Do you have a switch account? You may need to merge your nintendo ID with that?

Nope, I'm too poor to own a Switch, and I added a $10 card to the account a few weeks before, so there should be no logical reason that it didn't add to my account other than Nintendo being Nintendo.

Nintendo's customer service is awesome. Give them a call.

Which brings me to my next question.... Where the hell is Shin Megami Tensei V? I assumed they put it on hold to port P5, but I guess that was not the case.

I'd imagine they are still plugging away at SMT-V and they'll wait for E3 or later TGS to show it off.  Similar to many other games that got announced way before they were ready... you just gotta wait.  It's easy to forget that game dev on bigger stuff measures in years.  P5 alone is said to have taken 5 years to develop.  It's only been a year and a half since SMT-V was announced.

Bit longer than that.

What I saw was the official announcement which was October 23rd 2017 when it was finally revealed as SMT V and not just the generic "new title".  Supposedly development had only started in January 2017.  So yeah it's been in the works for just over 2 years... but still a far cry from the 5 it took for Persona 5 to be developed.

 

SMTIV supposedly took three and a half years.

Can’t speak for anyone else, but I’d kinda prefer complete posts made whenever you’re finished, instead of part now and part later. This is assuming it’s not really any difference in how much trouble it’d be for you, of course.

Game runs great in portable mode. I've played it exclusively on the go with no issues.

There's no reliable historical data on any Nintendo first party going on sale at any time.

 

It's on sale in UK game store through EOD for 30% off. Largest discount I've seen thus far. Otherwise, you can maybe find it $5 or $10 off from time to time.

I'm streaming some SteamWorld Quest: Hand of Gilgamech right now (link):

 

Edit: Archive:

 

 

I enjoyed this a lot. It's a good spin on the JRPG formula with a card-based battle system that has some fun strategies to it.

When I tried dark souls on switch it ran well, but felt too weird to me. The button location did not match well with my muscle memory. And the button layout of NS is diff than Xbox but close enough to confuse

I appreciate the look into SteamWorld Quest.  Definitely not my cup-o-tea, so money saved!   Last night I finally popped in my copy of SteamWorld Dig 2 and started playing it.  It's just as fantastic as the first game.  Hopefully they make another Dig game.  I'll buy those pretty much every time... but so far none of the spinoffs have really appealed to me at all.

It's $49.94 at walmart for a physical copy right now.

 

A person in the reddit thread I found this deal in said they used the chat system on BestBuy to get them to price match for the digital version... if that's what you are after.

Just to weigh in, I don't mind a partial post because I know how much of a pain in the behind it is to post deals.  I do the Android game thread posts on a semi-regular basis, and I can tell you that copying/pasting and/or linking all that crap is a huge undertaking.  And the Android thread doesn't have nearly as many sales as the ones for the major game systems do.

 

So, hats off to Frisky for all of his hard work.  No complaints here.

I’m just saying if he’s going to post the 3DS and Wii U deals anyway, and it isn’t more work to post them at the same time (at the time that he was going to post the 3DS/Wii U deals, rather than rushing to get part of it out early), I personally would prefer everything posted together at that later time. For my part, it’s very easy to forget to check back for part of the deals when I’ve already seen some, and I can’t speak for anyone else, but I’m in no particular rush to see weekly deals a few hours (or even a day) earlier.

If it is extra work, though, he shouldn’t worry about it.

Keep in mind that Frisky only posts the 3DS and Wii U deals for me anyway because I'm the only CAG who is too poor to own a Switch.

 

I just use my general dislike of Nintendo as a corporation and its holier-than-thou approach to gaming to hide my shame.  8-[

The Way Remastered is back on sale for $0.99.  I started playing it a couple nights ago and it's a very cool adventure game with platforming elements.  Well worth the $1.

Played a few hours of SteamWorld Quest. I had my first death finally. Some of the game feels a bit grindy, as money is kind of scarce and card crafting/upgrading requires a good amount of farmed resources and money. The battle system is usually pretty good. I like how you build up gears to do strong moves. It makes it so you can't just spam the best moves. The combo system to get a weapon attack (3 of the same character cards played per turn) or making other attacks stronger is a pretty cool concept and you will need some of those powers. It can be a challenging too, but as long as you play with buffs correctly, and try to mitigate damage, you will do alright. The story is extremely standard and nothing special. The sound is pretty good, though I wish the characters had voices, but it's alright. I'm playing it on the hardest difficulty and it can be pretty hard. Overall I'm enjoying it a pretty good amount and will likely breeze through it once I get past some grinding blocks right now. also the graphics are very good IMHO. The walking around reminds me of Plague Road, but this is so much better. I would recommend it to card game junkies and people wanting an RPG where you just cannot spam the same attacks over and over. It is supposedly shorter around 10 hours, but it will take a bit to get there. Overall early impression for me is around a 7.5/10.

Played a few hours of SteamWorld Quest. I had my first death finally. Some of the game feels a bit grindy, as money is kind of scarce and card crafting/upgrading requires a good amount of farmed resources and money. The battle system is usually pretty good. I like how you build up gears to do strong moves. It makes it so you can't just spam the best moves. The combo system to get a weapon attack (3 of the same character cards played per turn) or making other attacks stronger is a pretty cool concept and you will need some of those powers. It can be a challenging too, but as long as you play with buffs correctly, and try to mitigate damage, you will do alright. The story is extremely standard and nothing special. The sound is pretty good, though I wish the characters had voices, but it's alright. I'm playing it on the hardest difficulty and it can be pretty hard. Overall I'm enjoying it a pretty good amount and will likely breeze through it once I get past some grinding blocks right now. also the graphics are very good IMHO. The walking around reminds me of Plague Road, but this is so much better. I would recommend it to card game junkies and people wanting an RPG where you just cannot spam the same attacks over and over. It is supposedly shorter around 10 hours, but it will take a bit to get there. Overall early impression for me is around a 7.5/10.


Thanks for your impressions, I was planning on buying it either way as I’ve loved all their previous games and want to keep supporting them. But this lets me know it will be money well spent.

The mechanics of dark souls is hard to adjust for me...feels like a [EARLY *] pC game
