Huh. Yeah, that lack of GCU took me from "buying every Switch game on sale" to "not buying anything" in a hot second. Ah, well.

So, one thing I didn't look up with the N3DS before buying them, you guys keep talking about microSD cards. Are games saved on the system, and not the cart, with the DS? How much do game saves take up, and how much longevity should one expect from the 4-GB one included? As of now, only planning to play Pokémon, so I would imagine I'm totally fine, but I might get a couple of other games over time. Lastly, if you decide to get a bigger microSD, is it a pain to swap stuff over, or even not possible?
Physical games save on the game cards, though sometimes there are updates and "additional data" that will save on the SD card. (If you have a game physically, and you then buy it digitally, you can transfer your save to the SD card--but you need to have the physical and digital versions in the same 3DS at the same time.)
If you want to move to a bigger SD card, the process is pretty simple, but involves plugging your SD card into your computer. There's no onboard process for that within the 3DS, as far as I know. (You can beam your data from one 3DS to another, however).

Saw that the 12GB PS3 slim dropped to $100 today. DPCI.# 207-23-1403
Scored one in King of Prussia, PA. BrickSeek said that they had 13 of them, but none of them were out front, and the folks in the store were only able to find two in the back. So there's at least one still there as of an hour ago, and there could well be like 10 more hiding on some lonely pallet (or not).
Personally, I feel good about grabbing one at this price, rather than playing chicken with a possibly-even-lower price. Thanks, fellow CAGs!
Receipt image here, for the skeptical:

So, I have a 30% off birthday "coupon" from Nintendo. It can only be used on one full priced item. To maximize the savings, I intend to buy the highest priced digital only game that has little to no chance of seeing any (or any significant) sales (and of course one I also want). My short list is:
Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney - Spirit of Justice
Picross 3D Round 2
Rhythm Heaven Megamix
I love the Rhythm Heaven series, and Megamix is a worthy entry.
It's currently the only way to play a bunch of the games from the Japanese original in English, and it's got some of the best ones from the DS and Wii entries (as well as a bunch of new ones), and there's even an absolutely brutal endgame with up-tempo challenges.They're easily the hardest stuff in the entire series, if you're into that kind of thing. Plus there's local co-op, plus a minigame where you feed turnips to a goat using a pachinko machine, plus various other gleeful weirdness.
It's pure joy.

We have some of our past boxes available on our store: store.theindiebox.com
Well, if this month's package is delightful, then maybe I'll journey into the past a bit.
Yeah, I got the Stanley Parable. Pretty good box, and the case is a lot better than the Hand of Fate paper case the month before. Not much of a PC gamer though (I play most everything on PS4 and just subscribe to the box cuz I'm a huge indie fan) so I just really enjoyed the USBs as collectibles, never actually tried to use them to play a game with.
Those do look very neat. I have zero interest in physical copies of games (though the DRM-free aspect is certainly a good thing). The swag and the sometimes-displayable box seem like the bigger draw for me.

Keep in mind the amex points for amazon credit isn't a 1:1 exchange rate.
A $35 dollar item on Amazon would normally cost 50,000 points.
So a person is better off using 50,000 points to get a $50 gift card at a retail store.
Not sure if it's because of my specific card or what, but the exchange is actually a little better for me if I use Shop With Points at Amazon. A straight-up $50 AmEx gift card is 10,000 points, but my 9,269 points are $64.88.
So that, plus this $15, plus the secret $25 off for Prime members, starts to make the Uncharted PS4 Bundle kinda tempting.
