Weekend Gaming Playlist
Summer is officially here and with it comes a few heavy hitting titles for the Nintendo Switch! While I am holding out hope of squeezing in some time with Rainbite’s “Trigger Witch,” and maybe even enjoying another playthrough of “Sense: A Cyberpunk Ghost Story” since my physical copy arrived, I anticipate being enthralled with Nintendo’s 1st party bangers. Here is what I’ll be playing this weekend!
Mario Golf: Super Rush
As I stated a couple of weeks ago in my first impressions, Mario’s latest outing on the links definitely has the fun factor. There are more than a few issues to complain about (I’ll cover them soon) but I believe it will be difficult for anyone to gather with a group of friends and be bored with Mario Golf: Super Rush. I’m excited to squeeze in a few sessions in between rounds of this week’s Open Championship at Royal St. George’s. Come back soon for more details when my full review drops here at SwitchRPG.
For those that aren’t aware, I am a father of two wonderful daughters. They enjoy gaming, but I haven’t quite gotten them to understand the joys of RPGs. Then along came Miitopia – this cutesy title begins as a simple, light hearted adventure but quickly evolves into an RPG with a surprisingly deep progression system complete with jobs and classes for your Mii! The story is wacky enough to have the player giggling throughout the experience but the gameplay – particularly exploration – has gotten repetitive at times. Come back soon for some first impressions of “Miitopia.”
The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD
While many gamers expected a compilation of Zelda games for the franchise’s 35th anniversary, it seems as though we’ll only be treated with this HD edition of Link’s most polarizing adventure. For reasons I simply can’t explain, Skyward Sword is the only Zelda game I ever missed out on. Needless to say, I’m itching to take to the skies of Hyrule and experience the beginning of the franchise’s canon. From what I’ve been able to gather, the visuals are well beyond the typical HD upgrade and the improved motion controls completely revolutionize the experience from the Wii. I can’t wait to find out for myself!
There it is, everyone! I promise to get back to those hidden indie gems soon but it’s hard not to be excited when Nintendo is on such a strong roll with first-party releases. So, what will you be playing this weekend?
