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

Game of the year so far for me is Octopath Traveler.

Looking forward to Mario Tennis Aces getting an update later this week. The core game of Tennis is really solid but it just seem to lack a bit of content once you were done with adventure mode. The new update should hopefully address this. ๐Ÿค“๐ŸŽพโœŒ๐Ÿป . . . . #mario #mariotennisaces #nintendo #switch #nintendoswitch #ironman #coffee #marvel #nintendolife #ninstagram #gamer #irishgamer #videogames #retrogames #retrogaming #collector #nostalgia #retrocollectiveireland #retrocollective #retrocollectiveeurope #nerd #geek

Absolutely in love with Torna the Golden Country. Its my new benchmark for how DLC should be. The new Titan of Torna is beautiful and all the little refinements they've made to the combat and game mechanics are great. It's left me dreaming of what it would be like if Breath of the Wild got this kind of treatment. 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 #sundaymorning #weekend at Kilcullen

My Star Wars cube collection. I got Rogue Leader with my GameCube at launch and it still remains one of my favourite GameCube games.

Finally getting around to playing the Xenoblade Chronicles 2 expansion, Torna - The Golden Country. Absolutely loved the main game and so far really liking the expansion. 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 at Kilcullen

Couch co-op, the best kind of multiplayer! Had some friends over yesterday and for the first time in years we sat on the couch together and played Double Dash for hours. Online is nice and all but you just can't beat seeing the reactions live on friends faces when you hit them with a blue shell or fall off the edge on Rainbow Road or thinking you've won the race but it's only the end of lap 2 (that was me ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ) ๐Ÿค“๐ŸŽฎโœŒ๐Ÿป . . . . #couchcoop #multiplayer #friends #nintendo #gamecube #mariokart #doubledash #nintendolife #gaming #gamer #instagamer #instagaming #irishgamer #videogames #hobbie #collector #iggn #nerd #nerdlife #geek #retrocollectiveireland

Nice little โ‚ฌ2 charity shop find this morning. Played this years ago when it released and really enjoyed it so I'm glad to have it back in the collection. I don't tend to play a lot of adventure games even though I quite enjoy them. Anyone else played this little gem? ๐Ÿค“๐ŸŽฎโœŒ๐Ÿป . . . . #hotelduskroom215 #ds #adventuregames #mysterynovel #nintendo #coffee #coffeeandgames #weekend #collecting #hobbie #gaming #gamer #nintendolife #ninstagram #retrogames #retrogaming #retrocollectiveireland #retrocollectiveeurope #retrocollective #videogames #irishgamer #instagaming #IGGN

Just wrapping up Octopath Traveler and is it just me or does anybody else get a real Game of Thrones vibe from this game? From the large ensemble cast each with their own tale to the setting it just screams GOT to me. I wouldn't be surprised to learn that the developers are big fans of the books/show. ๐Ÿค“๐ŸŽฎโœŒ๐Ÿป . . . . #gameofthrones #octopathtraveler #squareenix #jrpg #nintendo #switch #nintendoswitch #nintendolife #gaming #gamer #instagamer #instagaming #irishgamer #videogames #hobbie #collector #iggn #nerd #nerdlife #geek #retrocollectiveireland #booksofinstagram #reading

Currently steam rolling my way through all the chapter 4's in Octopath Traveler. Spent a lot of time grinding so pretty over levelled now. I've really enjoyed this game for the past few weeks and will be sad when it ends. ๐Ÿค“๐ŸŽฎโœŒ๐Ÿป . . . . #octopathtraveler #squareenix #jrpg #nintendo #switch #nintendoswitch #nintendolife #gaming #gamer #instagamer #instagaming #irishgamer #videogames #hobbie #collector #iggn #nerd #nerdlife #geek #retrocollectiveireland at Wild Atlantic Gweedore

Having a nice relaxing morning with Annie. About to start the Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Torna expansion. Was kind of surprised to find a cart in the box, half expected it to be a download code. It also comes with a code for extra content in the main game which is nice.

Testing out the NES games on the Switch this morning. The selection is very limited but it is great to be able to play the classics on the Switch finally. Hopefully more will be added soon and games from some other systems too would be nice too. ๐Ÿค“๐ŸŽฎโœŒ๐Ÿป . . . . #nes #retro #nintendo #switch #nintendoswitch #nintendolife #ninstagram #videogames #gamer #instagamer #instagaming #irishgamer #geek #nerd #nerdlife #collector #iggn #hobbie #switchonline #retrocollective #retrocollectiveireland #mario #zelda

Took a couple of weeks away from Octopath but back on it now and and will complete it soon. Spend a good chunk of time grinding and levelling up everyone. Most of the party are up to level 60 now at the start if chapter 3 so I should breeze through to the end.

Have to say I really didn't see this coming, Civilization 6 on the Switch. I was a big fan of these games but the last game in the main series I played was 3 back in the early 2000's. Soon after I fell out of PC gaming altogether. This is now my most anticipated Switch game. What games are you all looking forward too? ๐Ÿค“๐ŸŽฎโœŒ๐Ÿป . . . . #civilization #pcgaming #nintendo #switch #nintendoswitch #nintendolife #ninstagram #retro #retrocollectiveireland #irishgamer #gamer #videogames #nerd #geek #nerdlife #collector #iggn #hobbie at Kilcullen

It's Sunday morning so that usually means Switch and coffee for me. Taking a break from the level grinding in Octopath Traveler to actually play the game ๐Ÿ˜‚ Almost done with everybody's chapter three now.

Taking a little break from Octopath to play through this masterpiece again. Played it originally on the 360 so playing the fancier Xbox one version is nice. This would be a 10/10 game for me. What game would you give a perfect 10? ๐Ÿค“๐ŸŽฎโœŒ๐Ÿป . . . . #metalgearsolid #kojima #stealth #xbox #xboxone #xboxgamer #gaming #gamer #instagamer #instagaming #irishgamer #videogames #hobbie #collector #iggn #nerd #nerdlife #geek
