Check out our latest playlist below and let us know which games you’re obsessed with at the moment. We promise there’s no judgment here.
Pure Nintendo playlist
- Guacamelee 2 (Switch) – Been playing this with friends at our weekly game nights and having a blast! The challenge is definitely ramping up as we near the final boss, but it’s worth the ride. I especially liked the ‘Dank Cave’ hidden area :). The devs had some fun there!
- Metro 2033 Redux / Metro Last Light Redux (Switch) – Playing this for review and enjoying my time so far. I’m not too far in yet but look for full my full write-up on these coming up!
- Lego City Undercover (Switch) – It began when I saw it was on sale last week. Then I thought I will just play it on my Wii U, but that seemed like work. Then I remembered Jemma’s review, so I read it. After reading it I decided to buy it again. I have been enjoying it ever since. I play a mission or two per day.
- Soccer, Tactics and Glory (Switch) – This began as a review I posted earlier in the week but since finishing the review I have still been enjoying it. I try to play a game or two a night.
- My Hero: One’s Justice (Switch) – I have been playing this off and on for a year now. I recently decided to give it another go. I am really enjoying playing my way back through the story again. Trying to get better rankings on certain levels.
- Rune Factory 4 (Switch) – I am playing this for an upcoming review and it’s under embargo so I can’t say any opinion at the moment. It is the game I have been sinking 90% of my gaming time into.
- Stardew Valley (Switch) – With a new Animal Crossing game on the horizon, there has been no better time to jump into Stardew Valley than now. I’ve been playing the game on and off for years, but lately I’ve devoted more time to it so I can leave my farm on a high note when I sign my soul away to Tom Nook.
- Overwatch (Switch) – Most who know me know that I’ve long hated the way Blizzard handles their popular hero shooter, Overwatch, but with the recent release of the game on Nintendo Switch everything changed, and it has become one of my favorite games on the system.
- Payday 2 (Switch) – The Payday video game franchise has always been a long-time favorite of mine, and recently I’ve been spending some time with Payday 2 on Nintendo Switch, so that I can regain my “Infamy” status in that particular version of the title.
- Pokémon Shield (Switch) – A couple months after the launch of Sword & Shield and I’m still going strong on my Pokémon addiction. I absolutely love the camping feature, the wild area, and the new Pokémon introduced in the game. With the recent announcement of DLC and the launch of Pokémon Home, I can’t see myself stopping this game anytime soon.
- Leisure Suit Larry – Wet Dreams Don’t Dry: Happy Ending (Switch) – After missing this point-and-click adventure throwback upon its initial release, I received a review code to take a look at the new “Happy Ending” content that was recently released. You have to understand that the first LSL was released when I was in college, and was therefore directly responsible for shaving at least a few points off my GPA. Thankfully, that’s not a concern anymore.
- Glass Masquerade 2: Illusions (Switch) – Another review in the works. This beautiful, surrealistic puzzle game is my current go-to when I have a short time to play or want to kill a few moments before or after digging into a bigger title for a longer gaming session. Speaking of which…
- Warriors Orochi 4 Ultimate (Switch) – This is my second attempt at conquering this entire game, made more difficult by all of the content added to this new ultimate edition. Thankfully, my oldest son is helping me out now that Ryu is included, and my daughter jumps in, too, provided she can play as Kunoichi. 177 fighters now, and it takes those two characters to get my family involved. I’d say I don’t understand it, except you’ll rarely find me using a party that doesn’t include Sun Shangxiang.
- Fire Emblem: Three Houses (Switch) – I am late to playing this game, but over the course of a month or so, I’ve managed about 60 hours into it. It’s been a welcome surprise how much content is in this game. As a first time FE player, I’ll definitely be paying more attention to this series.
- Animal Crossing: New Leaf (3DS) – In a desperate attempt to get in as much Animal Crossing time as I can, I’ve played a bit more in my town. It’s still a solid game, but it hasn’t dampened my excitement for New Horizons.
- While I’m playing several games for review coverage, I want to focus on the one game I’m playing just for fun… Polyroll (Switch) – Lots of platformers try to capture that feeling of nostalgia, but Polyroll manages to pull it off successfully. From its Sonic-esque gameplay to its colorful level design, it feels like a game I would’ve played in the early-mid 90s. I think I’ll be sticking with this one for a while too, as I try to find all the hidden gems. The Switch is no stranger to platformers, but Polyroll has a high-quality that many lack. For less than $9.99, genre fans need to definitely check this one out!
- Milo’s Quest (Switch) – I’ve just reviewed this simple RPG, in which you play the role of a puppy chasing ghosts while digging for bones. There’s a lot to like in this cute game, though it does lack some variety.
- Dr. Mario World (mobile) – I don’t know if this will ever drop off my playlist! I’ve been playing this one for awhile now. I love the events that come up every week, like star and clinic events, which keep me hooked. I’m currently on level 388.
- Mario Kart Tour (mobile) – I played this a LOT over the holidays, and I’m still playing it weekly. I love the themed cups and its fun to play the remixed retro tracks. I’m also desperate to collect all the drivers!
- Super Mario Party (Switch) – this is something we play most weekends, making levels to outdo each other. I’ve been enjoying desert levels of late.
- Super Mega Space Blaster Special Turbo (Switch) – I’ve just started this one for my next review, a retro-inspired shooter with plenty of unlockables as well as leaderboards to climb. Watch for my review soon!
- Hey! Pikmin (3DS) – I’ve been revisiting this one with my family, it seems to be a favorite lately. I reviewed it way back in 2017 and I’ve grown to appreciate it even more over time.
