Dominos doesn't seem to have a two player mode. You have to play it with 4 players, which takes all the strategies out. And it only goes up to 61. It's what I really wanted, since I used to play it on Yahoo Games like 15-20 years ago.

 

Connect 4 is mediocre. Toughest AI is pretty meh.

 

Presidents is fun. Never played it before. Probably the only game in the demo I like. And that's probably just because I've never heard of it before.

 

Between dominos being butchered, and Texas Hold Em being butchered, I don't know if I want it. I already have a Japanese eShop Richi Mahjong, which would be the other main draw for me.

Huh? I missed how they messed up Texas hold em. Why is it so bad? Is it something they can patch? With the complaints this game is getting, I would have to think some updates are coming and hopefully soon.

5 or 10 hands only, limit bets.

It's gimped like dominos, where you have to play 4 player up to 61 points only, which is like ~3 hands based on luck.

Poker should have had limit/no limit with no round limits, dominos should have had 2 player, up to 100 or 200 points, President should have had weighted scoring instead of getting 1st for 9 rounds, you can still get last after round 10.

GameStop is running 2 for $10/ea on select pre-owned Nintendo games under $20, which pairs nicely with my new 2DSXL.

I ordered Mario 3D world, Ocarina, Link between worlds, and Luigi's Mansion 2 for $40+tax shipped.

21 has the same 5/10 hands thing.. 

I get it, it's supposed to be quick/party games but they should allow for single player with no limit.

 

I bought the game (Brazil $26) over a month ago digitally knowing full well the games are meant to be short or fast paced, it's designed to be played in a couch co-op type setting and I'm not going to bash the game because it's not full no limit 21 or Texas Hold em etc. Would I like that mode added to single player? sure.

 

oh.. and RGT85 may disagree with the legally not Connect 4 being easy.  :lol:

I finished Dragon Quest 11 and I must say I really enjoyed the experience. The story was good, a little slow at times, but leveled out at the mid point and really took off. The tactics really made it more enjoyable to let some party members auto play on set play styles and I loved how everyone leveled in the game together even if they weren’t in the immediate party of 4 (Fuck you octopath). I do wish there were more inherent spell weaknesses in enemies like I’m a metal blob, electricity will mess me up, but most abilities felt to affect about the same.

I played the whole time on my switch lite so I highly recommend it mobile.

Waiting for a price drop so I can double dip. Haven't seen it on sale yet.

Not sure where to put this but today at Walmart I bought Octopath Traveler, Fire Emblem Warriors, and Xenoblade Torna for $18 each. I also got Ocarina of Time 3DS and Cave Story for Switch for $5 each, and Metroid Samus Returns for $10. I’m sure this is all YMMV but they had them on a table by electronics in clearance.

Now I don’t have to wait for a digital sale on Octopath and Fire Emblem.

Well, Connect 4 is a solved game. So as long as you know what you're doing, player 1 will always win. It's like tic tac toe; it's easy to only ever have draw games

Considering the disappointing size of the SD card in the 2DS XL, it looks like I won't stop buying physical 3DS games anytime soon. I did pick up a cheap 32gb card though, so I can at least get the digital games that I had before back.

Lazy Galaxy: Rebel Story is 10 cents rn (msrp is $7.99). Sale ends on June 21.

https://www.nintendo...ete his mission.

A side-scrolling shoot-em-up/rogelite with its own art style and metal soundtrack. Gameplay can get a bit repetitive, but it's still fun/decent. Definitely worth it if you have gold coins lying around.

I would be interested in selling and shipping it. Send me an offer. Better than figuring out trade ins during this corona time.

You can use larger micro sd cards if you format them to FAT32. I'm using a 256gb card.

Okay, you just piqued my interest. I know I have friends who had done it with a 64GB with some software to force FAT (forgot which variant) to format it past the 32GB limit. But I don't think I've heard of people using a 256GB. Then again, it was a couple years ago, and prices have gone down. I'm going to have to look into that.

Only had it a week, but so far, so good.

I’ve been running a 128gb card in mine for a few years, and so far (knock on wood) it’s been working fine.

Well, I had a 32gb SD card in my original 3DS, and never filled that up with games, so I think that I will be fine with my 64gb Micro SD card. I just realized that Mario Kart 7 takes up the lion's share of the card that they give you, and it wouldn't let me download anything else, except for the Netflix app.

The tool is GUIFormat. I've had a 64GB card in my O3DS since maybe 2015 and a 128GB card in my N3DS XL since 2017, they both work perfectly. I'd be more concerned about the card itself being a dud and not lasting.

What is the point of My Nintendo platinum coins? Every month I look for things to use platinum coins on and there is nothing worth getting since I already cashed in coins on discounts and other things already months ago. The end of this month I will have 700 platinum coins expiring.

 

Here is a Nintendo online 7 day trial code:

 

 

C0BMC714M8BK9VV9

 

That used up 100 platinum coins at least. I wish I could do multiples of these. I would have had 7 codes to give away instead of just 1. 

 

At least gold coins are useful.

Those 2ds Walmart people are probably the only ones who can benefit from the platinum coins. There's quite a few digital 3ds games with 30% off coupons.

Yeah, it's mainly a Wii U and 3DS thing. They will probably be phased out eventually, unless they let people use them for discounts on Switch games.

I am a 2ds walmart person...could you elaborate or point me in the proper direction for more info? I haven't had a nintendo system since the wii so I have no idea about their point system. I mostly got it to collect carts but I am interested in some NES and SNES titles that are only available digitally.

If I am understanding this correctly, someone with unused expiring points (entexman) cannot redeem a code (30% Dr. Mario Miracle Cure) and give it to me to use on a digital purchase? Appears the codes are locked to accounts?

 

How often and/or when do these redemption offers change? Do they offer %off retro title (NES & SNES) redemption much/ever?

Pretty much, the discounts are applied directly to your account when you redeem.

About half of the discounts available are cycled out around the start of each month.

I think I can cash in 3DS themes indefinitely if anyone wants that kind of thing. Of course the best themes require you use gold, not platinum coins. Again, platinum coins are pretty useless. I am just going to let them expire and not bother earning them anymore.

Wish you could hook me up with that Dr. Mario 30% off but on first glance it seems like I shouldn't have much issue getting enough points on my own to get there. Also looks like once you get it set up and going, those points should roll in fairly easily seeing as how there are not many great redemption options for my interests.

I unfortunately picked up that game 99 vidas for $0.99 last week. I’d rather have the dollar back.
