Another week has come and gone, with festive toys appearing in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, the announcement (finally!) of a release date for DOOM Eternal, and a firmware update for Switch bringing a few new features, some very welcome, others more divisive.
With the weekend now finally upon us, though, it's time to discuss our weekend gaming plans. Members of Nintendo Life have done just that, and we'd love for you to join in via our comment section below. Enjoy!
PJ O'Reilly, reviewer
Hello. This weekend I’m officially switching my brain to Christmas mode and kicking off the festivities by downloading a bunch of my favourite Xmas holiday games. As usual Breath of the Wild is gonna be getting its annual spin — I’ve still quite unbelievably got bits and pieces of that one left to discover — and I’m adamant that this year I’m finally going to beat Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, mop up every collectible and 100% that bad boy. I’ve also got Super Mario 3D All-Stars lined up to play through with my kids and all I need now is someone to hop over to my house, mull me some strong wine and put my tree up. Have a good weekend whatever you’re up to and stay safe out there!

With the holidays approaching, it's time to start getting my Banjo-Kazooie save files in order. My tradition of visiting Freezeezy Peak on Christmas morn has admittedly fallen off in recent years, but having revisited Banjo-Tooie recently for its 20th anniversary, I'm more in the mood than ever. Therefore, I'll have to find a couple of hours to blitz through Mumbo's Mountain, Treasure Trove Cove, Clanker's Cavern, Bubblegloop Swamp and Gobi's Valley to make sure I can enjoy racing Boggy and saving the Twinklies on Christmas morning.
Otherwise, like PJ I've also been dipping back into Breath of the Wild after Age of Calamity, pottering about finding a Korok or two. Whaddagame, eh? I also picked up Epic Mickey: Power of Illusion for 3DS this week (following the 10th anniversary of Epic Mickey on Wii). Castle of Illusion was pretty much my first ever video game, so maybe I'm going easy on it, but I kinda enjoyed the first thirty minutes I played, so I'll dip back into that.

This weekend I finally get to live out my fantasy of pretending I can speak Japanese by playing a game that until now was only available in Japan; Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon & the Blade of Light! I've played a handful of Fire Emblem games but my knowledge of Marth merely consists of Smash and a pop-sensation version of him in Tokyo Mirage Sessions - it's time to finally right that wrong.
I'm also going to spend a lot of time staring at the Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 icon waiting for Tuesday's launch.
Ollie Reynolds, reviewer
Hi folks! Bit of a quiet one this weekend I'm afraid; I've just rolled credits on Control (not the cloud version, I'm afraid!), so I'm currently experiencing that feeling of emptiness one gets when finishing a particularly strong game. I'm continuing my playthrough of Luigi's Mansion 3, slowly but surely, and I've also booted up Resident Evil 4 yet again (I think this might be my tenth… no, twentieth time playing it through..? Who knows!), so I'll have plenty to keep me busy.
Otherwise, this weekend will be dedicated to some Christmas shopping! I don't know about anyone else, but Christmas is really sneaking up on me this year, and I've not even thought about doing any preparation until now. Still plenty of time though, right? Right..?!

Speeding towards the conclusion of 2020 will be some fun-filled hours of intense Switch action with the likes of the epic Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity, the silly nonsense of Immortals Fenyx Rising, the pixelated medieval shenanigans of Yes, Your Grace, learning everything about rice in Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin, becoming DK (no, not that one) in Absolute Drift Zen Edition and tactical not-quite-espionage-but-very-pyromaniac action in Wildfire.
My game of the week is Fire Emblem. While I still prefer the Super Famicom option, I can’t deny the joy of at long last having this one officially localized for us Westerners and hope Nintendo starts doing the same for other games in the series.
As always, thanks for reading! Make sure to leave us a comment below with your gaming choices over the next few days...
I’m currently finishing off Robotics;Notes DaSH and playing a bit of Forager on the side. I think next I’ll start either Shantae and the Seven Sirens or CrossCode.
The game is so good!
Taiko Drum n' Fun while I wait for my copies of Rhythmic Adventure to arrive, and a little bit of the Fire Emblem NES game that came out yesterday. Maybe I'll play a little bit of Root Double before going to bed.
I’m saying something I never thought I would ever say: I’m sick of video games! I’ve played sooo many since quarantine in March and while I’ve had a great time with most of them, I can feel my personality deteriorating as we speak. Maybe I’ll watch a movie...
