Here we are at the end of yet another week, and what a busy few days we've had. There have been all sorts of Animal Crossing cloud save shenanigans, the Wonderful 101 Kickstarter, and plenty more besides, but now it's finally time to take a breather.
Members of the Nintendo Life team have gathered below to share our weekend gaming plans and we'd love for you to get involved via the poll and comment sections below. Enjoy!

All the recent The Wonderful 101 hype made me finally stick the poor original in my Wii U for its very first outing this week. You see, I actually received the game as a present years ago but I never found the time to play it. So far I'm a little mixed; there are certain elements that are super-cool, especially with the different powers you start to unlock as you play, but I can't help but feel that I have absolutely no idea how to effectively fight and I think that's dampening my enjoyment somewhat.
I'll see how I get on with it a little more this weekend while dipping in and out of Mario Kart 64. I managed to snag a lovely boxed copy in the week so I've been having the odd race or two each evening. #TeamYoshi

Last week I intended to crack into To The Moon but in the end I didn’t get around to it, so there’s that. I also picked up Sky Rogue for 50% off, so I’m eager to take off into some beautiful blue skies. And while browsing the games on sale I stumbled on Back To Bed, a surreal little puzzle game which I couldn’t resist picking up for a few coins, so I’m intrigued to see what that’s about, too. Perhaps that impulse purchase was my subconscious trying to tell me something…

Very excited to see DAEMON X MACHINA being unleashed onto the PC crowd. I will continue my campaign on the Switch but I will surely double dip down the line just for the sake of 60fps, high-resolution texture bliss. SD Gundam G Generation Cross Rays continues to consume my life with my production line currently offering 200+ different mobile suits and mobile armours to pick and mix. Only current top-secret work commissions will keep me from progressing more efficiently into both titles during this weekend.

In the run-up to the Final Fantasy VII remake, I've gone back to play the original game on Switch yet again. Everything about it, from the visuals to the soundtrack, makes me feel more nostalgic than perhaps any other game! Certain aspects certainly haven't aged very well, but I'm having an absolute blast with it.
I'm also still plodding away on Stardew Valley, but I have to admit that my excitement for the upcoming Mega Man Zero/ZX Legacy Collection has meant that I've gone back to play every single Mega Man game currently available on Switch!
