Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? (November 7th)


It’s been another busy week with plenty of new data from Nintendo revealing that the Switch has now outsold the NES, that Super Mario 3D All-Stars sold over 5 million copies in just 12 days, and even an updated list of Switch’s best-selling games, so it’s about time we sat back and had a breather, right?

With the weekend now upon us, 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!

Stuart Gipp, reviewer

Roaring through the first two No More Heroes titles gave me quite the hankering for the upcoming third instalment, so I’ve watched the excellent The Return trailer a number of times. Aside from this I’ve got Tropico 6 and Cobra Kai to review, so look out for those soon.

Otherwise I’ve been chipping away at Paradise Killer, and I’m about to start playing Pokémon Sword – my first pocket monster adventure since Pokémon White, so I’m a little apprehensive. Lastly, it’s back to waiting for Destiny 2: Beyond Light to drop, though that’s not on Switch. Of course, if it was, my life would basically be over, so I’m quite glad.

Gavin Lane, features editor

I’m not going to have the opportunity to play much this weekend, but any time I do nab will likely be spent with an upcoming release (I won’t spoil here). Still, if by some stroke of luck I manage to squeeze in a cheeky half hour, I’d love to get back to Banjo-Tooie. I’ve been dabbling with it for the last couple of weeks and it’s been eye-opening to revisit a game which felt so overwhelming the first time I through. The game hasn’t changed over the years, so it must be me. It’s good stuff!

Take care, everyone – it’ll be all right in the end.