Edit: 🚫 Society has progressed past the need for COVID-19. 🚫
Fenyx and Empire of Sin. Also a bit of Borderlands 1. So many games, so little time.
I played Dance Dance Revolution Konamix PS1 just now. 😀
I got the game yesterday so i have to test it out.
I accidentally corrupted my PS2 memory card on 2P side when i tried to plug in PS1 memory card onto my PS2 FAT USA.
All my saves data of Ratchet Deadlocked, Ratchet & Clank Size Matters, DDR MAX 2, DDR EXTREME and DDR EXTREME 2 were corrupted. 😭😭😭
I have formatted my PS2 memory card and start making New save data again from beginning.
Start from beginning again, it hurts. 😖
I think i will continue my Dragon Quest Heroes 1 PS4 tonight after dinnertime and also some Final Fantasy IX Switch as i have been waiting for that game to be played in physical.
Oh, since today is Walt Disney's birthday anniversary, i will play some Disney Magical World 2 3DS before sleeping.
Taiko no Tatsujin Rythmic Adventure 1 & 2
Was not completely sure what to expect. But it is totally bonkers in the best way possible so far.
Immortals Fenyx Rising
I am already 15-ish hours in, even though I should wait for the rumored patch in a few days. It really looks rough. But it is such an entertaining game.
Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon ... etc
Finished map 2. Still avoiding to do weapon management. I feel like I have to do it soon tough.
I like the game. Was afraid of it, but found myself enjoying it so far. These kind of hard to access games have some of their own magic.
Hades, still. 150 hours in, have escaped around 40 times, and the story is still moving on. Staggering. This is my GOTY of 2020 for sure. Take care out there, guys, and stay safe and well.
Fenyx! 10 hours in and I've had such a blast with it. For me this game is everything I hoped for and more. So far my fav. single player game of this year. Aiming to complete it before I hop into the world of Cyberpunk next week.
Nothing. It should have been immortals Fenyx Rising but with an AAA price tag and CCC reviews, I passed on it.
@yusuf2002 I like how stupid and slapstick it is. Refreshing to see a new AAA game not being broody and ultra serious.
Started back on Ocarina of Time yesterday on 3DS. Wow, that game really holds up. I loved it in 1998, but it has lost none of its charm since then.
Trying to finish okami no spoilers please.
Getting into Ori and the Blind Forest. Stunning-looking game, and got that addictive feeling of exploration down really well. Quite a decent challenge too if the first boss set-piece is anything to go by.
@Snatcher Ni no Kuni, Taiko no Tatsujin, Okami no Spoilers
Assassin Creed Valhalla, maybe a wee bit of SackBoy
i just beat Donkey Kong Land 2
Ill try and finish Metroid 2
and maybe start Castlevania Legends
Persona 3 mostly I suspect. I’m still tempted by Age of Calamity but not 100% sold. Was also thinking of picking up the new Yakuza game. Would be my first time with the series.
I'm going to aim to complete Mario Maker 2 story mode and maybe play some Mario Kart 8 online with my friend. If I finish Mario Maker 2 story I'll start playing Mario Galaxy for the first time ever.
As you can see I'm getting into the spirit of Mario's birthday year.
I completed Lydia last night which was one of the most unsettling and saddest games I've ever played. Never played anything like it before.
Super Robot Wars T, baby !
Skyrim on Switch. It's fantastic!
@skulltulips you're underpowered when you face the first boss. Your number of energy cells is probably small and you haven't collected most of the powers you'll have gathered by the time you get to the last third of the game.
Playing Ori is an amazing experience! In addition to exploration being super fun, the game is a sight to behold and a treat to the ears. I just can't recommend it enough!
Tetris 99 for the event theme.
Kuru Kuru Kururin on GBA, it's such a unique game and great fun.
Spyro Year of the Dragon. Am now on the last game of Spyro Trilogy on PS4. The graphics are so beautiful will definitely be replaying these games in the future.
Mostly Sakuna. Getting a good groove with my rice and the game has an insane amount of armor to unlock. Maxing out armor and skills for a bit. Plus I just love the combat.
Assassin's Creed Valhalla for the most part but just picked the wife up Diablo 3 so will probably grind some rifts with her later on - will be interested in finding out if we can both scan the loot goblin amiibo and get two treasure portals a day.
I finished Demon’s Souls, but I’m likely to play through it again, just quicker.
I’m playing Fist of the North star: lost paradise and crash bandicoot N.sane trilogy on ps4 through ps5 BC. Also playinh sackboy a big adventure and planet coaster console edition on my ps5.
