As another week dawns, which games have we been obsessed with over the weekend? With the holidays fast approaching, let’s hope these playlist have room to grow! Which games are you looking forward to? Check out our playlist below and let us know what you’re playing right now.


  • Animal Crossing New Leaf (3DS): Been playing this daily, and today in my town the fishing tournament was being held. I had caught plenty of fish the night before in preparation, but I was only able to acquire 3 pieces of the fish furniture set. Although it may have been an unlucky day, at least I’ll have a shiny gold trophy to make me feel better. If you want to visit my town, look up the town of Koholint by Alex in the dream suite.
  • Pokémon Moon (3DS): At this point, I feel like my playlist is getting repetitive, but I am just really hooked on Animal Crossing and Pokémon right now. This week, I was able to capture a shiny Pikipek through an S.O.S battle. Until Pokémon Bank becomes compatible with Moon, poor Rotom will just have to wait before becoming a complete ‘dex.



  • TrevorExile’s End (Wii U eShop): My review will be even later than expected, and I apologize for that. Part of the blame lays at the feet of backtracking, but is it the game’s fault or my own? Time will tell.
  • Pokémon Sun (3DS): I’ve finally made my fashionably late arrival to the Alola Region.
  • Severed (3DS/Wii U eShop): This game makes great use of the touch screen on both the 3DS and Wii U GamePad. With its bogo deal, it’s easy to have Severed on both systems.
  • Super Mario Maker (3DS/Wii U): If you haven’t already, please check out my SMM 3DS review. I’m trying to get all the medals I missed the first time around. I’ve also gone back to the Wii U game, to create where the 3DS version falls short.


  • Fire Emblem: Fates (3DS): Continuing the Conquest saga, and I’m surprised at the difficulty compared to Birthright so far. There are familiar face, like Silas, but we’re all so weak! I had levelled up so much in my last game :p Still, I like the different objectives so far.
  • Pokémon GO (mobile): Nothing too exciting to report, still on level 23. I did catch my first Weezing this morning though. I’m using Squirtle as my buddy – just one more candy then he can evolve – c’mon Squirtle!
  • Guitar Hero Live (Wii U): I found myself needing to rock out this week and just forget the world. I did end up powering through quite a few concerts, but was almost booed off stage during a random Pearl Jam song.
