Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? (October 24th)

57

Here we are at the end of another week, which this time brought us a seriously hot take on Nintendo’s business practices, a Super Mario Bros. 35 bombshell, and the announcement of an iconic rerelease for Fire Emblem.

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 wish I got a little more invested in Pokémon Sword and Shield. I finished the main game, levelled up my party a little and just kinda moved on. Isle of Armor squeezed a few more hours out of me but this weekend I’ll be returning to Galar once more and maybe this time the “post-game” will hook me.

The Crown Tundra just came out and this seems to be the real meat of the Expansion Pass. Not only is there an entirely new Wild Area to explore but Dynamax Adventures, which offers up legendary Pokémon from prior games, sounds like the time sink I’ve been waiting for.

I’ve also returned to my Persona 5 save which I for some reason abandoned around the 70-hour mark (we can pretend that’s on Switch, right?) It probably is in an alternate universe.

Hello. This weekend I’m going to be jumping into Green Hell, Creepy Jar’s brutal survival effort that so far has been absolutely hammering me with snake bites, parasites and all-manner of nasty, nasty ways to die so look out for that review shortly if I manage to make it out the other end of it all. Elsewhere I’ve finally reinstalled Valkyria Chronicles 4 and am adamant that I’m gonna get right the way through it this time without having my attention diverted by some other shiny new game…although I do quite fancy that Horace and Mario Tennis Aces is on sale right now…oh god, make it stop! Have a good weekend whatever you’re playing and stay safe out there.
