@Aozz101x Either way it still should be cheaper then buying all 3 separate on the shop so I'm getting it. Plus it will save some room even if only 4 gigs or so.

That's disappointing. I understand downloads for beyond 16gb, but I'm not ready to accept them beyond 8gb.

And if they are using an 8gb cart (which they have to be, otherwise it would all fit on a 16gb) that means only ONE GAME on the cart.

And that's just not gonna cut it. Sorry. Can scratch that one off my list. I dont have the space for this. I'll accept it for AAA games or classics I really love (Mega Man, which at least had the good games on cart and it wasn't a continuous trilogy) but not this.

I held off waiting for trilogy because the file sizes were so large. Then they lose my sale over $2 more for a 16gb cart. Which I get it, its $2 saved, but what good is that if no one wants to buy the dang thing

@JaxonH Given the size of Banner Saga 1, I could see a 4GB cart being used. What's the point in having an 8GB cart if it's going to hold the exact same content as a 4GB cart just with more free space?

Think about the trick Capcom pulled for the Mega Man Legacy Collections (classic and X), they used the smallest possible cart that's enough to hold the smallest of the games.

@OorWullie
All it takes is one game to change everything, your total outlook.

I remember when I hated anything turn based or RPG. Seemed so dull and uneventful. I didn't understand the hook.

Then came Fire Emblem Awakening, which my bro really encouraged me to try the demo for. I liked it enough to order the game and give it a shot. And man was I hooked on that game. Used to daydream about at work.

I hope this game does it for you. I haven't gotten to the point I'm daydreaming about it yet, but I might. Gotta get past all their chapter 1's for now and kick the game into gear.

@Grumblevolcano
Ya, you're probably right. If it was 2 of the 3 games I would probably let it slide. Even if I dont like it But 1 game? No. I'll just skip it.

And it's not that I dont like digital. I'm almost to the point of preferring digital. Its just a space issue. I'm down to 120gb out of 544gb (512gb + 32gb). I Downloads must be reserved for the best of the best (Octopath got a download, Shining Resonance got a download, YS VIII and Captain Toad got a download) but these large file size indies have to come with physical. I just dont have space for this.

But ugh, I really want these games on Switch. Gosh dang it. I may just download all 3, screw their physical though. I dont wanna split the games between the two formats.

I'm really tempted to get captain toad on the 3DS, but I don't want to forgo the Switch version for it. I'll pick it up once I have some spare cash, that game is a gem

I've done exactly that. Bought it for 3DS over Switch and don't regret it at all.

@JaxonH Yeah I really never expected Switch would be the one to usher in PC-like "the physical is a box with a code inside"....seemed more like an XBox thing to start. It's weird, and I do agree with some. Nintendo ought to have set a policy to have a standard for the platform rather than giving publishers options to do what they please. It might have hindered some 3rd party adoption, but ultimately a company wants or doesn't want their game on Switch. Being told to fit it on the cart wouldn't stop them if they wanted to, and not having to sure isn't encouraging too many to join up.

@NEStalgia Doing that will definitely kill 3rd party even faster though, I feel.

Iirc it's the fact that Nintendo was so strict on the first place that caused 3rd party to slowly leave the platform? (Or is it because Nintendo's strictness was too weird?)

@JaxonH
I think that's a silly attitude. You're missing out on some truly great games. And if storage is really what you're worried about, obviously you'll save space buying the physical and having to add on a download rather than downloading all three.

rallydefault

NEStalgia

@darkfenrir It would make a dent, but I'm not sure it significantly would. Most 3rd party still doesn't care, and 3rd party that does care would pay the extra $0.90 per unit or go digital only (which is mostly the same thing.) Nintendo's old strictness was.....highly restrictive. They weren't allowed to publish more than a handful of games per year (EA is Nintendo policy compliant!) in addition to the quality checks, heavy fees charged, and cartridge mandates. Not the same league as "please put your product in the box before shipping, thank you."

You're telling me IM missing out on great games?

I buy more games than everyone on this forum page... combined

When I'm buying so many games I'm literally having to buy physical because I'm out of half a terabyte of space, along with 70+ physical releases, I am not the one missing out on great games. What do you want me to do- magically fabricate more space out of thin air? If I'm out of space I'm out of space! And I have the largest SD in the world offering me the absolute LIMIT of how many games can fit on the system.

Trust me when I say, you're missing 10x the good games I am.

@JaxonH not disrespecting your collection, but quality and quantity are not the same thing.

Yeah, August looks fine. It's September that's looking rough for anyone who's not interested in Valkyria Chronicles 4. Or maybe 1 as well if that actually does release in the west... or has English available to download off the JP eshop. I don't even know what if anything else is releasing that month.

Xenoblade 2's DLC should be September! I'm excited for that.

@Therad
No, quantity and quality aren't the same thing. But neither are they mutually exclusive.

What makes you think I'm not buying all the best games? All the games I buy are THE absolute best. So I've got half a terabyte of the best games on the system

So in my case, I have quantity AND quality, no offense (why you would think I fill my system with mediocrity and skip out on better games is truly beyond me- I've got half a terabyte of the best games money can buy, and anything I cant fit, its because I have 500gb of games I deem better that take priority).

Point being, no one has any ground to tell me I'm being silly or missing out, especially when I'm missing far, far less than they are. And that I can guarantee. Even this game- Banner Saga? Already own it. There's practically nothing I'm missing. Can anyone else here honestly say the same? If not, then ya really dont have any place lecturing me about missing good games.

@darkfenrir Oh right! Well... I have to finish that game first before I start on the DLC. I'm personally packed, so no games is fine by me. Especially with how Hollow Knight obsessed I am.

On other news, South Park: The Stick of Truth is coming out digitally in September, so add that game onto the pile.

@Anti-Matter Currently, I think the Expansion Pass is being released as a separate cartridge with the standalone DLC, and a code for the contents that affects the main game.

South Park The Stick of Truth coming to Switch!

It's only in digital form, but still. The reveal is hidden away in Ubisoft's quarterly financial reports, which, besides figures and numbers of the past quarter, also offers a glimpse of what the coming quarter has to offer:
