The weekend is finally here and we want to know what you’re playing. The Pure Nintendo team has compiled our own playlist – there’s a lot Pokémon action around here lately – but what’s been on your gaming agenda recently?
Check out our full playlist below and let us know which games you’re playing right now.
- Pokémon X (3DS): Decided to start shiny hunting again for a shiny Hawlucha, and after many eggs bred through the Masuda method later, a shiny Hawlucha is finally mine! I think Hawlucha is an awesome pokemon, so i’ll be looking forward to battling with it. Perhaps i’ll try to capture a shiny tentacool next time I feel like hunting.
- Pokémon GO (Mobile): I still play this on my brief walks to work. Progress is starting to get slower now that my Pokedex has reached around 90 of the creatures capture. My highlights were finally hatching my first 10km egg (I got a Jynx), and evolving my Magikarp into the fabled Gyrados. Not bad for still being at level 17.
- Pokémon Alpha Sapphire – I’ve been revisiting this with all the Pokemon Go hype going on. Been loving it and it’s just getting more and more excited about Sun/Moon in November! I’ve rekindled my quest to catch ‘em all and I’m trying to transfer them all to Alpha Sapphire so I’ll be able to move them all forward through the Pokemon Bank to Sun/Moon.
- Hot Rod Racer (Wii U eShop): My review game this week. It’s just okay, but has potential.
- Jewel Match (DsiWare): I don’t think I’ve ever thought to put it on my playlist before, but I often play this puzzle game before going to sleep.
- LEGO Star Wars: The Force Awakens (Wii U): I beat this game a while back, but was well short of 100%. I also have the 3DS version, but am mostly replaying it on Wii U to enjoy the co-op. Just crossed over the 70% mark.
- Skylanders Superchargers (Wii U): This had been a wish list game for some time, and I finally picked it up for a good price. Not too far in yet, but Turbo Charge Donkey Kong is cool!
- Super Mario Maker (Wii U): I only need 4 more stars before I can upload more courses. Perhaps I can tempt you with my two latest creations?
- A Puzzle Platforming Mansion: (08DF-0000-0281-7A33)
- Voyage on the Vegetable Airship: (D576-0000-027F-120F)
- Fire Emblem: Fates (3DS): I’m at chapter 22 of Birthright now, and I’m so close to hitting Nohr with everything I’ve got!
- Pokémon GO (mobile): I had to step back from this a little during the week .. I *may* have gone over my data limit .. but I did hit level 15 and catch some more Pokémon like Cubone and Rhyhorn to make 48 in my Pokedex.
- Rubik’s Cube (3DS): I played this for a review, and I have to say that it’s not a game I would have chosen for myself. I ended up enjoying it, since it helped me solve my first Rubik’s Cube, though there were some minor usability issues. Check out my Rubik’s Cube review for the full story.
