Are saved games still tied to my switch? So if it dies I would lose everything? I'm getting a little worried about my battery life now since it drains about 15% playing only 30mins of battle chef brigade.

No, they're tied to your account. Also, don't forget there are other factors they weigh into the Switch's power usage. Pop that baby into airplane mode and turn off auto-brightness if it's on.

 

Also worth noting: Some games that seem really simple tend to eat a ton of power. I have some indies that drain at the same rate as Zelda. Not sure if it's optimization or what. I'm often surprised by which games use very little power, and which use a ton. Battle Chef Brigade might just be the latter.

Saves aren't tied to your account. For that to be true you'd have to be able to back them up somewhere (as in cloud saves) which you can't. They are effectively tied to the system. There's currently no way for us to transfer them from one system to another. Nintendo can do so if you send the systems in (assuming the original still works enough for this to be possible) but that's a big ask and depending on what went wrong won't always be possible.

I just researched it more and found this that says you can transfer from one console to another;

But like Bing said, the original console needs to still be working. If it bricks, I'm out of luck which is what I really wanted to know.

You're right, I completely forgot about that update. But as you said, still pretty useless as it is functionally tied to the system still. You can move it to another system but only if both are still working and if that's the case in most cases there's no real need to move it. There will always be exceptions of course like if you and a friend both have a profile on a system or if you use it as a family system and get another but it doesn't solve a dying system.

So today is the last day to get cheap Lego games from best buy. Get them while you can !
I'm still undecided on getting Lego worlds

I heard there could be some glitches, but that might have been patched ?
Also, it's only $15 with gcu

I am Setsuna isn't $60 physical.  $35 used and complete:  https://www.amazon.c...ng/B01N5R9QT6  

 

If that seems best for you, I hope it works out, but buying digital, especially on a Nintendo console, is the opposite of cheap in the long run.  

I'd argue digital is cheaper in the long run as one is never tempted to buy a game they have marginal or no interest in and possibly are not in the financial situation to be buying, just because they're afraid it may be a limited print that will be expensive down the line. But this point really depends on the individual person I guess. This was definitely an issue for me, so I can confidently say I am saving money over-all so far.
 

Using the 3ds as an example. I have bought a few 3ds titles and quite a bit of vc content. It was cheaper and easier to travel with.
I still like the cartridges, but sometimes depending on the game I wouldn't mind getting digital games from Nintendo.

This is actually a major point most people won't understand until they have to travel often. That's when not having to carry all your game cartridges around with you is a huge plus. Not having to fiddle around with tiny easy to lose cards is awesome.. just switch the game on the fly when you want to play something else. Love it.

Physical over digital every time.

If Im traveling, I only carry a handful of games anyway cause i tend to be traveling for a reason.. and gaming isn't the reason, it's just a way to pass a few hours. So many trips I have packed a console and a dozen games, only to play 10 minutes (or less) the entire trip.

Now I pack the Switch, 2-3 games and done. If I need more than those 2-3 games.. the games either suck and can't hold my attention, or I picked the wrong games.

 

Saves tied to console on the Switch still irks me.. but typical of N. How they handle digital content is one of the big reason i will only buy digital on Switch as a last resort (or only option)

*granted* how they handle digital content on Switch is infinitely better than they have in the past.

I really didn’t expect my purchase of digital over physical, because digital was at what I considered a good deal, to cause such a ruckus in a thread dedicated to saving on digital purchases

I enjoy both digital and physical cartridge games. They both have their pros and cons. Interested to see what new sales the eshop and bestbuy will have.

Spoiler free review i found. I personally have not beaten it, not even halfway... damn RL. But what I have played, damn good. and yeah, beautiful. 

(First video I could find for a spoiler free review, since they seem to be rare anymore)

Re-read this entire thread, yes eshop mainly... but also posts of physical deals as well for those that want them. Sometimes the physical has been on sale where the digital has not.. 

 

and if you think the few mentions of physical vs digital here is a "ruckus"... you live a sheltered life. (don't venture into some of the other threads here.. lol)

Thanks that video actually helps. I'm more tempted to check it out. I do like the old final fantasy style game play.

$34.99 stills seems way too high for Lost Sphere. I kinda want it but was underwhelmed by the demo. I guess I’ll wait for <$20.

FWIW, while I enjoyed it at first, I thought it got dull and I never finished it. It feels like a chore to go back to. The battle mechanics are cool-ish, but they wear thin. The part I struggle with most is that it's so monotonous. The tone of the game, as well as the actual tones and colors in the setting - it's ALL snow. It's pretty amazing how empty that starts to feel after a while, which I did not expect. The characters and dialogue also do that "old-school", small budget JRPG thing where there's a lack of development, and the dialogue that's there is relatively meaningless (IMO). I skip through most of it.

 

I say this all as a thorough JRPG fan, turn-based combat fan, and even as a fan of snow settings  :-P One thing I will say is that the story is very solid. I want to know what happens...I just don't want to finish it.

Pretty mediocre.  Nintendo keeps saying "hey, we support digital distribution now!" when they should convince the bigger AA developers to stop remastering games and make outright sequels.
