Weekend Gaming Playlist

Spring is finally here and with it comes a little bit of a lull in game releases. Fortunately, I have a mounting backlog that I can finally dip into. Nobody else has that same problem, right?


Vaporum: Lockdown


I love a good Bioshock clone and this first person dungeon crawler from Fatbot Games fits the bill…on the surface. Having delved a little deeper, I’ve discovered a grid-based, strategic affair with numerous puzzles that isn’t much like Bioshock at all. Adjusting to the controls has been arduous, at times. The story has been somewhat predictable but I still feel as though there may be a few surprises in store for me. Check back soon for my full review!


Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition


Here’s a confession: I’ve never completed Xenoblade Chronicles. I originally owned the game on Wii and was so put off by the repetitive voice acting that I put the game down after about 20 hours. The Definitive Edition includes the option to silence voices during combat, so it’s finally time to give the game the attention it deserves.


Pokemon: Let’s Go Pikachu


The more footage I see of “New Pokemon Snap,” the more I want it. Having said that, I’m choosing an old, reliable favorite to scratch that itch while I wait. I happen to think this title is unquestionably more enjoyable than Sword and Shield. Yeah, I said it.


And there you have it! We have SaGa Frontier Remastered and New Pokemon Snap just ahead on the calendar. Will you be picking up either title? What will you be playing while you wait?

I fully agree, Let’s Go > Sword/Shield.

Enjoy Xenoblade Chronicles!! It’s definitely one of my favorite switch games, truly a gem. I finally picked up Atelier Ryza 2 this past week, so I’m probably gonna dive into that fully this weekend. I also am gonna continue Xenoblade Chronicles 2, because I’m almost done with it now! I thought it wasn’t nearly as good as the original at first but once the combat finally opened up at around chapter 4, I was able to enjoy it much more.
