GoNintendo Thought: What are you playing this weekend?

Hope you had a great week, my friends. I also hope you have lots of gaming fun ahead of you this weekend!
As always, thanks for reading.

Through work, chores, and other obligations, we made it. The weekend is here, my friends! That means it's time to play some games! I hope you have a lot of great stuff lined up for yourself this weekend. Here's what I'm planning on spending time with.

I can honestly say that at the start of this week, I had no idea I'd be playing Fortnite again. I played the game for roughly 2 years when it first came out, and then I eventually shelved it. This was because I played online with friends, but our schedules fell out of sync, and we couldn't find the time to meet up online anymore. Playing online alone was still fun, just not as much fun.

It took a bit of time, but the stars have aligned, and now we can all jump in again on the fun once more. The game has certainly changed over the last couple of years, but the core gameplay remains the same. I've slipped right back into the action and have been having a blast!

I honestly think that's all I'll be playing this weekend! Something else might pop up, but I don't have any other titles in mind right now.

What are you playing this weekend? Hit us up in the comments below and share your plans.

Darkestville Castle - more gameplay

Everything in Darkestville was fine and dandy: I was tormenting the town people, the town people were being tormented… It was a fair deal! Who could complain? Not me, that’s for sure! …until that moron, Dan Teapot, hired a group of professional demon hunters to banish me! I don’t even know why he has a grudge against me. Maybe I burnt his house a couple of times, but I only did it because it was hilarious!

Image & Form says they "certainly haven't made" their last SteamWorld game, and Switch is part of the plan moving forward

Things are getting steamy

SteamWorld Tower Defense, Dig 1 and 2, Heist, and Quest are all part of the SteamWorld universe. It's been a hugely successful franchise for Image & Form, and you can bet they aren't ready to shelve the series yet. In an interview with Kotaku, CEO Brjann Sigurgeirsson had this to say.

“SteamWorld is indeed closely associated with Nintendo, and we certainly haven’t made our last SteamWorld game. Nintendo Switch (and future Nintendo consoles) are natural parts of those plans.”

Careful out there

Pokemon Co. has released a statement in Japan about a rather unforutnate situation. It seems that a number of different fake Pokemon Center Online websites have popped up, and they're nothing more than phishing scams to steal credit card info.

Recently, it has been confirmed that personal information is stolen and the credit card is illegally used on a fake website masquerading as "Pokemon Center Online", the official online shopping site for Pokemon goods.

In addition, please contact the nearest police station if you are affected by such a site.
