I am looking for some game suggestions under $30.  If you could give a few game suggestions.  I am thinking about Minecraft Dungeons, or would getting on my PC be better?

 

Zelda: A Link to the Past is my favorite Zelda ever.  10/10 (Second best game ever to me, right behind Super Metroid which I think is perfect.)

Zelda- like recommendations (sorry if you've played these, just going for the cream of the crop imo):

 

Blossom Tales is a Link to the Past clone and does a pretty great job of that. Good balance of homage and self referential humor for Zelda fans, as well.

https://www.nintendo...ng-king-switch/

 

Kamiko is only $5, and is basically a mini Zelda game (with more hack and slash combat)

https://www.nintendo.../kamiko-switch/

 

Cadence of Hyrule is a Zelda game made by an indie studio, very very fun Link of the past inspired rhythm dungeon crawler with the Zelda world:

https://www.nintendo...f-zelda-switch/

 

Something a little different, but still highly recommended is Moonlighter. Zelda like dungeon crawler with some rouge like elements. This one I was iffy on diving into cause it has you manage a shop, and seems weird. But ended up being probably my favorite of this bunch.

https://www.nintendo...lighter-switch/

 

For Super Metroid inspired games, there's no shortage. I'll just give a list of my favorites: Guacamelee 1 + 2 (most Metroid inspired, with Metroid references for fans), Ori and the Blind Forest, Steamworld Dig 1 + 2 (especially 2), and lastly Hollow Knight. Of everything on this list, I'd say if you haven't played Hollow Knight - it's a must have.

All these $20 Labo deals have me wondering if they are continuing to produce more because it's still profitable at that price or are they still sitting on a stockpile somewhere? It's not like all the skus came out at the same time so they must have known what amount of the later ones would sell.

Edit: Which breaks CAG. Of course.

 

Super awesome, thanks for working on this. I believe their api returns start and end datetimes you can abstract through the item model, and it looks like pagination should return 500 results per post in the bbcode format. You could totally even automate the posting with RPA.

It's probably a great time to sell these Labo products to families looking for something to do at home.

$20 isn't bad for card board and a school style project on a weekend afternoon.

 

also, i only put my VR head set together months ago. I need several small children with patience and time to assemble the blaster.

I don't know how to access said API, unfortunately. I'm not great with Wireshark so I can't decipher easily why it shows it on the Switch. Though I tried for maybe 30 minutes.

Has anyone played Damascus Gear: Operation Osaka? It's a mech game that was on sale for $2.xx a month or two ago. I have some gameplay questions, and being an extremely niche game, there's practically no info online.

Couple of sales going on I’d like to draw attention to;

Limited Run Games put their published titles on sale again, so you can get Cosmic Star Heroine, Night Trap, Double Switch and others for $2.99 or less each. Not the cheapest they’ve been, but these prices aren’t far.
People talk trash about the FMV games, but I find these incredibly ambitious and interesting, and these are top-shelf editions, way better treatment than they deserve: Documentaries, archival footage, prototypes and so on.


https://www.dekudeal...mited Run Games


Hatsune Miku: Project DIVA Mega Mix, its first season of DLC and the bundle with both are also on sale for 25% off, lowest prices so far.
Another high recommendation from me, and a great value already at full price, with some 110 songs included in the base game. Will eat your storage alive though, I think it’s already past 17 GB with all the DLC so far.

This morning a new NIS America sale started, with lowest prices so far on their most recent games. Tempted to get Disaster Report at $45, it seems pretty Yakuza-ey, technical issues aside.

If I recall, they were all $1 cheaper last time around with the exception of 64 which wasn't out yet. I'll be grabbing that one this time.

Yeah, both Doom 1 and 2 were $1.49 when they launched.  Doom 3 was $2.99.

It's pretty fun once you get some better weapons and unlock some of the abilities to really make it click, as the starting platforming and weapons aren't very good. One of the few Metroid-likes that I've beaten.

I've always wanted to play Skyrim and despite it being much cheaper on the One/PS4, I'm very tempted at $29.99 to play it on a portable.

Wonder how it runs?

Wondering the same thing. I already own it multiple times similar to most of the gaming world. But I'm still considering it for switch just because of the portability

Zelda: A Link to the Past is my favorite Zelda ever.  10/10 (Second best game ever to me, right behind Super Metroid which I think is perfect.)

I know that this is the Nintendo thread, but I've been playing Minecraft Dungeons on Xbox Game Pass.  So if you are able to play it that way, I would highly recommend it.
