What are you playing this weekend? (November 27)
It’s the end of another week, and there has been a lot of original development and storylines in the world of Nintendo. GTA Trilogy stayed in the headlines to some extent and had its first notable update, Sequence Breakers hit again in Metroid Dread, Mario Golf: Super Rush had a big update, Xbox acknowledged that she tried to buy Nintendo, Keanu Reeves doesn’t want to be in Mortal Kombat, and a bot reading and creating Nintendo news was weirdly hilarious. Overall a lighter week, with lots of Thanksgiving celebrations and great deals.
Now, however, it’s time to relax and discuss our weekend game plans. a few mThat’s exactly what the Nintendo Life team members have done below, so feel free to read our entries and then join yours through our comments section. Enjoy!

This weekend, I hope to finish the last boss of Terror Metroid, although I’ll probably spend a lot of time traveling to previous areas of the ZDR to suck up missile tanks and other items that I missed.
Beyond that, I can run away from my Switch in favor of retro Japanese goodness. I’ve had Captain Rainbow for a while now, and this week I received the Japanese version of Metroid: Other M as well as GameCube Japan-exclusive Kururin squash. I should probably start playing them rather than opening them, admiring their packaging, and sliding them across my desk.

I had a little frenzy in the sale of the eShop, seizing the two seasons of the Telltale Batman series in the same way FAR: Solitary veils. That should be a lot of great Switch games to enjoy while trying to stay cozy at home (it’s pretty darn cold and stormy this weekend in Scotland).
Somewhere else i will probably play again Infinite halo Multiplayer beta, and I will continue to improve Mass Effect Legendary Edition.

This weekend I would like to finish Unpacking, and will play Animal crossing: new horizons casually! I would like to get more Happy home paradise stuff unlocked, but I’m in no rush.

Hey people! A bit busy weekend for me, but I plan to continue my new game of Super Mario Odyssey. I try to take my time; I just walked into New Donk City and somehow enjoy the experience more now than when I first played there!
Other than that, I always jump into Halo Infinite multiplayer whenever I can. I think I’ll take a rest after this weekend because I don’t want to burn out before the campaign launches.

This weekend at the Shiryu Games: So many games, so little time …
The weekend of plenty! I will give these League of Legends one go spin-offs, HexTech Chaos and Ruined king should keep me busy this weekend. Eastern package delivered Toaplan Arcade Garage: Kyukyoku Tiger-Heli and Super Robot Wars 30, two content-heavy games that I already enjoy. Okinawa Rush is quite unique and excellent. Picked up Space Earth cheap and I love it. Mechanical Aquario is a refreshing slice of retro paradise. The surprise arrival of Darius: Cozmic Revelation.
The game of the week is DoDonPachi Resurrection. That’s it, the dream: Cave on Switch. I think no other system will ever come close to the legacy of Switch shmup.
