#14386831 Nintendo eShop Deals and Discussions

Guys, Baltoro is giving away for free the expansion packs of Urban Flow, Moto Rush and SNIPER if you own any of their games.

 

I was going to post about that... I just grabbed all three DLCs.

 

Urban Flow is supposed to be good -- I got it dirt cheap a while back during one of their wacky promos, but haven't played it yet.  Urban Flow is supposedly the only good game they've published...

Hey, I just noticed that a LOT of Forever Entertainment's titles are discounted on my eShop, but that price doesn't show up on Nintendo's website.  This usually means it's a publisher discount for owning other titles, but I can't find any info on it.

 

All of these appear to be running for another 12 days...

  • Cooking Simulator - $1.99 $19.99
  • Tennis Open 2020 - $1.99 $9.99
  • Pack Master - $1.99 $4.99
  • Poly Puzzle $1.99 $4.99
  • Ultimate Ski Jumping 2020 - $1.99 $9.99
  • Roll'd - $0.99 $1.99
  • Masky - $1.99 $4.99
  • Nice Slice - $0.99 $1.99
  • Seeds of Resilience $2.09 $13.99
  • Towaga Among Shadows  $2.24  $14.99
  • Mini Island Challenge Bundle  $2.49  $9.99
  • SpyHack  $2.49  $9.99
  • Bomber Fox  $2.49  $4.99
  • Go All Out!  $2.59  $12.99
  • Frontline Zed  $2.99  $11.99
  • Binarystar Infinity  $2.49  $4.99
  • Hot Shot Burn  $3.74  $14.99
  • ... and a lot more.

Seriously, almost every title appears to be on discount. Does anyone have more info, or any suggestions as to whether any of these are good?

Another wacky discount...

 

Colorful Colore is 10 cents for the next 300+ days.  You need to own another game by Drageus games to trigger the discount, although I don't know which game.

Can anyone recommend any of the games published by Drageus Games that will qualify for the cross-buy discounts?

 

Here is a list of the games that I am talking about.

Event Horizon is halfway decent, and Swordbreaker is a choose-your-own-adventure style interactive book...

Over the past week I stumbled across two more "free when you own other title" games on the Switch.  They might be worth checking on...

 

I'm not sure what titles you need to own to get them for free, nor if the giveaway is still going on, but...

With the little dip in price I felt like noting, Age of Calamity definitely didn't hook me like the original Hyrule Warriors. I do not know what it was, the demo was solid but then I just don't know. I have tried multiple times now to play the full game and I just play a single level basically and am like... okay I am done. *shrug

I will say that I felt like this at first as well... it just felt so limited/locked off when compared to Hyrule Warriors.  However, after changing my focus from "unlock everything and max everything" to "play through the story and see how it feels" -- I have to say that I rather like it.  In fact, I like the actual gameplay more than the first Hyrule Warriors, even if I miss the extra content from from the first game.

 

The game's structure is different, but I do feel like the gameplay itself is more "open" than the first game.  Overall, I now prefer it to the first game -- I'm just hoping there is more stuff coming.

I don’t really know what kind of accessories you’d want to have connected to a Switch dock via USB for anything other than charging, but I get the feeling it’s the way the dock is designed, not the cables.

Wired controllers.  LAN adaptor.  GameCube controller port.  8BitDo USB Adapters.

Urban Flow Extended Edition - $1.69
 
I don't know if this is a discount for owning other games by the publisher or not, but Urban Flow Extended Edition is appearing on my Switch eShop for $1.69 -- the base game is $15, with a $2.00 expansion pack, and this contains both.  It has a rating of 80 on Metacritic, too.
I can't find the bundle on the website, but Dekudeals has it listed for $8.49 right now... the game description page on the eShop doesn't MENTION a deal for owning other titles, but that's probably what's going on.
 
Hey -- it's a (relatively) well-reviewed game by Baltoro! How'd that happen?

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.

https://www.nintendo...ld's currency).

 

 

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...

I got the Toki Retro Collector Switch pack in a local store today for $15.99 - $5.00 pro certificate... about $11 for the mini cabinet seems almost worth it.

Hey folks... a few publishers regularly offer discounts on titles for owners of OTHER games by the same publisher.  These discounts only appear if you browse the eShop page for the game on your Switch, which makes it difficult to find such discounts.

 

Anyway, the following discounts appear to be active at the moment, although I don't know when they'll end -- the info will be on the game's page on your Switch's eShop if you're eligible, though.

 

  • Drageus Games publisher (lots of shovelware)
    • Genetic Disaster- $2.99 instead of $14.99 if you own one of several other Drageus games.
    • Pew Paw -- $0.99 instead of $6.99 if you own of several other Drageus games.
    • Funbox Party -- FREE instead of $0.39 if you own one of several other Drageus games.
  • Ultimate Games publisher (seems like slightly higher quality shovelware)
    • Climbros -- $7.92 instead of $8.41 if you own one of several other Ultimate games. (Okay, it's a tiny discount, but...)
  • 7Levels publisher
    • Destrobots-- $4.99 instead of $9.99 if you own one of several other 7Levels games

 

Useful notes for anyone interested in finding ownership discounts:

  • Discount information (dates, required titles) only appears on the Switch eShop - not the web based one.  If you want to know what titles enable the discount, you need to browse the game description on the Switch.
  • Discounts will automatically display on the Switch eShop if you are eligible.  Browse any list of games and the discounts you are eligible for will be displayed.  While you can purchase these games at the same discount on the web eShop, the actual discount won't be displayed until you click through the PURCHASE GAME link.
  • If you sort a list of games by price, the sorting is done by the standard public price/discount, and does not reflect any special discount you are eligible for.  The easiest way to "browse" for personal discounts is to sort a list of games by price, then scroll down the list looking for any price that appears out of place.  A free title for you that is normally $9.99 for everyone else will appear with the other $9.99 games.
  • If you add a title to your wish list, the web wish list WILL display the current discount for any games you are eligible for.

I wish there were an easy way to quickly check for discounts -- a few of the cheap software companies appear to regularly be marking various games as free to owners of other titles, probably to bump up their sales/download ratings on the eShop.  Drageus, Baltaro, Ultimate, Qubic, and Cool Small Games have all given away titles in the past several months.




#14296497 Amazon - 15% Cash Back on Nintendo eShop Cards for Amazon Card Members - Ends...

Posted by DavidD on 11 June 2020 - 08:04 AM

This seemed like it might be applicable to many folks' interests:

 

Amazon appears to be offering 15% cash back on Nintendo eShop card purchases until July 5th.

 

https://www.amazon.c...=pcb-SQRG7SWJMX

 

 

I posted this in the Nintendo eShop deals thread, but it occurred to me that this might be of interest to most Switch owners.
