So apparently why I was a sleep Nintendo decided to announce the two Pokémon versions for Nintendo Switch. As been rumored for a while the titles are
Pokémon Let’s Go: Pikachu and Pokémon Let’s Go: Eevee.
The game looks so much better than I thought it would actually, for me who had my Pokémon glory days with Blue, Red and Yellow this title really speaks to me. Since it seems like it’s the original 151 Pokémon, plus the Alola forms and a new never before seen Pokémon. And we’ll be returning to the Kanto region, seems like a perfect fit for me. I’ll miss some of my favorite Pokémon from Gold and Silver. But perhaps they’ll update the game to add more Pokémon in the future?
Here are some of the features for the game
- Pokémon Go like catching
- Inspired by Pokémon Yellow, not a remake
- Eevee and Pikachu customization
- No random battles (Yes!)
- Local co-op and local battling
- No wild battles, you can only battle Pokémon trainers (This one sounds weird…)
Sure the game is taking a bit of (okay a lot) inspiration from Pokémon Go, but I think it works out pretty good. In the video at least. Perhaps this will be the time I finally try Pokémon Go? We’ll see. If this isn’t to your taste, they are releasing a real mainline Pokémon game next year. It will follow in the same style as X, Y and Sun, Moon.
Before I end this post I’ll leave you with one more thing, the game will be released on November 16th. So it will be a bit of a blast to the past for me again.
I usually don’t post stuff anymore of what I’ve bought, but perhaps I’m going to start with that again. So here are some of the stuff I’ve bought since mid April.
God of War was fantastic! And one of the best games I’ve played this year and in fact the game that got me out of my gaming slump. I’ve felt like no other game really mattered after I finished Xenoblade Chronicles 2, so I’m glad to be back again. I had Dragon Quest Builders for the PS4, but wanted to play it on the go instead. And I wanted it on the Switch, because I’m going to buy Builders 2 for the Switch if it’s released in the west.
I’ve owned .Hack G.U Last Recode before but traded it away. Not it seems like it’s harder to get a hold of, so I snagged a copy again. Been wanting to try the Yakuza series and see what all the fuss is about. Just have to get some time to be able to play it too…
Since I was never a fan of the Wii U, I missed out of a couple of great games. And since I love my Switch so much, I was going to fix this little problem. The problem of missing certain games of course. So far it’s been fun and a bit frustrating, but it’s nice to play a Donkey Kong game again. I’m going to try and buy every Wii U game that is ported to Switch. So perhaps it’s time for Captain Toad next time.

Here is part two of my series of preordered games. It’s not the games I’m looking forward to in 2018, but rather I’ll talk about the games I’ve preordered and are coming out this year. If nothing happens to delay them, something I can’t foresee when I’m writing this. I’m splinting this into multiple posts, just so one post doesn’t get to long an clotted. AS of now there is no part three, but I’m guessing that will change after E3.
If any of the games there will be released this year.
Back in February I made a bigger post about this game, but in Swedish. If you are interested to see my thoughts about it, you can read it here. Well since that post we’ve actually gotten a release date, it will come out in the beginning of September, more precise the 4th. God I’m looking forward to this! So glad they are adding voice-acting into the version in west. And some other fixes.
Another one of those games I’ve been looking forward to since it was announced and as soon as we got the release date I quickly preordered it. It’s a shame it will be released 3 days after Dragon Quest XI, that means I’ll probably have to wait a bit with DQ before I start it, because I want to give it my complete focus.
And the same with Spider-Man.
Kingdom Hearts… Well what can I say?
Supposed to the end of Sora’s story arc and hopefully tie some of the story together in a good way. But I’m mostly excited for the new worlds, Toy Story, Monsters Inc, Tangled, Big Hero 6 to name a few. With rumors of this one release around November, this will be my Christmas game this year. Just like the first game was, all those years ago when it released.
While I do not know much more about the game beside the title and that we get to play as the third horseman (woman) Fury. I’m just glad the Darksiders series is back and I sure do hope this does well so we can get a fourth game with Strife.
I’m just hoping in style and quality this title is more like the first and much less like the second one..
Can’t wait to see more from this game! The last Smash Bros game I played was Melee for the GameCube, so I’m really itching to get back into the fun. Keeping my fingers more Xenoblade representatives joins the battle, would love to see Elma from Xenoblade Chronicles X appear in the game. Either was I preordered this was as soon as I knew it was available for preorder. Now like with all other stuff in here, we play the waiting game. (Do I need to preorder that game too?)

