Unless you're a collector I'd much rather pay $12 than the $40 it will sell for through Limited Run Games.

I prefer physical copies and I do like collecting for Switch. I donít know if Iíll buy it at $40 new but maybe wait for a sale or a used copy. Since itís cheap I might just buy it digitally in the mean time though.

LRG games don't go on sale. You have 30 seconds to buy them and they don't reprint them. Their Switch releases are going to be insanely popular.

More incentive to get the physical release then!

Re: Nintendo Switch: Building a New Generation of Hardware from Scratch

Picked up Darkest Dungeon earlier this week. Aside from having frustratingly small on screen text, I really like it, and from what I've read it sounds like it's an excellent port (never played the pc/console version).

Grabbed Golf Story, too. Not a huge savings, but I'll jump all over any discount on the eShop for something I'm interested in.

Re: Nintendo Switch: Building a New Generation of Hardware from Scratch

Rocket League + DLC is at BB for $15.99 w/ GCU. Even though my son plays it on Xbox, I figured for $15, that's a perfect price for some road trip gaming action for him.

Re: Nintendo Switch: Building a New Generation of Hardware from Scratch

Looks like sometime in March, My Nintendo Gold Points will exchangeable for “...your next eligible digital purchase (including games and DLC) for the Nintendo Switch....”

I’m guessing that means there will only be discounts and nothing free.

Yeah and points are changing, too. Better to wait to register games in March than do it now from what I read.

Re: Nintendo Switch: Building a New Generation of Hardware from Scratch

Bought two copies of Splatoon (one for my lady as a Valantines Day gift) and after two nights of playing online, we are hooked! Ended up grabbing Rocket League too, that Best Buy sale was too good to ignore.

Re: Nintendo Switch: Building a New Generation of Hardware from Scratch

Finally took the plunge, placed an order yesterday for the system. Went out and picked up Mario and Zelda this morning for when it gets here, those should hold me for a while.

Re: Nintendo Switch: Building a New Generation of Hardware from Scratch

I kind of forgot but Bayonetta 1 & 2 comes out tomorrow. I used those bonus 3 x $10 in-store pick up credits from Best Buy on the pre-order. Looking forward to checking it out. Heard good things about the game on the WiiU.

I played the first one when it originally came out and thought it was okay. Nothing all that memorable, apparently. Never played 2 but I'm hearing that it's just great.

I won't get this right away (playing Darkest Dungeon and it's amazing) but I'll pick this up sometime for sure.

One of the games is digital, right?

Urgh, this is one of the games I want physical, not because I collect it but because my kids take the Switch all the time and I don't want them to accidentally start playing this.

Re: Nintendo Switch: Building a New Generation of Hardware from Scratch

Have you tried the parental controls? I have them enabled, and there's no distinction (for playing time, access, or anything else) between the accounts, plus for whatever reason playing time continues sometimes when the system is sleeping. I don't have any mature rated games so I haven't actually tried that feature, though.

Sorry, I was purely mentioning it for the Mature lock.

Game works really well on the Switch at least.

Re: Nintendo Switch: Building a New Generation of Hardware from Scratch

One thing thatís irritating with the Mega Man Legacy Collection 1 + 2 is for the physical release theyíre making only the first collection actually on the game card and the second collection is download only. Itís so stupid because all ten games donít take up a ton of space (I think I read itís a bit over 5GB) and should fit on the game card.

They do that to combat used game sales.

Re: Nintendo Switch: Building a New Generation of Hardware from Scratch

Itís still stupid. I could understand the logic more if it was a brand new game but these are decades old games that are being repackaged for the umpteenth time. Thereís really no excuse.

Re: Nintendo Switch: Building a New Generation of Hardware from Scratch

So Nintendo released the Super Mario Odyssey DLC. Nothing overly impressive in my opinion but itís free. The main thing is Luigiís Balloon World which is just you find Luigi in each Kingdom and you can play a mini game where you search for balloons hidden by others or you can hide one. Thereís also a few new outfits for Mario and thereís a couple new filters for the snapshot feature. Iíd like to see more Kingdoms added or something personally but itís fine for a freebie DLC pack.
