I'm hoping they include Primal Light in this years giveaway but they just releases it in November so I doubt it.
Will you Snail and Flippin Kaktus would be cool too.

 

I was playing Golden Force recently and its a fun game. Got it from last years' giveaway.

 

The first three games they revealed I already own from last years' giveaway.

There is also a limited time Tera battle starting today through the weekend where you can catch a charizard that is a fire/ dragon type. Only catch is you have to complete some post game tasks to unlock the black crystal Tera battles to even be able to attempt the battle. Only way for those like myself who have not finished the game yet is to join a multiplayer co-op or a link code to join the fight. If any generous CAGs who have finished the game could invite me, I’d appreciate it.

Publisher COSEN has most of their games 80% off, mainly visual novels. I may get The Fox Awaits Me.

Forward to the Sky, on 80% discount, is still more expensive than the Steam version at full price.  Probably recommend not getting that one...

There is added content from the Steam version(not 6x the price worth lol), but still this is the most ridiculous 'Switch tax' release I know of.

Balloon fight vs and Donkey Kong, both arcade archive games are so good I can't put them down. Moving up in the leaderboards too. The old games never get old. Several on sale and already had Super Mario Bros vs it's a must even at full price but it's one of the ones on sale as well.

Bought the Nintendo arcade games, Sky Skipper and super Mario Bros vs. at full price in a heartbeat when first available. Debating the rest of vs. lineup while they are on sale. Any of them that are must haves?

I want Sonic Origins, but it's kind of a hard sell after playing the games so many times on so many different systems (and that's just including the official releases >_>). And like half the music from my favorite game isn't even in the collection..

I played about an hour of Penny Punching Princess. This game was not for me at all. First of all it's a kind of Cladun like action game with a silly story starring a princess and her calculator. This is used to bribe enemies and other things to get help on the battlefield. The graphics are pretty nice being simple 2D sprites and animations. There is some slowdown in handheld mode, which is kind of annoying. The main gimmick other than a pretty basic and repetitive fighting system of strong/weak/dodge and a few other techniques is you being able to pull out a calculator and bribe enemies to join your side. They end up joining as a skill button doing some stuff like attacking or a heart guy who heals you. Frankly it controlled OK, although the buttons for the calculator interface were messy and a bit hard to work with in a heated battle. The music is alright as well as the sound effects. Everything makes for a possibly decent package, but it just didn't feel very fun and was already heading into the super repetitive territory. It may be fun for some to read the silly story and speed run the game or whatever, but I was losing interest as the hour ended. Just to be fair I was never a major fan of the Cladun titles either. This is a pick up and play type game where you do some repetitive stuff for a level or two. 6/10

I've asked elsewhere but received no response. Quick question: is Pocky and Rocky worth $21, or should I wait for a future sale? I haven't been able to pull the trigger on a purchase.

Will likely go to 50% off in the future.

I bought Poison Control recently when it was cheap. It's about what I expected, generic anime girl shooter. You clean up/purge a hell that each girl created and earn different guns and shit from collecting items in each level. For what I paid ($5?) it's not bad. It doesn't last too long and I finished it which is more than I can say for some other games. The story is also ok, but nothing special. Keep in mind there are some framerate issues in later levels and it froze for a few seconds for me at times, so the switch version does have some minor technical issues but the levels are short enough that it'd benefit from a handheld experience

Thanks! Seems I puttered around so much that I forgot to buy the blasted thing anyway. You're right; the price will drop in time. Probably sooner than I realize.

Website says I downloaded it already, so I guess this a repeat from a prior giveaway.

Nope. Maybe from the year before though. I got all of the games from last year and I do not have any of these yet.

 

Unless they did this again in the summer or something when I got free games? I don't remember.

They've done this same type of giveaway several times. Not sure how far it goes back.

This includes me.  Last year I had a death in the family in late november and december was a blur (wasn't even remotely thinking about videogames).   I ended up just giving my kids cash for christmas I was so out of it.

 

I didn't have Exorder from the previous year christmas event (which I did participate in).

Keep in mind most of these games are typical Switch shovelware with the occasional decent title, so don't feel like you're missing much if you forget a day.
