Another weekend, another chance for us all to share our Nintendo gaming plans! Whether you're slowly melting into nothingness like us poor souls in the far-too-sunny UK, or happily enjoying your summer days in a much more friendly and stable climate elsewhere, we hope you'll get a bit of time to enjoy your favourite games. This week we've got a lot of hero-based shooter action, RPG happiness, and even a special event to attend.
The weekend has arrived, and it's brought with it more summer weather and all manner of new games to play. Team Nintendo Life, as always, has an eclectic selection of games both fresh and retro on their agenda for the next couple of days, but what's on yours?
The 8-bit era is one I remember fondly. Even games I played only once or twice at a friend’s house have earned a piece of real estate in my memory and, in some cases, my heart. So when I played Kid Tripp a few years ago on my iPhone, and back in November on the Switch, that sense of comfort and nostalgia came flooding back to me thanks to chunky pixel graphics, a catchy chiptune soundtrack, overt retro influences, and the accessible-yet-challenging gameplay. And I’m happy...
Though there are a few rough patches, Dave and Tami end up quite satisfied with their viewing of the PlayStation E3 2018 Media Briefing thanks to a couple big surprises and stellar showings from Spider-Man, Ghost of Tsushima, and The Last of Us: Part II.
The weekend has arrived once more, and with E3 now a mere memory, we can return to grabbing a few quiet moments with our Nintendo Switches. Team Nintendo Life has many a game on the go between them this week, so read on to hear which titles have grabbed our attention. And we want to hear from you too, so feel free to leave a vote and a comment below with your hot picks. Have a great weekend!
As a lone observer and commentator, Dave takes in the Ubisoft E3 2018 Press Conference. It's another solid showing for the publisher despite focusing mostly on known quantities. Trials Rising is a wonderful surprise, as is a Nintendo favorite character making an appearance in the toys-to-life Starlink, which looks better than any of us could have anticipated a year ago. Why don't you just watch and see what's what, eh?
Again, America's most lovable duo (trio if you count the sprawled-out Bailey residing in the background) sit down for another E3 press conference, this time the Bethesda Showcase. Dave and Tami don't feel it's the best presentation of them all, but overall it provides more than enough entertaining moments. In short: It's cool.
Dave and Bailey team up to endure the Square Enix Showcase together. It's the most underwhelming of all the E3 2018 presentations, so be prepared for a whole lot of meh. But there is an adorable dog in the scene. That's really all that matters, right?
During what is arguably the best press conference of E3 2018, Dave and Tami show their animated side as they get visibly excited over the many surprise announcements. Oh, and Bailey snores in the background on more than one occasion. She's what we like to call a party-pooper.
As Tami and Bailey both have prior engagements, Dave stations himself in his lonely little corner to watch Nintendo's E3 Nintendo Direct. But it's just fine, because there's not much happening here other than Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. Tune in for the sparse reactions, stay for the brief technical hiccups.
Dave and Tami sit down to watch the EA PLAY E3 2018 Press Conference. There weren't many highlights, so the focus is more on the reactions and commentary than the games themselves. The snarkiness is strong with this one.
With E3 2018 set to kick off this weekend with the showcases from many of the big publishers and platformer holders in the video game industry, we thought it was high time we cooked up a fresh batch of predictions. Team Nintendo Life has gathered together its collective hopes and dreams for the show - some realistic, some ridiculous.
When we last left Dave and Tami, they were slightly over halfway through Autumn Heights, the second world in Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze. Now it's time for them to finish off the "best video game world of all time" once and for all. As usual, much banter occurs in the process.
The third entry in the critically-acclaimed Runner series is here, and Dave has trotted around with the globe with CommanderVideo and friends to bring you an in-depth review. Does this three-quel live up to its excellent predecessor, or does it struggle to make it to the finish line?
