I've been sitting on a $50 E-Shop Card since December and decided to use it on both Bayonetta games. I enjoyed the first game when I previously owned it on Xbox 360 but haven't played the second game yet.

I didn't realize it was getting a Physical Release outside of the Limited Run Games Version. Bought it digitally back in December

The LRG version wasn't a Switch release.

I believe so!

Brian Lee O'Malley wants to get the Scott Pilgrim video game re-released, I think it would be a perfect fit for the Switch. Limited Run Games expressed an interest in releasing it...good lord anyone but them.

Those are pretty freaking sweet. If I didn't already have two sets of Joy Cons and two Pro controllers, I would seriously consider getting each one.

Outlast is out on the Switch today and it looks like you can now pre-order Outlast II for the end of March.

Doesnít seem like itís been a year already. Switch has easily become my favorite system. Glad I jumped in on launch.

Will have to jump on this deal if I have the spare funds.

Can anyone comment on this carrying case for the Switch? Looks decent enough.

I can't comment on that particular case, but I bought this one for $23.69 from Amazon and really like it.

That actually looks like a nice one for carrying everything. I bought the one below which is more just for the Switch itself plus some game cards and a few small accessories. Itís priced decently and is good quality. Iíve seen it at like Walmart and Target.

Yeah, I bought one of these to just carry the switch (since the one that came with my Zelda LE is meant to carry a bit more and is thus bigger). I've been tempted to just get a CitySlicker despite the price because I love my 3DS case from them, but it's almost too much like a purse.

My daughter won't give up the Switch. Just the ease of picking up the system to play instead of figuring out how to turn the tv consoles on, even with a harmony remote, is so appealing to her (plus I never plugged the switch dock into my receiver so it automatically turns the tv on when you dock it). I've been trying to get her back on her 3ds, and she's rediscovered animal crossing, but it's tough.

Also I think I'm splurging on Labo for her birthday. They've got me on a hook.

The Gold points discount is really disappointing, which is saying something since my expectations were really low.... I have 184 Gold points which gets me an impressive $1.84 off of a digital purchase.

Wow, that is fucking ridiculous. But at the same time, it's Nintendo, so I can't say I'm surprised.

For me that case doesn't exactly scream portability, unless you are taking everything with you; However if you are taking the Switch and the Switch alone, I'd recommend one of these. They came in a variety of styles; Zelda, Mario Kart, Odyssey, and Splatoon 2.

The points system is basically useless I agree. Might as well not even have it but whatever. At least the eShop offers decent deals a lot of times.

The biggest issue is that the switch is on our main TV. He has his own game area with 360 and One S. When he games on switch, it takes up my space. I hate giving up my 75" TV.
