Is there any sites that highlight the best games on sale in the Nintendo e-shop? Just been scrolling and seen Golf Story and heard loads of good things so that's a definite buy. But it would be nice to not have to scroll through the whole site hoping stuff jump out at me.

@MightyDemon82 I use Deku Deals : ) They have a section for popular games on sale.
US is the default, but you can switch to UK deals.

@MightyDemon82 @Flippy Seconding Deku Deals, since they have a "hottest games" on sale section. Great site. It also tracks the history of price fluctuations and lets you know when a game hits a new all-time low price in sales.

@Ralizah @Flippy thanks guys. I'll check it out, my sister gifted me a voucher for watching her cat for a few days, so I'll go and start filling up the new Oled with some game(s)!

Well, he was wrong about the OLED Switch, confusing it with the successor, so I'm not sure how much stock I'm putting into what he says atm.

Clearly he knows things- he was the first (and only) one to insist DMC Trilogy was coming to Switch. But still. 2022 or early 2023 just doesn't make any logical sense, especially with high Switch sales are right now and with OLED just dropping.

So no, I'm not convinced. OLED buys at least two years before announcing something more. 2024 is my target date.

@JaxonH I think it'll come down to backwards compatibility and the chip shortage, if there's full backwards compatibility with Switch and they managed to get enough chips then I could see holiday 2022/early 2023 as part of Nintendo's new "do or die" mindset to try and prevent a momentum drop that's comparable to the late Wii era (Nintendo has mentioned they waited too long to release a successor to the Wii).

@Grumblevolcano
That's a fair point and one of the reasons I believed they would release a more powerful variant (which, it seems they wanted to but changed plans due to a number of reasons).

Still, one yr after OLED still seems too soon. Switch will still be riding high 2 yrs from now, of that I'm confident. And, let's not forget the other thing they said, which is they want to extend this generation.

Late 2023 trailer similar to the late 2016 trailer, with a January 2024 info dump reveal, and a March 2024 release.

check out the Animal Crossing Direct that is gonna detail the update that is gonna bring back Brewster to Animal Crossing New Horizon.

i like HD Rumble.

Oof. They want $50/yr for Online + Expansion Pass? You're drunk Nintendo.

I thought it would be $10 more. I really want those N64 games, but at $30/yr extra, I think I'm good. It's the same cost as buying 4 of them, the difference is not owning. Technically speaking the value is there IF you would have bought at least 4 N64 games per year on average (also accounting for Genesis games, I guess).

But uh... I actually think I'm good. They're gonna need to either lower prices to $30 or add GameCube if they want that much from me.

@JaxonH They added in the Animal Crossing DLC to inflate the NSO price, that Animal Crossing DLC is $25 standalone.

Hey, does anyone know if the subscription upgrade will keep the NES and SNES games? Or will it be just the ACNH DLC, N64 and Genesis games?

Hope you're having a good day.

BrazillianCara

On the one hand, I hate that this will add more reason for me to regret engaging with online communities.
On the other, using the subscription as a way to unlock DLC is an intriguing concept. I wonder what they can do in games beyond Animal Crossing.

@Grumblevolcano
Ya, that's fine for the first yr. But after that it's just too much.

However.

A family plan of 4 could negate the cost issue. Perhaps it's time to look into joining a group for a family plan. $80/4 is $20/yr, the same price I'm paying now.

That I can do. But I'm not sure what catches apply when doing a family plan. If I have to entrust my Nintendo Account to someone else, that's a no go. Could join with my bro, but that only takes it down to $40/yr. And he probably wouldn't be interested at that price.

Yes it keeps them. It's an expansion pass that adds on, not a separate offer in replacement of.

@JaxonH
What is Expansion Pack mean ?
I have suscribed $20 for Normal NSO.
If i have purchased $25 for HHP DLC, do i still have to spend another $30 just for an ACNH Expansion pack too ?

@JaxonH I have a family plan, with other two people. However since it’s Mexican you’d be paying about 24 dollars a month. Instead of just 20. Because Mexico.

I’m not sure if you’d be interested in joining, or how it would work with people from different countries. And of course, if you just renewed your own plan, it would add another layer of complexity.

@Anti-Matter An expansion pack is exactly what it sounds like - it adds more content. NSO's expansion pass includes Nintendo 64 and Sega Genesis/Mega Drive games, as well as the New Horizons DLC. Are you interested in the N64 and Genesis/MD games? If not, you're better off with just getting the DLC on its own if you like what said DLC offers.
