What are you playing this weekend? (October 16)

This week we ended with an Animal Crossing Direct stream detailing the latest free content coming to the game, as well as the paid Happy Home Paradise DLC. The broadcast also confirmed the price and date of the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack (not Pass, Pack!). Earlier this week, we also got to know Pokémon Blimey for the first time. It’s a long name when you have to type it a dozen times a day. And the MetrolED train continues to move. Phew!

After all this, it’s time to relax and discuss our game plans for the weekend. Several metersThe Nintendo Life Team Embers have done just that below, so feel free to read our entries and then join your own via our comment section. Enjoy!

I am think I seem to be close to the end of Metroid Dread; I took my time and get great pleasure from it. I need to get back to Eastward too, which is adorable and quite marvelous, while my annual Resident Evil 4 walkthrough is still fun going.

On non-Nintendo hardware, I will try to plunge into Back 4 Blood Co-op, I’ve had a ton of fun starting that week with my brother and a couple of downright terrible AI bots. However, AI maybe I suspect it is preferable to casual players.

I BACK ON THE TRAIN. Hopefully I’ll help a few friends explore Minecraft ropes on our shared server and build all sorts of cool structures together!

And when I’m not doing minecraft, I wonder if I should jump into Animal Crossing: New Horizons again … I still haven’t checked if my island has switched to my new Switch. I’m too scared to know if I’ve lost it all.

Hi. I went crazy downloading stuff just to see what it looks like on an OLED Switch, so I’m going to be jumping around my rear directory a lot this weekend and also digging into Octo Expansion Splatoon 2 for the first time. I downloaded Astral Chain (looks insane on this new screen), Breath of the Wild and Super Mario Odyssey will be dust-free and I will also turn off all lights and plug in my Bluetooth headphones for everything … encompassing Tetris Effect: Linked Action. I am totally enjoying my new toy.

Have a great weekend, whatever you do or whatever you play!

My OLED arrived a little late, so I’m catching up with everyone staggering around the screen – it’s incredibly difficult to get back to the original switch. This is by no means a significant update, but I need to go back to my library to see what games can really make this thing sing.

First on the agenda is a second playthrough for Metroid Dread. The initial launch was done on my launcher switch, and while I used the OLED to pick up the remaining collectibles, I really want to see the whole game on this beauty again.

I suppose it won’t be an incredibly long session, so now is probably a good time to dive into Fire Emblem: Three Houses again. I have a game since launch and am always distracted, but I hope the new display helps me stay on track – especially since the tiny font needs to be more legible on a slightly larger screen.

Hi people! I’m going to a big wedding this weekend (best man, right here), so I’m not going to play a lot. But as soon as everything is ready, I will return to Metroid Dread and start a new game in hard mode. What a game; I can’t believe there is a quantum leap over Samus Returns (which was great already!). This will definitely be one of my favorites in this series.

Hey, it’s my birthday! I’m too many years old. It’s no surprise that I’m still slowly making my way across the planet ZDR in Metroid Dread. Since the series tends to fade into the background compared to the more popular releases in the Nintendo franchise, each new game usually turns out to be quite special … and I enjoy it immensely, even though there have been only a few very short game sessions so far. I will also go back to my teenage F1 fandom years with Horizon Chase Turbo – Senna Forever DLC expansion. I believe this could be his own standalone game!

Game of the Week – Gleylancer. Of course, it only took a few decades to finally get one of the best Mega Drive shmaps, but at least I didn’t have to sell any body parts to buy one. Both the original and updated versions are excellent and remind me how much I miss NCS games in general.


As always, thanks for reading! Be sure to leave us a comment on your game plans for the weekend!
