I'd love to see a new top down 2d style Zelda game come to the Switch. I love what Nintendo did with did with a Link to the Past and a Link Between Worlds so maybe a follow up to Link's Awakening? ๐Ÿค“๐ŸŽฎโœŒ๐Ÿป . . . . #zelda #thelegendofzelda #linksawakening #alinkbetweenworlds #gameboy #gameboycolor #3ds #switch #nintendoswitch #nintendo #collecting #hobbie #gaming #gamer #nintendolife #ninstagram #retrogames #retrogaming #retrocollectiveireland #retrocollectiveeurope #retrocollective #videogames #irishgamer #instagaming #nerdlife #geek #nerd at Kilcullen

Just one more day before Smash Bros Ultimate releases. Who is picking it up tomorrow? I'm just a casual fan of the series so not majorly hyped but I'll probably pick it up sooner rather than later after sitting out the Wii U version. ๐Ÿค“โœŒ๐Ÿป๐ŸŽฎ . . . . #supersmashbros #supersmashbrosultimate #supersmashbrosmelee #gamecube #switch #nintendoswitch #nintendo #collecting #hobbie #gaming #gamer #nintendolife #ninstagram #retrogames #retrogaming #retrocollectiveireland #retrocollectiveeurope #retrocollective #videogames #irishgamer #instagaming #nerdlife #geek #nerd at Kilcullen

It's my birthday today ๐ŸŽ‰ and my wife surprised me with this adorable Commodore 64 mini ๐Ÿ˜ Don't have the original anymore so looking forward to updating the firmware and adding all my favourite C64 classics to it.

The Super Nintendo might just be my favourite system and a Link to the Past is for sure my favourite SNES game.

My pick for my personal game of the year is without a doubt Octopath Traveler. This game was an absolute joy from start to finish. It has everything, from the gorgeous stylised visuals, the epic soundtrack and the old school grindy RPG gameplay complete with random encounters ๐Ÿ˜ This game was tailor made for me!

Anybody finished Red Dead yet? Would love to hear your final thoughts.

Who's still loving Red Dead? I'm a few hours in and really having a blast with it. The controls are clunky AF but the visuals, story and atmosphere are sensational. Going to take my time with this one and put off the main campaign so I can fully explore what the game has to offer. Happy trails cowpokes! ๐Ÿค ๐ŸŽโœŒ๐Ÿป . . . . #reddeadredemption2 #rockstargames #microsoft #xbox #xboxone #collecting #hobbie #gaming #gamer #nintendolife #ninstagram #retrogames #retrogaming #retrocollectiveireland #retrocollectiveeurope #retrocollective #videogames #irishgamer #instagaming #IGGN #sunday #coffee #nerdlife #geek at Kilcullen

Jumping on this bandwagon this morning! Just a couple of hours in and really enjoying it so far. What does everyone think, does it merit the 10/10 review scores it's been getting? As a side note I traded in my OG Xbox One to @gamestopne for this new S model that came with a Forza Horizon 4 download and Red Dead physical. Just had to pay โ‚ฌ60 and give 2 old games too, not a bad deal I thought. ๐Ÿค ๐ŸŽโœŒ๐Ÿป . . . . #reddeadredemption2 #rockstargames #microsoft #xbox #xboxone #collecting #hobbie #gaming #gamer #nintendolife #ninstagram #retrogames #retrogaming #retrocollectiveireland #retrocollectiveeurope #retrocollective #videogames #irishgamer #instagaming #IGGN #sunday #coffee #nerdlife #geek at Kilcullen

I love Super Mario Bros 3 so much. It's my favourite of all the 2d Mario games for sure and probably my favourite NES game.

Resi 4, the best in the series? Or the game that ruined the franchise for years to come by moving from it's survival horror roots to the more action orientated style we'd see in 5 and 6? Personally I love it (and 5) but I much prefer the older style of play. ๐Ÿค“๐ŸŽฎโœŒ๐Ÿป . . . . #residentevil #residentevil4 #halloween #horror #survivalhorror #gamecube #nintendo #retro #weekend #collecting #hobbie #gaming #gamer #nintendolife #ninstagram #retrogames #retrogaming #retrocollectiveireland #retrocollectiveeurope #retrocollective #videogames #irishgamer #instagaming #IGGN at Raccoon City

Really enjoying Ys VIII so far. The story is pretty interesting, combat is great and exploring the island is a lot of fun. The music is fantastic but unfortunately the graphics aren't great. Looks a little grainy to me, more like a Wii game. The visuals however aren't detracting from my enjoyment of the game so far. ๐Ÿค“๐ŸŽฎโœŒ๐Ÿป . . . . #ysviii #coffee #weekend #jrpg #rpg #switch #nintendoswitch #nintendo #collecting #hobbie #gaming #gamer #nintendolife #ninstagram #retrogames #retrogaming #retrocollectiveireland #retrocollectiveeurope #retrocollective #videogames #irishgamer #instagaming #nerdlife #geek #nerd at Kilcullen

My next adventure on the Switch, Ys VIII.

Will we see anymore Wii U games on Switch? If so what would you like to see? Pikmin 3 and Yoishi's Woolly World would be great as I think they're both the best games in their respective franchises. They've both got sequels in the way so probably won't happen. Tokyo Mirrage Sessions and Xenoblade Chronicles X would be nice for the RPG fans. ๐Ÿค”๐ŸŽฎ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป . . . . #wiiu #nintendo #switch #nintendoswitch #nintendolife #gaming #gamer #instagamer #instagaming #irishgamer #videogames #hobbie #collector #iggn #nerd #nerdlife #geek #retrocollectiveeurope #retrocollectiveireland #gamer #nintendogamer at Kilcullen

Finished Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Torna the Golden Country yesterday and I loved every minute of it. I adored the main game too but it could get bogged down with endless tutorials at times and held back a lot of the gameplay mechanics till later in the game. Not so with the expansion it's a super condensed, more pure form of the main game. ๐Ÿค“๐ŸŽฎโœŒ๐Ÿป . . . . #tornathegoldencountry #xenobladechronicles2 #xenobladechronicles #jrpg #rpg #switch #nintendoswitch #nintendo #collecting #hobbie #gaming #gamer #nintendolife #ninstagram #retrogames #retrogaming #retrocollectiveireland #retrocollectiveeurope #retrocollective #videogames #irishgamer #instagaming #nerdlife #geek #nerd #sunday #sundaymorn #weekend at Kilcullen

Praise the sun! Just rescued my Solaire Amiibo from the post office collection depot because I missed the postman yesterday. After the Switch version of the remaster was delayed I picked the game up on the Xbox because I didn't want to wait. Not sure now if I'll get it on the Switch or not. Playing Dark Souls on the go sounds mighty tempting though. Who is picking up Dark Souls for the Switch? ๐Ÿค“๐ŸŽฎโœŒ๐Ÿป . . . #praisethesun #darksouls #darksoulsremastered #solaireofastora #amiibo #nintendo #switch #xboxone #collecting #hobbie #gaming #gamer #nintendolife #ninstagram #retrogames #retrogaming #retrocollectiveireland #retrocollectiveeurope #retrocollective #videogames #irishgamer #instagaming #IGGN at Kilcullen
