BB finally coming through with that $32 spider man. I said I was done buying games until RE2/KH3, but I guess I have room for one more. Thanks OP.

And I just saw I'm at 1457 for the year. Spider man gets me to 1489. I'll buy a movie or something and get to keep elite status for another year. Good deal.

I want to take advantage of that 3DS deal, but I hardly touch my 3DS anymore and can't think of 2 games I don't already have that I would want. I know I would definitely make one of them Lugi's Mansion , but no idea what I could add as a second game. Not really that interested in Detective Pikachu and I can't think of any other Nintendo first-party releases that I don't already have that I want to have.

Damn, B1G1 on Switch games might have worked out with GCU, but IDAGF about 3DS. Even $10 off certain games with GCU only brings them down to about the $40 pricepoint we've seen ad naseum these past weeks. :cry:

 

FML, just realized it's on digital games to boot so no GCU. Garbage.

My GCU expires on Tuesday. :( Not a terrible final week, I suppose.

Well if my experience (& others too) are any indication, your GC actually expires Monday.

Just picked up Smash (first time playing the series) and not really digging the ergonomics of the Joy-Con grip that comes with the Switch, so I'm looking at the following options:

 

  1. Use OG GameCube controller, must buy an adapter.
  2. Buy new Smash controller, must buy an adapter
  3. Pro wireless controller
  4. Third party?

Can anyone comment on the comfort of the Pro wireless controller?

Ever Oasis for 3ds on clearance for $25.99 is a pretty sweet deal. Better with GCU.

I like it, and I've only played Smash with it. Not as good as a GC controller, but it's a lot more useful overall

Bunch of switch digital games for $50.

Octopath, Kirby, Mario tennis and more.

Is $50 the cheapest Octopath digital?

B1G1 50% off doesn't add GCU to the game with 50% off.  Pretty sure it used to. :(

Nice, glad I waited on Spiderman, $31 after GCU.

I noticed that as well.  That's not the sort of glitch I was looking for tonight.

If you're looking at third party, Hori Battle Pad maybe your best bet. Their controllers are similar in build to the normal Gamecube controllers, but don't need an adapter so you can play them on other Switch games. That and they're slightly cheaper as well. I Personaly don't own any of them just yet, but I have two of their controllers when they made them for the WiiU and they're good replicas of the normal Gamecube controller (minus the back L and R buttons not having a spring in them like the normal controllers), but so far the reviews have been good looking at websites and Amazon reviews.

The past few times, didn't it add GCU in store only, but not online?  But then no $2 instore pickup discount, so almost a wash.

In the past they eventually fixed it, I think, so I may hold off for now.

If they fixed the GCU applying to the 50% off game before, do you recall if it was that day or later in the week?

Yeah, last year, if I remember correctly, when the sale first started GCU did not come off the 2nd game.  In store, however, was different as GCU came off both games.  This was eventually fixed in the online portion of the sale.  I guess we'll see if that holds true again this year.

I never know when to buy 3DS games. I could hold out for $20 on the remaining games I don't have, but they might sell out before that happens. Hmm.

This seems to be working on non-Nintendo games as well. Etrian V and Jake Hunter both worked for the buy one get one half off.

Well I was intending to get 2 copies of Warioware (one for me, one for my nice) but your only can buy one at a time unless you have a business account. I ended up with Warioware and OoT (for my niece) which is okay but not ideal. Oh well Christmas is done for her now.

Hmmm, it let me buy Minecraft x2. Grabbed one for my daughter and nephew, did store pickup for an extra $2 off.

Can anyone confirm that they are receiving the GCU discount on the 2nd 3DS game when purchased at the store?