Immortals. So happy with this game. Really enjoying the light-hearted aspect of it.
Olli Olli 2. Very fun once you get hang of the controls.
As one downside of getting a new Switch, I've been mostly playing the "redownload almost everything you had installed on your 512 Gb card and lately even on the internal side" game, made all the more "soulsborne" by the second revision's retained unpredictability on the sleep mode front and reliance on H+ since Belarusian 4G has been extra drowsy as of late. That said, the results are all over the place - many titles barely gain a small percentage overnight despite the maintained connection, and then you just leave the console on during your classes and it gets 17-point-something Gb of Xenoblade 2 on board in three hours.😳 Credit where due, I've already got some of the fattest packages back, plus a lot of the smaller stuff.
What will I be possibly playing among them today? Certainly some Warframe (which is listed as over 500 hours in my profile. YIKES), some Bioshock 2, possibly some more Prison Architect (which has already given me one of the most dramatic tutorials I've ever seen), some Bloodroots I didn't get to download immediately after purchase some time ago and more High Noon Revolver and Quest of Dungeons which are the latest indie roguelites to have hooked themselves into my backlog spotlight. On other Nintendo platforms, some Layton and Luxor respectively, especially to give Switch Wi-Fi some breather room while today's "main course" (Skyrim) is dripfed to the card.😆
Thanks for coming to my FWP talk.
Got the Borderlands complete edition this week and started the first game for the first time ever yesterday evening. Until now only got about 30 hrs or so of Borderlands 2 years ago and it's fun to see the start of the series. Otherwise ACNH for the daily grind, collecting the toy day stuff and waiting for the snow to stay.
I just finished getting the Super Mario All-Stars theme in Tetris 99 and will jump straight back into Darkest Dungeon once I've done today's daily run in Slay the Spire (as usual).
Currently halfway through said DD (Radiant difficulty), having took down the first Colour of Madness (DLC) boss yesterday. Right now, I'm just casually grinding for more town upgrades and level 5 skills/equipment as my main priority, before continuing with the level 3 bosses (4 left to go) and eventually making a start on the level 5 quests.
I'm about halfway through New Super Mario Bros U Deluxe Switch Turbo Extra Special Edition and honestly I'm finding it a bit of a chore. Just wanna wrap it and a few others up ready for Miles on PS4 for xmas
I'm on the home stretch of finishing Everybody's Golf for the PS4. I've had a 2 week break between jobs and I've spent the majority of it chilling back and golfing. While I do love the game, progressing is such a grind since you have to play so many matches to unlock more courses and progress the story. I never would have been able to play through it if I didnt have this time off.
Aside from that, I'll play a bit more of my Arcade 1ups, and probably play and beat the last game on my Capcom Beat Em Up Bundle (Warriors of Fate), and maybe some Mega Man X4 from my Legacy Collection.
Immortals Fenyx Rising - damn good game.
Been playing Alliance Alive HD, but the battles have started to grate on me as I still can’t get my head around the battle system and the conditions you get new moves not how effective attacks are.
Feel like playing a bit of a more actioney game. Want to dial the brain cells down and try yet again to finish CoD BLOPS 2 on the Wii U but those stupid optional missions with limited attempts are just an inconceivable result of a drunken stupor or daughter seduction! I would like to play Hyrule Warriors on the Switch but that’s a Christmas present to myself.
Any advice for simple, fun action or platform games with no exploration, collecting, RPG mechanics and absolutely no rogue-like/lite mechanics?
Do you have it on switch? How does it run in your opinion?
Kingdom Hearts: Melody of Memory
Got this 33% from a Black Friday deal. I wasn't going to pay full 60€ but I was willing to pay 40€ this close to the release. I've played it once so far. I wanted to start with The 13th Struggle but turned out you have to unlock every song and the story goes in the game release order so I ended up ending my session with that song instead.
It's fun. I saw lot of skepticism before the launch but to me it doesn't feel that different from Theatrhythm. I like that there are additional missions in each song in story mode. Gives something extra to do once I've played through the story. I'm currently playing on Standard so I get most missions done simply by playing the song once. I could play on Proud but I like to play rhythm games on default difficulty first so I have more of a reason to play the same songs again.
Last Window: The Secret of Cape West
December 23rd. The game has had quite a slow pace but I don't mind it. Hotel Dusk was similar in that sense. It started out slow so you have time to befriend all the characters. Then it ramped up for the end.
