Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? (December 19th)

The fantastic Horace is discounted to just over £1 on the eShop at the moment!

It’s been a busy old week in the world of Nintendo, with a brand new Smash fighter, more retro NES and SNES goodness on Switch, and even a very random update for a game that was practically discontinued seven years ago, but now it’s finally time to have a sit down and relax.

Members of Nintendo Life have discussed their weekend gaming plans below, and we’d love for you to join in with your own entries via our comment section. Enjoy!

With the arrival of the holiday Switch eShop sale, I picked up I Am Dead, Evergate and Florence and I’d love to give them each a fair shake before Monday when I’m looking to set my Game of the Year picks in stone. There have been so many great indie releases this year that it’s been a struggle to keep up. I’m also falling in love with Dicey Dungeons, which could easily soak up every spare minute if I let it.

Then there’s TT Isle of Man 2. I’ve got my custom control layout sorted and I’m slowly improving – now I only drop the bike five or six times a lap compared to eating tarmac on every single corner. To be fair, I am using manual and it’s the pleasure of riding that’s keeping me engaged rather than winning races. Just as well, really.

Have a fantastic holiday if you’re celebrating, folks. If you’re not, well, still have an excellent time! That’s an order.

Hi friends! So you’ll no doubt have seen that Horace went on sale recently; like many others, I immediately snapped it up and will be playing through it this weekend. Based on just a short session with it so far, I’m finding it to be a charming game with excellent controls, so I’m looking forward to diving into it a bit more and seeing what it’s all about!

As we’re nearly at the end of this wretched, wretched year, I’m also revisiting a few gaming highlights, including Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon 2, and Streets of Rage 4. We’ve had a few nice things this year at least, haven’t we? Have a good one, folks!
