Talking point: What are you playing this week? (May 16th)




Feathers Crossing Animals

Another busy week has been here and gone, this time bringing the Fly asset flip game to the switch, a lot of Animal Crossing multiplication stuff, and the great Paper Martin Switch reveals, but now it's time to slow down by playing something on the weekend.

Members of Team Nintendo Life got together to discuss our weekend plans, and we would like you to join our voting section and comment below. Enjoy!

Liam Doolan, a journalist

For the past few months, the only game I've been playing on my Nintendo Switch Crossing the Animals: New Horizons. Nothing has really changed in that time – I'm in debt, and I still need some Bears. Because of this, I will be spending most of my week picking and selling fruit to pay for at least something, so I will be taking out another loan from the Nok bank and doing it all next week.

If I am not busy paying off a loan, I may have to test the last major update Manufacturer of Super 2. There is a limited time event for Animal Crossing Tetris 99 this week, so I need to open that theme. All that for me!

My time with Crossing the Animals: New Horizons it is still shrinking continuously, but I will undoubtedly be out every day for half an hour or so to keep up with the daily highs and check whether Nook's Crown has any sugar goods.

Most of my free time this week, however, is spent playing Mario and Luigi: Superstar Saga in the good old Game Boy Advance. It's been sitting on my shelf since childhood, and blogging revealed that I was only 10 years old who managed to put in about an hour before moving on to something else. I really enjoyed my time with it – especially the comics – and will continue that weekend. Between this and the Sports Paper revealing this week, I'm at a too much

Feelings of Mario.

PJ Oe, review,

This weekend it's back to Old Scrolls for me to others Elder Scrolls: Blades the act of review. I'll be interested to see how the game gets going since I first got into it when it was first released on mobile devices, here's hoping they have spent at least some of the time and ads and other paid gaming stuff that set me straight back then.

For one thing, I still enjoy blasting explosives without thugs inside Huntdown, it's actually the oldest and most powerful gun gun attempt you've played in a long time, and I'll be rolling out an old 3DS and introducing my kids to Paper Mario to get them to taste why I'm so excited about the announcement of The king of Origami this week. I hope you all stay safe and have a good weekend.

I'll do my best to make sure the end of the game I play this weekend is not Animal Crossing (but of course, it is uncertain.) I am starting now to create more art with my island and have new places I am working on decorating and decorating! I ended up doing a commercial I like to call "The Stop and Swop" here Banjo-Kazooie, except Isabelle said she's not her biggest fan because it contains some bad stuff like my old Moldy hat, Hat Frugal, etc.

I started playing The final concept of VII Open a few weeks back to review our video and I was trying to download it when I found myself having free time. I played back in the day and went to the last "hole" but laid down for some reason and never did! I guess the other part of me didn't want the game and its story to pass, hoping that with this new playthrough I would see the journey to the end.

I finally got into my room Animal Crossing, where I log in for about an hour every day and complete regular tasks. Of course, this has opened the way for me to start playing other things again. I'll probably go back to some of the games I was in before Animal Crossing Mania hit, like Luigi's House 3.

I've played a lot Too late 2 with friends and family online during detention. Some new games I downloaded a few months ago and are still trying to install Nice work!, Picross S4 and Little Town Hero, as well. However, there are new events kicking off Animal Crossing soon … so who knows if I will just come and play something else!

Gavin Lane, feature editor

I'm in the mood to play some fun games this weekend. Our family suffered from a Too late 2 an addict who has begun to disrupt relationships. It's a fun game, but we bet it's dry and those 4-star challenges are very stressful. We need a new co-op feeling and I'm keeping my eye out Check-out since its first announcement. I interviewed Ashley Ringrose from the developer of SMG Studio a while ago (see if that discussion will go up soon), and I look forward to finding out if I have found the best performance of the F.A.R.T. or not. * keeps a straight face… *

Have a great time, everyone!

I just discovered something new and unexpected in it Ring Fit Adventure – no spoilers – again Crossing the Animals: New Horizons he keeps finding new ways to keep me coming back to the island. EShop also noticed another number of funny things this past week: Gravity Rider Zero, Pong Seeking, Elder Scrolls: Spots, Ion Fury and very good Jet Lancer they will all enter into the rotation this weekend.

My game of the week is a genius named Huntdown. Surprisingly, there was another GOTY candidate just a few days after Rage 4 roads release. Now if you'll excuse me, it's John Sawyer's finger causing the re-entry. It's time to kill, kill and kill others in a locked street.

As always, thanks for reading! Be sure to leave your vote in the voting above and comment below for your playback options over the next few days …


Ever since I had the NES, I knew that Nintendo was going to be with me for life. From that NES to SWITCH, I've known all the Nintendo systems.
