Gonna wait for a review or two of Speedway Racing but man, I hope that game is what it looks like it could be.
I'll pick up 2 copies of Darksiders Genesis tomorrow. (Wireless play enabled)
Happy Valentine's day everyone ❤❤❤
Speedway Racing looks very promising. If you're not into Animal Crossing like me, there's not much on the Horizon (pardon the pun).
Just Snack World for me. At least Nintendo has put out a big game a month so far, what with all the silence on their part in 2020:
-Tokyo Mirage Session #FE Encore in January was pretty solid.
-Byleth dropped in Smash Bros Ultimate and is already one of my favorites. Looking forward to Fighter Pass 2 surprises.
-Snack World Gold in February looks yummy.
-The Fire Emblem Three Houses DLC last night is already excellent.
-Animal Crossing New Horizon will be epic.
Who needs a Nintendo Direct?
@Stu13 I would be very surprised if it's good... I know you can't always judge based on this, but it's $9.99... 290 MB... and I can't even find a video trailer anywhere.
Also, I can't find any info on the developer, but they appear to be linked to the VERY shoddy pinball games released, like: Touchdown Pinball, Jurassic Pinball, Horror Pinball, etc.
I hope I am wrong... but this seems like a phoned-in cash grab.
3000th Duel for me, pending a Switch review. Steam reviews sound promising, so I just want to make sure the port is handled well.
Snack World. Been looking forward to that one.
Nothing for me, except I might d/l Byleth, or Piranha Plant this weekend. Happy Valentine's day everyone, & God bless! Enjoy gaming!
Dead Cells The Bad Seed DLC
Nothing really. Snack World maybe when it goes on sale. Darksiders 3 made it to PC game Pass so hopefully Genesis will do the same (or xCloud beta)- not in a rush for either.
Goblin Sword and maybe Darksiders, nothing else catches my eye.
goblin sword is fun on mobile, but it's also fairly generic.
snack world for me! i'll get darksiders on a more boring week.
Psikyo is already preorderd, waiting on reviews for darksiders. Might get snack world this month.
Hoping for some sweet 3DS digital deals.
Just started the Radiant Historia remaster after finishing Fire Emblem Fates and it’s super effective on my backlog! I gotta say I’m loving it RH so far. That voice acting goes a looong way! (Looking at you Pokémon Sword / Shield)
Working on reviews of a few of these and purely for my own consumption I have Snack World and Darksiders Genesis arriving tomorrow!
@holygeez03 the fake auto parts logos are soooo good, though. I know you're probably right, but I'm keeping fingers crossed just in case.
I find it extremely frustrating and laughable that you can buy the physical version of AO2 Tennis EVERYWHERE for the SWITCH for 39.99 but if you try to buy the digital version from the eShop it is 59.99.
@Zach777 Anyone looking for more than a new nintendo game outside of animal crossing or ports/remasters.
@Zach777 Yeah, who needs more games right?
I was interested in Snack World, but $50? Hard pass.
I just finished Glass Masquerade on PC a few days ago, and it was great. Not sure about in on the small screen, though touch controls would be nice.
Happy Valentine's Day to me!!! Ohmigosh!!! She's stunning!
That is not what I said, nor is that what I implied, but I certainly appreciate your mature assumption.
I’d imagine there’s something out there you haven’t tried yet.
It's still a little weird to see no 3DS releases, especially when it held Nintendo fans over for so long.
Don’t buy any shovelware made by Bigben Interactive. How are they still in business?
Scrambled eggs that's what I like. Lightly toasted that's how like it. Nice and early that's what I like!
Nothing for me this week, but I'm regularly reminded that it would be really convenient to add items to my "wishlist" online - when I'm not actually on the console. I'm more likely to forget about something if it doesn't get on the wishlist and it's a lot easier to browse those titles online than on the console.
@Zach777 You'd be suprised, if you can name one quality game by nintendo that I haven't played I'd be very shocked.
Fire Emblem Three Houses Cindered Shadows DLC
@Zach777 You underestimate me young one.
