Weekend Whatcha’ Playin’


The weekend is a bastion of gaming goodness. For most of us working or going to school through the week this is our time to stay up late, or kick back all day, playing whatever tickles our fancy.

First off I figured this would be as good a place as any to discuss why content on the site has slowed to a crawl these last two weeks, with no new articles this week and Photo Mode going from daily, to thrice weekly, to almost nothing.

My personal life has been incredibly hectic, especially within the last week, and it has kept me extremely busy. Photo Mode has been quiet because I’ve been playing a ton of God of War, and I’ve found it is incredibly hard to take captivating photos of Kratos that don’t have spoilers in them.

That being said I should have much more content next week, with my review on Blossom Tales as well as several articles planned to be posted. So for the 2 or 3 of you who care, content is on the way!

This weekend I’m going to focus all of my energy on two games.

Splatoon 2

We have a Splatfest that starts at 11PM CST tonight, and I cannot wait to get on and rep for Mikey. This has been part of a tournament style Splatfest, the first ever, where the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are facing off over the course of the month.

Last week Raphael and Leonardo went head to head, with my chosen champion Raph leaving triumphant. This week it is crowd favorite Michelangelo versus the underdog Donatello. As I stated before, I’ll be backing my Cowabunga shouting, nunchuck wielding, pizza eating, party dude.


Donkey Kong Tropical Freeze


I’ve been utterly enamored with the Switch version of this game since I’ve picked it up, and cannot wait to continue my journey this weekend. I’m almost through the second world, contenting myself only with 100% completion along the way.

Look for my review of it coming in the next couple of weeks, but as a spoiler it is an utter platforming masterpiece and you should be playing it.


So, what will you be playing this weekend? Are you planning to Turf War it up in Splatoon 2 reppin’ your favorite turtle? Let me know in the comments below.

  1. Great to hear you’re enjoying Tropical Freeze. I’d planned to get it on the wii u, but decided to wait when the Switch version was announced. Haven’t picked it up yet but am really excited about playing it.

  2. I loved Tropical Freeze on Wii U and awarded it my Game of the Year the year it released. I’m sure the Switch version is absolutely ace.

    I’m out of town this weekend, but I brought my Vita to play the JRPG The Caligula Effect. However, I haven’t found time to actually play anything and I head back home tomorrow. Ah well.
