Will wait to see if these prices are valid in store. Some great prices on some of these games. Only one that I don't have (other than the ones that don't interest me) is Captain Toad.

Tried to order Wheel of Fortune/Jeopardy for $8.99 around 1:20AM and it suddenly became sold out for shipping in checkout, then every single store in my area was sold out (despite all of them having multiple stock a few minutes before).  Seems fishy as I doubt someone swooped in a bought everything in my area in a matter of minutes.  If I have time I'll hit one of the local stores that showed stock before the supposed sell out.

I didn't pay full price for Mario vs. Rabbids at launch, only for it to be deeply discounted every following week. No siree...

...to be fair, the Switch's launch year was a wild time. You had to make it rain here and there.

It was probably a price error, that's how best buy shuts them down. Tho it might be still be valid instore.

Ended up picking up the BB exclusive Child of Light/Valiant Hearts 2 pack for $23.99 after GCU as that's the lowest its ever been.

 

Highly tempted by Bayonetta and Hyrule Warriors Definitive Edition at $35.99 each after GCU, but will probably pass.

Picked up the Hasbro one since early Xmas shopping for nephew.

 

One down, many to go.

The last developer's update note (roughly 2wks ago) said they are on track for their "internal date" on the Switch patch, but no official ETA release date.  Optimistically, I think a Halloween announcement is not out of the realm of possibility ... which is kinda depressing, though appropriate.

No. It fucking sucks. I bought it in the GameStop Labor Day sale, completely unaware of how terrible the Switch port was. There’s absolutely no reason for it to be as terrible as it is. Resolution was terrible—especially for a non-taxing 2.5D game. Not to mention the poor frame rate and crashes. In a game you can only manually save, the amount this game crashes is unforgivable. I lost so much progress. I immediately traded it back in.

If you have Xbox Game Pass it is now on there. I’ll eventually get to it without paying any more for that game.

Ending up grabbing Civ 6 and Mario & Rabbids with free next day shipping. Even had a $5 BB rewards coupon to throw in there, so only $33 for one day shipping? I think I will, thank you.

Nope.

 

Again, if you buy a cross platform game on the switch then you're doing it wrong.

Unless if the only other option is a heavily censored PS4 version.

I don't think you know what "heavily" means.

Generally agree.  Exceptions for me go to games like Celeste and Hollow Knight, which I consider to be best on NS.

 

Cheapest way to play a decent version of Bloodstained (xb1/pc) is now with game pass (which can be dirt cheap).

Unless you want to play it on the go, which I would imagine is the main reason a Switch owner would want to get a cross-platform game on Switch.

Nothing in this sale really interests me... I already bought Civ VI for $20 when it previously went on sale at Best Buy.
I'm really hoping I'll see Octopath and FF remasters for $25 this Black Friday... I've never seen Octopath below $40.

If you buy a cross platform game that performs just as well on the Switch (many indie games) then you're doing it wrong to not buy it for the Switch.

How is Civ VI on the Switch, under $20 price is tempting me.

You know, if that bloodstained still came with the metal case, i would have gotten it and used it for my ps4 version, and traded in the game elsewhere, but it seems that ship has sailed

Picked up Civ VI again since I had a $5 reward cert.

The only reason I got and kept Bloodstained at launch was for the steel case. Haven't even played it nor opened yet because of the lack of patch

Ya know, shopping Best Buy's website is a thousand times better than Walmart and Amazon as there is no third party seller crap to deal with.

Picked up

Minecraft for the switch (she’s been tying up my PC)
Mario Rabbids (finally)


Debating on going back for Xenoblade Chronicles 2, but still waiting for a $34 pre gcu price.

I got bored with Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and traded mine in awhile ago. I did pick up the Torna expansion for $20 awhile ago though and would like to get XC2 again, but also waiting for it to be closer to $30 before I get it again.

I can't take my PS4 on the go so I'm not sure that I am. These are the type of games I prefer to play handheld so that's how I intend to play it.

A lot of these 'terrible' Switch ports, the differences are pretty minor as well. Although some have been so bad that I do wait until I hear how a multiplat is on Switch before I get it.
