It’s a new year which means it’s a chance to get started on the things you have been meaning to do, but have been putting off. For a gamer it may mean finally playing some games that have been sitting on your shelf for a while. In an attempt to fit more gaming into my schedule, here’s a quick little update on what I have been playing during the holidays and into the start of 2020!
Ever since I got a Nintendo Switch one of the games I adore picking up from my, albeit, small Switch library is Super Smash Bros. Ultimate. I often play as Kirby because, well, what’s not to like about Kirby? He’s cute, pink, and effective in most of the matches I play. Getting in a quick game or two during the times my schedule is particularly tight gives me the opportunity to not only unlock the remaining characters I’m still missing from my fighter roster, but also a chance to try out some other characters I may or may not be aware of from Nintendo’s sprawling video game history. When I’m not so inclined to play as Kirby, there have been four standout characters I like to play as from time to time.
The summer season tends to encourage people to go outside or plan vacations. Other times it’s a good reason to catch up on other leisure pursuits, like gaming. My summer has been getting away from me with vacations, social engagements, and general errands that have been keeping my schedule jam packed. But I have managed to fit an hour or two of gaming on some weeknights and weekends.
Making the jump to buy a Nintendo Switch last year has been one of the best decisions I ever made. The console is worth the hype and praise it has been getting since the time of its release, and I’m pleased with everything this light and small device is capable of. While I still have a ways to go before my collection of Switch games become an impressive display of the best titles to play on the console, I’m already in good company with the few I have. Among those cherished few is Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
