Don't know if this has been said multiple times in this thread, but if you want to always find ways to save money on your games, there's one good general place all wrapped up in one neat package:

The downsides are that you don't get to take advantage of GCU all the time and it may not always work depending on what region you live in, but it's very useful to take a look at any discount you may find that can potentially beat out other options you normally rely on.

@YummyHappyPills
You can forever stay ticked off things aren't exactly how you want them...

Or you can move on and just accept it. I'm done caring about physical releases. There is nothing I can do in my power to change anything anyways, so I'll buy what comes to retail as a retail purchase and whatever doesn't I will buy as a digital purchase. No sense getting upset over something I have no control over.

Besides, at the end of the day I almost appreciate it when I game doesn't get a physical release now. Because then I don't have to buy the game twice. Buy once digitally and enjoy the benefits of having the game everywhere I go.

In fact, I've been thinking about selling my physical game collection. Would have less compulsion to buy so many games, and could instead just focus on buying the ones I really want to play... digitally.

I do if I want the game for my physical collection and digitally for convenience. Which I do, for all major games I really like.

I kinda wish more games (on all platforms) offered a way to convert a physical purchase into a digital one. Or that you could get a digital copy with a physical purchase (I know some PC games have a disc, but the code is all you really need to download the game). I have a few XB1 games I'd like to have digitally. For now, I just wait until they go on sale for dirt cheap.

Switch games... probably not going to bother, even when I get an SD card. Nintendo 1st party rarely drops in price, and rarely for as low as other platforms. So, might as well stay physical when I can.

I stopped caring about certain games being digital only after Ace Attorney.

Isn't Okami HD a $20 release? Looking forward to that. Never actually played Okami before so it's a day 1 purchase for me

@IceClimbers $20 on the other systems. Says nothing for us.

Resident Evil Revelations 1 and 2 were $20 each.

Okami HD will, in all likelihood, be $20 also.

Gonna laugh if Okami turns out to be $30. I do expect $20 though.

@YummyHappyPills Can't recall a digital only title getting a Switch tax, or at least here in the US.

Honestly I don't care. That game is worth $40, at the minimum, imo. Anything less and I consider it a deal.

So... it's officially April. And the 1 month countdown to reliving a whole new addiction with Donkey Kong Country. Debating on capture card for making new time trial runs. I was among the best in the world with my time trial runs back in the day... and lost all of them when they dumped the in-game YouTube uploads for anything that wasn't still top 10 several years after release... which, my runs were all bumped down after years of not playing, lost all my videos of my runs.

Not gonna let that happen again.

Been playing a lot of Oxenfree lately and it's a great game. I bought it simply because I have heard some people give it some good press and hadn't done any research (didn't even realise it was a horror game to be honest lols) so went in pretty blind. If anyone is looking for a good mystery game with a few frights, some good and at times funny writing and an awesome soundtrack I would highly recommend it.

Also need to finish up Mario+Rabbids and Doom... Also only about 20% through Xenoblade Chronicles 2... Oh and SteamWorld Dig... Axiom Verge as well as starting out in Splatoon 2... And so much to still do in Zelda You know I said I would never be one of those people who talks about backlogs but I will have to admit that my Switch backlog is getting bigger and bigger!! Just to many great games out there to squeeze into evening play time.

@IceClimbers Celeste is £15.99 on PS4 and £17.99 on Switch.

Fe is the same. As is Overcooked. Outlast 2 is £2 dearer.

Human Fall Flat - 11.99 vs 14.99

Pac Man Championship Edition 2 is 9.99 on PS4. 2 PLUS is 16.99 on Switch.

Super Meat Boy is actually £1 cheaper on Switch. I Am Setsuna is cheaper too.

So it works both ways, but here at least there is a notable tax.

And of course if we were to translate these from £s to $ we pay more anyway regardless.

Hi there,

New to the forum, but not new to nintendo. Got the Switch last week with Zelda and since then my PS4 has been only used to chat with my friends xD

Now... the more interesting part is that, i was and still am an achievement and trophy "wh***" because it gives me a sense of progression/completion of a game, and for some reason, despite not having this, i am enjoying spending my spare time playing on the Switch rather than my PS4.

Has nintendo ever considered implementing a system like that ? and chat ? I know that there is a app for that for the smartphone but not into that.

Cheers

@EgillPT Hi, welcome to the forum! Currently there's no confirmation of any plans for achievements or voice chat (outside of the app). However Nintendo is launching a paid online service in September this year, which will be required to play online games and will also include some other benefits including a selection of old Nintendo games with online play added. Presumably there will also be other benefits to this service that haven't been announced yet, so there's a chance it could include achievements and voice chat, although I think voice chat is unlikely because a) the Switch doesn't have a microphone so you'd need a headset with a microphone, and you could only use that in handheld mode, and b) they probably wouldn't have made an app for voice chat if there were plans to integrate it into the system.

Currently Playing: The World Ends With You (Switch), Hollow Knight (Switch), Ace Attorney: Dual Destinies (3DS), Earthbound (SNES Classic)

@Dogorilla Hi there! Yes, i read about the Online Service and will give it a try for a year and see how it goes. I bougth the switch only because of Zelda, huge fan, but there's other games out there that i want to play, the exclusive ones mostly.

OK, I just discovered possibly the best thing about the Switch. I am out of town for 2 weeks, and when I booted up my laptop and discovered the internet at my hotel is one where you have to log in at their site first, I just assumed I wouldn't be able to use online on my Switch for the next 2 weeks just like the 3DS. But lo and behold, when I tried to connect, the Switch told me that I needed to log in and actually took me to the hotel's site, even though there is no usable browser. That is awesome. OK, so maybe it's not the best thing about the Switch, but it is still really cool.
Side question: is there any way to actually use the online on my 3DS here?

While this isn't a full test, it's looking very positive regarding Switch loading times for Tropical Freeze:

@Xyphon22 On your 3DS, connect to the hotspot, then go to the browser. Try going somewhere like Google then you should be taken to the hotel page.