Etrian Odyssey IV: Legends of the Titan
I played through EOU earlier this year and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was my first experience with EO outside of demos. I wanted to start another EO right away but was afraid I'd get burned out. Plus I have plenty of other games I want to play. I finished my second run of Three Houses so I decided it was time to get back into EO. I had plenty to choose from. I have most 3DS games, only missing V, but decided to go with IV.
I've now finished the first main dungeon and I'm about to enter a new area with my airship. I'm bit unsure how I feel about the game. It's very similar to EOU gameplaywise but so far I prefer the main cast in Untold over my custom party in IV. I guess I'm just not that into character creation in general. I don't even remember the names I gave them. On the other hand, I wish I had more options to choose from. The amount of different classes is quite small and most of them are similar to classes in Untold.
I also miss floor jump from Untold. There are plenty of items to get you out of dungeons but no fast ways to jump back into action other than opening up shortcuts. But you still have to traverse same paths multiple times as you go in and out.
It's fine. I am not a graphics person so it doesn't bother me that it isn't pristine. I just love portable mode.
Game is charming and funny.
I havent played any new AC games so this game feels fresh to me, from a mechanics perspective (since many say it borrows from the AC games).
My BIG BIG BIG issue is a crashing bug. Very bad. It crashes when I start the game and it connects to Ubisoft Connect. I fixed it by putting the Switch into airplane mode, so it won't connect to Ubisoft.
I heard there is a patch next week to fix it. I'm cool not connecting to Ubisoft.
@FX102A The Contra Collection, Cuphead, Crash Bandicoot N.sane Trilogy, Oniken, Streets of Rage 4, Sonic Mania, Double Dragon & River City Ranson Bundle Collection just to name a few that came to my mind
Immortals: Fenyx Rising. Absolutely loving it, this could be my game of the year.
Also been playing Age of Calamity and Ys: Origin.
Age of calamity and will probably start the gardens between as well or maybye cosmic star heroine. Not sure yet
crusader kings 3 mainly
Finally finished a run through of Xenoblade chronicles remastered ( again ) . Currently playing The Outer Worlds , Resident Evil 4 and Demons rise War for the deep. Really want to also finally start. Graveyard Keeper or Moonlighter as well. Not sure which I want to start first .. intrigued by both .
Va-11 Hall-A for me. It has fantastic world building and a great soundtrack.
It’s also set around Christmas time.
Rune Factory 4
Ark: Survival Evolved (RIP Barbie)
And yesterday I found a copy of Hoshigami Remix at the local game store, so yay for me.
I'll check my island in ACNH, continue in The Last Campfire, and I bought Dragon Quest Builders on sale.
The main thing for today will be decorating the Christmas tree with my granddaughter!
where's the poll?
Overwatch (Switch) - Practicing for the Christmas even that starts next week.
The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (N64) - Link is sneaking into Ganon's Castle now.
Super Mario Kart (SNES) - Hankering to play this, basically there will be tons of multiplayer over the weekend.
Cut the Rope: Experiments (Windows Phone) - Continuing to enjoy this.
@John_Deacon yep, early impressions are very good! I'm excited to get deeper into it.
Digimon Story and Rune Factory 4.
On my second playthrough of Fire Emblem Three Houses. Animal Crossing New Horizons everyday as usual. A little bit of Dragon Quest V as well.
Smash Ultimate- Making my way to Dracula's Castle in the Dark Realm- where is it? Also, how do you hide spoilers?
This week I will be mostly playing
Age of Calamity
Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of light. And a ton of Dragons Dogma. Two rock solid games
Got Borderlands collection so maybe that.
Already started working out with Fitness Boxing 2. Other than that, it’s Animal Crossing, my son playing Mario Maker 2, and a whole lot of PS5.
Since people are actually mentioning other systems, I’m simultaneously working through Miles Morales, Sackboy, and getting to know Persona 5 for the first time.
Currently finishing my backlog of games I half-played. This weekend will probably be DQ11 and/or Valkyria Chronicles
Only just picked up Super Mario Odyssey (loving it) so I will be playing that and Fire Emblem (NES) in the hope that they bring more out.
My birthday was on the 3rd, I ended up getting both Sega Genesis Classics and Super Bomberman R, so of course, I'll be playing those this weekend. In regards to the Genesis Classics game, I'm planning on playing Altered Beast, Golden Ax and some Sonic The Hedgehog, probably a few others as well.
