He says he's retiring to upgrade to spend more time with his family but I wonder if like that last guy that retired who was over indie game acquisitions (or whatever) if he'll be over at MS in May.

That would be a big mistake for MS. Spencer has done a great job repairing their reputation after the disaster that was Mattrick.

Anyone try Desktop Soccer? It looks oddly fun.

Was Devil's Third ever on sale?

Besides being clearanced to $30 after Nintendo announced the end of the online portion, I don't think so.

Any good shmups out on the Switch? Looking for something besides the typical Mario/Zelda to play.

Bought a couple of copies when it came out and I think one more when it was $30. Thought it might one day put my nonexistent yet daughter through college.

The Gunbird and Strikers 1945 games are pretty good, and cheap.

Tons of good shmups on Switch, but king is Ikaruga.

Gunbird2.  I love how charming that game is and the characters are distinct.  The backgrounds are very well animated and it has tate mode as well.

Highly recommend Steredenn binary stars. Roguelike shmup with multiple ships to unlock and different modes to play, including a daily one try score attack mode. Soundtrack is awesome too.

Steredenn Binary Stars is a fantastic game. I played it on Gamepass on Xbox and put tons of hours into it.
They recently removed it from Gamepass which is disappointing.

I bought it for Switch when it was one sale sometime last year to have it on the go. It is a difficult game but very fun.

I got Gunbird, Gunbird 2 & Ikaruga. Ikaruga is the best out of those 3 (I triple dipped Gamecube, Switch & PS4 ), but it's $5 more than on any other platform. The PS4 version is in 4k with trophies for $10 if you want a cheaper option.  I hear that Zero Gunner 2 game is good too. I might get it soon.

In case anyone was interested Best Buy has the pre-order up for Lapis x Labyrinth XL edition for the switch. Taking advantage of GCU while I still have it. https://www.bestbuy....p?skuId=6323190

Here’s the trailer for anyone curious.

I'm really enjoying Sky Force Reloaded. Probably the 4th time getting the game. For $6 on sale, I think it's worth it. Will check out Ikaruga

I had no idea about this game and would like to thank you for putting it on my radar. Preordered it.

I watched the trailer....and I still have no idea what the hell this game actually is. I am gonna watch reviews for it though and see how it's set up. Especially on physical since I just got burned by Dragon Marked for Death and if I had gone physical...would have cost me $50.

Holy  Fuck Trials Rising is so fun. Too bad it seems to run pretty poorly on Switch. I'll keep playing this weekend for the soundtrack alone

 

edit: yikes

From what I’ve seen on YouTube videos it’s basiclly an arcade loot frenzy. You take a quest, kill enemies as fast as possible, kill the boss and make it back to the surface without your entire party dying. Apparently if you do well enough you fill a meter that triggers fever mode and enemies explode into gems (cause why not?). Party members can be stacked and depending on how they are stacked changes your attacks and you can swap who is where in the stack to make combo attacks.
If you’re on the fence I’d say wait since NIS games tend to drop in price fairly quick. I like the art work and I’m a sucker for special editions that include an art book. Not very CAG of me I know.

My buddy brought over his Switch tonight and picked up Gunman Clive and we played that for a bit taking turns on each level, and wow, that game is really good.  The sound in that game and they clearly took inspiration from A LOT of old NES games and it's such a great game.  I just snagged it for $4 myself.

Yeah, the Gunman Clive games remain two of the best bargains on the 3DS as well.  Great 3D too.

Agreed, I just recommended both titles over at Gamefaqs this past week in a $3 and under good e-shop games thread and couldn't believe they hadn't been mention before I did so. But the 3DS area over there is all but over, so not as much traffic as the NS sadly. And yep, the 3D is pretty killer as well.

Finally Bowser takes control. I can imagine the difficulty of trying to attend meetings with him only to discover that he’s jumped to another castle.

Made a video on the Trials Rising beta, which controls differently than the other versions:

 

 

If you want to see graphical differences, I also made a video on the PS4 version.

Normally Thursday is the bigger change day but honestly games come and go on sale everyday.
On the eshop the game page will have an expiration date for the sale. I’ve seen 1 week 2 week and 3 plus week sales.
