Is Golf Story worth buying? I'm not really into golf but I did enjoy Mario Golf on Game Boy Advance.

It is an arcadey golf game similar to mario golf, only difference is that you won't get to pick from different characters. Also, this game...as you can probably infer, has a story, so it can also be considered an rpg. I actually bought this game due to how every reviewer said it had magnificent writing, but honestly it isn't as good as they pointed out to be. Don't get me wrong, it has good writing but I believe other games like Disgaea or the Mario & Luigi series(1st one) have way better writing in my opinion. Overall it is a great game which also happens to be an exclusive for the switch. You won't go wrong with it.

Anyone play 80's Overdrive (3DS)?  I've watched a few videos on it and other than the digital steering it seems like an ideal game in the genre.  I already have 3D Out Run... just curious if this is worth it as it's the last day of the sale.

Garbage ass game, and if you already have 3D Outrun, don't waste the funds, as it's not fit to wipe sweat from Outrun's balls. LOL Why it was delayed so long, only to be a turd makes me wonder what some of these developers think in the short term, as well as the long.

About New Super Mario Bros U coming out this week, how long to beat shows about 15 hours for both games included. Is there any replay value from the Wii u games? I am trying to go all digital here but I don't want to spend $60 on something I can get for $45 and then trade in a month later.

Besides the main game, there is a good sized challenge mode that actually gets really difficult. I never did beat the last challenge. I’m assuming that’s in the version too.

Personally, I think there’s a lot of content here. And a platformer can only last so long before it overstays it’s welcome. But if you are really worried about replay value I would say go physical. There’s no backsies with digital.

If you do decide to go digital, pre-purchase it today or tomorrow before 9pm PST so you get the bonus coins. Gering $6 back might help take the sting out of the price a little bit lol

Thank you sr_388 and chrono31. I think I'll go physical on this one or wait for a 30% off digital sale within 9 months (as was the case with DKCTF and others).

I bought Capcom beat’em up bundle and love it. If you decide to get it, get it through amazon. When you redeem the code you’ll get the full $20 worth of gold coins. It’s still $15 on amazon. https://www.amazon.c...e/dp/B07HMP7X71

Thanks for the tip, but I'll use my eshop card over getting an extra 20 coins. That's good to know for future reference though, didn't think about that.

I just wanted to pop in and say Nintendo CS are stars. I bought a couple of prepaid eShop cards from Bestbuy.com back in November 2016 from Best Buy, but because I had extra credit already, never needed to add them to my account. Was going to finally use them to take advantage of one of the New Year's sales today before they expired, only to find out that they weren't working. I contacted support, and they were able to determine the retailer had never activated them, and told me to contact Best Buy support to see if they could sort it out, or failing that, to get a receipt so Nintendo CS could confirm I'd made the purchase.

Turns out Best Buy only keeps records up to 18 months old, so I was completely out of luck there, but when I contacted Nintendo CS again, I asked if I could use my order confirmation emails from Best Buy, and they told me to send them and their team would make a final decision. Less than an hour later, I got the full amount credited directly to my account.

So yeah, good on Ninty, Fuck Best Buy (not for CS not being able to do anything, that's understandable, but for not doing what they were supposed to when I bought the cards).

Nintendo has always been pretty good on the CS side, online and other stuff... not so great.

Nintendo is in another world way beyond Sony with their support. To clarify I have had such an easier, quicker, more pleasant experience with Nintendo compared to Sony. I had a similar issue with some psn $20 cards. The short story is that they were not activated and I was out of luck because I didn't retain the original receipt from months ago for a proof purchase. The purchase history and a picture of the receipt( I sometimes will take a picture of a receipt to do the survey at a later date) wasn't eligible proof lol.

I was very tempted to get Rabbids Gold edition for $26 but I just can't justify having that game forever digitally. A purchase for that amount of money needs to be a game I will always want to have on there like Mario Kart or something. I have the regular edition on cart I bought when it was on sale but haven't opened it yet.  I am hoping the Gold edition physical edition comes down in price over the next year or so and I will purchase it then.

The appeal is that the DLC is $20, which will probably never go on sale. So you get the base game for like $6 if you take that into account. Plus, I like having a non-indie game available digitally on my switch if I'm away from my games. That is why I went for it even though I haven't started it yet with my physical copy.

I sold my physical copy and got the Gold digital (Mario + Rabbids) for 2 reasons really.

1, the DLC... it will never go on sale, so the bundle was a great deal.

2, I bought the physical cart on a whim at a discount and thought i'd play a few hours of it. Happy to say I was 100% wrong.

 

I have played 40+ hours in the game maybe, have not beaten it either.. Did not know how much i was going to enjoy this game until I popped it in and played 2-3 hours in one sitting, without realizing it.

 

 

https://howlongtobea...me.php?id=46464

according to hltb it's anywhere from 21-60 hours depending how you play. (not including DLC, or replaying levels due to a bad tactic etc) i'm more of the completionist with this game, which is rare for me. Normally will play a game until i'm bored with it, regardless of completion percentage. This game is in my "I want it all done" category..

Looks like the gold edition is a UK version? Amazon link shows the PEGI logo on the box, actually every online photo of a physical copy I see of the Gold version shows PEGI on it.

Sorry for asking what I'm sure is a redundant question, but when do digital pre-orders usually unlock? NSMBU Deluxe is the first Switch game I've pre-ordered from the eshop and I'm just wondering when I'll be able to fire it up.

Typically first party Nintendo games are midnight EST. Smash worked for me a few minutes past on release day.

I got the season pass for Mario+Rabbids for $10 on eBay. Unfortunately the sellers raised the price to $15, but I'd keep an eye on the listings over there if you just want the dlc.

Newegg has $60 eShop for $50. Just add the $50 to your cart and then $10 will be added with a $10 discount. Limit 2. Expect to wait a few hours to get the codes.

For comparison this is 16.67% off, which is better than the PayPal deals of 10-15% off.
