Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? (August 14th)

Hades ArtImage: SuperGiant Games

Another week of that Nintendo life has passed, and there were certainly some highlights. There were all sorts of gems in the Indie World showcase, a blabbing comedian may have given up a Mario movie character, while on the rumour front we have the likes of Xenoblade Chronicles 3 and Grand Theft Auto Trilogy Remastered supposedly on the way. Oh, and there’s a Pokémon Presents on the way. Phew!

After a busy week it’s time to chill out and discuss our weekend gaming plans. A few members of the Nintendo Life team have done just that below, so feel free to give our entries a read and then join in with your own via our comment section. Enjoy!

Following an interview I conducted earlier this week (which music fans will definitely want to keep an eye out for soon!), I got an irresistible urge to go back to Hades. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with it back at launch, but shamefully I never actually escaped. With the game finally launching on other consoles, now seems like the perfect time to get back in the blood with Zagreus and co.

And beyond that, I’ve finally resorted to using an app to locate and tick off the remaining 100-ish Korok’s hiding around Hyrule in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. I still wish Nintendo had released a Korok ‘suit’ that would help me zero in on the seeds better than using the mask alone, but it’s tough to complain too much at this stage.

I’m planning to dive into Necrobarista: Final Pour, as its Indie World announcement intrigued me and I still miss regular visits to coffee shops. Elsewhere on Switch I’m still making slow progress through The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles, so it seems that I’ll be doing a lot of reading. I’m also working through Last Stop one episode at a time, which is enjoyable; maybe the fact I’m playing games that are more reading and watching betrays my march towards middle age.

Outside of Switch gaming I’m very much enjoying Death’s Door, which is marvellous, and will likely dive into Assassin’s Creed Valhalla to do some of the Ireland DLC, because I have fallen an entire expansion behind.

I’ve been playing a new game! Garden Story was one of the surprise releases from the Nintendo Indie World showcase, and I was on it like a car bonnet. So far, it’s living up to its “wholesome” promise, but it’s a little slow in the first few hours, so I’m excited to find out what comes next.

Also, now that my massive reviews are finally done,
