Weekend Gaming Playlist (7-22-22)
For RPG fans, and especially those who play on the Switch, we are going to be feasting really well for the next week. Today is the release of Live A Live followed by next week’s Digimon Survive and Xenoblade Chronicles 3. Hopefully all of these will turn out to be solid RPG releases on the Switch, and of course I’ll be getting started on some of them myself this weekend.
Live A Live
As soon as I saw the glorious HD-2D reveal trailer for this game, I was sold. The original game was released in 1994 for the SNES, but was never released outside of Japan, so this marks the first time the game has been officially translated and available for play outside of Japan. Live A Live has you take control of eight protagonists, each set in different time periods that play and feel different from one another. You can experience a few chapters before deciding if this game is for you by checking out the demo – If you haven’t done that already, what are you waiting for? I really like what Square Enix has done with the HD-2D aesthetic and I’m looking forward to the Dragon Quest III remake, but until then I am going to enjoy playing Live A Live.
Mario Golf Super Rush
I have been trying to slowly go back and complete games in my backlog, so I decided to go back and finish the adventure mode in Super Rush. I do miss the days of Mario Golf on the Game Boy as I think the adventure mode found in that entry was the series peak. I am enjoying the adventure mode so far in Super Rush, however, even if it lacks a lot of depth. I think I am one badge away from completing the mode and while the game is fun, I think at times it becomes repetitive and I would like to see more variety based on the clubs you are using. I think Golf Story was a golf RPG at its best and I look forward to Sports Story whenever that finally releases, but Super Rush has been fun so far.
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!
