Weekend Gaming Playlist

Written by firestream on August 31, 2018

This weekend is extra long in the U.S. due to Labor Day, so that should mean extra game time, right? Maybe, but for me, I'll actually be out for a short trip to catch a pro baseball game. That doesn't mean I'm not playing something this weekend though. So, here is my playlist!

Ys: Memories of Celceta (Vita)

This is the first Ys game that I'm actually getting to really play. I grabbed this for my PS Vita earlier this week, and after about 2 hours, I am hooked! The action in this RPG is really fast-paced and very fun. The story hasn't really kicked into gear yet, but I'm having enough fun through combat and exploration to offset it.

Golf Story (Switch)

I'm also planning to jump back into Golf Story this weekend on my Switch. If you haven't played this game, even if you don't like golf, you should try it! It has light RPG mechanics, a funny story with charming characters, and solid gameplay. It's also got that retro look and feel that I'm just a sucker for.

Have a great weekend, and be sure to leave a comment with your gaming playlist!

Golf Story is so good. I keep thinking about going back and playing through it again.

My weekend will kick off a big beach vacation, which is running all next week. So my gaming time for the foreseeable future will be board games and multiplayer games on my Switch, likely to include Brawlout, Bomberman, Overcooked, Lovers in the Dangerous Spacetime, and whatever else strikes the fancy of the friends we are vacationing with. It's a big group.

I'm currently playing Ys VIII on the Switch and now want the rest on the Switch. I have most of them on the PC but they are very grindy games which is perfect for the Switch.

Also started playing Ōkami HD this week so hopefully I'll get to that too this weekend.

I might pick up Bad North this weekend. It looks very interesting.

I'm Vitaless but I am going to finish a Ys: Origin playthrough this weekend! Golfstory is on my wishlist too so why not!

Golf Story is such a good game. I'd love to see a more traditional RPG from that team as well. They could totally do an Earthbound-like game. I'm really hoping for more Ys on the Switch. Such a great series! Ys VIII was fantastic on Switch, and I'd be way more inclined to play other games in the franchise if they brought them to Switch.

I'll be playing more WoW this weekend and preparing my body for DQXI on Tuesday. Cannot wait.
