And to go along with this,  check your local Costco for a pack of 4 x$25 eshop cards (total of $100) for 79.99 (20% off).  Mine had a sign that the sale is through 6/26.  I forgot to check the limit, but it’s usually 2.

The Somnium Files is an absolute steal for that price. Uchikoshi and company really let me down after Zero Time Dilemma but they won me back over with this.

If you're talking about lurkers, obviously. But I definitely wouldn't say "most" people are just here for deals. This is a community, not a bulletin board.

Sure. I didn't mean to imply it wasn't a community. I don't want to derail the thread beyond Nintendo talk any more so I will just concede whatever argument to you.

 

If you purely want deals... then reddit r/nindendoswitchdeals should be your default first step.  Sort by "new" posts.

 

And/Or bookmark dekudeals for switch eshop pricedrops (I use them for physical price drops)

Yep. I have dekudeals wishlists all set up. By far, dekudeals is the most efficient way to learn about deals in my experience. It is also the easiest way for me to track what Nintendo games I already own. There are the occasional times though when a Nintendo Switch game is not in their database though. 

 

This thread has actually helped me more with hardware deals in my experience. I would have never found the 2DS or NN2DSXL refurbished by Nintendo deals otherwise. The only better way to find hardware deals is to follow Wario64 on twitter with notifications on but I had to stop since there were too many tweets about stuff I didn't care about.

I'll +1 to these recommendations.  I don't love the somnium gameplay but the game has a lot of humor and one of the better unraveling mystery plotlines I've played.  It's the same price on steam currently if anyone else is like me and doesn't like to live with reduced performance on nsw.  Regardless, everyone buy it.

AI: The Somnium Files, unless something has changed, has a demo on the eshop.  Give it a try before throwing cash at it to be sure it something you are interested in.

By the time Wario posts something it's going to be hit HARD.  I got one of those cheap 2ds's by paying attention here and realizing it was about the same time daily that Nintendo was putting more stock out... and then posting for others.

I kind of wish I bought more... especially the Walmart New 2DS XL's for $100.  I ended up giving the one I bought to my youngest son as he really needed a new one and he didn't care about the 3D.

Not paying attention?  I don't even follow the series or serious game news and was aware of it.  :beer:

That looks like something my niece would love, but I can't find any online places that sell it digital so I can get it as a code (& the store would have to price match the eshop too.) Why can't Nintendo just let us gift games? :bomb:

Murder by Numbers is a fun Picross clone with some minor Phoenix Wright elements, mostly in finding "clues" that become puzzles. It's not difficult, but it's still fun for the story.

I already have Shiren on Vita (collector's edition; could fetch me a decent price down the road), but I might get it for Switch. I've heard it has some new additions as well.

I just straight up ignore the platinum points. Not worth my time to pay shipping for that stuff since I am not a collector. I do make a note of when my gold points will start expiring and try to use up all of my points on a single purchase to maximize the value (typically ends up being around October since my first ever Nintendo purchase was in an October month). I can at least feel comfortable with using gold points on first party Nintendo titles since those prices rarely drop by much. I hope Advance Wars comes out by October on a sidenote....

Just a heads up to anyone picking up a physical copy of AI the somnium files: Nirvana Initiative, there is a 6gb update. So if you’re low on storage space, be prepared.

I finally see SNK 40th anniversary was on sale half off so $19.99. That game is great collection and bringing a lot in physical form. I also nabbed Cecconoid (maybe mispelled) a well reviewed 2d twin stick shooter for $1.99 and Rock of Ages 2 for $2.99. This was after an hour of going through sale titles and reading reviews on games these are some of the best that no gamer can go wrong with it seems. I'd be all over the Contra collection, castlevania collection, and konami arcade classics collection at $4.99 each had I not got them on PS4 a while back on sale.

Okay, something weird is going on.

 

I have a LOT of titles installed on my SD card.  I'm starting to think there is some weird limit at some point, and titles start "disappearing" without being uninstalled -- which is a pain, for reasons I'll explain.

 

  •  Collection of SAGA, Collection of Mana, Castlevania Advance Collection, and Giana Sisters Twisted Dreams (?) all "vanished" from my home screen.
  • None of these were visible in my "redownload" list, but ALL showed "purchased" on the game's individual screens.

There was literally no way to install these titles.  Perhaps the files were corrupted, but I couldn't find system option to repair files/installations.

 

Suspicious that there was some sort of issue with the installed files, I removed the SD card and rebooted.  I went into the eShop Redownload list and noticed two things:

  • Castlevania Advance Collection and Giana Sisters were both listed in my Redownloads.  The redownload button added them to my home screen and started a fresh download.  Interestingly, I could immediately play both titles, even though the downloads were nowhere near complete -- once the Redownload was initiated and the link was added back to my home screen, the Switch appeared to be able to use the existing (formerly hidden) installation without a problem.
  • Collection of Mana and Collection of SaGa did not appear in my Redownload list -- however, the eShop title pages for both games had a DOWNLOAD link instead of PURCHASED, and I was able to "reinstall" the titles from there.
    • After reinstalling, I archived both titles -- and now they appear in my Redownload list.

In summary: at least 4 installed titles "vanished" from my Home Screen (and the "uninstall software" settings menu) but could NOT be reinstalled as the Switch seemed to know they were present, albeit inaccessible.  The only solution was to remove the SD card and attempt to redownload the titles directly to system memory.  Also, the two Square titles still do not appear in my Redownload when uninstalled, but they DO have the Redownload option on their title menus in the eShop - after installing then again, the Redownload functionality appears to be fixed.

 

Has anyone else had this issue?

 

(I did switch to a new memory card in December and had to redownload everything -- maybe a few titles had issues when downloading and didn't complete properly?)

Capcom is running a sale on the Wii U eShop if anyone is interested. Not sure what all of the games included are but I can verify Resident Evil 4, Zack and Wiki, and RE Umbrella Chronicles are $5 each, and Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is $8. You have to purchase on the console.

Picked up Zack and Wiki for $5. Total no brainer for me. Loved this game back in the early Nintendo Wii days.

It's on the 3DS too. I was going to grab Apollo Justice but forgot Gold coins only work on Switch eShop purchases...

I considered that, but I don't appear to be having any actual issues with installed titles, or even "recovered" missing titles.  We'll see -- I may need to reformat my card and reinstall stuff.

 

Edit: There appear to be a few internet posts claiming that the Switch's exFat support is problematic, and recommending everyone format their SD cards as FAT32.  Figuring I have nothing to lose, I'm reformatting and copying my album data over...

 

The other weird thing, which wouldn't seem like it would be SD related, is that the GROUP sorting seems... odd.  All my software was sorted into groups.  I just DELETED a bunch of demo titles, and discovered that several normal games had suddenly been removed from their groups.

 

Either there are problems with large numbers of titles appearing on the home screen / groups, or my internal flash memory is going bad...

Could you have a fake card? Meaning its actually a smaller card labeled as a larger one?

I did a fake test when I first got the card -- it's this one from Amazon .  I did a full test in December when I got it, and I just did  windows chkdsk on it -- no errors.

 

I'm puzzled really -- I'm leaning towards SOME glitch in the Switch OS based on the fact that it appears to just be a matter of titles "vanishing" but the data remaining on the card.  The really annoying this is that it would be hard to "check" for missing software easily, as the redownload list doesn't appear to list anything it "detects", even if the software isn't shown in the data management menu.
