What I’ve been up to
I’ve been traveling a bunch, so I haven’t seen any new movies lately, but I bought a bunch of movies and played a few switch games. I’ll get back into my normal routine next week.
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild: Master Mode (Nintendo Switch)
I finally started Master Mode in Breath of the Wild. 3 Shrines, 4 Deaths, and 1.25 Hours so far. I’m hoping to finish the game in about 40 hours with under 100 deaths, but I guess we’ll have to wait and see what happens.
Super Mario Odyssey (Nintendo Switch)
I’ve wanted to replay Super Mario Odyssey for a while, and since the main story isn’t too long, it shouldn’t be that difficult. So far, I’ve only gone through a couple of kingdoms, but I still absolutely love the hat-throw/jump combos. I’ve always had a soft spot for 3D Mario Games, I’m really looking forward to experiencing the worlds of Mario Odyssey again.
Pokemon Let’s Go Eevee (Nintendo Switch)
My wife has finished Pokemon Let’s Go Eevee! She really enjoyed it, probably more than I’ve enjoyed Pikachu. I’m excited to pick up Sword & Shield later this year.
Yoshi’s Crafted World (Nintendo Switch)
Yoshi’s Crafted World has all the charm of Yoshi’s Wooly World, and it’s perfect to play in handheld mode. As far as 2D platformers go, I prefer the standard Mario Bros games, but when I want a slow paced, relaxed game, Yoshi’s Crafted World is perfect.
Madden 2020 (XBOX One S)
I’ve never been a huge Madden fan, but when it was announced that, fellow Texas Tech Red Raider, Patrick Mahomes II was going to be on the cover, my wife and I were so excited that we bought it anyway. We only had time to play one game before quickly leaving town, but we liked it. We played a quick game against each other, one of us as the Chiefs, and one of us as the Patriots. I look forward to playing more, especially if there’s a mode similar to Madden 18’s Longshot.
What I’m looking forward to
So far in 2019 I’ve replayed a few games, Pikmin 3, Assassin’s Creed 4, Arkham Asylum, Arkham City, and more. I made a list of games that I’d like to replay before the year is over, it includes Mario Odyssey, Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle, Breath of the Wild, Spider-Man, and Arkham Knight. I’m hoping to be able to get to all of them this year, but I’m not sure what the rest of the year holds.
