I wandered into a local Gamestop today to get a $10 eShop card with my $5 off coupon...

 

The store's walls are so, so empty.

 

If you told me they were planning to clear everything out, I wouldn't be surprised.  It's POSSIBLE it's just low stock due to the past few months, but the employee told me they barely get anything in aside from preorders, and they haven't had controllers or systems for the past few months...

To be fair to BadWaluigi=Luigi, many have pointed the finger at Nintendo in the past for doing this - with the NES Classics, 2DS/3DS, numerous amibos, the Wii, and so on and so forth.  And it's not an unsupported allegation.  Nintendo's official responses to some of these so-called shortages are so laughably bad that it's almost as if their PR spokesperson was adding a not-so-subtle "wink, wink" at the end of each statement.

 

However, those shortages - as artificial as they were -

At the risk of sounding incredibly naive.... what is the supporting evidence making this a "not unsupported allegation" that proves that the aforementioned shortages were "artificial," exactly?  As opposed to, oh, I don't know, the possibility that things sold well enough to make them difficult to restock?

There's a pizza making game for free right now on the Switch eShop if you own some other games. The name slips my mind, and my Switch isn't near me to check, but I'm sure somebody else knows the name.

I wish it were easier to find the free stuff.  The specialized discounts don't easily appear, sadly... targeted discounts aren't used when sorting games.

 

I don't see the discount currently... did it end, or does it have very specific requirements?

It's just after 11 Pacific time, and the $10 off ___ coupon is now missing from my offers....

 

I ALMOST put together an online order to use it, too.

Has anyone here played Damascus Gear Operation Osaka? It's an isometric mech battle arena/dungeon crawler from Arc System Works. Seems to have pretty mixed to decent reviews. MSRP is $19.99, but it's on sale for $2.40 until July 8th.

It's $2.39 on PlayStation Network as well.  They're having a big sale on Arc System Works games there too.

I just stumbled across this deal -- not sure how I missed it.  For $2.40, it seems reasonably interesting...
