Pre-order certificates are funded by publisher, not BB.

Probably true but I can't help but wonder why Nintendo thinks games like Super Mario Odyssey and Super Smash Bros need further preorder incentives when they would sell damn well on their own.  They probably should push for $10 preorder certs for stuff like Sushi Striker and Octopath Traveler.

Yeah and on top of that they gave away those promotional coins with SMO. Very strange how they allocate their budget.

I’d like to know where you got this info. I’m quite skeptical about it.

I have wondered the same, but it probably just comes down to Nintendo allocating massive marketing budgets to those titles.

Not sure if the publishers cover the entire $10 but they definitely contribute. There's a reason why the guaranteed titles that make the "Get $10" list are the ones that spend obscene amounts on marketing (AKA COD, Battlefield, etc).

Will the 20% off for GCU work on Mario + Rabbids?

Mario Tennis is going to be...

*puts subglasses on*

aces.

I wish I could agree. I've been in love with the series since its n64 release. The glaring lack of options, all available in every prior entry, is killing my enjoyment. 2 game, 1 set matches are literally the longest you can play. I've always played 3 game, 2 set matches at the MINIMUM.

 

You also can't select the difficulty individually for each CPU player - there's just one global difficulty option. Individual skill selection had been a staple in the series.

 

And only playing as Mario in the campaign leaves it feeling very flat.

This game could be a 10/10 with some patches. Gameplay is great and characters and stages are all there, just need to have a freakin options menu to adjust settings

Side note, if you happen to still have GCU, you can pre order We Happy Few for $39.99. Sorry if this is old news.
