With the release of the Nintendo Switch looming, there’s a lot to be excited about right now. How are you filling your gaming days until the Switch is released? Check out our playlist with our games on the go below, and let us know what you’re playing this week.


  • Skyward Sword (Wii): Although I’ve made it all the way to the thunder dragon, I don’t think I’ll be able to finish the game in time before BotW releases and takes over my life. Still, I’ve enjoyed revisiting the game.
  • Story of Seasons Trio of Towns (3DS): I’ve settled into the farming life quite well as I prepare for my upcoming review. This is a great game to relax with, and I can see myself coming back to this one.



  • Azure Striker Gunvolt (3DS): I replayed some of Azure Striker Gunvolt 2. I was in the mood for a Mega Man-style game, but didn’t actually feel like booting up Mega Man X


  • Trevorforma.8 (Wii U eShop): Look for a review of this game in the coming days. Was it worth the long wait?
  • The Legend of Zelda (various): Until Breath of the Wild releases, I’m tiding myself over with a few classic entries..


  • Fire Emblem Fates (Wii U): back into this one after a short break, and I’m tackling chapter 20 at the moment. It’s taking me some time to defeat the Wind Tribe, with a very tricky map that moves your troops with a strong wind after every turn.
  • Pokémon GO (mobile): Another week of chasing pocket monsters, and I found a few of those 80 newbies that are hiding around here, including Sudowoodo, Natu and Ledyba. I’m about halfway through level 24, which is taking forever haha! I’ll get there eventually. I’ll stick it out to level 25 then reevaluate :)
