Weekend Gaming Playlist (12-20-22)
With the holiday season in full swing, there will certainly be a lot of time for fun, festivities, and game playing for many. For me, I have quite a bit of things to knock off my list before the year ends, but I’ll still be getting into some games this weekend. Here’s what I’ll be playing.
Rogue Legacy 2
I reviewed the original Rogue Legacy a couple years back, and it was easily one of, if not my favorite roguelite on the Switch. Fast forward two years and we have its long-awaited sequel, which more or less improves upon each and every aspect of the original game. While I’m only about halfway through the experience thus far – review to come soon – I almost regret not being able to play it sooner because it most certainly would have made my SwitchRPG Awards article a few weeks back had I done so.
River City Girls 2
As opposed to Rogue Legacy 2, the sequel to the surprising hit that was River City Girls has been a bit disappointing so far. While I’m only an hour or two in at this point, the game has significant performance issues in its current state, to the point that they’re actually detrimental rather than minor annoyances. Perhaps by the time I get around to doing a proper review of it, though, they’ll have a patch or two in it that will improve the experience.
Final Fantasy Tactics
Off the tactical RPG high that was Tactics Ogre: Reborn, I decided to take a nostalgic dive into the original Final Fantasy Tactics on my own YouTube channel. There’s not much to be said here – Final Fantasy Tactics is beloved for a number of reasons, and even though there are numerous things I hope they change/improve with it once its inevitable remake/remaster arrives, I’m still having a blast with it in 2022.
That’s it for me this weekend – what are YOU going to play? Happy holidays, Merry Christmas, and have a great weekend!