As far as modern gaming goes, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (w/ the kid), Rocket League and Super Smash Bros.: Ultimate, will get some play time as well.
Played through Danganropa a few days ago, not really feeling like playing anything in particular at the moment.
Tried to get into Link's Awakening remake, didn't like it. Then I tried to start a new campaign in Civilization 6 but I don't think I will continue on that either. Don't really feel like playing Fire Emblem either atm.
I've been doing a lot of gaming lately so I'm probably just a bit burned out at the moment.
Playing Pokemon Sword & probably some Fortnite Season 5. I need to get into Ki No Kuni or XBC2. Both have been sitting in my backlog. Probably try go finish another floor in Luigi’s mansion too.
Am now playing Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit Remastered, Hyrule Warriors: AoC, No More Heroes Remastered, Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin, and Zelda: The Wand of Gamelon Remastered (already completed Link: The Faces of Evil).
I'm currently trying to 100% my Doom 2016 Nightmare save file on Switch ahead of Doom Eternal. I 100%ed my Eternal save file on PS4 way back when it came out, and I plan to do it again on Switch. Just want to max out my Doom 2016 save files first.
Aside from that, I'm continuing my marathon. Skipped the rest of Color Splash for the time being since my brother and I are going to continue it at Christmas and hopefully do Origami King as well. Already did Mario Run so now I'm on Mario + Rabbids.

Got too many games during the past several weeks due to sales. Continuing to play Sakuna; got Dusk Diver to play which the combat is something I wanted on the Switch, but could do without the story; maybe play some hammerwatch; and trying not to play Odyssey that I got with a controller, since I still have one of the 3D all-stars games to beat before I start another Mario game.
Animal Crossing New Horizon and since I just completed Phantasy Star, I might jump on the 2nd game on that Sega Genesis Collection.
Dark Souls 2 - Scholar of the First Sin
Wizardy V - Heart of the Maelstrom, has been staring at me, menacingly lately, though. Might attempt that beast again.
I'll continue playing playing Hyrule Warriors: Age of Calamity. Since I recently purchased other games, I may play Megaman 11 or X7/X8 of X Legacy Collection.
Mainly playing some older titles at the moment. Christmas always fills me with nostalgia, and although I'm playing some of the games on my list for the first time, they still manage to take me back to a bygone time.
Banjo-Kazooie (Xbox One X)
Jet Force Gemini (Xbox One X)
Viva Pinata (Xbox One X)
No More Heroes (Switch)
Travis Strikes Again (Switch)
Streets of Rage 4 (Switch)
Castlevania: Rondo of Blood (PC Engine Mini)
Soldier Blade (PC Engine Mini)
I've decided to hop back into Ni No Kuni after taking a little break. I'm currently 35 hours into the game now! Since I'm closing in on the end (I think), that's currently my main focus. Afterwards I'll finish up my playthrough of The Way Remastered
Recently downloaded Tetris 99, so I've been playing that. ACNH, and maybe some of Gris later (we're doing some home renovation projects today, so I don't anticipate a lot of game time).
Divinity Original Sin 2, Streets of Rage 4, Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth and Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light.
Currently learning the ropes in Breath of the Wild (Switch) for the first time. See y'all after the New Year. Hyrule calls my name!
(There might also be brief periods of Pushmo, Pokemon Go, and Among Us this weekend. We'll see!)
Xbox One — Dragon Quest XI S:. Played this on the Switch so now I will been doing a playthrough on 2D mode.
Switch — Immortals Fenyx Rising:. Been looking forward to this one for a few weeks now. Can't wait to start it.
I am finally starting Axiom Verge.
Finishing up GHOSTRUNNER before DOOM hits next week, playing the Maximus Cup on T99, and bouncing back and forth between MILES MORALES & S-M: REMASTERED on my PS5.
Fenyx has been unfairly treated by so many. It is a great game. So funny and yes its nicks a lot from BOTW but tbh it does everything so, so well. Majestic game imo.
Just XB1 stuff this time, I obtained the Tetris 99 theme yesterday and the first Fire Emblem is being saved for later on in the month.
Xenoblade 2 Torna and Thronebreaker this weekend!
Yeah the graphics look really fine in my opinion, thats why i wanted it to hear from someone who actually played it, thanks will buy it for the switch when the patch arives.
Been on airplane mode all day. Working with no crashes.
When you buy it, don't be put off by the LIMITED draw distance in the prologue. That is intentionally.
