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

Another busy week in the world of video games has come to an end. In the past seven days we’ve seen LEGO Luigi leaked and then officially revealed, Super Nintendo World forced to close temporarily due to pandemic-related precautions after opening just a month ago, and Super Mario 64 show up playable in a browser.

Now, though, it’s time to discuss our 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’ll likely spend the most time playing MLB The Show 21; it’s easily the series I play the most away from Nintendo Switch. Assuming the servers are working, they’ve been a tad iffy at times.

On Switch I’m getting into the really good bits of Monster Hunter Rise; I did some grinding for decent gear and am now tackling some of the bigger beasts. It’s also Walt the Kangaroo’s birthday on the island of Llareggyb in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, so I’ll put on my nicest clothes and toddle along to his party. I still play every day, mainly because I can’t bear the thought of any of them getting a cold and not having medicine.

I’ve put Friends of Mineral Town on pause for now, although I did just achieve the (dubious) honour of dating everyone in town, because I’m having a hard time picking a spouse. Replacing FOMT (for now) is Deiland: Pocket Planet Edition, another “it’s like Harvest Moon but [twist]” game, where the twist is that your entire world is… an entire world. A teeny tiny planet, that is. Sadly, there’s no one to date, and you’re alone most of the time. Ah well.

I’ve been playing a lot of Fez — which I started up a Discord for, and only invited friends who’ve never played the game before. The intention was to swap tips and hints, but it turns out that all of us have no idea what’s going on.

Following on from last week, I’m still playing an upcoming review game, which is all about the adventures of Badguy Murderman. I’m really looking forward to reviewing it, because I both love it and find it INCREDIBLY FRUSTRATING.
