Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? (April 3rd)

40


We’re now into April and despite the internet’s best attempt to fool us, the best the pranksters did was to provoke a wry grin. In other news, Balan Wonderworld became the biggest bot bait of the year (so far), the Castlevania game so bad that Konami couldn’t bring themselves to call it Castlevania was announced for a standalone Arcade Archives release, and prolific plumber, and princess-rescuer Dr. Mario Mario was finally laid to rest.

Now, though, it’s time to discuss our (long) 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!

This weekend I’m looking forward to sinking my teeth into Monster Hunter Rise. Since it arrived on the scene last week, it’s become a nightly ritual for me to go out hunting, so I intend on continuing that over the next few days. I’ve not been the biggest fan of the series in the past, but this latest entry is really growing on me.
Apart from this, I’ll be booting up Among Us to try out the new Airship map. I have played a handful of games already with some friends and it’s been great fun so far. I’m looking forward to finally getting a go as the Imposter, assuming the servers hold up. That’s all for me – enjoy your weekend, everyone!

For this extended holiday weekend I plan to be suitably lazy and do plenty of gaming. On the Switch this’ll primarily be Monster Hunter Rise, predictably; I’m still relatively early in the story so will have some extended hunts, and may delve into multiplayer too. I also grabbed Huntdown and XCOM 2 Collection on sale, so they’ll get playtime.

My other current platform of choice is Xbox Series X, so I’m wrapping up a Gears 5 run before switching to Prey. Also definitely planning to try out Narita Boy on Game Pass, it looks (and sounds) fantastic.
