It’s not just Stardew Valley release day for the Nintendo Switch. Another celebrated indie, the Metroid homage Axiom Verge, is also now out for Nintendo’s system. That makes two Metroidy games released on portable Nintendo machines in just a few weeks. Is this real life?

Editor-in-Chief. Playing: Watch Dogs Legion (need to get back to RDR2, Iconoclasts, Arkham Origins, Sushi Striker, Samus Returns, and Ghost Recon Breakpoint)

I told myself I would finish Golf Story before I dove into anything else on the Switch, but then Stardew and Axiom came out. I’ve played both of them, but SWITCH!

Still need to kill the last metroid in Samus Returns, but Superstar Saga remake is out and Etrian Odyssey is coming.

Also playing Cuphead and still slowly working through Persona 5 on the side, but also Mario Odyssey later in the month and I want to get through Yakuza 0 and Kiwami and AGHGHH!!!! Too many games! It’s the best problem to have