Now to something a bit different but still a bit familiar. This time is not a list of games
I want, but games I’ve preordered. So this time around it’s not the games I’m looking forward to in 2018, but rather I’ll speak a bit of the the games I’ve preordered and are coming out this year. If nothing happens to delay them, something I can’t foresee when I’m writing this. I’m splinting this post up into parts of 5 games per post, so it doesn’t get to clotted.
Firstly we’ll start with something that isn’t really a preorder? Or is it? Either way I’ve been waiting for Bloodstained ever since I donated to the Kickstarter and hopefully nothing happens and we’ll finally see a release this year. Well I’m really looking forward to getting a new “Igavania” like game, it could actually be one of the games I’m looking forward to most this year. I’m also thinking about buying a second copy of the game, since my Kickstarter copy is a PlayStation 4 version, I might buy a Switch version.
I never was a fan of the Wii U, so I skipped a bunch of games on the console. But this time around with the Switch I’m going to buy as much of the games Nintendo put out.
I really want to support them. So I’m extra glad they are releasing Tropical Freeze, so I a Wii U deserter can have a chance to play this fun looking game.
Hyrule Warriors was one of the titles I actually played on Wii U, but got a bit pissed when the 3DS got a version with a whole lot of improvements. That Switch owners where locked out of, but they are finally fixing this little misstep (IMO).
With the Switch version is brings the best of both versions of the game.
I’m not sure how many Shining games we got outside of Japan, at least the none SRPG ones. Not so interested in those myself, but I’m very interested in this title.
Firstly I really like Tony Taka’s artstyle, especially how he draws elfs. Mmm…
But it looks like a fun JRPG, with battles in the vein of the Tales of games. And it’s based heavily around music and the characters weapons are also instruments and that is very intriguing to me.
I wasn’t very into this game from the start, but the more I saw and saw of my friend trying the demo, it sold me on the game. It looks charming and at the same time I feel relaxed and happy when I see the sprites in this game. Time will tell if this preorder was a wise one, since I’m still a bit on the fence about this one.
Sure, Shining Resonance might not be a wise buy either. But I’m taking my chance with both and I hope they’ll be great.
So I woke up this morning not feeling all to well, must have been something I ate.
But pretty quickly my queasiness turned into excitement. Because I woke up to news that we are getting two new Rare Blades. This Friday, the 27th! Oh happy days!
Well that in itself is good, but what really got me excited was that one of these Rare Blades are T-elos from Xenosaga Episode III! YEAH!!
More Xenosaga characters in Xenoblade. So happy with this news and I just love Kouichi Mugitani (CHOCO) artstyle so damn much. Really happy to see him getting more of his designs into Xenoblade 2. T-elos will be available to all who has finished the game and its said to have a pretty high rate of appearing in a Core Crystal.
I sure hope so, wouldn’t want another KOS-MOS grind on my hand.
The other Rare Blade that has been revealed is Poppi Buster. A clone(?) version of Poppi that any character can use. She is exclusive to those who buy or have bought the Expansion pass. This Poppi is a bit more yellow and seems to have an antenna on her head. Oh and right, she has her own freaking mech! Probably where the “Buster” part comes in!
Either way Poppi Buster is looking rather cool! Well at least the Nopon like mech is, she will be obtainable via a quest ingame. Man I’m so looking forward to getting back into this game again, it feels like it never stops giving.
I guess that’s why I’m having such a hard time to let it go. They also said they have finished voice recording for a new Rare Blade that will also be released, a bit unsure if it will be coming with this update or at a later date.
I sure do hope T-elos will be using the scythe in the artwork, really looking forward to add her to my group. Bring me more Xenosaga characters MonolithSoft and Bandai Namco, or even better. Bring me a Xenosaga HD Collection.

We finally have confirmation of when Dragon Quest XI will be released in the west.
The release date is September 4 for PlayStation 4 and Steam.
So just a few months away! Great news, for me at least is that they will add voice acting. The Japanese original release didn’t have voices at all. It will feature some fixes and changes, you can see them a bit down on this post.
Here are some of the stuff they are adding and fixing to the game.
- English Voiceover
- Draconian Quest, a hard mode that offers additional challenges for more experienced players.
- Overhauled Menus & UI, with graphical enhancements and more intuitive navigation.
- Camera Mode, allowing players to take in views of the beautiful landscape, character renders and ferocious monsters in detail.
- A New Dash Function and many other system enhancements such as improved character and camera movement
They have confirmed that they will not release the 3DS version, but they will release the Nintendo Switch version in both Europe and America when it is released.
Much later. At least they’ve confirmed it’s coming, but we still don’t know if it will be an upgraded 3DS version or the same version released on PS4.
I’m just glad we finally have a date, even if it’s about five months away. At least now I have something to look forward to. Might even take a vacation day to enjoy it fully.

It finally happened! Last Thursday night, Super Smash Bros for the Nintendo Switch was announced! And hold on to your hats… It’s coming this year! Oh, yeah!!
And that’s more or less where the news ends. Sadly.
We know two things at least, the Splatoon Inklings will be in the game and Link will have his Breath of The Wild appearance. Here you can see the announcement video.
From the teaser video we can at least see Bowser, Donkey Kong and Samus. Them plus Mario, Link and Inklings are in. Now the fun has begun to see and speculate if we can guess who the other fighters are going to be. I personally hope we get some more representatives from the Xenoblade Chronicles games.
Would love to have Elma from Xenoblade Chronicles X in the game. If we get more third party characters, I’d love to see Shovel Knight and Shantae in the game.
Well we can speculate all we want and we shall! Another thing is that a lot of people think this is an upgraded version of the Smash Bros game that was released on Wii U.
While that could be the case, I’m going to believe this is a completely new title and not an upgraded port. If I’m wrong I’m wrong, but I hope this is completely new.
What new characters do you want to see? What returning ones? I’m not so sure about returning ones but I’d love to see Mega Man X in the fight. Elma as I said before, someone from Xenoblade Chronicles 2, maybe Rex with Pyra & Mythra.
Ehh… Sorry can’t think of many more right now. Sorry.
I’m thinking, like many others that Smash Bros will launch sometime in September, since it seems like Nintendo’s Online service will be up by then. Well see if it turns out to be true, I guess and hope we’ll know more at this years E3.
