What do you gain from having your NNID linked? I think it lets you use your eshop balance if you buy from a PC but I seem to accumulate gold and silver points just the same.

 

Linked NNID lets you use your eShop balance on 3DS and Wii U. It has nothing to do with being able to make digital Switch game purchases on Nintendo.com. It's because they moved to this new system when the Switch launched, they used the NNID linkage method to unify the old system used on 3DS and Wii U.

You own one of the other games that publisher has released, so they offer a cheaper promotional price.

A more appropriate price imho.

Can these be used as Joy Cons or do they only work on the NES games available with my subscription?

I'm guessing things may be difficult because of Rare, but if anyone knows who I need to sleep with to get DKC2 in the SNES catalog, let me know.

I don't think Rare is a problem there, since the DKC trilogy was released for the Virtual Console and DKC is on the SNES Classic.

 

So you might show up at Nintendo's door with a bottle of wine and hope for the best.

I believe they can be used so long as games are mapped to use the dpad for movement, along with the other obvious button limitations. It might be able to be used for Link's Awakening? Not sure though.

They can't be used on all games but they do for instance work on the SNK Collection as well as Mario Kart 8.

You can redeem a 7 day free trial of Nintendo's online service, using Platinum coins.

I've never tried the online service, and I recently got Pokemon Sword. I'll have to check it out soon.

My platinum points are collecting dust, so if anybody who does not have NSO nor 100 coins wants the trial, let me know and I will send the code.

Monster Boy and the Cursed Kingdom - $19.99 - 50% Off - Ends 12/25

 

Yesss. I'd been hoping to get this and lo and behold it's on sale this morning. Overlooked it when it released, I think because as much as I loved the art style of Wonder Boy, it was a little too old school for me so I was afraid this would be more of the same but really really enjoying Monster Boy so far, the hour or so I've played it.

Great game, though a little too new school for my tastes! It's definitely a fusion of Wonder Boy but with 21st Century "Metroidvania" gameplay, padded out to 20+ hours of playtime to finish, plus way more to 100%.

So I didn't know this, but you can buy cheap Nintendo Switch online memberships on eBay for less than $10. Is this people selling that Twitch promo or something?

It's been a long time since I first claimed the twitch promo but I thought I had to log into my Nintendo Account from my Twitch account to claim it, don't remember receiving a code.

Loving the new Mario Maker 2 update. Both the additional Zelda content and the time trail aspect. Really really awesome free update.

I came in here looking for follow-up to that awkward mile long message someone wrote to "Frisky" yesterday professing their unequivocal adulation. Can't seem to find that post, anyone know where it went?

It was right before these posts responding to it:

Whoever deleted the rant really should have deleted those too.

The mods purged him. Let's not give him anymore attention. Just report and move on.

So I bought one of the $8 eBay auctions for a year of Nintendo online. The auction didn't detail how it works, but I later found out. They're trying to add you to a family account. I ended up getting my money back from the seller. Joined Nintendo Online with my eShop points this morning.

Probably for the better. There is a high probability that was going to end up turning into the Black Mirror fighting game episode.

Came here to say I'm still enjoying the hell out of Monster Boy, definitely worth the sale price.

 

Also, while the post was a little awk, the poster appreciated Frisky like we all do, and it's a little weird to see so many people being so neg and Regina George about it.

Thanks for the head's up on monster boy , completely missed it when it released and didn't play the other titles , enjoying the little bit I have played.

Also, Frisky and Bloomy definitely definitely deserve thanks for what they all do. I know Bloomy isn't on this side , but thank you both

Wow, good to know, I was pondering what to do when I renew my sub in the spring.  I'll just buy some discounted eShop currency and renew that way.  Thanks for the PSA on the cheap eBay prices.
