For those who have it/played it, how does Persona 5 Strikers run on the Switch? I would prefer it on the Switch rather than PS4.

It’s really good! Runs smoothly most of the time, but does make some sacrifices to get there (worst offender I’ve seen is some pop-in for ambient objects partway through the second big area) but nothing deal-breaking. Loading takes a bit more than you’d expect, but overall I’m having a good time some 17 hours in.

It’s up for pre-order already, a bit on the expensive side at $50 (and $70 for the Deluxe bundle). The prices are quite a bit lower in the Mexican shop, however, much like with Persona 5 Strikers.

I will wait and see, though. There were some very concerning issues with the port when it came out in Japan last year.

2K, Capcom and Ubisoft sales up today.
Notably Mario + Rabbids Gold Edition dropped under $14, which is “I’ll quit waiting for the season pass to get cheaper and buy the game again, Fuck it” pricing.

Also notable, an ININ Games release is on sale, which has happened only once or twice before. This time it’s Umihara Kawase BaZooka! (and Ultracore).

From now until May 10th Nintendo is giving 200 gold coins for the purchase of a 12 month Nintendo Online Membership.

Sweet! I... uh... I resubbed last week...

As part of their anniversary campaign, Qubic Games discounts a good chunk of their catalog to $0.17, $1.70 and $5 if you own certain games of theirs. (You almost certainly do, there’s even a free one)

This includes the classic Bit.Trip games for $1.70 each!

Thanks a lot for the effort all these years, Frisky. Your posts have been one of the most useful resources I’ve found, and I know for a fact maintaining lists like that requires a ton of time and effort, you truly deserve that rest.

Also, why does everyone want to see remakes of Wind Waker and Twilight Princess? They literally JUST remade those a few years ago on the Wii U.

There’s the issue right there. It’s not like Wii Us were ever cheap and plentiful nowadays if you missed them, and Nintendo is still digging up any Wii U exclusive that may make some impact anyway, they may as well port these over too.

Fairly big sale went up today, including Among Us, which is on sale despite being the best selling thing in the eShop for like 3 months.

Anyone know if xcom2, Bioshock collection and Digimon have download codes or is it safe to buy them used?


None use codes. XCOM 2 and Bioshock will need to download a bunch of data to complement what’s on the cart though (the Bioshock cart includes the first chunk of all 3 games). Digimon has everything included out of the box.

Question for those familiar with it. Does Mary Skelter 2 require having played the first? I looked and the first isn't on the switch seemingly.

The first one is included actually! At least a slightly updated version of it is.
