Working on 100% in Donkey Kong - almost there. Just two worlds to go.

Thinking about buying N++. It's going to happen - it just came out yesterday - but I'm going to take a nap first, and then I'll decide if I'm going to get it tonight or tomorrow :P

That game looks killer, and it's only $10! I may pick it up. :)

N++ is one of the best games on the Switch, if anyone's into platforming like I am. Amazing stuff.

My best friend just sold his Xbox One and is getting a Switch and just pre-ordered Pokemon Let's Go! Pikachu, so I'm gonna get the Eevee version. Everything about these games have both of us hyped as hell, other than apparently no battles with wild Pokemon, just the Pokemon Go Safari Zone-style fighting. That's okay I guess, as long as I get to continue fighting other trainers and progress through the gyms just like the original games. Tossing the Joy-Cons like a Pokeball is what I've been dreaming of. This is gonna rule.

I've read in some places that's just one of the games and there's a more traditional core game in the works for 2019.

Yeah, thankfully. It's nice that they're sort of pandering to the original old school crowd with those, and still continuing with the normal traditional releases. The franchise will never go away, haha.

I like how updates automatically download - came home a few nights ago and had the Donkey Kong DLC for Mario + Rabbids ready to go. Good stuff, very polished and makes the cost of the DLC more worth it than ever before. Might try to push through the whole thing tonight.

Got back into Xenoblade Chronicles 2 in a big way. There's still so much to do and I'm almost 180 hours in. Good lord.

Octopath Traveler demo: great stuff, but a couple characters bored me silly in their first arcs (being tired didn't help either). Some characters have annoying speech tendencies, and some of the plot points are generic as all get out, but I still have no idea what the overall plot will be so I'm hoping it gets really Final Fantasy-ish by endgame. The large battle sprites for boss enemies are so cool and I can't wait to see what kind of monsters are in store for later in the game.

Have you picked this up? I haven't had time nor money to get it but I want it. Same with Octopath.

I beat the Mario + Rabbids DK Adventure DLC last night by complete luck (final boss battle is cheap and the one subpar thing about the DLC). Extremely fun stuff that very clearly was a work of love, every bit as quality as the main game.

Waiting patiently for Monster Hunter Generations Ultimate.

Yeah. I picked up, played it for a couple days and then put it down. Didn't hold my attention as much as back in 98 unfortunately. Very well made though

Picked up Hollow Knight last week and man is this game beautiful. It's my first metroidvania type game but from what I've been told it's one of the better ones.

Finished up Hollow Knight and it was definitely one of the best games I've ever played. I've dumped nearly 50 hours into it and I only have a few side bosses and the "true" boss to beat but I did get the first ending already. I'm at 105% completion and I just want more. Can't wait for the new DLC.
