Lots of good stuff on sale at OK prices. Will think but some of those sale prices could have been better. Probably getting the Messenger and possibly Stardew Valley.

Can finally pick up Wargroove (been waiting since Advance Wars is in my top 3 of all time), although I just did that deal to get three years of Xbox Game Pass and Wargroove is one of the games in the service. I might just get it for the Switch anyway to have it portable.

The cheap-loving CAG in me is at odds with the physical-loving hoarder in me in this sale.

 

The budget-loving responsible adult in me is trying to silence them both, but we all know he's never had much sway.

What helps me is to ask if I buy this game...

When am I going to make the time to play it?

Am I really going to make the time to play it?

Will I actually play it before the next sale?

How badly do I really want to play it?

Why do I want to play it?

 

Most games, I can kind of talk myself out of... which helps as my backlog this year has only grown by a few smaller digital games (most of which I've played), two retail games (one of which I already finished), and has given me more time to dig into my backlog while i wait for DQ Builders 2 and DQ XI-S.

 

Plus Blackfriday is always a big time for me and games.  If I'm going to go back and get a few things I wanted but knew I wouldn't make the time for very soon, then that's been the best time to just round out my wishlist.   For digital, there's typically always a sale later on... and they tend to get much better with time.

Hollow Knight....Switch or PS4?  Digital or ~4x for physical?

 

Does it even matter if SMM2 is taking over at the end of June?

Wargroove is free on gamepass but feels perfect for switch.

Also 3 dollars for 2k19- how does it play? Might double dip aswell

Will I actually play it before the next sale?

This is usually what helps stay my hand.  Time is limited these days, so I'm often confident that I won't get to it before another sale happens.  And that's probably what will happen this time.  I get all excited from seeing the list of things on sale, then slowly talk myself down from most/all of it because I wouldn't have the time to play it before it goes on sale again (and possibly for cheaper).

 

I blame E3 for gettin my serotonin levels up.

Ok...

 

Forgotton Anne - $9.99 - 50% Off - Ends 6/18

Freedom Planet - $8.99 - 40% Off - Ends 6/18

 

I'm on the edge for Freedom Planet.  I'll hold out.  Forgotton Anne though, I played the demo recently and really loved it.   But will I get to it before the next sale... maybe?  I still need to get back to and finish The Way Remastered which I stopped after finishing the first chapter/segment of the game to get back to DQ Builders.

As far as I can see the only difference between starlink digital and digital deluxe is the deluxe has 2 more pilots and 3-4 more weapons for an additional $10.  Is there any reason outside of wanting a few extra pilots/guns to get the deluxe?

I might be wrong but I think the big draw is the presence of StarFox in the deluxe edition.

What the heck, does Captain Toad never go on sale? Was hoping I wouldn’t have to wait until next holiday season to get it but since Nintendo only has two real sales per year it’s looking more than likely.

EDIT - nm I was able to circumvent it.  Not sure why it was saying I couldn't access the page but I was able to pay for it from the main sale page.

 

Does anyone get the below error when they try to go to the Wolfenstein page?

StarFox is in all switch versions.

I thought base digital didn't include any extra ships, guns, pilots, etc.. which is why there was a deluxe, but looks like your count is right other than missing 1 extra ship in deluxe.  Did they change that recently?  There are also store exclusives not in either.

 

And WTF did they go and add a whole 2nd wave of add-ons in April?!?!? including the rest of the StarFox team.  I thought I had everything, but F this now.  And now digital deluxe is not nearly the complete set.

Highlights for me...

Mana Collection - I want this physical. Glad it'll be out later today, but it's physical or bust.

Not sure if you saw this already, but the physical collection is available for preorder at the SE store, Gamestop, and Walmart. Release date is the 28th of August.

Edit: Best Buy has it up as well.

By far the weirdest thing about today's Direct was that there wasn't some sort of Banjo-Kazooie game announced to tie-in with their inclusion in Smash. I figured we'd see the first two released on Switch, but wouldn't that be something if a whole new game was in development...? And it was made by Retro...?

Never said it was unreasonable to think it's overpriced, but expecting a sale in two weeks is asking for disappointment.

Didn't actually mean the overprice was unreasonable, I meant expecting a sale. Had my dates confused, thought it was released in April. Still kinda underwhelmed by the sale otherwise

I’m just happy because I’ve been waiting for Sega Genesis Classics to go on sale for about three months. I’ve wanted to replay the Phantasy Star and Shining Force games with the portable convenience of the Switch!
