Best Buy Listing where I bought it

Sorry, I misunderstood. I thought you were paying that much for just the game. I have my daughter the $100 dollar bundle that comes with just the game and the poke ball plus.

I was close to buying a second switch to port my daughter over to, but with this news I might as well wait a year.

Wait a physical copy of Night Trap?...on the switch?

Thanks!!

And yep, Night Trap was released by Limited Run Games on Switch. They have like a set window of time that you can order titles and then they cut it off. Iíve gotten two titles from them and might get their upcoming release of Golf Story.

So, of course my wife bought the new Mario Party game because of who she is but we were annoyed to learn the Pro controllers don't work with it and all we have is the 2 joy cons that came with the system.

Anybody know of any deals on joy cons out there? Maybe in tomorrow's sale papers?

Best Buy has the red ones as a deal of the day for $65 ($15 off). Not a huge discount, but it’s something.

There's a deal currently for Mario Party bundled with the Joy Cons for $108.

Anybody playing Splatoon 2 still? Got a Switch recently and have been playing it for a few months now. Just recently got into Salmon run and that's been really addicting.

I was planning on getting a Switch for my son for Christmas and maybe pickup Smash Bros. as something we could play together. I ordered a couple of these controllers. Are they the best way to play or should I look for something else?

They are passionately favored by people who learned the game on them. But you must know you will have to buy an adaptor to actually connect them to the Switch.

For new players, it may not be a big deal nor the most economical way for you to play.

Did anyone else pick-up Pokemon: Let's Go, Pikachu/Eevee?

I was able to pick up the Pikachu Version at a local Gamestop's 9pm Release Event. I never played Pokemon GO, so its pretty enjoyable so far.

No it's a remake of the original Pokemon Blue/Red but using a more similar to Go catching technique.

I had the same question. So it's not a social game involving actually moving around? Just a full Pokemon RPG with more active catching using Joycons?

Yeah it's just a normal Pokemon rpg with some more ease of use stuff for new players. There's no moving around aspect.

Dammit, now I may have to go and pick it up.

Yeah I had it pre-ordered but cancelled it just because I knew it was going to be a couple months till I got to it. It's getting good reviews.

I'd imagine it's the same difference between the old games like red/blue, silver/gold...etc.
