Talking Point: What Are You Playing This Weekend? (February 13th)

With a brand new Mario game, new titles to check out on Switch’s NES and SNES apps, and a whole lot of scalper sneakiness going on at McDonald’s, it’s been another hectic week in the world of Nintendo. Thankfully, it’s now time to relax 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!

Hello. This weekend I’ll be digging back into The Outer Worlds to try out the first of its two DLC expansions, Perils on Gorgon. I’m a massive fan of Obsidian’s hilarious action RPG and am looking forward to jumping back in for fresh adventures with the old crew as well as catching up on how things have improved with the game’s Switch port since November’s big 1.0.3 patch.

Elsewhere, I’ll be diving into Super Mario 3D World with my kids for some multiplayer hijinks, having a first look at Bowser’s Fury and, if time allows, getting stuck into the fantastic Paratopic, the deluxe edition of which is currently reduced on the eShop. Have a good weekend whatever you’re playing and stay safe out there.

Earlier this week, I returned to Dead or Alive: Dimensions on the Nintendo 3DS. I was playing DOA3 the other week (on another platform), in case you’re wondering what spurred me on. I forgot how great this one is! It feels like the full-blown experience in the palm of your hands and there is a stack of content to unlock for each fighter within the game. The fighting itself is also top-notch.

When I’m not playing that this weekend, I’ll be jumping into Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury. Meow! At the time of writing, I’ve nearly completed the Bowser’s Fury add-on content, so I assume I’ll be revisiting Super Mario 3D World over the next few days. Happy gaming, everyone!
