Weekend Gaming Playlist (3-25-22)
For me, this weekend is going to be a bit of a break from the RPGs, much in thanks to the return of the pink puffball, Kirby. But I will be playing at least one game with some RPG elements. Regardless, this is how I plan on spending my gaming time this weekend:
Kirby™ and the Forgotten Land
Kirby is back! Sure, there was a Kirby game around when the Nintendo Switch launched, but this is a new full-3D Kirby adventure and it looks beautiful. I am not the biggest Kirby fan, having only played a few entries in the series, but I like Nintendo 3D platformers and the reveal trailer sold me on it. If you are on the fence about this game, Nintendo recently released a demo which lets you try out three levels,including a boss fight. I am looking forward to seeing where Kirby’s post-apocalyptic adventure takes him.
ENDER LILIES: Quietus of the Knights
I had started this one earlier this year, but ultimately put it down for other games. I restarted it earlier this week and found myself hooked once more. This metroidvania looks gorgeous on the OLED as it makes all the blacks and whites really pop. I am only a couple hours into this playthrough but the game is already challenging and has encouraged some grinding. This side-scrolling adventure does have an experience and level-up system so grinding out a few levels has helped me take down some areas that were giving me trouble.
Kena: Bridge of Spirits
While not on the Switch, I have been playing Kena over on the PS5 and so far, it has proven to be a mixed bag. The game is beautiful – like a Pixar movie. The sound and worldbuilding are great, and I am really enjoying the exploration aspects of the game. That said, the combat could be better as it’s very unintuitive and repetitive. But the other aspects of Kena are great so I will continue progressing to see how Kena’s journey concludes.
That’s it for me this weekend! What are you going to play? Let us know in the comments below, or over on Twitter. Enjoy your time playing, stay safe, and be well!
