Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? (March 6th)

Pokemon Blue

With fresh “Switch Pro” rumours and confirmation that Nintendo has no intention of backing down from its decision to wipe Mario from existence at the end of the month, it’s been quite the rollercoaster week. Thankfully, it’s now time for us to have a breather and chat about our weekend gaming plans.

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!

Unsurprisingly, I’m still Valheim-ing quite a lot this week. Most of my play sessions involve going somewhere new, almost immediately dying, and then having to do an ill-advised naked corpse run. It’s wicked fun.

In Nintendo world, though, it’s been a lot of farming, which actually makes an interesting parallel with Valheim, a survival game with agriculture and crafting, but also monsters. I played a lot of Story of Seasons: Pioneers of Olive Town for our preview, and I’m also playing Harvest Moon: One World, too. Playing both at the same time is really not doing either of them any favours, and I’m thinking of doing a piece that directly compares and contrasts them so that no one else has to go through this themselves!

I also downloaded My Time at Portia and Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town as a palate cleanser for when I’m done with these two games. I’ve caught the farming bug again. Help.

My partner is still making his way through Ace Attorney, if anyone’s wondering – he’s on the case with Acro currently. I really hope Capcom remakes Apollo Justice before he gets to the end of the trilogy!

It’s interesting how as someone working for a gaming journalism website, with a wealth of games at my disposal, I’ve found myself having a ridiculous amount of joy playing back through Pokémon Blue on my Game Boy Color. I’ve just hit the Safari Zone and am really feeling the “Gotta catch ‘em all” spirit, so I probably won’t move on until I’ve done just that. Also, I can’t remember for the life of me why there is the option to throw a rock? Aren’t you supposed to get Pokémon to like you? Pretty sure if I threw a rock at my girlfriend she would have ran away a long time ago…
