So the Switch is great when you are mid-move…

With all of my games boxed up and ready to move, plus just being really busy, my gaming options have been a little slim lately.

But I did get a few games in this week thanks to the portable power of the Switch!

Donut County

I did the formal review last week, but you can’t really explain Donut County in a way to convince people to try it.

If you do, a fun light puzzler awaits.  If you don’t, there isn’t enough hype to remind you it exists anyway.

Donut County is fun, light, and is a great game for the Switch.  I recommend checking it out if you get the chance!

Tetris 99

There is always something soothing about a game of Tetris.  This week my games have been a lot harsher than normal though.  I had a few weeks at my normal Top 30 to Top 10, but this week I have had many games in a row where I was in the first 10 to be knocked out this week!

I did end the week with a very satisfying win though, so that made up for the frustration really well 😀

Well this was a fun way to start. A few pieces in, and the pressure starts to mount

Final Fantasy X

Final Fantasy is a series I love.  One general truth I have observed over the years is that the ‘best’ Final Fantasy game tends to be the first one that people played.

Final Fantasy X doesn’t even crack my top 5 favourite Final Fantasy games, and I don’t remember even finishing X-2.  But X does have my second favourite mini-game in the series – BLITZBALL!

I don’t know if I will finish Final Fantasy X properly on the Switch, or just have a portable Blitzball league. I have a few hours to go before I get to that stage, so I will see how I feel then.

It looks amazing, and plays just like I remember – warts and all 🙂

What about you?  I hope you got some great games in.  Let me know what I missed playing this week!  Shout out on Facebook or @JohnHQLD me on Twitter!

Until tomorrow,
