The Pure Nintendo team has made it through another week, thanks to some hard work – and plenty of gaming time to keep us sane. As avid Nintendo fans, we squeeze in as many gaming hours as possible, so check out our favorites from this week below. We’d also love to know what’s on your playlist, so share all your latest gaming delights in the comments section below.
- Harvest Moon: Friends of Mineral Town: I am now about halfway through the Fall season with a field full of crops. I recently bought a few new animals and finally was able to propose to the woman of my choosing. Now I just need to get my farm up to 100% and get to making those babies ;)
- Super Mario World: Me and Patty are so hyped for Super Mario Maker that we had to do something to suppress our yearnings. We made it all the way to the forest of illusion with almost all the secret levels unlocked. This is my all time favorite Mario game.
- Hyrule Warriors: I’ve been playing this a bit on the side. I’m loving Links new retro outfit! Right now I’m going through all of the levels in Legend Mode on hard. Hopefully soon I’ll have a little extra money so I can download the Majoras Mask DLC!
Pokemon Alpha Sapphire: Been getting back into Pokemon lately when they announced a free shiny Rayquaza. I’m excited to see where they take the Pokemon series next.
Super Mario Maker: Now that my review is done, I can really buckle down and have fun with this game. I am THIS close to having a giant, fully playable plinko board working correctly.
Donkey Kong Country: Played some 2 player contest mode with PN staff Tristan while I was in Washington state for PAX. Maybe it was the severe lack of sleep, but I could have sworn I was a master of this game when I was younger. It seriously kicked my butt though!
Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D: This game has been sitting on my 3ds for awhile, so it kept me occupied on my flight back home. It impresses me how well the game looks and runs for being a port of a Wii game.
My Wii U is out of action! My cat chewed through the power cord :( So it’s all 3DS for me this week…
- New Super Mario Bros. 2: Like Kaelyn, I’m inordinately excited for Super Mario Maker this month, so I thought I’d play some coin-collecting Mario on my 3DS to stave off the cravings for a little longer.
- Pokémon Shuffle (3DS): Finally passed level 190!!
