As another busy week draws to a close, what games has the Pure Nintendo team been preoccupied with? Mario Kart 8 is a safe bet, but there are plenty of other great gaming moments, from the Switch to smartphones. Check out our playlist below and let us know what’s on your gaming agenda this week.
- Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Switch): I’ve been having fun trying to beat all of the cups again. I’m really enjoying battle mode online as well! And as I said in my recent MK8D review, the best part of this game is being able to play on the go!
- Puyo Puyo Tetris (Switch): I’m pretty much addicted to this game. I just moved to 16th in my region last night and hopefully I will continue to climb the ladder and be the best Tetris player in alllllll the land! Still not a fan of Puyo Puyo….
- The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Switch): Okay… So, I finally decided to beat Ganon so I could see how much progress I’ve made. After easily taking both of his forms down I was excited to see the final cut scene that I had worked so hard for. I never thought I’d say anything truly negative about BoTW, but the ending sucked. It was so short and lacked the depth and emotion that I was expecting to experience. Not to mention that Ganon was one of the easiest enemies to beat in the game, in my opinion. I think I had to refill my hearts maybe 3 times. So that was a huge let down, especially with how good the game is overall. For the ending to feel almost lazy, was very frustrating for a fan like me.
- The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Switch): My relentless hunt for the Koroks continues. I’ve found 380 so far, but I’m slowly drifting towards madness. At night, I wake up in a cold sweat, the words ya-ha-ha echoing in my mind. However I must press on.
- The Simpsons: Hit & Run (GameCube): Trying out this cult classic for the very first time. Loving all the Simpsons references hidden throughout Springfield, but all I can really say is this game suh-ucks!
- Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Switch): Still playing through all the cups trying for 3 stars on all of them :)
- Mario Kart 8 Deluxe (Switch): My main game this week, and like Kaelyn and Justin, I’m really enjoying replaying the courses to get my star rating back!
- LEGO City Undercover (Switch): I’ve spent a lot of time with this one too, really taking advantage of the new multiplayer mode and just exploring Lego City – there’s never a dull moment, it’s so easy to get distracted by something as you drive around town! As I said in my recent LEGO City Undercover review, this is super fun game.
- Puyo Puyo Tetris (Switch): Still just teasing myself with the demo version, though the full version only came out here in Australia today! Let’s just say that I’m very tempted to purchase the full version…
- Super Mario Run (mobile): Still checking in every other day for a quick rally to collect those Toads. I’m at about 1100 now :)
