I was just patting myself on the back for scoring a pre-owned copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe last week for $35.99.... lol. Oh well.

Was hesitant to rebuy it after also owning the Wii U version, but being able to play in handheld has been awesome. Runs beautifully.

That $1 off for in store pickup is funny. Picked up Mario Kart 8. Solid price.

Aw, was really hoping Hyrule Warriors Definitive would have been among them but oh well. Still a great deal though.

Wasn't really planning on buying Aces, but it's hard to pass on a two-month-old Nintendo game for $35...

This is so tempting. Worth picking Zelda at this price. Have not played many zelda games in my life. Recommend for a newish player to the series?

This game is more open world than any other, mixes in some RPG elements, not so tradionally linear as others before it either. Could have had more actual bosses/dungeons and less of the trials. Pretty solid game, even with the flaws I think it has.

This Zelda was so good I didn't want it to end. The first temple will be your toughest. But other than that, as long as you don't attack enemies that are way out of your league, the game is moderate in difficulty.

Donkey Kong seems to be discounted as well, not as low as the others but still nice.

This is for all those bitches saying Best Buy is dead. Even without gcu no one is discounting first party Nintendo titles like this. Bitch!

They literally are price matching sales by Walmart and Amazon that started today. Otherwise sure, nobody discounts first party Nintendo.

THANKS OP!!!!!

Aw, was really hoping Hyrule Warriors Definitive would have been among them but oh well. Still a great deal though.

I was SOOOO hoping the same thing. But already had Mario Kart, Odyssey, and Zelda so grabbed Aces.

 

Donkey Kong seems to be discounted as well, not as low as the others but still nice.

I saw that too. It has been on sale on their website off and on for 53.99, so while I was there I had to grab it as cheaper too!

 

 

I think I need professional help...

As someone who has been a lifelong Nintendo fan without ever actually owning a Nintendo console growing up, BotW may be one of my all time favorite games. Brings all of the great characters and lore (yes, Zelda does have a story!) into the modern open-world era. Combat is great, side quests are fun, and the shrine puzzles are fantastic. Let me put it to you this way, I paid $90 for the Special Edition and wish I could go back and get the Limited Edition for $120...

Great prices for those games but I already have all of them.

Would've double dipped on Hyrule Warriors if it was also on sale. Xenoblade 2 would've been nice too.

Is Aces worth this price for a mostly single player experience? If I have people over for multiplayer (like 4 times a year, tops) it will most likely take a backseat to Beerio Kart, Rocket League, or Dropmix followed later in the year by Smash Ultimate and Mario Party Switch...

Thanks op.  Being lazy paid off today, as I almost went to Target to price match Amazon's $45 Aces.  But $36 is even better.

 

GCU makes it too easy to pull the trigger on games I'm on the fence about.

Is Aces even worth it for the multiplayer? I've heard the online is already dying.

Don't know if it's dying. I found it to be annoying to be honest. I haven't really put the work in to get as good as good as I usually get in these games. The reason being is that I felt like the mechanics themselves were really unbalanced. I know a recent patch came out, so it may be better.
