Bomb Rush Cyberfunk, Eastward, TOEM, Shovel Knight: Pocket Dungeon, Metal Slug Tactics, Tetris Effect: Connected, FAR: Changing Tides, Loop Hero, Hundred Days: Winemaking Simulator, Gang Beasts, Astroneer, and LumbearJack were all featured. Axiom Verge 2, Boyfriend Dungeon, Necrobarista: Final Pour, Islanders, Garden Story, Slime Rancher: Plortable Edition, and Curious Expedition 2 all came out on Wednesday. You can catch up on all of the news in the recap announcement post here.

Highlights from last week’s topic: What are you playing? – August 2021
Currently, no major title has caught my eye too much. Played a bit of Disgaea 6 throughout July, and may go back to it soon.
In the meantime, I took advantage of some sales and bought a few small Kemco RPGs I plan to get into this weekend, along with Stonefly.
I just started playing Youkai Watch 4++ yesterday and it’s a really fun game. The Switch being region free is truly a blessing.
I’m not playing any of the new releases. Xenoblade 2, Romance of the Three Kingdom XIV, and Kirby Fighters 2 are the ones I’m juggling with on Switch right now. Naturally, I know that my time will end up gravitating towards the first of these in the coming days.
I’ve also booted Mario Party 10 on the Wii U for some multiplayer fun. I know it is far from being among the best MP, but it is still a pretty fun game. (It also was a good excuse to change batteries on Wii Remotes lol)
My 3DS is not seeing much action, but I’ve recently finished Apollo Justice while I wait for The Great Ace Attorney Chronicles. It’s such a great franchise, I can’t wait for AA7.
