I applaud your effort to push through and finish off a system like the 3DS. It usually takes me ages to do that, but when I'm finally done... I'm done. At this point I'm pretty content to part with the rest of my GBA collection and a good chunk of DS/3DS... but there's a lot of DS/3DS games I'll keep (DQ & Layton games... and some select others) to replay or will wait to play later.

I have the digital Phoenix Wright trilogy on 3DS, and I'm replaying it for the first time since I played it when it first got released on individual cartridge. Just finished Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney today. Fun trip back to the past.

I decided to devote 2022 to finishing the 3DS. Some titles I'm looking forward to this year: Fossil Fighters Frontiers, Dragonball Fusions, Fire Emblem Echoes, -- finally gonna play Kid Icarus. It'll be good. 36 physical titles remaining, and maybe 10 digital.

I would love to play Kingdom Hearts on Switch, but I'm not a fan of Cloud versions. I'm just now working through the remaining 30 or so titles in my DS/3DS library so I can retire the system. I don't like the idea of games I wait six years or more to play no longer being playable. (Online co-op or match-making doesn't interest me, so I don't mind losing that.)

Today, I was able to use my GameStop Pro Rewards member $5 off coupon today to buy a $5 Switch eShop code at the register.  The manager was the only one on duty, and he gave me crap about it, but it went through, so don't let them tell you any different.

 

I immediately bought Cel Damage HD ($1.99) and Sea Salt ($2.99) since they're still on sale, and I have enough coins left over to buy another $1.99 with my remaining account balance.

 

But I'll be damned if I set foot in another GameStop store for the rest of the month, and Reddit has already reported that GameStop corporate is trying to discontinue the $5 coupon for gaming currency purchases starting in February after they backpedaled it for January.  

 

And, yes, I know this isn't the GameStop thread.  ;)

I use my $5 every month for an eShop card with no issues. Been doing it for a year and a half or so.

Having a hard time adding things to cart. It acts like it will, then it doesn't. Any fix? I tried a different browser.

The Happy Home Paradise DLC for Animal Crossing is really fun. I played a bit, and it’s definitely something that I’ll sink some hours into. If it wasn’t part of the online subscription I probably would’ve skipped it.

I played about 4 hours of it over the weekend, and it seems pretty robust. A lot of different things to explore. It's made me want to consider redesigning much of my island. I want to share more details, but there is so much content. Don't want to spoil anything. I've had to be careful going around the internet, because all the content is being spoiled everywhere. It's more fun to start the game up and see what's new.

Skyrim is adding aquariums, which is fabulous.

 

Doubting we'll get it on Switch? Unless the Switch version is Anniversery, which I don't think it is.

It's feeling like Nintendolife in here. If you're not completely nut hugging a first party game your opinion doesn't matter. Smh

If it makes you feel better, I *hated* New Pokemon Snap. After about two hours, the game was a horrid drag. Go through the same courses again and again to see if the Pokemon behave *slightly* differently? Omg. :wall:

I decided to try my luck at Target this morning and was able to walk out with a neon Switch OLED. Couldn't believe it. I love playing my 3DS, and I'm looking forward to finally being able to play the Switch in handheld and *see it*.

I just beat Undertale on the Switch last night. I'm hearing-impaired and did not hear the music, so maybe I missed out on a crucial element. But I really, really didn't get the hype for that game. The characters were amusing sometimes, and I smiled a couple times. I found it mostly a chore. Anyone else?

The other $15 code eventually showed available for me after I checked a million times this afternoon. Got Digimon Cyber Sleuth for $15 yesterday and Spiritfarer for $20 today. Quite happy.

Goodness, I played the crap out of Monster Rancher way back. Looking forward to seeing more information about this game. It certainly shows its age a fair bit.
