Regardless of if I planned for it to happen or not, my Nintendo Switch games collection has certainly grown a fair bit over the last few months. After using up some Nintendo Points, a few gift cards and striking lucky with some sales, I’ve somehow managed to pick up a great selection of games. Even though my backlog has grown significantly, we can kind of look past that for the time being!
First up is the physical games that I’ve added to my collection. I’ve added three new games to my collection. These being Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends of the Secret Fairy, Immortals Fenyx Rising and Kitaria Fables.
I’ve had my eye on these games for a little while now. Immortals Fenyx Rising I’ve played a bit before on Xbox One, but felt that it was more of a game I’d enjoy more on Nintendo Switch. One that I could curl up with on the sofa wrapped up in a blanket at the end of the day. Kitaria Fables is a recent release, and I picked up due to the mix of RPG gameplay mixed with a bit of crafting and farming. I mean, we know I like a good farming game anyway.
As for Atelier Ryza 2: Lost Legends of the Secret Fairy, I’ve been on the fence about diving into the franchise for a while. I previously owned Atelier Lydie & Suelle: The Alchemists and the Mysterious Paintings, which I had picked up on a whim but as I never played it, I ended up trading it in. I went back and forth trying to figure out where to start with the franchise, as there really are so many different games to chose from. After talking to some friends, I was told that the most recent release would be a good place to start and that it wasn’t too much of an issue if I hadn’t played the first in Atelier Ryza game as I would be able to easily catch up. I kept the game on my watch list and eventually picked it up brand new from eBay for just under £20!
Now, on to the recent games that I’ve picked up from the Nintendo eShop. I picked up four games in the end, and they really are pretty varied from one another. My first purchase was the cute cat game Calico. I’ve been toying with this game for a while and heard mixed opinions about it, but as it was on sale I thought, why not give it a go. The second game that I picked up was BioShock: Infinite. I’ve played this a few times in the past, and it was also my introduction to the BioShock franchise. I loved this game and every challenge it threw at me, so I’m excited to be playing it on Nintendo Switch again soon.
This next game I’ve been interested in for a little while and is one I plan to write a little more about soon. This is the game NOSTALGIC TRAIN. I’m not too sure what drew me to this game initially or whether it was just the sheer curiosity about the game, but I’m looking forward to starting this game soon.
The last game I purchased was more for nostalgic reasons than anything else. The game in question is Project Highrise. It was actually my parents who pointed me in the direction of this game being on sale, as I had mentioned something about the game Sim Tower during a conversation one night. I remember my parents both playing this when I was younger and teaching me how to play as well. Although it’s not Sim Tower, it looks very similar from the trailer. Either way, I’m sure I’ll enjoy playing.
I can definitely say that I’ve got plenty of games to keep me going for the time being. I just need to finish off a couple more before I start on these. At least that is the plan at the moment.
Have you added any new games to your collection lately?
