So, for the past couple of weeks I've been playing more games more regularly than usual. But not the ones you might expect. I've been playing New Super Mario Bros. U, Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, and Super Mario 3D Land. This is the age of gaming with a child in the house and I've decided to embrace it.
Because otherwise, it's gonna be pretty tough to play any games whatsoever.
Here's the thing: I'm really enjoying it. I dismissed New Super Mario Bros. U when it first came out. Turns out it's actually sorta excellent. I never found time to finish the brutally difficult Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, now I have a solid reason to do so.
And my son? He's lapping it. First thing he screams when I arrive home from work: "WANT TEE-DEE! WANT MARIO".
This a convenient relationship.
What are you playing this weekend?
