It’s hard to believe January is almost over and 2017 is in full swing. It’s even harder to believe that the Switch is heading our way in just under five weeks! We’re pretty pumped, and that’s definitely reflected in our playlist this week. We’re also heavily into Super Mario Maker at the moment, thanks to our fan-submitted courses. We’ve played through some excellent levels, so thanks to everyone for your submissions.

Check out our playlist this week and let us know what you’ve been playing lately.



  • The Legend Of Zelda Ocarina of Time 3D (3DS): I’M DYING TO PLAY BREATH OF THE WILD! So I figured I’d sustain my hunger with some good ol’ Ocarina of Time. My absolute favorite game in the series.
  • Splatoon (Wii U): All of those new Switch game trailers are killing me. I had to play some Splatoon this week to brush up on my skills. Can’t wait for Splatoon 2.
  • Super Mario Maker (Wii U): Me and some of the team played different Mario Maker courses that were sent in by various readers. We finally narrowed down our favorites. Checkout the next issue of PNM to see the winners!


  • Super Mario Maker (Wii U): Once again, I’m playing through some courses submitted by our readers with the PN staff. There is some great stuff here, and I’m looking forward to sharing our top 3 picks. If you’ve made a cool course, be sure to share it with us, as we’d love to play it!
  • Pokémon Moon (3DS): Now that the Pokémon Bank has been updated to work with Moon, I’ve transferred over all of my Pokémon to my cart. Currently in the process of hunting for a decently IV’d Ditto, but after that I may set my sights on the battle tree.
  • Gurumin 3D A Monstrous Adventure (3DS): A fun little eShop title that reminds me of an N64 game in a good way. Working on getting 100% to unlock the secret ending. Be sure to check out my Gurumin 3D review.


  • TrevorThe Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD (Wii U): With Breath of the Wild only a few weeks away, my wife and I are passing the time by replaying Link’s epic adventure on the Great Sea.
  • Super Mario Maker (Wii U): When it comes to picking our favorite fan courses, we take the process seriously. The next issue of PNM will be here soon, and I’m excited to share what we’ve selected!


  • Fire Emblem: Fates (3DS): I’m powering through now with a great team, plus I married my butler, Jacob haha. I’m up to chapter 19, so I’m faring well in the second pathway of this great game.
  • Pokémon GO (mobile): FINALLY made it to level 24. My interest is waning in this game but I am playing it briefly every day daily just to get my daily streaks…
  • Miitomo (mobile): I briefly dipped back into this one recently, since I keep receiving notifcations that entice me a little. With limited spare time though, I’d rather be playing Fire Emblem …
  • Super Mario Maker (Wii U): As with the rest of the team, I’ve been trying out a bunch of fan courses, and wow are they impressive! There are some super-creative level designs out there. It’s hard to pick just three but we’ll let you know our choice soon enough!
