Hack and slash games aren’t something I’m normally interested in, but The Legend of Zelda-themed Hyrule Warriors: Definitive Edition from Koei Tecmo developers Omega Force and Team Ninja for Nintendo Switch was something I thought I’d try if for no other reason than to actually play a Zelda game as the rapier-wielding Princess Zelda.
This past Tuesday, September 18th, Nintendo Switch Online released around 11 pm Eastern. With it came a Nintendo Entertainment System emulator. Twenty games are currently available with the launch, and I thought a run-through of Super Mario Bros. was in order. Via warp zones and with sweaty palms on the Pro Controller, I made quick work of Bowser’s assault on the Mushroom Kingdom.
Super Mario Bros. 2 is missing at launch, but Super Mario Bros. 3 is included, so that’s next up for me. It’s a game I haven’t played in forever, and I’m considering a warp whistle-free run since the emulator conveniently includes save point creation. Look for screenshots from that run in the near future!
With the Battle for Azeroth expansion rapidly approaching in Blizzard’s World of Warcraft, I’ve been working on tying up some loose ends on my Dwarf Paladin.
Yesterday was the Pokémon GO Community Day for July, and it was the first one in which I participated. With my phone fully charged, I headed down to the pond at the local park to catch Squirtle, lots and lots of Squirtle.
