemon. So if you're into Pokemon you'll love World of Final Fantasy. Even if you're not into Pokemon, I think it's still fun for fans of the series. All the characters of main games over the years are in, from Cloud all the way up to Lightning and Noctis.
@Mamabear Yeah, it’s just that the announced DLC got me more interested. But I agree it should be a little more cheaper.
@Oscarzxn cool glad you have enjoyed it, thanks!
Playing Cabelas The Hunt with the shotgun accessory. I'm really enjoying it, quite surprised no one is talking about it.
@JaxonH I’m playing WoFF this weekend too. It does seem to have slipped through quietly which is weird. I picked this up over Pokemon. I’m about 5 hours in and I think I made the right choice, it’s not perfect but it is incredibly charming.
@Skalgrim I’m enjoying it. There’s quite a bit of depth to the combat but I haven’t really had to take advantage of that yet so hopefully the difficulty will ramp up. It’s still got plenty of original stuff as well as nostalgic content which is great. I’ve only played handheld and the resolution is noticeably lower than 720p but it doesn’t look as bad as Xenoblade 2, just a bit blurry.
Ya it's not perfect (few games are, if any) and the port itself isn't perfect (hangs when trying to capture video, so the saving wheel just keeps spinning- you have to put it in sleep mode and then wake it up for it to finish saving the video). I've also noticed some sparse visual glitching in cutscenes. Nothing too bad but noticeable every now and then. I dare say the port was probably done rather quickly and on a low budget.
But despite that, it's a really fun game and the port's definitely playable. Solid framerate, res looks decent... I like it. Of course I owned this game back on Vita. Comparatively speaking this is a much better version, in just about every way imaginable. So ya, I'm happy.
I've never been into Pokémon but I do plan on trying to get into the series with Pokémon Let's Go. It seems like a game and catered towards someone like me who isn't really familiar with the mechanics. And it just looks fun. But I do feel like this is more of a core pocket monster experience, one that's made even cooler by the fact it's set in the Final Fantasy universe.
World of Warcraft⚔️
A bit of Skyrim and a bit of Diablo.
Totally engrossed with Dark Souls and will be for quite some time
Warriors Orochi 4, The Missing and maybe some Pokemon GO.
WO4 took me a little time to get used to after the themed warriors games but its damn good.
@Pirlo_ze_sniper Hope you don't catch "Hell" from your boss.
I just gotten the Smash Brothers Switch version and the first game I bought was Bayonetta 2 since I've played the PS3 version and I wanted to play this.
Playing Ultra Moon for the 3DS and Light of Hope for the Switch.
Microsoft Solitaire Collection (Android) - More random Klondike hands
Tinker (Win 10) - Had it running for about 5 mins and now it won't stop crashing again....
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (N64) - Made it the Water Temple(ugh). Still need to hunt for more Heart Pieces.
Continuing through the chapter 3's of everyone on Octopath Traveler. It also would've been Mega Man 11 had it came from GameFly today, but I'll have to wait, no worries.
@Mamabear the touch controls are a lot better for using the calculator. In the few hours I’ve played I feel fairly used to it. The game is cute and fun but there’s no getting around the awkwardness.
Red Dead Redemption (X360)
@Jiya no problem! Not your fault at all! What are the exclusives?
RDR2. I'm stalling in chapter 2. And when I mean stalling, I mean 40+ hours.... I'm moseying through the world, discovering, perfecting my hunting skills, doing small quests, doing chores in camp, listening to Dutch's boring speeches, finding out the backstories of the rest of the gang, making some money and taking it all in. This game is beautiful and so relaxing! Tonight I'll get a move on...promise.
@nintendobynature mmo is not a game but a type of games (massive multiplayer online) as in MMORPG (like world of Warcraft)
@xpromisedx So for Pikachu it’ll be Oddish, Sandshrew and Growlithe, while Eevee will have Bellsprout, Vulpix and Meowth. I still need to catch Bellsprout.
Finished Doom yesterday, what a game! Might try a bit of the multiplayer or i might pick up splatoon 2 again, not played it in a while. Also a bit of Enter the Gungeon and Crypt of the Necrodancer, 2 games i seem to play most days at the moment despite not being very good at either.
On a random note I've been replaying Star Fox. Both the SNES and N64 games have been getting replayed and bringing back fond memories. Also, Smash Bros. for Wii U in preparation for Ultimate.
Street Fighter II... on my Switch and Arcade 1Up Cabinet.
Just picked up Transistor- which is the only Supergiant game I’ve yet to play. Enjoyed Bastion but Pyre was really up my street- the worldbuilding and story just worked for me.
Transistor is obviously very highly recommended so I have high hopes.
Full Metal Furies, and a bit of VC4 amd Octopath for me.
Played a round on NES Open which was fun, some Battle Circuit, Final Fight and downloading Okami HD right now but I think I'll give that a crack during the week.
@Balta666 thanks my man. Appreciate it!
Splatoon 2 baby!