Just 100%ed Fez last night — never played a game quite like that, real shame it hasn’t been ported to Switch. Not sure what’s up next for the weekend — maybe some Worms WMD campaigns, some Ori (love the Switch port), or Yoshi’s Crafted World.
Not Doom Eternal but Sniper 4 Elite...need to blast some SS back to history.
I will be playing Pokemon Shield and Super Mario Party again this weekend! The perfect accompaniment to my weekend plans.
Dragon Quest 5 on 2DS, Age of Calamity and Sakuna: Of Rice and Ruin on Switch, wrapping up Miles Morales on PS5.
Just beat Streets of Rage 4 (last level is crazy hard without using the internet & happy to say I didn't look anything up)!! Playing Dark Souls Remastered, absolutely in love with it, the Demon Souls review on Pushsquare convinced me I can play and beat a Souls game. Also playing Witcher 3, Smash, Animal Crossing & Horizon Chase Turbo. Fantastic weekend for gaming!
@Krull I just started Majoras Mask on 3DS a few weels ago after helping defeat Ganon in Ocarina on 3DS. They're absolutely amazing!
Resident Evil 4 on GameCube. Splatterhouse on PC-Engine.
Immortals Rising - I'm really loving this game! I'll have to return to BotW after I'm done with this one.
Hades and Ori 2, with some Need for Speed Hot Pursuit, Ultimate Alliance 3 and Mortal Kombat 11 in between.
Carrying on with Secret of Mana, reliving my teens. The combat can get a bit tedious at times but I still love it overall.
@k8sMum I finished The last campfire about a week ago, and i am still playing ACNH. If you like those games you should check out Spiritfarer, it is a great game and story. And, i bet your tree looks great!
@Tyranexx i havent heard anyone mention Pushmo. Those games should be imported to switch, they are some great puzzle games that I think stand the test of time.
Also playing the original Fire Emblem for Famicom that is now on the Switch. Damn shame it never made it to North America, it's a beautiful game for the 8-bit era and a lot of fun.
@dugan I'm really enjoying my time with Pushmo! I'm about halfway through the Nintendo murals if I recall. It's a nice little game, I've been knocking out a few puzzles every now and again.
Age of Calamity still dominates my gaming. It’s got an addictive aspect to it, and playing in the BOTW world is still lots of fun. And avoiding spoilers, I’ve been finding the story fun. It’s precisely what I wanted.
Thanks for the game suggestion. I'll check it out.
The tree looks lovely. She's 5 and no longer puts all the baubles on one branch at the bottom.
Age of Calamity.
Got the Tetris 99 Theme and the daily challenges in Super Mario Bros. 35, hopefully get some Super Mario Galaxy in later.
Hmm played some Until You Fall, apart from that some Picross 3 in spare moments and Diablo 3 to get the seasonal stuff done.
@Tyranexx I’m also playing Pushmo at the moment - just finished the Nintendo murals section! Only got a 3DS for the first time during the first lockdown earlier this year and picked up a few games. Pushmo is much more cleverly designed than it first appears - you feel like a genius when you finally crack one that you have been tinkering for a while. Love how it’s an Intelligent Systems game that they knocked out between Fire Emblems - that team is clearly talented. Will definitely pick up Crashmo next.
@Kilamanjaro discounting in the 3DS is so strange - managed to get OOT for about £10 digital recently as it is in the selects and they were doing a 50% off My Nintendo deal. Whereas MM is still £40 physical and digital.
Only got my 3DS this year to complement my switch and want to have a complete collection of the very best games so might have to bite the bullet. Have played both before on N64 so know they are both fantastic.
Picked up Fenyx rising relatively cheap , so am playing Fenyx rising , a really good game🤪🤪
@BongoBongo Majora's Mask goes on sale pretty frequently, I think I got mine 25% off physical & have seen it on the eShop. Definitely right about their weird sales there! haha
@BongoBongo I've been really impressed with the game so far! There's definitely more strategy to it than its cute exterior implies. Pushmo has been on and off my radar for years; a game I wanted more always came along lol. I finally bought it using a 30% off My Nintendo discount last month. I'm also considering grabbing Crashmo in the future!
Excellent little IS series. I hope it makes a return on the Switch at some point.
@BongoBongo Don't forget about the third one Stretchmo!
Playing Overwatch, waiting on Doom Eternal.
Still played Pikmin 3 DX. I love that game to pieces
