Crayola Scoot is $2.99. I've read it's a decent scooter clone of Tony hawk with some splatoonesque elements thrown in. Going to give it a shot for $3.

...I guess I own a crayon game now. What have I become?

A cheap ass gamer. Follow the deals, my friend. Doesn't matter if it looks like shovelware; its 90% off and has a decent metacritic score. Buy it, maybe you'll play it one day(but probably not).

Really cool that your progress in the demo for Dragon Quest XI S  transfers to your main save. After playing a bit, it's a lot of fun.  Think I'll use one of my game vouchers once it releases. So awesome, it's like getting to play the game a month early (demo is the start of the game, roughly 10 hours).

 

Here's the demo link if anyone else wants to try:

With a lot of games these days, I feel like it takes a lot for me to really like it. The main reason being is that I have played a lot of games in my life and these days for something to hold my attention it usually takes something that has a really unique or fresh game play. So I went into the DQ XI demo, thinking the odds of it putting its hooks in me was very small. And yes, although the game doesn't do anything unique, it does almost all of its element very well. It has great music, great story telling, great voice acting, and it is difficult (draconian quests). I also used a voucher on it as of today. I am almost done with the demo and can't wait for the game to be released.

Also on reddit, they are saying that people can get a 30% discount on the Cytus game if you have downloaded one of their other games (Deemo or Voez). I played a bit of Cytus on my phone. I liked it a lot. Although I will probably hold out on a bigger discount to buy the Switch version.

Never even heard of Xonic, but I had some gold coins that I had no use for so I got it. Good reviews on MC and regularly $30 so why not at 89 coins.

Still can't bring myself to spend even that little on Xonic, since I'm not great at rhythm games and that one looks particularly hard.

We reviewed Scoot on Xone and Switch and it was a surprisingly enjoyable game. Far from perfect but the SCOOT boss battles got intense.

Said review (for both platforms) if curious: https://galaxyofgeek...witch-xbox-one/

I'm far from convinced I'll enjoy Xonic but for $0.89 I'll give it a try. There is a free DLC bundle too.

I just bought Xonic+DLC on the PS4 a month or two ago ugg. I had it on the Vita but only played a bit. Challenging for sure.

I remember kicking myself for missing Superbeat Xonic on sale months ago when it was $15 with all the DLC.

I was so bummed out lmao.

The game is really good, from ex-developers of the DJMAX games.

This sale is so ridiculous, I's just dumb.

Don't skip it.

I guess I'm not good at rhythm games because I can't keep up with the Xonic game.

#5354 Relysis

For those that have it, is the Xonic sale a trap?  I see 4 DLC bundle packs, just curious if they have enough value to pass on this for a complete bundle in the future.

Xonic is pretty fun. It's honestly very challenging to me due to the controller layout for the Switch, joycon or pro controller. I imagine using a PS3/PS4 controller would be way easier.

No, there is plenty of content to justify even a more realistic price. I think there are 65ish songs in the base version, with multiple modes and difficulties. It feels like many of the Japanese rhythm games in overall style, though it's by a Korean developer.

Reminder that if you got Superbeat: Xonic that there are three free pieces of DLC for the game: one bundle of pre-order songs and two songs on the bottom list.

Anyone think Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 will be cheaper than $40 (physical) during BF? Trying to decide if I want to just get it now used at GameStop for $42 ish or wait until BF.

Could be. Out of all the Nintendo exclusives I could see that one drop a bit. 

 

On another note. I'm looking for people to play Switch games with co-op. Hit me up if you want a friend code to hook up with. I have pretty much all the major games.

Target’s 20% off digital codes sale is live:

There’s a couple of highlights: $20 Smash Pass, $16 Splatoon 2 Octo Expansion...

Is the Octo Expansion worth it if I don't find Splatoon 2's single-player campaign particularly engaging?  I fully plan to beat it, but I don't know if I could do another 80 levels of that.  Though if the multiplayer aspect is significant, I may still get it.

It is literally just 80 levels of challenges with different levels of difficulty with a razor thin story and some pretty cool boss battles holding it together.

The only thing it adds for multiplayer is some clothes and the Octolings.

How likely is it usually for Amazon to do a price match on an eShop sale? I reported the current price for Monster Hunter in the hopes of getting the extra coins, but is it just hopeless?

I'm assuming a price match would have happened by now. In the past it feels like Amazon matched the big eShop sales on the same day it started.

Thanks! I haven’t been paying attention that long, but that did seem to be the case. Guess I’ll go for it now.

Thoughts on West of Loathing? With the Target discount, it runs about $9, but not sure if it’s worth that much, or if I should just pass altogether.
