Bought Celeste, Earth Wars, Strikers 1945 and Zero Gunner 2 from yesterday's update. Had a quick shot of Earth Wars last night and for only £4 it looks like money well spent.

Just pre-loaded Dragon Quest Builders from the South African eShop for only 38 €. At less than 900 MB I didn’t think a physical would be worth it.

Gameplay matters.

Minecraft - the kids were playing on their ipads and I thought they'd prefer it on the Switch. One of them loves it, the other one prefers the ipad.

Despite setting myself a little rule of saving up for only a few key physical titles this year (likely FIRE EMBLEM, KIRBY, YOSHI etc) instead of consistently, spontaneously spending on Switch games in 2017 - honestly, crazy year of spending on both physical and eShop games for me - I've still managed to buy DOUBLE DRAGON (ACA Hamster), ZERO GUNNER 2 - (Psikyo Arcade/ZeroDiv), SUPER MARIO BROS. VS (ACA Hamster) and PULSTAR (Neo Geo Hamster) in the past couple of weeks. Likely pull the triggger on Psikyo/ZeroDiv's STRIKERS 1945 II next, lol!

Also just remembered having booted my Switch to play a game (actually just ended up perusing the eShop, looking at forthcoming titles, lol!) that I also picked up OXENFREE whilst it was on sale back when I bought DOUBLE DRAGON. So that's 5 eShop purchases in the last fortnight alone. Man, I need to start getting more resolve and leaving things in the watchlist for longer before buying. Already accumulating a growing backlog of unfinished games for Switch.

DBZ:X2. You guys advised against it as a non-DBZ fan....but it was on sale......I mean...that's a rule right, if it's on sale you have to buy it? It refused to DL all night though....and my net connection was fine so it's not me, it's Nintendo's broken eShop I'll have to check it out later.

@Torpian The cut down iPad version? But...but....why?

@Switchcraft Physical is cheaper with discounts in the US (and I had a $5 credit to spend by mid-month) so despite the small size I just pre-ordered physical. Demo is way more fun than I'd expected!

@NEStalgia I'm picturing you in Best buy (you are a generic white dude with the lego mini fig head in the form of the LOZ box art in my head) and you are like: "I don't really like DBZ...No point in getting thi- Wait? IS THAT A SALE STICKER?! Put it in the cart, don't look at me cashier...ring me out RIGHT NOW!"

@Ryu_Niiyama That's so wildly inaccurate!

.........it was the eShop digital sale (cheaper than physical price...) .........

NEStalgia

Ryu_Niiyama

@NEStalgia That's worse: you were just flipping around and saw the strikethrough of the price. Show some restraint man! Also thought you'd take more umbrage to you essentially being a walking mini fig in my head than WHERE you bought the game.

Mine was the Special edition of Xenoblade 2, but my mother bought me LA Noire for Christmas and that is technically the more recent game. Though I didn't buy it.

Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

I shouldn't have, but I got weak, and knew that Mario Kart 8 was a blast. However, I bought it physically this time, so now I know I have it physically. Let me just say, being able to play Mario Kart 8 online anywhere is a blast. As much as it seems like the novelty of a portable Mario Kart should be worn off for me (I've owned all portable Mario Kart games), Mario Kart 7 was nowhere near as fun as Mario Kart Wii before it, while Mario Kart 8 is a full-blown Mario Kart, but portable. It's great. (Plus, I'm really biased to bikes. I just like how they handle so much better).

@Ryu_Niiyama I'm a gamer. Being viewed as a minifig doesn't seem odd to me. I see myself that way by this point. I feel empty when i look in a mirror and don't see my Mii!

And i wasn't flipping around.... They emailed it to me. I mean.... Direct marketing.... That's a high pressure sale...... And the novelty ANY Nintendo sale being cheaper than physical..... That takes more restraint than, say, an Ami lamp....

My friend and I recently bought The Escapists 2. Needless to say the time flew by before we knew it. It was very hard to pull myself away.

Never take anything I say seriously. S'all you buddy. ;)
Mainly play on my Switch but I have 3DS, Wii U and PS4 as well.
Fave game series include: Pokemon, Smash Bros, Splatoon, Disgaea, Bayonetta, Dragons Dogma, Phantasy Star.
Looking forward to Arena of Valor too!

@NEStalgia "Ami Lamp?" You mean my Amaterasu Bust? That wasn't an impulse buy though....(me buying the Link BOTW statue was an impulse buy.).

...So I'm getting the drifting L stick on my left joycon. Do i have to send the whole system into Nintendo or will they take the joycon alone? Trying to decide if I should just buy a new set.

I just gripped Rocket League. I know I should have played it now, but tonight is the cherry!

@Ryu_Niiyama The light-up Amaterasu Bust? Yeah, the Ami Lamp. That's ok. I'm not jealous. A lot. Well, not too much. I can make a better one out of cardboard anyway. And play the game with it. Still hoping for Okami HD on Switch. It would fit so perfectly. That's the only reason I didn't buy it on the PSN sale.

Eww, drifting stick. XBox controllers do that if you as much as look at them. Never had another console do it until the WiiU Gamepad (thank you Bayonetta....) I think it depends on who you talk to as to if you have to send it all in or not. I do wish they offered advance RMA....

@Ryu_Niiyama You can send just the joy con, at least that's true in the UK.

@chardir Good to know. Hopefully NOA will do the same. I'll call them today.

Got a physical copy of Rocket League this past Saturday as I've never played if before, and I still actually haven't either as I want to finish DOOM first before I open it lol

Axiom Verge Multiverse edition (only my second Switch digital ) Dragon Ball Xenoverse II which came to 27pounds once I'd got $35 card to purchase it in the US sale. Oxenfree which is good but man those loading times. Zero Gunner, and Earths Dawn which at the price is a no-brainer. BTW cos have a US account, even though bought in UK now shows on Switch as Earth Wars!Though bought in last sale from few weeks back, gotta give a shout out for Riptide GP Renegade. Easily one of my most played games over recent weeks - it's awesome!
