As many people do in the summer, I’m going to go on a vacation next month! Of course, as a lifelong gamer, figuring out what I should be playing on the road is an ordeal that must be tackled. In particular, since I don’t bring my computer on my vacations, I will be without access to my precious Steam collection and will need to make do with my handhelds. I figured, while I’m deciding, I might as well write a quick blog post about it, right? Here’s a few games on my shortlist for playing on vacation.
I am Setsuna

I started I am Setsuna a while ago on a different vacation and really enjoyed it, but my Nintendo Switch doesn’t get a lot of use from me when I’m home, so the game has been collecting dust for a while. Being a fan of JRPGs, I can’t wait to get back to to this one, and I want to finish it up before Octopath Traveller has a chance to suck me in.

I bought this game a while ago on my tablet for a rainy day, and still haven’t had the opportunity to start it up. I love abstract indie puzzle games, so it’s mind-boggling that I haven’t gotten around to this one yet. Don’t worry, though, I will be fixing this shortly and all will be right with the universe once again.
Mario + Rabbids Kingdom Battle

Rounding out the games I plan to play while on vacation is the game I’m probably most excited about. I played this game for a while when it first game out, but I didn’t have an opportunity to come back to it because, well, I tend to forget my Switch exists when I have a computer in front of my face all the time. The game is a ton of fun, and I’m hoping I can use the skills learned in this game as a springboard to tackle a series that’s been on my bucket list for a long time, this little series called X-com…
Well, there’s my near-future travel games! If I actually finish all three games, that would be a miracle, because I’d finally be caught up on my mobile games collection. Well, as long as I ignore not having finished Breath of the Wild, but that’s a problem for another day. Let me know what your future travel games are in the comments!
