Got a long road trip coming up and looking for a recommendation: Shovel Knight:TT, Hollow Knight, Celeste, or Lego Marvel Superheroes 2?

I'd recommend Shovel Knight (my favorite indie ever), but whatever you do, do not buy Lego Marvel on Switch. I bought it at release and beat it (it's a fantastic game), but it is filled with game breaking bugs just on the Switch and last WB acknowledged it (In June) they said there's no plans to patch the Switch version. The glitches begin really heavily about halfway through the game (freezing and crashing to dashboard), so if you don't think it'll bother you that much then feel free to pick it up, but remember to save often. I lost three hours of progress with it in free roam and that was kind of my final straw for the Switch version.

 

Runs great on Xbox and PS4 though!

This is the first time I've heard of this bug regarding Lego Marvel Super Heroes 2. Which means I'll just quietly nix the plan on getting it then

It's one of those things where if you never plan on finishing the game you likely won't see any problems (if you're any kind of Marvel fan, I strongly suggest you finish doe). I think the problem is connected to the size of the open world and things that go on in it because most crashes occur when you're going back out into the open world after finishing a level or immediately upon loading up the game (after you have finished the game).  Something about the game is just really fundamentally broken on the Switch as opposed to every other system.

Eh? I've beat the main game and have progressed in 100%'ing it and I've never once had a crash. If you liked Lego Marvel 1 you'll enjoy 2. Its a refinement of the formula, and the open world is pretty great. Zipping from New York to Neuvo York to Wakanda to Asgard etc etc. Good time killer, but of the four your asked about would not be my first pick. Perhaps Shovel Knight or Hollow Knight.

Every single Lego game is bugged up the ass. It's a known fact.

Hollow Knight: Gods & Glory

 

We’re leading with a big one: Our dates are locked in. Hollow Knight’s fourth Free Content Pack, Gods & Glory will be arriving for all players on August 23rd!

 

 

We said this’d be the largest pack yet and we weren’t lying! A whole bunch of new bosses. A slew of new music. New NPCs. New Quests. The final chapter for the knight is turning into the celebration we hoped it would be!

 

We’re so eager to get this one out to you all, and we’re so close. Get your PC or Nintendo Switch ready for the end of August. We’re gonna put your Hollow Knight skills to the test!

I haven't played any lego games on Switch but my brother has a few and he said he pretty much can't play Undercover because it crashes constantly. Think he regrets getting it.

I have played a few Lego games on the switch. Maybe I haven't played them enough? So far, just longer than I expected load times.

Can anyone who hasn't bought this yet just pay the paltry $15? Or if you insist on buying the mexican eshop version, just find some way to throw some extra bucks at these dudes for this content. Buy a soundtrack or some merch or something. They deserve it.

 

Anyway, I'm stoked for this

Amazingly they only charge $15 for the whole game and all the DLC.

 

Worth. Every. Penny! (and then some!)

You are somehow incredibly lucky then. By the time I got to 87% I couldn't load up the game and play 5 minutes in the free roam without it crashing. Moved my save to my gf's switch to try it and found the same thing happened. 

 

It could just be a bugged save, but if it is, a lot of the playerbase is having it.

I played it to almost 100%. I had it bug no more than any other recent Lego game.  Lego Dimensions on Wii U was probably the worst for me but still playable.

Haven’t had a Nintendo system since N64 so sorry if this is a dumb question. Do any of the top Switch games ever go on sale in the eShop? Like Mario Kart, Odyssey, Tennis, Donkey Kong?

But you listed all 1st party games so... :lol:

I think Zelda has been the only one that has been on sale?

They will whenever they drop to a "Greatest Hits" lineup.

 

Until then? Nope.

Got in for a $10 eshop code earlier when ebay had that $10 off $10 coupon. Hoping to see Shovel Knight or Celeste on sale tomorrow. Otherwise I'll probably buy Celeste at full price.

Not those specific games, but Breath of the Wild, Splatoon 2, Fire Emblem Warriors, and a few others were on sale around E3.

Thanks for all the feedback. I ended up getting Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze thanks to the Target coupon glitch. Will look to grab Shovel Knight next.

I know I may be in the minority, but I'll take 5% eshop cash back over knick knacks any day.

Seriously. OG club nintendo was only good when they added some of those physical rewards, and those always tended to go fast anyway.

 

I'm much more enjoying constantly having anywhere between $3-$5 worth of credit on my E-Shop account.

Yeah, what I really miss is getting 10% back instead of 5% in the Wii U Deluxe days. The current program works fine for me, even if the Platinum rewards are all kinda throwaway.

Getting free games from Club Nintendo, then getting a $5 code for downloading the game... that promotion was so wonderfully broken.

 

Yeah, I don't even log in to My Nintendo even more. The offerings on the site/non-gold coin stuff is basically nothing. If they start offering Switch stuff (indie games, discounts that are worth more than the coins direct value) THAT will be interesting... but otherwise, I'll just stick to forgetting it exists.

I am in that group as well. I'll take discounts on games over physical stuff any day of the week.

I actually preferred the collectibles. I love my 3DS game case and Mario travel pouch. They put so much care into the design and usability of the old stuff. I am still disappointed I missed out on the cool statues though.

On the eShop? Rarely.

Registered Mario + Rabbid (physical) and got 60 points = $0.60

Pre-ordering Dead Cells = 100 points

Pre-ordering Overcooked! 2 = 120 points

 

All I can say is it's better than nothing, but why the 1 year expiration though 

 

At this rate, I'll have tree fiddy before having to spend it all

Actually reverse those. You'll usually have physical promos based on in-store offers (usually Best Buy or Target have some good promos every so often.)
