That's a real philosophical question you asked there...

But from purely comparing different versions of this game across platforms, obviously the mobile version is cheaper, but the Steam version is interesting. It's $12 MSRP, but has a $35 season pass, which appears to just be different theme/skin swaps for the game. I would assume the cost is that high due to making new art and animation for each theme. The Switch version came out later than the Steam version, and is priced at $30. I don't know for certain, but reading descriptions it looks like the Switch version has several of the DLC themes from the Steam version. And then the Switch version's season pass is only $10, and based on that description it sounds like the same DLC themes will come out for both versions' season passes. So taking the content as a whole, the Switch version is cheaper than Steam version.

I think the game is that "expensive" because they put in a bunch of work on it from an art & animation perspective, as well as UI and multiplayer. I haven't bothered reading a review, so no clue if it's actually a good version of the game, but they definitely spent time working on it. Plus I'm sure it costs money to license the IP from Hasbro (unless Hasbro hired these folks to make the game, in which case perhaps Hasbo has a say in pricing the game).

very good info,u must like it lol

I don't give a single damn about Clue (except for the movie, which is a classic). You asked the question and I saw curious, so I spent 5 minutes looking at product pages.

I knew if I complained long enough about Nintendo's 10% discounts, they'd take notice and ramp things up.

Goodbye $53.99 games, hello $0.19 games. :)

Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee is a remake of Yellow with the Red and Blue version differences (Pikachu being Red.) There's a smaller move pool and only the original 151 + 2 Pokemon are available for the game. Mew requires purchasing a Pokeball Plus new (limited compatibility with Sword/Shield outside of being a Pokewalker) The two new Pokemon Meltan/Melmetal require interacting with Pokemon Go. Pokemon Go communication doesn't open up until Fuchsia city and is a one way transfer. Catching is done through waggle controls in tabletop / docked mode or through gyroscope aiming and pressing A  in handheld mode (Switch Lite as well.) The partner Pokemon is between a wild caught Pokemon and it's evolution (except for Pikachu's speed because Ash's Pikachu was faster than Lt. Surge's Raichu in the anime.) It cannot evolve but can learn special moves (with childish names.)  Eevee gets better type coverage.

Amazon has matched at least the Smash Ultimate Fighter Pass, just bought it for $20.

 

Here I was, kicking myself for missing the 10% discount over the weekend, only to be rewarded for a 20% discount instead 2 days later.

 

Procrastination pays off!

Does any one have any opinions on the Octo Expansion?  I actually really liked the Splatoon 2 single player.

I've seen this mentioned on a forum, info from a reviewer apparently. Take with a grain of salt but the times look legit/logical.

 

Previews go live Wednesday morning 8am est.
Reviews go live Thursday evening 7pm est.

Nintendo is hilarious, they announce a new switch lite that is focused for on the go and handheld only. Then they announce a revision to the original switch that has better battery life than their new on the go handheld switch.

Yeah, I don't know if hilarious is the word I would use, but point taken.

Is it a coincidence that the purple/yellow and blue/orange are actually better combinations than the way they're being bundled? Hmm....

The bigger system has more room for a bigger battery.   The smaller system is $100 cheaper and more portable.  It makes for a more balanced decision if the extra $100 is worth it to newbies.

 

As is, I'm just sticking with my switch from the first restock after launch.   The battery life is fine for the limited use i give it as a portable and I have a small travel case that works well enough to make it portable.  The redesigns and updates aren't for me.  When they do a switch pro with much beefier hardware and slightly bigger 1080p screen... I may be interested.

I'm hoping that by pushing back the release of a Switch Pro revision that we'll be more likely to get a legit upgrade down the road. I don't want to see another 3DS to New 3DS jump. I'd like a truly premium option even if that means premium pricing. That way Nintendo could come out and say that they really do have something for everyone with the Switch.

Anyone pre order a game from Mass Genie before? They have Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 for $45, so I’m a bit tempted. I’ve only purchased eshop credit from them.

I also don’t know why they have the PAL version pictured.

Ahh, good catch. The box will annoy me for sticking out so that’s a no go for me then.
