Will Japanese/overseas language games show in my local language when I use my local account?

Not so far.  Game languages support is always on the 'disk'

 

 

Depends on the game. Plantera and Kamiko are both English when played with a UK account. Disgaea 5 too.

I just copied the text from the OP in the switch thread as I've been strictly UK shop all the way, if anybody knows better provide some text and I'll stick it in the OP - @shirubagan you suggested so got any wording ?

Do you have access to the Switch eshop?

 

Do you like amazing twin-stick shooters?

 

Do you like cyberpunk?

 

If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then buy NEON CHROME. :quote:

Probably.

No. (Unless you have a Mexican card).

 

Maybe change this to:

Can I use my credit card to buy from the US, Japan (and other international stores)?

Is there a Turkey store? Can you pay with a credit/debit card to buy off the Mexican store?

If you follow the e-shop price comparison link in the OP you can peruse the list of shops and prices

my initial view of NBA Playygrounds is that it plays ok, especially for £8.99 - I may not have felt so forgiving at double that.

 

all the buttons do something so there is a bit of complexity to play with alley oops, blocks, elbows, crossovers etc, and the shot system is initially confusing with a power bar and sweet spot for dunks and 3 pointers which is based on a players stats (can be flipped to something simpler I think).

 

few game modes with online now added in too - which was missing from the previous version on the store - apparently the release version from back last year was taken down and everybody who bought it gets the new enhanced version for free, so looks like the devs trying to support it, they added online and tweaked a lot of gameplay things people didn't like.

 

its a zippy 2v2 basketball game with an in game card collecting system to build your team, but this seems entirely in game from what I can see, there aren't timers or gems to buy (though think there are a couple of big DLC add-ons to buy)

 

I don't think NBA playgrounds is going to be a great game but feels a solid effort, and I was only looking for NBA Jam the other day so does scratch that itch a bit, in less flamboyant style.

 

Quite like the look of that Innerspace game too but £18 not an impulse buy and not read or seen anything about it yet

Tempted to pick this up to play with the kids. 

 

Does it require extensive knowledge of basketball tactics and things or is it pretty much skill based running around trying to score?

no tactics at all, its a 2v2 run around and score thing, the shooting needs a bit of timing with a power bar to get dunks/3pts in - I haven't tried yet but this can be switched off in options I believe.

I did that. Turkey isn't listed. My Turkish store of choice for buying Turkish xbox credit, doesn't seem to stock eshop vouchers, which suggests that there isn't a Turkish eshop. A shame.

Is there any reason you particularly need to buy from the Turkish store rather than the cheapest option available to you?

 

Turkey is usually the cheapest store for purchasing xbox games, and I have a Turkish online retailer who'll sell me credit at face value i.e. without any markups.

If I buy a game from a foreign eshop and then archive it, do I have to then go on to that same country's eshop again to re-download it?

 

And what are the chances of Nintendo suddenly stopping me from playing games from other countries that I've bought, do you reckon? Didn't they do something like that before with another console, once they'd cottoned on?

They literally suggest you can use more than one region on a device.

Each eShop is aware of purchases from the others - I can't download UK games from the US store, for example, as it knows I already own them.

There is quite a lot of shovelware starting to arrive now - saw a crap one button iPhone game which cost a couple of quid turn up yesterday for £17.99 (Tiny Planet).

 

Flipped NBA Playgrounds to the one button shooting mode, losing the power bar, and its much more immediate to play now - I'm quite enjoying it at £8, it scratches the NBA Jam itch I had - its not quite as frantic and cool but the best approximation I've seen in a while.

Oxenfree is only £4 I just noticed. 75% off. 

 

Did the ‘It would be rude not to’ thing and got it. Have it on steam and never played it but this may give me a chance to.

I was going to give it a go but Edge's review put me off.
