If this deal is only in-store, can you actually get them to honor it at the store?

Lies, they always do an autumn sale as well. It just started


Steam’s autumn and spring sales are just slightly larger than usual weeklies. The winter and summer sales are the ones they hype up, though they kinda suck as well these days.

Slay the Spire is $10. New low. $10 is a steal

I already have StS on PS4, PC, and Android. Why am I considering buying it a fourth time?

Similar situation here (pc/xb1 physical/nsw digital), but i bought it on the last sale for $12.50. Not even mad as it supported the game. Also looks great on oled. Made it to ascension 20 with silent recently.

Piffle: A Cat Puzzle Adventure is finally on sale again. Shameless plug because I adored this game so much! If you're a fan of brick breaker-like puzzle games this one is fantastic. The eshop page has a video of the gameplay. It's a port of a phone game, but playing it on Switch eliminates the microtransactions and gives you 250 stages. But I strongly recommend the bundle (only 61 cents more than the base game) which will bring you to 375 stages.

So does it make sense to buy Torna instead of the season pass since it’s now $2 cheaper, includes all of the contents of the season pass and so you can play Torna even without XC2? Or do you have to go through XC2 to play the digital copy of Torna?

EDIT: found the answer - you get the rest of the season pass, plus Torna is a standalone digital copy. Seems like this is thee way to go if one only has the main game.

I own both physical but yeah i think torna launches standalone either way. So whatever is cheapest would be best for essentially the same thing.

Also, isn’t that the older, “not as good” Mario party game? I’m wanting the new one for the family.

For $25 it's pretty good.   I traded in mine during the gamestop madness anticipating the new Mario party Superstars.   Superstars is fun but has 0 motion control games.     For $25 i'm gonna getSuper Mario Party back.

It does look interesting. I was also interested in Strikey Sisters, but like I mentioned earlier I found it very difficult.

I was looking at Dragon Audit as well; anybody played it?

Yeah, SMP isn't that much worse than Superstars.
Super Mario Party was just shit on at launch because you could only play with Joycons, there was a lack of boards and there was almost no online functionality. They've since patched in online support for the whole package (though it took forever) and Superstars also suffers from a low board count (though the boards are better imo), so being free of Joycons is really its major advantage.

Any recommendations in the sale? There's so many discounted games it's a bit overwhelming!

No they're not lol. Typical weekly sales have a few hundred, maybe 1k-2k games on sale. This one has over 53k and even has a badge thing like the summer and winter sales do. It's not as big as the big two but it is substantial for sure, far bigger than regular weekly sales

I personally would wait and see. But I was using a 400gb card before that I had filled up so 512gb wouldn't have been much of an upgrade for me. The idea of not having to worry about storage was worth it. If I ever fill up the 1tb then I have a problem haha.

Thanks again for advising to hold off, I was able to get the 1TB on sale. Here's the link if anybody is looking for one: https://www.amazon.c...ding=UTF8&psc=1

Yep, that’s essentially the same one I put in my Switch Lite. Works great, no issues so far.

Is 1-2-Switch worth it at $30 digital (from GameStop using credit, plus I'd get full gold coins)?

I would like to have more Wii style multiplayer games and this could be up my alley, but the reviews are brutal and maybe less applicable because they are from people who paid full price..?

Thanks

You're probably better off with games maybe like FUN! FUN! Animal Park, Sports Party, Carnival Games, Mario and Sonic Olympics, Party Arcade, Instant Sports and Instant Sports Summer Games, Go Vacation, Super Mario Party both games, and Jackbox stuff. Lots of those look like shovelware and probably are, but mini game collections are not too in anymore. Mainly heard 1-2-Switch is just bullocks and is very gimmicky and easily forgettable.

Thank you for the list. I just watched an IGN video and ...yeah, doesn't seem great. I'll work my way through your list though

It’s one of the few Nintendo games I don’t have. I read a bunch of reviews and it seems terrible.

I got it at launch and after about an hour I put it back in the box and traded in at gamestop the next day. One of the few Nintendo games I really disliked.

123 Switch should have been a pack in game. It's a game I think is worth $5 from what I've played of it.

Yooo tell me why I did the exact same thing lol. My girlfriend at the time was like "you're gonna trade this in aren't you" after 30 minutes of us playing and I was like YEP lol

Why is there an order minimum of $35 and a $6 charge otherwise for a digital code!?

Edit: screw it. I added some boxes of cereal so I could check out.
