Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? (August 29th)


Another busy week has flown by with new reports of an upcoming Switch console revision and that surprise Nintendo Direct Mini, but now it’s time to take a breather and chat about our weekend gaming plans.

Members of Nintendo Life have done just that below, and we’d love for you to join in via our poll and comment sections. Enjoy!

This weekend I shall be steering clear of the Switch eShop sales and putting some time into the excellent Star Wars Episode I: Racer. Elsewhere, I’ll endeavour to complete Tiny Toon Adventures: Babs’ Big Break on Game Boy – a game I’ve started a handful of times this week but haven’t been able to finish thanks to real life butting its nose in. Man, playing a great Konami game really makes the fact the company doesn’t make video games anymore a drag.

Ah, at least we’ve got the classics. If I get time, I might squeeze in some Gradius on the Arcade Classics Anniversary Collection and I also downloaded A Short Hike last night and hope to devour that in one sitting. That it’s true to its title and isn’t a 20-hour slog is a genuine boon for me, and I’m really looking forward to it!

The Switch game I’ll be spending most of my time with this weekend is probably Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles Remastered. I know it’s not the most popular spin-off nowadays, but back when it first came out on the GameCube I was blown away by the multiplayer. As difficult as it was to get together a group of friends that all had Game Boy Advance and the special GCN-GBA link cables – if you did manage to pull it off, it offered hours of fun. Hopefully, the new one can provide me with just as much enjoyment, despite the exclusion of local play.

Apart from this, I’m planning to revisit Jump Force Deluxe. I did play this one a little on another platform last year but never returned, so I’m hoping the Switch version of it can hold my attention this time around. One other thing I’ve been up to recently that I’ll be continuing this weekend are my time trials in Sonic Mania Plus. Yes, I’ve become addicted to speed runs in Sonic – I’m even watching the best ones on YouTube to try and perfect my own attempts. Gotta go fast!
