Tempted by a couple of things, but I am still elbow deep in Diablo an Pokemon, plus I know the second I splash out on something in the sale, Wargroove will make an appearance.

I know. Looking at possibly getting Xenoblade and Hyrule warriors but when will I play them? Theres smash coming next month and NSMBwiiuDX (catchy name!) in Jan and Pokemon's just come out so were fully into that at the mo. Im hoping the switch really starts picking up the pace in 2019 with the new releases after a relatively low key 2018, for first party stuff anyway. 

 

Anyway, should I buy either of these two whilst they are on offer? Remember, ladies and jelly spoons, I do have a six year old son who also plays these games with me so game time and choice is limited. Help me out.

Hyrule Warriors is more accessible, immediate, pick up and play and is a kind of Zelda orgy. It's also got years worth of game.

 

XC2 has great music, not gonna be any good for a kid, kind of fiddly but oddly satisfying combat, it's the host city of the 2017 Cleavage Expo.

Messenger, Shovel Knight: SoT and Hyper Light Drifter for me. I'd have got Celeste too if it was in the EU sale.

 

Is there an easier way to get games of the American eshops apart from buying US credit? I'm always left with useless amounts that I can't buy anything with. Can you get a virtual American card or something to use PayPal? I've read about people doing something like that to get games from the US PSN store.

I played around 100 hours of HYRULE WARRIORS with my daughter when she was 6/7. It’s amazing.

Anyone picked up the SNK 40th collection yet? Tempted now I e seen it has search and rescue coming as free dlc. 

 

Haven't played that many of the games yet but the overall package is really good. Not entirely sure it's worth the eShop price but cartridge was 27

 

Clearly a lot of work gone into it which is surprising

How is the BOTW expansion? I remember hearing middling reviews, but am still tempted to go back again.

 

First part bang average, second really good addition, some of the best shrines and more explicit story/character/quest stuff. Great final final boss too.

Sale is pretty shit, eh? Maybe there'll be a better one over the festive period? I was excited to finally play Celeste, but nope.

 

I understand there being regional discrepancies when a game is published by a different publisher elsewhere is the world, but what is the rationale behind, say, Capcom's decision to discount Okami on the US eshop but not on the EU eshop? I don't understand it at all. Do they really have different teams of employees making decisions on this kind of thing for different parts of the world? I guess they must. Presumably they figure the vast majority of people won't realise there are different deals in different regions.

I loved Breath of the Wild but found the expansion extremely underwhelming. I vaguely remember wishing I'd spent the money on something else. You could choose one of hundreds of games for the same price that offer content far superior to the BOTW expansion.

I took, and shared, the list that Nintendo provided. If you can see additional ones (that are new), why don't you highlight them instead of just pointing out that I haven't?

I already regret buying those Pinball FX3 tables. They’re all horribly addictive and Perfect For SwitchTM. I dread to think how much time that could have gone to Warframe will now be stolen by the Family Guy, Doom and Back to the Future tables.

For a retro collection it's more decent than Capcom's efforts if only for the sheer amount of games (13 and 10+ coming) and little additions not normally found in this sort of thing. Such as console versions as well as arcade, and recordings of people doing the entire arcade games with ease.

Picked up Enter the Gungeon after waiting months for it to drop in price. Can't wait to get stuck in.

 

I can heartily recommend The Way if you're into your Flashback style games. It looks like an Amiga game and features some beautiful music. The puzzles are a bit obscure in places so you may find you have to reference a walk through once or twice as you'll have no idea what you're meant to be doing.

 

Check it out!

I'm actually thinking about selling my copy if a cart version is of interest.

 

Thanks for the offer, but I'm after the digital version! (It stops the missus moaning when she grabs the switch out of the dock, gets comfy on the sofa, and discovers that it's not pokemon in the switch. The digital version of leaving the toilet seat up.)

If it helps Wargroove doesn't have a release date yet just a vague Q1 2019.

 

Get buying ;)
