Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? (October 31st)


Another eventful week down in the year 2020AD, and Nintendo dropped a surprise Direct Mini on us all, with games cropping up unexpectedly on eShop, including cloud versions coming the the West, and a prominent prognosticator produced a peculiar take on Nintendo’s Switch strategy.

With the weekend now upon us, though, it’s time to discuss 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!

I’m struggling to even decide what to play after the Mini Direct dropped a truckload but Part Time UFO has been capturing my attention. I missed out on the initial mobile release but HAL’s puzzler is incredibly charming and addictive – plus it has QBBY (from BOXBOY!) hidden in most levels which means it must be good. It kinda takes me back to the simplicity of World of Goo but with a quicker pace and jollier vibe.

I’ll get around to revisiting No More Heroes and No More Heroes 2 before the year’s end but for now, I’m actually going a bit further back in time. I’ve been on a bit of a Puyo Puyo kick in anticipation for Puyo Puyo Tetris 2 and ordered Puyo Puyo 2 for Saturn and Puyo Puyo Sun 64. I don’t have a huge history with Compile’s games so I’m hoping to give myself a history lesson with these two.

PJ O’Reilly, reviewer

Hello. This weekend I’m going to be getting stuck into a bunch of review stuff including Sniper Elite 4, a game I absolutely loved when it originally released, and Bakugan: Champions of Vestroia, which so far feels very Pokemon: Let’s Go, so keep an eye out for thoughts on those shortly. I’ll also be putting aside a little time for some Halloween horror-flavoured shenanigans with Little Nightmares and Layers of Fear, two games I’ve owned since they first came out and just haven’t got around to playing yet. Here’s hoping they scare the pants, trousers and socks right off my body! Have a spooky weekend whatever you’re playing and stay safe out there.
