I've played Snack World for about maybe 23 hours or so. I find it pretty fun, plays alright portably and is very light. I think it's a more lighthearted game and is decent. It does get challenging for multiple hard enemies and some bosses. I liked it at about the 7/10 level. Nothing groundbreaking but fun and has that Level 5 charm.


Thanks for the input, probably would have been worth it to wait for a sale in the $25 range, but got a $35 card from Amazon with 15% cash back offer going on so seemed like a good enough deal.

Nintendo first party stuff should be good. I recommend Mario Odyssey and Zelda Breath of the Wild. If she's a strategy geek Fire Emblem 3 Houses is good. There are a lot of indie games that are worth playing. I like Slay the Spire myself, but there is good stuff like One Step From Eden. I think if you give an idea of what types of games she likes like a category it would help. Mario and Zelda appeal to a lot of people though. If she likes Animal Crossing but wants a bit of meatier gameplay I recommend Rune Factory 4 Special. It's still one of my favorite farming/adventure games.

Just wanted to say thanks and good call on Rune Factory 4.  She got it in the sale (even though it was only 10% off) and was a bit confused at first, but now is loving it.

Not sure if everyone here has heard the news, but Duke Nukem 3D: Anniversary World Tour is coming to the Switch. It will feature gyro controls, hd rumble, online play for up to 8 players, new music from the same composer, a new episode from the same developers and new lines by Duke himself, Jon St. John.

http://www.nintendo....ld-tour-switch/

It's out in about a week, June 23rd. Pre-order till then and it's 50% off ($4.99). As you can probably tell, I'm hyped!

DQ Builders 2 just seems like a game that should've launched at $40 anyway. Waiting for that sweet $20 mark. Hat in Time is holding its price firm

Really looking forward to the new Pokemon Snap. I think my 4-year old will love it. Incidentally, my son is named after a good friend of mine who passed away 10 years ago. He and I were briefly addicted to the original Pokemon Snap in college so it's going to be one of those weird full circle moments when I play it with my son. I definitely won't cry.

You have a much better chance to get that price on a physical copy. Nintendo co-publishes the game and has a say on when and how much the digital version is discounted, and their say is “not much” in both cases.

Best case scenario for digital would be $30 under exceptional circumstances, like Octopath Traveler recently.

I’m way more excited for this than I probably should be.

I doubt it'll be a full-priced title.
Hyped nonetheless. Trailer looked good and Pokemon spin-offs (that aren't for mobile) are usually pretty good.

Fwiw, the Switch additions are just the gyro controls and the HD Rumble. Otherwise, it's the same as the other versions (though surprisingly cheaper).

Not sure I'd agree with that, but ok. Maybe if it was sandbox only without the story and goals. Maybe.

I don't think I've been this excited for a game announcement since the first Breath of the Wild trailer. I have been dreaming of Pokemon Snap on Switch. Can't wait to see what dumb collector's edition Nintendo tricks me into buying.

I know this is eShop deals but seeing how it's hard to find I figured I'd post here.  Ring Fit Adventure technically in stock at Amazon (although its backordered).  It did let me order and it says they'll be in stock June 19, so best to reserve now if you can.

 

 

Edit:  Looks like they're all gone.

Bomberman - $7

Diablo 3 - $19

Dragon Quest Builders 2 - $29

Dragon Quest XI - $29

Agreed that if you want ring fit and stopped looking, you should absolutely start looking again. Retailers seem to be getting a pretty consistent trickle of them in almost daily.

Mine arrived today from an order on Best Buy that I had to try to submit about 20 times as it was showing in stock/in store only and then out of stock when trying to check out. I would have posted here but by the time I made it through check out it was just showing out of stock.

I don't usually complain about game prices, but the pair of Darius Cozmic Collections are obscenely overpriced.

It's a really great game, if you like the demo then you'll like the full game. Also, it actually takes 20 hours to beat it, plus more if you want to 100% it.

And the Console edition is only 124 MBs in size! Talk about a small amount of content for $60. I guess they are charging what you would have to pay to get the actual games individually on ebay or something?

 

I still want to get this when it is on sale at some point. No way am I spending a premium on a small amount of retro Shmups.  Darius Twin is my favorite of the games in this collection and I already have that on my SNES mini so I am good for now.

Part of it is that they are pricing it compared to the physical Japanese releases, and part of it is that these are (supposedly) great ports done by M2. Individual game ports by M2 in the SEGA AGES series are $8 each. Compare that to the Sega Genesis Collection with dozen of shitty ROMs dumped on a cute front-end UI menu, with each game priced in cents, not dollars. Also of note is that Darius games are rather niche titles, so that sadly is factoring into the price. I think they are also getting physical releases in North America, which usually ends up keeping the digital price up higher than it might otherwise if there weren't a physical release. I'm not trying to argue any of these, just explaining why I am not surprised by the pricing. I will say that I feel M2 and Hamster should be getting paid accordingly for their work on porting old games, as we know full well that a lot of old game ports not done by M2 and Hamster lead to laggy garbage ROM dumps, which are usually priced accordingly, which makes people think M2 and Hamster ports should also cost pennies.

 

If these two Darius collections were $20 or less each, I'd have them bought already, but the prices do give me pause. I have thought many times over the past year+ about importing the physical games from Japan, and then later thinking about buying them off Japanese eShop, but now I'm glad I didn't. I'll probably end up buying these at "full" price off the Mexican eShop, or if I don't just holding out for a future sale. The publisher ININ Games (https://www.dekudeal...her]=ININ Games) is fairly new to Switch, so they've never had a sale on their titles, so no way of knowing if these Darius collections will even ever see a sale.

Very good points you bring up there. I am really only interested in Darius Twin at this point. I am not a huge Darius fan.  If i can get my hands on a physical release I may do that just so I feel like I am getting something tangible for the high price.

So I am contemplating purchasing Pandora's Tower on the Wii U digital shop (it's hard to find a physical copy in the wild that is not way overrpriced).  It's never gone on sale and I don't think it likely ever will.  My Switch eshop account is linked to my Wii U shop account.  I have a bunch of gold coins I would like to use but it does not seem like I can use them on the Wii U digital shop.  If I purchase the game on the Wii U shop will I lose my gold coins that I have earned for a future switch digital purchase?  On the switch eshop when it shows the game listing it says the purchase is eligible for gold coins.  Anyone know how this works?  Thanks in advance for any advice.
