I am playing old games. Lots of old games. I'm playing Metroid Prime on my Wii U. I'm playing Grim Fandango on the PS Vita. I just got a download code o=for Majora's Mask on the 3DS. Is this 2015 or am I in the midst of a weird fever dream?
I'm also considering — talk me out of this — getting into Monster Hunter 4 on the 3DS. I've heard reports that while it's a completely different game there is a similar 'can't stop playing' vibe to Dark Souls. I've played a little bit of Monster Hunter previously, and really enjoyed the weight and feel of it. There's a large part of me that thinks I could get into Monster Hunter in a very, very big way.
What else? I might start Captain Toad. I recently got a copy, and I think this firmly falls into the 'games I can play while my son is awake' category. That's very good news. I liked the Captain Toad puzzles in Super Mario 3D World so I don't see why I won't like this.
