I feel like 2018 was both really long and really short. There’s been a few changes and shiny new features that we’ve done this year for the blog. One of the most exciting developments for Double Jump is that we’ve started streaming on Twitch! It’s been fantastic connecting with others, both from the blog and from the streaming community, just chatting about video games and life while we attempt to be good at games.

2018 was weird for sure. It definitely felt long and short at the same time. I can’t believe we’re already prepping for 2019 though. But yeah, we started streaming on Twitch in August and it’s been a fun couple of months playing new and old games and connecting with friends through there. We’ve done a lot this year and we played through a lot of games, especially on the Nintendo Switch.

The Nintendo Switch has definitely become one of my favorite consoles, both with its hardware and its games. While its online mode is a bit… lacking, we’ve used Discord to make up for Nintendo’s Online chat, connecting with even more people this year such as Justin atย TWOTALL4UFOOL and Jett at InThirdPerson.

2018 was filled with collabs with others between blogging and streaming. Jett hosted a 24-hour live stream for charity which we were apart of. That was definitely a fun and great experience. We hope to be able to do that again in 2019! We’ve also contributed quite a bit to Miketendo64 and Pure Nintendo with game reviews.

Our reviews also branched out a bit with adding some card and board game reviews to go along with video games and movies. After all, we created this blog in order to connect with others with our love of games and, while our main focus is video games, why not go a little further and find other types of games to enjoy?

Rachel Mii Double Jump
Yeah, I’ve enjoyed reviewing board and card games, both old and new. I want to expand our board games collection. We have a lot more planned for 2019 and we’re excited to share our ideas! We’ll updating some old stuff and adding some new stuff.

We believe we beat our score of game reviews from last year, too! Last year we did a little over 50 game reviews, whereas this year we’ve done about 50 on our blog, not to mention several others on Miketendo and, in Rachel’s case, Pure Nintendo. Here’s hoping 2019 is a great year for games!

Rachel Mii Double Jump
One thing we need to do is get into a better routine when it comes to playing! I want to allow myself more time to sit back and play the games. But I’m hoping to review even more games in the next year. I think 2019 is going to be great!

Friday Favorites: 2019 Game Releases

Double Jump Kris MiiHappy Friday everyone!

The end of 2018 is only in a couple of weeks! Are you already thinking of your 2019 video game lists? What kind of games are you looking forward to for the new year?

frifaves2019releases

Untitled Pokemon Nintendo Switch Game

Okay, I know we just got the Let’s Go titles, but I am still looking forward to the next Pokemon Switch game. I’m presuming it’s another core title in the main series and will give us a new region and a new generation of Pokemon to capture. I was a bit indifferent when it came to the Alola region, so I’m crossing my fingers that the untitled Pokemon Switch game will capture my attention much more than Sun/Moon did (along with the awesome mechanics that Let’s Go has brought to the table… Or at least the mechanic of having your Pokemon follow you).

Fire Emblem: Three Houses

Fire Emblem is one of my favorite franchises. That’s honestly enough reason for me to be excited for the new Switch title. I wasn’t the biggest fan of the Echoes title back in 2017, and the Warriors title wasn’t the best when it came to a variety of classes and characters, so here’s hoping Three Houses will be better than both of them!

Anthem

Anthem was actually showcased in the Game Awards last week and I thought it looked interesting. Being able to play both in single-player or multiplayer mode, taking on the part of a exosuited-up hero to explore a contiguous open world. It’ll be a different kind of game than what I’m used to, so I’m looking forward to giving it a try.

Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney Trilogy

I love this series so much. Honestly, we probably don’t need the Ace Attorney trilogy on our Nintendo Switch — not when we have it on our still-working Wii and I have it on my 2DS XL — but… it’s Phoenix Wright. You have to have Phoenix Wright on your Nintendo Switch. I would love a new Ace Attorney game, but I’ll take this to tide me over until we get that.

What 2019 releases, so far, are you looking forward to?
