Once again, we've made it all the way to the end of a busy week. We've had all the leaked images and info for Mario Kart Tour and a controversial Pokémon competition to keep an eye on over the last few days, but now it's time to sit down and chat about the games we'll be playing over the weekend. Several Team Nintendo Life members have done just that below, and we'd love for you to join in via the poll and comment sections below. Enjoy!

This weekend is Memorial Weekend in the States, so my family will be spending it together at our lake home, where my brothers and I will likely be pulling out the old Sega Genesis and Wii that we have stashed there. Some good old Sonic, Ristar, and Wii Sports are in order - all played on a classic 1990s-era television set. Ah, the memories.

This weekend I shall be mostly trying to play the games I didn’t get round to last weekend. Although I did manage to unlock the Game Boy skin in Tetris 99 and play a little Overcooked 2, both Windjammers and Capcom Beat ‘Em Up Bundle fell by the wayside when the codes for three Resident Evil's arrived in my inbox Friday evening. So I'll be catching up on last weekend's plans. I've got a little money sitting in my eShop balance, too, so I might peruse the sale one last time to see if anything jumps out at me. My backlog's so big, one or two more won't hurt.

Further adventures await me in Dragon’s Dogma: Dark Arisen along with some Spanish 101 lessons from Resident Evil 4. Sure, I will enter this weekend’s ARMS Party Crash Bash but its a mere formality: Ninjara already won this one and will move onto the final round, 100% guaranteed. Wonder Boy Returns Remix is a delicious hardcore throwback to my Famicom days and the perfect lazy weekend game. None of these games are Turrican 4, but...
Gunlord X (my game of the week) is, in everything but name. It took me all these years to finally be able to play NG:DEV.Team's glorious Euro run’n’gun masterpiece and it immediately brought me back to far simpler times of my Commodore Amiga years. Don’t even get me started on that glorious soundtrack!

I used to make fun of the fastest hedgehog alive requiring a car to go fast, yet somehow I’ve grown increasingly fond of the blue blur’s modern racing outings over the years.
How I feel about Team Sonic Racing is no different. If anything, I think I’ve enjoyed it more than the 2012 release, Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed. Despite the overall quality of the game, I feel as if Sega and Sumo Digital’s racing line is honestly better off without the existing “all-star” cast featuring a number of characters who don't appear to be making a comeback in the near future.
Moving on to my gaming plans for this weekend, if you hadn’t already guessed, most of my time will be spent mastering each track in Team Sonic Racing - overlooking the technical issues, online hiccups and even the opening cinematic missing from the Switch version of the game. As you can probably tell by now I have a bit of a soft spot for Sonic’s new racing game, meaning nothing is going to stop me from playing it as much as possible!
