It’s difficult to believe that another year has come and gone, isn’t it? So much happened this past year in the world of gaming and blogging for us. One of the biggest events was probably us hunting around until we found a Nintendo Switch of our own. The success of Nintendo’s latest console has been phenomenal, and we’re lucky to be part of it!
Thanks to the Switch, we’ve played a lot of great games and have discovered a lot we wouldn’t have normally played before. I feel like I’ve played through a lot of indie games more than games by big developers. Part of that is thanks to Mike and Jack over at Miketendo64. A big highlight for us this year was that we started doing occasional reviews for them on their blog. It’s been great and we’ve connected with a lot of people.
Connecting and playing with other people was the main selling point of the Switch. While we weren’t the types to take our Switch outside and find others at parks to play with, the Switch did its job when it came to connecting us with the rest of the Miketendo64 team, as well as others like Mr. Panda. It was so simple to have a Mario Kart session with him thanks to the Switch’s simple online capabilities!
We’ve done a lot of planning and thinking for Double Jump as a whole this year. We’ve explored a lot in 2017 in gaming and blogging and it has allowed us to start thinking ahead into the new year with new and exciting features.
We want to connect even more with followers and fellow gamers alike come 2018 amid day jobs and social obligations. Of course, we’re also looking forward to playing plenty of games come the new year! With a new Xbox One and Steam accounts, we have a wider variety of games that we’re eager to share and talk about with everyone!
Of course, we won’t be leaving Nintendo in the dust. Our gaming wishlist is long and stretches on for miles.We’ve reviewed over 50 games this year and, I don’t know about you Kris, but I’m hoping to beat that number in 2018. Sure, I want to take our time and enjoy the games we play, but I want to explore them all.
Nintendo will always be near and dear to us and, with the plethora of indie and third-party games that are coming on the Switch, the console will definitely get a workout. And if the rumors of a Virtual Console are true, then who knows how many games we’ll put on it? Here’s to a wonderful 2018, filled with awesome games and fantastic people!
Now that our four cousins got a Switch for Christmas, I’m sure we’ll be playing a lot of Mario Kart and the like. 2018 will be a great year for gaming and for Double Jump. Happy New Year!
