Fangamer and Retronauts announced a new Kickstarter for the Flip Grip, which is $12. It's a grip to make it easier to play arcade games on the Switch with the tablet in Tate mode for those that support it, which they have a list of them on the KS page.

Interesting concept, but it has no electrical connections.

No, it's an original indie game.

I got excited when I saw it said "Sonic Sale" in the updated title as I have been waiting to double dip on Sonic Mania. According to the deal posts however you don't list a single Sonic game... Am I missing something?

I think they made the right call blocking off the USB-C charging port. Any extra heat from charging the battery would not be good. I'm hoping they really have fully tested it for heat management, because that's always been my fear of these grips that I've seen online that people have 3D-printed. I'm willing to trust them enough to toss in $15, as I know that Jeremy Parish is good people, and Fangamer is big enough to also deserve some trust (as opposed to this being a Kickstarter set up by some clown no one has ever heard of).

Doesn't look like Sonic Mania is one of the Sonic games on sale, sorry! Here's what nintendo.com shows, 11 total games with Sonic Forces being the only Switch game on sale.

Tempted to pick up Sonic Racing Transformed on Wii U. Have it on Xbox One via BC but heard the Wii U version is a bit better and might be nice to play it in offscreen mode.

Yea, I don't know how they tested heat either. If they're just using external IR measurements, it's not going to prove much.

 

But on top of that, it could be easy to cover the little bit of air flow in the case.

Or any potential joycon interference (due to not being electrically connected, like when you connect directly to the Switch.

Or being unable to play for longer than ~3 hr stretches at a time.

 

Like I said, interesting concept, but I feel like there will eventually be a version that's more than just plastic. More like an adaptor.

Minecraft- I think this is the new update that allows cross play with Xbox and pc, yes? Will have to try it out.

LOL BINGO?? So much for Wii being the center of entertainment in nursing homes.

 

Very tempted to pick up Owlboy and/or Mantis Burn Racing. Both look cool. Though I never liked the original $25 pricepoint for Owlboy; $17 is closer to an MSRP than a sale price for me :(

 

Mantis Racing reminds me of that Motorstorm RC game on Vita - what a gem! One of my very few platinum trophies too.

They totally should have launched the update alongside a livestream of Phil Spencer and Reggie playing co-op on their respective consoles.

Are any of these 3DS Sonic games worth picking up? : Boom Fire & Ice, Boom Shattered Crystal, Generations, and Lost World. I know at least a couple of those are on consoles, and I heard they're different than those versions, but not sure if they're as good.

I need this thus I have pledged.  I own almost every vertical shooter on the switch as it's such a great fast pick up and play.

Bought Kamiko. $2.99 is a good deal for a game a lot places recommend. Played a little bit and already up to the third area.

The physical release, Sonic Mania Plus is coming out on July 17th. Maybe the digital version will go on sale then?

Based on reviews, Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed (it's like a harder Mario Kart and there's a ton of stuff to do and unlock. I have it for the WiiU) and Sonic Generations are worth playing. I picked up Generations for Xbox 360 (around $9 on ebay) since it's now backwards compatible with the Xbox One, and they even gave everybody the Casino Night preorder DLC for free.

Owlboy is about $13.50 on the MX Eshop if you had or think about changing your region

Edit: 13.30 with todays exchange rate

Edit 2: Sonic Forces is $14.50

OK thanks, I wonder what comes after dragon's trap?
I heard there are multiple games in the series.

I can vouch for Kamiko being a good, cheap pick-up.

Anyone interested in Kamiko should probably do a little research before picking it up. Some of those puzzles look infuriating—and not in an "oh, geez, how does this even work" way, but in an "oh, god, I have to keep restarting because there are a billion enemies in the way that I can't fight or touch without failing" way.

I don't like hard games at all and had no trouble with Kamiko. I don't remember anything being even remotely infuriating or tough.
