Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? (April 16th)

56

Another long week has come and gone; one that saw Nintendo announce a new indigo Switch Lite, rumours and a staunch denial that someone was looking to snap up Square Enix, and a rather good Nintendo Indie World Showcase that saw some releases drop on Switch eShop. Lots of weekend fodder!

Now, though, it’s time to discuss our weekend gaming plans. Members of the Nintendo Life team have done just that below, so feel free to give our entries a read and then join in with your own via our comment section. Enjoy!

I’ll be away from home for a couple of days, so my trusty Switch will come into its own as it often does. I’m currently doing a bit of old-fashioned grinding in Monster Hunter Rise to improve my armour; I’ve seen the first credits and am now getting into the meat of it. Beyond that I’ll jump between games depending on my mood: Huntdown is an awesome run and gun, I recently picked up OlliOlli: Switch Stance, and I redownloaded Oxenfree to actually finish it properly in celebration of the sequel.

I also have The World Ends with You: Final Remix installed for a playthrough, might as well use that Brain Training Switch stylus for something.

I’m not usually the sort to try out new and quirky indie games, instead favouring the comfort and familiarity of established franchises I already know I’ll love, but this week’s Indie World Showcase hooked me far more than any previous presentation focused on these digital delights.

As such, I’ll be getting stuck into two of the games that launched immediately after the show – The Longing and FEZ. I’ve heard really good things about FEZ’s gameplay, and Alex’s review is more than convincing, but The Longing is the game that really pulled me in during the show. A game that makes you sit around for 400 real days, trying to figure out what on Earth to do with your life? Maybe new ideas can be familiar after all?
